Prosecuting attorney in the Manson trial, Vincent Bugliosi held a unique insider's position in one of the most baffling and horrifying cases of the twentieth century: the cold-blooded Tate-LaBianca murders carried out by Charles Manson and four of his followers. What motivated Manson in his seemingly mindless selection of victims, and what was his hold over the young women who obeyed his orders? Here is the gripping story of this famous and haunting crime. 50 pages of b/w photographs. @goodreads
So the simple fact is: this man is crazier than a sh•t house rat!
He's disturbing and sick.
And is his 80 + year old nasty self still married to some 20 something year old? I'm not showing pictures. I don't even want to do a review thinking some freaks are still out there and will come for us all!
And don't get me started on those crazy girls of his, well the whole crew, but still!
We are off to be charged with murder, and we don't care at all. <--- like my little jingle.
The book is filled with pictures of all kinds of things, some disturbing. Lets just call this disturbing and call it a day! No, I want to add some excerpts of one of the crazy heads! She was like telling all of her stuff to a lady in jail. Of course if freaked the lady prisoner out but that goes without saying.
Virginia asked her, "Well, did you do it?"
Susan looked at her and smiled and said, "Sure." Just like that.
Only the police had it wrong, she said. They had her holding the man while the boy stabbed him, which was silly, because she couldn't hold a big man like that. It was the other way round; the boy held him and she had stabbed him, four or five times.
What stunned Virginia, she would later say, was that Susan described it "just like it was a perfectly natural thing to do every day of the week."
Susan's conversations were not limited to murder. Subjects ranged from psychic phenomena to her experiences as a topless dancer in San Francisco. It was while there, she told Virginia, that she met "a man, this Charlie." He was the strongest man alive. He had been in prison but had never been broken. Susan said she followed his orders without question--they all did, all the kids who lived with him. He was their father, their leader, their love.
It was Charlie, she said, who had given her the name Sadie Mae Glutz.
"You know, there's a case right now, they are so far off track they don't even know what's happening."
Virginia asked, "What are you talking about?"
"That one on Benedict Canyon."
"Benedict Canyon? You don't mean Sharon Tate?"
"Yeah." With this Susan seemed to get very excited. The words came out in a rush. "You know who did it, don't you?"
"Well, you're looking at her."
Virginia gasped, "You've got to be kidding!"
Susan just smiled and said, "Huh-uh."
She asked the big question first: Why, Sadie, why? Because, Susan replied, we "wanted to do a crime that would shock the world, that the world would have to stand up and take notice." But why the Tate house? Susan's answer was chilling in its simplicity: "It is isolated." The place had been picked at random.
I mean seriously?
The book tells in detail about the day the people were found, all of the records that could be told, how they found the freaks and arrested them, how things were done to different people. It's pretty graphic and then we go through the court cases.
Anyway, if you wanted to know more about what all went down then this is the book.
