Charles Manson caught with phone

2011-02-03 12:01

California - Cult killer Charles Manson has been caught with a smuggled cell phone for the second time.

Corrections spokesperson Terry Thornton said Wednesday that guards found the phone January 6 at Corcoran State Prison.

Manson previously was caught with a phone in March 2009.

He had been calling and texting people in California, Florida, New Jersey and British Columbia. He had missed calls from Arkansas, Indiana and Massachusetts.

Thornton couldn't immediately say who he'd been calling this time, nor how he got the phone.

Manson is serving a life sentence for killings including the infamous murders of actress Sharon Tate and six others in Los Angeles in 1969.

He faces a disciplinary hearing. The Legislature plans to consider a bill making inmates' possession of phones illegal.

    I say, give him life for this transgression. :)

    Even hardcore guys like Charles need a listening ear from time to time! ;-)

    That is why we should have the death penalty. If he had of been executed years ago, as I believe the punishment fitted his crime, we wouldn’t have this trivial nonsense now which is only taking up valuable time and money!

      So you believe in executing the mentally deranged? Who's next on your list, the physically handicapped?

      I needed to add IF the do these hideous crimes ... not just for the sake of it

      @Ixian. If this man was sick he would have been in a mental institution. He knew exactly what he was doing, and I agree, they should have given him the death penalty.

    Maybe he heard about Cell C 's new 4G and decided he just had to try it? Wonder if he's on BBM - Oh Charlie boy send me your pin!

    The people here that console with him should not pro-create!!

  • FuzzyStorm - 2011-02-03 13:12

    should l and let him have this access and then monitor it, maybe he will inadvertently lead thenm to other loonies.

    The Legislature plans to consider a bill making inmates' possession of phones illegal. shouldn't going to jail mean that you get stripped of all freedom and luxuries specially if you are a mass murderer?

      richard - 2011-02-03 14:03

      I agree.

  • NodrogBob - 2011-02-03 21:01

    He should have been stretched along time ago. What a wast of the US tax money keeping him alive.
