of Paul Watkins...
Direct examination by Vincent Bugliosi:
your association with Charles Manson, did he frequently discuss Helter Skelter
"He used the word 'Helter
"I wouldn't go so far as to say constantly.
He did not say, 'Helter Skelter, Helter Skelter, Helter Skelter.' But he did quite
a bit, yes, it seemed to be the main topic."
On How Helter Skelter
"There would be some atrocious murders; that some of the
spades from Watts would come up into the Bel-Air and Beverly Hills district and
just really wipe some people out, just cut bodies up and smear blood and write
things on the wall in blood, and cut little boys up and make parents watch. So,
in retaliation-this would scare; in other words, all the other white people would
be afraid that this would happen to them, so out of their fear they would go into
the ghetto and just start shooting black people like crazy. But all they would
shoot would be the garbage man and Uncle Toms, and all the ones that were with
Whitey in the first place. And underneath it all, the Black Muslims would-he would
know that it was coming down."
"Helter Skelter was coming down?"
