Here is a picture of his Facebook page, which contain two Twitter messages from his account that synced over...

Even the message before he got up there, he obviously new the risks he was facing. In this case, I don't think, even being 20, he was ignorant of the dangers.
Yes, I had already seen the twitter messages he'd left. He obviously knew there was risk involved, but we can't be certain he took it as seriously as he could have despite what he said on twitter. He apparently felt it was more important to do his job, rather than go to a superior and tell them he didn't feel safe. This is the kind of thing I was referring to when I said 20-year olds don't use the best judgement. This kid never should have been put in the position to have to make that kind of decision.
