“‘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.
