Why this petition matters

Started by Debra Tate

Charles Manson cult murderer Robert "Bobby" Beausoleil (CDC# B-28302)’s next parole hearing is scheduled for January 2025. Signatures & comments are now being collected against his release on this petition for his next hearing, so please sign, comment, & SHARE to let the parole board & Governor Newsom know that you do not want this dangerous murderer released back into free society.   

Bobby Beausoleil went to the home of Gary Hinman on July 25, 1969 to forcibly obtain money at gunpoint. When Mr. Hinman explained he did not have the money, Bobby Beausoleil called Charles Manson to come to the home.  Charles Manson slashed Gary Hinman in the head with a sword slicing both his ear & face.  After two days of torture and continuous bleeding from this wound, Bobby Beausoleil had Gary Hinman sign over his two cars, then stabbed Gary Hinman in the chest twice, killing him on July 27, 1969.  Bobby Beausoleil wrote in blood on the wall "Political Piggy" & drew a panther paw print in blood to try to blame the murders on the Black Panthers. Members of the Manson cult have stated Beausoleil's actions further lead to the Tate/LaBianca murders - which were crafted to look like copycat killings to try to prove Bobby Beausoleil’s innocence  due to his being in jail at the time of the Tate/LaBianca murder spree.

In 1973- almost four years later- Bobby Beausoleil testified at a fellow Manson cult member Catherine Share's sanity court hearing- stating that the people in the court from the Manson cult were his "brothers & sisters" (although he now says he was never a member of the cult at all).  He also then stated he was "at war with everyone in this courtroom", and said : "You better pray I never get out!"

Since being incarcerated, Mr. Beausoleil has told many versions of the murder to courts & parole boards.  Bobby Beausoleil was also found, in 1984, by prison staff to be drawing & selling from prison cartoons of naked toddlers being spanked by adults. He sold these to admitted pedophiles who were sending him money orders in prison. He states today that he was never a member of the Charles Manson cult, diminishes his responsibility in this murder, and expects to live in free society. 

As his next January 2025 parole hearing approaches, you may also e-mail or write a letter to the parole board.  Please include Bobby Beausoleil's name, CDC# B-28302, parole hearing date [exact day yet TBD] & state why you feel he should stay in prison by contacting the parole board here:
