OMG how awful. I had nightmares after reading Helter Skelter.I keep hoping that somebody will kill him in prison just for the notoriety but it never seems to happen. He doesn't look like he's mellowed much to me.
I went to school with the younger sister of Abigail Folger, one of the people killed with Sharon Tate. It was a pretty uncomfortable day in criminal law class when we had to cover that case; the professor didn't realize the connection and called on my friend because he thought it was funny they had the same last name. Most uncomfortable awkward silence I've ever been a part of.
He used to have parole hearings every year or so. Sharon Tate's mother attended, but Manson stopped attending after a while. Even he knew he wasn't getting out. It was such a joke.I just did a quick wiki on him as i didn't know much about him, it says he's eligable for parole in 2012...gulp!!
