Starcity Radio Show 4-15-12...  DeJon R Lewis & Mary Brunner

I checked out the Starcity Radio show tonight.  It was very interesting and enjoyable. 
Brian spoke with Manson's (parole hearing) attorney DeJon R Lewis.

Lewis stated that Manson would have stood a much better chance at being paroled in 2012, if he received mental health treatment, much earlier-on in his incarceration.  Lewis felt, this treatment may have encouraged/aided Manson in making the appropriate changes and upgrades to himself... which would make a shot at parole (2012) viable. 
I agree.  That was the general theme, of Lewis' input.

Unfortunately, that early intervention never happened for Manson... and at this point... the horse is/was pretty much out of the barn. 
Given the cards Lewis was dealt... he pursued a (mental health) hospitalization placement (transfer) for Manson... to no result.

The most interesting part of the interview:
Lewis stated that Manson chose not to attend the hearing... because Manson made "special requests" of the guards... which they (the guards) refused to comply with. 
I was dying to know what those "special requests" were... but, the conversation never turned back to that topic.  Knowing Manson... those "special requests" could have been just about anything.  As everyone recalls... Manson made unusual "special requests" during his original trial... which (in part) led to Judge Keene revoking Manson's right to defend himself.

Shortly after Manson was found guilty, Kathleen Maddox (his mother) said, in an interview:
"I still believe, that if those jurors would just talk to Charles for 15 minutes, they could see he's mentally ill.  He needs treatment-- has for years.  I don't know what to do now".

Afterwards... Brian revealed a recent photo of Mary Brunner.  Personally... I'm convinced the photo is actually Mary.  The photo is posted at

Brian "plugged" our blog a couple times, and was very gracious... thanking me for my visit.
Katie is a regular over there, and always receives great treatment... and has a good time.
Here's a return plug for Brian:

Charles Manson denied parole for 12th time

CORCORAN, Calif. -- Manson, now a gray-bearded, 77-year-old, did not attend the hearing where the parole board ruled he had shown no efforts to rehabilitate himself and would not be eligible for parole for another 15 years.  "This panel can find nothing good as far as suitability factors go," said John Peck, a member of the panel that met at Corcoran.
