Not impossible he'll get parole, but doubtful

There are some people who, due to their notoriety, will stay in prison until their last breath. All modern prison systems in the wealthier, democratic nations have the facilities for these people. They have whole institutions devoted to geriatric inmates.

In the case of this Manson Family guy, the law in California basically says that if he is safe to be around, and not a threat, then he should get parole. But no one person, no one doctor, gets to decide on weather or not the man is safe for society. So it goes up a chain and must be signed off on by the highest ranking executive which is the Governor. Many murders do get out, but as I said, the headline of "Governor frees Manson family member who tortured and killed a man" would be political suicide.

I believe in redemption, forgiveness, and the power of our medical and psychiatric systems to make people better. But as I said earlier, I'll shed no tears when someone like this must be kept in prison. That is sometimes the best arrangement.

Would assassins wait for him if he were released? Not necessarily. Squeaky Fromme has been out for years and has been okay, as some other ex-Manson people and countless other high profile killers. But I am sure this guy would always want to be looking over his shoulder.
