Midwest mom makes great comments
Mr. Powell is simply following the accepted American practice for evading
prosecution. However, someone should point out to him that refusing to answer
questions, and using torturously parsed phraseology only works if one is an
elected official in the executive branch of the federal government. The method
doesn't work for ordinary suspects. Regardless of how he tries to dodge
inquiries, he will get no peace until it's all over. And it won't be
all over until his wife, or her dead body, is found.
@ BrahmabullDid I write that I didn't like reading the hundreds
of Powell articles?It's a great way to kill time when I am
stuck on long-winded conference calls at work. I'm glad that
you enjoyed the article and my comment enough to comment on my comment. Should
I assume that you were also on a conference call?
Why don't we lay this thing to rest? The reminder of the horrific death of
2 children is beyond anyone's normal mental capacity. What about those
(West Valley police and the Washington officials) who pushed him to this mental
status? None of them had been held responsible for anything. If they were the
experts, why didn't they see it coming, after all the pressures they put on
him? It is common sense, if you intentionally push someone, he or she will reach
the psychological breakdown point. Josh Powell did and they had no plan what to
do when he was at that point. Everyone who had a part in the death of the 2
children should be held responsible. The police, the expert psychologist, the
judges and lawyers, social workers and anyone who took part in this
psychological warfare on Josh Powell. Josh Powell was a coward and no one can
defend him. Others pushed him to the death of his 2 children. They had a part in
the death of the 2 children.
Midwest Mom just posted something everyone should read. She's absolutely
Ironmanbecause people like you keep coming and reading the articles
and commenting on them. You don't like it, don't read it. Pretty easy.
"Rights that suspects have" are the rights belonging to every citizen,
whether you agree with them, fear them, like them, or not. It is amazing to me
how many gun-toting "patriots," who fret over their 2nd amendment
rights, will scoff at any attempt to show how too many guns promote violence in
our society -- for them, innocent victims of gun violence appear to be an
acceptable cost to protect their rights. Then those same freedom fighters want
to jump to reduce, or remove, the rights of the accused as soon as some official
botches and investigation or can't find the evidence to prove what
"everyone" knows. Liberty was never supposed to be tidy. If you truly
believe in what the founding fathers tried to create, then you protect the
rights of the worst that society has to contend with, in the interest of
protecting the best that true liberty has to offer. Only brave people can do
this. To use a worn-out quote: "Those who would give up essential Liberty,
to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
-- Benjamin Franklin
Everyone knows who killed Susan Powell. The only problem was trying to prove
it. And, any attempt to find the body would provide evidence as to
who killed her, so the killer was most definitely motivated to not help find her
body. Throw in all the (sometimes frustrating) legal protections and rights
that suspects have, and you end up with a mess like this.May God
bless Susan Powell and her children. My wishes for their killer are

Slow news day. Dredge up another Susan Powell story.
Much of what has been told in the papers ignored the bold truth that Josh Powell
was the one who knew what really happened. He got around the truth by evading
it. He ran. There were a lot of "red flags" that we find out after the
fact. It is too sad what he did to his sons, and made it so no one would know.
But he is not free, even now. But any professional profiler could
have nailed him early on or read his body language which speaks louder than
words, or lies. If only . . . Words cannot explain the anguish her parents
went through and still do with the loss of their daughter and not having the
truth come out.
Why on earth did they not follow up on that statement by the boy? Was he ever
interviewed again or was that line of questioning simply dropped? The more I
read and hear, the more I think the murder of those two children was a tragedy
resulting directly from very sloppy police work.
BYUalum - if Susan Powell were your relative or friend wouldn't you still
be seeking answers?
I know this guy does not want his laundry aired in public...he was a creap and a
total failure as a husband and father. His personal values and habits were
disgraceful. He was a three time killer...maybe more. His father has not
come forward with all the details he knows. If you don't like the
story...don't read it. Local police failed and look more like the Keystone
Enough!! We have heard enough about this story and more. Move on to other
