Just horrible Beach!! I have no words! This woman's life will never be the same. I think I would need a rubber room.

OMG, even worse, the monster told his kids *the caseworker overheard this from outside* that "he had a surprise" for them! Sick bastad! This has to be the worst news I have ever heard in my life.

Default As if it couldn't get any worse.....

Quote:
SEATTLE – Westboro Baptist Church, an anti-gay church best known for protesting military funerals, says its members will be at Saturday’s memorial service for Charlie and Braden Powell, the two children who died when their father allegedly set fire to his house.
The small Topeka, Kan.-based church, known for its extreme opposition to homosexuality, claims the boys' deaths are payback from God over the Washington state Legislature's support of gay marriage.
Hundreds of people have already vowed online to show up to keep the Westboro Baptist Church from disrupting the funeral, which will be at Life Center Church in Tacoma at 11 a.m
U.S. News - Anti-gay Westboro Baptist Church to protest at slain Powell boys' funeral

These sick f****s will do anything to push their sick agenda.

Tacoma is 70 or 80 miles from me; I'm tempted to try to get up there to be part of the blockade to keep these sick-o's away from the funeral.

This news has me just furious....and so freakin' sad.

The family is asking people to stay away:
Quote:

If, on Saturday, you plan to celebrate the lives of Charlie and Braden Powell at their memorial service, please, come and be welcome.
If you plan to protest a few hate group members who have said they’re coming in from Kansas, please, reconsider.
Chuck and Judy Cox, the boys’ grandparents, ask this of you. The Rev. Dean Curry, pastor of Life Center church, asks this of you. He has volunteered the sanctuary at 1717 S. Union Ave., for the 11 a.m. service.
Curry also asked the same of Fred and Marjorie Phelps’ family. He left that message on their Westboro Baptist Church’s phone after they tweeted they intended to parade outside the boys’ memorial service.
The Topeka hatemongers claim that when Josh Powell hacked and burned Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5, he was carrying out God’s vengeance on the state of Washington for legalizing gay marriage.
That’s a new low in the quality of their hogwash, and it has set well-intended but unwelcome plans in motion.
Motorcycle groups, contingents of veterans and gays, Occupy Tacoma and Seattle and hundreds of individuals and families responded over Facebook and on blogs with pledges to put themselves between the Phelpses and the memorial service. Bikers promised to rev up a mighty roar to drown the Phelps’ voices.
The Cox family does not want that, Curry said.
“They want this to be about the kids,” he said. “They want these children to be remembered as happy boys.”
He wants the day to be about Jesus’ love, and free of protests and counter-protests, “even if on the surface, the aims are more noble.”
Any protest, from either side, he said, would sully the event for those whose hearts are with the boys.
Either go to funeral to celebrate Powell boys' lives or stay home | Kits Merryman - The News Tribune

I was thinking about going - and my son wanted us to go - but I guess we won't, even though my goal was to not be part of a protest but to be part of a human barricade, keeping the Westboro sick-o's away from the church.

This just makes me ill.

Like father like son. Josh Powell was most likely victimized by his own father Steven Powell. I hope the man never comes out of prison.


U.S. News - Detective: Josh Powell computer depicted parent-child sex
SEATTLE -- A computer in Josh Powell's former home in Utah had animated images that depicted "incestuous" sex between parent and child, Pierce County authorities said, and a state official said the material prompted a judge to order Powell to undergo a psycho-sexual evaluation just days before he killed his children and himself.

Pierce County Sheriff's Detective Ed Troyer told The Associated Press on Thursday night that the images collected by investigators in Utah two years ago were realistic computer-generated depictions of "incestuous" parent-child relations.

The documents and images were recovered by police in West Valley, Utah, and sent to the Pierce County Sheriff's Department under a restrictive court order on Feb. 1, NBC station KING 5 reported. According to Washington's Department of Social and Health Services Public Affairs Senior Director Thomas Shapley, the material prompted the court to stop a process that likely would have returned Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5, to their father's custody.

Shapley said the material found on the computer was so disturbing that it prompted the state psychologist consulting in the custody case to change his opinion and recommend that the court prevent the return of the children.

NJ- There are no words...only tears. Those poor boys. That poor caseworker. Those poor family members who are having to deal with all of the latest details and findings. OMG...I'm just sick.

Cinebar- The first time I really stood up and took notice of those sick f***s who go about protesting funerals and tragedies, as some sort of "God's vengence" on sin, was during the Joplin, MO tornado. Again...no words can be said which wouldn't have to be edited out. Let's just say it would be difficult for me to encounter people like that without completely losing all of my composure and telling them what the future holds for pathological, evil, sick bas*ards like them. They will be joining Josh Powell, wherever he is. I couldn't go to the funeral, I really couldn't. I'd get in trouble, I just know I would.

Virgode- And yet they let the boys see him in his home, rather than in a public place. He knew they'd be allowed in the home, therefore, was able to plan his monstrous acts. Stupid......just stupid.

This case, as usual, mistakes were made. I listened to the 911 call made by the social worker, and was appalled. The 911 dispatcher told her "officers respond to emergencies first"...now, while this may be hindsight, I would think that any CPS social worker who calls 911 should be put pretty close to the top of the list on emergency response. Not be made to spell out her name, the name of where she is..."Does Powell have one L or two L's?" Ridiculous! I think that while 911 operators should triage calls...a CPS worker calling should not be dismissed, that should be considered an emergency.

That being said, I would not be a CPS worker or 911 operator for anything...and those jobs are very low paid, sadly.

OMG...I just read that! Wow, pertinent question here....Why, in the HELL, were those pornographic images found on his computer TWO YEARS AGO and yet only forwarded to WA state Feb. 1st?! Are you friggin' kidding me!? Those images were not shared with the inlaws' attorney!? Anybody else here getting the image of Jack Nicholsen, hacking a hole in a door, sticking his face through it and saying, "Heeeeere's Johnny" ?

Sick, sick monster, who apparently was the son of a sick monster. Burn in hell you sick bas*ards. Learn from your mistakes, oh ye with authority, lest you kill more innocent people.

Beach- I want to bang my head against a wall with this case! It sickens me.
The drawing the older boy drew about mommy being in the trunk was last year! And said mommy didn't come home with us!!! Omg. Why didn't law enforcement arrest him back then..


Side note...Dr. Phil has Susan Powell's sister and Powell's best friends are on. The friend said Susans marriage was going bad back in 2005 when they moved to Utah.
