The Partridge family on lockdown.
I just reread Desert Shadows by Bob Murphy. This pic of Pat, Leslie and Sadie is very representitive of his description of the girls as exhibiting no awareness of the serious trouble they were in. He was completely flipped out by how far out they were. It is this type behavior which may be the main reason they can't get parole. Most people get nervous just going to court to pay a traffic ticket but not those three.
I agree. Murderers are paroled all of the time after serving 20-25 years. The behavior of these three girls during the trial probably cost them any chance for freedom than the actual crimes did.
That's so true. Not so much the crimes as all that singing and giggling. But doesn't this just totally prove they were knocked clean out of their minds?They can never get out from under the standard required of them, that they "take responsibility" and "show insight" for what they did, which means they can never truly explain what Manson was like and how their own personalities were erased and replaced. If they try to say this, then that is not "taking responsibility". It is idiotic, and worse, it means that no lessons can ever be really learned.Bugliosi is the worst offender. By insisting that Linda was "very different" to the others, and that they were intrinsically evil, the fact that this could happen to any unhappy alienated middle-class kid is not understood, therefore raising the chance for it to happen again.
