Two Little Boys are Dead Because of a Court-Ordered “Supervised” Visit
UPDATE Sept 2021: I have come to believe that Jeff Crippen does not practise what he preaches. He vilely persecuted an abuse victim and spiritually abused many other people in the Tillamook congregation. Go here to read the evidence. Jeff has not gone to the people that he spiritually and emotionally abused. He has not apologised to them, let alone asked for their forgiveness.
Two little boys are dead. We ought to be outraged. Their mother is dead as well, having disappeared in 2009. Their father, Josh Powell, was the focused person of interest in her disappearance, and custody of his two boys was given to his in-laws recently after Josh’s father was arrested for assorted sexual crimes. Today, Josh Powell murdered his two boys and killed himself in a final cowardly act of vengeance. And it happened right here where I live in the Pacific Northwest.
Why should we be outraged? Because in the “wisdom” of our court and social services agencies, one single female state worker took the boys to their father’s house for a “supervised visit.” One woman, taking these little guys to chat with the primary suspect in their mother’s homicide. You can bet this was against the will of their mother’s parents, who had custody of them. And when the social services worker took them to the house, they ran ahead of her to the door. Josh Powell took them inside, blocked the door so the social worker couldn’t enter, and blew himself and those little ones up in a fireball. Why? Because in the “wisdom” of the “professionals” it is ALWAYS best for children to have a relationship with their father. Even if he has sexually molested them or worse. Even if he is the primary suspect in the murder of their mother. Gotta have a relationship with good old Dad. The Pro’s know. Mothers – well, they are just overly protective and biased to know what is good for their kids. And yes, I know as well as anyone that in SOME cases the mother is the abuser. But not in most.
Over and over and over again this is happening. How long will it continue? Who will be held accountable for this? Who is going to be held responsible for sending one woman to a homicide suspect’s house with that murdered mother’s children, to sit in the living room and watch as Dad has a nice little interaction with the children? Surprise, surprise. He easily kept her outside and then killed those children.
Yes, my tone here is harsh. This should make everyone who knows about it fightin’ mad.
