Charles Manson’s top follower is now a ‘friendly’ upstate neighbor
As for that new life, some things don’t change. The house she shares with Valdner is decorated with skulls. Fromme’s hair is long and red again. And her boyfriend keeps a baseball bat, which, as he made clear to two Post reporters who approached him, he’s not afraid to use.
It's a Post story... not journalism. Fromme served her time. Yes, she's a nutjob, but there are a lot of nutjobs out there, many of whom also have Halloween decorations and are also racists. Needless to say, if she were black, she'd probably still be incarcerated.
That girl is as pathetic a person you could ever see. The core half wit girls at the centre of the Manson Cult were classic cult followers, as brainless as they were complicit, even after the fact, in crimes they never were charged with. The terrible truth is the authorities never pressed them about what they knew because they didn't want to know, happy as they were to have a few core culprits and a show trial. And these aging cult leftovers linger on to today. Like Sergeant Schultz, of course, they know "nothing.....noooothing..."
When I was much younger my mom had dealings with a lady named Sally Kanarek she was the wife of Irving Kanarek the third attorney in the Charles Manson trials I had spent time with Irving he was a very smart fellow I spent hours in his garage looking at old case files including some from the Manson case. Irving would drive us to places he would fall asleep at traffic lights often we had to say Irving wake up the light is green. Irving was driving one day he had gotten turned around and was going the wrong way on a one-way street. A police officer had pulled him over. The policeman asked Irving didn't you see the arrows Irving's reply was I did not even see the indians he got a contempt of court charge for that.
There is actually no evidence what so ever that they house is decorated in any kind of fashion, and as far as those two post reporters they have themselves to blame. Who knows what they said to him, the press is not exactly know for being polite either. She did some horrible things but she has paid for it, that is what jail is for.
