This is the most unreal story I had ever read in my life.The Mel bray I know
and grew up with would'nt go into a Bawdy house, so why in the world would he
own one. He was raised up by a VERY Religious mother,without a father, so he
had some much respect for his mother and all women. This have to be a set-up,
someone with a lot of hate in their heart probably, told him this was a great
deal to get into.Mel Bray is a very good man,and he will be found innocense
of all charges. May GOD bless you MEL,MAMA'S prayers will prove them wrong.

Do I believe the "naive" part? Not in the least. Do I believe that it was a setup? Absolutely...to echo the above comments, that is not the Mel I knew and that I spent considerable time with. I found him to be a family man, caring, compassionate, and with the utmost respect for others, especially women. Trust me, if my wife thought he was on the up and up, then he was. The rest can't be said for one of his kids, but Mel became an unknowing enemy of the PWC government with the whole Mayor/Sheriff debacle. Mel, you should have seen it coming; just sorry you didn't.
