SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A California parole panel on Thursday recommended for the first time that Charles Manson follower Robert Beausoleil be freed after serving nearly a half-century in prison for murder.

Beausoleil, 71, was not involved in the most notorious killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others by the Manson “family” in 1969. He was convicted in the slaying of musician Gary Hinman that same year.

Hinman was tortured for three days, according to testimony at previous parole hearings, including when Manson cut his face with a sword.

1. Beausoleil needs to stay in prison. I hope Gov. Newsom blocks the parole.

3. If he hadn't been associated with Manson

4. At 71, he is starting to cost the prison system money (healthcare) instead

6. True. He's currently housed in a medical unit.

The crime he committed was 50 years ago.

5. I just watched a show about this a few weeks ago.

They almost cut the guy's ear off....keep them all locked up for doing these horrible things to innocent people. I believe this was over a drug deal gone bad. This animal shouldn't be allowed out EVER!
