Sure, I think so. After all, he was on McNaughton's short list, and several experts agree with his nomination, as well as the mock trial.

I do not, however, say that the shawl fiasco helped his case.

It strikes me as a hybrid of Jules Verne and Evel Knivel-- with a dash of steam-punk and a pinch of carny side-show man.

I've read that he carved a "x" first, and then later turned it into a swastika.

Also saw today that a Neo-Nazi is trying to make sure Manson,'s dream of a race war becomes a reality.
Gah....

I just don't understand why Charlie wasn't locked in an asylum -- he seemed crazy enough for it! (I was in junior high when the murders happened, and only have a rudimentary knowledge of the case.)

Charles Manson dead at age 83

http://www.cnn.com/2017/11/20/us/charles-manson-dead/index.html
