As I just looked in on my sleeping kids,I just can not imagine how someone can be so evil as to hurt one.

I just can't wrap my head around the fact that there are parents who would murder their own children.

Too hard to fathom.

I concur with both of you. I didn't realize how much one would be willing to sacrifice, protect, and care for a human being until I had my daughter.

Wasn't there a recent thread that blamed women for men committing violent acts?
I wonder where that OP is on this topic?

I think there's alot of sh*t that when on that we'll probably never know about now. I think anybody that does that to their own flesh and blood, hell even to their pet, has a screw loose!

All I can say that a man that proclaims to not ever be "able to harm" his wife proved the worst suspicions beyond a doubt. The kids talked he acted again! It was Susan the first time and now three. Poor babies to have a sicko for a father.

Yeah, I also heard it on ABC this morning that before they were killed, the kids have just started to talk about the night of their mother's disappearance. The kids said that they went camping with their parents but that "mom was riding in the trunk".

Purgatory is too good a place for Josh Powell.

again, iMHO, this is a complete failure on the part of social services, the judicial system and law enforcement. They all failed these 2 boys when they knew his guy was a liar and nut case right from the beginning. Yeanother example of somebody who knew he was going down and he was going to take his whole family with him (so those little boys couldn't talk any more). As soon as those boys started saying "mommy was in the trunk", an arrest should have been made. But he was still allowed "supervised visits". I would think any social worker or child protective services person would be trained to enter the premises first and check it out for safety before allowing any children to enter a home. They were eye witnesses and should have been believed. Those kids would still be alive. This is just so incredibly sad. I really feel for those grandparents.
