Mass Murderer Charles Manson made headlines in the 1960s after running a cult, “The Manson Family,” which took part in brutally taking the lives of several people. Originally sentenced the death penalty that was later overturned in the early 1970s, Manson ultimately served the rest of his life in prison.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Manson was denied parole 12 times due to his behavior in the facility including possession of a weapon, assault, threatening staff, and other reasons.
Being forced to spend the rest of his life in a prison cell, his health recently deteriorated. The 83-year-old prisoner was hospitalized in January of 2017 for “severe intestinal bleeding,” requiring surgery.
Initially, he was listed in grave condition and was not expected to leave the hospital to return to prison. TMZ noted the sources’ exact words were, “It’s just a matter of time” and “It’s not going to get any better for him.” They were correct.
There was, of course, little sympathy for Manson. Many Twitter users, and even some news sources such as “The Daily Wire,” joked about him being “on his way to hell.”
