I think it is pretty sad the way that Susan Atkins died in prison, especially from brain cancer which must of been horrible for her. And I’m glad she didn’t turn her life around, because I’m not sure life was ever moving in the right direction in the first place to end up where she did. But she did build a positive life for herself in prison as far as how she did her time and how she helped fellow inmates and helped people on the outside. Life in prison doesn’t have to be and shouldn’t be torture. Other than the fact that you know you’ll never be free and you’ll always be incarcerated. Which is bad enough and shouldn’t be any worst than that if the inmate does their time well and doesn’t further their criminal career inside of prison.
