A Parole Board in California is deciding today whether a notorious killers should be released from prison.
We're talking about sixty year old Susan -- can't you remember that name.
She was a member of -- Charles Manson family.
She suffers now from brain cancer doctors say she only has six months to live.
But she's serving a life sentence in prison now she's requesting to be released a compassionate release -- lawyers call it.
She was convicted of -- murders including the actual killing a pregnant actress Sharon Tate eight and a half months pregnant back in 1969 now some members of the victims' families.
Are expressing their opposition to her bid for freedom with us now on the phone.
Sharon Tate's sister Debra Debra you're one of those who thinks she should stay in prison right -- And and why specifically.
She was condemned to die.
And and -- -- pie in the law's death penalty was overturned.
And state of California.
So she is already been shown.
Compassion -- that she's been able to -- live.
Get married twice and jail.
And I even had you had -- conjugal visits I guess while she was in jail actually did.
Conjugal visits as well.
So I do believe that she's already been shown enough compassion and I don't believe that.
She needs to be set free at this point in time I think that she should die in a hospital ward.
And to fulfill her obligation to society.
Your your sister begged her for her life she asked to be allowed to live.
At least for another couple weeks until she could deliver the baby that she was carrying it and Susan Atkins herself took your sister's life.
-- -- And she said very rudely that she didn't.
Where I can't say on the air but that she didn't give.
A darn about sharing or her baby.
And Vincent Bugliosi who prosecuted Manson family he is split with one of the other prosecutors but Bugliosi one of the one of the big names who came out of this trial.
He says he thinks that there is a time for compassion here and that they should let Susan at canyons.
Go somewhere else besides -- prison to die presumably in the next six months what he stated that.
I think that that's very interesting coming from a man that asked for the death penalty on these people.
38 years ago or 3036.
Years ago I do believe that -- he can't have it both.
Has the pain of it lessened for you at all not at all.
-- it has affected my existence and in the existence of my entire family.
Certain hands Debra Tate we will.
Let our viewers know what that Parole Board in Sacramento decides today about this emergency application compassion and application for.
For release from prison by Susan Atkins.
