Sure, what the hell. I live in Detroit. How bad can she be?

The movie, Helter Skelter, freaks me out every time I see it.

How about ‘my life after Krenwinkel’.

That’s one that won’t get a chance to be made.

Ms. Krenwinkel is now the longest serving woman in the California prison system. She says she takes full responsibility for her actions — finally, she says, she is a woman she can accept. But is society ready to accept her back?

No.

Next question.

Correct. Bloom where you are planted Ms. K. It’s a better opportunity than you gave your victims.

She seems to be doing very well in prison. Why change her surroundings?

Could barely endure looking and listening to her....unable to forget what she did and was part of. People make mistakes, but this one was unforgivable.

No. Next question.

No argument.

Killing seven innocents? There is no coming back from that.

At all.

Ever.

Yes and Sharon Tate or the LaBiancas will never get to write a book with that or the headline as a title.

Patricia Krenwinkel, Leslie Van Houten nor any Manson family murderers should ever be released. Period.

We can thank gov. Moonbeam and Rose Bird for declaring the death penalty unconstitutional and reducing Charlie and his family to life imprisonment.

No sympathy. She may have been young, but she made choices that ended with innocent people dying. Live your life in the habitat to which you have become accustomed, Ms Krenwinkel. A lot of us ‘children of the 60’s’ didn’t make those destructive choices.

“No. Next question.”

There is no benefit to releasing someone who could do this; I hope the taxpayers feeding her are getting their money’s worth. This monster should be on a chain gang until she expires.

Ironically she talks about the choices she has and choices she makes to be the person she wants to be. Too bad her victims did not have a choice.

"Helter Skelter" is the only book I have read completely in one sitting. I picked the book up one evening, and did not put it down until I reached the last page. It must have been four in the morning. Lucky I was off that next day.

Seeking to inspire a race war, Manson ordered Ms. Krenwinkel and other members of his group to commit a series of murders. Over the course of two nights, they savagely murdered seven people, inflicting more than 130 stab wounds. One of them, the actress Sharon Tate, was eight and a half months pregnant. At their trial, the women shamelessly admitted their crimes and flaunted their allegiance to a leader they loved, but who clearly controlled their minds.

A, how does this author know that Manson "clearly controlled their minds?" And B, if they are so weak that they follow the murderous orders of a psychopath why should they be let out?

Bernadine Dohrn in December 1969, joking about the Manson family murder of Sharon Tate:
" Dig it! First they killed those pigs and then they put a fork in pig Tate’s belly. Wild! Offing those rich pigs with their own forks and knives, and then eating a meal in the same room, far out! The Weathermen dig Charles Manson!"

Sometimes those guilty of terrible crimes are released, for a variety of reasons. The three men guilty of kidnapping and burying a busload of schoolkids (all of whom escaped that dark pit) in the Chowchilla kidnappings were considered for parole. After being jailed for some 36 years, two were released in 2012.

The Weather Underground, who supported the murderers’ actions, got less time for their own treasonous crimes.
