Charlie Manson Up For Parole AGAIN
After 11 failed bids for freedom, notorious killer Charles Manson, now 77, is up for parole later this month.
The parole board rejected his bid in 2007, saying Manson “continues to pose an unreasonable danger to others and may still bring harm to anyone he would come in contact with.”
Manson refused to participate in that hearing, describing himself as a “prisoner of the political system.” He also declined to participate in any psychological evaluations in 2007.
The psych tests would probably be more like filling in a “Mad-Libs“ No, I don’t think Charlie is nuts, I think he has an enormous ego, that he loves to act like the Mad Hatter and he loves the attention it gets him.
“He refused to cooperate, so the conclusion they drew from the reports is he still remains a danger to the public,” Los Angeles County Deputy Dist. Atty. Patrick Sequeira said at the time. ”He was convicted of nine horrible murders. He has expressed no remorse or empathy for any of the victims.”
A new photo released by state prison system shows Manson with long, gray hair and a beard. It was released at the request of CNN in advance of next Wednesday’s parole hearing.
Manson was also convicted of the earlier murder of musician Gary Hinman in his Topanga Canyon home, and the slaying of former stuntman Donald “Shorty” Shea at the Spahn movie ranch in Chatsworth, where Manson had his commune.
For those that like say that Manson never actually hurt anyone please read up on these murders.
Manson initially was sentenced to death. A 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state’s death penalty law at the time unconstitutional and his death sentence was changed in 1977 to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Here are earlier photos (of Charles Manson) taken in 1968 and 2009:
Why do we keep playing the game? No one is going to let him out and he does not want to get out. This is a waste of tax payer’s money and it is a source of pain for the many lives he effected, infected and destroyed.
