If you’re unsure as to which side of the great “nature versus nurture” debate you subscribe to, Charles Manson’s childhood is proof that “nurturing” plays a significant role in the development a of serial killer. Whether or not Manson was born to kill, the fact that his mother was a criminal who spent time in prison had to play a role in Manson’s deranged pathology.
According to CNN, Manson’s mother once sold him to a woman who wanted a child for… wait for it… a pitcher of beer. Yup, Miss Manson pretty much takes the cake for worst mom ever.
Manson’s uncle had to search for the woman who “bought” the boy and eventually retrieved him and returned him to his mother.
Perhaps, young Charles would have been better off had his Uncle let the deal stand. Perhaps, society would have as well. Yet, alas, we will never know.
