ATKINS DIES-NO COMPASSION IN THE U.S.A.!

Susan Atkins: 'Manson family' killer dies in prison after her 18 bids for parole were denied

Sharon Tate's murderer Susan Atkins has died in prison, suffering from brain cancer.
The 61-year-old is the first of the Charles Manson clan, who were responsible for the 1969 murder of the pregnant Hollywood actress, to die.
Her death comes less than a month after an American parole board refused to free her from jail on compassionate ground despite her terminal illness. She had been diagnosed with brain cancer in 2008 had a leg amputated and underwent brain surgery. It was her last chance of freedom and she was brought to the hearing on a trolley and slept through most of it.



THE STORY LEAVES A WEE BIT OF A SOUR TASTE IN THE MOUTH, DOESN'T IT?

That's the way the American are though DL. They would have electrocuted Megrahi without question.

Ach - I don't know. She showed no compassion for her victim - a pregnant woman. Why does she deserve compassion? But of course the question isn't what she deserves but the quality of out humanity.

If she had brain cancer, why did they amputate her leg?

Was it Dr Nick Riviera doing the surgery?

Because they couldn't amputate her head?

As far as I can remember they were all out of their heads on LSD or similar when it happened and Manson was the killer. I don't have any sympathy for her but there is a difference between sympathy and compassion.

Priceless, Conan.
