Release Josh Pillault From Prison

Josh Pillault was an avid gamer, and during an online game of Runescape, he and another gamer began exchanging insults.

The other gamer said that Pillault should go kill himself, and Pillault responded, stating, ‘he would not just kill himself, but he would take out a local high school.’ Once Josh made a comment on Columbine, the other gamer had gotten what he wanted, and replied ‘Knock Knock.’

‘Knock Knock’ referring to the feds coming and knocking on Pillaunlt’s door, which is what happened. Josh has been in prison ever since.

Josh’s mother argued:

‘Josh possessed none of the materials he would need to carry out such an attack, nor was there any good reason to believe he was serious.’ “His doctors have said he wouldn’t hurt himself or anyone else,” she wrote. “We actually have teachers who were willing to testify that they knew it wasn’t a true threat as soon as they found out it was Josh. Even his fellow inmates and guards have commented on how they can’t believe he is still in there.”

Seeing that their were no other options and hoping for an easier sentence, Josh plead guilty to the charges and is facing up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
