    It's all coming out now...

    Before he set fire to his home, Powell sent his attorney an e-mail saying simply: "I'm sorry. Goodbye."
    He also sent e-mails to his pastor and others just minutes before the fire, giving instructions on how to handle his end-of-life business, according to Troyer. Powell donated toys and books to a local charity, seemingly to clean house, he said.
    The spokesman added that authorities found two five-gallon cans of gas in the home, one of which appeared to have been lit right next to the bodies, which were found together in the same room.
    Late Monday, the Pierce County Medical Examiner's office released the cause and manner of death on Powell and his sons. All three died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Both boys also suffered chop injuries to the neck; the younger boy had the same injury to his head. Powell's death was ruled a suicide, while his sons' deaths were determined to be homicides.

    that's so damned disgusting - he must have truly hated those children to cleave them up like meat.

    No one sensed how much he hated them? How ****ing deranged he was?

    Everyone seems to be suffering from an inability to recognize real danger and evil these days: how is it that they were blind when we are not?

    I've felt that so many times - I agree. But we can't keep falling back on the idea of a hell in order to make ourselves feel a little better about things that happen. We have to learn from our grotesque mistakes in our legal system and improve things so these same problems don't continue to happen time and again. Our law is broken and must be repaired lest more and more children continue to suffer at the hands of their already known to be ****ed up parents.

    I agree, although in this case Susan Powell was also a victim not a perp. I doubt that was what you meant anyway. I have friends that knew her. They are devastated by this and says she was every bit the nice woman that she has been portrayed.

    We certainly have common ground on this...

    I was speaking more broadly - not just this case (and of course I didn't mean to imply that susan was a bad mother by pluralizing 'parents' - but you realize that) I was refering to a broader spectrum of different cases in which troubled parents were suspected - and law was semi-involved . . . but they still managed to bring harm to their children. Or - law had evidence but didn't take any action.

    Just a few minutes ago I received word that an 11 year old boy named Braydon is cancer free after his bone marrow transplant (November). Freaking awesome news...why do I mention it?

    His Mother went to High School with Susan Powell. One of Susan's late sons was named Brayden.

    On one hand, in the same community, you have a Father throwing his son's lives away like yesterday's garbage...and on the other hand an entire family and community fighting tooth and nail to save a boy's life in the other...

    The irony is painful.

    Re: Blast kills husband of missing Utah woman, 2 boys

    This entire story makes me absolutely sick to my stomach. The state dropped the ball on this. He should never have had home visitation with these kids. He should have had to go to a neutral location, be searched, and then have visitation in full sight of at least two adults.

    There isn't a name vile enough to describe this foul creature. He went after his children with axes, then set the house on fire while they were still alive. I cannot imagine the anguish the grandparents and other relatives of these children must be going through, knowing that the man who killed their loved one was left free to slaughter his children as well.

    Repulsive.
