It was last summer that I wrote about Manson Family killer Susan Atkins' attempt to con and bully the State of California even further by obtaining a "compassionate" release due to her brain cancer. Today I thought about that and wondered if the Earth had become a better place, due to Ms. Atkins' passing.
While I don't see that Ms. Atkins has left our world, I did find that she was transferred to the Central California Women's Facility in Chowchilla in September (she had previously been incarcerated at a facility in Corona). I also read that in July of last year, it was estimated that Atkins' medical care had cost the State of California $1.15 million and the cost of guarding her was $308,000. Well, no wonder the state is broke. Between paying living expenses for people like Nadya Sullman and providing a cold-blooded, unrepentant murderer like Susan Atkins with treatment, medication and comfort, it's amazing California can still afford to pay its state employees.
This is my solution. Give Atkins an aspirin every 4-6 hours, make sure she stays hydrated and call it a day. In all honesty, this is what the military does if no limbs are missing or bones are broken. Susan Atkins butchered a woman who was nine months pregnant. I have no compassion for her whatsoever. Let taxpayer money go to provide medical care for someone who is deserving, someone who has worked to make our world a better place, someone who has contributed positively.
