Love the fact that the two (credible neighbors / witnesses) are so versed in police procedures.

Hey victim...be careful what you ask for.

why would they shoot an unarmed man in the back when the boy weighs around 150 lbs and there was 4 cops there?

well maybe they should have let the man get his gun as he told the deputies he was doing and let him shoot first then ask the deputy why out of 4 of them couldnt they have shot first? duh!

Nothing you just said makes any sense, if the suspect was unarmed and making threats, I see no reason why if there were four cops there they could not have tackled and handcuffed him.

Attention Arm Chair quarterbacks-were any of you there when this happened? Have you heard any SWORN testimony from CREDIBLE EYE witnesses? In your rush to judge, why are you finding fault with the law?
Who put themselves in this situation in the first place??
It's easy to question and criticize from the safety of your home.

Most of you people dont even know any of the people mentioned in this story!! I know 3 out of 4 of them, and jus because somebody has had a run in with the law, that makes them unreliable witnesses? What would Jason Turner get out of running his head about something he didnt know anything about?? He wouldnt run his head!! He keeps to himself! Most of the people in Groveton have had a "run in with the law"!! Nobody knows what those peoples life is like inside those four walls! Ive got nothing to say about what the law did, it will all come out some how! But that wife was afraid for some reason! If you have never lived that life "SHUT UP"! There are many of us that know where she was coming from! The kids dont need to be in that, they need to go to their daddys or somewhere safe! Kids never forget that stuff!!

I have been begging and pleading with my ex wife, to give my kids to me because of the unsafe environment. She assures me they are fine, then this happens.

Wonderful concerned father,why did you go so long without supporting your kids and have to be forced by the courts to help out.This man has never hurt his wife or your kids,you don't seem to be concerned that the police fired into the house with your kids inside. You could have easily taken your kids when your ex was a stripper,had felony charges for cocaine and child abuse.allegedly you were the abuser and she took the rap for you. Josh may not be perfect but he has been a good dad to your kids for 7 years.The wife wanted this man to throw a fit by threating to take the house and land that his parents owned before he was born. She drives a new vehicle, runs a garbage company, and has moved to a house on the lake that an old man put in her name.Get real Do you think somebody did this for nothing in return? He broke the windshield on the truck was thev reason she called the cops,to make sure insurance would pay,he didn't have a gun out but she told them he did. maybe she wanted the cops to shoot him. Maybe someone should see if she has a new life insurance policy on this man.She told someone it would be nice if he went to jail for a few days while she finished moving out.
Know them all too

You know them all but refuse to put your name, how brave you are. From one father to another, it's the right thing to have child support ordered, so that you have record of your payments. Money outside of childsupport has always been given to this woman, and she recalls none of it. Her kids didn't even know that man was paying child support. They were told he was a dead beat, and there's no surprise she hasn't told everyone else that. She has no respect for anyone, not even her kids. No respect because she stayed with a man (Josh) who made his kids pick up cigarette butts at a store because he needed to smoke. A man who choked his oldest step daughter, a man who walked around in his underwear in front of another mans daughters, and made beat them on several ocassions. Oh yes, let's talk about what a great man Josh was. lol He IS white trash, and so is his wife, and you are all fools if you think that the concerned father didn't care for his children, you have no idea of the threats made on his ex wifes behalf. I like how you all think you know the whole story, but you really don't.

That man did not weigh 150lbs. He weighed about 200, the same as his wife. No joke, he looked pregnant year round, and so did she. I'm surprised their children ate at all with all the money spent on booze and drugs.
