…most likely anyway.
If you don’t know who Susan Atkins is, she was known as Sadie Mae Glutz to the rest of the Manson family. She was convicted of participating in the murders of five people in 1969, including Sharon Tate whom she stabbed 16 times and then scrawled the word pig over the door at the house that Tate shared with Roman Polanski.
In 1993 Susan Atkins told the parole board that Tate pleaded for her unborn child’s life as Atkins held her down and stabbed her.
Atkins has brain cancer and the California Board of Parole Hearings has been denied a compassionate release from prison.
Good damn deal. I hope she rots in prison. The only thing that would have been better would be if they had fried her sorry ass.

Rots in prison and burns in hell… She should have thought about all the shit she did before she did it…
Susan Atkins is where she needs to be. She was shown mercy when her death sentence was overturned. If she is as incapacitated as her lawyer/husband claims, one bed is as good as another to spend your last days. Although the state is picking up her healthcare, they would be doing the same if she were released. As an indigent individual with a terminal illness, she will be eligible for Medicare and Medicaid. She asks for compassion; however, she showed Sharon Tate no mercy as she begged for her life and the life of her unborn son. Regarding the abuse claims, if it did occur then she deserves sympathy for her victimization. However, there are many people who have been abused and do not go out and commit premeditated murder. Her religious conversion is between her and her Lord. I cannot judge that, but it is my personal belief that she is using her born again jailhouse religion to manipulate her way out of prison. Susan Atkins has had nearly 40 more years of life than Sharon Tate. While incarcerated she married three times. She had the privilege of bearing a child (who thankfully was taken away from her), and she was able to see him. That opportunity was denied to Sharon Tate. Susan’s son is now a grown man, and hopefully doing well. Sharon’s son never got a chance to grow up. No first day of school, no driver’s license, no high school and college graduation, now marriage, and no children of his own. I have not seen Susan Atkins take any responsibility for her horrific deeds. It is Charles Manson’s fault (he brainwashed me). It was the drugs.(therefore it wasn’t me), she blames everyone but herself for her actions. She also does not exhibit any genuine remorse either. Soon she will be standing before God. If she has His forgiveness, how wonderful for her (and I don’t mean this sarcastically). However, Susan is still accountable to the temporal powers here on earth. Life should still mean life. I have no doubt that the family will be allowed private time to say goodbye to her. My suggestion would be for them to have her buried in an unmarked grave. Her marked grave would be a magnet for the macabre, and they would also run the risk of the grave being desecrated by those who remember her victims and still despise this woman. I realize this is lengthy, but I was a young girl when this occurred, and I remember feeling so sick and frightened. Again I reiterate, she is where she needs to be.
I tend to agree with you (obviously).
People make their own decisions on what to do with their lives and Susan chose to do the things she did.
