Charles Manson

Parole Denied

0411_charles_mason_denied_parole
Infamous mass murderer Charles Manson just lost his last real shot at freedom ... the parole board just denied his latest request for release.

The hearing took place at Corcoran State Prison in CA...where Manson-- who was convicted of 7 murders in 1969 ... including Sharon Tate's-- was previously denied parole 11 times.

Now ... at the ripe old age of 77 this is most likely the murderer's last stand...since his case cannot be heard again for another 15 years ... putting him well into his 90s.

Only one Manson Family member convicted of murder has been paroled -- Steve Grogan--who was granted his freedom in 1985 for aiding the authorities and good behavior.

If you recall...Manson was originally sentenced to death in 1972 but it was commuted after the California death penalty was declared unconstitutional.

Charlie Manson should be FREED.

Kill a liberal, spend eternity in jail. Kill a Republican, get out of jail tomorrow.

He wasn't sentenced to death in 1972 you morons, he was sentenced to death on On April 19, 1971. He sentence was commuted in 1972! You people at TMZ should really stick to Brit Brit, Kardashian's and the Biebs...

Actually, if you do your research Manson participated in the murders on the second night. He also killed Gary participated in the killing of Gary Hinman. He was the one that initiated the attack on him by chopping off his ear with a sword. He was not just a mastermind. he was a cold blooded killer. Not to mention all of the rapes he committed.

I once saw a Charles Manson interview, several years ago. The interviewer asked Chuck what he would do if he was released, to which Chuck replied "If they let me out, I'm gonna kill everybody". Nuff said....

Incorrect there are two Manson Family members released into the world- Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme who attempted to assassinate President Ford in 1976 was one of the original and, , members of the Manson family (and most likely the 'family' still exists in her mind) and was released from Federal Prison a few years ago.

Also a fact, he DID indeed MURDER it was just not put into trial nor was it the more publicized cases. He took physical part in the murder of a music teacher, Gary Hinman and a ranchhand Donald "Shorty" Shea.

There's a problem here    

Yeah back in the good old days Chuck managed to get convicted. Today he wouldn't even be charged. Kind of makes you think, doesn't it?
