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.

Silentc0re : So proud of you making this video man 💙 can't wait to see more from you

Fressh : Holy shit, welcome back. This is actually insane.

Touch of Chaos : Damn! Wrongfully imprisoned you need too sue everyone for max profits fam.

Mr Bug : You're damn sexy btw

B Will : Well like glad you're out. Unfortunately some things to said did warrant a appropriate response from authorities, but I personally feel jail time was far too extreme. I'm glad you're fucking out, welcome to the world! Don't play fortnight. And fuck dude, that part about your gf and family members forgetting about you and then acting like they were there for you I felt that though the way you responded. You look and act so mature, I'm jealous. I'll be keeping up with you for sure, you got some wisdom bro

Statistically Challenged : This is some real shit, damn, welcome back man!

Simon when he fell on his face : He missed so many good games :(

MastodonManiac : Glad to see you made a youtube account, nobody deserved what you had handed to you. I've said the same shit to people online. I think a majority of young males have. The positives are that you got to read a lot and work on your musical skills and seem very well spoken and intelligent. All the best in your future!

Abyss : What a great video, horrible what happened to you, been extremely empathetic since I seen Dan's video. You're a very good speaker as well. If you ever want to pk on runescape with me on my stream i got you :) PS: Make a twitter, lot of runescapers use twitter now.

Jamie Pine : what an incredible story. i can't imagine what that must have been like, but your attitude and charisma is incredible. my advice with youtube, while I am hugely interested in everything you learned or got up to in prison, make sure to focus your channel on other things too. Keep those storytime style videos spread out with other things that you're interested in, music, gaming, comedy all things you demonstrated interest in here. That way you'll grow without being just known as the dude that went to prison. You're clearly very intelligent and have talent, so make sure that shines through on YouTube, that way you'll be set to succeed. I wish the best to you, I've subscribed and joined your Discord, hopefully I'll see you around!

Gudi : that is one hell of a story. good to see you seem to have come out of the ordeal on top.

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

The Martoon : Only finding out about all of this today because this video was in my Youtube recommendations. I genuinely can't believe your story like holy shit. I'm really glad you found some positivity in the midst of this and hope the government gets sued to shit! Hope you exceed in your music or whatever you plan on doing next!

Zulu : :~)

Vash The Stampede : Sounds like the 6 years in prison was more productive for you than 6 years of mine outside.....interesting.. also, have you considered stand up comedy as an outlet? you gave me a few gut laughs. Glad your out man, time to scape up for some lost time.

rp : Who reported you?

Danjuw : A+ for governments that jail kids for making edgy jokes online....... -__-

Garfield Campbell : Thank God you told you the truth. The people must know. Man I'm glad we use to jam together. Can't wait to jam again. Much love.

Kn1cknackz0 : You received the same sentence for making an edgy comment as some people do for committing actual serious crimes. Glad you're out :(

Daniel Peterson : RIP 5 years of XP

James Micah Hayden : on your 92nd day in prison did you realize that you were only halfway to your 99th day? On a serious note, good luck, use the spotlight you have now and turn it into something, ill sub, cheering for you man.

Jelly bro : Josh Pillault was arrested for 6 years but we didn't catch Nickolas Cruz until he acted on his threats?

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.

steamingwillybeamen : Cx

ZT : Get this man on the H3 Podcast

9HP : I have been following your case for a few years now & that is some real shit you went through for something thrown soooo out of proportion, something my family has personally suffered from with a prison sentence as well on one of the closest people to me. It is what you make of it though! I am glad to see you out and doing well Josh! :D Live & love life, one day at a time! <3

Matthew T : are you maxed yet though?

Mattnel : i queefed and a worm came out

WildMudkip : Thanks for sharing your stories and welcome back!

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

Beta Male : I was given a 12 month custodial sentence (got out in 5) when I was 17 (I'm 22 now) for a pretty bad assault, it was self defence, but I had no way to prove it and he was worse off than me. The thing that blows my mind is I met dudes who had robbed shops with knives, beat people within an inch of their life and even one dude who was there for touching his sister. none of them had a sentence longer than 24 months. not a one. I can't believe you spent your entire early 20s in prison for talking shit online. it genuinely makes me sad as fuck. best of luck for the future, man. seriously.

Pizzles Tech Time : God bless you my friend. Glad you made it out okay that's total BS that you even had to go.

nostalgia junkie : must have been trippy to miss 5 years of culture

Count Dankula : Welcome back my dude.

boaz : I am so sorry for this man, he comes back from prison to EOC (evolution of combat) god be with him.

Yowai Kuma : Sweet dude! Now you'll get to play Runescape!

Steven Handjobs : Now it's not cool to be edgy

Еоп твою мат блать : And Bill Cosby is still walking around the streets 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

Chunk : Wow. This is an awesome and educational video. We are alike in many ways and this could have literally happened to anybody. I have weird shit like that on my PC because its fascinating used to name my rs chars Bundy related haha. You seem really smart and got a good head on your shoulders. Wish you the best!

gandalf the grey : Please release your songs :)

Legendary : damn, i was acc tearing up wtf

BananaDoe : Oh crap I watched chemistry videos on YouTube for my chemistry class, feds watching me.

ya boy Eric : bruh this dude aint go to prison he went to college

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!

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

Mattes : best YouTuber origin story

Trey Warner : I remember reading about this ages ago. It's cool to finally put a face to the name, I actually know someone who went through the same process of this whole thing that you did, Just without the incarceration. I'm sorry to see that you didn't have the same luck as my friend. He made what I assume are mostly the same comments, and Someone from the UK called their local police, And they called Canada, And Canada's Police got involved as well, He went through a legal battle like no other, His family Remortgaged just to afford all the legal expenses. It was a rough time for him. Welcome back Josh, I'll be looking forward to your videos in the future, Consider me subscribed man.

Tanjum Gaming : Wow, when i saw that a gamer was raided and sent to prison a few years back i never thought i would see you back on the internet and speaking on it. So great to see you back and staying strong, much love buddy keep it up and never give up in life!

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?
