This post has been corrected. See the note below.
After 11 failed bids for freedom, notorious killer Charles Manson, now 77, is up for parole later this month. The parole board rejected his bid in 2007, saying Manson [For the record, 9:42 a.m. April 5: An earlier version of this post incorrectly gave the killer's last name as Mason.] "continues to pose an unreasonable danger to others and may still bring harm to anyone he would come in contact with."
Manson refused to participate in that hearing, describing himself as a "prisoner of the political system." He also declined to participate in any psychological evaluations in 2007.

Eric Holder could use an assistant. Manson would be ideal considering that their goals appear to be pretty much the same.
LOL!! Nice gutshot!
I wonder what ol’ Charlie looks like now that he’s pushing 80....?
I’m for paroling him as soon as those he killed come back to life.
When my wife and I married in the early 1970’s we move into a rental less than a mile from where Manson was living. In fact I think he still lives there, Vacaville Corrections Facility but I doubt the trailer park we lived in just down the road from the prison gate is still there.
Of course they will let him out, BHO needs Manson to campaign for him.
And then there is an open professors job at Santa Cruz University, he can share an office with Angela Davis.
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.He's a child of the liberal courts.
Ah, Charlie! The beauty of the English language! Parole? Why “fat chance” and “slim chance” mean the same thing.
If there was justice this monster should have been worm bait a long time ago.
Naaahhh, Charlie would have offers coming out his ears to do a reality TV show. Maybe MTV could recruit him to live in a house with a bunch of twenty-somethings. Wouldn't that be a hoot!!
Wow, that took me by surprise! I see the nazi tattoo is still there.
I believe he was supposed to be executed but Libs cried and he got life instead.
He, and his followers, should have been gassed 40 years ago!
Charlie Manson, born, raised and educated in Ohio, looks pretty damn good for almost 80 years old.
Notorious killer? Who did he kill? His followers did the murderers.
Many an Iman should be on death row for the actions of their followers by that logic.
Do you have a picture of him wearing a hoodie eating Skittles?
Release him to the south side of Chicago.
He plans to tour with Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan.
His eyes have always looked crazy, but now they just look sad. Guess he’s had ample time for thought.
Excellent point, F.I.P.!
And good enough for me - true “Arab Spring” freedom will only be realized when imam’s shrunken heads are being sold
3 for $10 on street corners in Teheran, Cairo, Riyadh, etc.
Can’t happen soon enough for me.
What’s funny is everyone thinks of grandmothers as kindly old ladies, like their own grandmother. Yet they were young and slutty and violent and drunken and vicious once too.
Charlie looks very well for almost 80 years old,
Meanwhile, people in their 70s on the outside look like cheet from all the stress..
Releasing him would probably be a death penalty.
Poor Charlie has it rough these days. A few years back I read that the prison population has changed and the gang bangers don’t respect him.
I’d very much like to see that, too, except that it would only hasten his deification by the blithering idiot class.
Wouldn’t hurt for him to do a lil’ Al Jolson-esque makeover, either.
I’m reminded of the question, who killed more people, charlie or ted kennedy. (ted 1, charlie 0)
Someone snuck him a cellphone (a guard?) and it made the news a year or so ago.
Richard Speck live more than half his life in prison for the night of rapes and murders of some nursing students he committed.
After his death in prison, some videotapes surfaced of him snorting cocaine, waving around wads of $50 bills and giving a BJ to some other dude.
Celebrity criminals can have the heat come down on them, but some have it pretty cushy on the inside.
Prisons are filled with corruption on both sides of the bars.
Hell, Charlie looked better than Ted Kennedy, who was filthy rich...best doctors etc when he died at 77 years old.
In fact, Charlie looks better at nearly 80 years old, than most people I see in the late 60s, early 70s, on the streets.
Ted Danson already tried that.
My understanding is that his death penalty sentence was commuted to life in prison (with possibility of parole) when the Supreme Court put a hold on the death penalty.
However, since his was not a participant in the actual murders (unlike John Holmes, whom the LA prosecutors protected in another murder case), a death sentence seems extreme.
Manson is not a nice man. However William Ayers and others are far worse, far more guilty, and far more free.
...and we work very hard to portray that image. Now stop announcing our secrets for the whole world to see.
In fact, compared to a lot of rich people, with the best doctors, medical care etc, Charlie looks like he's been staying at a stress free resort.
Ya look at the poor guy living in Ohio, almost 80 years old, who got beat up by all the blacks, looked like a broken down hermit compared to Charlie.
MTV 2014 announces a new reality show, Charlie’s Angels. 6 tele-attractive young ladies aged 18-22 are put in a halfway house for a new reality program. Each of them are given conjugal visits with their mentor known as Charlie for their weekly indoctrination against Western civilization.
Did you know that Charles Manson (A) was tested as “clear” by Scientologists and (B) had an E meter that he used on his followers at the ranch?
How many people are dead from Scientology and how many of the killers are in prison for life?
Of course he looks good! No job related stress, 3 square meals every day, a well equipped gym and a well stocked prison library, no drugs or booze, heck yes that would help any one look good.
I am ticked off my tax money helps support this vile creature.
And I do agree that we should go after the hate-preaching Imams for the crimes of their followers. Of course Caliph Obama would never allow for it...
You bet, no financial worries, gets to read books, magazines all day, works out, no issues with taxes, bosses, payments...lol.
Charlie will probably out live most everyone in his generation.
Leno La Bianca
Rosemary La Bianca
Donald Shea no photo
and also add the unborn child of Sharon Tate.
Did Manson and Ayres know each other?
Charlie and Vincent were born on the same year!
Which one would you invite into your home? I’d like to meet Bugliosi so I could shake his hand and thank him.
The character/morals or visiting someone, had nothing to do with my comments.
My comment was Charlie and Vincent Bugliosi were born on the same year, yet Charlie looks a whole better than Vincent Bugliosi, and in fact most others who are near 80 years old.
Well I would probably look good for my age too if I got to spend the bulk of my adult life relaxing behind bars, getting three square meals a day, plenty of exercise, plenty of leisure time to read or watch TV and a solid 8+ hours of sleep every night.
Instead, I have spent the bulk of my adult life so far in the rat race in order to pay for my house and support my family. Getting up a 5am, working at least 10 hours a day and another 2-4 hours a day commuting. A good part of my weekends are consumed with chores around the house, yard work, etc. When I do get to take the occasional "vacation", it's rush here and rush there, keep the kids from fighting in the backseat, etc.
OK, so my life's not really as crappy as it sounds above but everything I've said is true and yes, it does age me a little faster then if I got to hang out in a prison yard all day without a worry or care in the world, knowing that all my basic needs would be taken care of for the rest of my life.
