Manson Associate Bruce Davis Granted Parole. Thanks Venus!

Convicted killer and former Charles Manson associate Bruce Davis was granted parole, officials from the state prison system said on Wednesday.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s Board of Parole Hearings granted the order for Davis, 71.

The decision was made during a parole consideration hearing at California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo.

The decision was the result of Davis' 28th parole suitability hearing.

The suitability finding is subject to a 120-day decision review period.

If the grant is finalized at the conclusion of decision review, the governor may conduct an independent review of the decision.

Under California law, the governor has 30 days to reverse, modify, affirm or decline to review the Board’s decision.

Davis was sent to state prison on April 21, 1972, with a life sentence from Los Angeles County for two counts of first-degree murder and conspiracy to commit murder and robbery.

He was convicted for the July 25, 1969, murder of Gary Hinman and the murder of Donald “Shorty” Shea sometime in August 1969.

Davis has been granted parole twice – in January 2010 and again in October 2012.

Davis’ first parole grant was reversed by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger in June 2010.

Davis challenged the reversal in court, but it was upheld in 2012. Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. reversed Davis’ second parole grant on March 1, 2013.

For anyone who hasn't yet tuned-in to Brian Davis' Radio Show... or at a minimum, listened to his archived podcasts... I would highly recommend it.

I've been blogging for years... and until now, we never had the opportunity to hear so many important figures connected to this case, being interviewed "live".  Our TLB community never had a radio show of it's own.  It just didn't exist.  This is a unique opportunity.

In the past... any interviews we heard as TLB enthusiasts, were pre-recorded by big studios in some far away place... usually, a long time ago.  We had no input.  These interviews are being conducted "live" by one of our own, and we have the opportunity to offer suggestions and questions.  As I said... this is truly a unique opportunity.

It's one thing to read someone's words in a book... but when you hear them speak "live", it brings a third dimension to the table.

Brian really does have some great guests on his show.  I honestly don't know how he does it.  Heck... if someone managed to contact and interview just six TLB-related guests in a calendar year, it would be remarkable.  Brian manages to interview someone of significance, almost every other week.  As I said... I'm not really sure how he does it.

Beyond the content of his interviews... his chat room is the most fun you can have sober, with your pants on! LOL  LOTS of cool people in there... and plenty of jokes.  Check it out... Sunday evenings at 8PM EST.  Just press the "Listen Live" box in the upper left corner of Brian's website, and you're listening.  (Website Link Above)
