Let's talk about Charles Manson.. Baby Mutilator 18 kids; Modesto, California 13001 posts

I had a thought today. I kinda don't understand why he received a life sentence when he didn't actually commit any of the murders himself. I feel like he should be in prison for conspiracy, but I feel like every one of his "followers" should be held accountable for their own actions. I don't believe in the word "brainwashed" at all..what are your thoughts?

I agree. Don't get me wrong... I think he deff should have served time for his part. But yes he didn't actually PHYSICALLY kill anyone. So I don't see it as right that he got charged for that.

SO doesn't understand my point of view. I agree that he had a part in conspiring to commit these murders, but he didn't physically kill any of these people...I haven't really looked at any of his followers sentences, so I might as well do that too

Agree. My SO and I have said the same thing.

Then his followers are bonkers too. If they can't see that him telling them to do something is wrong, and they would actually have to commit the murders while he had no hand in it, they deserve worse. If someone told me to kill someone, I'd decline and report them to the authorities, obviously.

I disagree with you. But also, i saw a documentary/interview on tv once where he's said he doesn't want to be a contributing member of society & that he has told prison committees multiple times if he is released on parole, he'll kill again just to be sent back. Free meal. Free room & board. Showers. & fan mail (seriously! FAN MAIL!)...i can see why he wouldn't wanna work his ass off like the rest of the world. What an evil monster!

Well... people who "put hits out" should still be charged for murder IMO. Just because you didn't do it yourself physically doesn't mean you shouldn't be charged when, with your influence, someone died.



I don't know shit about Charles Manson though. But I definitely believe in brain washing.

Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme
On Friday, Aug. 14, 2009, "Squeaky" Fromme, 60, was released on parole from the Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas after serving 34 years for trying to shoot then-President Ford in 1975. For years she remained one of Manson's loyal followers, corresponding with him after many of his former followers shunned him. A spokeswoman for the prison would not say if they are still in touch



So what about this particular follower?

I agree. He is just as guilty if not more guilty than his followers because he brainwashed them into doing his dirty work. It's ridiculous that anyone would think since he didn't physically commit the crimes that he shouldn't be punished as harshly.

They all got the same sentence if I am not mistaken.
