I hope his novel fails big-time. No matter which side of the religious issue
you are on, it seems people ought to have enough sense not to support the ego of
a criminal. Who knows what an inflated ego would bring next? Not anything
good, that's for sure.
Insanity is amazing, isn't it?
I think he is foolishly optimistic if he thinks he's going to get sympathy
How would you like to call this dude dad?
Mr. PowellYour son killed his two sons and most likely killed his
wife too. You raised a monster. Yor are upset with your daughter in-laws
father? Why? You seem incapable of seeing reality. The proper response on your
part would be to feel apologetic to your daughter in laws family for what Josh
has done. Please trust me when I say you are not centered, meaning you are way
It doesn't matter what books he writes or what he says. The bottom
line is that the Gospel of Jesus Christ containedvia the The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is trueand he nor anyone else can change
I'm just hearing about all of this for the first time, but WOW. How sad
and pathetic this all sounds. Inappropriate, laugh-out-loud moment of this
article (about a convicted felon/sexual predator/dad in deep
denial)..."...he might just live in his van." How terribly typical.
The part that irritates me the most is when he says that his son was a good dad
to his boys. so now murdering the mother of your children and then blowing up
your little boys constitutes everything a good father should be?! despicable!
Steven Powell...- Father of a double (triple) murderer.-
Father of a child who aided the double (triple) murderer then committed
suicide.- Takes voyeuristic photos of underage neighbor girls.- Has
a crush on the double (triple) murderer's wife.- Plans to live in a
van down by the river once he's released from prison.I'm
sure he'll be a wonderful spokesman for the anti-LDS lobby.
He is right about needing family support. Most of us have mental and physical
issues we deal with ourselves and our extended families. I hope he can find the
acceptance and help he needs from his family and those in the community outside
of prison. I remember having friends who everyone else thought were
weird, controlling and not all there mentally (I am sure some people think I am
too). After becoming a trusted friend, they blossomed and became contributing
members of the community. Just listening without judging is a good place to
start. Also, learning to laugh about some of our differences helps.
It's amazing how some people can manage to find ways to believe anything
they want. The human mind can become so twisted when individuals choose to
follow evil paths. It's so scary that there are people like this in the
world and soon he will be walking the streets again.This man has
destroyed his family and he can only find ways to blame everyone else. Poor Susan! She just made a terrible mistake in who she married.
It's so sad.
Let him write. The more he writes, the more info prosecutors will have.
"...had frequent communication with Josh Powell, who is suspected of killing
his wife, through a device that encrypted their conversations. Investigators
were never able to decrypt those communications." Is this device
commercially available or was it created by the Powell boys? I am having a hard
time believing that these two could have a device that the government could not
decrypt. If that is truly the case, someone needs to sell that device to the
By their rotten fruits you shall know them.
OneAmerican: Encryption programs are widely available and some are even free.
The government has similar and better methods. But the nature of encryption is
that it is very easy to create and very hard to crack. It's not like a
fancy physical lock where the manufacturer can show the government how to unlock
it. Once the data is encrypted, only the right code can unencrypt it.Encryption is widely used in business and elsewhere. The fact that it can
also be used to cover up crimes is an unfortunate side effect.
I wonder if the government can release the encrypted info out to the public and
see if any hackers or some kind of decentralized network of computers can try to
I don't think Josh Killed his Wife. I DO think he know that something was
going to happen that night and that he left to clear the way for things to take
place that night. I also think his father, Steven was directly involved in
Susan's disappearance and would not be surprised if his brother who
committed suicide had some involvement as well. I wondered if detectives ever
looked into Steve's phone records, credit card charges and any other
potentially related trip to utah during the days previous to Susan's
disappearance. Same with Josh's brother.
