The murderous crimes of the Manson family cult left a stain on American history. These folks don’t deserve parole. Their crimes were so horrific, they were lucky to escape the death penalty.
FOX News reports:
Charles Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel denied parole in California
Parole was denied Thursday for convicted killer Patricia Krenwinkel — a follower of cult leader Charles Manson — after officials investigated whether battered women’s syndrome affected her state of mind at the time of the notorious murders nearly five decades ago.
Krenwinkel, 69, was previously denied parole 13 times for the 1969 slayings of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four other people.
The next night, she helped kill grocer Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary in what prosecutors say was an attempt by Manson to ignite a race war.
Parole commissioners postponed the latest parole hearing in December while officials investigated whether Krenwinkel suffered from battered women’s syndrome.
They denied her parole for five more years after resuming the hearing at the California Institution for Women east of Los Angeles, where Krenwinkel is incarcerated.
The board did not immediately release the reason for its recommendation.
Krenwinkel is the longest serving female inmate in California.
Tough luck for her. Actions have consequences.
