Evidently Bruce Davis was granted parole today, but there doesn't seem to be any news coverage about it.  Not that I can find.  FYI.

We will report more when it's available.

I am sure Debra Tate, and Barbara Hoyt are going to get as many letters to the governor as possible, so he can reverse the decision again. I am starting to feel kinda sorry for the old man. He has been so close, then turned away.

There's an article about Davis' most recent parole hearing on CieloDrive.com -->HERE.

Apparently, the CA governor will decide in July whether to block Davis' release or not.

One argument Davis' attorneys might have if his release is blocked by the governor of CA for a third time, is to determine if other CA inmates have been released on parole after committing far worse crimes and serving much less time.

It's not fair for Davis, or anyone else, if politicians are allowed to arbitrarily decide who is imprisoned and who isn't, based on "political concerns". That's the definition of "political prisoner".

Davis attorney said they are still waiting to be heard by the Circuit Court of Appeals regarding the last time Davis' release was blocked by the CA governor after being recommended for release by the parole board.

Poor Brucie. Maybe he should have stayed in the sewer.

He could have avoided prison and kept killing folks like Charlie told him to.

Then he wouldn't have to put up with the big, bad boogie men. The parole hearing staff, Deb & Babs.

To me, it is inhumane to incarcerate human beings for over 40 years. Because we live in a punitive culture, and most of you watch Fox News to see what you think about things,
A second degree murder in 1969 by drug users in an era of political and social unrest is still discussed and litigated to this day.
Move on. Get over it.

Tom I think it's inhumane to stab someone in the head so hard that it leaves dents in the skull.

But that's just me....
