For those who are old enough to remember, or who have read about the Manson family or seen a movie about them...do you think Leslie Van Houten should be paroled?

quote:
Van Houten was convicted for her role in the Manson family's 1969 murders of Leno LaBianca, a wealthy grocery store owner, and his wife, Rosemary. Prosecutors said Van Houten stabbed Rosemary between 14-16 times in the back, although Van Houten has maintained Rosemary was already dead when she began stabbing her.

Van Houten also was convicted of conspiracy in the butchering of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four others at Tate's Beverly Hills home.

Charles Manson and three other followers, Charles "Tex" Watson, Susan Atkins and Patricia Krenwinkel, were convicted and sentenced to death for their part in the Tate-La Bianca murders. The sentences were later commuted to life when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the death penalty in the 1970s. All five remain behind bars.


I believe that keeping them all behind bars is the appropriate decision'~

sigh...I LIKE her...I hate what she did, but I understand drug-induced madness and hero-worship-induced mind control.

But?

SURPRISE....

I'm not that easy.

"Too bad. Too sad."

I LIKE her..but MURDER?

really pisses me off...
