Talk about putting the “CELL” in cell phone …
Convicted “Helter Skelter” psycho murderer Charles Manson was busted in prison for possessing a cell phone. Manson was among thousands of California inmates busted with a cell phone last year. Manson had reportedly called numbers in New Jersey, California, Florida and British Columbia. It would appear that serial killer Charles Manson has kept up with the times, he also sent text messages. UNREAL!
Reporting from Sacramento — Contraband cellphones are becoming so prevalent in California prisons that guards can’t keep them out of the hands of the most notorious and violent inmates: Even Charles Manson, orchestrator of one of the most notorious killing rampages in U.S. history, was caught with an LG flip phone under his prison mattress.
Manson made calls and sent text messages to people in California, New Jersey, Florida and British Columbia before officers discovered the phone, said Terry Thornton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections.
Imagine receiving a call from this sick, twisted freak?
How on earth does some on like Charles Manson get access to a cell phone? WTF!!! A sick SOB like Charles Manson who got other to heinously kill for him gets access to cell phone. Why doesn’t the California Department of Corrections just look the other way and provide Chuck with a blackberry and unlimited wireless Internet connection?
Can you imagine getting a call from Charles Manson? Excuse me Mr. Smith … Charles Manson is on line 2 for you. We thought it was amazing when Andy Dufresne managed to get a rock hammer into Shawshank prison.
The proliferation of cellphones in California prisons has been exponential in recent years, authorities say. Guards found 1,400 in 2007, when the department began to keep records of confiscations. The number jumped to 6,995 in 2009 and stands at 8,675 so far this year.
