Progressive Los Angeles DA Supports Parole for Manson Family Murderer

Progressive Los Angeles DA Supports Parole for Manson Family Murderer

“‘My jaw drops. I’m outraged,’ said Debra Tate, whose actress sister, Sharon Tate, was murdered by Manson followers.”

Bruce Davis was a member of the Manson Family cult who participated in the torture and murder of Gary Hinman in 1969. Davis has now been recommended for parole, and the move has the support of new Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón.

Like many progressive DAs across the country who won with the financial backing of left-wing billionaire George Soros, Gascón operates more like a high priced defense attorney than a prosecutor.

Family members of Gary Hinman and other Manson Family victims are understandably outraged by the idea of parole for Davis.

Andrew Blankstein and Eric Leonard report at NBC News:

Relatives of Manson ‘family’ murder victims outraged by DA’s new policy

Whenever the notorious killer Charles Manson or one of his convicted followers would come up for parole over the last 40 years, a Los Angeles County prosecutor joined victims’ family members at a California state prison to argue against the release.

But when Kay Martley joined a California Board of Parole Hearings video conference to consider parole for convicted Manson “family” killer Bruce Davis earlier this month, she was stunned to learn she would be making the case on behalf of her murdered relative alone.

“I had no one to speak for me,” said Martley, 81, whose cousin Gary Hinman was tortured and killed by Manson followers on July 27, 1969. “I felt like no one cares about the victim’s families anymore. We are totally forgotten.”

The absence of a prosecutor was no oversight. It was the result of a policy shift ordered by newly elected Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, who campaigned on promises to reduce the number of people in prison…

The Davis case illustrates how victims’ family members can feel as if they’re left out in the cold.

“My jaw drops. I’m outraged,” said Debra Tate, whose actress sister, Sharon Tate, was murdered by Manson followers.

Debra Tate has started a petition to deny Davis parole. Almost 25,000 people have signed it:

Keep Charles Manson Cult Killer Bruce Davis From Getting Parole

Bruce McGregor Davis (CDC# B-41079), Charles Manson’s true right-hand man, was recommended for parole release by the CA Board of Parole on January 22, 2021! Now, only CA Governor Gavin Newsom can reverse this unfortunate decision. Please sign & SHARE this petition to let the Governor know that you do not want this dangerous murderer set free!

Bruce Davis was convicted of the murders of both Gary Hinman & Donald “Shorty” Shea. In July, 1969, Bruce Davis drove Charles Manson to Gary Hinman’s house where they held him up at gunpoint- demanding money, as well as his cars (using a gun Bruce Davis bought with a fake I.D.). Charles Manson then sliced Mr. Hinman with a sword, cutting his face and his ear in half.

After 3 days of torture, Gary Hinman was eventually stabbed to death and suffocated with a pillow by other members of the “Manson Family” cult. Bruce Davis then personally stabbed Donald “Shorty Shea” in mid-August, 1969 near Spahn Ranch where the cult lived, as he was being murdered by several individuals. Donald Shea’s family had no idea where he was buried until his skeletal remains were located in December 1977- without any help from Bruce Davis to locate the body, despite his claims of being a Born Again Christian.

Ed Morrissey of Hot Air makes an excellent point about why this is happening:

This is all part of Gascón’s social-justice agenda, and he’s hardly alone. Thanks to aggressive organizing by progressives in several states and counties, district attorneys around the country are imposing these kinds of policies despite strong popular support for violent-crime sentencing. Unfortunately, voters didn’t connect those dots in these elections, and victims’ families are stuck with the consequences.

The Manson family murderers offer the reductio ad absurdum to Gascón’s blanket policies. Even progressive governors like Jerry Brown and Gavin Newsom knew better than to allow the Manson murderers out of prison.

Democrats and their media allies are in the process of branding Republicans as domestic terrorists while progressive DAs are trying to let murderers out of prison.

Nothing makes sense.

I think he’s already setting up the next victim.

“My jaw drops. I’m outraged,” said Debra Tate, whose actress sister, Sharon Tate, was murdered by Manson followers.”

You should be lucky he isn’t awaiting bail, your Hollywood pals would already have sprung him.

Holy cow! Why not Sirhan Sirhan next?

More proof that leftists are mentally ill. Decisions like this will only stop when Gascon’s enablers are affected by them.

This maniac a destroyer. He is not a ‘reformer’, he is not a ‘progressive’ – he is a destroyer, bent on destroying society to serve his master, Soros.

The goal, of course, to replace the society destroyed. And replace it with fascist control.

Gacon is a sick, sick bastard and should be the target of the most vigorous recall ever.

Los Angeles is bad off enough with the incredible putz Garcetti it has for a mayor. This Gacon guy is the Soros cherry on top.

Gacon’s goal is to do to Los Angeles what he did to San Francisco: he destroyed it.

Follow the recall efforts:

OT, but this should be a new thread –

45th President’s Answer to Article of Impeachment-Final

Looks like a pretty clear cut of Bill of Attainder. Especially with Roberts bowing out.

    But this isn’t the United States of American anymore. A junta with a demented frontman (frontperson?) runs the country now and with all three branches (chambers as per AOC) firmly in their control .. any interpretation other than published by the party organs (XiNN, WAPO, NYT, etx) is null and void.

    Having the cop lie in state in the Rotunda is beyond the pale especially since we do not know what he really died from. I am just waiting for the Dem’s BlutFahne to be used to have the military pledge allegiance to the Party. Mitch McConnell will be the honorary flag bearer.

People like Manson bring out my right wing side. He should have been executed. Call me cold but the cost of keeping a serial killer in prison is a waste of money. That money could have been spent on something better.

    You cant have it both ways. Your mainly left wing side – and people like you – causee all this chaos.

    Now you complain about it?

    How comical.5

      Both ways of what exactly. Its perfectly reasonable to have a policy position on law and order that sits differently on the political spectrum than other areas of policy that I have.

      Left wing causing all the chaos eh, that clearly isn’t true. conflating all actions that are chaotic as being derived from the left is a moronic statement.

      You clearly have no idea what you are talking about.

        Sorry, bud, but YOU have no idea what you’re talking about.

        You – and the likes of you – voting in freaks on the democrat ticket caused ALL the problems we’re facing. ALL OF THEM.

          If you think a series of insults is a valid argument think again. You have yet to actually provide any valid argument. You throw insults out with no real understanding of my politics and you make gross generalisations that make any pretence of a point absurd.

        I knew you were a fraud mark troll, just setting up your next troll, troll.

Social justice. That said, throw another baby on the barbie, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants. Let us bray.

Bruce Davis is a sociopath – just as Charles Manson.
Sociopaths, like child-molestors, are predators – they cannot be rehabilitated.

Any pardon should be conditioned on his living next door to the DA’s grandkids. Even better, move him in to the guest room at Soro’s house. If he is no threat to society – then there should be no problem with this condition.

I certainly do not want him in my neighborhood

I’m as law and order as most rational people, but the Manson followers are in their 70s, and they’re unlikely to commit new crimes. Leslie Van Houten was free for months when her conviction was overturned and wasn’t a danger to anyone. Had she accepted the plea to second-degree murder, she’d have been out long ago, but she foolishly held out for manslaughter (I think). One of “the girls” was denied compassionate parole when she was dying of cancer and had already lost a leg, when she clearly was no threat. We’ve got to stop releasing or refusing to release inmates based on publicity. As for Gascon, people knew exactly what the carpetbagger was/is — he’d been the SF DA and his policies were well-known.

    They don’t deserve to be free

    I don’t care how old they are

    Jesus, what’s wrong with you

    They should be dead

    JusticeDelivered in reply to zennyfan. | February 2, 2021 at 2:54 pm

    Manson, and his followers deserve no compassion, they most certainly had none. Resources are always finite, and they never should be expended for people like the Manson group.

    No. The purpose of imprisonment is not to just “keep them off the streets” but to show that murder can not be tolerated.

      Kepha H in reply to FOAF. | February 3, 2021 at 8:59 pm

      Originally, Bugliosi sought the death penalty, and got it for the Manson group. However, they were saved by a higher court decision, whih “compassionately” decreed that the law-abiding would have to support those creeps for the rest of their lives. It two weeks between Giuseppe Zangara’s murder of Anton Cermak (he intended to get FDR) and his appointment with the electric chair. That’s about right when the prosecution has proven guilt for murder beyond a reasonable shadow of a doubt.

Is there anyone who wants to make an argument that California is any way redeemable, and how to do it now that elections are faked?

Elections have consequences, especially when many who vote are morons.

Lucifer Morningstar | February 2, 2021 at 4:02 pm

I see no problem with that. As long as Davis is required to live with Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón free of charge. Then I have no problem with it at all. Absent that residency requirement then hell no. Keep the guy in jail to rot until he’s dead.

Progress is an unqualified monotonic process: one step forward, two steps backward. Throw another baby… Fetal-American on the barbie, cannibalize/redistribute her profitable parts, and sequester her carbon pollutants. Forward!

I wonder which lefty actor they’ll kill next?

From the far coast it seems La goes worse every time a new DA starts. Really just get it over with and open the prisons, you know they want to.

When I was a kid we knew what DA really meant.

This is what happens when you don’t use the death penalty.
Nobody’s ever in jail of “life”, even if it’s “life without parole”, because they can be released anytime the Department of Corrections say he or she can.
Once a person walks out of the courtroom, the judge no longer has any jurisdiction over them. They belong to the D.O.C.

Is there anyone who wants to make an argument that California is any way redeemable, and how to do it now that elections are faked?

California has probably been faking elections for decades. The Orange County election a couple of years ago is case in point.

How is it that we keep losing ground to these people? We have been fighting a rear-guard action since forever: they continue to advance, and we continue to lose. They get their advocacies enacted with permanence, while ours are not enacted or are easily cancelled. Why can we not make gains? What are we doing wrong?

According to Ms. Tate, who started the petition, Newsom has reversed the parole recommendation (go to the petition linked to in the article and see her comment at the bottom). I guess ol’ Gavin doesn’t want to give the recall proponents more ammunition…
