Lies and Balderdash
Okay- AGNOSTIC MONK, a very smart person, asks--- "Ok, what were Barbara Hoyt's lies, exactly?
What were Linda Kasabians's lies, exactly?
What were Catherine Share's lies (during the penalty phase), exactly?"
This was in response to me stating that EVERY member of the Family lied on the stand at some point.
Since I only need to discuss ONE lie to prove my assertion, I will have at it.
In the main trial, Hoyt testified that the Family had meals at the back house and that at dinner time Charlie often spoke about "Helter Skelters". Of course, we know that while the concept of Helter Skelter was bandied about the Ranch, Charlie never had anything resembling regular meetings about it; this was just Hoyt following the Bug's instructions to bring up Helter Skelter in her testimony. In the Shorty Shea trial, in order to establish that she could have heard Shorty's screams, she claims they came from a tree area near where she was sleeping. Both Davis and Clem, who have now admitted the killing and have nothing to gain by lying, completely contradict her story.
I don't even have to begin to list Share's lies. Let's just take an easy one- she stated that Bobby Beausoleil did not kill Gary Hinman. Bobby fully admits that he did. She also accuses Leslie of being at Hinman and knows she wasn't. Share admitted her lies to Bug on some sick, fluffy talk show a few years back.
Linda,Linda Linda. You know her- the one who, at least according to FIVE TO DIE, when arrested swore that she'd never be a snitch. The one who drove to TWO nights of murder and did nothing, nothing to report them until she was caught. How many lies do you need from the girl that was only at the Ranch a couple of weeks? Do you believe she was told to HIDE the LaBianca wallet in a toilet? Uh huh. Do you believe she really went to the wrong apartment in Venice? Uh huh. How about an easy one? "Why did you leave your baby with these killers Linda while you left?" " I just knew, somehow, she would be all right."
