So what did we learn from all of that?
Quite a lot of stuff you don't see elsewhere.
Clem has a wife and a kid.
Hoyt likely fled on her own.
He copped a plea for Ouisch.
And, by just being straightforward and a "nice boy", as well as selling out the group (and ultimately blaming Charlie like the Man wanted) he got out.
Never to be heard from again.
Steve Grogan, Carry On. Thanks for a special week!
Friday, October 28, 2005
My biggest complaint with Tex isn't that he slaughtered nine complete strangers- it' s that he blames an ex-con loser named Manson for what he did.
My biggest complaint with Sadie isn't that she slaughtered a pregnant lady and danced in her blood- it's that she blames Charlie while thanking Jesus who she once thought were one and the same.
Why I respect Bobby Beausoleil is because he does NOT blame Charlie for Hinman- even though if Charlie had not swung his sword like a freaking retard Gary never would have almost lost an ear and this shit wouldn't have happened.
So I wondered where Clem stood. This excerpt from 1978 Parole Hearing (thanks yet again to "Unstoppable') confirms that Clem pussied out and blamed the short guru.
INMATE GROGAN: First, it was 10 years ago. I’m a completely different person to this point. I was young, 16 years old, you know. I was vulnerable to any hustler that would want to hustle me, really, because of my lack of street experience, my lack of just being out in the world, period. I probably would have gone for anything hook, line, and sinker, any salesman or hustler that wanted to hustle me, because they caught me at that age, that point of vulnerability. I was manipulated very easily. My defenses for what he had for me were, you know, almost nonexistent. It was two years after I was already incarcerated that I realized the games that he had run on me, psychological games. It was over my head, out of my awareness. It was just, you know – and now that I have been around hustlers and all types of people in the criminal line of existence there is no way I could let anybody hustle me into anything, into believing a certain philosophy.
HEARING REPRESENTATIVE VINEYARD: Well, according to the most recent report, staff is still describing you in terms of your passivity and your dependency. Whether or not this is still at that same degree it was 10 years ago can be debated, and probably isn’t, as you say. But whether or not it has reached a place – what could you offer as a demonstration of the fact that you have become your own man in the past 10 years that this kind of influence couldn’t be exerted over you again?
INMATE GROGAN: Well, I think the records state that if I’m so dependent as they suggested, I would most likely be in one of these gangs or cliques and my dependency would be on the group itself. But overt these years I haven’t joined any cliques or have any desire to join any cliques.
MS. SAMUELSON: There is a letter in fact in the file to indicate that there was a reference that he was a member of one of the white groups, and that was corrected to show that there is no such affiliation. That’s also in the file. I’m sorry; I just wanted to bring that up.
INMATE GROGAN: The fact that – I think my record states that I’m more or less a loner. It’s like I don’t hang around with a lot of groups of people. I have managed to complete a trade by myself with no help from nobody. I managed to come to the point from a fair guitar player to take off the state competition in the music field. And that was – nobody helped me do that. That was all my own effort. I managed to put together a nice portfolio of artwork. I managed to become fairly versatile with art at this point.
I wondered REALLY why Shorty had to go. Sure, he was cramping Charlie's style and raging on and on to get the Family chucked off by George. But George was tapping the Squeaky vein, he wasn't listening to Shea. So why risk shit by killing Shorty and bringing him to Now? This is Clem's version (thanks Unstoppable) from 1978. Seems to me hitting on the women was a pretty realistice reason...not.
INMATE GROGAN: Well, it was like a growing hostility. They didn’t like him. Charlie didn’t like him because he was – he was always drinking, and he thought he was a slob. He was, you know – was always talking about messing with the girls that were there. And it was like, you know – it was kind of subtle at first, the way, you know, he voiced his dislike and disapproval of the man. Like he would bring it up in conversation at dinner when we all sat around and ate. Over a period it grew worse until – and then we were raided by the police where everything we had was taken, that we had bought legitimately. All our tools and cars and all the possessions that we had accumulated. And plus the children were taken, too. Everybody was arrested on the ranch. In fact the only person left was George Spahn, and he was blind. And they had Carl’s brother come in and watch him so he would have someone to take care of him.
PRESIDING MEMBER BROWN: Why were you arrested?
INMATE GROGAN: I was under the – because Mr. Shea had told the police that we had a stolen car ring. Okay? Well, we spent three days in jail, and we were released. And we didn’t get back none of our property. The pink slips were confiscated – along with our property – to four or five dune buggies that we couldn’t get back from them: the children put into foster homes. And what it really did is made everybody really upset at this guy, because I was led to believe that he was doing it to get us evicted off the ranch, to get us thrown off the ranch. And that was the only place we had to stay at the time. And it was through his actions that he caused us this trouble. I think it’s – you know – excuse me. It goes – you know, it goes – it’s kind of hard for me to talk about this because there are a lot of emotions that I have experienced, guilt and stuff, you know, what I did. But there was, you know, a feeling almost of hatred toward the guy because of what he made us go through, the children and stuff. Like we had held the children in really almost the highest position. They were home delivered and breast fed. It was like – our feeling for the children was really the highest thing we felt. This was mostly the whole reason we was all together, to put the children in a good environment, free from social indoctrinations and stuff, try to raise them as natural as we could. And then to have someone come along and form a false story and have them put in foster homes, it was really a blow to the women and men that were at the place at the time.

BUG talked about Clem's indecent exposure charge ... whatever. This is Grogan's version- from the 1978 hearing that did not release him. I don't buy it but it is as good a story as any. I've never seen this much info on it before. Enjoy. (transcribed by "Unstoppable')
The incident in
INMATE GROGAN: I was coming back from the Spahn Ranch where I was working before and I was going to my parents’ house. This happened on the same block as my parents’ house. I came back and I wanted to get some money because I had a traffic ticket that I had to pay off. My brother was living there and he offered to pay the traffic ticket. So there was nobody home. As I was leaving there was some neighborhood kids that were on the lawn and I was playing with them and the pants I was wearing had the crotch ripped out of them from riding on the horses and things at the ranch. So when I was playing with the kids on the lawn I guess one of the mothers had viewed it from one of the windows and had called the police thinking that I was exposing myself to their children. As a result of that, I was arrested.
MR. FOLEY: In fact, you were referred to a hospital for a period of time?
INMATE GROGAN: Yes. They referred it to, I think, it was
MR. FOLEY: Also, one other thing crossed my mind. This ranch that you were living on, the Spahn Ranch, were you residing there prior to Charles Manson’s arrival on the ranch?
INMATE GROGAN: I was there when I was about 15 years old and lived in the back. They had a back ranch-house that I lived in and I worked odd jobs, guiding tours for writers and cleaning up the ranch and stuff. They’d give me food and clothing. The rent was free. It wasn’t really nothing to pay for rent. It was just an old shack. It had no electricity or hot water or anything. Just a place to rest.
MR. FOLEY: The next entry on your record is the auto theft, grand theft auto. Could you explain that? That’s in December of 1969.
INMATE GROGAN: I recall being arrested for grand theft auto because I had rented a truck. It was a half-ton truck, I think. I took it to the desert and it got stuck in the desert. At that time I was arrested by

Okay this is all about Hoyt (the same Babara that that Manson and the 60s group leader had never heard of LOL). You should be familiar with her. If not go here. Now what always bothered me about this was that BUG turns this into a big freaking deal in his novel. Like they tried to kill her and Ruth (Ouisch) got away with it all. Except- why did she leave to go to Hawaii in the first place? Why did Ruth never even get arraigned? And if this was attempted murder, like BUG argues, then why only charge misdemeanors? Clem's version of events actually makes REAL SENSE. See if you agree. (Thanks again Unstoppable. From the 1981 hearing)
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: About this incident helping somebody to go to
INMATE GROGAN: What happened in that incident, one girl named Barbara Hoyt was scheduled to testify in the Charles Manson trial. She came to the ranch where I was living at the time in
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: This is when you were on bail?
INMATE GROGAN: Right. And indicated to the girls and that came to me through hearsay from the girls that she didn’t want to testify that she wanted to, you know, go someplace and hide till the trial was over. So, I guess the girls suggested that they go to
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: On a stolen credit card or something?
INMATE GROGAN: I don’t know how they got it. I think the friend bought it on a credit card, his personal credit card. I think. I’m not sure.
Anyways, they secured the means of going to
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: As a conspiracy?
INMATE GROGAN: Yeah. And can I add something to that?
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Yes.
INMATE GROGAN: We were planning to take the case to trial because the evidence was really shaky on it. There was no evidence, as far as my participation was concerned, but due to the fact I was already in for murder trial, I thought it be best interest to go in with Ruth Moorehouse. Ruth Moorehouse, she was pregnant at the time.
So we all agreed those were charged with conspiracy plead nolo contendere to a misdemeanor, if they would let her out on her own recognizance to have her child in the streets. Because we didn’t want her to have her child in the county jail and have it taken from her at the early part of delivery. So the District Attorney agreed that would be acceptable to him, and that’s how the disposition was handled.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: And then later on you were convicted of the murder?
INMATE GROGAN: Right.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Right. I’d like to thank you very much for providing that information. I know it’s pretty well covered in the pages I mentioned, pages 32 to 41 in the hearing of 1979.

Did you know that Clem was married? And had a son? The son would be 27 today. Son of Scramblehead? Jesus sounds like an AIP exploitation film. Anyway, this is from 1981 and Clem is asked whether he still accepts Charlie as his personal savior. This is his final answer. Thanks again to "Unstoppable"- now get reading and learning.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: At a certain point after you’ve gotten married, your wife needed to change her unlisted phone number and indication because of threats from Manson family. Would you elaborate upon that, because this was sometime after you were incarcerated? Charlie Manson was incarcerated. Who was the threat coming from? What was it all about?
INMATE GROGAN: Well, after couple years being in prison, after reflecting clear in my head, all the cobwebs, what I call the drug residue, I just started thinking. I came to myself. Man, I started thinking, well, what am I doing with these people? Man, why am I still even letting them write to me?
So cut them loose. In the meantime, I had met, you know, met my wife and we visited over a year. I visited with her for a year because I wanted to see where she was at in her head, as far as for a wife, good wife, my children. It was more like a testing period. I let her go through to see if she would stick by me. Of course, there was no guarantee of that. It seemed that after a year of going through these hardships of prison life, visiting, coming back and seeing you, on the basis that she had left, you know, call it quits or she would stick by me.
So consequently after a year and a half, I decided we should get married. And some of the girls that were involved in Charlie’s in
These are not quotes, just summations of the feelings. So I told her to change her address, move out of there. I wondered how they know where she lived.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Pardon?
INMATE GROGAN: I was wondering how they know where she lived.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: At the time you got married, were you prepared as far as the consequences that that might be the reaction from the people that were still out?
INMATE GROGAN: Yeah. It was – I had those reactions to them during that relationship. We had told her, you know, relatively the same thing, leave me alone. You have no business with me, and I kind of half ass respected that from those people. Because in their eyes, here I am in the past involved. I am in effect getting out of the group. To them there’s no getting out. Because it’s – it’s kind of difficult to explain, I guess, the attachment they had to each person that was involved with them over the years and they didn’t want to let go of it.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Okay. Maybe –
INMATE GROGAN: It’s like we’re supposed to be bonded together for life, you know, for eternity. Almost to a, like a vow, you know, to that. That was their viewpoint of my involvement with them and I didn’t see it that way. And they was highly upset that I would leave them and just told them to get the heck away.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: I think you indicated that at the time of the killing, correct me if I’m incorrect, that Manson said to mutilate the body and that you surmised that it was a means of bringing the group more under his control, because the group was beginning to shift away from him; is that correct?
INMATE GROGAN: Yeah. At the time – it wasn’t really at the time of the murders. It was after the murder, sometime after. The murder that he told me that, you know, circulate that story if anybody asks.
MR. ROBINSON: Just for clarification, he didn’t tell you to mutilate the body?
INMATE GORGAN: He told me to say that we had mutilated the body.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Okay. Of the people that were involved in the Manson family, do other people have – at the time that the incident took place, people were very close to one another in terms of the psychodrawn path? At this point is there a spread in terms of individuals?
INMATE GROGAN: Yes. There’s a – there’s a –
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Where people are at in terms of their relationship with Manson or –
INMATE GROGAN: I was the only one that was, you know, saying – taking a good look at where they’re at. It took me a couple years because oriented myself in prison and then still work sifting though the distortion of the thinking I had. But, yeah, I think they were desperate to hold what they had, what little clique of a group they had left.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Are some of them still pretty close to him in terms to the extent that you can be?
INMATE GROGAN: My contact with them over the years has been nill. I imagine probably couple of the girls are still with them, but that’s about it as far as I’m concerned.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Okay. I don’t have any other questions.

This is from his October 20, 1981 Parole Hearing. In it he gives the most detailed description of Shorty's murder I have heard. It contradicts things that Hoyt has said- but I never believed her anyway. Thanks to "Unstoppable " for the transcription. It is good reading.
INMATE GROGAN: Okay, I’ll start with the report that you read is pretty accurate insomuch as it describes everything that happened.
Few inconsistencies in the sense that, if I understood right, you said we enticed the victim to the car. I don’t know if it was understood how I explained it last time that he was taking us down to an auto mechanic place to change some auto parts in. So actually we were like hitching a ride with him.
I don’t know – is enticing the same thing?
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Well, no, not exactly.
MR. ROBINSON: Well, let me put it to you this way: It begins for you, you’re waking up in the morning, right? If you could start at it from that point and just sort of discuss it. I know you discussed it so many times.
INMATE GROGAN: Well, that morning I was awakened by Charles Manson and still, you know, half asleep, told me to get to the car and handed me like a pipe wrench. Told me to hit Shorty in the back of the head as soon as
At that point
I still haven’t got over, you know, the emotional part. You know, so sometimes it’s kind of hard to, you know, overcome the atrocity that I did.
BOARD MEMBER TONG: Would you like some water?
INMATE GROGAN: Yeah, if I could.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: So Charles Manson was in the back seat with you?
INMATE GROGAN: No. No one was in the back seat.
INMATE GROGAN: Thank you.
INMATE GROGAN: I was sitting behind the driver.
MR. ROBINSON: In the back seat.
INMATE GROGAN: Then we pulled off the road.
In the meantime, I was supposed to hit this guy in the back of the head. And like I never, you know, hit anybody or hurt anybody like that before, and it was hard, you know. I kept hesitating in my mind, you know, looking at the cars on the highway hoping maybe cause of traffic I wouldn’t have to hit him because it was just 10 feet off the lane.
MR. ROBINSON: Take your time.
INMATE GROGAN: Well, the blow stunned him but it didn’t knock him out. And he jumped to the passenger side of the seat. That was, the car door was already open and exited through there.
MR. ROBINSON: Steve, let me interrupt you. One of the things that was read in the statement was that the blow knocked him out of the vehicle. I remember that was discussed last year, and as you just said, he left the vehicle after being hit, right? He went out which side?
INMATE GROGAN: Right side.
MR. ROBINSON: The passenger side, all right.
INMATE GROGAN: The blow knocked him forward so he hit the steering wheel and surprised him and jumped out the side and I had to reach over the seat and get in the driver’s seat to stop the car, because the way it was parked there was an embankment, you know, like cul de sac ditch. And the car ran – drove into the ditch. So, meantime I’m jumping over the seat trying to put the brakes on, put the car in gear, stop the motor, he had already been stabbed.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Who did that?
INMATE GROGAN: I imagine
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: They were in a different car?
INMATE GROGAN: I actually didn’t even see a car drive up. I just noticed to my right he came up. He might have gone through some back trails and in time – he must have been in another car.
HEARING REPRESENTATIVE EPPERLY: Was it
INMATE GROGAN: Right. And I came upon the victim in a semi unconscious state. And I was handed a knife and told to stab him, and I stabbed him twice in the chest. And some others were told the same.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Did Manson stab him too?
INMATE GROGAN: I don’t know. He might have slashed him. I don’t recall if he stabbed him.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: So you stabbed him and
INMATE GROGAN: I think Bruce might have stabbed him in the arm.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: Then what happened?
INMATE GROGAN: Well, at that point, couple minutes after that he was dead and I was told to take him, drag him into some bushes that were further from the highway, cover him up till night, come back at night and bury him. And the others left so I came back at night and buried him.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: You came back yourself and buried him? How deep was the grave?
INMATE GROGAN: It was pretty shallow. It was just enough to cover his body. But in reference to the deep grave, over the years it was seven years or eight years and there had been rainstorms and mud slides in that area. And I think that’s what – they had trouble finding him when I initially drew a map. I had to go down with them, escort, and show them the direct vicinity. I couldn’t even remember the exact spot because, you know, landscape had changed.
PRESIDING MEMBER ROOS: How about all this talk, it was groovy to kill him, and all that kind of business?
INMATE GROGAN: Well, I was told that if anybody was to ask what happened that those were the statements I was to give them in order to – at that point in time, at the ranch there was a lot of, seems like there was a little bit of dissention and philosophy that was promulgated there. There was always – fear or love would pull people together from breaking apart. And I think it was, you know, meant to understood that this statement would bring more fear to the people rather than just stab the guy the way we did.
So one of the things I have done that I don't believe anyone online has ever done is study in depth Steve "Clem" Grogan's Parole Hearing Transcripts for 1978, 1979, 1980 and the Jackpot one, 1981. There is a LOT of stuff that is not commonly known buried within. Especially if you accept that by this point Steve was coherent AND honest, since he wanted to get his ass out of prison.
So the next week of posts is dedicated to that 15 year old boy who lived in a back house of the ranch; who fucked pretty much every one of the ladies on the ranch; who had a very good and powerful singing voice; and who played retarded so well that even the BUG thought he was.
Welcome to Scramblehead Week!

I've been busy starting a big project and working away at uncovering forgotton pieces of information on TLB.
I am so sorry for not posting in over a week. Much new stuff will come your way.
Lots of retards started a White Rabbitt group. Check here to laugh and mock.
There's a Manson play being mentioned on Bret's site.
KTS really hasn't had much new or bad lately.
So let's ruminate on a thought I had....
Three people, one a tough jock, and two young girls enter your house. Two of the three are on speed.
Now it is a different time and place and the house has guests all the time. So you see them walking around and you go with it. Then you realize, uh oh, this is bad. But you don't want to believe the worst so you still go with it. And hey, if you're Abby and Voytek, you are high too.
But when do you wake up and go, shit I am gonna die, and we fucking outnumber these dirtbags?
I mean Tex ANNOUNCED he was the Devil when he walked in.
I continue to think TEX at least knew one or more of the main victims.
Otherwise, if I'm Voytek or Jay I ain't letting these freaks tie me up, I am kneeing Tex in the balls.
It feels to me that going along with three skeevy strangers who just show up at your house is like opening the door when a Crocodile knocks.
Does anyone else think like this?
Thursday, October 13, 2005
Okay now let’s make this clear- I am neither pro Manson nor anti Manson. Each side keeps wanting to adopt the
What do I think about Manson? I think he is happy where he is. He didn’t kill anyone. He never had a chance for a fair trial. But then he never tried really either. He wanted to be famous. He is. He was a two bit conman who is miles away from being “the most dangerous man alive. He played a role, he was happy to do so, and now he’s back home. I’m more upset at the people like the Bug that played him, not because CHARLIE regrets it but because any bending of the truth affects justice and affects you and me.
So again- slowly- I am pro reality. Nothing more.
Which brings up today’s post. What the hell is Squeaky doing?
Let’s follow what I believe is the truth first of all- and few people will actually disagree with any of it.
1- Squeaky was closest to Charlie.
2- Squeaky basically balled only Charlie (and Spahn I guess).
3- Supposedly Charlie was able to control Squeaky’s fits via sex.
4- Squeaky is a kind and gentle soul.
5- Squeaky’s mind never really process the Tate LaBianca horror. And because Charlie had little to do with it, she couldn’t understand what the fuss was all about.
6- When she saw her soul mate and many friends going to jail she wished she were part of the group. Even though she is not a killer like Sadie or
7- Post trial, she fights to keep the Family alive. Desperately so. But it disperses. Only she and Sandy keep the faith.
8- Rumor has it that the girls or Charlie are like, if she is so loyal why isn’t she in here.
9- Squeaky pulls a gun that she clearly does NOT intend to shoot on the President. She can never coherently explain why.
10- Squeaky goes to jail. With the glaring exception of a 1988 escape she is a model prisoner.
So what the hell is she thinking? It seems like she did it to get back on the front page. To remind the world about the “plight” of Charlie and the girls. To keep the candle alive.
She never does again after leaving for prison. She almost never does interviews. She doesn’t hold seminars. It’s weird. Like you throw your life away for your cause and then inexplicably DROP your cause.
And now she is up for Parole. And it doesn’t seem she wants it.
But if she were still fighting for the cause, don’t you see a world where she gets out and does her OWN book? Where she is on Today and Oprah with footage of the cute old her and she is still pounding the word of Charlie?
You know that would happen. She would be famous and everywhere for at least a year.
I don’t get it. What is Squeaky thinking?

Why is it that all these KTS groups cannot handle facts and want to show what very small minds they have. Dianne and Louisa, two yentas at the MANSON X Yahoo group, started to defend the moron known as White Rabbitt. They accused me of being Bret, the great owner of the Best Damn Manson Website On the Web, see link to the right. I corrected them and they sent this hilarious reply. Must suck to know that they have zero friends and no knowledge about life, much less the case--
Dianne, as you can see from
man with a high level of testosterone who really is not in control of
his hormones just yet. I think they refer to that as puberty.
Diane is right, it really doesn't make much sense to argue with a
to be respectful of others.
I'm not defending White Rabbitt. I do know a little bit about his
personal history but kick someone when they're down is just not how i
was raised. You can see that he made some very personal and very open
comments that i'm not going to repeat. He obviously thinks nothing
about physically assaulting women.
who has to twist arms and make threats to get attention.
White Rabbitt of doing the same. I've never heard of instances where
White Rabbitt has gotten Vulgar so perhaps this is one of
childish ways of causing issues for him. I can't say.
Diane runs this forum and whether she decides to let people like
person that has no respect for women and, if he were to go away, I
think that we would all be better off for it.
I'm sad to say that the Colonel sounds more like a buck private that
just straight out of boot camp; green and untested and has an overly
high opinion of himself. His arrogance is quite obvious and that's
usually caused by inexperience.
I still haven't seen an APOLOGY from
assume that he's not MAN enough to admit when he's wrong.
Oh Well, that's why i say that most men are pigs :-)
I'm sorry i had to take this tone, but you can tell that this is a
very touchy subject for me.

INT. PRISON. DAY.
The guard approaches the prisoner on his cot.
Rise and Shine Davis. It’s your lucky day.
Huh? What the hell, you interrupted my Ouisch dream?
Your what? Never mind. You know that crazy actor in Sacramento?
Davis sits up, trying to awake.
You mean Arnold? Yes.
Well to ease prison crowding or some such shit, he went crazy last night, granting clemency and what have you. You’re out.
Are you listening to me Davis. Grab your shit and get processed. You are released.
Davis looks around him, and then at the guard. Sees he is not kidding. Starts to grab his stuff. CUT TO:
EXT. PRISON. DAY.
Davis is second in line to exit. The WARDEN is ticking names off a clipboard as the prisoners exit.
ETHNIC PRISONER advances.
Okay. Thank you Sirhan, good luck in life. Next.
Okay Mr. Davis, you have your suit and your $200?
Okay have a nice life.
Thank you sir.
Davis exits the prison. He does not believe this. We follow.
He moves toward a waiting taxi. As he gets closer, a nearby sedan has all its doors open at once. Three men in suits, led by Stephen KAY, grab Davis.
Mr. Davis you are under arrest to be prosecuted for the murders of Lauren Gaul, James Sharp, Joel Pugh, Jane Doe #1 and John Doe #1. You have the right to remain silent....
Davis is dragged to the waiting sedan. He looks to the sky.
Jesus why you do this?
Charles "Tex" Watson had a parole hearing on October 1st. However he didn´t show up and stipulated his hearing signed a form that he found himself "unsuitable" for parole for one year. His hearing will be held in one year but according to the Board of Parole Hearings in Sacramento no date has been set. This is the third time that Watson takes this action. He probably knows he is never going to get out and says he is content either way, in or out of prison. (thanks to Bad Boy Bret for the 411)
So we got a letter the other day from Melton. His third grade education was showing. It said--- and this is exactly how he wrote it--
I really don't know what to say.... in my opinion,---
Melton is a liar, a fool, a snitch, full of crap, doesn't really know anything about the case, ugly, illiterate, foolish, and just a great big dork.
I love this group at Yahoo Manson_and_the Family. The owner Candygramma didn't know who Hoyt was. The moderator Tanya keeps leaving psychotic posts that no one understands on my two week old post. They kicked out pretty much everybody but themselves from the group. And then Rabbit launched an attack on another Yahoo group which could end him back in jail.
It would seem that this clown is SO desperate for attention that he will even thank me for pointing out just what a clown he is!
So anyway, my original post has already won awards for research in the TLB community. Check it out.

In an earlier now legendary post we discussed the concept of "No Show without Punch", the idea that back in the long ago day, the British would always introduce the "Punch" puppet into a show whether it made sense or not and how BUGliosi, with his constant appearance on EVERY lame tv show was akin to punch.
Now that I have watched like ten parole hearings while transferring them to DVD, I guess that makes Stephen Kay fucking JUDY.
It fits. Judy is second to Punch, but she's also more dangerous, destructive and all around stupid than Punch is. Judy is unaware of what she is doing and why. Just like Kay.
Kay starts out in the TLB world as a sort of junior Prosecutor to the great Punch. He's there after Stovitz falls off the case, and sort of watches the drama unfold. More importantly, he watches the fame that attaches to BUG and I think decides "I gotta get me some of that."
His job during the main trials is to backup BUG. He does the legendary interview with Ronni Howard about Sinatra and Liz Taylor being on a kill list (an obvious Atkins lie). He spends a lot of time in the law library. Later, he becomes the backup guy on the Hinman and Shea trials. He must be relieved when, finally, the State has to retry Leslie and he gets the gig. But he isn't very good. Her first re-trial ends in a hung jury. But Judy keeps provoking and sure enough, he ends up with a conviction. Fine- he has done his job.
But then the fucking guy shows up to Parole Hearing after Parole Hearing- FIFTY times over thirty years. Like let it go already. And to make matters worse, half the time he invents shit to read into the record, like about Charlie wanting to shrink everyone to fit into the bottomless hole. Indeed, he seems to treat the BUG's book like gospel. It's pathetic man - Atkins is never gonna get out, so why waste your time blocking her? Oh, I see, yes- AFTER EVERY HEARING HE HOLDS A NEWS CONFERENCE ON THE PRISON LAWN. Punch got a lot of attention so now Judy wants some too.
This is the fool who stated that Leslie would have been paroled in 1985. In his most recent hearing statements he urges that she never be paroled. He also says, wrongly, that she was spared Death by the Supreme Court. Except that whole verdict was reversed for her by an appeals court. In her actual current sentence she is serving she never had a death sentence.
For years he would also offer up media interviews, even though he hasn't yet written his sure to come book. With his nasal voice and big ass glasses Kay actually at times seems like a puppet. I vaguely remember Nelson commenting that the Bug got pissed at all the credit Kay took over the years.
I mean I don't want Atkins out of jail either, but I don't want prosecutors lying about anything.
My realization of what a clown this guy was reached new heights a year and a half ago. This ludicrous new book BLACK DAHLIA AVENGER came out and a big selling point the author used was that it was fully endorsed by Stephen Kay, the Manson prosecutor. The book is a JOKE as you can see by scanning this SITE, and Judy signed her name to it.
Puppet shows do get tedious after a while.

Frequent Reader "Gary" asks "
I would like to know what you think about it."
Here is what he refers to:
Shortly before his death, Beach Boys drummer Dennis Wilson told Bill Scanlon Murphy (A former session musician with the Beach Boys and friend of Dennis Wilson) "I know Manson didn't do it. He was an asshole and a criminal, but this family shit is all wrong. I know". Although Wilson wouldn't elaborate, Murphy's curiosity was piqued, and he decided to further investigate the matter; an investigation that spanned over 10 years and brought him in contact with West Coast porn stars, mobsters and assorted druggies. According to Murphy, he and his family have been threatened by Manson supporters and the Mafia. This harassment is in part due to information Murphy obtained from the sources within the California State Attorneys Office and the LAPD, the nature of which suggests that authorities knew the real motive behind the murders, but chose to prosecute it as a sham "serial killer cult trial" to cover up the involvement of Hollywood bigshots with drugs, orgies and the mob."
What do I think?
I think first of all that this Lisa person needs to stop putting quotes from books out there as "facts." There are tons of facts in Sanders book but no truth. Many "facts" in the Bug's book are just made up. Calling something a fact when it isn't is bad form.
The short response to this is that the LAPD couldn't cover up anything for long- every time they try from Rampart on down they fail. I think that the police arrested the killers because, well, they killed everybody, and arrested Charlie because they felt the need to get the perceived honcho. In order to GET Charlie they felt they needed a motive (not legally but in reality) and thus Bug made shit up. So no, I don't think they covered anything up.
Scanlon Murphy is a weird dude- I have a radio show he did and he shows up occasionally in AesNihil's tapes- but he never wrote anything substantial that I am aware of from his research. I am not sure whether he should be trusted about anything.
As far as orgies and shit- hell just read Sanders newest edition- he spends PAGE after PAGE talking about the hunt for the "Family Sex and Snuff Films" back in the day- but they never surfaced because, ummm, they didn't exist.
If what you are asking me is what the actual motive was, I don't think any of the actual killers even know. But I do think it involved drugs, and I do think it involved Gibby and Voytek only. They were the ones meant to die.
Hope you like my thoughts Gary, really I do.
