Ranch Hand Swartz at Shorty's trial


looks like they are holding hands like lovers.



Donald "Shorty" Shea


Shorty (crouching) performing as an extra in one of the few movies shot at Spahn Movie Ranch.

I think Shorty had to "come to now" because he was always in George Spahn's ear.  He didn't care for the drugs, runaways, car chop shop, or the heAlter skelter dance club.  He probably over heard things - I am sure.  They say Shorty had George finally convinced to get rid of The Family.  It is rumored that everyone in the hard core inner circle we're involved.
The men of the Family "participated" in the actual killing.
Charlie,Tex, Clem and Bruce.
A couple of the girls packed up his belongings into his foot locker. One or more drove Shorty's car to where it was found.  Supposedly some dug the grave.  Leslie I think, kicked his dead body down the hill. Clem alone, buried him.  I recall reading somewhere the police found Shorty's car parked in a residential neighborhood 
somewhere,quite awhile after he went missing.  Inside the car was Shorty's foot locker and his bloody cowboy boots.  Gypsy's fingerprints  and Bruce's palm print were found on the foot locker.  I think it was Bruce who pawned Shorty's matching guns. 

According to CA Department of Corrections this is how you get your parole.
Once you are granted your parole by the Parole Board,there is a review of the findings.  The review is to determine if there are any errors of law or fact and can take up to 120 days.
If after the 120 days the decision still stands, the case goes to the Governor of Cali.  The Governor has up to thirty days to review the boards decision.  He says yes or no to parole.
It then goes back to the Board.  Even if the parole board denies someone or approves someone, The Govenor can reverse it.
At the beginning of 2010 Bruce was granted parole.
On 6/29/2010  Arnold said no Bruce can't go home. 
I understand the Gov has the last say on who can and can't be paroled.  What does that mean for Bruce?  Sit and rot until your next parole hearing?  That has to suck.

Things I Wonder About Bruce

I wonder if he got all excited and thought he was really going home to his wife and pre-teen daughter. 
I wonder if he vowed to never watch another Terminator or Predator movie again.
