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.

Why do these POS sociopaths even come up for parole anyway? They were sentenced to death. In a moment of extreame stupidity, California over turned the death penalty so their sentences were changed to "life". Why didn't they get "life without parole"?

California justice in the '70's was a freakin' JOKE! Those azzholes Bill and Emily Harris who kidnapped Patty Hearst did hardly any time at all. Kidnapping and trying to overthrow the Americna government should get you "life without parole" automatically.

Are you people aware that Tex Watson, the azzhole who stabbed Sharon to death has gotten married and has had three children while he has been in prison. He's now a born again Christian and his wife raised their children on welfare. So nice that the State of Califoria allowed conjugal visits to a mass murderer that ended up with him having children that the State of California had to support.

Nice that he is now a Christian and all that but he still killed five people.

RIP beautiful Sharon and all the other Manson victims. Justice will be served in the end.

Nice touch, TMZ...cropping out the swastika tattoo to make him just look old instead of old and crazy.

He's not a mass murderer! If you knew history he NEVER killed anyone. He had everyone do it for him.

Should have been executed long ago. Taxpayers have been the victims ever since his sentence was commuted.

Sorry Charlie. Better luck next time. You could always ask Barak O. for a pardon before he leaves office.
