Professor Lynch, I am proposing this article for your blog.  I believe it could bring commentary from the audience about the justice system, sadness for the family and other feedback.

Thank you.

What a coward that man is to take his kids lives. What an unbelievable story.

This is a very sad article. If Josh Powell was truly innocent and didnt murder his wife, then I can understand that all of the things he was going through just simply "pushed him over the edge". Often times people who really need either psychological and/or emotional help dont get them in time. However, No matter what really went on, those poor young children should never of had that happen to them. It just simply wasnt there fault and in no one way should of lost their lives at such a young age. With all the horrible things you hear going on in the world it really makes you think about where we all will end up but I still like to think positive.

It is scary and sad that this occurred and in front of the social worker who was charged with their care. I have to believe that humans have been committing such atrocities forever, just that we have more media coverage of it now. I recall this case and suspected, in all my cynicism, that he was responsible for his wife's disappearance. It's like a scene out of the remake of The Crazies.

As Kirk Graves puts it, "He's a narcissist and he has no love for anyone but himself." this story is so awful!!! and i dont understand why, if the man is about to be tested for psycho-sexual evaluation, the children would be taken to his home! Taken for granted there was nothing the social worker could have done- i'm sure that if she was about to have made it inside the home with the kids, Powell would have blown up that house with her in it!! sad...So sad!

This guy was a coward. He took his wifes life and then his kids because he knew that they knew he did it. (My mom road in the trunk) What ever happen to child lock on vehicles? The kids wouldn't have even got out of the vehicle unless she opened it for them giving her time to get to the house. But of course, it didn't happen that way.

As if taking the lives of one person wasnt enough for this man, he had to take his little boys too? I could understand why he would take his own but to take the lives of two young children who havent experienced what life has to offer is just uncalled for. As a parent I would think that you would want everything and more for you children not to kill them because of your own problems.
