  1. If Joseph can see my message – What happened to you is the most despicable and cowardly act! You are not the loser here, the coward who attacked you for being who you are is the real loser. They are jealous of who you are, how loved you are and that they possibly can never become what you can and it is that jealousy added with mental sickness they suffer from of which you became a victim. Remember not to give up or be afraid, while still act sensibly when in danger and raise alarm and do not take the law in your hand, remember you are not alone, and giving up is not the answer. Speak up, talk to people share your story and stand up stronger and wiser. And if you see this, please contact me so we can share your story with more people out there, in your words – showing your true strength!!

    Lets coin a new word. HOMOPHOBOSAPIEN> these are humans out there that belong in some subclass of the species, the homophobosapien. kind of a reactionary fearful, cave like being. unsure of his place in the social structure. so hair trigger violence against strangers and groups that their less developed brains can not understand is a common characteristic. While shrewd and capable of premeditated thought, the homophobosapien is generally a reactionary, troglodyte-esque, slow thinking being, more prone to violence than understanding or solution. While
    Jesus tolerated them, but did not condone their criminal acts of violence.

  3. Joseph you are loved by many and what makes me really mad is the Missoula police are not doing their job but I’m not surprised there are not many good cops here in Missoula were fighting for you and I hope the city gets sued and you get a lot of money for a new house cause you deserve it man and the guys who did this to u deserve a tiny ass cell and no soap or clean clothes they are dirty and should be treated as such
