Charles Manson Now (Compliments to LA Now)
Charles Manson Over the Years:
The only reason we’ve had to pay decades of upkeep for this wanton killer was the revocation of the death penalty in the first place. What a mistake that was.
Don’t you mean the best argument ever for the death penalty?
Manson is the poster boy for the death penalty.
Yeh–right RON! It’s nice how the TAXPAYERS pay this guy TO KEEP THAT OL’ SWASTIGA alive and well! BRING BACK THE FIRING SQUAD! And make any case of a public official stealing over $100,000 A CAPITAL OFFENSE! (Hanging should be the punishment for that one.) But…if you sell your house and move out of L.A. County—A medal of FREEDOM should be awarded! The Carrot vs. the Stick approach in 2012.
The death penalty isn’t about the criminal, it’s about society’s approach to live. The more brutal a society, the more it favors the death penalty.
What will we do if there comes a time when a Charlie Manson could be completely rehabilitated and we knew for a fact that he would then accomplish the equivalent of discovering the Salk Polio Vaccine?
I remember this case very well. Cannot imagine a worse punishment.
The Manson Gang deserve this punishement. They were incredibly cruel.
“Life is indeed precious, and I believe the death penalty helps to affirm this fact.”
Edward Koch, former NYC Mayor
I am convinced that the repeated parole hearings, the indefensible pardons of heinous murderers about the nation, and that this better life given to Charley and his gang has contributed to the ambiguous feeling about any punishment in America, in general, and the continued high homicide rate in areas where social controls are weak.
