Charles Manson - the Serial Killer - still alive after all these years
A news report today stated that Charles Manson is now 77 years old and is up for parole for the 12th time.
The old S.O.B. is still alive.
Charlie Manson formed some sort of "cult" in the late 1960's and wanted to incite a race war that he believed was prophesized in the Beatles' song "Helter Skelter."
Manson and other members of his so-called family were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate and six other people during a bloody rampage in the Los Angeles area during two August nights in 1969.
Sharon Tate was 8 1/2 months pregnant when she was killed at her hilltop home in Benedict Canyon on Aug. 9, 1969. Besides Tate, four others were stabbed and shot to death including Jay Sebring, 35; Voytek Frykowski, 32; Abigail Folger, 25, a coffee heiress; and Steven Parent, 18, a friend of Tate's caretaker. The word "Pig" was written on the front door in blood.
The next night, Manson rode along with his cohorts to the Los Feliz home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, then left three of them to commit the murders. "Death to pigs" was written on a wall, and "Healter Skelter," which was misspelled, on the refrigerator door.
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.
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.
Charles Manson has expressed no remorse or empathy for any of the victims.
We see so many deaths of soldiers, the police, firefighters and the innocent who die young, that it makes you wonder why God allowed this old bastard to live this long.
Sometimes God let's the Universe unfold as it will and not as it should. We don't know why.
Father, help all those who die in the line of duty. Amen.
Father, help the innocent. Amen
