    (CNN) -- The president she once pointed a gun at has been dead for nearly three years, and her longtime idol and leader, Charles Manson, remains in prison.

    However, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme is about to get her first taste of real freedom in more than three decades.

    According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Fromme, now 60, is set to be released on parole August 16.

    Fromme is housed at the Federal Medical Center at Carswell, Texas. ...

    I hope she got some serious psychiatric help in the last 34 years.


    Didn't she escape once from prison, got caught and sent back?

    Squeaky was Charlie's second in command. Even though she wasn't involved directly in the Tate-Labianca murders, in some ways she's scarier than Lesly Van Houten, who was involved. She probably was involved in the murder of that lawyer(Ronald Hughes?), though, and some of the other unsolved cases connected with the Manson family.

    Fromme was not granted parole until July 2008, Ponce said. She was not released then, however, because of extra time added to her sentence for a 1987 escape from the West Virginia prison, which occurred after her interview that same year. She was found two days later, only a few miles from the prison. At the time, prison officials said they were looking into rumors that Fromme escaped after hearing Manson was ill, according to news reports.
    From the above link.

    Bullshit. They should all have been put to death. :mad:
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    IIRC, Manson received the death penalty, but then California subsequently stopped using it.

    If the state of CA would execute criminals like LA and TX, there would not be an overcrowding problem in their jails. The Obummer wants euthanasia for the old farts so let's start executing the bad guys. What the hell is up with that.
