Squeaky Fromme Released From Prison

In assasination, Crime, stupidity on August 14, 2009 by Editor Z

Personally I still don’t see how this is a good thing. But former Manson family member and attempted Presidential assassin Lynnette Squeaky Fromme was released from prison today. She had been sentenced to life in prison when in 1975 she had aimed a loaded gun at then U.S President Gerald R Ford.

In the clip above, which I posted on another post, in an interview she did for what appears to be a recent History Channel special she seemed to display little remorse for nearly gunning down the leader of the free world.

FORT WORTH, Texas — Charles Manson follower Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, who was convicted of trying to assassinate former President Gerald Ford, is out of prison after spending more than 30 years behind bars.

Fromme, a Manson family member, was released from a Texas prison hospital on Friday, according to federal officials. Now 60, she left the Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth at about 8 a.m., Carswell spokeswoman Dr. Maria Douglas said in a statement.

Fromme was just 26 years old when she pointed a semiautomatic .45- caliber pistol at Ford in September 1975 in Sacramento, Calif.

Secret Service agents grabbed her and Ford was unhurt.

Travel arrangements after her release won’t be made public, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Traci Billingsley.

Fromme first became eligible for parole in 1985 but did not seek release.

Fromme, who got a life term, became the first person sentenced under a special federal law covering assaults on U.S. presidents, a statute enacted after the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
