There has been a lot of effort to vilify (and try) Josh Powell in the media.
Why shouldn't he be able to defend himself?Did he kill Susan Powell?
I don't know. I don't even know whether she is dead. I DO know that if there
were sufficient evidence inculpating him, he would have been arrested and tried
a long time ago. I also know that, due to the efforts of Susan Powell's
supporters, there is no way Josh Powell could get a fair trial OR an impartial
jury.Remember Richard Ricci? He's the guy that EVERYONE thought
kidnapped Elizabeth Smart, and he was vilified in the media, just like Josh
Powell is being vilified now. He ended up dying in jail, being charged with,
and incarcerated for, a crime he did not commit. When the FACTS were
discovered, it was shown that he had nothing to do with that crime. Will the
same be true with Josh Powell? I don't know. BUT I want to see all the FACTS
before "running" a kangaroo court against him. This NOT the time to
judge him -- that time would be in a court of law.
@Furry,so his behavior is acceptable to you?
His campaign to defend himself seems pretty natural to me. There is nothing
"bad" about someone's character for trying to defend themselves. If
it turns out he is guilty then so be it, but as the facts stand right now, he
never committed a crime.
There are so many inconsistencies an illogical circumstances in the
disappearance of Susan Powell that it is difficult to know where to begin. It is so common to sympathize with someone like Josh Powell after enough
time has passed to forget the details of the tragic events of his wife's
disappearance. But, his behavior in the immediate aftermath, his odd actions and
lack thereof when confronted and his actions now, are anything but those of an
ignorant bystander. We may never know the truth, but Josh Powell does, and he
has masterfully buried it somewhere beyond the reach of the public and the
professionals who have done little to resolve this case.

like yourself refuse to believe him because you know what is in their hearts,
and watching dozens of crime shows make you an expert?I agree with
Furry and Midvaliean
If Josh wants to defend himself, then he should cooperate with police and take a
polygraph test. That's what innocent people do. Guilty people try to profit
from the tragedy, provide nonsensical answers to routine questions, and refuse
to cooperate with authorities. He might get away with murder, but that doesn't
make him innocent. At the very least, he is guilty of being a liar and a
horrible husband and father.

less acceptable is the attempt to convict him my innuendo and rhetoric when
there is no hard evidence to prove that Susan Powell is even dead, much les that
he is the one who killed her. I support the legal process, not kangaroo courts.
