The code is finally cracked

The Grump's Book Review - Knocking out the Devil

Knocking out the Devil

The Jason Freeman Story

Some time ago I read a post about a book written by Charlie’s grandson, Jason Freeman.  Jason’s father was Jay White (born Charles Manson Jr).  He was the son of Charles Manson, and his wife Rosalie.

The book is available in paper, here or on Kindle at Amazon.

I must admit the only reason I bought it is I heard that there was a picture of Rosalie in it.

Of the 122 pages, the last 51 include match by match results of his MMA and Boxing Bouts, and religious testimony’s.

He had some drug problems in his younger years, and had virtually no contact with his father.  His parents were not married, Freeman was his mother's name. He loves his mother and stepfather greatly.  You will read about how his father dealt with the Manson saga.  Obviously not very well. After the suicide of his father, he wrote Manson a letter in jail.  He never responded. He claimed he just wanted to let Charlie know he is “Pulling the bloodline away from evil”.  He is married, and has five children, all living the Christian lifestyle and serving God.  So, Charlie is a great-grandfather!!

Overall, it is a good, well written, quick read.  The Christian parts are short and to the point.  He does not drag on like Tex and Sadie did.  If you are looking for any new info on Manson, you won’t find it here, but I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

By the way, Rosalie was a beautiful woman!
