I read this book Cruel sacrifice as a teenager and I remember the nauseating feeling i felt when i finished it. I put the book far away n a box. It haunted me still. When i was about 20 I read it again to gain a new aspect on the crime. I was still sickened but my nausea also came when reading Melindas story. Now dont misconstrue my feelings, I believe these girls are evil but I believe the parents that created and leftvyhem unprotected from the harm they suffered as children shouldve been punished as well. I am now a 33 year old mother of a 13 year old bisexually curious young lady. When she "came out" to me this book agaon begun to haunt me. Which is why im here now. LISTEN carefully to teens n children. What they plan n s fit of rage or anger is usually followed up on.

Some of you people are disgusting. These women are MURDERERS. It doesn't matter how old they were or how horrible the victim was perceived to be. They took a human life and in a cruel, disgusting and horrible way. There aren't many people who can do that. They KILLED someone and should serve every last second of their sentence.

This link is the program Melinda is involved with, and Shanda's mother is in support of it. I would encourage everyone to watch it.

You are a horrible horrible person, I hope you know that. I am lost for words, I can't believe what I just read, people like you make me sick.

Hello Dee. I totally agree. I not only think they should serve every bit of their prison sentence but put them all in a womens chain gang. Put them all in a womens chain gang were they have to work from sunup to sundown everyday, and they are also required to have Shanda's photos on the wall in their cell 24/7 to keep haunting them.I have no sympathy for them at all. None.

You are a pathetic excuse for a human being. Comments such as this are the reason I shit on your religion. Learn some compassion. Nothing 12 year old Shanda could have done justifies what happened to her. Her murderers belong in jail.

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, 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.

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.

Time: November 10, 2012 from 5:30pm to 10:30pm

The correctional facility here is the fourth prison to work with ICAN.
Irwin also said that ICAN partners with the Tony Stewart Foundation for financial support,

ICAN appears to support only religious Caucasian inmates and the beneficiaries of the dogs they train appear to be only Caucasian as well.
Sally Irvin is affiliated with an all white prison ministry called Kairos. Both Hope and Melinda are converted born again Christians while incarcerated.
Sally’s blog post with Hope Rippey (Anna R) as a follower. Anna is Hope’s middle name.

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 annd his bank stole the SS of senior citizens as to how he gained his wealth, they now eat cat food!

Renee you are a heartless bitch, regardless of her behaviour she did not deserve to suffer in that manner for as long as she did. No one deseves that except perhaps her killers. May you rot in hell!
#319 Apr 16, 2013
Like I have said before Melinda loveless can be released from prison when Shanda rises up from her grave and releases her....
#320 Apr 17, 2013
Do I think that Melinda is remorseful ? Maybe so. Do I think she deserves to be fee ? No. They all claimed they didn't want to kill her and started pointing fingers on who did what. Bottom line is not one of them did anything to stop it from happening. I read the book " cruel sacrifice " and I have never cried reading a book till now.

When these now women committed these crimes they were still young girls when they committed these crimes. They were absolutely horrible, and cruel. You have to remember they will also have to function in society with a reputation and people knowing what they did. If she got out it probably wouldn't be long before she would want to go back, because I doubt life on the outside would be pleasant.
#322 May 8, 2013
A child was tortured and murdered. The convicted got what they deserved. I only wish it was more. What would you do if the child was yours?
#323 May 8, 2013
Renee you are inhuman and disgusting!
I went to school with Laurie, Toni, and Hope and would never imagine them doing this. BUT THEY DID and now 2 are walking as free as the birds! I have not, will not, and never will speak to none of them again! "Oh pitty me and I am rehabilitated and set me free!" BULLSNAP!! I know if it was my kid, there would not have been tax payers money spent on 4 worthless people, but just 1 revengeful mother! I see Toni often (can't believe she came back to town after her release!) But I can't even look at her!! They all make me sick and they have yet paid the price! They should be charged with the death of Shandas father too!!!

So sad....People have to use Steve Sharer's name to further their own stuff, or to get attention.
Steve Sharer is dead, and hopefully with his daughter.
What kind of animal would use HIS name to post on topix?
Maybe you think you are in the right, but to use his name....absolutely disgusting.

The only innocent one, in this horrific murder, is the victim. Every one of those heartless demons will burn, in their afterlife.
#326 Jun 28, 2013
those girls, every single one of them, deserve to rot in hell for eternity
