Susan Atkins along with others, definitely committed horrendous crimes, but since when does the US demand an eye for an eye. It has been stated that she has helped save the lives of other inmates and her years in prison were put to good use. Now she is dying...she has been entitled to parole 11 times and turned down 11 times! Some say weeks, some say a couple of months is all she has to live. Why not let her free after serving 37 years in prison and die in a bed in a home. She is practically unable talk, can't walk and cannot possibly do anyone any harm. She had denounced Manson many many years ago and admitted that she knew what she did was terribly wrong. Right now she is being given cruel and unusual punishment. Let Susan Atkins die outside those prison walls. People, show compassion. She does deserve it at this point.
