My soul is wrent with anguish over Josh Powell's murder of his sons.
Well, Josh got his children back on a "supervised" visit. Looks like
the grandparents were right--he was dangerous to his children. Unfortunately,
it's too late now for them. God bless them--and the grandparents who tried so
hard to keep them safe.
Re: SignatureHome | 3:46 p.m. Feb. 2, 2012 "Its time for the children
to return to the father. Another example of government overstepping it's
boundaries"It's time to these children's mother. Surely you
wouldn't want the children returned to their father if it turns out that he was
involved in her disappearance.If my wife and the mother of my
children mysteriously disappeared I'd do everything within my power to help find
her ...... and so would every other decent man I know.
Its time for the children to return to the father. Another example of
government overstepping it's boundaries.
For a family with a father that Josh has and the father Josh's kids have and if
Michael actually made this website and not Josh for his own purposes to
influence the judge and public, what a catastrophe for those children. The Powell family with the leader in jail for abuse type stuff and
failitating Josh for 2 years, more or less. Josh has never come
forward to help one bit to find the children's mother nor show any grief. The
only grief he has shown is when people try to pin him down on what really
happened. What a sad guy to have any children around.
would love to hear what has ever happened to susan?As yet she was never
found,leaving behind two very young sons.And all in the triangle of
a cold case yet to continued where abouts!!!! No body no end to this
Hearbreaking Dead End mystery.
It sounds to me as if the matter will be "under investigation" until
the children are old enough for social security.
To Rifleman | 10:06 a.m. Jan. 31, 2012 . . .It is unfortunate
that Josh has shown no interest in clearing himself from suspicion. ---------------It would probably be more comfortable for him if he
had, but he has no duty to do so. It appears that Josh Powell actually did what
his attorney told him to do -- keep his mouth shut when it became apparent that
the police were trying to "tag" him for the crime. If innocent, he
has no duty to provide information that could be twisted against him. If
guilty, he has no duty to incriminate himself. That's how the law works,
pursuant to the constitution.
Can we try and use some common sense here, please? You have to weigh one home
against the other. Two grandparents in a safe environment is better than a
father, who is still under investigation in the death or disappearance of his
wife with a father who is a child pornographer and voyeur. There is no
comparison. Safety is the number one issue for the children, regardless of the
adults. Even if there is only a slight chance Joshua Powell did kill his wife,
then we would be taking a chance with his children as well if he gets upset with
them. In addition, the courts will ask the children where they want to be and
weigh their desires as well as what is best for them. Lets not try this issue
when we really do not have the facts and let the courts and police do their
Re: Furry1993 | 8:01 a.m. Jan. 31, 2012 "there is no evidence, much
less proof, that Susan Powell is dead, much less murdered"Yes,
I suppose it is possible that Susan Powell has gone on an extended vacation
without her children. If they don't find her body the killer will go scot-free.
It is unfortunate that Josh has shown no interest in clearing himself from
Seems pretty simple to me.. Either charge the guy or return his children to
him. He was not a suspect of murder. He was a person of interest. I
think the guy is far from perfect but they are his children and big brother
should either charge him or stop harming his relationship with his children.
Does Josh have more than one brother? Or is this the same brother that was
written about last year?
Dear Flurry,My point is that you cannot possibly know everything the
police know. You cannot poosibly know everything that DCFS knows. Releasing all
of the evidence to the media would seem to be counterproductive.I
understand that he has not been convicted of anything but to say there is no
evidence against him is not appropriate. If there were no evidence DCFS could
not have removed the children.The charges of child pornography are not
just against the father. Josh faces charges as well.
With a custody hearing scheduled for Wednesday, the timing of the launch of this
new website is certainly fortunate for Josh Powell, isn't it?
Josh tells us that Susan has r-u-n-n-o-f-t with another man and despises Susan
so much for leaving the way she did that he doesn't leave a "light on"
for her.So, why does Josh still wear his wedding band? Is he really
this shallow, or did he divorce Susan and remarry?
I think we should leave this to the people in Washington who deal with these
issues all the time and advocate for the children. We don't want these children
becoming pawns in a larger dispute over the disappearance of their mother.
Anyone can make a website and say that it is someone else's site. The comments
appear to be the comments of the father of the boys and not an uncle that hasn't
put out that kind of discussion before.
The reason for the removal of the children -- that Josh's father who was living
with them had been arrested for possession of child porn -- is no longer
present. Josh has removed himself from his father's house. There is no longer
any reason for the children to be kept out of his custody.To cheffy
chef -- there is no evidence, much less proof, that Susan Powell is dead, much
less murdered. There is no evidence, much less proof, that she was harmed in
any way by Josh Powell. There is no evidence, much less proof, that Josh had
any idea what his father was doing. ResoluteVoice is right (quoting him/her) --
Josh has not been convicted or even charged with a crime in court. There are
elements of this case that appear over dramatized. The police department and
DCFS (my addition -- and the public) have rendered a guilty verdict without a
trial, and no one has done extensive digging into the motives of the
grandparents. The media has done a fantastic job of adjudicating this case. This reminds me a lot of what happened to Richard Ricci.It's
time for the children to go home to their father.
Re: Resolute Voice | 6:55 a.m. Jan. 31, 2012 The boy's mother didn't
simply abandon her boys and walk off the face of the earth. Most husbands and
fathers would have wanted to help the police find her. Josh was strangely
silent.For those with a short memory these boys were taken out of
their father's home because Josh's grandfather who was living with them had been
arrested for possession of child porn.
The boys were in a home with a father that is susupected of murder and a
grandfather who was just put in jail for hundreds of photos and video of women
and children in the nude. These women and children have been victimized in a way
that will always be with them. Josh did nothing to stop this.Who knows what else
will be found. The boys are safe now. If there were any cause for alarm with the
grandparents they now reside with social services would be on it right away.The comment from Resolute is very short sided. Does he think that the media
knows everything involved in the case against Josh and his father? Social
services would not have been able to remove the children without cause. Thank
goodness the grandparents have taken these children to safty.
It appears the site was taken down by the hosting service for violations in
their terms of service. Just another indication that Josh Powell's supporters
are as crazy as everyone has believed. My only wish is that the case could be
wrapped up with some arrest(s) so we can put this chapter behind us.
