    Here there poopy pants!

    When Manson was a child, he felt like he was rejected by his mother for starters.

    He began to steal, which resulted in him staying at reform schools.

    He began to escape out of most of these reform schools in most of his youth.

    In 1951, after a certain amount of federal offenses, he was moved to prison, one of the offenses being auto theft.

    WIthin his first year of prison, he was convicted of 8 assult charges.

    He was sent to another prison, and for "cleaning up his act", he was released in 1954.

    In 1955, he got married and moved to CA, where he was convicted of stealing a car.

    He was released in 58 and supported himself as being a pimp in Hollywood.

    He then was sentenced to 10 years for promoting prositution.

    In 1969 when he was released, had became a leader his group of followers called the "Family".


    The Tate Murders:

    In 1969, he sent some of his followers Charles "Tex" Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, and Linda Kasabian to the home of Terry Melcher. "Their instructions were to kill everyone at the house and make it appear like Hinman's murder, with words and symbols written in blood on the walls. The four did as they were told and brutally killed Steven Parent, Jay Sebring, Wojciech Frykowski, Abigail Folger, Sharon Tate and Sharon Tate's unborn child."(quoted from source)

    "The next day Manson, Tex Watson, Susan Atkins, Patricia Krenwinkel, Steve Grogan, Leslie Van Houten, and Linda Kasabian went to the home of Leno and Rosemary Labianca. Manson and Watson tied up the couple and Manson left. He told Van Houten and Krenwinkel to go in and kill the LaBiancas. The three separated the couple and murdered them, then had dinner and a shower and hitchhiked back to Spahn Ranch. Manson, Atkins, Grogan and Kasabian drove around looking for others to kill, but failed." (quoted from source)

    "One of the biggest breaks in the case came when Susan Atkins boasted in detail about the murders to her prison cell mates. She gave specific details about Manson and the killings. She also told of other famous people the Family planned on killing. " (quoted from source)

    "It was Kasabian's account of the murders and of the control that Manson had over the Family that nailed Bugliosi's case. She told the jury that no family member ever wanted to tell Charlie Manson "no." On January 25, 1971 the jury returned a guilty verdict of all defendants and on all counts of first-degree murder. Manson, like the other three defendants, was sentenced to death in the gas chamber. Manson shouted, "You people have no authority over me," as he was led off in handcuffs." (quoted from source)

    Manson was responsible for the killings of nine people.

    Manson did not actually participate in the killings of Tate and LaBianca households. He only was suspect for killing one guy and bury him at the ranch where they lived. He just tell his followers to kill and they do it for him. But in the world this makes you as equal of guilt as the actual killer.

    Source(s): I do not have URL for this information I just remember it because I have read a book about the incidence.

    You should try to borrow the book "Helter Skelter" from your local library.
