No, I never said it was okay that Michele was murdered. I just get tired of reading comments about what a kind, loving woman she was and that the crime was committed over a simply custody dispute. I didn't say it was right, I simply made the point that placed in the same situation it would be very difficult not to try to intervene for the child. Personally, I cheered at the end of "The Burning Bed".
How about the sicko Michael Devlin they recently caught who had abducted, abused, and terrorized Ben Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck? Ever cross your mind just what you thought he deserved? Let's just say you were friends of those boys' parents, you knew about the abduction and abuse, but when the authorities were notified and witnessed the horror, they did nothing to stop it. Let's go so far as to say they allowed Michael Devlin to re-abduct them and return them to his lair! That's basically what Tulsa DHS did for Michele's child. Does Devlin deserve death? I imagine there are friends and family of those boys who think so. It wouldn't make it right, but it would certainly be understandable how someone might decide to take matters into their own hands if he were released to commit further heinous acts on young boys.
Michele's child, who is now nearly 30 years old, wrote a letter to the pardon and parole board supporting Stohler's release. He feels Stohler has served enough time for his role in his mother's death. He has even visited Stohler in prison and thanked him for saving his life. He spent the vast majority of his young life in therapy trying to deal with what his mother did.
Why do you feel Stohler, the only one who confessed and was convicted, should be left to rot in prison? Is that really fair either? Why should he be given a worse sentence or serve more time simply because the DA couldn't get any other convictions? Why should he been given a sentence to pay for others? If he would be granted parole if the actual murderer were in prison why shouldn't he get it just because the system failed to convict everyone involved?
I am personally scared of a justice system that would operate under those guidelines.

As I have read and documated for a project, this mother never served one night in jail for ever abusing anyone! i think she was just a thorn in someones side ,i think maybe because she filed a paternity suit. I'm sorry but,accurate is not so accurate!

Michelle powers was a friend of mine. She is one of the sweetest person I have ever met. I thought all these years that he got away with it. Thank God he did not. If anyone knows her twin. I hope she's doing well. I am so glad that bastard didn't get away with it.
