Shane Johnson Was Stabbed by His Victim

shanejohnson.jpgUpdated – I had some really unnecessary stuff in the last paragraph I have removed and I have updated the entry after having received a few emails from concerned family members.

Shane Johnson allegedly stole some money earlier this week from a business in Tempe Arizona by staying inside after they closed and then robbed the place. Luckily law enforcement was able to obtain surveillance video of the robbery which became extremely helpful Monday when he broke into a home and tried to rape a woman.

The good news is that while he was trying to take the sleeping woman’s cloths off she fought back, grabbed a sword and stabbed the fool. Here’s a tip for any would-be rapists out there. If you see guns or swords lying around the house of a potential victim, they just might use them on you. Duh.

Police were able to pick Shane Johnson up on Wednesday when they received a call about a proweler and found him in the area. Using the security video they were able to identify Johnson.

The thing that we  don’t consider sometimes is the damage that addicts along with other criminals do to their family and loved ones along with the victims. Take Shane for instance. He has parents (who have several other happy children that have never been in trouble), a little boy and other friends who have been forever hurt. I’ve been in touch with a family member off and on since I originally posted this and they are all hurt and damaged. Maybe not as much as the victim, but the psychological damage that drug addicts can do is horrendous. Having experience addiction in my family first hand I can tell you that one of the hardest things to do is to let go of it. You can’t take care of them by enabling them to keep on the path of destruction and they will never quit until they’ve hit rock bottom and really want to quit.

  • I don’t know if you could have done anything differently. Addiction is a pretty hard monster to break and until a person has really truly hit whatever their bottom is and truly wants to quit using there is nothing you can do. Enabling them by trying to help generally backfires and just drags the addiction out even longer and sometimes turns the addict to hate the very people that are trying to help.

  • Toby, you are right, it could have been my friend or a relative that did it. If that were the case I damn sure wouldn’t be here defending them. Perhaps I am just too cold hearted but while I can still love my friends and family there is no way in hell I would be able to defend them on something like this.
    Only losers blame drugs for their problems. Drug abuse is only a symptom of the real problem, whatever that may be. Maybe in your case it’s lack of spell check.
    As far as photos, my photos are all over the site, as where I live and even my phone number. It’s no big secret because I am proud of what I do.

  • I am completly shocked at what I just learned about Shane Johnson and the crime that he is accused of. I grew up with Shane in a trailer park in Tucson AZ back in the early 80’s. We were part of a group of friends that were always together and did what was cool. We first started out by breaking small rules such as jumping the wall at the local Jr High School to go swimming in the pool to sneaking out late at night and riding our bikes and acting like we were part of a motorcyle group. We eventually tried drugs and that became a big part of our life. School soon became less interesting in our teen years and everything seemed to revolve around drugs. We had it all in our minds..We were part of a social group with long hair and had girls (who loved long hair rocker guys) all around us. Life was great but then I grew up and I guess shane didn’t..
    He was the type that could talk to a beautiful woman and then next thing we knew he was either getting her number or taking her back to his place. He had the presence and the attitude to do anything he wanted to do and that is why I am so supprised at learning of his fate..I haven’t seen or talked to him for almost two decades but I wish I had.I feel for the victim and the family of the victim and Shanes family because I know them well but not for Shane..
    A lot of people say that it’s the parents fault that people turn out to be rotten but i have to disagree. There were 6 of us that grew up together and did the drug thing and 4 out of the 6 turned out ok (don’t know what happened to the leader of the group). I am a financial advisor/ Banker, #2 works for a city department, #3 is a foreman for a construction company, #4 works in manufracturing #5 ?, and #6 Shane….Well I am going to guess his new career is not going to be pleasant..It’s not the parents fault in this one I know for a fact because I grew up with this man and I did envy him. He was loved and never went without. He always had the cool toys from tricked out go cart to a kick ass camaro..
    Well I guess we create our own fate and Shanes is sealed for the rest of his life.
