PUYALLUP, Wash. – A 911 recording reveals a social worker’s attempts in a more than six-minute phone call to get a dispatcher to send authorities quickly to the home of Josh Powell after he locked himself and his two sons in the home he then set ablaze.

Social worker Elizabeth Griffin-Hall brought the Powell boys, Charlie, 5, and Braden, 7, for their court-ordered visit with their father on Sunday. When she arrived, Josh Powell took the children and shut the door in her face, so she called 911.

In the first minutes of the 911 call, Griffin-Hall laid out the situation briefly, then asked, “What should I do? Nothing like this has ever happened before at one of these visitations. I’m really shocked, I can hear one of the kids crying,” Griffin-Hall said. “This is the craziest thing, he looked right at me and closed the door.”

The dispatcher at one point asked her what address she was at. Griffin-Hall, who was calling from inside her car, spent about a minute and a half looking for the address, asking at one point, “You can’t find me by GPS?” While still looking for the address she said, “I think I need help right away.”

    THOSE WHITE  KIDS TOLD EVERYONE THAT THEIR WHITE MOTHER WAS IN THE CAR TRUNK. BUT THE WHITE POLICE STATION AND THE WHITE JUDGES DIDN’T LISTEN.
     NO ONE PUT THIS DEMON, EVIL WHITE MAN IN JAIL.
    WHY? BECAUSE THEY NEEDED THE JAIL SPACE FOR SOME BLACK KID THAT’S  STANDING ON A STREET CORNER MINDING HIS BUSINESS,
    ” BECAUSE GET UP AGAINST THE WALL, YOU FIT DESCRIPTION BLACK MAN,” IS MORE IMPORTANT TO THE SURVIVAL OF WHITE AMERICA THEN THE LIVES OF TWO SMALL WHITE CHILDREN.
     IF AMERICA PUT EVERY WHITE CRIMINAL IN JAIL THAT GETS AWAY WITH CRIME BECAUSE THEIR SKIN IS WHITE, THERE WOULD BE ALL WHITE NEIGHBORS HOODS WITH NO  WHITE MEN IN THOSE NEIGHBORHOODS ACROSS AMERICA.
     THE WHITE MAN CAN NOT GO TO JAIL AT THE SAME RATE AS THE BLACK MAN BECAUSE THE WHITE BIRTH RATE IS VERY…… LOW AND WHITE AMERICA NEED EVERY WHITE MAN’S( REALLY A FOOT SOLDIER FOR WHITE SUPREMACY) FOOT ON THE GROUND IN ORDER TO RULE OVER ALL BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA.
     AND IT WORKS.
     THE PRISON SYSTEM IS RAN BY DR. WACKENHUT AND WHITE, BLACK AND LATINO CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS.
    AND JUST AS DURING HITLER’S TIME, IF YOU ASK THOSE BLACK CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS “WHY ARE YOU HELPING THESE WHITE PEOPLE TO INCARCERATE OTHER BLACK PEOPLE?” THE BLACK CORRECTIONAL OFFICER WILL TELL YOU “IT’S MY JOB”. WELL, THAT’S WHAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE HEARD DURING NAZI GERMANY.
    IT’S MY JOB.
    HERE’S THE MAGICAL PART: “WHITE AMERICA IS HATEFUL TO AND BRUTAL WITH HER BLACK SLAVES THAT SENT BLACK MEN FROM THEIR COMMUNITIES TO FIGHT IN EVERY AMERICAN WAR IN HONOR OF WHITE AMERICA AND WHEN YOU CAME HOME FROM HIS WAR, THE WHITE MAN KICKED YOU IN YOUR ASS AND TOLD YOUR BLACK MAMA TO GET TO THE BACK OF THE BUS.”
    QUESTION: IF THE PILOTS IN THE MOVIE ‘RED TAILS’ WERE SO FIERCE, WHY DIDN’T THEY TURN THOSE PLANES AROUND AND COME BACK AND BOMB THE KKK?
    IF EVERY BLACK PILOT HAD DIED IN THAT EFFORT, THEN WE COULD PIN THE WORD “HERO” ON THEM.
    YOU ARE A HERO WHEN YOU FIGHT AND DIE TO FREE BLACK PEOPLE ON AMERICAN SOIL.
     NAT TURNER WAS A HERO, MALCOLM X WAS A HERO, MLK WAS A HERO , HARRIET TUBMAN WAS A HERO.
