The Tate-LaBianca Murders

sharon tate1Today is the anniversary of the cold-blooded murder of actress Sharon Tate and her friends.  Tomorrow will be the anniversary of the murder of the LaBiancas, also by The Manson ‘Family’.

You may visit the wikilink above for the particulars.  Make certain you are of strong stomach before so doing.

(I originally was going to post unedited crime scene photos here.  Decorum said to do otherwise.  Those with such an interest may find them on Google or Bing.)

These brutal and gruesome murders of West Coast elite took place in 1969 California.  By persons using guns and knives against others who had no means of self defense.  In their own homes.

And that’s my point.

These folks had no reason to suspect massive home invasions were about to occur against them.  And while California had restrictive firearms laws in place then, possession of them in one’s own home was pretty easy.

And none of those victims availed themselves of their rights.

This is not intended to scare you, unnecessarily.  It IS, however, intended to scare you necessarily.

Even if you don’t want to carry a firearm with you in your travels, it behooves you to get an ‘appropriate’ one, learn how to use it and keep it in your home.  Just as you would a fire extinguisher.

Home invasion crime is at an all-time high.  If it happens to you and your family, I hope the miscreants are just looking for valuables, not torture, rape and murder.

Guess you’ll have to ask them when you see them…

  2. I’d ask them what they want but I don’t think I’ll be able to hear the answer.
    Rapid gunfire indoors is pretty darn LOUD.

  4. Tex Watson walked in on a sleeping Frykowski..the others were in the back bedrooms. They were all taken by surprise as opposed to hearing something first and being alarmed and time to get to any guns. (However, it has always puzzled me how they did not hear the gunshots that killed Steven Parent in the driveway.) Even if they had guns in the house, unless you are in your home living at all times in the ready position, the gun doesn’t do you good when they have one too.
