Aging Manson 'Family' members long for freedom

After three decades in prison and being described as model prisoners, the Manson family members are continually denied parole. The followers of Charles Manson went on a killing spree in Los Angeles, California, slaying a pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others in a two-night rampage in August 1969. Of the Manson family, Susan Atkins is terminally ill and Charles "Tex" Watson is an ordained minister. Even so, debate continues whether the four Manson followers should ever be freed.
