On Wednesday, a California parole board rejected the parole for mass murderer Charles Manson of ‘Helter Skelter’ fame. Manson did not attend the hearing. The state authorities decided that Manson was too great a danger to be released. Debra Tate, the sister of murdered actress Sharon Tate was again denied the chance to lock eyes with the man convicted of sending out his minions on murder campaigns. Debra had told the media earlier, “I want to lock eyes with him and walk them through everything done to each and every one of my friends blow by blow.” But she never got the chance.

As Juan Flynn, a Spahn Ranch worker who had been associated with Manson and his notorious cult known as the Family once told the media, “Charles Manson got away with everything. People will say, ‘He’s in jail.’ But Charlie is exactly where he wants to be.”

Deputy District Attorney Patrick Sequeira who argued against Manson’s release said, “At his age, I think he doesn’t care … He would be lost if he got out. He’s completely institutionalized.”


Manson, held at the Corcoran State Prison in Central California had been understood most by Juan Flynn who knew “Charlie is exactly where he wants to be.”

Charles Manson is convicted of conspiring mass murders under his command of an army of cult followers. The murders, which took place in the 60s were apparently caused to precipitate a racial apocalypse that would leave Manson and his cult, the Family, in control of the society. The vision was to operate from an imaginary underground city below Death Valley boosted by drugs and hallucinogens. Manson apparently got inspired by the Beatles song ‘Helter Skelter’ and found secret codes and visions in it.

Born to an unmarried 16-year old Kathleen Maddox, Manson was first named ‘no-name Maddox.” His mother later married a laborer William Manson whose last name was taken by the boy. The first two sentences of his family background section at the National Training School for Boys, Washington D.C. mention: “Father: unknown. He is alleged to have been a colored cook by the name of Scott, with whom the boy’s mother had been promiscuous at the time of pregnancy.”

By March, 1967, Charles Manson had already spent most of his growing years in prison or correctional institutions. The rest of the time he was either managing along by committing petty crimes or being passed around from one shelter to another. When he was sent to the National Training School for Boys in 1951, after being caught for federal crimes at the age of 14, despite an IQ of 121 and four years of schooling, he was still illiterate.

Manson who managed most of his life either inside prisons or by pimping, burglaries, or auto theft, later established himself as a cult guru in the 60’s and established the Family. He gathered a large number of utterly devoted followers ready to kill on his words, and who did kill time and again because Manson wished so.
