simplify it

as much as i could there’s a lot of names that are

gonna be thrown your way so get ready

get ready to catch em

you get it i had to

simplify it a little bit as best as i

could without losing the overall

story charles manson here we go

charles maddox

was born november 12th 1934

so he’s a scorpio

in cincinnati ohio to his

mother kathleen

maddox who was just 15 at the time

of his birth

charles wouldn’t have a relationship with his

biological father

his mother kathleen

she ended up

marrying a man by the name of william manson

about four months before she gave birth to charles

so charles took the name

manson then when the couple separated in 1937

charles kept

the last name

tarnished that name

that’s for sure

as a way to make money kathleen

worked as a sex worker and participated in petty

crimes it was said that charles

mother wanted

nothing to do with him that at one

point when he was a baby

his mom tried to sell him as a baby

to a waitress

in return for a

pitcher of beer

to some people

that’s considered a fair trade

in 1939 kathleen was sent to prison for five years for

armed robbery

and during this time charles

was sent to live with his aunt and

uncle in west virginia

if i call him charlie

and charles just know it’s the same person

whatever charlie seemed to bounce around a lot

he didn’t really have a stable home but he

would visit

his off the grid uncle

who lived in the kentucky mountains from time to time

this uncle seemed to have like a lasting

impression on charles okay this

uncle he was an outcast

and would tell charles not to go to those

schools because they

brainwashed kids and

stuff you know

that uncle but

charlie said that he really liked him

he was different he was off the grid man

when charlie was nine he

tried to set his

school on fire

and that’s when

they sent him to reform

school between 1942 and 1947

charles mom she was out of prison

and he would stay with her

which he said

was like one of the happiest times from his childhood

then she couldn’t

and she wouldn’t take care of him anymore

and then she was arrested again

she wasn’t able to put him in a foster home so the

court stepped in and placed him in a

school for boys in indiana

the school was very

strict and often abused the boys and

after about 10

months he ran away to find his mom

but she really wanted nothing to do with him

and when charles

found her she was like

shit you found me

damn it so as you can probably gather

pretty loveless

childhood okay

great he spent a lot of his

childhood in different

schools for boys

he went to the

famous boys town

which we can do like a whole

story on this

place alone

okay but not

today but he went there

and charles

would run away he

would commit a robbery

then he would be sent back he

would go a different

school for boys

and repeat like it was just this

cycle then he got sent to another terrible

place it was the indiana boy school

where charles said that he

would be beat and raped by people in charge

he was heavily

abused throughout

these schools he attended he

tried to run away here but same thing

he would run away

commit a crime

like armed robbery

theft he robbed a gas station he was caught

a couple of times trying to rape or molest boys

then he would get arrested

and get sent back to a different school

it was just like a hot

mess when charles reached 20 years old in 1955 he

married a 17 year old waitress

named rose not long

after she was pregnant

the two of them

stole a car

and drove to los angeles

when he was there he

was caught and he

was sentenced to

three years in prison

while charlie sat in prison

rose she had her baby she

moved in with her family in los angeles

then she met another man and moved on

and they separated

charles manson had a baby

which is super sad cause

later on in life

i think he committed suicide

so when charlie got out of prison

he just found odd jobs

like pimping 16 year olds

stealing cars forging

checks stealing

where he could

he ended up getting

another 10 year sentence for violating his probation

this time though he

would only serve

seven and a half years

so this time though when he was in prison he

learned how to play guitar

and that’s when he

started to become

really into playing

music music is my passion

prison was rough

but it was like a home

to charlie and he was raised in there and it’s really

where he formed his outlook on life i mean

based off of

what he said he refused to be programmed by the

world or go

along with the

expectations of what was considered being a functioning

normal adult instead he

would just sit in his jail cell play his guitar

and write music

that’s not me trying to make him

sound all peaches and cream

nene rumor has it prison is like

super rough

and you don’t play around there

okay there are rules to be followed

so growing up in prison

and being in constant

fighter flight mode

i think just really like made him

freaking psycho

i’m sure i mean how do you come out normal

in this situation

in nineteen

sixty seven

charles was released from prison

and he actually

asked if he

could stay he didn’t

wanna go i mean what the hell was he

gonna do but this time when he left

prison it was actually a lot different for him okay he

was in san francisco in the mid nineteen sixties babe

things had changed

things had changed

it was the time of the flower child

hippies were thriving

in the hate ashbury

district of san francisco tons of

young adults were coming from all over the

place just coming out to the area to advocate for

peace and love grow

their hair out long

join a commune

and just like go on a spiritual journey man

but then lsd

was introduced to the

scene and now people were not only

going on their spiritual journeys

but they were just straight up

tripping balls that’s when it

started to turn more

aggressive because

drugs and money

and there was just like lots of journeys happening

anywho so charles

enters the scene

and he actually liked this because

these people were all about

peace and love we don’t need the

system sleep on the streets play

music do drugs

he had long hair and a guitar

it was just like charles cup of tea he fit

right in he

would play music

on the streets

people would gather around anyone

who met him said that he had this charisma about him

he just knew how to talk to people and make them feel

special important

and like heard

so charles he really just

started making friends one of his

first followers was

lynette from

and she met

charlie early on

and said that he was just easy to talk to

and his mind just really intrigued her then soon

after that he met

pat krenwinkle

at a mutual friend’s house

charlie was there playing

guitar people came over to hang out and pat and charlie

ended up like

really hitting it off and involving in some

sexual relations

she said that she just felt very

loved by him the way he gave her attention was

fulfilling she was young

she ran away from home she was desperate for

love and attention and charlie just gave that to her

and he seemed to do that with a lot

of different women

so charlie also had a man named tex

watson who joined

the growing family a way to get a man to stay with the

group and join in on the fun charlie

would offer

women to the men

in hopes to gain their

trust and get them to stay charlie

would like round up

more women sell

trade them for sex

he was really good at manipulating people

and he mentioned that it’s just something

he learned or like picked up in prison

the prettiest

girls he called the

front street girls and

these were the ones that

he thought were the most

attractive out of the

bunch and would lure

others to join

their group

like hey you

should come meet my friend charlie

he’s super cool and like you

would really love it and then we can like

do stuff over time

charles was attracting more and more people into his

group or what he called his family

he gained their trust and

gave them drugs had sex played

music it was

just like somewhere all they lost kids wanted to be

most of the

followers left home they had like nothing to

their name in

search of a new life anti system

peace and love

so finding a family

of people with similar interest

really kept

people there

i think that’s how a cold

starts in the summer of 1967

charles and his family

they left san francisco

got too much

they left san francisco in a bus

and they drove up and down the

coast just going from

place to place

which kept everybody

entertained you know they

weren’t getting bored

cause it was like new location cool

haven’t seen this rock before eventually

they made it to los angeles

where they spent most of

their time plus

charlie really

wanted to like make a name for himself playing music

in march of 1968 two of the family members

two of the girls

they were walking

along sunset boulevard in los angeles

i don’t know what was

going on like what they were doing

maybe they were trying to find new family members

so either way they’re just walking

and they’re hitchhiking

cause they’re trying to find a ride to

where they were all staying at

and dennis wilson ends up picking them up he’s from the

beach boys who

were a very popular group

still pretty popular right

you hear the

beach boys everywhere sometimes

especially like when you’re

shopping they always have the

beach boys playing but they were very popular

so yet like yeah

small world but

he picks these two women up

who belong to the manson family

to make a long

story short the

women tell him

about the man that they’re staying with

a spiritual

guru of some sorts you know

spiritual guru

his name is charlie

you should meet him

and then charles actually ends up

going over to dennis wilson’s home

they really

seemed to hit it off i mean they became like bffs

okay so then they end up

spending like more and more time together

and then soon the

whole manson family

ended up moving

in with dennis wilson and like his nice ass

place they are living with him doing drugs playing

music writing

music recording

music together

it seemed like charles manson was on his way to

becoming a beach boy

dennis wilson really wanted him to be a part of the

group but some of the

other beach boys they

just didn’t like him

they refused to work with him

some members of the

beach boys were telling dennis

like hey you

need to get rid of this this guy like he’s not good

we’re just getting

all sorts of bad vibes you need to drop him

all he wants to do is

party do drugs like he’s just not good for you

the manson family

ends up getting kicked out of dennis’s

house and they end up cutting

ties with one another

it’s more complicated

than that but for the most part that is what happened

the beach boys song bluebirds over the mountain

was originally a song written by charles manson

that the beach boys recorded and didn’t credit him on

but charles says that was his song

okay and they didn’t credit him on it

so charles is pissed obviously

while they were living together

charlie met a well

known music producer

named terry melcher

charles knew that this producer

had altered his music

and honestly just hated him

he hated charlie because

he just didn’t like him they had issues and then he

ended up stealing his

music and altering it and

using it and not crediting him

so charlie is obviously very pissed off and held a very

nasty grudge

against this producer

and there really wasn’t anything he

could do about it

terry is important so remember terry

august of 1968

susan atkins who was like a longtime family

member at this point

found the family a new home

it was an old western movie set

which had been turned into a writing stable

it was owned at the time by an 80 year old half

blind man named george spawn

they find this

place they think it’s perfect

great the whole gang moved in

great location

for a cold honestly

so soon after a

woman by the name of

leslie van houten

she joined the family

and they all stayed in that old torn down movie set

spawn ranch

it was said to be all

fun and innocent

they spent time

play acting

movie roles kind of like summer camp with your friends

so it was said when they were there

it was like time didn’t

exist there was no time

they were all just living in the moment

the now they

would pretend

every day was halloween

and they would

dress up in costumes play

different roles and it was just a way for them to get

out of themselves let

their ego go and their

world views

and by removing

their egos it would

allow charlie

in and change

their views on the

world charlie

would tell family members

that society was corrupt and that they needed to forget

everything they’ve ever

learned i can talk

charlie would tell them that he was the

noble one the one with all the answers and only he

knew the truth

so the family they

would drop acid all the time and they

would do different exercises together

while tripping balls you know he

would make everyone sit around like in a circle

and he would be in the middle and

he’d have everybody

focus on him

he was the focal

point he would also tell them to get rid of

their past forget

their mothers and fathers

and that they needed to die in

order to be rebuilt

some of the members said that it’s

funny we can

laugh but it’s not funny

it is funny

because some of the members

said that like he even reenacted the crucifixion

while they were on lsd

and because they were

tripping it was like oh my god

jesus is melting

that’s jesus bro

so this group they’re cut

off from society in the middle of nowhere doing drugs

every day with the same people

brainwashing seemed to happen

charles his

philosophy was the notion of oneness

and the power of love but over time his

he got more and more paranoid

his messaging

would become darker

there was no

right or wrong in life

death and life were the same

thing not to fear it

death was actually a welcoming

to a better life this is what he’s telling them

it was said it got to a

point where charlie stopped letting anybody

leave the compound without his

permission they

weren’t allowed to listen to any

music except

for the beatles

the moody blues

or charles’s own music

like i mentioned in last

monday’s upload in 1966 there was like a

bunch of riots

going on protesting

against the war in vietnam

so charlie was following this but

wouldn’t allow his members to know

about what was going on

but he seemed to be

becoming paranoid that there was

going to be a race war happening soon

now this is

where things get

tricky and people

have different versions for what happened next

there’s the helter skelter version

which i’ll explain

and then there’s like the drug deal gone

wrong version

that i personally

think is what really happened

i don’t think the helter skelter

doomsday cult

thing was a

thing i’ll explain i know


oh my god so july nineteen sixty nine

um one of the followers was text his name was text

remember okay cool

so he was also a drug dealer

while living on the ranch

it was said that

tex went to go to a deal with another dealer

named bernard

crow in los angeles

text was buying a lot of drugs from this guy like

twelve hundred dollars worth

text didn’t have all of the

money but he told bernard

hey i’ll take the drugs get the rest of your money

and then come back and pay you

cause you know that always works bernard was like

how do i know you’re

gonna come back

and text was like

here’s my girlfriend i’ll have her

stay with you she’ll stay here with you as collateral

he agrees and then text takes off

text never comes back

yeah i know what to do so his

girlfriend is probably like yeah don’t

worry he’s coming back he’s a man of his word he

would never just

leave me here

and then like

twelve hours go by and she’s like

yeah maybe he got sight

tractor something he loves me he’s coming back

he’s not coming back is he

no okay so some time passes bernard

still has the

girlfriend hostage mind you

and then he calls up text

now text his real name was also charles

but everyone called him text

so bernard calls

the number to reach text

at the compound or whatever bernard asks for charles

because he means text

but it was actually charles manson that was on the

other end yeah

so bernard is like i want my

money where’s my

money bernard then said that if he didn’t get his

money he was

going to burn down the

ranch and rape all his women

so charles manson

then decides

to take matters into his own hand

he goes down to meet with bernard

walks in they

fight charles

shoots him charles grabs the girl

and then he

leaves him behind

bernard actually survives but charlie

doesn’t know that he

thinks he’s dead

charlie starts to get really paranoid

because he believed that bernard belonged to the

group black panthers

and that they were

going to come

after him and his family

for what he did

i mean this guy bernard was like a bigwig drug dealer

once someone got word it was like

it was gonna be over for him

so charlie starts warning the family members that the

black panthers are

going to kill them

and that they need to

learn how to

fend for themselves

but he’s just getting really paranoid

and hopes that nobody finds out what he did

he decides that

he needs to get the family members to commit crimes

and then make them complicit in the

crimes that he had committed

i feel like criminals always overcomplicate things

yeah it’s just a personal opinion though

but i feel like it’s very true

due to his growing paranoia that the

black panther

group was coming

after him charles enlisted a

motorcycle gang

called the straight

satans for protection

over the compound

in exchange for protection

charlie promised him or them

all the girls they wanted here’s

where i’m gonna

throw some names at you but it’s fine

just follow it

so one day the

biker guys wanted drugs they want to do some drugs

and one of the family members his name was bobby

he said that there was a guy

named gary hinman

who would be able to

supply them with some goods

so the biker

guys give bobby some money

and he goes and he gets drugs from gary

so the biker

guys they do the drugs

afterwards they’re pissed

they’re pissed because the guys from the straight

satans said the drugs were bad and they wanted

their money back for being ripped off

these guys were growing more and more

angry threatening to kill people if they didn’t get

their money back

so charlie told

bobby and two

other family members

mary brunner and

susan atkins to go with

bobby get the

money back from gary heinman because

he didn’t want any problems with the biker guys like

you didn’t want to be on

their bad side charlie already believed that the

black panthers were

after him he didn’t want the straight

satan’s after him either so the

three of them head out and when they get to gary’s

house they have like a gun and

stuff they’re threatening him

they’re like we want our

money back the drugs were fake whatever

gary refused to give them the

money back saying

that the drugs were good and he didn’t even have the

money cause he already

spent it and then things

seemed to escalate

escalade things

escalated and then

bobby mary and susan

stayed at gary’s

house for like two days they had him tied up

they’re trying to reason with him to give up the

money or give them something valuable that he

could give to the straight

saints in lieu of the

money at some

point there was

a bit of a struggle that happened

and one of the girls ends up calling charlie manson

to let him know that gary wasn’t cooperating and then

charles was like okay

right there

bobby regained

control and then soon

after gary agreed to sign over his cars

which were worth

about a thousand dollars

he could use the cars and the little

money so they’re making this

agreement cool then

this sounds like a cheesy

movie but this

yes then charlie comes busting through the door

he has a confederate

knife bust through the door

cut scary across the face

starts threatening him

bobby was like okay

that was really unnecessary you know

but what do we do now

we can’t just let him go he’ll rat us out

bobby ends up killing gary

because that was really his only option

so he takes the

knife and he just kills

gary so before leaving gary’s

house bobby

wrote on the walls and gary’s

blood he drew a

black panther paw print

along with the words political piggy

and he did this because

it was recommended to him

by charles manson because he wanted to

throw off investigators and

make them believe that the murder was related to the

black panthers

tying back to the bernard

crow shooting like

maybe they would tie

those two together not long

after though

bobby was pulled over

and arrested in one of gary’s cars

and he was being

charged with the murdy murdy and

he was being

charged for the murder of gary heinman

because he did it yeah you know so yeah it makes sense

bobby was a family

member though

okay the group

stood up for

their family members

so when he was arrested

charlie started getting really paranoid that

things were

gonna lead back to him

he knew that they had to get

bobby out so the

group decided to kill

again they would

stage it to look like a

copycat murder leading investigators to believe whoever

did it also

probably committed the gary

heinman henman murder

which meant

bobby wasn’t involved because he was in jail

so it would make them

think that they had the wrong guy

and then bobby

would be set free

flawless plan totally makes sense

nobody will know

again criminals always overcomplicate

things but this is what they’re

thinking so back at

spawn ranch charlie and tex

they were like trying to come up with a plan

who do we hate that we can kill

and create like this copycat scene

hmm terry melcher

remember the

music producer

yeah so charlie had been to

terry’s home at one

point when they were living

with the beach boy

so he knew where

terry lived

august 9th 1969

in a big old

house on celio

drive in los angeles

is where actress

sharon tate

who was eight

months pregnant

and her movie director husband

roman polanski

were renting

terry melcher’s home talk about

wrong place

wrong damn time

now on this night

roman was in the uk

and sharon was at home with her friends

having like a little get together just hanging out

along with sharon

was her ex boyfriend

or fiance and

friend hair stylist

jay sebring

iconic hair stylist

also coffee heiress abigail

fulcher was there

yeah folgers in your cup queen yeah

she’s there abigail’s boyfriend was also there

wojciek frikowski

he was there too

there was also a man

named steven parent who was

visiting the home taking care of the property

so the family members texts cat

linda and susan

get into the car and they

drive out to the home charles

tells them to do

everything that text says but

doesn’t tell them like what it is they’re doing

except for tex he’s the only one that knows when they

arrived late at night

tex went onto the property first

that’s when he

came across steven parent who was like

literally in his car like it looked like he was

just put the keys in

something because he was

about to leave and go home

poor steven he was shot

by text four times

so then after that text

goes back to the car and told the girls like come on

come with me we’re

going inside now text

was able to get into the

house through an unlocked door

and let the others in

and then in the living room

tex was trying to deal with jay

sebring who he came across

first and he had him on the

floor he was trying to tie him up tex asked

susan to go and

check the back rooms and like

bring everyone

into the living room

so tex and jay are in the living room and they’re

starting to

fight because jay is trying to run away escape but

sadly tex shot him and killed him

it was said that

hex was the one who killed most that night

but like they all participated in

their own ways

it was just a really gruesome

scene there was

blood everywhere

everyone was brutally murdered

it was just

horrifying then in sharon

tate’s blood there was the word

pig written on the front door

they were trying to tie it back to the previous murder

in total the

victims had been

stabbed a hundred

and two times

and they had gunshot

wounds so it was like a little much like they’re dead

we get it now many believe that

this was some kind of satanic ritual type of killing

and when the

media got a hold of it

it was a massive

story hollywood

was terrified celebrities were

thinking that like someone was gonna come

to them and kill them next

it’s believed charlie had the family members

involved in the tape murders to prevent

them from talking to police

about the bernard and gary

murder cause now

their hands were dirty too

so they were hoping that back at the

crime scene

the police would be making the connection

between the two murders

unfortunately the police

never made that connection

they didn’t connect the twos so

great plan worked

great so the next night

another murder was in the works

this time it

would be at the home of a grocery company

executive named

leno and his wife rosemary la bianca

now this was

being like a very different section of los angeles

this night though

leslie van houten

she went along to

prove her loyalty to charlie and the family

she said that before

going she knew people were

gonna die but she

wanted to prove herself charlie

leslie pat tex

linda and susan all

cramped into a car

and they drove around for a

while before they stopped at the

house that they were

gonna hit next

charles went in

first and tied up the la

biancas then he left

so the rest of the gang they came in

they’re struggling

with the law biancas the two girls were

going to kill

the law biancas but i

think they chickened out

and they asked

tex to come in kill them

killed the husband and wife

and then the girls took the knives and

stabbed them and like cut them up and carved in

their body because

texas said that they needed to do something

again it was a pretty brutal and

awful scene

anything bad you can imagine that was it okay

that was the scene

it was not nice

the lapiancas had been

stabbed a total of 67 times once

again they used their

blood and they wrote

death to pigs rise

and helter skelter

on the walls and the fridge

helter skelter

which they spelled wrong

first of all

great was referencing the beatles song

helter skelter

from the white

album the only

thing that they were allowed to listen to on

spawn ranch

charles believed the

music and cited a race war

and murder because the beatles were huge

they thought that


would make this connection

because they

are trying to make it look like a copycat murder

so they wrote in the

blood again

they’ll connect it with the sharon

tate once sharon

tate connects to the gary once

gary one leads back

to the drug dealer

so it was said that the reason they killed

again was because they didn’t realize that the

tate murders were

going to become so big

cause it wasn’t supposed to

it was just supposed to be

terry melcher there

but it was all over the news

and everybody was talking

about it and

that wasn’t the plan

so they needed to hit

again the reason that charlie picked the la

bianca’s home because it may seem

super random

but it wasn’t

random not at all

like mentioned

earlier charlie

he held a grudge and he

never forgot when you did him

wrong the law biancas they

lived next door to a guy

named harold true

we don’t need to know him but he was there harold

was a friend to charlie and the family

they actually stayed at harold’s

house for a bit of time the family

again they like moved in

to harold’s house

and we’re living there for

some time but i

guess they were causing a bit of a ruckus

and the neighbors called the cops

which led to charlie and the family having to move out

who were the neighbors

the lobbyangas of course

that’s why he decided to kill them that

night because he remembered that

and because they

needed another copycat murder also charlie remembered

that the law biancas liked gamble and had lots of

money money

that he needed to pay back the straight satans

that’s his plan

so over the years charlie had said that like he was

never there at the lot biancas

in interviews

and what not but everyone said he was the one who

drove to the lot bianca

house and that

he went in for a bit for a period of time well inside

after tying the lot biancas up charlie

went and grabbed

rosemary la bianca’s wallet

then waited

for the gang back in the car

once the murders were complete

charlie then took them to a

house in venice

beach which was

right next to the straight

satan’s clubhouse

mind you it was like 4 am

and there’s many speculation as to why they went there

some say it was to

commit another murder but many believe it was actually

because charlie went there to give the straight

satans the money

owed and regain

their protection over

spawn ranch

which makes

sense because he just got the

money from the la biancas

back at spawn

ranch there was a ranch hand

named donald shay

who was a hollywood

stuntman actor

but also helped out around

ranch now he didn’t like the family

he thought they were trying

or they were taking advantage of the

old man who owned it and on august 16th 1969 26 members

of the family were arrested on suspicion of auto theft

it didn’t last long though

due to like some

paperwork errors they were all released by

but because of this

charlie thought that the

ranch hand donald

tipped them off to police

and when they got back to the ranch

donald shay

was never seen

again just vanished poof

gone so now that they’re on police’s

radar they wanted somewhere else to live and the

group ends up moving to barker ranch in

death valley

which was like an old mining property

that was pretty cut off from the world so

they were there for a bit

then on october

12 1969 officers

raided the barker

ranch on suspicion of auto theft again

24 members were arrested this time

now they didn’t even know that

these people were involved with the murders

going on they were just there you know auto theft

you’re arrested

auto theft let’s go now this time though

while in jail one of the family members

susan atkins

she blabbed

she told her cellmates that she

and the family were involved with the murder of sharon

tate i don’t know why i’m

whispering but i am

she was kind of bragging

about it like oh you’re looking at her

i’m the one who was involved

based off interviews

with the cellmate

yes i like went down a

rabbit hole anyways

the cellmate

tells investigators this information because

hello i want a lesser sentence

i’m gonna rat on you

which they did and this my friends is

where it all just falls

apart goodbye

december 1969

four months

after the crimes

a lot of things happened in between here

but it’s like nothing

but really makes a difference it’s just bullshit

charles manson

and five members were being

charged with the

tate and la bianca murders

on june 15th 1970

the trial starts

charles charlie

mr manson he

asked for a

permission to

serve as his own attorney

but he was denied

they should have let him

know they shouldn’t have he was denied

susan atkins gave a testimony and described in

great detail what happened the

night of the

tate murders

she had like little to no emotion

and showed not a lot of remorse

it was very awkward

they didn’t want to use her as a witness

because they thought it

wouldn’t help the helter skelter

story that prosecutors were

going to focus on

which we will get into

so they ended up not

using her they’re like you’re a bad look

get out of here

now the main problem was that charles

manson was not at the murder

scene during the

tate murders

and did not participate

in the law bianca murders

so they had

to get him with circumstantial evidence and by the law

of conspiracy

i know confusing

they didn’t have any

proof that he did a damn thing

so prosecutors had to get creative

and come up with a

storyline that

would convict

charles manson

now hollywood was going

crazy over this

trial and day

after day charlie

would come into

court all of this was like being filmed for tv

news and just he

would just spew

some wild shit

he was playing to the courtroom

he knew it was a

circus and he was feeding into it

charlie would have like constant

stare offs with the camera because he knew that people

would be like oh my god what a

freaking weirdo

and then he

would also do it to the jury members

he would just stare at the jury

and they just made them feel extremely


he was just

aggressive intimidating

and very strange

but the media was loving it

they’re like oh this is just bizarre

we’re in so

every day charles

manson and the

three girls

they would meet

and they would discuss like what they were

gonna do in

court that day

for example one day he wanted them all to

stand up and hold hands and some

symbols another day he wanted them to get up and scream

or he wanted

them to sing his songs when they were walking into

court it is creepy it is

weird and i

think he just

loved that it was just a

weird performance that nobody asked for

so the rest of the manson family members

were banned from

court proceedings for disrupting the

court so they

moved out to the hallways

and they also kept a vigil

outside to show

their support charles

carved an ex

into his forehead at one

point to symbolize his removal

from society

and then the

three girls did the same as well

eventually down the line he turned that x into a

swastika so that’s

great seems like a real hoot

a guy wow so

again tv news went wild everyone went wild

girls gone wild it was just all wild

so here’s where the helter skelter

story came into play

and is what charles manson is really remembered by

nowadays they go hand in hand

the prosecutor

his name was

vincent bugle oski

whatever the hell now vincent was said to be a very

great prosecutor

he was a known

womanizer and he

loved attention

he brought in another guy with him

during the court proceedings who

everyone thought was like his assistant or extra help

but really the guy was there to help vincent

write a book

on the case

which he didn’t mention to anyone

until after the fact

so he brings in the sky this guy is taking notes

gonna help him

write a book

the helter skelter

story that was presented in

court was that charles manson

formed a cult

filled with

people who didn’t want to be a part of society

okay facts charles

wanted to be a rock star

he was obsessed with the beatles

the beach boys

through the

beach boys is how he came to meet

terry melcher

who stole his

music and represented the establishment

to charlie charlie

hated the establishment

he believed that the beatles

were predicting a race war through hidden messages

in their songs

and he needed to prepare

for this race war charles


his members in believing that there was a race war

about to take place

order them to kill gary

hindman then

order them to kill

white people and frame

black people by telling his followers to kill whoever

lived at terry’s house

then charles picked another house at

random to attack

the la biancas and

ordered everyone to be killed

the plot was to frame

black people

by having his followers

leave messages

and lines from the beatles

white album at the

crime scene

this would then lead to a race war

once the race war

started charles and his family

would hide in the desert

until it was over

charles would come out of hiding

and become leader of the

black army and rebuild the

world this is

in summary is the

story that convicted

charles and gained vincent

fame and fortune

for selling his best selling book

helter skelter but we’ll get into that too this whole

story was created

which i think there are bits and

pieces correct in there like charles manson

do not be mistaken he was

super freaking racist

disturbed man

this reason

as to why charles manson committed

these crimes made for a shocking

story but most of all

it set charles up

for first degree murder

and conspiracy

under california law

without the helter skelter storyline

there was no evidence that charles wanted to make

these murders happen or even

participated in them

so the only way to get him convicted

was by enhancing

what happened charlie’s plan to

start a race war

would make him responsible

for all crimes committed

if the prosecution mentioned to the court

the auto thefts the drugs

shit the bernard

killing then the helter skelter

story or whatever it just

wouldn’t make

sense so they didn’t even introduce

any of that they didn’t even try to explain the

whole gary killing either

it really didn’t

because how does that fit in with the doomsday

cult mentality it didn’t which

in court could lead

to reasonable

doubt possibly leaving jars to think hmm

maybe it had to do with a drug deal gone bad

and not a cult

maybe charlie technically didn’t do anything

and the prosecution did not want that

their job was to get charlie arrested

plus he is a danger to society so they needed to

like how do we make sure he gets locked up

so this whole

story just blew up

everybody was talking

about helter skelter

how terrifying it all was

and then that became the

story that really

defined this

whole everything

charles manson

and many believe that it

wasn’t even true the

court hearings were a hot mess

just gonna glaze over it they were a hot mess

in the end though

on march twenty

ninth charlie was

charged with

seven counts of

first degree murder and one

count of conspiracy to commit murder for the

deaths of abigail

void check steve sharon jay

leno and his wife

rosemary guilty

goodbye pat

leslie and susan

they were also

charged with murder

and the jury had called for the

death penalty

for all four

defendants the

three girls

were like i’m not trying to say that there wasn’t like


happening in a cult

mentality charlie’s

followers were like ride or die for him

these girls were like

loyal to him they were like he is

everything to us

and they just did

everything that he said

i just don’t want that to get lost because i

think that’s very true

so they go to prison

goodbye now in 1972 the supreme

court overturned the

death penalty

so sentences

were turned into

life imprisonment charlie said at the end of the trial

all they really accomplished was sending him

right back to

where he started

and he really wasn’t

wrong there now

throughout the years most of them have done interviews

behind prison

walls or whatever

where they have showed

remorse for what they’ve done

except for that one girl she was like really

weird who was it

susan i think it was susan

i think as they got older

they just kind of came to

their senses

not so much charlie though he

never never

owned up to his part

in the choices that they made

he would say over and over

again until his

dying day that he

never told them

what to do that they made

their choices on

their own and he had nothing to do with any of it and i

think that’s why charles manson remains so infamous

because he never actually did anything

he got these

other people to commit the

crimes for him he

never got his hands

dirty but he did

shoot the bernard guy so he did technically

sorry also the

whole like helter skelter

doomsday cult story

added to it people just love cults

and so it just

took him to this iconic infamous

being i guess

in 1974 vincent

booglo glowy

the prosecutor

well he was now an

author because he released his book helter skelter

which was based off of the manson case

and it became the best

selling true

crime book in his

story history

selling over

seven million

copies so it brought him

great success

vincent was just writing

the wave a lot more

things happened but this

video is already

super long so yeah

but everyone remained and some

still to this day

remain in prison

leslie van houten she was sentenced to life in prison

she’s 68 now and she’s been denied parole

numerous times

susan atkins died in prison of

brain cancer

in 2009 pat

krenwinkle is now 73

and still in prison

she’s been denied parole numerous times as well

tex watson tex was like

the most fucked up out of all of them okay like he was

really crazy

but he’s 75 now

and he’s still in prison he’s been denied

parole numerous times as well

but he has become a born

again christian

and runs a christian outreach site from prison

linda kasabian

i didn’t really talk

about her that much but she was involved i’m

assuming that she came from

money because she got a good attorney

okay she was

charged with nothing

she was there the

night of the

tate murders

as the lookout

and she also helped like clean

and dispose

of the weapons and whatnot

but she was

charged with nothing because she

was considered a star witness for the prosecutor’s case

against charles manson she told them

everything they wanted

and then afterward she disappeared

changed her name she’s like

bye linda sent

a couple of interviews

since this whole thing like

later in life

and you can

find them on youtube and her face is always like

blacked out

cause she doesn’t want anyone know what she looks like

she kind of has meth face

and that’s not me trying to be a dick

i don’t really

blame her for doing meth

like come on just tell your truth

been a hundred years

bobby remember bobby

in the very beginning he killed gary heinman

he’s 71 now

and he’s still in prison

yeah he was convicted for murder for

killing gary so he’s

still in prison

another family member

steve grogan

we didn’t talk

about him but he was

charged for the murder of donald

shay the spawn

ranch hand that went missing yeah well

steve was charged

but steve was

granted parole

after serving 15 years

for donald’s murder

he was allowed his freedom

after telling authorities

where donald’s body had been disposed

lucky him i

guess you know charles manson remained behind bars

until the age of 83

and then he died on november 19th

2017 in prison

oh my god not long

after his birthday

like a full circle

but he had a

heart attack or something

i don’t know

he needed to go

goodbye he was just ugh

exhausting i

watched so many interviews with

this dude he just talks in circles but people find him

absolutely fascinating

he says nothing really

he just talks

i couldn’t take it anymore

charles manson wasn’t a god or

jesus like figure he was just an

odd little man who was abandoned by his parents

who wanted attention and validation

and was just filled with hate and did terrible things

charles manson

has so many fangirls and guys

or did i mean people love the guy

and they believe that

he was 100 innocent and didn’t need to be in prison

but what i don’t

think these

morons realize

is that maybe he wanted to be in prison

maybe it was his home

i mean look what happens when he’s out

nothing good like they were

fighting so hard for him to be proven innocent

it’s like babe babe

no we don’t need that no there

are so many people out there who idolize this guy i

i just will

never understand it’s so bizarre

i’ve said this before and i will say it

again get better

idols there are so many

great people out there who have done amazing

things why idolize someone who’s just fucking

weird with a

swastika on

their forehead you fucking morons

i think it is fair to say

that charles manson had a very difficult life

and now he’s dead the end

that is the

story about charles manson

i told the other version

drug deal gone bad

but there’s

a lot of people and a lot of stories and versions

about the elders

skelter were in

it involves the doomsday cult

after this week of binge

watching freaking

everything that

had to do with charles i just personally believe that

the doomsday

cult wasn’t the

thing i think it was just a drug deal gone bad

either way they needed something

to prosecute him on and they had to create some kind of

story to get them

because if they didn’t then he

would have been out

and they didn’t want that

if they did do that is that morally

right i don’t know

i’m just someone on youtube in a box

anyways it’s

still all sad though because they were like really

murdered like really

really murdered

if you made it all the way to the end

congratulations i love you and

appreciate you

you’re the best wow you’re my best friend

i hope you guys have a wonderful rest of your day my

voice hurts

i think i lost it let me know your thoughts down

below and who you want me to talk

about next week but

other than that

i hope you have

a wonderful rest of your day you make choices bye
