The most selfish man alive…

who is he? Josh Powell. Casey, how do you know that this man is so selfish? Despite the fact that I am always quick to judge,  I have highly legitimate reason for believing that Josh is the most selfish man alive. Many of us have heard about a recent home explosion that killed a man and his two sons. Well this was the doing of Joshua Powell. How is this a selfish action? Well it was the motives.

Joshua had been in a recent custody battle with his parents in law. The wife wasn’t involved because she disappeared in 2009 while Josh and his boys went on a camping trip. I’m pretty sure Josh killed her and burned her in a ditch somewhere, but who am I to guess…Anyway, his parents had gained TEMPORARY custody of the two boys ages 5 and 7. His parents filed for custody in the first place because Josh’s father, Steven, had been doing all of this disgusting crap like videotaping women in the neighborhood while they were changing in their bathrooms and child porn and…ugh…

Joshua sent emails to some friends (hehe…”friends”) saying that he couldn’t live without his sons. Meanwhile, Susan’s (his wife) parents took in the boys and built them a bedroom and got everything ready. Josh, then, gave all of their toys to goodwill…

kind of eerie to find out that the toys you just bought for your kid were taken to the goodwill by a psychopathic killer...

Then he bought several gallons of gasoline. A couple days later, a social worker arrived at his home with his two boys. The excited, yet oblivious boys excitedly ran ahead of the social worker and into the house.

The much less excited social worker took her sweet time getting to the door. When she got there, it was closed and locked. She stood there, yelling and banging on the door for quite a while…in a few minutes, she began smelling gas. She got into her car just in time for the house to catch fire. She had called 911, but they didn’t treat her situation like an emergency. She was trying her hardest to convey the urgency of the situation (I listened to the call myself), but they operator would say something like “well, we have to take possibly life threatening situations first.”

911: "uh...we're really busy right now, we're gonna need you to call us back when he actually gets the balls to pull the trigger..."

I’m not sure what anarchist action movie planet that 911 operator was trained in where gasoline smell in a house is not a problem, but I bet she feels like crap wherever she is…

All fingerpointing aside and needless to say, the police/fire department didn’t make it in time. Upon further investigation after the explosion, it was discovered that Powell had chopped up the kids with an axe…can we say overkill?

All because he couldn’t have custody of his kids…so if he can’t have them, no one can…or because the kids finally got to the age where they began remembering more details from that “camping trip” after which their mother disappeared and were more likely to share their memories…

Well thanks to Josh, they wont have any memories and they won’t be able to make any more…The best thing that came out of this situation…he died. But as always, there’s a piece of me that wishes he could have made it out with maybe just a severed arm, punctured lungs, and half his face blown off (of course the boys being alive would have been the ultimate wish to grant…). I know it sounds weird. Why am I on his side? I’m not. I want this guy to suffer…just blown up in an instant – easy way out. That’s not fair if you ask me…but I guess that’s what hell is for, right…
