    She was very young, and I think she was probably trapped in a situation ( the manson familiy) where her leaving wasn't really possible.

    She confessed to stabbing a corpse, not a living person.

    Now seriously, do any of us really think she's a threat to society, now?

    And seriously, how long should somebody who was very nearly a child (at the time) be held in prison for stabbing a corpse?

    Consider what she was facing.

    The people egging her on had just MURDERED people.

    Who among us might not have done the same thing?

    After 40 years, I think she has served her time. Other than for the notoriety of her case, I think she would have been paroled years ago. She has had an exemplary record while in prison....time to put Manson hysteria aside and let her live out the rest of her life

    It might make a difference if she has rehabilitated herself. Has she educated herself by getting college degrees? Has she written anything condemning hers and Manson's actions?

    Most of the Manson family were throwaway kids. They were abused by him. It may be time(it's been over 35 years) to look at them and see if there is anything left to offer mercy to.

    So by your logic, Manson should be set free since he didnt even stab the corpse. I mean he wasnt even there.

    who amoung us would have done the same thing? Who amoung us would have anything to do with those nuts. SHE KNEW WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO DO AND WENT WITH THEM.

    Fuck her and let her rot!

    Who amoung us indeed.

    Don't blame it on someone else.. they were indeed HER actions

    And that "I was stabbing a corpse" thing.. absolute rubbish

    She is a murderer... 1st degree... IMHO no first degree murderer should ever be let out of prison if they somehow evade the death penalty...

    I don't care if she were 100 years old and could not lift a postage stamp...

    I don't think she would be a threat to society, however I do believe a LIFE sentence should be that. Otherwise call it "an indefinite one"
