Note To California
Susan Atkins committed horrific acts before most of us were even born . Many people offer the excuse that she was under the mind control of Charles M. Manson and LSD , but I am not going to offer such justification . She participated in one of the most horrifying crime and murder sprees of modern times and admitted to ending the lives of Sharon Tate and her unborn child . She was justifiably sentenced to spend her remaining days safely locked away from the positive human experience . She was denied parole for the 17th time despite being a case in rehabilitation and being paralyzed by malignant brain cancer . By being denied such release , she was determined to be a threat to human life . In my estimation , the only reason why she was denied such release is because of the notoriety of the crimes - if the unrepentant Lockerbie bomber should be released than an exemplary case such as Susan Atkins must be , if only for the fact that she has served over 40 years in prison and lookout and getaway driver Linda Kasabian got off scott free .
California is drowning in debt and has spent 1.2 million dollars in the last year alone on Susan's care . Her husband is a prominent attorney and would gladly foot the bill for her care if she was released , and as sick as she is now , he could be saving California's taxpayers as much as $300 000 per month .
I am not in favour of referring to this as "compassionate" release where it relates to the now Mrs. Whitehouse , but for the California people .
She has been given a death sentence , and now it's time for her family to pay for the bullet.
