    what irritated me is that sometimes it felt like the FBI guy conducted the interview in a way that made some of what rifkin said sound different than what he probably meant. like when they talked about why he did it and the control aspect. it wasn't even adressed further that rifkin felt like it wasn't about control for him (assuming he told the truth), the interviewer just said of course it's about control, period.

    I just spent the past hour or so reading through this whole thread - so interesting. The knowledge some of you have on these killers is admirable! I'm not much of a book reader, but I definitely have an interest in this stuff. I'm definitely open to any documentary/television special recommendations if anyone has any.

    I don't think that's how it works.
    It kind of is how it works though. Echoing what others said, she played a fairly "minor" role - with over crowding issues and the general disorganization of the corrections world, if she's spent all this time being a "model inmate", completing her program requirements and is entitled to advance for parole then well...she's entitled to go for it. Of course I'm not sure if she was a model inmate or has completed said programming, but I can't imagine they would say she's not a risk to public safety without merit.
    All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.

    manson family member van houten shot down for parole by cali guv

    7/23/2016 6:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


    Manson Family member Leslie Van Houten will not be a free woman despite a parole board recommendation, because the Governor of California doesn't think the public would be safe.

    Governor Jerry Brown said, "Both her role in these extraordinarily brutal crimes and her inability to explain her willing participation in such horrific violence cannot be overlooked and lead me to believe she remains an unacceptable risk to society if released."

    The California Parole Board determined the 66-year-old prisoner was fit for release and had been a model prisoner for years.

    But what she did back in the day was undeniably horrific. She was convicted of first degree murder for stabbing Rosemary LaBianca to death -- stabbing her more than a dozen times -- the day after the Family slaughtering 5 people in the Benedict Canyon area, including actress Sharon Tate.

    The murders were designed to start a race war in America.

    I guess the beauty products in prison aren't that good.

    Even without La Mer, she's been out of the sun for 47 years, so I was still expecting her to look less craggy.

    I think it's a testament of how good skin care has become. Her face is how I remember old people looking when I was a little kid. Plus I would imagine she's been stressed her whole life. What with killing people and the prison life. Not exactly relaxing.

    Her mouth area looks like she smokes, which would explain the horrible skin.

    She was by far the most attractive of the main Manson women, too. And looked pretty good up until more recent years.
