Cult leader and mass murderer Charles Manson is still alive at 83. He’s reportedly been hospitalized, but we don’t know any details about his condition.
Glenn revisited Manson’s horrifying crimes on today’s show. Manson led his cult members to commit nine murders in summer 1969 because he wanted to precipitate an apocalyptic war he called “Helter Skelter,” and he was convicted of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder in 1971.
After four decades in prison, Manson is likely at the end of his life.
“Now Manson may finally get the punishment he deserves,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Three letters were scrawled on the front door. P-I-G. As investigators approached, they realized the ink was human blood. The blood was the blood from Sharon Tate and her unborn child.
Tate had thrown a dinner party with her friends earlier that evening. She had no idea that her life would be over by the end of that evening.
Under Charles Manson’s instruction, members of his, quote, family invaded the Tate home and viciously killed everyone inside.
Then they sat down and had a bite to eat at the dinner table. One of them took a fork and stuck it into Sharon Tate’s belly.
The next night, Manson rode with his followers to the home of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca. They were also murdered.
Manson was originally sentenced to death, but in 1972, a ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state’s death penalty law at the time unconstitutional. So they’ve kept him alive. And California taxpayers have been paying for it.
His sentence was changed to life in prison, with — with the possibility of parole. He’s been denied parole 12 times. He’s crazy as ever.
But now Manson may finally get the punishment deserved. He’s 83 years old. He’s just been hospitalized. Sources now say it’s only a matter of time before he passes on.
Charles Manson will die in bed, content with living a long life, a luxury that Sharon Tate, her unborn son, and nine other victims of Manson’s insanity would never know.
Here’s hoping that the Grim Reaper comes, I don’t know, swiftly? Not too swiftly, painfully. And then Manson can start doing his time on his real sentence.
