    I am wondering how this could be called a 'supervised' visit. Was the social worker supposed to have been in there with them? Who was supervising?
    My prayers are for the innocent.

It has to do with good/evil in this sick world but joy comes in the morning in knowing we will see our children again. I really feel for you as it has to be hard trying to understand why some are taken and those who want and love children don't get the chance. I think we are not supposed to understand why but it sure does make you stop and think. Bless your heart again and hugs to you.
    My wanting children and never having one, I guess was God's will. Maybe God didn't think I deserved a child.

    As far as I know, I never offended God, but my dearest wish was for at least one child.

    At any rate, my pain is nothing. All I care about is the pain inflicted by JP on two innocent babies and the fact that he most likely killed their mother as well.

    I am choked up at this point and glad he is dead.

    I have so much to say, but I can't get my words out properly. I thought that maybe a bit of sleep would help,.. hugging my children extremely hard and sending them off to school would help.. but...

    I prayed all night long that someone, somewhere got an email/text/vm that will lead to Susan.

    I know that I am really reaching here, but it's the last silver lining I have in all of this.

    God Bless the Cox family; I am not even a family member (just knew vicariously) and I am floored.

    Floored... and on my knees praying.

    Yes, according to the head detective on the case Josh and the boys and the supervisor were on the porch and Josh let the boys in the house and he stepped in after them and shut her out and locked the door.

    Good... I'm glad they will be expected to answer some tough questions. Like we have seen all too often, someone dropped the ball here with these 2 little ones and in the end it was the innocent and helpless who paid for it. I'm SICK of this happening time and time again in cases where parents murder their children. If the parents won't protect these kids, and the state won't protect them... THEN WHO WILL?
    I so appreciate and understand your frustration with everyone who had something to do with allowing these precious children to be victimized and murdered by their own Father. I do not blame the State, nor LE, nor the visitation supervisor, nor a failure in our system. I blame Josh Powell for this horrendous tragedy.

    Laws in this country are based upon the assumption that everyone is innocent until proven guilty. There was nothing else that DCFS could do (IMO) in that JP was never charged with Susan's disappearance, murder (?), or even child endangerment when he admitted he took the toddlers camping in a snowstorm (IIRC). CPS could not take away his rights to see his children unless there was evidence he was a significant danger to his children. By not allowing him supervised visits . . . that essentially relates to severing a parental/child relationship without the appropriate legal "termination of parental rights" procedures which allows the parents opportunities to ameloriate the issues that brought the children into (foster/kinship) care.

    Furthermore, the children have the right to see their parents as well. For those of you who have followed the Sky Metalwala case, (also in Washington State) we were all rooting for little MM to go home to her Daddy, Solomon (and still are thankful). MM (age 4) was placed into fostercare when her Mom reported little brother Sky (2 1/2) went missing from her car when she left him alone, claiming she ran out of gas. No one had seen Sky for many weeks (if not months) previously. He still has not been found. Solomon's rights to visits with his children were revoked until he completed expensive classes for domestic battery, based solely upon mother, Julia's allegations.

    Both cases compare and contrast how CPS and family courts attempt to balance the needs and safety of the child vs. parental rights.

    I think there are some people who are just so evil that nothing can or will stop them from achieving their goal. The particulars don't matter, what the system did or didn't do is irrelevant. If not this way, JP would have done it somewhere else in some other way. I really believe the ending would be the same if he'd had a completely supervised meeting in a very public place; he just would have used a different method. So I blame JP and only JP. There was no way to stop him.

    It just breaks my heart to hear of people who WERE blessed with children and then killed them.

    What a selfish act that can't be forgiven.
    It must be especially hard on you to see such wasted blessings, {{{hugs}}}

    God Bless and keep this case worker-at least she is alive to bear witness. To fill in the blanks. At least she can give context to this horrific act.

    BBM: I agree ...

    I was wondering : is this Judge elected -- or -- appointed ?

    If elected, I predict he will lose next go round ... and If it is an appointed position, how long is the appointment ?

    I dont think you can treat everyone as if they would kill their children or a spouse because of a dispute.

    BUT-I do think there are many tools available to determine who is likely to. A man who has murdered his wife because she had discovered "the man behind the curtain" and was planning on leaving him, has a high probability of murdering his non custodial children in order to spread as much pain and suffering as possible.

    Did I mention I AM GLAD he dead? And heartbroken that he took those two innocent babies with him?


    Sometimes it's just too much trouble to breathe. But it is a reflex. And so we all just keep on despite the hurt, the horror, and the WTF moments.

    I agree with you but do not understand why the supervised visits were not held in a place of neutrality (ie.. restaurant, park, chuck e cheese, etc..) I do believe there was a failure in the system that this was not reinforced and I do hope that something positive comes out of this vile act in the sense that in the future, when a parent loses custody of their child(ren) that standard of supervised visits in a public place will be reinforced.

    I wish I could believe he will really pay. Maybe someday I will believe that, but right now I don't.

    Right now, in this moment in time, I feel like the bastard won this last battle.
