It's heart breaking that Josh Powell decided to comment suicide, and felt the need to take his sons with him. Â Read more. I don't advocate suicide, but, if he wanted to go, then, he should have just blew himself up and left the children alone.
Unless you haven't been following the story, Josh Powell is the husband of Susan Powell, 28, who disappeared in December 2009. Â At that time, Josh Powell fell under suspicion, especially, when his son said that his mother was in the trunk. Â She has never been seen again, nor has her body been found.
Sunday, Josh Powell, during a Child Protective Service supervised visitation, blew up his home; killing himself and his two sons, 5 and 7. Â CPS delivered the children for there scheduled visitation, but, Powell, immediately, took the boys and blocked them from entering the house, before the explosion.
My question is, how will this effect the way CPS handles visitation orders in the future? Â As a father, Josh Powell, who was under suspicion, but, nothing had been proved against him, had a right to see his children. Â However, Child Protective Services should have known that this man wasn't stable. Â No one can predict the future, unfortunately.
Because of the Josh Powell incident, I am afraid that this will make CPS policies harsher, in the future, on parents who may have lost custody of their children, but, truly want to spend time with those children. Â How do you think this will effect future Child Protective Services cases, especially ones were the parent is under suspicion of a crime?
