Free Charlie!

June 6th, 2009 by The Doctor

Charles Maddox Manson will almost certainly die in prison. In his mind however, he is already free.

A ready-made boogie-man for the establishment to wave at the straights and scare them enough to forget that it wasn’t the Manson Family who ordered the dropping of napalm on Vietmanese civilians. The summer of love was pretty much over, when Charlie was released from prison and headed into San Francisco. Lots of dissaffected middle-class runaways gathered around the older Manson, dropping acid and absorbing his bogus free-love guru bullshit. After driving an old bus out to the old Spahn movie ranch, they set up a commune and things slowly got weirder and weirder, culminating in the murders at the Polanski/Tate house and the next night at the LaBianca home.

During the trial, one of Charlie’s girls Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme pulled a .45 automatic and tried to shoot the President Gerald Ford. A better cult follower than assassin she forgot to put a round in the chamber and was arrested by the secret service before she could get a shot off. D’oh!
