Charles Manson
The trial of John Mason began in mid-June 1970. It was presided over by Judge Charles Older. The trial took place in the Hall of Justice in Los Angeles at the eighth floor. The judge appointed 2 jurors who would help in the case. Charles insisted on defending himself though he was assisted by a lawyer by the name Irving Kanarek. He was known for his frustration on witnesses and judges. The other lawyer who defended Charles was Ronald Hughes who was referred to as the hippie lawyer and was Leslie Van Houten’s lawyer.
Kanarek may have found some kind of record for arguments in the Manson trial. He objected a total ofnine times in the prosecution's opening remarks. By the third day of trial, he had authorized more than 200 objections when the media ceased keeping track of them. Regularly, Kanarek's objections were created in "shotgun" type, such as many recommended reasons that were completely inapplicable: "Leading and suggestive; no foundation; summary and rumour." Other periods his arguments were designed to impact the judge. For instance, he objected to Linda Kasabian's testimony by announcing, "Object, Your Respect, on the reasons this observe is not qualified because she is insane!" Kanarek also flooded the judge with activities, many of them novel to say the least, such as a movement to have "Mr. Manson covered up from evidence" as the item of an unlawful look for. Kanarek brought up eye-brows for asking unusual concerns, such as when he requested Kasabian (during his seven-day cross-examination after Kasabian's immediate declaration in which she exposed she had taken LSD about 50 times), Atkins was the first to give a testimony. She had been assured of a reduced sentence for giving her testimony as she was the first one to be arrested. However this offer was revoked after Atkins replenished her royalty to Manson.Individuals who realized them but…...

...The Notorious Cult Murder Charles Manson Raynette Andre ENC 1101 0B Mr.Newberry Date Due: May 4, 2011 Final Draft Raynette Andre Mr. Newberry ENC 1101 01B 4 May 2011 Charles Manson: The Notorious Cult Murder Charles Manson is a man who is famous for his notorious crimes; though he didn’t partake in them physically he did control others into doing the crimes mentally. Manson is still alive to this day, locked up in a jail cell for the rest of his life. Many people do not understand the significances of his crimes and how he affected hundreds of lives with his theories. He took the steps and controlled his follows by regulating: food intake, drug intake and what news they received from the ‘outside’. I chose this subject because many people do not understand how ill this world can be and how it has been. Hitler has been one of the few who has practiced controlling people with the steps stated above, and he was successful in his planning too. Another person is Bin Laden, who controlled people and they were willing to die for him, he mentally and physically controlled them, which made them believe that what they were doing was okay. I want everyone to be aware of people who do and say such things as Charles Manson does. In this paper I plan to make one understand that what is going on in today’s society has occurred before in the past but in different styles and more exact on who their targets were to be. These are clear signs that...

...Skill Level 1 The Amistad Trials A: With the Amistad Trials, there were no names mentioned for the defendants but there were fifty-three black men that were on board the Amistad that had managed to free themselves from their chains. They found a knife in the hold and they used it to take command of the ship and murdered the captain. B: The fifty-three Africans were arrested on charges of murder and piracy, and they were taken and held in the county jail in New Haven, Connecticut. C: The judge stated that the United States did not have jurisdiction over the murder and piracy charges because the offenses occurred in a Spanish ship, sailing in Spanish waters. They only gave this ruling because the Africans didn’t speak English. Once the Africans found an interpreter and told their horrific story to the judge. After that, the judge ruled that the Amistad Africans were "born free and ever since have been and still of right are free and not slaves." The United States attorney filed an immediate appeal, and the case of the Amistad was destined for the United States Supreme Court.

...a hundred years before [Atticus and Scout] started is no reason for [Atticus and Scout] not to try to win" (76). Atticus was demonstrating his courage by proving that no matter how hard things get, you should never give up, and that you should always fight for what you believe in. Atticus is shown as being courageous by demonstrating perseverance and standing up for what is right. Another example of how Atticus is courageous is when at Finch Landing, he explains to Scout that this time he knew that he was " Fighting [his] friends, and no matter how bitter things get, they are still [his] friends and this is still [his] home"(76). Atticus' explanation to Scout was important because he had to reassure her that no matter the outcome of the trial they would still have their friends and there home. Even with all the pressure to quit the case, Atticus was determined to go up against all odds to ensure that justice would prevail. Atticus was a courageous, determined, and compassionate man. Along with Atticus, Mrs. Dubose is another prime example of a courageous person. Mrs. Dubose demonstrated courage when she decided to give up her morphine addiction. Mrs. Dubose died a slow painful death and when she was on her death bed, Mrs. Dubose reminded Atticus carefully, " [Mrs. Dubose] was going to leave this world beholden to nothing and nobody" (111). In this situation most people would not have been able to tolerate the pain and would have given in to the morphine. Mrs. Dubose could......

...Family Few characters have gripped the eye of the American public as successfully as Charles Manson, and even fewer have ever been as effective as Manson in creating a cult following of eager people. Manson and his “Family” are the crowning achievement of a conservative America, rife with religious passion that merged with the heavy use of addictive drugs such as cocaine and LSD in order to synthesize a cult based on a skewed worldview. I argue that Manson, labeled as a social deviant from a young age, embraced this formal classification and successfully created a message that appealed to dysfunctional and otherwise outcast American youth. Manson and his Family originated in the turbulence of the 1960s, in which violence based on racial lines struck many American cities. Primarily focusing on the conflict between whites and blacks, the outbreak of racial violence in the latter part of the decade convinced Manson that an apocalyptic war between the two races was inevitable. Moreover, Manson believed that the war would end with the whites being defeated temporarily, though he and his Family would arise from their secure base of operations out of Spahn Movie Ranch to reclaim the land from the inferior blacks. Leading twenty followers to the Ranch, most of whom were female, Manson was a charismatic and appealing figure to the drug-driven and racist whites that dominated his cult of personality. Manson himself had “spent most of his 32 years in reformatories and jails by the......

More than 200 people were accused of witchcraft practice and over 19 people were killed during this chaos. Salem, Massachusetts wasn’t alone in the witch hunt.

His ways to manipulate and inspire his followers in to committing murders without second guessing themselves is like nothing ever seen before. The murderers were members of a group led by Charles Manson called the Manson Family. These people were completely controlled by Manson.

...the castle no questions asked. “I wonder where I am,” I thought to myself. When I walked in the unusually huge door I noticed it was actually very nice on the inside. The first room I was in was very spacious and had a black and white checkered floor with walls that were painted a more lively purple. There were three hallways and a staircase between each hallway that leads to an open room with all windows. “I wonder if anyone is here.” I said almost immediately after I heard a large BOOM! And rolling down the hallway in front of him was a giant boulder. I had just enough time to jump out of the way but the boulder was blocking the door. With closer examination I noticed the bolder had something written on the back. It read Trials and Tribulations await you, choose wisely. The next thing I knew was that a tall figure was casting a shadow over him. Swoosh! It took a swing at him with a long axe and just missed him by the skin of my teeth. I looks up and it’s a knight in full armor. I ran towards the nearest of the three hallways which was the one to the left. But then I saw a sign that said exit coming from the middle hallway where the boulder had just came from, so I changed direction and headed there. After running down the hallway I noticed I was at a new room and the knight was no longer chasing him. So I look around and see a person in a suit on a balcony above him and says “Wrong choice,” Right before walking off. “Who are you?! What is this?!” I......

Charles Manson

...Charles Manson was born Charles Milles Maddox on November 12, 1934, in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Kathleen Maddox, a 16-year-old girl who was both an alcoholic and prostitute. Kathleen later married William Manson, but the marriage ended quickly and Charles was placed in a boy’s school. Despite running back to his mother, she didn't want anything to do with him. Charles was soon living on the streets and getting by through petty crime. I plan to discuss Manson’s background and answer the question “Why did Mason become a criminal?” Manson an American criminal and musician who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in the California desert, in the late-1960s. In 1971 he was found guilty of conspiracy to commit the murders of seven people, actress Sharon Tate and four other people at Tate's home, and the next day, a married couple, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, all carried out by members of the group at his instruction. He was convicted of the murders through the joint-responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes his fellow conspirators commit in furtherance of the conspiracy's objective. He was seen as a person who suffered from a large degree of rejection, instability and psychic trauma and always looking for status and securing some kind of love. Often he was also known to be dangerous, unpredictable and safe only under supervision. In many ways Manson reflects personality traits and obsessions that are associated......

...Name: Delcil Charles Program: Architecture/ Building Construction Course: Information Technology Date: 04/02/11 A Brief History of the computer. The history of computers starts out about 2000 years ago, at the birth of the abacus, a wooden rack holding two horizontal wires with beads strung on them. When these beads are moved around, according to programming rules memorized by the user, all regular arithmetic problems can be done. Another important invention around the same time was the Astrolabe, used for navigation. Blaise Pascal is usually credited for building the first digital computer in 1642. It added numbers entered with dials and was made to help his father, a tax collector. In 1671, Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz invented a computer that was built in 1694. It could add, and, after changing some things around, multiply. Leibniz invented a special stepped gear mechanism for introducing the addend digits, and this is still being used. The prototypes made by Pascal and Leibniz were not used in many places, and considered weird until a little more than a century later, when Thomas of Colmar (A.K.A. Charles Xavier Thomas) created the first successful mechanical calculator that could add, subtract, multiply, and divide. A lot of improved desktop calculators by many inventors followed, so that by about 1890, the range of improvements included: * Accumulation of partial results * Storage and automatic reentry of past results (A......

Marilyn Manson in the early 1990s. His name is Brian Hugh Warner, famously known as Marilyn Manson. It is an understatement to say that Manson is a little out of the ordinary. With pungent assertions and eerie esthetics, Manson has created a loyal fan base and a legacy that will last him years to come. Why is Marilyn Manson as popular as he is, and how did he do it? Marilyn Manson uses cacophonous diction, grotesque imagery, guilt by association, and reverse psychology to attract listeners. Accordingly, in order to gain popularity, one must “spread the word” about himself/herself. Companies that want their products consumed will invest in televised commercials. Manson and advertisers from MTV's TRL did the same when promoting Manson's appearance on the show. Manson's persona was represented in the diction of the commercial. Harsh, “in-your-face”, cacophonous diction was used in the commercial with the narration of “Marilyn Manson wants to crash the party, by limo, by tank, by helicopter, who knows...” (“Marilyn Manson TRL Promo”). The uses of the words crash and tank are very harsh-sounding words, yet match Manson's persona. The word choice makes the commercial more attention-grabbing, and may make the listeners wonder who this certain person is, forcing them to want to watch Manson, and invest in his “product”. Fig 1 et 2. Manson's commercial for his appearance on the MTV's TRL (“Marilyn Manson TRL Promo”). Also, the commercial lists several exaggerations that do not......

...Charles Manson Diana L. French Psychology 552 Instructor Jessica Ryan February 22, 2015 Charles Manson, better known as “Charlie”, “Manson Family Leader” was one of the most famous serial killers of our time. Interestingly he was tried and found guilty of murders that he himself did not commit yet he ordered his “family” to do so. The crimes that Charles was tried for took place in the late 1960’s and to this day Manson is still in prison. The following text will explore Manson’s life, the trial, where he is today and what psychological events were present to lead to this point in Manson’s life. Internal factors from Birth to Early 20’s November 12, 1934 Charles Manson was born in Cincinnati Ohio to Kathleen Maddox. Kathleen during this time was considered a promiscuous teen that drank alcohol and would end up in trouble of one kind or another regularly. Kathleen was briefly married to a man named William Manson who gave Charles his last name. Charles has never known his biological father.

...Amir Suleiman Ms. Pozzebon ENG 3U1 31 May 2011 A breakdown of the Hero in Charles Dickens’s Books The hero is a very important element in a story. Every good novel has one. The essence of the hero is not bravery or nobility, but self-sacrifice. The hero must pay a price to obtain his goal. The hero's journey during a story is a path from the ego, the self, to a new identity which has grown to include the experiences of the story. This path often consists of a division from family or group to a new, unfamiliar world, and finally a return to the ordinary, but now expanded, world. The hero must learn in order to grow. Often the heart of a story is not the barriers, but the new wisdom he gets from a mentor, a lover, or even sometimes a villain. Charles Dickens made note of having an excellent hero in Oliver Twist (Oliver Twist), Hard Times (Stephen Blackpool), and The Great Expectation (Pip). To commence, we will look at Oliver in Oliver Twist. As the child hero of a melodramatic novel of social dispute, Oliver Twist is meant to appeal more to our feelings than to our literary sensibilities. On many levels, Oliver is not a believable character, because although he is raised in corrupt surroundings, his purity and virtue are absolute. In the ten years we know of Oliver Twist he is portrayed as continuously childlike and morally upright, despite the fact that he’s had very little treatment that differs from contempt, violence, or indifference. Oliver is thrown into every......

...Charles Martin in Uganda: What to Do When a Manager Goes Native Question 1: Describe Ugandan cultural attributes that might affect the operations of a foreign company doing business there. Uganda is country, which has a multi ethnic, multi religious and multi language background. From the perspective of a foreign company willing to operate in Uganda the language is a serious if not the main problem because of the different types of languages. Even though English is the official language on that country there a great portion of the population that still speaks indigenous languages such as Bantu and Nilotic. This fact alone, results in a risk to the operations of the company by not being able to communicate with the locals, which result in a serious language barrier problem. So, having employees able to communicate with different people in a diverse set of languages is very important from a business perspective. Another concern is the multi religious background of the country with people practicing many different religions. The company may have to hire employees to work from any religion and also make sure that those belonging to all religious groups are also respected in order to avoid discrimination in the workplace. Also, business in third world countries tends to move slowly, so for example: phone lines may take months to be installed. Additionally the incomes are extremely low and with high payment system. Uganda is considered one of the most corrupted countries......

...Argument #2 11/18/2015 Charles Manson Trial Charles Manson is guilty he might not have killed Sharon Tate but he send his cult members. That means that he was involved in the murder. That makes him guilty. Manson had been to many trials from misdemeanors he had. Manson had been charged with many things in the past had been in jail. Many times before he was basically in and out of jail he had been charged of stealing he was charged many disorderly conduct charges. He was the iconic bad boy. Manson had been married twice.

...1. I believe Charles Tollison was qualified for a partnership position with his firm taking into consideration of his work behavior and ethics, as well as his profession knowledge and practical skill. As outlined by the case, he is the go to person whenever someone in the office confronted a difficult accounting or auditing issue. With his well refined technical skill and practical experience, when a new client posed complex technical issue, the audit engagement partner requested that he assigned to the job. However, I believe his management skill and business development skill need improvement. His micromanaging work style often kills the time budgets and lead to the excessive overtime. Although he never complained about the long hours that he worked but with the mounting sacrifices that he made, he will eventually get work burn out. He needs to learn how to delegate the work and seek out to help when needed. Furthermore, he needs to learn how to free up his time so he can attend the networking events to make connections with the prospective clients. 2. The firm did not treat Tollison fairly. First of all, Lincoln didn’t do what he promised to do for Tollison. I think Lincoln should not make the bogus promise to Tollison and should be straight with Tollison and assist him to create the profile that the Partner Selection Committee is looking for. Secondly, I believe the promotion policy used by the firm put too much weigh on the ability to bring in new clients and......
