AMANDA NEELEY started this petition to Parole Reform Supporters

Melissa Grasa was incarcerated in 1994 for killing her husband, Mike Grasa. After being a model inmate and working for YEARS to rehabilitate herself, and being denied parole and clemency multiple times, God has answered our prayers and she has been granted parole. But.... 

My dad's family (Mike Grasa's family) is trying to get it over turned. And they are going to great lengths to do it. Being incredibly vicious, spreading false information and using pictures and video of me and my siblings to gain sympathy and support. To be clear, we are and always have supported our mother and are very upset to be used in such a way. 

I am sure you can look online and find quite a few story's about this. But what the stories aren't telling you is the other side. Like the old saying goes, there are two sides to every story and then there is the truth. 

Maybe no one will know exactly what happened or the truth of the matter, but all I know is Mike's family's side is not the truth. They say she is a monster, cold blooded and unremorseful. That is NOT the Melissa I have always known. She is absolutely not a cold blooded killer in any means will never be a threat to society. 

They say Mike was an angel, a wonderful and loving man. That is NOT the Mike I remember as a child. He abused my mother for years. Controlled her every move. Had numerous affairs (I've met and spoken to one woman he had an affair with). And was a terrible alcoholic. 

Let me be clear on the fact I do not condone taking someone's life for any reason. But every situation is not black and white and she has served her time. She deserves to come home. 

Please help me show that we have just as many people supporting her as the people bashing her character. 

Our whole family thanks you all!
