http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/14/us/manson-family-leslie-van-houten-possible-parole/ I'm sure some of you will jump on me for this, but when a murderer is finally recommended for parole, well, that sure is one more reason for the death penalty. I know this could only happen in California, the land of fruits, nuts and flakes! And, yes I know they don't refer to Cali as the "left coast" for no reason? But when a parole board can recommend sone one as evil as a Manson family follower for parole based on her saying all the right things following 40 years of 'clean' behavior; there is something wrong with the system. Life sentences were made to be changed as society changes, and for that reason, alone, the death penalty serves society and the memories of victims well! So go ahead and present your views. But, no name calling please!!!
