The Manson Family. In 1969, on August 8, Charlie Manson told Family members at Spahn Ranch, “now is the time for Helter Skelter.” That evening the family, under the direction of Manson, would commit the famous murder of Sharon Tate, leading to other murders over the two day period.
The Spahn Movie Ranch served as the Manson Familys main home from mid-1968 until their arrests in October 1969. The 80-year-old owner, George Spahn, let Manson and his followers stay there in return for sexual favors from the women. (Fromme earned her nickname from the sound she made when the octogenarian owner of the Spahn Ranch pinched her thigh.) Fires in 2005 destroyed the long-abandoned property.
Manson, then 34, and a group of followers known as the Family were convicted for killing seven people, including Hollywood starlet Sharon Tate, who was more than eight months pregnant with husband Roman Polanski's son.
This picture shows a man holding a chainsaw. the chain saw is a tool but is being presented as a forceful weapon. the blood and rust on the blade makes it appear to have been used as a murder weapon. His clothes are very tattered and mucky this suggests he is not civilised and does not wash or get changed this could suggest he is in hiding or is running from something. His face is very distorted
charles manson august 16 1969 - a crazy serial killer and cult leader helped to end the tumultuous decade. Google him and read the story...it still makes me sick, don't even want to write about it. He looks too normal here, see the other picture I have posted of him.
