However, only the politically naïve would ever believe that Davis will actually be released. The memory of the Manson family cold-blooded murders is embedded in the DNA of America. Davis himself had been convicted of two of those murders.
In Huffington Post, Michael McLaughlin reports:
" ... [that decision] gets reviewed by the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation staff and then can move to the governor, who can reverse, modify or ignore the board's parole recommendation."
The odds are that Davis will die in prison. The court of public opinion can be more power than any regulatory procedures.
