Manson follower Leslie Van Houten granted parole in notorious murders; Brown will make final decision

Leslie Van Houten, who was convicted along with other members of Charles Manson’s cult in the 1969 killings of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, was granted parole Wednesday by a panel of state commissioners in Chino.

Gov. Jerry Brown must now once again decide whether to release her from prison after 40 years. Brown rejected release last year.

    The panel members should have to take turns putting her up in their homes.

    • I suspect Brown will nix it.

        Agreed. He takes a personal interest in Manson followers and denies their paroles when he can, and likely his executive prejudice on such things probably isn’t legal either. Then again, good luck getting anyone to stand up for former Manson “family” members.

    Give her one day of freedom when she ever goes terminal.
    And take it away after that.

    Her release? How about “f@#k no” as an answer?
