Police buy cemetery plots to block Josh Powell from being buried next to his boys

By msnbc.com staff and news services
A sheriff and his sergeant in Washington state have bought burial plots next to Josh Powell's boys in order to block family members from burying him next to them, according to a media report Wednesday.
"The bottom line is, Josh Powell will not be near those two boys," Pierce County Sheriff's Sgt. Ed Troyer said in an interview with a Seattle-area radio program called the Ron and Don Show.
Josh Powell's surviving relatives wanted him to buried at the same cemetery as the two sons he killed, the city manager in Puyallup said earlier Wednesday.
But that does not look like it is going to happen.
Troyer and Sheriff Paul Pastor used their personal money and funds from Crimestoppers Tacoma-Pierce County to buy plots that are on either side of the boys, according to a report on the radio station's website that was confirmed by Troyer on Twitter:
twitter.com

Crimestoppers is soliciting money on its website for the purchase of the plots.
"It's disgusting that a murder suspect would be buried next to his victims," Pastor said in a statement posted on Twitter.
Powell's relatives visited the public Woodbine Cemetery and selected a plot about 25 feet from the boys, City Manager Ralph Dannenberg told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday. They haven't paid for it yet, and any sale is being put on hold because the parents of Powell's missing wife have promised legal action.
"We don't have any rules or procedures regarding refusing plots to anyone," Dannenberg said. "We're going to wait to see what the outcome is in court."
Powell was a suspect in Susan Powell's 2009 disappearance from their home in West Valley City, Utah. He later moved with his sons to near Tacoma, Wash., to be close to his parents. On Feb. 5, he attacked his sons with a hatchet and set his rental house on fire, killing himself and his sons, Charlie, 7, and Braden, 5.

The boys were laid to rest at Woodbine on Saturday. Attorney Anne Bremner, who represents Susan Powell's parents, Charles and Judy Cox, says she would seek a temporary restraining order to block Josh Powell from being buried there.
"For him to be buried near those kids is just unthinkable," Bremner said. "For God's sake, for them to lose Susan first, and then the boys, and now this? Just give these people a break."
Powell's sister Alina did not return an email from the AP seeking comment.
Meanwhile, Powell's father, Steve Powell, who is awaiting trial in Pierce County, Wash., on voyeurism and child pornography charges, filed a motion with the court saying he does not wish to speak to the FBI or other law enforcement about his son’s case or the disappearance of his daughter-in-law.
Mark T. Quigley, Steve Powell’s attorney, told the Salt Lake City Tribune that the notice, filed Tuesday, was common in criminal trials to protect rights against self-incrimination. It was prompted by a visit last week in which Steve Powell reportedly rebuffed FBI agents.
"It’s simply a statement to law enforcement that says my client doesn’t want to talk," Quigley told the paper. "That’s [Steve Powell’s] right. I don’t think belligerent has anything to do with it."

What a great use of funds...
Looks like someone didn't read the article...

The crimstoppers money is donation based so it has nothing to do with the tax payers.

Money that was donated to prevent crime and pay for tips to solve crimes. Had they used money that had been donated to the petty grievances and revenge fund, it'd be appropriate.

Oh, and I love how it says personal money and Crimestoppers money. Bubba put up 1$, Crimestoppers came the rest of the $9,999 I'm sure.

Seriously? You have a problem with this? The guy murdered his wife and butchered his kids with an axe before blowing himself up.

And the police, who are supposed to be indifferent law enforcement professionals, are being praised for misappropriating funds to benefit their personal feelings. How do you not have a problem with it? They're not even affecting anyone in any way, they're spending real money to fuck with a person's afterlife or whatever? And you think this is a good thing?

Fucking ponderous.

VT is a cop hating tool, but in this instance he's right. This is a meaningless waste of money, no matter whose money it is. There had to have been some better use of this money, even if you're going to go to Starbucks and buy a Mocha Latte. At least you'll get a few minutes of warm refreshment on a cold winter day, or create a scholarship in the kids name, or...something. That guy who killed his kids - He's dead, so you're not offending him. Those kids that he killed, they're dead, so it's kind of too late to protect them.

They do other things here's an example..
Music in the Schools Program

In 2011, Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County will be working with schools in Pierce County to provide musical instruments to underprivileged students. Our goal is to provide these students with access to school music programs to keep them involved in activities and off the streets of our community.
I chose this one because it made me laugh
keep them involved in activities and off the streets of our community.
Good for the kids or good for the people living around them?:icon_lol:
"Fucking kids.. can't we get them to play some instruments or something?"

They're a non profit charity that works on donations. Their money and the board can agree to spend it in any way they see fit I guess. They took away from this man what some people consider to be a privilege, which is to be buried with or near loved ones. It's not like they revoked or changed any arrangements he had. And it seems they are just helping the family of the victims..
Powell's relatives visited the public Woodbine Cemetery and selected a plot about 25 feet from the boys, City Manager Ralph Dannenberg told The Associated Press earlier Wednesday.

"We don't have any rules or procedures regarding refusing plots to anyone," Dannenberg said. "We're going to wait to see what the outcome is in court."
It's a bit different if it's being done to help the victims family rather than their own mission just to fuck this guy.

Good use of money, from my point of view. People would have gone apeshit around here if he was allowed to be buried next to those kids. Call it crime prevention. This story has been a powder keg in these parts for two years.

Ok. Lemme give some of you people a heads up. Groups like Crimestoppers, MADD, Rotary, Boy Scouts of America local, Elks, Surfers for Jesus, Jews for Jesus, ....well you get the point..they raise and give money every once in awhile to Police, Fire, and EMS. Sometimes it comes with a spending caveat, IE: new gear, training, repairs, and etc. Sometimes it comes with no restrictions other than it needs to be spent before year's end or they have to give it back. Sometimes the groups ACTUALLY are acting in conjunction with say, a police force to stop having a scumbag buried next to the kids he killed.

VT seems to forget that just because the lots were purchased to keep the dead father as far from the kids as possible, it doesn't mean they won't be resold after they plant that murdering fuck someplace else.

VT, you hit tool status on this one. Behave!

Yup, because only a complete tool would hold cops responsible for misappropriating funds. I guess I should be more of cop cock sucker like you guys.

No, because only a complete tool would jump to a conclusion before the facts are out. I don't know the particulars of where or what the money from Crimestoppers was earmarked for or how it was obtained. I abhor misuse of funds. But I don't look like an ass jumping to conclusions before whe know all the facts now, do I?

The facts are they are not cops.. they work with police agencies not for them. Their money their choice. In this case they are trying to help the victim. Is that such a bad thing?

Did you read the article?

It implied that there was a specific fund set up on the crimestoppers website to ask for donations FOR THIS PURPOSE.

that and the cops used their own PERSONAL money.


Fuck all of you assholes who think this was a waste of money, and fuck the scumbag family for even wanting to bury him next to them in the first place.


and another FUCK because it is a cool word.

Right below the twitter picture...

But I'm a tool when I want to wait for all the facts to come out on a police shooting instead of just assuming the guys with the badges were heroes?

At least you economy drags are inconsistent...

Agreed, but only because they used crimestoppers money to do it. If the cops had said "We want to buy the cemetery plots next to the kids, here's how to donate to the cause" and used THAT money, I wouldn't have a problem with it. Using crimestoppers donations isn't cool, though.

Except the crimestoppers donations were made to buy the plots....

If you follow the crimestoppers link....its direct to a 'buy the plot' fund donation button. So anyone donating knows and approves of where this money is going. Its not from the general crimestoppers pool. Its not a misappropriation of funds. They are being used exactly for what they were donated for. Non-issue. Fuck that scumbag.
