Josh Pillault : I have had so many comments from some of my FAVORITE YouTubers and RuneScapers, this has been absolutely surreal. Silentc0re, WildMudkup, Count Dankula, WildMudkip, Statistically Challenged, Kaya Orson, I mean WOW. I'll have to edit this because there have been too many. Things are blowing my mind and I humbly thank you all and would like to ask opinions, even though this video has already slowed to almost NO views. What exactly would you guys like in the form of content? I've seen lots of interest in prison stories and answers to my cases like this one was, many people have requested music, and lots of people want a RuneScape series which I have been considering putting on a separate channel. What do you guys want the most? Reply to this comment and tell me what you would like from me, and I promise you, I will move mountains to achieve it. Thank you so much for everything, people. It means the world to me.

jammath12345 : You seem like a well spoken thoughtful individual. One of the benefits of this whole situation is that you have the spotlight and a platform for a bit, don't let it be fleeting.

One video and you are at 11k subscribers (+1, i'm gonna give ya a chance haha) and 53k views, turn this into something man!!

B leck : I suggest people Google >UNITED STATES of America, Plaintiff–Appellee v. Joshua Brandon PILLAULT, Defendant–Appellant. Before forming an opinion. I will highlight some parts of it, for possibly, why the court decided to sentence him to 6 years in jail. >The FBI's forensic examiner, who testified at Pillault's sentencing, performed an examination of Pillault's computer and found numerous documents pertaining to the creation of bombs and other explosive devices. Pillault's computer also had folders entitled “columbine” and “serialkiller,” which contained pictures relating to the Columbine shooting and other high-profile serial killers. The forensic examiner also found evidence that Pillault had searched on YouTube.com for “Super Columbine Massacre RPG,” a game that recreated the Columbine Massacre. In addition, Pillault had searched on YouTube and Google for instructions on how to make a sawed-off shotgun and information about Molotov cocktails. Part 1 >The first witness was Dr. Heather Ross, a forensic psychologist who was ordered by the district court to complete a psychiatric examination of Pillault and to report on mental illness, treatment options, and risk assessment. Dr. Ross testified that Pillault started using drugs and alcohol at the age of fourteen and that prior to his arrest he smoked marijuana and drank vodka every day. Dr. Ross discussed Pillault's mental history and explained that Pillault had previously attempted suicide and was hospitalized for aggression and depression. Dr. Ross concluded that “should Mr. Pillault continue to abuse substances his risk for future dangerousness ․ is moderate to high risk; but would be much lower if he was to be able to avoid using substances in the future.” Part 2 >The district court also heard testimony from two of Pillault's ex-girlfriends, whom we will refer to as GF1 and GF2. GF1, who started spending a significant amount of time with Pillault in the eleventh grade, testified about his aggressive tendencies and described him as a bully who frequently got into fights. She testified that Pillault was obsessed with Columbine and that he admired Dylan Klebold, one of the shooters involved in the Columbine massacre. According to GF1, Pillault planned to attack Oxford High School and drew specific plans in a notebook detailing how he would carry out the attack. GF1 claimed that Pillault warned her not to go to school on April 20, the anniversary of the Columbine shooting. GF1 also testified that on one occasion, Pillault asked her to take him to Home Depot, where he purchased a long copper pipe that he said he later used to make a pipe bomb. >GF2 testified that she had known Pillault since the fifth grade and that she was dating him during the months surrounding his arrest. GF2 agreed that Pillault was obsessed with Columbine and claimed that he frequently threatened to reenact Columbine at Oxford High School. She believed that Pillault's threats were serious and that he truly wanted to go through with the attack. According to GF2, Pillault had a few specific plans for how he would initiate his attack, one of which involved breaking through the glass walls of the school's cafeteria using pipe bombs and smoke bombs. GF2 claimed that Pillault planned to save up money to buy guns and that she and Pillault went to Wal–Mart to look at gun prices. GF2 testified that on one occasion, Pillault tried to make a bomb out of a glass Sprite bottle, which he filled with kerosene. GF2 testified that she had known Pillault since the fifth grade and that she was dating him during the months surrounding his arrest. Part 3(Think this did the biggest damage) Given that the guy had a history making these threats, mental/addiction issues which manifested themselves into aggression and depression bouts, and had done some research into making molotv cocktails and sawed-off shotgun made him a very possible risk which the courts acted strictly against.

Syprene : I say the same shit you said on a daily basis and I'm pretty sure nowadays people automatically assume people are trolling. Welcome back. Wanna play runescape?

Alex Arnold : love you bud

Matthew T : are you maxed yet though?

Shmoop Bismark : After such a horrific and unprofessional sentencing I am glad you are back and in a good mindset. Now stop XP wasting

Rinky Dink : You made the best of a horrible horrible situation, fair play!

Legendary : damn, i was acc tearing up wtf

MadMrMatter : What did you say when other inmates asked you why you were locked up for? 'i made terroristic threats in a game called RuneScape' and did any of the inmates know what RuneScape was?

Riley Tucker : Hey, man. I know it's not anything compared to what you went through, but I do feel for you. My mother lost her mind(something the family is still in the process of dealing with 2 years later) and attacked me, hurting herself in the process(and breaking a few thousand dollars worth of stuff) and the police came and arrested me for domestic assault because she said it was the other way around and I had to quit my job and move in with my grandmother for a while. I got fat and stopped doing anything I cared about because I was so stressed. I can't understand what it's like to be imprisoned for years, but I can understand the feeling of isolation and picking yourself apart and feeling like everyone is against you, to some extent. I'm glad you made it through with your head and I hope your life from this point forward is good enough to make up for those six years lost. Best of luck!

Heych : >trolling so hard you troll the government and get jail time You're like a hero to us man

Griffith Did Nothing Wrong : Please go on PKA, you'd be a great guest

Fædëd Jërrÿ🙃 : The same thing happened to me man but I was 14 and thankfully they let me off easily...

Reversal : Inspirational, thank you for sharing your story Josh. I think a great starting point for YouTube is to create a Twitter account so you can get yourself updated with what is going on within the YouTube community in general. If I can recommend a Content Creator who can help your content move to the next level I'd say Gary Vaynerchuck has the ability to bring the best out of people, he's probably one of my favorite icon/inspiration that prefectly demonstrate how hard work and effort will bring someone results. Good luck with everything you do, I'll keep an eye out for your content Josh for sure!

Armanor : Welcome back, Best Wishes from Hungary, here you max would have gotten 200 hours of mandatory work as a sentence for something like this. Be well, and have a happy life now!

Joshua Hines : I'm a correctional officer and if a inmate told me he was imprisoned for making a comment on runescape I would have figured him for a liar, this is is insane take it from me, you did not belong in prison.

Trash Bunny : Sweet dude! Now you'll get to play Runescape!

Sworn Dungeons : Bro if anyone deserves to make money off these YouTube runescape videos its you. Subbed for sure

Timothy Distel : wow man. This really moved me. I'm blown away that you were able to take that time and try to better yourself mentally. It takes a strong person to take a prison sentence like that and eat it. I wish the best for you man

Jeremy : Glad you made it out hope you can enjoy the small things in life and enjoy the people around you that care. ...You say prison does not rehabilitate people but people should realize a lot of people that go to prison are just stupid low life human beings so of course they are going to return. Wonder how that prosecutor can feel good about himself knowing he put an innocent man in jail .

Jowvyel : I remember hearing about you so long ago, I’m so glad you back. It’s one heck of a story

oi : Now it's not cool to be edgy

MrStefanLee : Just learned your story from this video (via Count Dankula!) - you're very aware, but the cause of your last 5 years are complete madness! So proud to see you've embraced a potentially destructive situation and used it to propel you into positive opportunity. That takes an incredible amount of maturity! Bloomin' well done, buddy. I'll be sticking around!

Xela sartyL : Wow what a tale you've been through..Crazy to hear this sincere perspective, great insight ! Honestly wish you all the best with whatever you put your mind to, you're obviously a high functioning A CLASS bloke. It's inspiring to see how you've taken everything in your stride too better your life and anything you have the free will too do ! I look forward to seeing video's in the future, and wish you nothing but good fortune through your long life you now get too embrace <3

Mattnel : i queefed and a worm came out

Dewicre : Funny thing is, the police will "monitor" certain "dangerous individuals," nut they won't act on it until it's too late, but they will take you in for saying something in a game (justified, or not) even if there is no evidence of you being capable of doing anything horrible.

gandalf the grey : Please release your songs :)

UIM Verf : Happy to see you back dude. Glad I subbed a while ago :D
