THE MOST superfluous traffic sign in California is the one on the short spur road that winds along the bay front to the state penitentiary at San Quentin. The sign says "NOT A THROUGH STREET." On a February morning of record-low 32-degree chill, Stephen Kay, a tall, deaconish Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, drives past the sign and parks at the road's windswept end. A body search completed, Kay is escorted to a prison conference room. He has a few minutes to arrange his papers for the latest in nearly 20 years of confrontations with Charles Milles Manson, mastermind of the peculiarly unforgettable mass murders that badly rattled California in August of 1969.

The Manson murderers are not in prison because of what they may or may not do in the future. They are in prison because of what they did do. All this talk about how rehabilitated Leslie Van Houten may be in the future is absurd. They all gave up their privilege to a future when they took away the future of those they murdered.

No one can say prosecutor Stephen Kay lacks credentials to try the "big case." Just ask Charles Manson or Lawrence Bittaker, two of the most notorious multiple-murderers in the annals of Los Angeles crime. Both were convicted by Kay, a 28-year veteran of the district attorney's office, who will prosecute the photographer accused of murdering former Raiderette Linda Sobek.

At least 10 women paid a heavy price for deals the district attorney's office made with a jailhouse informant. They were kidnaped or raped. Some of the county's most respected career prosecutors made the deals, twice persuading judges to release the informant, Stephen Jesse Cisneros, from jail. Cisneros, a mentally disturbed sex offender, was in jail each time for attempted rape. In each case, prosecutors traded him his freedom for information he provided on murder cases.
