God Bless Jada, and may the lord have mercy on Joshua. This could have also been an accident. Wait till the courts hear the truth...

Innocent until???
...you are in an interrogation room for so many hours, your rights denied and violated you don't know up from down....
...then crackheads/vultures come to feed on the 15 minutes of 'fame' they can get from the news, but deny their responsibility in violating good samaritan laws, IF someone is truly in need and calling for help....
...as a lying, election-hungry pointer stirs public opinion and damages the 15 square mile jury pool he can have succumb under his undue influence so that he can step up and be the mighty catcher of all evil...
...while evil is laying right under his nose every day, but hiring more assistants and getting raises are so important that destroying several families will play into his getting his new swearing-in ceremony....
Yes, Concerned. Wait till the court hears the truth. A corrupt system of cronies sitting in wait to hear the truth. But WILL THEY LISTEN?
There is a strategy here, and we all need to stand in the gap for Amy and Joshua. Speak the anointed word of truth in your prayers for the families and the lawyers that will represent them.
DO NOT LET THE ENEMY WIN THIS ONE.

Who the hell are you to say wether or not he liked the child. I have two step children of my own and I love them very much. And how do you know he broke her arm and blackened her eye. Are you an investigator who is willing to make such accusations or were you there when it happened. And if you were there, why didn't YOU do anything to stop it. For that matter if you knew he blackened her eye and broke her arm and didn't do anything about it, then you are just as guilty...

What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. Or does that only apply to crimes that are fitting to society. Maybe some things are just Guilty until proven Innocent...

everyone is welcome to feel however they want on the situation, but no one at all is in any position to judge anyone else on the situation. Joshua is the one to be judged, so leave it that way. You cannot say who did and who did not do anything, and who did or did not try. I am sure there were many people who tried, but what people need to realize is that it is not that easy, and trying is not always enough, but that is all anyone could have done, was try. No body has said that having step children is wrong, and no body said that everyone who cares for kids that aren't theres don't love those kids just a smuch as thier own, caretaker was sayiing that this was how Joshua, and Joshua alone looked at the situation, she was not his, therefore he didn't want her. It's time for people to stop thinking about themselves, is everyone so concerned about themselves that they believe that everything said that they can partially relate to, is directly about them. That's how it seems. Josh will get what he deserves one way or another. Jada Nicole- You are forever and always loved and missed. You are a true angel.

Josh is not the monster people are trying to say he is. Look at the testimony of others, her own mother didn't feed Jada, her other child was taken from her,several people called Child Protective Services, why wasn't Jada taken away???? Josh is a human being, it was an accident,let it rest.
