Poll, Do you think that Leslie Van Houten should get parole?
she was never sentenced to death (like the others) she was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole.
should she be paroled?

At this point in her life, yes. Sadly she was weak minded and manipulated by Charles Manson, we can't condemn her for being weak minded, so many in society are (why do you think cults and blind allegiance to religion is so popular?) The influence of Charles Manson has been removed and she knows that what she did is wrong and regrets her actions. We allow rapists, murders, child molesters, etc, back on the street without showing the remorse she has. Yes, what was done to those people was horrible, and the man responsible is locked away and will more then likely die in prison, and that is the way it should be. I don't see Leslie Van Houten as a threat to society anymore.
