Charles Manson Is Dead… So The LA Times Decides To ‘Humanize’ Him
This is literally the dumbest thing I’ve read today!
This can’t be real … But it is!
Manson, though, was no devil but a human being, as his death makes clear. I don’t say that to soften or absolve him. But I don’t believe in demons; people are frightening enough. Indeed, to accept Manson as a person, to see him through the filter of his humanity, is to acknowledge what we resist: that he was perhaps not so utterly different from the rest of us.
WTH … LA Times!?

Uhh…he had human DNA. That’s about as much of a ‘human side’ as this guy ever had.

Repulsive, misguided headline. Do you really want clickbait that badly? Shame on you.
