    Default Manson follower denied request to die at home

    finaly she is gettin what's coming to her

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25692507/
    SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California's state parole board on Tuesday denied a request for compassionate release to Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins, who stabbed actress Sharon Tate to death nearly 40 years ago and is dying of brain cancer.

    The California Board of Parole released its unanimous decision hours after a 90-minute hearing, during which it heard impassioned pleas from both sides.

    Her doctors and officials at the women's prison in Corona made the request in March because of her deteriorating health. Atkins also has had her left leg amputated and is paralyzed on her right side, her husband and attorney, James Whitehouse, told a parole hearing.

    Whitehouse had argued that his wife was so debilitated that she could not even sit up in bed and told the parole board there was no longer a reason to keep her incarcerated.

    He said doctors have given her three months to live. Atkins, in a hospital near the Southern California prison where she was housed for nearly 40 years, did not attend Tuesday's hearing.

    Imprisoned for 37 years
    Atkins, two other women and Manson were convicted of the 1969 cult killings of seven people, including pregnant actress Sharon Tate. They were sentenced to death, but their terms were commuted to life sentences when the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily ruled the death penalty unconstitutional.

    Atkins, 60, has been imprisoned for 37 years, longer than any other female in state history.

    Atkins, Manson and two other cult members, Patricia Krenwinkel and Leslie Van Houten, maintained their innocence throughout the trial. Once convicted, the women confessed to the killings during the penalty phase.

    Atkins recounted stabbing
    On the stand then, Atkins recounted her role in stabbing Tate, who pleaded for the life of her unborn baby.

    "She kept begging and pleading and begging and pleading and I got sick of listening to it, so I stabbed her," Atkins said during her testimony.

    She claimed she was on LSD at the time, but did not apologize until a parole hearing years later.

    Atkins has been denied parole 12 times, corrections department spokesman Seth Unger said.

    Corrections Department spokeswoman Terry Thornton said Atkins' medical treatment and paying for prison guards to watch over her has cost state taxpayers more than $1.4 million since March.

    The corrections department no longer would pay for Atkins' medical care or be required to guard her around the clock if she was released to her husband.

    Manson, Krenwinkel and Van Houten remain in state prison
    I used to wonder why he was grinning all the time(Michael Ian Black talkin about EVH on VH1 I love the 80's) but then i realized the reason he's grinning is because he's Eddie F*#king Van Halen

    She atabbed a woman to death who was 8 1/2 months pregnant and then tasted her blood and used it to write PIG on the wall.

    Tough to muster up an ounce of compassion for her.

    She's gonna burn in the pit of fire when she leaves this world. Show compassion to her, how about Sharon Tate when she was pleading for her baby's life. She deserves to rot in jail until her last breath... and the same goes for Manson and the other two bitches.

    They could offer to end her suffering now. Feed her to the wild pigs or whatever...

    Part that catches me is that she has a husband (who is also her attorney). Geez, dude must've been pretty hard up if that's the best of his clients he could find to share conjugals with!

    Since March? Makes you wonder what the taxpayers have shelled out for her sorry ass for the past 37 years! They could have just given her and Manson & the followers death way back then and be done with them but no. She'll die in prison and so be it.

    She deserves the same compassion she showed to Sharon Tate.

    What ever happened to Tex Watson anyway? Did he get life as well? This whole thing still creeps me out, even after all these years.

    They did originally recieve death sentences, but then a few years later the CA Supreme Court struck down the death penalty in California, so everyone on death row had their sentences changed to life.
    I wholeheartedly agree with everone who said "show her as much compassion as she did Sharon Tate". The woman BEGGED Sadie Mae not to kill her unborn child, but she did. Stabbed her so many times she broke the knife. And tried to cut the fetus from the dead woman's womb. And tasted her blood. And wrote on the walls in her blood.
    And went out and did the same thing to someone else 2 nights later (the LaBianca murders).

    So, no, sorry, you stay in jail until they take you out in a body bag.
