Seems like she’s paid a pretty heavy price for her crime already. She needs to plead mercy from God, not man.

Hmmmm - don’t seem to recall her showing much mercy during the Manson family killings - why should she expect any?

SNIPPET from the link in post no. 1:

"In one of the most chilling moments of the Manson Family's crime spree was Atkins' account of how the actress pleaded for mercy for her unborn child.

"She asked me to let her baby live," Atkins said at a parole hearing 16 years ago. "I told her I didn't have mercy for her.""

Yours wins the day's humor award!

Hey Susan, we have some good news and some bad news! The good news is you're getting out on parole; the bad news is you're headed for Libya.

Maybe she can write her plea with some of Sharon Tate’s leftover blood she might have saved. In the style they did during their murder spree.Make a quick exit to hell,scum.

And for that, she’s been imprisoned for 40 years, can’t move, and ridden with painful cancer. Fitting karmic punishment.

I’m sure her victims wanted Mercy too, but they didn’t get to have a hearing and present the reasons why they should be shown mercy as they were brutally murdered, did they?

You reap what you sow! If that's not a statement on the divine law of cause and effect (i.e. karma) I don't know what is.

Observe God's punishment on this unrepentant sinner.

If she's the one I'm thinking of, someone did a television (cable?) special on her and she converted to christianity years ago and has been not only a role model prisoner but has helped or led some kind of program in the prison for other prisoners.

I don't care either way, but I think it kind of sucks that some murderers and rapists (Garrido?) can serve 1/10 to 1/4 of their prison sentence and get out to re-offend and then there are cases like this. I think I'd rather let her out so they can make room for younger, violent offenders.

Sharon Tate and yes, Susan Atkins is the one who stabbed her to death and while Sharon was begging for her life so she could give birth to her baby, Susan said to her "I have no mercy for you, bitch."

I wasn't born either, but I've read Helter Skelter and several articles and books, even Tex Watson's "Will You Die For Me?"

What a shame. She was so young and pretty once, and threw her whole life away on that demon-possessed Manson.

For her sake I hope she's saved.

They all threw their lives away. Leslie van Houten was a homecoming princess. Patricia Krenwinkle came from a nice family.

Manson, drugs, free love, the 60's. Ugly and evil.

I don’t care about mercy, I do care about saving money. If she can go somewhere and die for free it’s a good deal better than wasting another penny on treating her. In a perfect world the jailers would just let her suffer but I bet her medical treatments have cost the taxpayers a fortune.

She was sentenced to life and that is what she and the rest should have to serve.

Possessed, the whole lot of them. And people say there is no such thing as evil? Give Susan an exorcism, then let her repent and die.

Well, Tex was allowed conjucal visits so he is married and has 3 children! All of them were sentenced to death but their sentences were commuted to life when the death penalty was briefly outlawed in the 70s'.

Call me hard-hearted, but none of the Tate-LaBianca murderers deserve to be breathing air.

If you made a list of the worst injustices in the history of our country, that single act of judicial tyranny back in the early 70s (Furman v. Georgia?) that commuted EVERY death sentence in all 50 states, and allowed people like the Manson family and Richard Speck to live out their threescore and ten, would have to rank near the top.
