Exclamation Manson Follower Leslie Van Houten Granted Parole

Manson Family Member Leslie Van Houten Granted Parole
Critics Demand California Governor Reverse the Decision

by Nancy Dillon and Christopher Brennan, NY Daily News
September 7, 2017

A member of cult leader Charles Manson's infamous "family" has been granted parole and Sharon Tate's sister is already working to overturn it.

Leslie Van Houten, 68, was approved for parole Wednesday, with the board saying she served her time for the horrific murders of Leno and Rosemary La Bianca in 1969.

California Gov. Jerry Brown now has 120 days to affirm, reverse or take no action against the move to end her life sentence. Brown denied her parole last year, despite the panel saying she's been a model prisoner.

Van Houten was 19-years-old when she and other "Manson Family" members killed the La Biancas, the night after other followers of the cult's creepy leader slaughtered pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four of her friends.

Tate's sister Debra attended the Wednesday hearing and walked away unimpressed.

She couldn't even quote a definition of remorse. That is something she should know like the back of her hand by now, Tate told the Daily News.

She called the Manson Family America's first domestic terrorists.

Their intentions were to start a race war. That's very pertinent at this point in our history. It's a very volatile time right now. We need to focus on what we all share. People like this, we can't afford to have them out in our free society, Tate said.

She said her sister and the others killed deserve better.

The victims were all good people. They were all better people than this one, and they don't get a parole or release or get to be with their friends and family again, she said.

Tate hopes others will voice their opposition to Gov. Brown directly or sign her petition at

Manson, 82 who suffered a health scare earlier this year remains confined in Corcoran State Prison.

Wow! This is a surprise. She has been denied parole continuously for years. I wonder if the parole will be overturned? She was fortunate to scoot by the death penalty as the death penalty was soon done away with just after her conviction. She will not be able to live out her life openly . Everybody(at least those over 50) knows who she is. What she and her "family" did was horrific and in my opinion she should stay in prison. Sure, she was very young and naive but the brutalness of her crime defies age. If they let her out will the other Manson murderers follow? I am so against this ruling. No No No!

She shouldn't even be granted parole.
I love John Larroquette.

And will always like Harry Anderson too.

"Ciao, baby!" - John Larroquette as Dan Fielding

Antenna TV, MeTV, Decades, Laff, and Cozi TV, please add Dave's World and The John Larroquette Show to your lineups. Thank you.

PLEASE release a complete series boxset of The John Larroquette Show (and the final season of Dave's World). Thanks.

Goodnight, sweet prince. Harry Anderson 1952-2018

Each time I think about what these brutes did to such innocent people, I say, NO WAY should she get parole. I don't care if she was "so young" when this happened. No reward for bad behavior. Her family says she has no remorse. Let her rot in prison.

This is exactly why I am so strongly in favor of the death penalty. Liberals say as a ruse, "Give them life without parole. What could be wrong with that?" Then the instant they get life without parole liberals start campaigning for parole. Liberals are ruining the United States with the help of the media, brainwashing the American public.
