Did that poor girl get another chance at Life? NO!!! Then this woman needs to stay the sentence...which I don't believe is harsh enough. Don't forget that the 12 yr old was alive 3 damn different times and she tried to kill her over and over...then burned her ALIVE!! Don't let that beast loose!

Why is NASCAR’s Tony Stewart’s foundation for disabled children supporting a prison program led by a convicted child killer?
ICAN is a prison dog-training program Stewart supports and high-profile child killer Melinda Loveless is an active dog trainer there. Melinda masterminded the 1992 kidnapping, 10 hr torture, and murder (burned alive) of 12-yr-old Shanda Sharer.
Fellow inmate and assisted murderer of Shanda, Hope Rippey was in the ICAN program and was released early under suspicious circumstances.
Search:“Hope Rippey”+”Early Release”

ICAN’s mission statement is,“To qualify for the program, offenders must have a background clear of violent behavior.”
So why is Melinda, and Hope before her in this program? Indiana prisons are overflowing with non-violent offenders, so better choices are available.

There is no way Tony does not know about Melinda and Hope with his active support and participation with this prison program.
Stewart should pull his support of ICAN until Melinda is removed from the ICAN program as their mission statement requires.

It appears there is another attempt to release Melinda with ICAN propaganda videos coming out of Charlotte NC where Tony’s racing team is located. One Charlie Petrizzo:
Search; “Charlie’s Scars”
An x-Wachovia banker and 1% GOPer, intimidated and threatened to sue Brenda Nyberg. Brenda created the petition to keep Melinda Loveless in prison and passed recently due to the added stress Charlie created. Brenda was a disabled grandmother caring for her special needs grandson. Stewarts bullying on the track is one thing, but associated with the bullying of a good person, disabled grandmother with special needs grandson, who recently passed is something Stewart should answer for. Is Stewart connected to Petrizzo? If Stewart used his NASCAR standings for political favors in Indiana and this ICAN program, NASCAR is just as responsible.
Petrizzo and his bank stole the SS of senior citizens as to how he gained his wealth, they now eat cat food!

ICAN appears to support only religious Caucasian inmates and the beneficiaries of the dogs they train appear to be only Caucasian as well. Odds are, most of the recipients of the prison trained dogs ($900) are affluent enough to pay for the dogs on the open market ($16,000) and this is another case of wealthy people taking advantage of prison slave labor.


Sally Irvin is affiliated with an all white prison ministry called Kairos. Both Hope and Melinda are converted born again Christians while incarcerated.

From what I've seen on Amanda heavrins twitter she's using this tragedy for fame. Even though she did not participate in the murder, I still believe she molested the 12 year old shanda. I dont care what she said On dr Phil, shanda was 12 if she was seeing older men she was manipulated, she's fucking 12 at that time. She'd listen to anyone of older aged authority.

Melinda is not a monster. She was just a kid herself. Do you realize what kind of life she had? What kind of childhood she had? If it weren't for Larry Loveless, Melinda would be a lot better off in life.
She shouldn't be in prison, she should be evaluated in an institution.If you want people to not act like animals, the last thing you should do is lock them up in a cage. Melinda needs help. I hope and pray she has had gotten some sort of mental help while locked up.
You are right. Seen her childhood, Melinda had NO chance to develope like other kids and if it had been up to her alone Shanda would have received a beating but would not have died.

You and others who show this simpathy for a total murdering dirtbag like malinda loveless are scum as well. Do you actually know what those four pieces of trash did to Shanda? I bet you have done some terrible things yourself, right, otherwise you couldn't feel anything but contempt for those four.

I don't feel attacked in any way. I have strong feelings about children who commit crimes. Brains aren't even fully developed. Even if it went on for hours, these girls didn't put much thought into what they were doing. They did not and were not capable of making "grown up" decisions. Shandra did die a horrible death. Do I think because she did that Melinda should too? Absolutely not. I don't want to make it seem like Shandra's death is no big deal at all. It is, it was tragic--but I believe this whole case is tragic from every aspect. The answer to killing is not more killings. I couldn't say how I would feel if I was Shandra's mother. What I can say is I would not take the same approach as she does. That's not how I am. Although it would be difficult, I would choose to forgive Melinda. How else is she going to forget and live a normal life? You can't live your life hating someone for taking away a loved one. You can always remember, but forgiveness is important.
Laila. Girl.. I have been behind you all the way as far as your take on forgiveness and Melinda in general. But the girl's name was Shanda.

AAhh the topic continues. Hello laila.
Like I said,, i've been following this case since it happened,, I did time for avenging my niece.
People post that they want to see melinda Executed.
When I first started corresponding with Melinda all I saw was a physically attractive woman in prison who had been railroaded. She told me her side of the story,, I read the book and anything related to Shanda's murder.
I then had melinda's trial minutes mailed to me.
I asked her about the inconsistancies in her testimony on three way conversations via telephone.
I no longer give a crap about whether or not her lawyers left out valuable info. in her defense or whether or not the prosecution lied in SEVERAL occasions.
Melinda loveless is still SICK. And in my opinion,,still dangerous,,or not.
She talked about Shanda's spirit haunting her in cell, chanting her name,, asking her why she hurt her. She talked about Vampires in her cell at night. She talked about biting my neck and sucking my blood. She talked about demons in her cell pouring gas on her and smelling like gasoline when she woke up. This was not even a couple of years ago.
Granted,, she should die in prison.
Look up TOM LUTHER,,ARTHUR SHAWCROSS,and many more people released after 10,,15,,20 years only to kill again.
I stopped corresponding with Melinda when I realized that she was guilty as sin,,still talks of demons and vampires,,
But still,, doesn't deserve to have a crow bar shoved up her ass,, or tortured and burned alive.
The moment of truth for her is coming. Not at your hands or your time. When the man upstairs gets around to it.
What were the inconsistencies in her story? And how did you get court transcripts?

Of course the Bible says that. It also says turn the other cheek.
And if someone did that to one of my daughters I would be as animalistic to want the same in return for the perptrator. in this case another girl in the same age gruop. Cases vary!! If a man did that to my daughter id kill him myself.
People are so bent on wanting to inflict the punishment on Melinda themselves to vent!!!!
GOD will deal with her YEE OF LITTLE FAITH. WHO ARE YOU TO JUDGE!!!?
YOU DON'T SIN!? A SIN IS A SIN A SIN.
People quote the bible to justify the Crap that they want to do!!!!
Shanda can't turn the other cheek...she's dead.
