California governor weighs parole for Charles Manson follower
CNN ^ | February 2, 2013 | Michael Martinez and Kyung Lah

Posted on 02/03/2013 5:15:15 PM PST by george76

California Gov. Jerry Brown is considering whether to grant parole to a convicted murderer who followed notorious killer Charles Manson, a spokeswoman for the governor said.

Brown's office received a formal recommendation from the state board parole Friday to release Bruce Davis, 70, who would be the first Manson "family" member to secure freedom solely for good behavior.

Brown has 30 days -- or until March 3 -- to either modify, affirm or reverse the parole board's recommendation, a corrections spokeswoman said.

In 2010, Davis secured his first formal recommendation for parole by the state board, but then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger reversed the board's decision.

I’d say okay, release him in twenty years.

I find it interesting that while we are considering how to punish law abiding citizens we are trying to decide if we should release a known murdered back into society. I say let him and his boss rot there.

NO, none of those sickos should be released for any reason, every last one of them should die in prison.

Why not? The current occupant of the White House is doing all he can to see that Manson's dreams of race and class wars, and the destruction of the USA come true.

What more damage can one more of Manson's followers do?

He got a life sentence.

That means he should spend his life in prison.

LOL! Reminds me of a line by a comedian I heard many years ago... "Sirhan Sirhan says he should be elligible for parole, and if Bobby Kennedy were alive, he would say so. Isn't that just the luck? The one guy who would vouch for him, and he murdered him!"

If there was such a thing as justice, the man would have been executed decades ago and there would be no discussion of parole.

As someone sagely pointed out, the last place you will find justice is in a court.

3 to 1 says moonbeam cuts him loose. Remember, the victims are dead, Their opinions don’t count.

If the redeeming criterion is simply good behavior, then Leslie Van Houten deserves release. Susan Atkins even set up a fund a donated money to the families of the Tate-Labianca murders. Either keep the ole boy or release Van Houten as well.

I agree. Those of us who where of age at the time of the Manson murders remember the horror of it all (I was 19). This murderer’s vitims are still dead, they will never be given a reprieve from the grave.

You’re correct, all the Manson family should have been executed as most of them were sentenced to death, I don’t believe Bruce Davis was one sentenced to death but I’m not quibbling, he should have been.

Had it not been for the CA Supreme court and Chief Justice Rose Bird (appointed by then Gov Moonbeam Brown) the bulk of them would have been executed but the CA Supremes overturned the death penalty as I remember it. Rose Bird was subsequently voted out as Chief Justice by CA voters and I’m proud to say I was one of those voters.

You’re so right, I-M. It was an horrific progression of murders by these demented people following the demented and controlling Manson.

It was long ago but I remember them vividly because we didn’t live that far away.

They should have all been executed.

Notably when one of Obama’s political mentors was a big fan of Charles Manson. Just some people in the neighborhood. Dig it!

Hi there jazusamo! How have you been? I recently found more mountain lion tracks in the snow on my front yard.

Hiya, I-M. Things are good here and hope they're the same with you.

Am not surprised about the lion tracks in your front yard from what you've said before, only wish I lived in such a place now.

I really miss being able to come up your way in the Sierras as I did in years past, it's Gods country!

Be well, FRiend.

I’m for releasing him. The poor man has served his time.

In fact, I would sign an order for his release.

Only two small conditions.

1) Take him up to about 20,000 feet first.

2) No parachute.
