Well obviously Josh is a great guy and that is why he has great friends. He seems like a fine, intelligent person and very grown up for his age. I don't understand why older people don't cut him some slack on some things here. I personally don't know him so that is just my 2 cents. I don't understand why people would be snide about how he has so many friends like it's a bad thing.
Honestly, I heard about the shooting and all of the details over on Facebook by a friend of the victim's long before Josh posted anything. My Aunt heard it on the scanner when it happened (she did not post anything). She also heard that Mr. Rickett's son persuaded him to turn himself in, and it sounds like the rest of the family found out about it right away.I am sorry if this was a terrible shock to someone in the family that wasn't in the loop, but news travels fast (I live over 1300 miles away) and that is just the way things are these days.
Also, as far as Milescity.com, it is a pet peeve when people try to be all coy with the "I know something but you don't" type of postings about tragic events. It is especially annoying when they keep making leading statements without giving any names, leaving everyone reading the posts to wonder if maybe something happened to one of THEIR family members.
