In light of the HORRIFIC and VIOLENT murders of Charlie (age 7) and Braden (age 5) Powell in Western Washington, it has become apparent that the antiquated theory that the best place for a child is with his/her/their biological parents is fundamentally inaccurate and putting children's lives in harms way.

The state needs to take drastic measures in cases where parents are known or suspected of participating, executing, or hiding information in regards to violent crime or sexual criminal cases.

The community is not only shaken by this tragedy but we are now damaged permanently, we will never get to experience any of the gifts, talents, skills or education that these two fine young boys might have brought our community we are left with literal ashes, ashes from a home they shouldn't have been left in, ashes of a memory from loved ones, and ashes of what is left of the dilapidated and dysfunctional court system and the horribly disconnected DSHS here in Washington state.

Help save other children from the horrors these two innocent children suffered at the hands of their sick father, and help save others from the misguided and poorly planned efforts of DSHS and their outdated policies.

WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE.............AND WHAT WE WANT NOW ! ! !
A) In any open case of violent crimes, sexual abuse, child pornography that any minor children be removed from the home and put into protective custody with the state until the case is close with no visitation to parents involved of the crime or case as either a person of interest or a suspect.

B) That any "supervised visitations" ordered by either DSHS or the Washington State Courts be conducted as follows:
a) With a law-enforcement officer be present, or in cases where law enforcement is not available TWO DSHS/CPS representatives be present
b) that ALL supervised visits be conducted in a public facility or a state run facility
