JOSHUA DIDNT FIRE ANY WEAPON! AND ONLY JUSTIN IS BEING CHARGED WITH ATTEMPTED MURDER. I HATE HOW ALL THESE PEOPLE ARE SAYING THINGS THAT ARE NOT TRUE. ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS JOSHUA IS NOT A BAD PERSON AND I DONT APPRICIATE EVERYONE MAKING HIM OUT TO BE.

AMBER - You are an idiot. He's not a bad person??? Just someone who was robbing a cop at gunpoint during a drug sting... What part of that is OK?

Amber! I agree with The Third Chimp. You are a Moron....I am sure he was just an innocent bystander. he was forced to go to that home with his face covered...he must be an upstanding citizen...He is a low life piece of shit and you are a product of your enviornment...if you catch my drift!

All I can say is you play with fire your gonna get burned. First of all if he's not a bad person then why is he hanging out with people that try and rob police officers because they were doing a drug bust?? He must be a real great person to hang out with druggies and attempted "cop Killers".

I can't believe all the idiots on here wanting this boy to be free. If you do the crime do the time. He was old enough to know better. He knew who he was hanging with and what he was doing. Personality wise he might be a nice person but he made a bad choice and he needs to pay for it!!!

AMBER IS RIGHT...JOSH IS NOT A BAD PERSON... I GREW UP WITH JOSH AND HE HAS NEVER MEANT ANY HARM...FOR EVERYONE THAT KEEPS SAYING JOSH IS SUCH A BAD PERSON, YOU ARE WRONG. YEA, GRANTED..HE KNEW WHAT HE WAS GETTING HIMSELF INTO AND HE IS OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW RIGHT FROM WRONG...BUT THAT DOES NOT MAKE JOSH A BAD PERSON. SO EVERYONE NEEDS TO SHUT THE HELL UP IF YOU DONT KNOW...YOUR ONLY GOING BY HEAR-SAY...FREE LIL JOSH!

They came storming in with guns and faces covered with masks. NO, he's not a bad person, the guy next to him is.... If he would have just stayed home, mabey we would believe that.

if making a bad choice makes a a bad person then i guess prob everyone is...i aint even much know him but thur friends hes a good guy..fu*& what you say he didnt know the re-action to the action he was doing...and when he did he stood down..people you need to get your life in check and stop trying to judge someone else's dont make a preamble thought on someone you dont know..no one that does a crime and doesnt murder or try something with a kid there max time should be the years they have lived...its in-justice.there should be some kind of lobbying for people 25 and under.i know many people who have went to jail facing 25 years got out on bond after 2 months and changed man...stop hitting them when there down you got to help these kids

Throw the punk in jail. Also, throw the dipshit who keeps screaming to let the THUG go. I hope he rots in jail, he deserves it.

Who cares whther the kid was bad or not? People aren't arrested for their character but for their actions. Joshua's actions say he wanted to spend years in the slammer. Jeez, he earned himself the time.

how can you say that he is a bad person? you can say that the choice he made was bad, or that his actions were bad but you cant judge a person whom you don't know or have never met. I am sure we have all made bad choices. the one josh made was a bad one. But don't judge him. Who the f*ck do you people think you are? Take your opinions and shove them up your a**

Matthew 5:44-45
But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.
Joshua Giannico made a mistake just as we all have. I know Josh personally, he is remorseful for his actions and has asked God for forgiveness. Man was not put on earth to judge others, for we ALL fall short of the glory of God. Although he is locked up in prison, he is free on the inside. So when judgment Day comes he will enter the Kingdom of God while all who judge will fall into the fiery pits of hell. I love you Josh and i know your prayers will be answered. I guarantee you will not be in there for anything near 40 years. Prayers go up and blessings come down.

P.S.- Joshua Giannico's Motion for Appeal just got GRANTED!:) See you soon bro.

Thanks for all the support good and bad. yes he went down the wrong path, he did wrong and needed to be punished.However 40 yrs. he did not kill anyone. there should be a second chance he was shoot 3 times. The papers state he is proud of being shoot 3 times,that came from his mother 3 shoots and GOD did not take you..You are hear for a reason and GOD has a plan for you..little Josh her baby.until you walk the shoes don't judge.there is not a day that goes by that we don't think of the undercover officer and Josh.yes Eric you are so right and you are a wonderful friend and it is not to late for him..

Hahahaahaha Joshua! I remember his dumb butt in high school.. he'd always try and act big and bad, it's funny where that got him.

Guy who's spent multiple years in prison. Tainted his record. Will now be cleaning the dishes I eat off of in resteraunts.

Oh, karma
