Charles Manson Denied Parole Again

Charles Manson, now 77 years old, was denied parole today by the California parole board. It was the 12th time Manson has been rejected for release.

Manson is serving a life sentence for seven murders in a 1969 killing spree in Los Angeles.

Of course, Manson boycotted the hearing and did not attend. Manson hasn’t attended any of his parole hearings since 1997. He claims to be a “political prisoner.”

Manson’s next hearing is scheduled for 2027 he would be 92 by then.

Has Manson been a model inmate? Not really. He has violated several rules in the five years since his last parole hearing. He has been caught in possession of a weapon, threatened a peace officer, and has been caught twice with contraband cell phones in the past three years.

Manson placed calls and messaged people in California, New Jersey, Florida, British Columbia, and elsewhere. The incidents, in 2009 and 2011, are still under investigation.

In case you forgot: Manson was convicted of seven counts of first degree murder for a 1969 killing spree in Los Angeles. The killings included the fatal stabbing of five people in Tate’s home, and the murders of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. Manson was sentenced to death, but the sentence was modified in 1977 to “life in prison without the possibility of parole,” after a 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court that determined the state’s death penalty statute at the time was unconstitutional.

Debra Tate, the sister of murdered actress Sharon Tate, attended the today’s hearing.

An update on the rest of the “Manson Family.”

For years, Charles Manson has said he never killed anyone.
Now he said he put five people in graves.
You just don’t know what to believe when he speaks.
Manson is a liar, con artist, thief, pervert and a killer.
He is a scumbag who makes a laughingstock of himself.
He laughs at the system, but he sits in a jail cell for 23 hours a day alone with no hope.
It is a shame that tax money supports his life in prison.
Manson does not deserve to be alive.
