That was the saddest thing I have ever heard about. She was such a beautiful little girl, and her death was so uncalled for. I hope they keep those girls in prison forever--I know 2 got out, but I am talking about the other two. RIP, Shanda!

So tragic, beautiful girl. I cannot even begin to imagine the pain those who knew and loved her experienced. One of the most shocking stories I've heard out of New Albany. :(

I agree with you. That Melinda is trying to get out or prison early. I sure hope she doesn't EVER get out or Tackett either. They should of had the Death Penalty.

I know 2 are out, but I think the other two are both still in there. Melinda Loveless has been trying to get out for some time now, but I don't think the Tackett girl has ever tried to get out at all. Let's hope they both stay in there. It would be awful for Shanda's family if those 2 got out.

That would be Toni that was in Madison back then. How do you know it was one of the girls?
Did someone point her out to you?

The grounds of the Hope Rippey and Amanda/Shanda thread being deleted is because there was much confirmation to the corruption involved with the early release of Hope, and the attempt of Melinda posted there.
Hope has written that she is a devotee of Melinda and the particulars show that as much as Laurie that night, she wished to impress Melinda also, and Shanda had to die to accomplish this.
Hope’s x-girlfriend had posted that Hope was a child molester. Was this the words of a jilted lover or the outcome of bed talk of Hope’s confession that it was her that sodomized Shanda on Lemon Road? We know that Hope was malicious enough to spray Windex into Shanda’s lesions as she lay hemorrhaging in the trunk of Laurie’s car while pleading for her life, and weeping for her Mommy. What we also know from Hope’s classmates is that she was a bully before this crime and was always starting trouble with others on the school bus, picking on other girls. This preceding behavior is a true sign that Hope is a sociopath personality that any profiler will tell us, does not modify.

The people involved with Hope’s release, and the challenge of Melinda for freedom have committed the real crime here. The Martha Adams story about Martha leaving capital to Hope for legal representative is bull, as well as the clandestine admirer paying for Melinda’s attorney, who just happens to be the same attorney. Search the Marion County “Front Porch Program” that inters the prisons to teach religion, the “Reentry Program”, where Hope has stated she has contacts, which includes Sleepy Hollow, the “Marion County Sheriff’s Dept” that controls the violent offenders registry, and the “Marion Country IT Dept.” that has the capabilities to have threads removed and stalk anyone who questions Hopes release. And you will find the name “Adams’ prominently associated with all.
So what money is really backing all this, including the Internet stalking? Taxpayer money!

To you religious folks you must understand these people are not like you, they are power hungry psychopathic hypocrites who have benefited financially from the release of Hope Rippey, and why they also want Melinda unconfined. Simply because they are high-profile criminals and will increase funding to their government programs that they pay themselves rather well from. They are your “Sugar on Sunday” Christians that break the law the rest of the week, for their own personal gain. Do not stand with them because of their religious rhetoric; much like the Catholics who let the pedophiles infiltrate their religion, they are just as corrupt and selfish.

Demand a federal investigation into the funding and circumstances of Hope’s release.
Demand a federal investigation into the funding of Melinda’s attempt.

Know this!“Mariolatry” is a spy and paid well from taxpayer funds to stalk, harass, slander and threaten all who question the political corruption involved with the release of the sociopath, Hope Rippey. She/it goes by many names from many locations with software that changes the IP address.

Your tax dollars at work to protect their crimes against humanity!

Loveless and Tackett should never see the light of day in the free world ever again. Hope should be sitting there with them. seeing as she was the lure. I want Toni to keep one thing in mind...HER little girl. How would she feel if that were to happen to her daughter? I hope Shanda haunts them everynight for the rest of their lives.....the true justice to be served. Keep looking over your shoulders girls....she is watching you. They took a life and shattered others...may no mercy be shown...ever.

I don't think any of the murders should of gotten
out .

but sence they have
I hope the rest of their lifes
are nothing but a life of burning hell , of
sleepless days and nights.

They will meet a judge in the end of their lifes
that will not excuse them of murder.

They should all receive the same horrible acts that they bestowed upon Shanda. Sure would save the taxpayers money.. Hope they see her face all the time, I hope they are haunted by the memory of her and have nightmares. I hope the other two girls rot in that jail cell. It may not be christian like to have this opinion however I cant imagine what if this would have been my child. My heart goes out to Shandas family.

I wish nothing but peace and forgiveness upon those who truly seek and ask for it.

For those who seek hatred and retribution, I give my sympathy.

Peace and forgiveness for those that are truly sorry and have learned from their mistakes, yes, but what of those that show no remorse? What of those who do not accept their punishment? Do they deserve forgiveness? They've learned nothing. I believe that forgiveness should be earned and not given freely to those who do not deserve.
I watched the Dr Phil show with Rippey. Her tears did not convince. She repeatedly stated she 'did not know' and 'had no answer' and her responses were often bizarre and deluded. Is she sorry? Is she truly sorry? And, what of Loveless, the catalyst, who has tried to escape punishment for years. Does she not think she deserves those years?
Of all of them, the only one who is behaving appropriately is perhaps the most vicious yet, ironically, is the one who seems to have learned something; who is taking her punishment as she deserves it.

And if they do get out i hope the judge that lets them out feels the pain of Shanda and her family!! And i hope these girls gets spit on by every person they see in the commutity!!But in hell they say the burning is not what hurts the most it watching every1 u ever care about and loved being hurt over and over again thats all u see theres not one glimps of good or happiness!! So in the end Shanda really won the fight and they thought they was cool and tuff and now their sry that they got caught!! Would they have been sry if they didnt get caught?? Is the real question they bragged and awlful much the night that the horror took place!! They took a Inocett childs life dont give them the oppertunity to ever have a life outside of bars at less!!U can change the way u live but u cant change who u are and they are sick girls that need help of locked up for life of pain just like what they did to Shanda Sharers family!!Live in the pain of her family knowing the pain that baby girl went thru when she died!!

Them girls can seek forgiveness while serving life in prison with Shanda Sharers picture painted on the wall and god can do the judging when its time!! But they dont deserve to have any life outside of them walls let evil live in hell..Its humans like this is way people is just so evil they bring the evil out of good people is by hurting a innocet child theirs alot of people that would just love to let them feel the pain of what shanda did when they killed her bc of the hurt inside of such a horror of a true story..How would any of u that agree of releasement of any of them girls want them around at all to look in them girls eyes and see what they did everytime i see their faces i see that little girl suffering!!! Stand up for Shanda Sharer bc their was to many against her at the end of her life..Any1 that agrees to let them out picture ur daughter being Shanda that night then rule ur judgement!!

Personally I think someone should do the same thing to the four girls that they did to Shanda!!! An eye for an eye right??!!

They don't deserve to live with shelter or tv or food. I think the pieces of trash, INCLUDING the two that got released AND Amanda should have to pay more than what they did. And why didnt Amanda get anything!!!

Just not fair!!!! Such a beautiful young girl!!
