To Be Or Not To Be: Bruce Davis's 28th hearing!


Well, it looks like the time has come once again for Bruce Davis to attend another parole hearing, which will be held Wednesday, March 12th at 8:30 AM PST. This will be his 28th parole consideration hearing! WOW! So, who all thinks it is time for Bruce to pack up & go home? How many are in favor of him staying indefinitely at California Men's Colony? As long as we're asking questions, how many of you out there in MansonBlogland think Bruce & company are responsible for more deaths? In my honest opinion, I don't think Bruce Davis, if released would be a danger to society, but.....has the punishment really fit the crime? Remember, a lot of people back then ended up 6 feet under while in the vicinity of the Manson Family. Why is that? I find it too much of a coincidence, don't you? Now, if this man can convince the parole board, especially after they listen to Deputy DA Patrick Sequeira sounding off, and to letters that will be read aloud from victim's next-of-kin-representative Debra Tate, and Manson-Family expert Barbara Hoyt, it will be a miracle! Please, let us know what you think? Will Bruce be burrowing back into his bottom rack, or boarding a bus to Freedomland?

This will take place about 7 miles from my house. Maybe I'll catch Deb and Babs downtown having lunch.

I don't think that he should (story has changed too often), nor will he (bad politics for the Gov) be released.

Patrick might give us some clue as to what's on Tex's tapes. Does he mention Bruce being involved in other murders ??

Barrie said...

I would like for someone to ask him what really happened to John Haught (Zero). No one believes the official story of what was said to have happened. That was a murder. I would like to know why Davis kept secrets about Bill Vance and Lawrence Bailey for 40 years. If he can finally be honest about these incidents then I would feel better about his claims that he is reformed. If he is paroled I think the same thing that happened last time will happen, Governor Brown will deny him. I hope Davis is a changed man. I do believe that some people can change.

Barrie said...

I hope Tex Watson rots in jail forever though. He is human garbage. He was the most bloodthirsty murderer. His recent interviews show that he is delusional. He seems to think Harry Potter books and non Christian music are part of the worlds evils, and just as bad as being a serial killer like him. He's such a pierce of shit.

Barrie said...

If it was up to me I wouldn't release Bruce yet. I don't see why Debra Tate or Barbara Hoyt should be able to make statements. Bruce was not involved in the incident at the Tate house at all. I'm sorry, but Barbara Hoyt is a liar. I'm not sure what Barbara Hoyt is getting out of her lie. I've been on Santa Susana Pass Road many times. I know the location of the Shea murder and where Barbara claims she was. It's not close. She did not hear screaming from that far away.

They can't ask him anything having to do with Zero, because it does not have anything to do with the cases he was convicted for. The DA can only ask questions pertaining to the Hinman/Shea case, although he usually doesn't adhere to the rules. He's a naughty, naughty DA, who brings up ridiculous things, gets victims/perpertrators names mixed up, and completely ignores the rules of the hearings. He also brings Debra Tate, and now, Barbara Hoyt to a lot of the hearings. Of course, when I think about what these arrogant killers did to their victims, I don't blame the DA for doing anything he can to keep the creeps locked up. Look at what they did! Horrible & nightmarish, indeed.

What exactly did Bruce do to deserve life? He didn't kill Gary. Shorty is speculation. Sticking a knife in Shorty isn't murder, it's assault with the intent to murder. Any other murders people try to connect Bruce to is also speculation. It's like Clem getting life because of the LaBianca's murder.

I'm not one that believes in being lite on punishment. I strongly believe that as Tex's guilty verdict was being read, they should of started tying the knot to hang his ass when they were done. Same for Pat and Susan.

Mr. Spudnut said...

CORRECTION: "Shorty is speculation" I meant to say Zero is speculation.

AustinAnn74 said...

Well, I wouldn't want to be at the receiving end of just a simple stick of the knife. He is guilty in the participation of an extremely brutal murder. They gang-stabbed him. The poor man had chop marks on his bones. He died in excrutiating (did I spell that right?) pain.

My guess is the only way Bruce Davis leaves prison is in a pine box I say good riddance

Yep, I agree with Ann and William. Also, by looking at the pic, it seems the idea that your ears get bigger when you get old is true.
Whenever it seems like these peeps will get out, I hope everyone involved in the decision thinks about having them as their neighbor. If Bruce moved here, my crap would be packed in about 5 minutes.

AustinAnn74 said...

Bruce, if released would have a big surprise awaiting him. The cost of living in California, alone would traumatize him, probably. Not only is he elderly, but he would have to go out, find a job, and support himself. Who the hell is going to hire a man that was in prison for over 40 years for murder, and an ex-Manson Family member? Who is going to rent him an apartment? They do background checks for just about everything nowadays. Of course, maybe he would have family support, but a lot of times, family, and friends don't come through when the going gets tough. I don't think he realizes how hard parole is, if he were to get it, which I seriously doubt. The DA is going to plant a lot of doubt into the board's head, sort of like he did the last time. Also, he is bringing in Barbara Hoyt, AND Debra Tate, which I think is a bit unfair, but hey! It wasn't fair to gang-stab anyone either! The DA ALWAYS brings up Tate/LaBianca for all the parole hearings, including Bobby Beausoleil. He tries to get the board to realize that they were ONE big group, who were responsible for many brutal killing. Also, this Bill Vance/ Little Larry thing is starting to surface, which didn't in years past. I looked at the statistics on grants/denies for parole in Cali, and it aint good. The governor reverses 70% of grants. Sheesh! I don't think Bruce is coming out.

THE BIG WHAT IF ?

What IF Bruce was the real Zodiac Killer? or just killed others? What does that do to the Bugliosi Charlie's the mastermind KING of KILLERS theory ?

What IF the two cops spending months listening to the "TEX" rapes discoverd that TEX was the actually Supreme Killer ? Do they let the old man walk free ?

What happens THEN to the little old guy sitting in prison for over 40 years, who was supposed to be SATAN incarnate ? Do the cops THEN go back and look for the friend of Voteck who feared for his life because HE knew it was a drug deal thing which triggered the Tate Massacre.

Do the cops THEN go looking for the KILLER(s) of ALL the others - like Zero, Merrick, Howard, etc. ? How about a $100,000 reward for each of those killers ?

The 1970 Rubin Salazar assassination will be the subject of a PBS special in May.

orwhut said...

Robert,
Those are some very interesting questions.

Vera Dreiser said...

Um, they got the killer of Merrick, Robert, unless you're suggesting the guy didn't do it --or was somehow coerced to by someone else.

Dooger said...

Same as before: suggested parole by board, overturned, more tax dollars.

Hamburger Hoyt will tell her false sob story, Debra Tate will be there talking about a murder irrelevant to Davis' case...

same shit, different episode.

Just let Davis out, he is half in the grave as it is. Since he is divorced, he better home his kids want to take care of him if he gets out.

Marlene Ful said...

I do not think he will get out.I do not think he is a changed man I dont think he would murder again but he must stay in prison.He had the power to come and go as he pleased from the Manson gang he choose to stay and be a part of these crimes.

I vote for Bruce to stay incarcerated for life. I will not lose any sleep over it when I hear he was turned down. To some, this may seem "unfair." I do feel sorry for his daughter, who hasn't known him as a free man. I just am having trouble feeling sorry for him. I do not think he has ever been truthful about the incidents he's been questioned about. He minimizes the impact of his admitted involvement. If he has been helpful to other incarcerated men through his Christian beliefs, this is fine with me. He should stay behind bars, helping others, IMO.

orwhut said...

If law enforcement would put up some road signs with then and now pictures of the killers, telling that they are still in prison, it might deter a few crimes.

toocrowdedinthishouse said...

P.S. I also don't want Patricia Krenwinkle released, or any of the others. Sorry to seem unforgiving. I was a child in LA for the murders, and they were just horrible and sickening. Freedom is a privilege that certain people do not deserve.

Barrie said...

I disagree with those that say none should be released. I support the release of Leslie Van Houten. Patricia Krenwinkle no. She was a bloodthirsty sick killer. Tex, never, Manson, no. I hate that false hood that people repeat about how he never killed anyone. Shorty Shea, tying up Leno, slicing Hinman's ear I half.

Barrie said...

Free Leslie. There are many reasons to free her. As for Bruce Davis, not quite yet. I think Bruce might have gotten involved due to peer pressure, like LesliePart of me wonders if that might not be the case at all though. I do suspect his involvement in other murders. I don't quite trust his rehabilitation. Free Leslie though.

Barrie said...

Bruce has been caught a few times over the years lying to protect other prisoners. That doesn't sound rehabilitated. Would I want Bruce to be my neighbor? Hell no!

Jenn said...

What Barrie said about lying. Neighbors? No way. Until last summer when I moved to the other side of town, I lived less than a mile from his ex-wife. No thanks
