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.

Those eyes say it all. I can tell everything about a person by looking into their eyes and this sick piece of crap deserves to be shot in the head, why keep him in jail and take more space? Someone needs to shoot him and the guy claiming to be his son... needs to be shot too. Any kid of his is garbage.

Oh I was hoping he got released. He would have a job as a Papparazzi, no background check no morals Claus we would be perfect fit right in with the TMZ crew.

I'm glad the death penalty was revoked, death is too good for this piece of sh*t. He needs to live every day locked in a box in pure misery.

Good riddance!    

It's only sad that he didn't suck hydrogen cyanide gas a long time ago. It's said to be a really, really bad way to go.

Anyone with a swastika on their forehead is a living hater that should be in jail anyway. Charlie Mason ****ed with the cops, stuck his finger at any type of authority and is himself a little hitler. They should make bars of soap from his fat cells and pass the bars out to his fellow nazi's

These comments just prove American stupidity and how they don't even know WHAT Manson did, yet act like they're so enraged by him. Hey idiots, how about you READ SOMETHING on the topic instead of getting your info from FOX news, and thinking you're smart.

Manson didn't kill anyone. He was never convicted of killing anyone. He was found guilty of 'brainwashing' women into killing people. He wasn't even at the scene of the crime when the murders took place.

So stop claiming he is a "serial killer" because he ISN'T ONE.
