If bearing audience to these women's feelings, my opinions or those of commenters offends you please do not read on.
No Rest for the Wicked
No Mercy Either
Charles Manson follower Susan Atkins has finally died. She has been sick with brain cancer for years.
This woman lived her life in the most ultimate of hells. Once given the death penalty, even proponents of this punishment have to realize that her life was a much worse punishment.
She constantly, year after year, asked for mercy and was denied.
On her death bed, while she lay with cancer eating away at her brain, she asked for mercy and was only reminded of her victims words some 40 years ago when she herself asked for mercy.
She did not ask for herself but for the life of her innocent, unborn child.
Susan told her that there was no mercy for her. No mercy for her child.
And Susan herself received none on her death bed either.
