Susan Atkins -- Denied

7/15/2008 7:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Susan AtlkinsBrain cancer won't get you an early release from prison, not if you're Susan Atkins.

The California parole board denied the application for release by the jailed Manson follower. Atkins, who was diagnosed with brain cancer and may have only six months to live, had applied for Compassionate Release Consideration.

The L.A. County D.A. argued against it, saying, "[Atkins] has failed to demonstrate genuine remorse and lacks insight and understanding of the gravity of her crimes."

Atkins received the death penalty but it was commuted to life after the California death penalty was ruled unconstitutional.

Your actions have consequences, and she should know that lesson better than anyone else at this point. I am still horrified when I see the reactions of some of the girls as they were being led into court! I still don't understand how anyone can behave like that!

I'm glad they refused her request. She was supposed to be executed for her crime (and rightly so) and got a pass on that one. She doesn't deserve another one. And "Life" is supposed to mean that she dies in prison. Are we supposed to feel bad that now it looks like she's gonna die a little sooner than later?

This is the right decision, grave illness does not excuse/over turn a murder charge...clearly she has a problem understanding that she will never get out of jail and it's not from the brain tumor. She has continually tried to get released over the years. SHES NOT GOING ANYWHERE except straight to HELL!

" compassionate release consideration "

in this situation, TELLING the little lady to accept remorse,

is comparable to trying to " make " pete rose ADMIT he bet on baseball......

I think she should be entiltled to suffer more than Sharon Tate and her innocent babe. She should not receive any medical treatment! She made sure that those innocent victims suffered and died; so should she.
