    Should Joshua go to jail?

    He obviously knew Attinger and his Cemetery Wind were hunting Autobots to supply his Transformium.

    Also Galvatron killed civilians. He created Galvatron even if he was manipulated by Megatron.

    By sending his prototypes to China he is selling weapons to a potential enemy state.

    I didn't think he knew they were hunting Autobots.

    I also believe he should go to prison but the government will probably cut him a deal and cover it all up lol.

    When he did find out he clearly didn't care at first.

    But I think, with the technology he has created (and is one of the few who understands it), his penace might better be served helping the Autobots in any possible way rather than doing jailtime.

    Or what tony said- there's no way the government would give up that tech. Cut him a deal to keep his mouth shut in exchange for info.

    Obviously, yes. The only thing he's good for is giving Cade another shelter.

    He should be shot by Optimus.

    Then we can have a fresh batch of;

    "MURDER PRIME"
    "HE NEVER DID THAT IN G1"
    "G1 PRIME IS MORE HEROIC"
    "WHAT HAPPENED TO FREEDOM IS THE RIGHT OF ALL SENTIENT BEINGS!"

    yeah.....

    :lol 

    I'm sorry, I couldn't help myself.

    I'm up in the air myself about whether he should go to jail or not. I got the impression that he knew about some of it, at least when it came to the trading Optimus for the Seed. I really need the blu-ray so I can re-watch that scene between him and Attinger and really soak up the dialog better. I know Darcy didn't know about the Autobots being hunted. I suppose though he made up for at least some of it by helping the Autobots, giving the Seed to Optimus and saving many, many lives. But at the same time, I think he should be made responsible for all the havoc Galvatron and the drones did.

    Josh should pay for the damages, that's it.

    I don't think Joshua can be blamed for how the drones turned out, it was megatron/ galvatron who turned them into enemies of the public. I don't think Joshua knew about the autobots being killed by humans. The worst I think he knew about was giving prime to lockdown. Even still, based on Joshua's actions throughout the film, Joshua shouldn't go to jail, but seeing as he is a billionaire, he should definetly pay for some of the damages

    I think Joshua and his arrogance can be blamed in the sense that he was messing with stuff humans really shouldn't be (that's humans for you though) which started the whole mess in the first place and it totally backfired on him, which was perhaps expected. I do agree he should pay for damages.

    Joshua probably won't do prison time...though he'll be sued out of his ass.

    His secretary will hide him out in China probably. Or he meets Walter White and they make Methormium.

    "I got what it wanted" - Got Galvy the seed, he was like 'oh shit'.

    You also saw his face when Cade was on the phone to him talking about Galvatron! So he hadn't a clue about it all.
