The Manson Family. In 1969, on August 8, Charlie Manson told Family members at Spahn Ranch, “now is the time for Helter Skelter.” That evening the family, under the direction of Manson, would commit the famous murder of Sharon Tate, leading to other murders over the two day period.
talking2-myself: “My mother ran away from home at age fifteen and became pregnant by a man who was seventeen. I was born. The newspapers call her a whore, but really she was just like the flower children. I was born from love. I don’t blame my mother, because that is pointless. She would just blame her mother, and I suppose her mother would then blame her own mother. I don’t blame anybody.” — Charles Manson, 1970 http://www.vantiques.nl
