45 Years Later, Defense Attorney in Manson Case Speaks

Irving Kanarek was assigned as Charles Manson’s attorney during the “Tate-LaBianca trial”, after his 6th Amendment Right of self-representation was violated.  In a recent article by TheGuardian.com, Kanarek, now 94, claims that Manson was legally innocent, and actually innocent.  He gives his take on Manson, the trial, and the debilitating media frenzy surrounding it all.  

“I would defend a client who I knew was guilty of horrific crimes. They have to be proved guilty. I’ve had cases where people were guilty as hell but they couldn’t prove it. And if they can’t prove it, he’s not guilty. In that case, the person walks free. That’s American justice.

I got a reversal of Jimmy Lee’s death sentence, and he had been accused of killing a police officer. That made me the victim of police non-objectivity. They pulled me over, gave me tickets undeservedly.

It wasn’t a difficult decision to take the Manson case. My purpose was to fight legally admissible evidence, and the amount of that was scant. His guilt was based on a few hearsay words, inadmissible in court, that he supposedly told this guy to do a number on the Tate residence.  No question he was legally innocent.  And, more than that, he was actually innocent. There was no evidence connecting him to those murders.

The newspapers, the magazines, the motion pictures got people all excited – Manson as the embodiment of human evil. Charlie wasn’t a monster. When you look at the legally admissible evidence, you come to a very different conclusion. Just looking at him from objective considerations, he’s a personable person.”

“I’ve thought a lot about the case in terms of the legalities. I haven’t dwelt much on the human tragedy of it. There’s a lot of myth, for example that the baby was taken out of Tate’s body. Not so. The wounds were not in the abdomen. The wounds were primarily in the breast area.

I didn’t spend much time [thinking about Tate and the other victims], because they were victims of disputes that Charlie had nothing to do with. I think his direct involvement has been woefully extrapolated.

By the time I visited the house, the bodies were gone. The scene was what I’d call mechanical. Nothing about it was gruesome, per se. They’d marked where they were in chalk. So it isn’t as overwhelming as some people may feel. None of it stayed with me. The tools of the courtroom make such scenes less than human. I didn’t think about it emotionally. The victims are part of the case, but are not that tangible. I lost sleep on other cases, but not on this one.

People ask me, have I ever felt in the presence of evil, I don’t know how to respond to that. I don’t dream or even think much about Charlie.

I have regrets about every case where someone is killed or injured. Murder is unappetising. But I’ve never defended anyone who’s been accused of horrible criminal acts on children.”

It has come to our attention that a parody/fake article announcing the release of Charles Manson has been published on the internet.  Some people have been inquiring if the article is true.  Although the article is fake, it does reference trueevents and facts concerning the CA Dept. of Corrections (including “elderly parole”), and it brings up some points we’d like to address.
— Manson will be 80 years old this year (2014).
— He has been in prison for 45 years.  In so-called civilized/advanced countries, this is unheard of.  (In parts of Europe, the maximum sentence for murder is 26 years)
— CM has endured decades of torture, through long-term solitary confinement, and abuse by forced debilitating psychotropic “medication”.  Now he must contend with substandard medical care, poor nutrition, unhealthy conditions of confinement, and continued discriminatory treatment at the hands of rogue staff members.  In addition, he is denied his 1st Amendment rights of access to the public media, and is held against his will in a protective housing unit instead of general population.
— Manson has been convicted of masterminding 9 murders; convicted of first degree murder only through conspiracy laws.  It has never been claimed by a court that Manson himself killed anyone.
— In California and elsewhere, people who have actually committed murder are being released regularly (“…data from 2012, shows that of 784 California inmates on parole after being sentenced to a life term for murder, only 5 percent returned to prison last year for parole violations.”)
— Manson is considered by the CDCR to be a “low risk” inmate, meaning that the inmate is highly unlikely to be a risk if released.  According to the CDCR, low risk category is determined by age, amount of time incarcerated, and behavior while incarcerated.
— The only evidence used to convict Manson was purely circumstantial; presented by bribed witnesses, threatened witnesses, fabricated testimonies, and through suppression of exculpatory evidence.
— New developments in the “Manson cases”, previously overlooked or suppressed evidence, as well as updated witness statements, have constantly been ignored by the media and the courts.
— Manson was unduly denied his 6th amendment right of self-representation.
— Manson was never allowed a defense portion of the trial, after 8 months of prosecution, slander, and a pervasive world-wide media frenzy (which began well before the trial itself).
— The longer you hold Manson down under your ignorance, jealousy, lies, and cover-ups – the more you will have to pay.
