Just because the judge's opinion was that Steve was "feigning" mental illness doesn't mean it was true! Steve wrote letters to pass the endless hours in jail. I've known these people since 1991. The mentally ill one is the wife, Penny. I am so afraid of her going postal one day,(she works for the postal service) and doing something more awful than she's ever done.

I'd probably be mentally ill and likely to go postal too if I was married to a man who thought it was a good decision, regardless of the reason; to pour gasoline on me and set me on fire.

To Imao, "Looking out for my friend" is as crazy as Penny. She also needs a grammar and spelling lesson. She has succeeded in slandering me on the internet, though, which is quite an accomplishment for a person who can't spell. I don't know where LOFMF gets his/her info. To Steven, I regret posting my original comment and defending your dad. He's our friend, that's all.

To Steven, Your Dad has been our friend for years and nothing will change because of this mess. I will continue to write letters to him. It is all he has. He talks to K on the phone and writes letters to me. I know the whole story Steven. He wrote it down in 39 pages. The things that the awful person wrote about me are lies. I am sorry for you and your brother and sister.

I know this entire family; they don't live very far from me. They are all worthless trailer trash, pure and simple. I went to school with the children and they were just as dumb as their parents. People like this should be sterilized. They give the South a bad name. Put down the meth pipe and read a book; you might actually learn something.

First off- "looking Out for My Firend" is probably Mom!
I have heard these exact words come out of her mouth, while talking about Tammy-- My entire life!
To Tammy, I agree with You about My Dad, it is very heartbreaking to see him still sitting behind bars, and missing out on my childrens lives.
To all the people that do not know us what the fuck are you sticking your nose in it for?!
To Mick Carmack- no one seems to know who the hell You are, but If I find out who you are, I will beat your ass.
To EVERYONE__ Like Stevie says it has been 2 damn years- Get on with your damn lives!!!!

That gal in TN got 271 days for murdering her husband by shooting him in the back while he slept. Why'd this guy get 30?

That's what I don't understand?! My Father has never- ever hurt anyone in his life until this day... she was burnt 15% of her body at First and Second degree burns- He was burnt 50 % of his body at third degree!
If this would have been Her lighting him on fire, She would have gotten a slap on the wrist and be right back out on the streets again!
