Cheer up Charlie, you'll still get to play Santa in the prison Christmas pageant!

I almost wish they had let him go. I can easily see Charlie strolling down to the local Albertson's to get a job collecting the grocery carts, maybe volunteering as a crossing guard in the mornings.

Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme still thinks he's great, but all the other women know they are never getting out of prison and are remorseful.

Don't apologize to him, he needs to stay put and I think he knows it.

lurking...

waiting for the free manson grubs to slither out of the woodwork.

Fark Miss Charles, they should put him in general pop and see how long he lasts.
They haven't for just that reason, and it perpetuates his fanbase

Get one little swastika tattooed on your forehead and it haunts you for life.

Apparently, his lawyer is trying to get him moved to a mental hospital. 25 years too late, I'd say (he's crazy as a loon), but it makes no difference. He might as well stay in prison. The guy is 77 years old--it's not like anyone on the outside is going to take care of him when he gets out, and he for sure can't manage alone.

And if he was released, he wouldn't last a day before someone planted a bullet in his skull.
 
2012-04-11 03:47:51 PM  
Why is he even in prison after all these years? Not only did he not kill anybody, he wasn't even present when the murders took place. Some people convicted of actually murdering somebody spend less time behind bars.

Haha. He'd just form a Wal-Mart cult, get all stabby, and end up right back in prison
 
2012-04-11 03:50:22 PM  
But seriously, While I doubt that Manson at 77 could be much of a threat to society, he is institutionalized and probably could not function on the outside. Just move the old guy to prison rest home and forget about the paroles.
 
2012-04-11 03:51:31 PM  
Charles Manson doesn't even know his last name anymore.
 
2012-04-11 03:51:41 PM  
A guy behind me in line at the liquor store one day had a Manson-style forehead swastika, but, he had clearly not taken into account the effect of the mirror, so said swastika was backwards. I was going to point it out to him, but, y'know, I didn't want the guy to be *embarrassed*.
 
2012-04-11 03:51:45 PM  
Too bad. I was hoping Salon.com would give him a job.

While I agree that is is a bit of a farce that he is still in prison, you have to remember that under the joint responsibility rule of a conspiracy charge, all participants of a conspiracy are equally guilty of the action in which they participated. In this case, it was a mass murder, which Manson orchestrated, even though he wasn't present at the crime scene.

Conspiracy to commit (mass) murder is pretty goddamn illegal.

Howabout Phone Tech Support?

Are effing serious about this, man? 'cause I don't hear it in your voice. I'm picturing a sad, lonely little atom. Sitting in front of his computer and saying "I wish I could get my printer to connect" but deep in his carbon and CRAP heart, he really doesn't want it to print! He wants to fail. Failing is comforting, man. Is that it? You want to fail? You want to go to work tomorrow and say "I couldn't print nuttin', man. My printer doesn't respect me, man." And all your failure loving friends will say "That's okay. You are just like us and we're happy being failures." The man wants you to be a failure, you know. That's how he gets his rocks off. Little particle man can't print. Ohh wee kapow!

Look, man. You got two choices. You can want this printer to connect or you can pick it up and smash it in to little failure bits! What's it gonna be, man? Are you a freaking failure just like all those other people? Are you going to go to work tomorrow and cry to your failure friends and hope they see you as a failure too? Is that what you want?

No? Good! You're breaking out of the mold that the man cast you in, man. You're ready to take it by the balls. Look at that printer and say "I'm not a failure, man. I own you now!" Say it!

Okay, man. I hear you. You got the moxy and you're ready to own this printer. You with me? You ready for this, man. Are you ready to own the freaking moment? Are you? Great.

Now, you got power going to the printer, man? 'cause you need power. Are the lights on? Are you someplace that has electricity? It's essential. It's required. Now paper is another essential. Gotta be good paper, too. Made for printers...

And Hitler never personally killed those 6 million Jews; he wasn't even present when the gassings took place.

Dude, yer freakin me out. I've seen a number of interviews of Manson over the years, and that's exactly how he talks, except he's maybe a little more disjointed.

But nice job channeling a serial killer. Don't come to my house.

He never killed the other 5 million communists, trade unionists, gypsys, homosexuals and the retarded, either.

I'm pretty sure those others weren't 5 million each... When you kill a specific type of person at a 6:1 ratio to others, I'm sure they will be the most talked about when your name comes up.

I think he should (like all other lifers with no disease) be hooked up to a blood draw machine and produce copious amounts of blood for the general public. At least he would be contributing to society instead of continuing to rape it.

But the left wingers will want him to have art and music provided to him so he can express his feelings as a human being. F that!
