James Whitehouse Susan Atkins

James Whitehouse Susan Atkins

James Whitehouse informed a court that Susan Atkins will be dead by her next parole hearing.

James Whitehouse saw wife Susan Atkins, one of Manson killers, make her last final bid before her death Wednesday. It was denied.

The argument is that it’s costing the state millions to keep Susan Atkins alive in prison, and that we should show compassion to her as she dies. The arguments weren’t convincing enough, loosing Susan Atkins’s 13th attempt for parole since 1976.

Atkins appeared on a gurney during the hearing. Whitehouse said:

“I don’t know if she’s going to make it through that long. She is deteriorating.”

Atkins reportedly suffers from brain cancer, is paralyzed, lost ability to speak, and can’t feed herself. In the Tate killings, Atkin had said at a previous parole hearing that she did not have mercy for the pregnant actress and her child.

    Yes Jenny, she was responsible for choosing to do what she did. She could’ve said no, I’m not going to do anything like that; but instead she participated. Of course, she didn’t have to do something just because someone told her, she did have a mind of her own. It’s sad that she ended up where she did. I feel she could’ve made it different. She made some bad choices of course.

    I remember the Tate murders. It was devastating and unreal to say the least. I am a born again Christian. I believe Christ can change your life. However, Susan got the consequences of what she did. We all suffer consequences for the decisions we make. If she was a true believer she would have been forgiven, true, but she would also just accepted her fate in prison, knowing that was her punishment. Nothing could change the crime that happened. She was released, released to freedom, released from hate, released from suffering, released from judgement of these earthly crimes when she passed on. That was the best forgiveness she could get from God. A release, none of us can deny from her.

    I’m going to say something about all the people who think they are ‘ The good people.” Tell me where your tax money goes? Your damn tax money goes to fund wars that kill innocent children and people all around the world. Now, all you good people out there saying stupid things like ” Susan could have said no.” Now that you know you participate in the deaths of innocent people in the thousands, when are you going to say no. All of you are blind to your own delusions…Susan never said she was innocent, instead she showed us how sorry she was for what happened by helping thousands. Her husband was brought to her from God to show all of us forgiveness through love.
