Fourth bid for release


SACRAMENTO: After 43 years behind bars and 30 parole hearings, officials have again decided it is safe to free Charles Manson follower Bruce Davis.

They recommende­d Davis be paroled in the 1969 slayings of musician Gary Hinman and stuntman Donald Shea.

It’s the fourth time for such a recommenda­tion, but the 72year-old Davis remains imprisoned at California Men’s Colony in San Luis Obispo with a series of state governors saying he remains dangerous despite his age.
