When mayhem ensued, Krenwinkel dragged coffee heiress Abigail Folger from her bedroom to the living room, fought with her, and stabbed her.When Folger tried to escape following the first round of stabbing, Patricia was said to have chased Folger as she ran outside screaming.

There are plenty of people who have served their time and paid the price for their crimes and deserve to be paroled.

She ain't remotely close to one of them as she has demonstrated only crocodile tears of remorse and not contrition for what she did or the brutality with which she did it. Of COURSE she wouldn't kill again if she was released. If she truly appeared mentally ill or sociopathic, she wouldn't even be granted a hearing.

On one hand, it's highly unlikely this woman will ever harm anyone again & there are people who've committed equally horrendous crimes & spent far less time in prison. However, she is very well spoken and displays a lot of empathy. where their judicial systems always seem to put the "rights" of the perpetrators above the rights of the victims they've killed and the lives of the families they have destroyed forever. I think author and Manson prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi was brilliant. R45, what did she do that was more vicious than the others? Now everyone is so fucking gray and old and close to death! Krenwinkel was the one who ran down and stabbed Abigail Folger multiple times.

Obvioulsy, she didn't receive parole, and she never will forever being associated with Manson. Susan Atkins is the one that died a few years ago, right? And everyone from the 60s or 70s were just in their 40s, tops. I NEVER could imagine all the wild youths of the 60s getting so elderly.

Assault weapons prohibited under our laws cannot be altered in any way to make their sale or possession legal in Massachusetts.

have the authority to make this determination; it was litigated by the pro-gun group GOAL some 12 ago. The MA AG goes on to reassure gun buyers who purchased “copy” or “duplicate” “assault rifles” that she’s not coming for their guns. We recognize that most residents who purchased these guns in the past believed they were doing so legally, so this directive will not apply to possession of guns purchased before Wednesday.

But gun manufacturers have taken it upon themselves to define what a “copy” or “duplicate” weapon is.

They market “state compliant” copycat versions of their assault weapons to Massachusetts buyers.

They also then repeatedly stabbed her.[quote]During a 2004 parole hearing, when asked who she would place at the top of the list of people she has harmed, Patricia Krenwinkel responded, "Myself." She was denied parole following that hearing because, according to the panel, Krenwinkel still posed an "unacceptable risk to public safety". Even if you don't believe in the death penalty, she ought not ever be paroled. The "Don't Mess With The Elites" (DMWIT) troll is posting every other message in this thread. There are cases in which I believe people have paid their debt to society, and should be let out, absolutely. This isn't a situation where a 20 something year old girl who had never drank before, got too buzzed at a beach bonfire with her friends, drove home drunk, and killed a family of four with her car. The irony is that her life would be far more difficult on the outside as she's become institutionalized.

This isn't some college kid in the sixties who was dealing pot, and got busted with 5 kilos of marijuana. One moment in time doesn't define a person for the rest of their lives. Everything is done for her, she has free board, food, health care, dental care, etc She has her friends and a routine to which she is accustomed.

After Manson and Watson tied up the couple, Manson left, giving orders to Van Houten and Krenwinkel to join Watson and kill the La Biancas.
