@So. Cal ReaderThe point CJB is making is that if the young girls and
their family had never known about Powell's sick acts and the pictures that
were kept in his private possession then they would not have suffered the
traumatic effects. The victims did not know they were victims until the
authorities told them they were and only after that were they affected. It is
unfortunate that in order to seek justice for what Powell did, that the acts
cannot remain sealed from the public and victims so that prosecution could
proceed without causing the trauma to the victims.
@ cjbExcuse me, but where do you get that these "8 & 10 year
old" little girls didn't suffer an "actual harm?" And where do
you get that the pictures themselves were made public? I've never seen
them, nor even know the names of the little girls involved. Law Enforcement
discovered them in their investigation of this beast and did what they are sworn
to do & have a duty and responsibility to do: report them to the DA's
Office for their review. I guess I understand where you're coming from--
everyone involved should have not done anything with these pictures, which is a
crime to even possess, let alone to take & store the pictures. Remeber, this
beast is serving time based soley on these pictures. And how do you know these
girls haven't suffered any harm? I can't tell you how many people
I've met with and counseled over the years who have very traumatic times
getting over "acts from the past." These girls families, because of
their ages, have every right to try to squeeze every last cent from Powell.
As much as I disagree with everything Steven Powell and his murderous son I have
to agree with him on this. The girls he took pictures of suffered no actual
harm, but if they did ,then law enforcement, the press and perhaps the parents
themselves who all made these pictures public and notified the girls all share
in any damage done.
Powell = Vermin, life behind bars!
I still want to know why this guy keeps popping up in Utah newspapers?
Now you can tell the truth what happened to Susan and her where about.
Steve Powell:Two dead sonsTwo dead grandsons.One dead
daughter-in-law.$1.8 million is merely chump change for the legacy
you helped create.
$1.8 Million is cheap....how about we wave it and you show us where you buried
He should be offered a "deal," if he provides location of Susan Powel.
Not a "free Ride," but a deal good enough to entice him. No punishment
given him will bring Susan home, but a deal might, help bring closer to her
The idea that we're considering releasing him from prison is too much. The
last thing we need is another human beings life, destroyed by this perverted
It ain't enough.
He's lucky he's alive to complain
I hope these young girls and their families are able to collect every cent that
Powell has access to. Mr. Powell and his family haven't quite understood
the choice and accountability-portion for their sick actions.
We, the people, say his jail time was too little
