The Charles Manson Legacy A look into the engineering of Charles Manson Serial Murders Spree Murders Murder Types Mass Murders Mass murders are mostly found defined as involving four or more victims killed at one time in one location These murders can be mostly found defined as involving three or more victims killed in separate incidents without a cooling off period These are defined as the killing of multiple victims within a relatively short period of time ranging from hours to weeks in one continuous even involving at least two locations with little to no cooling off period The Murders July 1969 August 9, 1969 August 10, 1969 2 4 5 The first murder committed by the family is the stabbing to death of Gary Hinman, a 34-year-old music teacher in Malibu. The motivation for this murder is thought to be robbery. Four Family members gruesomely murdered Shanon Tate and her unborn child, Wojciech Frykowski, Jay Sebring, and Abigail Folger. Manson accompanied the same four members plus two others to the LaBianca household where Manson departed after helping tie the two up and before the stabbings could begin. After the murders, Manson tried to pin them on African Americans Raids were initiated after two young girls escaped from Manson and asked for protection from the Family Mid-August 1969 October 12, 1969 Late-October 1969 Arrest & Conviction authorities raided several ranches holding Family members Manson and other Family members were arrested on multiple charges from arson to grand theft of dune buggies Atkins arrested for the Hinman murder Manson, Atkins, Krenwinkel and Van Houtan (members of the Family) found guilty on varying counts of murder over a 7-month trail. Sociological Theories Labeling Theory General Strain Theory Social Learning Theory lawbreakers feel labeled as a result of being processed in the criminal justice system for committing a criminal act after feeling the negative effects of the label and seeing how society reacts to them, self-concpets become altered. these individuals then embrace this deviant label by committing more criminal acts and become locked in their deviant roles Background Information Young people across the nation were rebelling against conservative values and norms by growing their hair long, rejecting traditional dating graces, and demanding rights for minorities, women, and homosexuals.
November 1968: the Beatles released the White Album containing the song "Helter Skelter" importance of financial success is what drives people without legitimate means to achieve these goals by committing crimes strain can result from the difference between the person's expectations and his or her achievements can also result from a situation where positive valued stimulus are removed from an individuals life also negative stimulus may lead to aggression or delinquency in individuals when strain is greater in size or magnitude, the effect is stronger on the individual Cognitive, behavioral, and emotional coping strategies are used by individuals to deal with the stress strain places on them Personality traits may determine which individuals react to strain with delinquency. essentially a reformulation of differential association theory that is more docile to empirical verification assume that a person's likelihood of engaging in crime increases as they differentially associates with those who commit crime and have favorable attitudes toward committing crime individuals are likely to commit acts of crime if the actual likelihood of their being rewarded is greater tan the likelihood of being punished Works Cited Atchison, Andrew J., and Kathleen M.
