Brown denies parole for Manson Family member

Gov. Jerry Brown on Fri­day denied pa­role a second time for Charles Man­son fol­low­er Bruce Dav­is. A state pa­role board in March deemed Dav­is, 71, suit­able for re­lease from his life sen­tence. Brown dis­agreed, say­ing Dav­is “con­tin­ues to paint him­self as a pass­ive bystand­er” in the killings that oc­curred 45 years ago.
