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?
