Bruce Davis' 28th Parole Hearing

Bruce's 28th hearing is set for tomorrow... Wednesday, March 12th, 2014.  
He's now 71 years old.  Bruce has been approved twice (by the parole board)... and both times, the board's decision was overturned by the Governor's office.

I don't feel bad for Bruce, and I'm certainly not dying, to see him released.

But, I will say this:
If Bruce wasn't linked to the name "Charles Manson" (and, all that entails)... he would have been released a long time ago.

"Justice" is supposed to be blind, and in this situation, that concept seems questionable.

I'll leave my commentary, at that.

Couldn't agree with you more on that one!

Without the stigma of being an "ex-Manson Family member", I think Bruce, Bobby, and Leslie would have all been released YEARS ago.

Should they be released? I'll leave that up to y'all to decide!

Peace out everybody, and be good humans!

lurch said...

Totally agree with ya on this LSB!

Without the stigma that goes with being labled an "ex Manson Family member" I think Bruce, Bobby, and Leslie would have been released YEARS ago.

Should they be released?

I'll let y'all sort that out amongst yourselves! Play nice, and no hitting below the belt!

wow, a key Manson follower up for parole and we get ONE comment save L/S's intro and Katie's hello. Have we officially entered the "don't care" phase of Mansonology?
Manson is still seen as the Devil, and this society isn't going to free devotees of the Devil.
Of course Grogan proves that wrong. Still blows the mind that he has been jaunting around the globe, screwing as free as a wild rabbit for the past 30 years while the others still stand no chance. Exactly how does the judicial system explain judging old Scramblehead one way while judging say Bruce and Leslie completely different. Did Clem really do that much of a better job selling his rehabilitation? Or was he just ballsy enough to cash in on the biggest bargaining chip - the location of Shorty's body. You gotta wonder how Bruce feels about that.

Clem had a judge on his side.
He had politics on his side.
He had key information playing for him.
I think Clem truly did rehabilitate.

He hasn't been in any trouble since his last release, so his case is a positive example.

Dooger said...

pS: he was once again suggested for parole; coming from someone who called directly and spoke with representatives.

Kimchi said...

Yes, it was "tweeted" by NBC news that he was granted parole..

Thanks Kimchi!

Kimchi said...

And Dooger!

I have no problem with Bruce getting out on parole. I think he's paid his debt and is probably too old to harm anybody. But with Moonbeam Brown sitting in the governor's officemthere's no telling what he'll do. Brown announced that he's going to run for reelection so my guess is that he'll probably veto the parole board's decision.....

katie8753 said...

Doc what does "too old to harm anybody" have to do with anything? Is that how we gauge punishment? Decrepit equals innocent?

That guy probably killed a lot more people than he's charged with. And he's laughing all the way to the bank.

Katie...lol - I don't think Davis is exactly laughing :)
