Accident does that word ever come in to your vocabulary? People just need to leave this alone. This is a tragedy for everyone involoved. They are all hurting over this situation, you and everyone that think you know what happened or want to know what happened.....should just drop it. God knows what happened that night and only He is allowed to sit and judge us!

Mike is not married to Melody, Melody is still with Jay. No I'm not defending pee wee herman, I actually can't stand the little sawed off arrogant pompous sob, but I can tell you this he is not married to the lady that was driving the car. Wait, was she even really the driver? So much about the case & scene & the way it was handled do not make sense. I guess Jackie is the only one who will ever know. Sad thing is a son lost his mother & Jackie was a good person. Mike used to be but I guess that title, badge & pistol went to his tiny frame. Just remember people that do bad things, wrong things, unlawful things... Always will pay for it one way or another, karma is a bitch, sometimes I don't feel like she comes around quick enough but you know maybe she just shows up at the right time every time. Has anyone seen him lately? I have and i think the reason he has gotten so skinny is all that wrongdoing is bothering him bad. I have heard other reasons as to why his weight loss has been so rapid & he never gained it back but i won't mention that here, he may send his goons after me lol. My granddad told me every dog has its day, & that can be taken for the good & the bad. But anyway mike did not marry melody he is married to another lady whose name I won't mention. They no longer live in ripley. Back to the subject though about Mary Winkler, Steve Farese & Leslie Ballin did clean his clock on that case & he is still pissed from it. He should have stayed a defense attorney he was a much better guy back then. Now he thinks he is deputy dog. Mike is mot any better than anyone else, I know things the people that work for him have done as I'm sure he does also. Wonder why they are above the law? Hmmmm I just wonder.

The Rock is still P.O.'ed that he didn't seek the death penalty on the 2 mexican boys that killed that state trooper in Tipton county. Bad move. Really bad move.

And like I said all you know is what the news has said. You don't know the facts so why don't you find them out and then say something. There are a lot of things the news didn't say that I'm not going to say on here because quite frankly I don't think it is anyone's business.

U best hope we don't find out about them!!!! We definitely gonna talk about it!!!
Well

If they are FACTS they will come out when she is tried & then everyone will know anyway. Crimes of this nature cannot be hidden in secrecy if there are other facts they will come out in court & that's public.

Yea, and I think since it's all public information , I'm going to court with her and then I'm going to report it all here on topix!
I don't understand why y'all can't except that she's a killer. It don't matter what else happened, that we don't know, bottom line is she shot him in the back while he was sleeping.
Premeditated Murder.

You seem like you hate this woman, why is this your business to make sure everyone knows what you think who are you to judge her or think you know what happened? God will judge her the rest of us should leave this alone. Who are you that you have so much insight on this case?

On my earlier post I already said that liked her, said she was a super nice lady, and can't dream of her doing this.
But y'all dog other ppl out on here for the same stuff( murder). But yet y'all act like mrs Donna did nothing wrong!

Noone ever said she wasn't wrong for what she did. I believe everyone should pay for their crime and I'm sure she will. I just don't believe it is right for everyone to cast their judgement before she has gone before the court and all the evidence has been made public. That's all I'm saying. I understand everyone is entitled to their opinion but you don't have to be so immature about it. I would just about put money on it that over half of the people that have been on this topic and previous ones that have been removed don't even know Donna. When I say know her I don't mean you saw her at Walmart that one time but actually know her.

Figures the sorry sacks of shit in Ripley are on here running their mouths. You all don't know any details other then what the news has told you and what bullshit has been pulled out on your asses. While you're on here, a publicly seen forum, running your mouths about a situation you know nothing about, did it ever cross your mind that the families are reading this. You are all disrespectful little shits, but I'm not surprised you are from Lauderdale Co. What I don't understand is why you're all fixated on her, a white woman makes the news with a story like this its all your tiny brains can think about, and talk about, but a thug with his pants around his knees shoots someone, never fear its no biggie its whatever and you blow it off, and why because he or she is black. Yeah I'm not racist but its the truth and anyone that reads this with the slightest IQ would agree. So you disrespectful low life's leave Donna's name off topixs, if you feel that your life is so sad and boring and that need to talk about what you THINK happened because your tired unused brains can't produce a conversation that has to do with your own pitiful little life, then talk about it in the privacy of your own home, at least no one can hear how ignorant you are there, and its more respectful to the families.

Look it is sad at what has happened.Sometimes things happen that is unexplainable.But I can tell you this much Donna Neal is a very good person, a good wife and a very good mother.Talk about shock I was shocked at this news.More so she loved her husband so much that you know her heart has to be broke and hard on her she was married for years to this man and was so happy oh I am sure they had their bumps and humps like every one has. Yes I hate what has happened and wish It would all go away and had never happened. Donna's Children are very well mannered citizens and deserve the best for the family. Trashing her out on here is not going to help a thing she will either be set free or go to prison one or the other and its nothing anyone of us can say or do to change it. Just thinking about her being in prison is scary she is not that type of lady. I can say this much all we can do is ask God to lead all this in the right path and do what he thinks is right he knows what happened not any of us so God please lay your hand on this and do what is right for the neal family. Donna is a sweet loving kind of lady not a murder and something has happened and now its all in GODS hands not the topix public or the gossipers of lauderdale co.
just another citizen
