Donovan Correctional Facility, California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation officials said in a news release.</span></div></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><div><span style="font-size: large;">The facility houses inmates classified as medium-security risks, and they were in the outdoor yard for their morning recreation.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Corrections officers quelled the riot with pepper spray after inmates ignored multiple requests to stop fighting, the department said.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div></div><div><div><span style="font-size: large;">No lethal force was used to break up the melee, which took about three minutes to halt, prison Capt. Philip Bracamonte said.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Ten inmates were taken to hospitals. One suffered serious head injuries and was flown to a hospital by helicopter, the department said.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Three of the inmates sustained “major trauma,” and the rest had “minor trauma,” Patrick Walker, battalion chief with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, told OnScene TV.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">None of the correctional officers were hurt. Staffers exposed to pepper spray were treated at the prison.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Prison officials said multiple “inmate-manufactured weapons” — commonly known as shanks — had been found at the scene.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Facility A houses about 640 inmates, Bracamonte said, but he was not able to say how many were in the rec yard when the trouble started.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">The captain said the investigation will include inmate interviews “to determine if there was any tension on the facility and what may have led up to this riot.”</span></div></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><div><span style="font-size: large;">The riot marks the second time the prison has been in the news this week. According to a federal complaint unsealed Wednesday, a prison employee has been arrested on suspicion of smuggling cellphones into the facility in exchange for about $13,000 in bribes.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">In December, two inmates were stabbed when about two dozen inmates rioted in a maximum-security yard.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">The 32-year-old prison houses about 3,800 inmates, who are classified at security levels of minimum, medium and maximum, and employs 1,850 people.</span></div></div>LynyrdSkynyrdBandnoreply@blogger.com8tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-27419019996327504922019-02-01T10:12:00.000-05:002019-02-01T10:12:53.385-05:00<h1 class="title" itemprop="headline" style="-webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px;

font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Lynyrd Weighs-in:</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">I found a document published by the California Department of Corrections (2011) which gives a statistical breakdown of actual prison time served by inmates.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">The statistics are broken-down by specific crime... i.e., 1st degree murder, manslaughter, rape, etc.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">In short, it states the mean/median time served by an inmate (for a specific crime) before they are first paroled.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">According to the document, inmates convicted of first degree murder (pre 11-8-78) serve an average of 408 months in California, before they are released on parole.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">408 months = 34 years</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Extrapolate what you will from those figures, but statistics are hard to dispute.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Post 11-8-78, the average first degree murderer serves 344 months in California, which translates to 28.5 years.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">I'm not a fan of Bobby, and personally, I'd have no problem seeing him die in jail.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">He has a smug attitude, which I find repelling.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">However, I'm also a firm believer that punishment should be carried-out in a consistent manner.&nbsp;</span><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">People perpetrating similar crimes, should serve similar sentences.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">If we feel that our justice system is being too lenient on crime (in general), we should enact laws which are tougher (across the board) on EVERYONE.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">I think it's pretty safe to conclude (at this point) that being associated with "the Manson Family" (and the notoriety that entails), creates obstacles for Bobby, Bruce and Leslie (in terms of parole) that the average (unknown) inmate will never know.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Common sense and statistical data seem to support that conclusion.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span> <span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">I guess, how one feels about this apparent "double standard" situation, depends largely upon one's personal feelings towards Bobby, versus their feelings regarding consistency in punishment.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow;

Channels’ lawyer, Theodore Theodosiadis, told Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Clifford Klein that he will bring a motion to obtain the sample.</span><br /><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Freeman, wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with “Be The Change,” explained after the hearing his reason for not wanting to voluntarily grant Channels’ request.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">“There are people on the other side who are trying to build up a case against me,” said Freeman, adding that he will take the test if the judge orders it because he is convinced of his relationship to Manson.</span></div></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><div><span style="font-size: large;">“To me, it’s an open-and-shut case,” Freeman said. “All my life that’s the way I grew up. That’s all I’ve known.'</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Meanwhile, Klein extended until June 21 attorney Dale Kiken’s role as temporary special administrator role over the mass killer’s estate. Kiken originally was appointed to the role on Aug. 28, giving him authority to protect Freeman’s interests, but the term was scheduled to expire Friday.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Kiken is tasked with recovering property, on behalf of Freeman, that the cult leader left behind in prison when he died Nov. 19, 2017, at age 83. The notorious killer died at Bakersfield Mercy Hospital of heart failure triggered by colon cancer that had spread to other areas of his body.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Kiken told the judge that he has already obtained boxes of Manson’s belongings from Corcoran State Prison, but that he has not gone through the items yet, nor does he know their potential value.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">“I would guess those are some difficult items to appraise” Klein said.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Klein ordered that redacted documents Theodosiadis obtained from the prison by subpoena be kept under seal and viewable only by lawyers and investigators in the case. Kiken’s lawyer, Alan Davis, said he does not know what information is in the paperwork Theodosiadis obtained.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Freeman said he is unaware of the nature of the items Kiken obtained from the prison, but that the potential value of the property is not as important to him as the spiritual peace he has reached with himself.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">“I’m [happy] in my life finally at age 43,” Freeman said. “I know I’m going to go home and go back to work.'”</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">Freeman said he has four children and works in construction. He said he also trains people in martial arts.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">He won a significant court victory when a Kern County commissioner ruled in March that he was entitled to Manson’s remains. Freeman and Kiken maintain that a 2002 Manson will Channels alleges he possesses is a forgery. Channels said the will, filed in Kern County in November 2017, names him the executor of Manson’s estate.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;">A trial on the competing petitions by Kiken and Channels to be the estate’s permanent administrator has not been set.</span></div><div><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><div><span style="color: lime; font-size: large;">Article submitted by Lee.</span></div><div><br /></div></div>LynyrdSkynyrdBandnoreply@blogger.com28tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-25735929722923421942018-11-16T14:50:00.000-05:002018-11-16T14:50:17.616-05:00Sam Kinison: This country's last Republican college professor.<iframe allow="accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-in-picture" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/u3cb09hVH_g" width="560"></iframe>LynyrdSkynyrdBandnoreply@blogger.com22tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-30547607709863601292018-10-26T21:30:00.000-04:002018-10-30T11:47:36.438-04:00William Weston writes....<div style="background: white; margin: 0in 0in 1.2pt;"><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><span style="font-size: large;">Hi,</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: large;">The following is a suggestion for a thread on the Tate-LaBianca Homicide Research Blog. It involves glasses that were found in the Tate home and did not belong to the victims or the killers.

Shortly after midnight, they entered the home of actress Sharon Tate at 10500 Cielo Drive in Benedict Canyon and brutally murdered her and four other people.</b></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;"><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><b>Originally, the police believed the slaughter at the Tate house was the work of one man. A clue to his identity was a pair of glasses found in the living room. A lieutenant for the Los Angeles Police Department, Robert Helder, showed them to the press on October 23 and said that the killer probably lost them during the struggle with the victims. He further said the owner was extremely near-sighted and could not operate a vehicle without them. An unusual feature was the plastic lenses. Unlike glass lenses, plastic resisted shattering and was the choice of very active people such as athletes. The amber-colored, horn-rimmed frames were of a specific type manufactured by the American Optical Corp. The customized bend of the temple shafts showed that the left ear was about one-fourth to one-half inch higher than the right. Police sent flyers to thousands of eye doctors, hoping that someone might provide information about the man who bought them.</b></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;">&nbsp;</span></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: xx-small;"><br /></span> <span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><i>Glasses found at the Tate house.</i></span></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: large;"><b>What the news media hailed as a major breakthrough in October quickly became an almost forgotten loose end in December after the arrest of Charles Manson, Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Linda Kasabian, none of whom wore glasses.</b></span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: #222222; font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif; font-size: large;"><b>When the case came to trial, prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi feared that defense attorneys might bring up the glasses and make the reasonable assertion that at least one killer was still at large. From that standpoint, they could argue that the wrong people were on trial. As it turned out, the glasses were never mentioned during the Manson trial nor the Tex Watson trial.

He could have simply laid low in the bushes with the 3 girls and let him pass. It’s doubtful Parent would have noticed them. The only reason I can surmise is that Parent would have noticed their car, parked down the hill, on his exit. He could have provided a description of the car after the murders, and if he were suspicious enough to note the license plate, that would have been a real liability.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">But then why use the revolver instead of the knife? They were going to creepy-crawl the house, relying on a stealth approach — and to initiate the whole thing with 4 gunshots in a canyon that would echoed the sound? Watson had to know that the shots might have alerted the occupants, and possibly other inhabitants of the canyon. Someone might have called the police. (I’ve done this before when I heard distinctive gunshots in my neighborhood). Garretson heard the shots and thought they were Parent’s car backfiring. If Garretson heard them from the Guest House, further away, it’s probable that the occupants heard them, too. Only Frykowski was asleep.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">I understand that the team had rolled the car back down the hill silently after approaching the gate. But I don’t know how far down the car was, or how exposed it was. Seems Watson was not thinking too clearly here. He could have ordered Parent out of the car at gunpoint, led him to the bushes, and he and the 3 girls could have dispatched him with the knives without making a racket.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">But then Watson was not thinking too clearly when he told the victims they were “all going to die,” setting off panic.</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Thanks,</span><br /><span style="color: yellow; font-size: large;">Travis</span>LynyrdSkynyrdBandnoreply@blogger.com265tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-1153979053290771002018-06-07T13:45:00.001-04:002018-06-07T15:44:04.085-04:00The Lost Tapes of Robert Hendrickson?<div style="font-stretch: normal; line-height: normal;"><span style="color: lime; font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: x-large;"><a href="https://deadline.com/2018/06/fox-charles-manson-doc-series-liev-schreiber-1202404672/" target="_blank">https://deadline.com/2018/06/fox-charles-manson-doc-series-liev-schreiber-1202404672/</a></span></div><div style="font-stretch: normal; line-height: normal;"><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><img src="https://pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2018/06/rexfeatures_6622596b.jpg?w=446&amp;h=299&amp;crop=1" /></span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"></span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">Fox Prepares Liev Schreiber-Narrated Charles Manson Doc Special Based On Unseen Archive Footage Of The Cult</span><br /><div><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span></div><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">EXCLUSIVE: Fox is exploring the gruesome murders carried out by Charles Manson’s ‘family’ in a new Liev Schreiber-narrated documentary special based on a vault of unseen footage of the cult. I hear that the broadcaster has ordered two-part Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes from Naked Entertainment.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-size: large;">The documentary is a retelling of the Manson story using original 16mm footage that was found in the archives of Robert Hendrickson, the filmmaker behind Oscar-nominated doc Manson who died in 2016. The series will look at how the members, who carried out a number of grisly murders, including the brutal attack on Sharon Tate, went from peace-loving hippies to mass murderers.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">The two-parter goes inside Spahn’s Ranch, where the Manson cult lived, to offer an intimate and terrifying look into America’s most murderous group. The special will feature rare photos and new and archival interviews with former Manson cult members, such as Catherine “Gypsy” Share and Dianne “Snake” Lake, as well as key people involved in the Manson case, including prosecutor Stephen Kay and FBI criminal profiler John Douglas.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">Directed by Hugh Ballantyne (Finding Jesus), the doc will explore how Manson orchestrated the murders and encouraged a group of mostly young, middle class women to carry out the killings, which he hoped would be blamed on the Black Panthers and lead to a race war.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">The doc is produced by Naked Entertainment, the FremantleMedia-backed UK and U.S. production company set up by Simon Andreae, who was Executive Vice President, Alternative Entertainment at Fox Broadcasting between 2013 and 2015. It is the company’s first major U.S. network order, having recently made a number of series for Viacom’s Channel 5 and Channel 4 in the UK. Inside The Manson Cult: The Lost Tapes is exec produced by Andreae, Ballantyne, Richard Dale, Allan Gaba and Dean Egnater. It is understood to have been co-produced in association of British broadcaster ITV.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, &quot;Times New Roman&quot;, serif; font-size: large;">The special is the latest Charles Manson-related project to emerge as the 50th anniversary of the cult’s most infamous murder, the killing of Tate, approaches next year. Quentin Tarantino’s forthcoming movie Once Upon A Time, which stars Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio also mines this world.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Times, Times New Roman, serif; font-size: large;">It is the latest Charles Manson project developed by Fox; in 2014, the broadcaster developed a scripted series from American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis and horror director Rob Zombie that was set a year before the Manson family’s murder spree in 1969. However, it never made it to air and was ultimately trumped by NBC’s David Duchovny-fronted series Aquarius, which mined similar territory.</span><br /><br /></div>starshiphttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13207679706874165027noreply@blogger.com25tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-20221335144082830462018-06-01T13:14:00.000-04:002018-06-01T16:08:51.926-04:00The Debate Rages On...<span style="font-size: large;">Katie and I are always fighting over which situation is more miserable... the winter cold up north (Massachusetts), or the summer heat down south (Texas).

It's been very valuable to me in the creation of Manson's Girls. I wrote the lyrics for this show which will have it's world premiere at the Hollywood Fringe Festival less than two weeks from now. If any of you are in the Hollywood area I would be pleased to give you free tickets.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">The musical covers the month between the arrival of Linda Kasabian and the murders. It is meant as a cautionary tale rather than an exploitation piece, as we see Linda sliding down the slippery slope from hippie to murder accomplice. It is not a comedy, though it has it's ironic moments.</span><br /><span style="font-size: large;"><br /></span><span style="font-size: large;">There is a rock and roll score performed by a live band accompanying a dozen snappy songs like "Every Day I Fall In Love" (Squeaky's ode to Charlie) and "Helter Skelter" (the finale where the whole family revs up their bloody engine for revolution).

We're told the body was decomposing badly, and needed heavy makeup and gloves to cover the deterioration. He died 4 months ago but his body was put on ice until a judge decided who would take control of it.</span><br /><br /><img height="498" src="https://media.tmz.com/2018/03/19/0319-charles-manson-funeral-pamphlet-tmz-wm-7.jpg" width="640" /><span style="font-size: large;">Approximately 30 people showed up at the funeral home.

His body was cremated and his ashes were spread along a nearby creek bed in a forest. Apparently it was a windy day, because the ashes blew back on the guests.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: large;">We're told the attendees included Manson's former fiancee, Afton Burton, and former Manson Family member Sandra Good.</span><br /><br /><span style="font-size: large;">As TMZ first reported ...

Deputies attempted to contact Gordon, but reportedly were unsuccessful as of the time of the report.<br /><br />Donna Stemple, Martin’s wife, told the Journal they do not really know what their nephew, Channels, is doing in California as it relates to the Manson situation. Her husband only filed the report with deputies in an attempt to get Gordon to stop calling after she began at 4 a.m. and continually called each time they hung up the phone.<br /><br />One of Channels’ Facebook pages, which he has not updated since 2014, states he went to Wellsville High School and lives in Los Angeles, Calif. The page contains many posts with references to Manson; Helter Skelter, which was the name of some of the reported apocalyptic teachings of Manson; and the Museum of Death, which showcases death-related memorabilia including Charles Manson Family relics.<br /><br />Additionally, Channels is reportedly the webmaster for the webpage Mansonsbackporch.com, which has letters between Manson and Channels and other items related to Mason and the family. There is a photo on the page, which appears to show Manson and Channels sitting together visiting in a prison.<br /><br />According to the Los Angeles Times, as of Dec. 21, five people have now come forward claiming their right to the body of Manson, including one who claims to be a long-time pen pal of Manson.<br /><br />Manson’s followers were reportedly responsible for the killing of nine people including a pregnant actress, Sharon Tate. Although he reportedly was not the actual killer, he was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in 1971 for his role in instructing those who carried out the murders, and spent the remainder of his life in prison.<br /><br /><a href="http://www.morningjournalnews.com/news/local-news/2017/12/not-us-family-says-of-manson-connection/">http://www.morningjournalnews.com/news/local-news/2017/12/not-us-family-says-of-manson-connection/</a>katie8753noreply@blogger.com6tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6001083595175224919.post-83015082743916541032017-12-22T13:04:00.000-05:002017-12-22T13:12:08.675-05:00Manson not cremated yet, refrigerated in Kern County.<span style="color: cyan; font-size: x-large;"><a href="http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-manson-remains-20171221-story.html" target="_blank">http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-manson-remains-20171221-story.html</a></span>LynyrdSkynyrdBandnoreply@blogger.com1
