    Charles Manson Family Accomplice Charles Denton “Tex” Watson Denied Parole

    Charles Denton “Tex “Watson – Charlie Manson’s Right-Hand Man

    And, rightly so.

    Charles Denton “Tex” Watson, one of the chief participants in the Manson Family murders in the summer of 1969, will stay in prison at least another five years, the California Board of Parole Hearings announced Wednesday.

    Watson, 65, was denied parole for the 16th time, the board said, and will not be considered again until 2016.

    Watson, along with Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Linda Kasabian were convicted in 1971 of murder and sentenced to death for the killings of five people, including the eight-months pregnant movie actress Sharon Tate, on the night of August 9, 1969. They and their leader, Charles Manson, were convicted and sentenced for stabbing Leno and Rosemary La Bianca to death the night after the Tate killings.

    Sharon Tate

    “Tex” Watson who is known as Charlie Manson’s right-hand man physically committed the murders at the homes of Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. Susan Atkins was present with Watson at both murder scenes. Atkins died in prison in 2009.

    Charles Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel also a Tate/La Bianca murder accomplice remains in prison and was denied parole earlier this year. Leslie Van Houten also remains in California prison.

    Linda Kasabian, who also was present at both murder scenes was granted immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying against Manson and his family of followers.

    Watson was convicted in 1971 of seven counts of murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

    He will be considered for another parole review in five years, prison officials said.

    Family members of Watson’s murder victims attended the hearing on Wednesday at Mule Creek State Prison in rural Ione, California, where he is held on a sentence of life with the possibility of parole, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    Charles Denton “Tex” Watson should have been executed decades ago along with Charles Manson and the rest of his scumbag followers. It is only because of the California Supreme Court’s decision, People V. Anderson that outlawed the death penalty (for a time) that saved his sorry ass from the gas chamber.

    Like Susan Atkins, Watson should NEVER be released and should die in prison. Here is one of the murder scene photos (Sharon Tate lies in her own blood):

    Charles Manson: Obama is a “SLAVE of Wall Street”

    The convicted murderer Charles Manson who has plenty of time on his hands has become a political pundit and weighs in on President Obama.

    Billionaire Donald Trump recently proclaimed he is the Democrats’ worst nightmare, but it’s hard to imagining someone more frightening than Charles Manson ending a 20-year silence to call you out.

    The 76-year-old spoke recently to Spain’s Vanity Fair magazine on the 40th anniversary of his conviction in the Sharon Tate and LaBianca murders.

    President Barack Obama is “a slave of Wall Street,” the diminutive cult leader said by telephone from Corcoran State Prison to journalist David Lopez.

    “He doesn’t realize what they are doing. They are playing with him,” Manson said of Obama. The president recently was being petitioned by Manson’s lawyer, Giovanni Di Stefano, to free the iconic killer, who has been incarcerated since 1969. That request was refused.

    Manson has always been the one for gaining attention.

    Now, he is playing the “crazy” card. But, Charley, you ain’t getting out of prison.

    Charles Manson Breaks 20 Year Silence on 40th Anniversary of Sharon Tate Murders to Speak About Global Warming – WTF?

    Charles Manson described himself as a ‘bad man who shoots people’ in a rambling phone interview from his Californian jail cell. He also spoke in Spanish to say of himself – ‘La Hierba Mala No Muere’ – English for ‘Weeds never die.’

    This criminal should have been executed years ago but thanks to the left-wing courts, he is ranting from a California prison and his victims are long dead. So, now he speaks about global warming – WTF?

    Crazed cult leader Charles Manson has broken a 20-year silence in a prison interview coinciding with the 40th anniversary of his conviction for the gruesome Sharon Tate murders – to speak out about global warming.

    The infamous killer, who started championing environmental causes from behind bars, bemoaned the ‘bad things’ being done to environment in a rambling phone interview from his Californian jail cell.

    ‘Everyone’s God and if we don’t wake up to that there’s going to be no weather because our polar caps are melting because we’re doing bad things to the atmosphere.

    ‘If we don’t change that as rapidly as I’m speaking to you now, if we don’t put the green back on the planet and put the trees back that we’ve butchered, if we don’t go to war against the problem…’ he added, trailing off.

    Manson, who described himself to his interviewer as a ‘bad man who shoots people’, brainwashed members of a commune known as The Family into butchering eight people including film director Roman Polanski’s pregnant wife Sharon Tate in July and August 1969.

    Speaking to Vanity Fair Spain magazine of the killing spree he led his crazed disciples on, the 76-year-old said: ‘I live in the underworld. I don’t tell people what to do. They know what to do.

    ‘If they don’t know what to do they don’t come around me because I’m very mean, I’m very mean.’

    Interspersing English with Spanish, he added: ‘I’m very mal hombre, nasty.

    ‘I’m in the bullring. I run in the bullring with the heart of the world.’

    ‘I don’t play. I shoot people.

    ‘I’m too bad. I’m a mean guy. I’m an outlaw. I’m a criminal. I’m everything bad.’

    Here is the murder scene photo of Sharon Tate.

    Here was Sharon Tate.

    Actress Sharon Tate, pictured here at London Airport, was murdered in August 1969

    And, what about the global warming?

    He is a founder of ATWA (which both stands for Air Trees Water Animals and All The Way Alive). It’s typically manic mission statement warns of the destruction of the planet from pollution.

    Another ATWA founder, Lynette Fromme,  was jailed for the attempted assassination of President Gerald Ford with an unloaded gun in 1975. The claimed she did so ‘for the redwoods’.

    On the environment, Manson said: ‘Sooner or later the will of God will prevail over all of you. And I was condemned as the will of God.’

    ‘We are all martyrs. Love is a martyr… I am a martyr. But I am also a victim. And I’m a performer. And a dam. I’m both. I am everything. I am nothing.’

    I would like to know how Charles Manson received access to a phone in the first place. He had been busted before for having an illegal cell phone in his prison cell. Did he cheat the system again?

    And, what kind of game is Manson playing? Playing the criminally insane to get out of Corcoran State Prison?

    Does Charley REALLY think California will EVER let him out of prison?

    Rot in prison, Manson, and rot in hell when you die.

    Charles Manson’s Attorney Asks President Obama for a Pardon

    Charles Manson in August 16, 1969 Mugshot

    This attorney had better ask California Governor Jerry Brown since Manson was convicted of a State of California crime not a federal one.

    Charles Manson’s attorney, Giovanni Di Stefano aka “The Devil’s Advocate,” has sent President Barack Obama an unbelievable communication.  Di Stefano, who also represented Saddam Hussein, faxed the President a request that his infamous client who is serving a life sentence in California’s maximum security Corcoran Prison be set free. 

    According to TMZ, Di Stefano is seeking a presidential pardon for Manson who was convicted and sentenced to death in 1970 for his role in the infamous Tate-LaBianca murders in Los Angeles.  When the death penalty was temporarily outlawed 2 years later, Manson and his followers–Patricia Krenwinkle, Leslie Van Houten, Charles “Tex” Watson, and the late Susan Atkins–all had their sentences commuted to life.  Manson has maintained his innocence ever since, arguing that he never ordered any of his followers to commit murder.

    Which is exactly what his attorney explained to President Obama in his fax.  “Manson was nothing more than a cult leader, not a murderer,” claims Di Stefano.  “Manson didn’t do the killing.”  According to the lawyer, Manson was at the very worst, guilty only of telling his followers to “do something witchy.”  If they misunderstood and took things too far, it wasn’t the cult leader’s fault.

    Uh Huh. But, the law and U.S. Constitution is clear.

    President Obama does not have jurisdiction.

    Sorry Charlie – rot in jail.

    Charles Manson Follower Patricia Krenwinkel Convicted for Sharon Tate Murders is Again Denied Parole

    1993 Patricia Krenwinkel Parole Hearing – Patti Tate takes the floor, opposing to the parole and speaking up for all the victims, specifically, her sister Sharon and Abigail Folger.

    Patricia Krenwinkel should spend the rest of her life in prison. The California Parole Board concurs at least for another seven years.

    In a decision suggesting that the brutal Sharon Tate murders are unforgivable, a parole board panel refused to consider releasing Patricia Krenwinkel, who told the board she killed for the love of Charles Manson.

    The two-member panel made clear Thursday that it was the horror of the killings, one of the most notorious of the 20th century, that led them to reject the bid for parole in spite of Krenwinkel’s efforts to change her life.

    They said that the murders of seven people in an extremely atrocious manner had impacted the entire world as evidenced by letters which came in from around the globe urging that she be kept behind bars.

    “These crimes remain relevant,” said parole commissioner Susan Melanson. “The public is in fear.”

    Melanson and Deputy Commissioner Steven Hernandez issued their decision after a four-hour hearing and more than an hour of deliberations at which Krenwinkel wept, apologized for her murderous deeds and said she was ashamed of her actions.

    Members of victims’ families also cried and recalled their suffering after the murders and called for her to be kept behind bars. Melanson said the notoriety of the crimes and their viciousness weighed heavily in the decision.

    Cult leader Manson, now 75, refused to appear at his most recent parole hearings where he was denied a release date. His multiple disciplinary violations and refusals to participate in rehabilitation activities make it likely that he will never be released.

    At times he has said that he does not want his freedom and considers prison his home.

    Krenwinkel, who has been imprisoned longer than any other woman in California, told the parole board earlier Thursday that she threw away everything good in herself and became a “monster” after she met Manson.

    Krenwinkel, 63, one of Manson’s two surviving female followers, has maintained a clean prison record in her four decades behind bars, but her chances for release appeared slim following parole rejections in other Manson cases.

    Krenwinkel was convicted along with Manson and two other female followers in seven 1969 murders, considered among the most notorious crimes of the 20th century.

    Leslie Van Houten is the youngest of the Manson followers at 61 and is considered the only likely one to ever be released from prison. She was denied parole last summer.

    The two-member parole board said after a Thursday hearing in Los Angeles that the 63-year-old Krenwinkel will not be eligible for parole again for seven years, the longest such period handed down to any of the Manson Family convicts.

    The panel said they were swayed by the memory and of the crimes, along with 80 letters which came from all over the world urging Krenwinkel’s continued incarceration.

    As far as I am concerned, Krenwinkel can rot in prison and should be thankful that she was NOT duly executed decades ago.

    Charles Manson Follower Patricia Krenwinkel Faces Parole Hearing

    And, she won’t likely receive parole either.

    A follower of Charles Manson who has been imprisoned longer than any other woman in California is facing a parole hearing on her conviction in the Sharon Tate killings.

    Grey haired Patricia Krenwinkel, one of Manson’s two surviving female followers, has maintained a clean prison record in her four decades behind bars, but her chances for release appear slim following the parole officials’ rejections in other Manson cases.

    Krenwinkel, 63, was convicted along with Manson and two other female followers in seven 1969 murders, considered among the most notorious crimes of the 20th Century.

    None of those convicted has ever been paroled and one of them, Susan Atkins, died in prison last year after being denied compassionate release when she was terminally ill with cancer.

    Leslie Van Houten, 61, the youngest of the women convicted was long thought to be the most likely to win eventual release. But she was denied a parole date last summer by officials who said she had not gained sufficient insight into her crimes.


    Parole boards have repeatedly cited the callousness, viciousness and calculation of the seven murders committed by members of the Manson Family.

    Krenwinkel admitted during her trial that she chased down and stabbed heiress Abigail Folger at the Tate home on Aug. 9, 1969 and participated in the stabbing deaths of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca the following night, Both homes were defaced with bloody scrawlings. She was convicted along with Manson, Van Houten and Atkins. Another defendant, Charles “Tex” Watson was convicted in a separate trial.

    All were sentenced to death but their sentences were commuted to life when the U.S. Supreme Court briefly outlawed the death penalty in 1972.

    The crime scene photo tells it all.

    Well, I wasn’t asked but the list compiled by John Hawkins is fairly lame. Here is the list:

    23) Saul Alinsky (7)
    23) Bill Clinton (7)
    23) Hillary Clinton (7)
    19) Michael Moore (7)
    19) George Soros (8)
    19) Alger Hiss (8)
    19) Al Sharpton (8)
    13) Al Gore (9)
    13) Noam Chomsky (9)
    13) Richard Nixon (9)
    13) Jane Fonda (9)
    13) Harry Reid (9)
    13) Nancy Pelosi (9)
    11) John Wilkes Booth (10)
    11) Margaret Sanger (10)
    9) Aldrich Ames (11)

    7) Ted Kennedy (14)
    7) Lyndon Johnson (14)
    5) Benedict Arnold (17)
    5) Woodrow Wilson (17)
    4) The Rosenbergs (19)
    3) Franklin Delano Roosevelt (21)
    2) Barack Obama (23)
    1) Jimmy Carter (25)

    I could compile my own worst 25 figures but the point is?

    Jim Geraghty has it RIGHT.

    I’m no fan of most of the Democrats on the list, and there are some good picks. But most of the modern political figures look ridiculous when we compare their actions to some of America’s most really notorious figures.

    No Al Capone? No Machine Gun Kelly or the Lindbergh baby kidnappers?

    No Jefferson Davis or anyone else associated with the Confederacy beyond John Wilkes Booth? Speaking of presidential assassins, no Lee Harvey Oswald? (Oh, I know, I know, he was the fall guy for the big conspiracy.) Aaron Burr gets a pass for killing Alexander Hamilton in a duel?

    Charles Manson, however, would definitely be at or near the top of my list.  Ted Bundy, too.

    Charles Manson Follower Leslie Van Houten Denied Parole

    Van Houten was denied parole for the nineteenth time.

    A parole board has denied freedom for Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten for the 19th time.

    Van Houten was convicted of murder and conspiracy in the August 1969 slayings of wealthy grocers Leno and Rosemary La Bianca.

    That was one night after actress Sharon Tate and four others were killed. Van Houten did not participate in the Tate slayings.

    Charles Manson and the rest of them, including Van Houten should stay the rest of their lives in prison.

    Leslie Van Houten was convicted of murder and conspiracy in the killings of wealthy grocers. The La Biancas were killed by stabbing to death in August 1969 just a night after the killings of actress Sharon Tate, Jay Sebring, Abigail Folger, and Voityck frykowski and Steven Parent.

    Leslie Van Houten was not involved in the first night killings but she went along other cult members when La Biancas were killed. Leslie Van Houten confessed that she joined in stabbing Mrs. Rosemary La Bianca.
    Mason cult killings became one the most notorious murder cases of the 20th century and it rivet the pubic attention even after more than four decades.

    Charles Manson Follower Susan Atkins Has Died at 61

    Charles Manson followers Leslie Van Houton, Susan Atkins and Patricia Krenwinkel

    Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins has died at the age of 61 in a prison hospital in Chowchilla, California.

    Susan Atkins, who committed one of modern history’s most notorious crimes when she joined Charles Manson and his gang for a 1969 killing spree that terrorized Los Angeles and put her in prison for the rest of her life, has died. She was 61.

    Atkins died at the Central California Women’s facility in Chowchilla on Thursday night, said Terry Thornton, spokeswoman for the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

    Atkins, who had been receiving medical care at the prison’s nursing facility over the past year, died of natural causes, Thornton said. Sources told The Times she had been battling brain cancer. She was pronounced dead at 11:46 p.m.

    Now, finally some JUSTICE for the Tate and LaBianca families. Remember the crime scene of Sharon Tate’s murder and that of her unborn child?

    Remember Susan Atkins famously told a sobbing and begging Sharon Tate prior to her murder and mutilation, “Look bitch, I have no mercy for you.”

    Susan Atkins was convicted of eight murders and was the longest-serving prisoner among women held in California prisons. This distinction now falls on fellow Charles Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkle who was also convicted of the Tate-LaBianca murders.

    Atkins confessed to killing actress Sharon Tate, the pregnant wife of director Roman Polanski who was hanged and stabbed 16 times; Tate’s nearly full-term fetus died with her. The next night, Atkins accompanied Manson and his followers when they broke into the Los Feliz home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca and killed them.

    “She was the scariest of the Manson girls,” said Stephen Kay, who helped prosecute the case and argued against Atkins’ release at her parole hearings. “She was very violent.”

    Former chief prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, who sought and won death sentences for Atkins, Manson and other followers, said Atkins would be remembered “obviously as a member of a group that committed among the most horrendous crimes in American history. She apparently made every effort to rehabilitate herself.”

    He added: “It has to be said that she did pay substantially, though not completely, for her incredibly brutal crimes. And to her credit, she did renounce — and, I believe, sincerely — Charles Manson.”

    It was Atkins who broke open the case when she bragged of her participation in the slayings to cellmates at Sybil Brand Institute in East Los Angeles, where she was being held on other charges; two of her cellmates told authorities of her confession. After prosecutors promised not to seek the death penalty against her, Atkins appeared before a grand jury, providing information that led to her own indictment, as well as that of Manson and others. Later, in a lurid 10-month trial, she provided crucial testimony that fed the public’s fascination with Hollywood celebrities, drugs, sex and violence.

    It also left an unshakable image of Atkins as a remorseless killer, who taunted the court at her sentencing with chilling words: “You’d best lock your doors,” she said, “and watch your own kids.”

    In 1971, two separate juries found Manson, Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel and Charles “Tex” Watson guilty on seven counts of first-degree murder. Another Manson follower, Leslie Van Houten, was convicted of two murders. All received the death sentence, later reduced to life terms after the California Supreme Court abolished the death penalty in 1972. (The Legislature later reenacted the death penalty statute.) Manson, Krenwinkel, Watson and Van Houten remain in prison.Atkins also pleaded guilty to the murder of musician Gary Alan Hinman, who was killed in a dispute over money shortly before the Tate-LaBianca murders. She received another life sentence for the Hinman killing.

    Susan Atkins has been living on borrowed time for the past 40 years. May she atone to our creator for the heinous crimes against humanity.
