Saying he still poses a threat to society, Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday blocked parole for Manson family member Bruce Davis. “Until Davis can acknowledge and explain why he actively championed the Family's interests, and shed more light on the nature of his involvement, I am not prepared to release him,” the governor wrote in his decision. Davis, 26 at the time of the killings, was convicted and imprisoned in 1972 for his role in the murders of two men, ranch hand Donald “Shorty” Shea, who also worked as a Hollywood stuntman, and aspiring musician Gary Hinman.

A California parole board has once again issued a grant of parole for convicted Manson family killer Bruce Davis. Gov. Jerry Brown now has 150 days to decide whether Davis, 71, should go free. Last year, Brown concluded Davis still posed a threat to society and blocked his release. “Until Davis can acknowledge and explain why he actively championed the Family's interests, and shed more light on the nature of his involvement, I am not prepared to release him,” Brown wrote at the time.

The sister of actress Sharon Tate says she felt sick to her stomach this week after Manson family killer Bruce Davis was issued a grant of parole. Davis was convicted for his role in the 1969 murders of two men - ranch hand Donald "Shorty" Shea and aspiring musician Gary Hinman - but was never implicated in the murders of Tate and four others in a Benedict Canyon home, nor in the Leno and Rosemary LaBianca killings. PHOTOS: The Manson family murders Davis has repeatedly been issued a grant of parole, with review boards citing his good behavior, "positive adjustment" and involvement in other self-help programs since his conviction and incarceration in 1972.

THE MOST superfluous traffic sign in California is the one on the short spur road that winds along the bay front to the state penitentiary at San Quentin. The sign says "NOT A THROUGH STREET." On a February morning of record-low 32-degree chill, Stephen Kay, a tall, deaconish Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, drives past the sign and parks at the road's windswept end. A body search completed, Kay is escorted to a prison conference room. He has a few minutes to arrange his papers for the latest in nearly 20 years of confrontations with Charles Milles Manson, mastermind of the peculiarly unforgettable mass murders that badly rattled California in August of 1969.
