Infamous Mass-murderer Charles Manson Cost Taxpayers over $2 Million, Double the Cost of Execution

Infamous mass-murderer Charles Manson died Sunday at age 83, after being incarcerated in a California prison for over 45 years, according to CBS News

An article by Ed Leefeldt of CBS News on January 10, 2017 said that Manson’s incarceration cost California taxpayers over $2 million over the course of nearly 46 years.

Two million dollars is a conservative estimate, considering Manson was far from a model prisoner during his 45+ year tenure in the California prison system. That is the average for any prisoner for that long a sentence. Manson committed over 100 other offenses during his 45+ year sentence.

Convicts on death row who also have nothing left to lose by committing further crimes while incarcerated, cost an average of $90,000 more a year than the average inmate, according to one study.

Moreover, the report said that $2 MILLION is double what it would have cost to have him executed.  Really? Are they trying to tell us it would cost $1 MILLION for a little rope or a bullet between the eyes? California repealed capital punishment in 1972 as cruel and unusual punishment. What is cruel and unusual punishment is forcing taxpayers to house, feed, clothe and supply medical care for someone who should have been executed over 45 years ago!

This is just one example of the insanity of liberalism. Charles Manson is just one example of the problem. Think of how many more prisoners there are in the California penal system and multiply the dollars spent for people who will never contribute anything to society?

Cruel and unusual punishment is a farce when considering the crimes for which they were sentenced. The punishment should fit the crime, and in this case, feeding Manson to the sharks off of Alcatraz Island shouldn’t have been out of the question. It would have been far cheaper and more cost-effective.

The crux of the problem is the socialist system whereby parents are not allowed to discipline their children with corporal punishment. I am aware of one gentleman in Colorado who was a prison guard, no less. He grabbed one of his children by the shoulder, and and it left a slight welt. One of the children’s teachers at school reported it to law enforcement and they charged him with a felony of child abuse. 

When I was in preschool, my older brother and I, along with a couple of other neighborhood kids, got caught playing with matches. We almost burned down a row of outhouses behind a business in a small town in western South Dakota. (Yes, believe it or not they still used outhouses in the late 1950’s.) We got our butts spanked and it left welts.

We deserved it and we got it, and it was out of love for us, not an act of anger. We turned out just fine. None of us ever murdered anyone. Spare the rod (corporal punishment) and you most definitely will spoil the child.

Back in the 1960’s, famous atheist Madalyn Murray-O’Hair succeeded in removing all reference to God, the Bible, and the 10 Commandments from our public school systems. Along with that went any sense of moral right or wrong, and today we as a nation are paying for it.

I guess you could call it “poetic justice” that Madalyn Murray-O’Hair died a brutal death at the hands of a violent murderer who worked for her and had a long history of violent crime, including murder.

Let’s take this dialogue a step further. If we could turn back the hands of time, I can guarantee you that things would be different. We wouldn’t have the entitled brats running around as is the case with the ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter movement. We wouldn’t have the black genocide of abortion, which has resulted in millions of black babies sliced and diced like so much cattle for the slaughter. (Most of the abortions performed since Roe vs. Wade was enacted were to mothers of black children in the inner cities).

Yet those of us who oppose abortion are called “haters & racists.” For what, trying to save the lives of innocent black babies? If that’s racism, we’re guilty as charged.

We wouldn’t have mass slaughters of gun-related shootings. 

Rid this country of God-less socialism/communism and things will change. Outlaw socialism in every form, because it is an affront to the U.S. Constitution and everything it stands for.

Gun possession in the United States has nothing to do with hunting and everything to do with self defense.

We find it interesting to note that EVERY shooter in mass-casualty shootings over the past 100+ years was at one time or another a registered DEMOCRAT, a liberal “progressive.”  Not one of those shooters was at any time a member of the NRA. The answer of course, is to outlaw possession of a firearm by a Democrat, since Liberalism has been proven to be a mental illness. Where they think they are “progressive” is beyond my comprehension.

Now you can add Elliot Rodger, the next in a long line of mass murderers with mass murder on their minds.


  • Nidal Hasan: Ft Hood Shooter: Reg­istered Democrat and Muslim.
  • Aaron Alexis: Navy Yard shooter – black liberal/Obama voter
  • Seung-Hui Cho: Virginia Tech shooter: Wrote hate mail to President Bush and to his staff, registered Democrat.
  • James Holmes: The “Dark Knight”/Colorado shooter: Registered Democrat, staff worker on the Obama campaign, #Occu­py guy, progressive liberal, hated Christians.
  • Amy Bishop: The rabid leftist, killed her colleagues in Alabama, Obama supporter.
  • Andrew J. Stack: Flew a light airplane into IRS building in Texas – Leftist Democrat
  • James J. Lee: The “green activist”/ leftist took hostages at Discovery Channel – progressive liberal Democrat.
  • Jared Loughner: The Tucson shooter, who killed an Arizona judge and critically injured Democrat Congresswoman Gabby Giffords.
  • Leftist, Marxist. Democrat mass murder– Ohio bomb plot derps were occupy Wall Street leftists.
  • Harris and Klebold, the Columbine Shooters – families registered Democrats and “progressive” socialists.
  • Let’s not forget Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber
  • Bill Ayers: Weather Underground bomber – Leftist Democrat.
  • Lee Harvey Oswald: Socialist, Communist and Democrat – killed JFK…

So why are there no conservative NRA members involved in mass shootings? Easy enough to answer: They aren’t Liberals. Liberalism is a mental illness. If you want to stop mass shootings ANYWHERE, simply outlaw the possession of a firearm by anyone who has ever registered in a Liberal political party.

All the while, leftist Rosie O’Donnell thinks all gun owners should be sent to prison. Why is that? It is her buddies doing all the mayhem, and law-abiding gun owners who do the defending of innocents.

Register Democrat Liberal “progressive” socialists and communists, NOT firearms; and outlaw the possession or sale to anyone who is a Liberal.

Gerald is a 66 year-old grandfather of 4, firmly committed to restoration of the American Republic through education of the ignorant. 30 years of revisionist historians have dumbed-down the millennial generation. History or the lack of it, will be the downfall of the millennial generation unless our generation steps up and re-educates the illiterate, ignorant public. This revisionist history is intentional, part of the Marxist model. Over half of the Democrats in our nation's Congress are in reality registered Communists. This shall not prevail as long as I can do something about it.
