People are EXTREMELY upset!
On Wednesday, Leslie Van Houten — one of Charles Manson‘s followers — was granted parole by the California board.
When the now-68-year-old was 19, she and fellow Manson Family members stabbed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca to death in 1969, a day after the murder of Roman Polanski‘s wife Sharon Tate and four others.
Governor Jerry Brown — who previously denied her parole in 2016 — has 120 days to affirm, reverse, or take no action on the decision.
When word broke out, Twitter EXPLODED with polarizing reactions! While some feel she has served her time, others feel a murderer should forever be locked up behind bars!
See all the tweets (below)!
Meh… Leslie Van Houten was young and exceptionally stupid back then, but the flow of time can change someone over decades. Let’s see.

If you’ve read anything about Leslie Van Houten and do not believe she should be released, you are not the brightest.

I’m assuming that “Leslie Van Houten” is trending b/c Trump appointed Manson├óΓé¼Γäós former disciple as the new WH press sec, which is an upgrade.
