The "Tex Tapes" Revisited.
Lynyrd's Gut Feelings....
On October 7th, I listened to the Starcity Radio Program. Attorney Michael Beckman was interviewed. Beckman of course, was Bruce Davis' attorney for Davis' recent parole hearing.
Beckman stated (paraphrasing), that Davis' best strategy at this point, is to keep things quiet. According to Beckman, he advised Davis to refrain from speaking (to anyone) about his recent approval... media, fellow inmates, anyone... and essentially "keep things under wraps". Good advice!
Conversely, Beckman stated (paraphrasing) that Debra Tate's next strategic move (now that Davis has been approved) is to make as much noise via the media, as possible.
He said that Debra had already begun that effort... effectively bombarding media outlets as much as possible. Obviously, Debra knows that raising "Manson" consciousness will thwart Davis' chances.
Since the new resurgence in media attention to these "Tex Tapes" began... Beckman's words have echoed in my ears.
My gut feeling, is that this recent resurgence of media attention to the "Tex Tapes", is directly related to Debra Tate. I have a strong "gut feeling" that Debra Tate is using these tapes as a tool, to get the "Manson" name (and all that conjures) back into the public psyche. At this critical time for Davis... that's actually a formidable strategy.
The recent media attention to these tapes... and the potential for 12 new Manson victims in the public eye, can only hurt Davis' parole bid.
Bear in mind... Debra Tate is obviously well-aware, that Davis' release, would likely put Leslie and Bobby closer to the door. In her mind, this is for all the apples.
I say all this, because when you really look at it... there's no new information being released, in regards to these tapes. We already knew about the tapes. We already knew the LAPD was interested in them. We already knew the LAPD suspected more murder confessions could be contained therein. We already knew about the ongoing litigation over possession of these tapes. There's nothing new here. It's the same story unresolved... yet revisited. Is anyone else (like me) wondering why this story is being revisited, without further information???
If the LAPD had been granted full custody of these tapes... THAT would be an update worth publicizing. If the LAPD was permanently denied custody... THAT would also be an update worth publicizing. And certainly... if new confessions were (in fact) found on those tapes... THAT would be a groundbreaking update.
But think about it... there's nothing new here... and yet, the story is being re-run in the media, without an update. Ironically... coinciding with all this, is Debra Tate's face all over the news... and Beckman's words ringing in my ears. It all seems kinda strange to me, and I personally believe, that Debra Tate is the catalyst. I have no proof... just a "gut feeling"... but my gut rarely lets me down.
Don't get me wrong. The potential for new information on those tapes is certainly an exciting prospect. I'm not arguing with that concept. I'm looking forward to more TLB information myself. But, something seems strange here. Why would the media run an update to an old story, without any updated facts??
What do you think???? Am I missing something here?? LOL!
