Manson maintains bravado after a 9th denial of parole

SHARE Manson maintains bravado after a 9th denial of parole

Charles Manson, gone gray with time but unrepentant as ever, kept his customary bravado after learning he would remain in prison for at least five more years.

A three-member panel of the state Board of Corrections decided Thursday that Manson, 62, is still too dangerous for society, denying him parole for the ninth time."I accept this decision. That's cool," Manson said. "I'm involved in too many things. I have a Web site I'm working on."

Manson is serving a life sentence for orchestrating the deaths of actress Sharon Tate and six others in 1969. The hearing opened with a parole board member describing the grisly killings. Manson appeared to get tearful but then rambled for an hour.

"I've killed a lot of people in my life," he said. "I have. But I was convicted for things I didn't do and I was let loose for things I did."
