CHARLES MANSON'S SECRET PRISON BUSINESS (Has Become one of Richest Inmates)
New York Post ^ | August 2, 2009

Posted on 08/03/2009 11:55:05 AM PDT by nickcarraway

CHARLES Manson secretly runs an autograph business out of his cell, peddling his signature to sicko collectors of crime memorabilia, a new book claims.

In "Five to Die," out this month from Thor Publishing, veteran journalist Ivor Davis claims the homicidal cult leader has become one of the richest inmates in the California corrections system by selling signed photos and other mementos he quietly smuggles out of Corcoran State Prison.

"Only he doesn't even sign the pictures. He has fellow inmates doing an assembly line of signatures for him. It shows you he's still manipulating people. It really boggles the mind," Davis told Page Six.

Maybe Phil Spector can become his new buddy. I hear Charlie sent a “note” to Phil asking to meet. A local radio talk show guy mentioned that, for Phil, the deep realization of just what you’ve got yourself into must have come when he got a note from Charlie Manson and it didn’t have a stamp on it!

Charlie was just ahead of his time. After all, he was just killing rich people. he would fit right in with the Obama philosophy.

Manson is no more a criminal than Ayers and Dorhn, so why not?

Manson was convicted in 1971 and given the death penalty. That sentence was struck down in 1972 and became life in prison. Rose Bird was not even the chief justice of the CA Supreme Court until 1978. Manson is eligible for parole every four of five years, but he will never be released because he will be shot the minute he sets foot out of prison. Hmmm...swift justice!

I thought there were laws that made it impossible to profit from the crime someone is incarcerated for.

Obama pals Dohrn and Ayers' Weather Underground and the Manson Family basically had the same agenda: to incite a race-based, black vs white revolutionary overthrow of the capitalist class ('pigs'). That is what Wright's Black Liberation is all about...

"Their founding document [the Weather Underground's] called for the establishment of a "white fighting force" to be allied with the "Black Liberation Movement" and other "anti-colonial" movements[1] to achieve "the destruction of US imperialism and the achievement of a classless world: world communism."..."-Berger, Dan (2006).

"they [the Weather Underground] employed revolutionary jargon, advocated armed struggle and black liberation and began bombing buildings, taking responsibility for at least 20 attacks. Estimates of their number ranged at times from several dozen to several hundred."

Charles Manson's Helter Skelter:

"Helter Skelter would begin, according to one of Charlie's devotees, 'with the black man going into white people's homes and ripping off the white people, physically destroying them. A couple of spades from Watts would come up into the Bel Air and Beverly Hills district...and just really wipe some people out, just cutting bodies up and smearing blood and writing things on the wall in blood...all kinds of super-atrocious crimes that would really make the white man mad...until there was open revolution in the streets, until they finally won and took over. Then the black man would assume the white man's karma. He would then be the establishment'..."

Confession (Manson Family)

When they got in the house, Susan [Atkins] said that in the living room there was a man on the couch and a woman on the chair reading. Then some of Susan's group stayed in the living room, while Susan went into the bedroom where Sharon was sitting on the bed talking to Jay Sebring. They quickly put nooses over Sharon and Jay's heads so that if they moved they would choke.

Frykowski ran for the door. "He was full of blood," she said and claimed that she had stabbed him three or four times. "He was bleeding and he ran to the front part, and would you believe that he was there hollering 'Help, help, somebody please help me,' and nobody came? Then we finished him off."

"Sharon was the last to die," Susan said with a laugh as she described how Sharon was begging her, " Please don't kill me. Please don't kill me. I don't want to die. I want to live. I want to have my baby. I want to have my baby."

Susan said she just looked at Sharon straight in the eye and said, "Look, bitch, I don't care about you. I don't care if you're going to have a baby. You had better be ready. You're going to die and I don't feel anything about it...In a few minutes I killed her."

Susan said she saw that there was Sharon's blood on her hand and she tasted it. "Wow, what a trip! To taste death, and yet give life."

How is this legal? Isn’t there some law that says that a person convicted of a heinous crime cannot profit from that crime? Son of Sam law?

Ayers, Manson, and Dohrn all deserve the same fate, yet one is in prison for life and the other two are cohorts of Obamugabe.
