Charles Manson Granted Parole

Corcoran, California – One of the most famous killers in the American prison system will be walking free.  On Tuesday Charles Manson, who is now 79 years old, was granted parole by the California Board of Parole and authorized by California Governor Jerry Brown.

According to California Board of Parole Hearings Commissioner John Peck, prison overcrowding  forced the prison board to re-evaluate prisoners that are elderly or those with serious illnesses.  In February a panel of federal judges ordered California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) two more years to reduce chronic prison overcrowding that has cost the state billions of dollars.

he ruling, issued by three judges overseeing the state’s efforts to ease the overcrowding, gives California until February 2016 to achieve their goals. But, the judges said, the state has to make elderly inmates and those with serious illnesses eligible for parole immediately.

Manson, who was denied parole in April of 2012 and wasn’t scheduled for another parole hearing until 2027, was re-evaluated due to his age and health and the Parole Board recommended his parole.

“He is 79 years old and in poor health,” said Commissioner Peck. “We know it’s not going to be a popular decision but, considering our other options he’s the least threat.”

Protesters have already planned to picket the lawn outside of the prison in Corcoran but what is more surprising is the number of supporters that have come out to express joy over the news.

“It’s a great [expletive] day in America!” said Joe Goldsmith, who camped out in from of the prison Wednesday morning decked out in manson gear with tattoos covering his face.  “Manson is my idol”

While parole was granted, the actual release date has not yet been set.

If you are going to be kept alive in institutions run by and paid for by the State, you must accept the State’s right to economize when necessary …” The Ministry of Fear by Graham Green (New York: Penguin Books [1943] 2005, p. 165).

Charles Manson Parole Hoax: ‘Granted Parole,’ Free from California Prison Article is Fake
By Jack Phillips, Epoch Times | June 6, 2014

Charles Manson was not granted parole, and an article saying he was freed from prison is fake.

The fake report was posted on Empire News, a self-described “satire” website.

“One of the most famous killers in the American prison system will be walking free. On Tuesday Charles Manson, who is now 79 years old, was granted parole by the California Board of Parole and authorized by California Governor Jerry Brown,” it reads. “The ruling, issued by three judges overseeing the state’s efforts to ease the overcrowding, gives California until February 2016 to achieve their goals. But, the judges said, the state has to make elderly inmates and those with serious illnesses eligible for parole immediately,” the article adds.

The fake report had tens of thousands of shares and “likes” on Facebook this week.

According to a disclaimer, Empire News is a “satirical and entertainment website.”  ...
