DISCLAIMER I READ THIS BOOK UNDER THE CONSTANT INFLUENCE OF THE WHITE ALBUM BY THE BEATLES Hello Charlie You crazy F expletive has been deleted because for some crazy reason I’ve got a bunch of kids following my reviews R”’How are you going to get the establishment You can’t sing to them I tried that I tried to save them but they wouldn’t listen Now we got to destroy them”’ Charlie Manson to a friend in the summer of 1969The number of people killed by the Manson family in the 1960s and 1970s could be as many as 35 There are still bodies missing and murders that fit the profile of The Family that were never proven for lack of evidence For the prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi the goal was to get Charlie Manson along with his most fervent followers out of circulation for a long long time From moment one he felt the strain of making a misstep that would give the judge or jury reasonable doubt The most famous of these murders were the five people killed in what is referred to as The Tate Murders The murder case was named for the wife of famed director Roman Polanski Sharon Tate was not only brutally murdered but was also eight months pregnant It changes the score right When you ruthlessly kill a pregnant woman it isn’t just murder any ; it is a heinous crime against humanity Bugliosi who wrote this book does a wonderful job laying out the evidence and also explaining our legal system pitfalls The crimes themselves though interesting in a ghoulish shiver inducing way are in a sense immaterial when compared to the feral genius of Charlie Manson He wasn’t book smart but he had his own brilliant way of discovering the weaknesses of most people he met and turning them into brainwashed zombie followers He was a career inmate He purposely committed crimes with the highest federal punishment for instance like stealing the US Mail which has mandatory sentencing much higher than say stealing cars to make sure he stayed in jail longer When he was released from the prison for the last time he begged the warden to let him stay He understood prison but he couldn’t understand the real world It only makes sense that he would create his own reality ”I may have implied on several occasions to several different people that I may have been Jesus Christ but I haven’t decided yet what I am or who I am” Most of the people he brought into The Family were between the ages of 17 to 27 with a heavy emphasis on 17 He had a man by the name of Paul Watkins who was a good looking lad who would hang around areas where high school girls would be and recruit them into The Family There was no end of young women from middle class families who had runaway from their families or wanted to Manson offered them a haven in the desert Paul Watkins the pretty boy girl recruiter Charlie would say “Paul I’m horny Go get me a new girl” and Paul would go get oneHe would interview them discovering that generally they had Daddy issues and exploit their resentments against their parents All he was offering was freedom and free love and plenty of drugs but in reality he was breaking them down so that they would do what he wanted without uestion He would first have sex with them Then have them have sex with a woman Don’t be uptight girl It is all part of being free Then they would over time have sex with all the men in the group He would organize orgies in which they had to participate or face excommunication from the group By this time he had shattered the pillar of their moral compass and now had fresh clay to build them back up into who he needed them to be The transformation from who they were to who he made them was truly disheartening and frightening to witness The Manson girls look just like the girls we all went to highschool with So the uestion is how did he turn them into killersThese girls came from very sheltered existences They were angry at their parents for a whole host of reasons but probably the unifying theme was that they didn’t want to be told what to do Manson offered a delusional freedom that wasn’t free at all but actually shackled them to him and his demented visions of chaos One of the girls said “I’ve finally reached the point where I can kill my parents”Manson became completely enad with The White Album by The Beatles He thought The Beatles were giving him specific instructions of what had to go down Helter Skelter which is the name of one of the songs on the album became the defining words of the new world he hoped to create When he sent his minions out to kill the people at the Tate residency he was hoping to start a war He wanted to leave evidence that black people were killing white people and then they would kill each other The Black connections they were hoping to make were pathetically attempted and at no time did the police think the Black Panthers or some other armed black resistance were behind the murders The only whites who were going to survive this racial war were those living in the desert with Charlie Manson How do you get people to believe this stuff”Charlie was always preaching love Charlie had no idea what love was Charlie was so far from love it wasn’t even funny Death is Charlie’s trip It really is”He had his own agenda to get even with everyone He wanted to instill fear He wanted to destroy the world He wanted people to pay for the shambles of his own life People have made comparisons between the mesmerizing abilities of Adolf Hitler and Charlie Manson They were both small men with large ideas about who they should be They could both convince people to do things that any rational person should reject Neither one of them respected life I usually don’t like comparisons to Hitler because he is often evoked in modern politics erroneously but there are certainly some aspects about their characters and their power over people that makes the comparisons unfortunately very valid At times Manson had hundreds of followers a small army of potential assassins All he had to do was say the word They all wanted to make Charlie happy and underlying all the love they felt for him was a real fear of the conseuences of disappointing him It is scary to think about how easily Manson gained control of these young people I’m sure there were people who spent five minutes in his presence who started looking for the nearest exit but his ability to convince people of his own importance and power is fortunately a very unusual trait among madmen Could another Manson come along Absolutely Will they find followers Absolutely This book was thoughtful and well researched and certainly proved to be a page turner for me sometimes deep into the heart of darkness If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a

Ury the cold blooded Tate LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of. It was so uiet one of the killers would later say you could almost hear the sound of ice rattling in cocktail shakers in the homes way down in the canyonThe canyons above Hollywood and Beverly Hills play tricks with sounds  A noise clearly audible a mile away may be indistinguishable at a few hundred feetIt was hot that nightBefore the sun rose on August 9 1969 in Bel Air at 10050 Cielo Drive five people lay horrifically and brutally slain  Some would say that since one of the victims was in the final stages of pregnancy  that the actual count was six  What was not in doubt was that 10050 Cielo Drive looked like a human slaughterhouse  On the front door written in the blood of one of the victims later determined to be that of Sharon Tate was the word “Pig”  The Los Angeles Police Department found no evidence of sexual molestation or mutilation There were no indications of ransacking or robbery  No apparent motive could be foundThe following night of August 101969 two victims were found at 3301 Waverly Drive both brutally slaughtered  Writing in blood appeared in three places; on the living room wall were the words “Death to Pigs” to the left of the front door was the single word “Rise” and on the refrigerator were the two words “Healter Skelter” the first of which was clearly misspelled  No obvious motive presented itself to detectivesThere had been a previous single victim of a similar vicious attack on July 31 1969 on 964 Old Topanga Road in Malibu  One Gary Hinman a thirty four year old music teacher had been found stabbed to death  On the wall in the living room not far from Hinman’s body were the words “Political Piggy” printed in the victim’s blood  In this case officers from the Los Angeles Sheriff's Office  had a suspect in custody  One Bobby Beausoleil a young hippie musician had been caught driving a car belonging to Hinman with blood on his shirt and trousers  Since this arrest had occurred on August 61969 he was in custody during the perpetration of the other two crimes however it was possible that he had not acted alone  He had been living at an old movie ranch with a bunch of other hippies  Their leader a guy named Charlie had apparently convinced them all that he was Jesus Christ Despite the obvious similarities in these crimes it would be months before the LAPD acknowledged there was a connectionOn November 18 1969 Vincent Bugliosi age thirty five was handed the job of prosecuting the perpetrators of  the slayings at Cielo and Waverly DriveDuring the course of his investigation and preparation for the trial  Vincent Bugliosi came to believe that Charles Manson was as responsible for the killings as the people who had actually done the slaying  In fact Bugliosi was convinced that the only reason the killings had happened at all was because Manson had commanded it Now he had to prove itAmong the many barriers that Bugliosi had to overcome in order for justice to be served wereVery little tangible evidence had been recovered from the crime scenesStatements made by “family” members who were involved in the slaying had to be handled with tender gloves due to Aranda which basically says that the prosecution may not admit into evidence any statement made by a defendant that would indict a co defendant  Therefore any intelligence garnered through these means had to be independently corroborated in some other way before it could be introduced into evidence The bumblings mishandling lack of follow up and general apathy of the LAPDAbsence of an obvious believable motive  Bugliosi was certain he knew what it was but who was going to believe that Manson thought the Beatles were talking specifically to him through the lyrics of their White Album  or that Helter Skelter was in essence the time when the the black people would rise up in rage against the whites and that he Manson was the catalyst of that eventLack of sleep and exhaustion  There was simply not enough time to achieve everything that had to be doneA widespread pervasive atmosphere of fear that enveloped everyone even remotely connected to this case Not as it turned out entirely unfoundedWitnesses people of interest and even released suspects who fled LA and could either not be located or proved difficult to have returnedEven though Charles Manson did not get his own hands dirty Bugliosi still needed to prove that the actual killers had acted on his command  The outrageous courtroom antics of Manson his “family” and his attorney all aimed at disrupting proceedings and ultimately causing a mistrial Lest we forget the victimsSharon TateHer unborn yet fully formed babyJay SebringVoytek FrykowskiAbigail FolgerSteve ParentLeno LaBiancaRosemary LaBiancaGary HinmanThe bulk of this book is all about the investigation and preparation for the trials of Charles Manson and his family as well as the trials themselves  As such it is full of detail and as repetitious as the circumstances dictate  Even though I thought that I possessed a good understanding of this crime prior to reading this I was wrong  My mind is still swimming with all the things that I either misunderstood or had no knowledge of at all  I am glad therefore that the record has been set straight I have avoided going into the grizzly details of these horrific crimes but be forewarned that the book makes no such claim  The brutality visited upon every victim is laid out before you in graphic detail Sadly the world lost Vincent Bugliosi in June of last year  May he forever rest in peace4  horror and contrarily respect filled stars
