According to Preston Guillory— a former Malibu policeman who helped bust Manson and the Family at Spahn Ranch— they knew Manson had shot Black Panther Bernard Crowe and was hoping he would attack the Black Panthers. This was the era of COINTELPRO— where the feds tried to stop the Panthers by everything from killing them to framing them for murder. Guillory’s accusation was that the LAPD and Malibu Police knew they committed the Tate and LaBianca murders, but simply did not care because it happened when the Family was under surveillance and didn’t want the backlash.
Guillory also mentions how many times Manson broke parole from 1967 - 1969. He was arrested at least 5 times; all would have been worthy of being sent back to prison by breaking his parole. Manson was let lose every time.
“We had been briefed for a few weeks prior to the actual raiding of Spahn Ranch. We had a sheaf of memos on Manson, that they had automatic weapons at the ranch […] that firemen from the local fire station had been accosted by armed members of Manson’s band.
Deputies at the station quite frankly became very annoyed that no action was being taken about Manson […] Manson was left on the street was because our department thought that he was going to attack the Black Panthers. Manson was anti-black and he had supposedly killed a Black Panther, the body of which could not be found, and the department thought that he was going to launch an attack on the Black Panthers.
Manson should have been [imprisoned] long before the killings, because he was on parole, period. He was living at the Spahn Ranch with an outlaw motorcycle gang. I feel that, to say the least, the sheriff of Los Angeles County is an accessory to murder.
The raid was a week after the Sharon Tate thing, and the intelligence information was coming in for about three weeks prior to the raid. They just didn’t want any arrests made.
It appeared to me that the raid was more or less staged as an afterthought. It was like a scenario that we were going through […] If you did have them under fairly close surveillance, wouldn’t you see them leave the Spahn Ranch to go over and kill seven people and then come back? […] Either they were under surveillance at the time, which means somebody must have seen them go to the Tate house and commit the killings.
You have to remember that Charlie was on federal parole all this time from ’67 to ’69. Do you realize all the shit he was getting away with while he was on parole?
Prior to the Spahn Ranch raid, there was a memo–it was verbal […] It was intimated to us that we were going to make a raid on the Spahn ranch, but the captain came out briefly and said, ‘No action is to be taken on anybody at the Spahn Ranch.’ “
