The Manson Family

Synopsis: If you think you know the story of the Manson Family, you are dead wrong. On a ranch outside of Los Angeles, the dream of the "Love Generation" is transforming into something evil. What was once an oasis of free love and acid trips has become ground zero for a madman's paranoid visions. An average group of kids, the "Family," become engulfed in a delusional world where torment and slaughter are considered the path to righteousness.Director Jim VanBebber (Deadbeat at Dawn) delivers a dizzying, rapid-fire vision of the sex and violence that unifies the misguided group, a group hell-bent on executing the brutal vision of its leader, Charles Manson. You've seen the story through the eyes of the law. Now witness it through the eyes of THE MANSOSN FAMILY.

You better wise up,

the time is gonna come

when all men will judge

themselves before God.

Itll be the worst hell.

The worst Hell on Earth.

Itll make Nazi Germany

look like a picnic.

And you gotta be ready

for that, right now,

right here right now,

just like that!

And thats where

were at all the time.

Whatever is

necessary, you do it.

When somebody needs to be

killed, theres no wrong.

You do it and move you on.

Theres a revolution

coming very soon.

Youve lit the fuse yourself.

Were gonna cut and

chop all you f*ckers up.

L.A. will burn to the ground.

Los Angeles will

burn to the ground.

Once again, youve judged

a reflection of yourselves.

We are what you made us.

And when your so betrayed.

[Unintelligible]

I dont know who

fired the shot.

I dont know who

killed the congressman

as far as Im

concerned I killed him,

you understand

what Im saying,

I killed him.

He had no business coming.

I told him not to come.

Die with a degree of dignity

Lay down your

life with dignity

Dont lay down

with tears and agony.

Theres nothing to death

Its like Mac said,

its just stepping

over to another plain.

Dont be this way,

stop these hysterics.

This is not the way for

people who are socialistic

communist to die.

No way for us to die,

we must die

with some dignity.

we must die

with some dignity

We will have no choice,

now we have some choice.

You think their gonna

allow this to be done.

Allow us to get by with this

[Unintelligible]

It has never been

done before you think.

Its been done by

every tribe in history.

Every tribe facing annihilation.

In the Amazon their

doing it right now

they refuse to bring any

babies into the world.

they save every child

that comes into this world.

Because they dont want to

live in this kind of world.

So be patient, be patient.

I tell you, I dont care

how many screams you hear,

I dont care how

many anguished cries,

Death is a million

times preferable

to ten more

days of this life.

If you knew what

was ahead of you,

if you knew what

was ahead of you,

youd be glad to be

stepping over tonight.

Death, death, death is common.

One week from tonight,

join me, Jack Wilson,

for a special edition

of Crime Scene.

Were gonna journey back to

August 9th and 10th 1969.

Were waiting for our

father to be set free.

Two nights of Murder

that sent terror

through Los Angeles

and ultimately, the world.

Judgment Day

is coming people!

Next week on Crime Scene,

were going to bring you face

to face with the evil few,

that forever poisoned

the Love Generation.

As I talk with the members

of Charlies Family.

Hear the jailhouse

confessions of Leslie,

the homecoming queen,

twisted by Charlie

into a knife wielding maniac.

Bobby, the unknown

lynchpin of the family

who committed

the first murder.

Sadie, now a born

again Christian,

once Charlies most

outrageous disciple.

Patty, a former

Sunday School teacher.

She found Jesus

Christ in Charlie.

And Tex, the former High

School football Captain,

who became Charlies

bloodiest butcher.

In Charlie they found a Daddy,

a lover, and a Savior.

And it only took his words

to ignite within them

a rampage of hate and Murder.

The actual killers.

Bringing into focus

for the first time,

their years as members

of Charlies Family.

Father cares, you can

tell in his voice he cares.

Oh, we did so many

drugs, and it made sense,

I mean we were sure

that it would work.

Hows your day Jack?

Well, shes up

for parole you know,

at the end of the year.

My parole hearings

are taped and broadcast.
