Charles Manson 'family member' granted parole for third time
« on: March 13, 2014, 12:29:53 PM »

March. 13 (UPI) -- The California Parole Board recommended for the third time in 4 years that Charles Manson's associate Bruce Davis be released from prison for good behavior.

In 1972, Davis was convicted of first-degree murder for the deaths of Gary Hinman and Donald "Shorty" Shea and sentenced to life in prison. The recommendation from the parole board does not mean that Davis is guaranteed freedom. There will be a 4 month review of the decision before it is sent to Governor Jerry Brown for approval. Brown has already denied parole once.

"When considered as a whole, I find the evidence shows why he currently poses a danger to society if released from prison," said Brown in 2012.

Despite Brown's stance and the families of the Manson victims protesting the decision, Davis's lawyer says that his client has been, "overwhelmingly rehabilitated."

There should be no parole for a person who kills in cold blood. If they don't get the death penalty they should rot in jail because their victim sure as hell is still 6 foot under.
