Charles Manson haven't kill anyone nor wrote anything with blood, he wasn't even around at the time of the killings. Instead of reading fantasy books or watching fantasy movies about him, or clips of him taken out of context, go research the subject before posting lies. There are few real documentaries and a lot of interviews, and some real books like The Manson File: Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman by Nikolas Schreck. or w/e... it's easier to watch 1min clip of him going crazy and listening about him for 30sec on the NEWS than wasting tens of hours reading and watching boring shit...
