I do not believe Alina. I doubt that many people do.
I feel really sorry for the Powells. They are all alone, feeling like everyone
is against them. I went to Alina's website and watched the videos (by the
way, thanks for allowing us to see video of Susan) but unfortunately these
videos do not prove Alina's argument. She thinks that showing us a few
"good times" with Steve and Susan prove that Steve wasn't at other
times immoral in his admitted infatuation with her. The video also shows Josh
loving his boys ("good times") but that also doesn't prove that he
didn't hack them with a hatchet before burning them to death.
Just one more offshoot of a pathetic tragedy.
As another commenter likes to point out this trial is about charges that her
father took pictures of little children in the bathroom of their own home.
"But you know when you put lipstick on a pig, at the end of the day,
it's still a pig", and at the end of the day there is a reason why
Stephen Powell's wife left him.
Rifleman,I agree with the point you were making. I wouldn't say
that it's putting 'lipstick on a pig' as the videos are clearly a
genuine recording of events that took place. To me these videos are more like
looking at space. While a scientist might think he can explain the universe
after he's seen 1000 stars, there are 1000 x 1000 x 1000 x 1000 more....
and them some... and some more... that the scientist has yet to observe.A video may show a indifferent or even a positive interaction with
Steven Powell. It's not like it would surprise the world to see a positive
moment between Josh Powell and his own children. I'm sure they day they
were born, he didn't have the same mentality as he did the day he took away
their lives.The point is, there are good and bad moments in
everyone's life. All that we as a people need to care about are where the
law is concerned- and so far the Powell guys have shown everyone enough of one
side to justify how the everyone has reacted.These videos don't
It's clear that mental health is a serious issue in this family.
And the followers of the website total the number of people in the Powell
Alina can't produce home movies where Susan left her kids alone with
Steven, can she? And I think Alina cannot deny that Susan and Josh moved away
from him. How sad that Alina is blind to the need for HER to be truthful. I
wish all the families well, but the truth is, Steven has issues, none of which
are addressed or acknowledged by Alina and perhaps her brothers. And Steven may
one day tell them the truth; I hope so. May the boys and their mother rest in
peace and may the rest of those in this tragedy find it as well. To Steven,
tell the truth and accept the consequences. It's the only way everyone can
heal, including himself.
arizonasnow7: Why do you feel sorry for them? Both Steve an Josh committed
crimes. As far as Im concerned they got what they deserve. Joshs killing
himself and his boys was proof that he killed their mother and it was a very
selfish act. He murdered his boys.
snowman, I feel sorry for the whole family, not just Steve and Josh. However,
feeling sorry for criminals is not a bad thing. I still believe in the justice
system and expect Steve to serve the appropriate time for his crimes. I only
hope he and his family will soften their hearts towards their supposed enemies.
And I hope Steve will show a little contrition for his role in taking himself
and much of his family into some dark places.snowman, don't you
feel sorry, at all, for Alina? She is obviously set on a bitter path and that
will mean much misery.
Is Alina the Sister of Josh Powell that was to get all the money from all of the
life insurances of Susan,the little boys and Josh Powell?....I am very suspect
of anything that comes from her.
