I don't always respond to letters because I am a busy son of a bitch. It is tough making all that money and keeping my supermodel wife happy. Couple that with having to slap down those freaks Cg and Jiminy Crickett and that makes for a busy Col. But here are three letters. My replies are in red.
Dear Colonel Scott,
Hi! I’ve been reading your fascinating Tate LaBianca blog for the past couple of months. I’m up to October 2006. Can’t access most of the films, because we have sloooow dial-up out here in the wilds of rural Michigan. (“Official” site… is that sort of like the “official” sports drink of NASCAR?) Anyway. I’ve come up with some things about the cases that just don’t compute.We do consider rural Michigan to be the United States, so welcome. And no, not like Nasacar, more like cow tipping.
It took five guys to subdue one midget? Charlie W., Paul, Bruce, Clem, and Charlie M.? I don’t buy it. And why is Charlie M. claiming the vic was dismembered, when Shea's body was found intact? Sounds like Dad threatening the kids with the bogeyman.Paul had nothing to do with any killings. He was just the snitch. Tex was in jail when this happened. It took two, Bruce and Clem, while Charlie watched and Gypsy and Brenda cleaned , according to my information and opinion.
2.) But it took only one guy with the dubious help of three females, one who claimed she never entered the house, to kill FIVE people? Three of them fairly strong guys. Two of whom are suspected drug dealers. Hey, don’t they issue weapons to the dope pushers out there in California?They were stoned and not expecting hippies.
3.) Is there any DNA evidence linking Charles M. to either the Tate or LaBianca crime scenes?None that I know off
4.) If yes, howcome that hasn’t been brought up recently? And if no, same question… high-profile murders usually get a DNA revisit in these modern times. A few death-penalty prisoners have been given a free pass when the DNA doesn’t match up to expectations. But no one claims they didn't DO it so there is no reason for a revisit.Is there anything other that unreliable hearsay linking Charles M. to either the Tate or LaBianca crimes? Physical evidence, fingerprints, footprints, eye-witnesses from the neighborhood, anything other than a piece of rawhide? ("Hey, dude, where's the tie to my favorite shirt?")Nothing on Tate. Leather strips from his shirt at LaBianca
6.) If Charlie M. told everyone what to write in blood on the walls,He didn't- at most it is claimed he said write something "witchy"
howcome there weren’t any references to ATWA?Cause he made that shit up years later That was already a buzz word around the ranch, or so I’m told. No references to “Stranger in a Strange Land”? Heck, the guy named his kid after the main character. And we're supposed to believe that "Helter Skelter" was supposed to start a race war? Did someone forget to send a memo to the Brothas?We don't believe it here at the Official Blog
7.) Don’t discount Charlie as being dumb. I admire a man who taught himself to read and write, play the guitar, and have knowledge about environmental causes. Charles is cool. He’s simply a shaman, a medicine-talker, a dreamer, a poet, a musician. Having known dozens of ’em, they ALL talk like that. You say “Good morning”, and they reply, “The sun is beaming down through the prisms of my mind.” You ask ’em “Did you kill anyone?” and they’ll answer, “The ravens of death float over the wreckage of the populace.” This doesn’t play so hot in court or at the parole board hearing. Soooo – howcome nobody could find him a lawyer who could translate Shaman to Latinized Engish Legalese? (Evidence of Shamanic stuff... the hole in the earth is a well-documented Native American and pre-Christian European legend. And I think the rap about the race war was a prediction of the Los Angeles riots. But I'm a Pagan, and we take that kind of thing seriously. We even write theses about it, and get paid money.)I never said he was dumb. I don't believe he wants out.
8BBobby BeauSoleil says he killed Hinman, with aforementioned dubious female help, and that Charles M. really hadn’t anything to do with it. So whatever happened to the infamous ear-splitting sword of destruction? Wasn’t there a claim it was used in another assault or killing? So why isn’t it listed as “Exhibit #153” anywhere? Or did I miss this?Charlie attacked, Bobby killed.
9.) Anybody happen to do a tox test on either Charlie W. or Sadie after they were caught?It was months later. No. Cuz their behavior sure seems like amphetamine rage. Not that I would know about that, or anything. I bet if they had peed in a cup, the speed would actually bubble to the top and boil over.
10.If the ranch was a hotbed of drug dealership, how come the police never confiscated much of anything? They raided the place numerous times. They even took away the kids, once or twice. Here and now, in Michigan circa the year of our lord two double ought seven, a high school teacher with a roach stuck to his shoe got jailed and lost his license. Was sunny CA so drowning in
drugs in 1969 that the cops overlooked the bales of pot, rolls of acid tabs, barrels of psy-mushrooms that permeated the ranch? Or wasn’t there really anything there?It was a different time. Acid had been legal for years.
11How’bout la casa Polanski? Anything ever found during the collection of evidence? I have a hard time believing there wasn’t so much as a roach in the ashtray. What about the lovely home of the LaBiancas? Can you say cover-up? There were no drugs found at either place.
12.This one is gonna get me angry letters from the Italian sirname defamation league) “Supermarket owner”, my left tit. I’m willing to bet the farm that LaBianca was the supplier, Hinman and Frykowski the dealers (and Crowe, too) with Charlie W. and pals getting a piece of the action for the bikers, musicians and other assorted pals. Funny, the prosecutor didn’t bring this up. Oh, yeah, he was Italian, LaBianca was Italian. The whole thing smells like the sweet scent of hashish in the morning. Somebody owed somebody money.That last line is true.
13. (Last one, I promise, thirteen’s a good number) As the owner and manager of a late-teen-age girl and her collection of boyz du jour, I can’t even get them to take out the trash and run a broom across the floor. So I am to believe that an ethereal poet-musician-shaman with CSP all over his resume, not only masterminded an intricate plot, but actually persuaded five or six young folks to follow his detailed commands? Riiiight. It was prolly much more like “Let’s go cow tipping, Katie!”Hey wait! “Let’s go paint our names on the water tower, Sadie!” I always thought he simply said FUCK THAT MELCHER GUY SOMEONE SHOULD GO TO HIS HOUSE AND SEND HIM A MESSAGE and the two people who had the most to prove, Tex and Sadie, went.
Colonel, you are right that you’ve forgotten more about this case than even the prosecutor ever knew… any insights? Please don't mock me for my ignorance,Never. You are not like those in that Yahoo group. since I've only met a few of the players in this drama, and they're just as confused as the rest of us. Thank you for your time.
I don't understand why you are so mean with her !?Because she is a liar and attention seeker
Except some great rare pictures it's a lot of gossip. If by gossip you mean pure facts then yes you are correct.
For example, telling Steven Parrent was gay!?It is crucial because it explains why he was at the house.
I am gay too but it's personnal and I don't see the link with the case.It was a major link.
Steve was young and it was a long time ago.
Beside you were not in the guest house. And who cares??It is crucial because it provides a viable reason why Parent was there and why Garrettson lied so much. It allows us to establish that neither of them were actual targets of the killers.
I don't know who you are but you are certainly not the official voice of the Tate LaBianca case.I am Col Scott and this is the one and only Official Blog.
Your pseudonym is also bad taste (Manson's father!) It is because everything to do with the case is my responsibility
without mentionning the quotes of Manson on your first page.The quotes point out that the prosecution story is bullshit
People like you make me sick.Try an aspirin
Let them rest in peace and leave their family alone. Get a life!
