That Time One Of Charles Manson's Followers Pointed A Gun At President Gerald Ford's Head

Facts about the Charles Manson usually focus on the brutal murder of actress Sharon Tate and five others in 1969. Unfortunately, there are many more things the Manson Family did that remain unsolved or forgotten in the wake of more unspeakable crimes. 

Mansonites are well-known for their complete devotion to their leader and his list of Family rules, even during Manson's imprisonment. Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, for example, remained devoted to Manson from the moment they met on a beach in the 1960s, living life based on the rules he set for her. This included forming and maintaining relationships with men in the Aryan Brotherhood, threatening reporters that spoke with Manson, and attempting to assassinate President Gerald Ford to gain attention for her leader - and the environment.
