'It's not fair everybody has been taken away from our family,' Susan Powell's sister says
People will pretend to know why he donated the toys and whether his 'not wanting
to let them go' was genuine or putting on a show.In reality, Josh
Powell could have done any number of these things for any number of reasons.
Many people condemn judge with utter hatred. Some people assume they know his
motive. Again, I don't know that we know anything less than his killing the
children. For this, he was wrong. His sanity, motives, and any other thing
people will talk about are irrelevant to me. What matters now is that everyone
will face the appropriate consequences in the end and justice will be met, to
whomever and however it need be done. What matters in our lives is how we move
forward.The Cox family may always feel that Josh's father knows
Susan's whereabouts. If he knows, hopefully he'll tell. If he doesn't, hopefully
the Cox family can move on.The Powell family has also lost someone.
Despite everyone hating Josh, there are those that still love him. For all
persons concerned, I offer my condolences and assurance that Justice cannot be
escaped and that the Children are with their eternal family.
This is so horrible. If Susan is no longer alive, she's with the boys. Maybe he
thought he'd be with them forever this way... but it wasn't the answer. Satan
usually tells people they will be happy and have every blessing if they do his
will. This is a lie. The truth... "thus we see that the devil will not
support his children at the last day, but doth speedily drag them down to
hell". I won't assume I know what Josh faces now. All I know is that doing
this to children isn't right. It isn't of God. This was wrong. Horribly wrong.
Josh may not have even been alone in knowing he was going to do this. Others may
have done things to separate this family. Whoever did anything wrong to make
this situation worse, they had better start rethinking their lives right now.I am so so sorry for those who have lost loved ones in this terrible
time. You will be with them again.
Re: VoiceI do not hate Josh. I don't think most people hate Josh. I
think that he is a coward and he repulses me. I am sure he disgusts his own
Re: A voice of Reason | 5:50 p.m. Feb. 6, 2012 "Many people condemn
judge with utter hatred."Hatred is the wrong word. Contempt
and disgust are more descriptive in light of evidence suggesting Powell used a
hatchet to injure the boys before setting off the fire and explosion that
finished the job.The boys have be reunited with their mother while
their father has been sent to associate with his own kind.
MD and Rifleman,I agree. And my concern I suppose isn't about
hatred, but about people letting their feelings motivate irrational ideas- such
as taking custody away from all 'suspects'. I'm only trying to advocate our
current legal system. While it seemingly 'allowed' this to happen, the
alternative would certainly be worse.As for disgust, I am
indifferent until I am presented reasonable enough information to make my own
personal judgments. Until now, I found nothing to condemn any actions as
disturbing, etc. The explosion enough was wrong and bad and so on. After reading
about the Hatchet, I would gladly label this whatever people would like. I'd
gladly be his judge if asked, I'd gladly anything to see justice take place. I'm
right there with everyone emotionally, just not on some of the arguments some
people are making.
