If these Satans had been killed like they were supposed to be, California might not be broke today. The millions of dollars it has cost to incarcerate these souless robots for 40 years is probably too much to make known. What good has come of keeping these people alive anyway? To see them age and die? What a waste of sorely needed funds that California could use today.

These murders were brutal beyond belief. Sharon Tate pleaded that the life of her child be spared. Instead it was ripped from her womb. In honor of all those murdered so violently and needlessly that night, especially for that unborn child, Susan Atkins deserves to remain in prison until her last breath on earth.

Usually I am more compassionate, not in this case.

I've had mulled wine, but I don't think mulling prisoners is necessary.

This is a very old article that was posted quite awhile ago. Apparently, they just deleted the several hundred other posts, and act like it is new. She was denied compassionate release. Now word, yet, on her demise She is blind, bed-ridden and, on most days barely able to utter an intelligible word.

Crime and punishment is based on moral principles, not finance. Otherwise, wealthy people could pay their way out of prison.

Also, I have compassion for her, but that's not a reason to set her free--again, this is a moral issue, not an opportunity for conspicuous compassion at the expense of principles.

Terrorist, as a description, did not exist back in the days of manson family.. It is currently used to describe many groups who disagree with those in power. The manson family wasn't political group, they were whacked out hippes under the control of an even more whacked out charismatic leader. Sort of like a pope, bad president or fuhrer, but on a smaller scale. Certainly not said to justify, but to keep in perspective. How many people died today becasue of bush/chaney manipulating US into war. That is heinous, as well and affects far more people.

Rita: oh, about as many as Churchill/FDR/Stalin set up to be killed in WWII. You should remember those days, showin' your a$$ all over town.

Only her notoriety has kept her in prison for so long. Is a 60 year old women really still a threat to society? At that time, anyone who murdered while under the influence got 2nd degree murder at best. We have stop leaving people in prison forever just because it is politically correct and apply some reason to our sentencing an parole process.
