I wholeheartedly agree that neo-Nazi Charles Manson, who was dedicated to fomenting race wars and racial hatred, should not be buried anywhere near Kern County. To do so would be sacrilegious and extremely disrespectful to our valued, diverse society.

Furthermore, it will most likely attract other neo-Nazis and white supremacists whose goal is inciting acts of cultural divisiveness and hatred. Communities throughout the southern Central Valley, including our law enforcement agencies, would have to be on guard 24/7 and bear the expense of that.

Let's do the right thing for all and let Manson’s heirs have him, with the proviso that they take him far, far away.
