What if Manson had to endure this pain?

December 9, 2017 GMT

Editor’s note: This is a response to a commentary written by columnist Ron Jackson, which appeared in the Nov. 25 edition of the Daily Journal

“When it (Charles Manson’s death) happened, there was no real relief. He just died; peacefully, of natural causes, at age 83. That was it. What luck.″

Mr. Jackson, let’s use our imagination just for a minute. Let’s say after his death, he was strapped in a chair by his hands and his feet, unable to move or get free in any way. And let’s say that the button was pushed on replay and he was forced to watch the events of his life and the lives of those “seven innocent people who were thought not worthy of living.″

He ordered the massacre of those “seven innocent people who were thought not worthy of living″ but he did not witness the massacre. Now in his chair, he has to watch what happened from beginning to end and listen to the screams of pain those seven people were experiencing.

He also has to witness the young people he corrupted in both mind and body with his manipulation and how those lives have been damaged because of his satanic thinking.

Do you think Charles Manson is at peace now, Mr. Jackson?
