Charles Manson Died Yesterday

Press release from the California Department of Corrections:

 Charles MansonInmate Charles Manson, 83, died of natural causes at 8:13 p.m. on Sunday, November 19, 2017, at a Kern County hospital.

Inmate Manson was admitted to state prison from Los Angeles County on April 22, 1971, for seven counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder for the August 1969 deaths of Abigail Ann Folger, Wojciech Frykowski, Steven Earl Parent, Sharon Tate Polanski who was eight months pregnant, Jay Sebring, Leno La Bianca and Rosemary La Bianca.

On December 13, 1971, Manson received a first-degree murder conviction from Los Angeles County for the July 25, 1969, death of Gary Hinman and another first-degree murder conviction for the August 1969 death of Donald Shea.

Inmate Manson was originally sentenced to death. In 1972, the Superior Court of California in the County of Los Angeles vacated and set aside the death penalty pursuant to People v. Anderson (1972). The decision caused all capital sentences in California to be commuted to life in prison. Manson’s death sentence was modified to life on February 2, 1977. California did not have the life-without-parole sentence at the time.

California inmates who receive a sentence of life with the possibility of parole are entitled to parole consideration hearings after serving the legally required minimum term. Inmate Manson had been denied parole 12 times between November 16, 1978, and April 11, 2012; the last parole hearing he attended was March 27, 1997. He was not eligible to have another parole hearing until 2027.

Inmate Manson had been housed in the Protective Housing Unit at California State Prison-Corcoran since 1989. The unit houses inmates whose safety would be endangered by general population housing. He had also been housed at San Quentin State Prison, California Medical Facility, Folsom State Prison and Pelican Bay State Prison.

  • EVIL!! he absolutely scared the crap out of me.👹

  • Aufwiedersehen Charlie, have fun in Hell where you belong!!! Evil is an understatement with him!!!

  • He was a sick criminal and a relentless showman. Ego manic. Surely and sadly made his mark.
    May he now learn about true love, and see the wrongs of his life. May his soul be healed.

  • DELUSIONAL LIBERAL

    This makes me mad such a liberal state protected him to live to a ripe old age.

  • Charles Manson admitted to using marijuana proving what marijuana does to people.

    He’d fit in well and unnoticed among marijuana growers cultivating the plant of peace.

    • [edit] You’re not funny, you don’t contribute. They let you out recently, didn’t they?

      The fascination with Manson should have ended 40 years ago. He was a nothing POS, but he knew how to play the media. An NPR show on him yesterday noted his fascination with Dale Carnegie’s course in manipulating people. He started out as a pimp and developed his craft from there and kept on doing it from behind bars. Just hit the ignore button for both Charlie and the Chump.

      • Typical HumCo lib. Anyone who thinks differently than YOU should be deleted, right?

        Charlie Manson was a product of the drug era. He was a big small time loser with half his lame existence in jail before drugs took America’s wayward youth to hell and elevated Mad Chuck to godhood among the deadheads, Haight Ashbury and Woodstock crowd. It all culminated in the demonic Clinton era (which never seems to go away). Wild Bill and Mad Chuck should have shared a prison cell. They deserve each other and shall meet in hell.

        • Typical Humco jackboot neo follower. Make things up, lie lie lie, and point the finger. It works for the highest political position in the land, and the brownshirt followers have caught on. Briliant.

    • Charlie also was a sexual deviant and there was a lot of perversion in the “family”. Even reports of homosexuality. This certainly was the result of marijuana use.

      • Damn, still calling homosexuality deviant? Same sex marriage has been legal in the US since 2015. The US Supreme Court, science and the rational human beings all agree that it is within the range of normal human behavior.

    • Chump, your constant negativity only proves that you should look into the use of it. Your constant vocalization of matters you clearly know nothing about does nothing to help increase the likelyhood that anything you have to say has any value to the rest of us.

    • He was also a deadhead and a hippie who used LSD. It’s hard to pin down which of these things was most responsible for his demented and murderous psychosis. Since these are all terribly mind-destroying activities. But yes- the devil lettuce was certainly part of it. And yes- he would have fit in well up here growing devil’s lettuce while his neighbors avoided turning him in so they could continue harvesting their profits.

    • Back so soon chump? Maybe your garden is much smaller than I had imagined?

    • Enough already.

  • Your tax dollars at work, again… Manson is a good example of everything that can go wrong – a sick man in a sick time living in a sick culture that couldn’t stomach punishing evil…

    Taking drugs is never the answer.

    Manson died in a hospital, under care, and this is so much more than he deserved… Au Revoir Charlie, you made life feel so random…

  • It was LSD that they took that day.yes he also smoked dope,to come down, his words!!!

  • A perfect example of “waste of oxygen” if there ever was one! Honestly, based on the deeds done and lack of remorse he should have been fried at the start so us taxpayers did not have to support him throughout his long life in prison.

    California, the bastion of the libtards!

  • Charlie used to live on my road, before he went bad. He also used to shoplift at the local grocery store by utilizing the girls — Patricia Krenwinkle, Susan Atkins, et al. The girls would be half naked to attract attention while Charlie would attempt to shoplift.

    The remains of his old camp site was pretty much intact — an old Metro truck with flowers, peace signs & funny writing on it; remains of a pot garden off a distance. A classic old 1960s hippy camp site. I suggested to the property owner that we build there a Charles Manson theme park — black school bus; wax figures of Charlie and family, etc. We`d sell “Free Charles Manson” and “Helter Skelter” bumper stickers. Seemed like a good idea to me but no one else liked it much.

    • I checked your story and charles manson never lived in your neighborhood.

      • Sorry to disappoint you but Charlie most certainly did live in my neighborhood, which is on the Mendocino coast. Could you please tell me exactly where my neighborhood may be?

        • Yes i can, it is exactly on the mendocino coast.

          • If you`d like to see my exact location, complete with my collection of vintage machinery, it`s the place that is directly over the center of the Earth. Easy to find on Google Earth

        • Yes. Charlie did hang on the Mendo coast for a little bit. As part of that wonderful hippie diaspora from the Haight after the Summer of Love. We in Mendocino County can claim a bunch of real winners as one-time residents- Charlie, Leonard Lake and Jim Jones come to mind immediately.

          • Manson, Jones, Lake, Ng and Kenneth Parnell all called Anderson Valley home. Charles lived briefly on Gschwend Road to be exact, before the locals had enough of his giving LSD and booze to the local kids, Leonard Lake and Charles Ng had the inn in Philo and Parnell was out Mt View Road. Throw in the Moonies with a chinchilla ranch east of Boontucky and you get a long list of yahoos for such a little valley.

          • Yes! A real rouge`s gallery in Mendocino Co. While “Tree Frog Johnson” didn`t kill anyone, he certainly deserves honorable mention. He lived in Albion. Don`t forget Charles Ng, the sidekick of Leonard Lake; he was here also. I knew a woman who was friends with these two before they went bad & considers herself lucky to have survived. She did mention Charles Ng had a good sense of humor. Also know a RE broker who met Leonard Lake & said he had “very bad energy”. Some Hells Angels wasted a family of four in Fort Bragg & other HA killed some people and buried them near Ukiah. One they threw down a well and dumped lime in an attempt to dissolve the body. They didn`t know they had to use quicklime (CaO) and used garden lime (Ca Oh2) they got at the farm supply. Apparently it turned the body into sort of a soapy material. I knew the deputy that went down in the well & dug this out. He was a tough customer, could eat the rectum right out of a buzzard. Not very smart though.

          • Charlie and family was in Mendo in ’69 -’70. Squeaky was there I met her.
            Don’t ignore the truth. They looked like just another hippie family back then. Who knew?

  • that house is in south leggett all tho it might have burned down in the early 80s

    • The place in S. Legget didn’t burn all the way down. It got rebuilt.

      I wonder also about that weird little “village” with the creepy falling in roofs on rt 1 between Legget and the coast. Did they live there? Or did one of the other creeps live there?

  • If he had only lived in Humboldt. People around here would have said he was a mental health candidate who could be helped and a productive part of society. Would have gotten a few years in jail and out on probation 10 times before prison.

  • Good bye -sshole of the earth! You cost California millions of dollars for your worthless pathetic evil carcass to be alive this long. Now let’s get to the next in line on death row and have them DIE!

  • Opportunity is what you can make of it.
    United Stand (Mendocino) would regularly receive letters typed by Charlie in response to our “Mendocino Grapevine” column. They were so odd, and chilling. We never responded, but I saved the letters (signed) and I’m not sure why; but I have a poem he wrote about Steel Dogs with Iron Jaws which creeps me out to this day and may be worth some $ if I ever get that needy.
    PS: Ben Round’s comment is spot on.

  • It all started with pot the gateway drug. Crazy guy!

  • unbridled phillistine

    Charlie was responsible for more killings then he got credit for. Supposed to be a bunch of people buried out at his old death valley site. Cadaver dogs have found numerous sites there but no paper work in place to dig them up, No missing persons filed or something. But his girls would lure young men back to the home stead and they would murder them. Thats the story i guess. Pretty sad.

    • Having received his letters, I completely agree. I can only wonder how many run-aways and drop-outs he (and his “family”) collected on his way to oblivion.

    “I am a teenage runaway girl”-C.M.
    Referring to his mom.

    Listen to his albums if you dare.
    Sick City is a pretty good tune…I guess. As far as hippie beach folk music goes.

    Good riddance,that was way too long.

  • I read somewhere he was born in prison, Says a lot about 1 of his parents.
    I’m glad he was locked away where he couldn’t hurt anyone again over his impulsive
    Demonic behavior. He used mind control & drugs to control the groupies that followed him to do his killing sprees.
    Glad our prison system worked and he was never set free.
    Evil pure evil
    As many who follow Satan are.

  • Chuck was one of my great success stories. We all pitched in and got him a gold watch. I really look forward to an eternity of tormenting him.
