Book Review (Change): Helter Skelter

By way of Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties by Tom O’Neill with Dan Piepenbring:

Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson MurdersHelter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Chopped stars off my rating after reading Chaos: Charles Manson, the CIA, and the Secret History of the Sixties. Bugliosi was not only a stalker and a woman beater, but he committed so many deliberate legal errors in the Manson trails that the defendants deserve new trials, and he should have been disbarred. What I read in Tom O’Neill‘s book about his suppressed evidence and created motives, findings verified by attorney Stephen Kay, horrified me. No matter what the Manson defendants did–and what they did was horrible–they deserved fair trials. And they didn’t receive them by half, thanks to Bugliosi. There are proven lies in Helter Skelter.
Verily, I am shooketh. And disgusted.
