Voices for Mackenzie Basham

My daughter Mackenzie Basham pled guilty to 9 counts of burglary in August 2014. She was advised by her attorney to take a deal unethically. She was 19, with a prior of 2 seat belt violations at time of arrest. Allen County Sheriff Samuel A. Crish made a statement publicly of others involved in these crimes in May 2014. No other persons were brought in on any charges associated with this case.Allen County Prosecutor, Juergen A. Waldick, also knew of others involved in these crimes.The head Crime scene investigator on her case was police sergeant Fredrick DePalma. DePalma, 49, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2015 for 35 counts of theft in office and 24 counts of tampering with evidence. He committed the police misconduct on cases in 2014.  DePalma signed every single piece of evidence in Mackenzie's discovery packet against her in 2014. Mackenzie admitted to having stolen property in her apartment and car and being paid to take it to pawn shops. The sentencing judge said aloud that drugs and the "wrong" crowd had put Mackenzie in this situation. In a courtroom full of Mackenzie's family and friends, not one official of Allen County said a word as she pled guilty out of pure fear to every single one of these crimes alone. That would mean 9 burglaries in 3 days, done by one 19 year old girl. She was given a 14 year sentence.  Mackenzie had a 2 year old baby at the time of sentencing, he is now 7 years old.  Please help me be a voice to get Mackenzie a shorter sentence so she can be reunited with her son before 2028. In 2028 her son will be 17 years old, and my daughter will be 34 years old. She has served enough time for her involvement in these crimes and has learned a very difficult lesson. She is now drug free and ready to have a second chance on life. She is a loving mother and a beautiful caring person. She is ready to function in society in a positive way now at 24 years old.  Please help me be her voice on the outside by signing this petition. My goal is to get Mackenzie a commutation of her sentence. This would make her sentence shorter and give an encouraging light at the end of the tunnel for our family who loves her so much. Positive letters of support for Mackenzie can be sent to: Ohio Parole Board Mackenzie Basham #090219 770 West Broad St, Columbus Ohio 43222.

Petition to Governor Gavin Newsom

Keep Charles Manson Cult Killer Bruce Davis From Getting Parole

Bruce McGregor Davis (CDC# B-41079), Charles Manson's true right-hand man, was recommended for parole on June 28, 2019! Only Governor Gavin Newsom can now decide if this killer should be freed or not- so your voices need to be heard to reverse this parole recommendation.  Please sign & SHARE this petition to ask Governor Newsom to deny him parole for as long as possible.  Additionally, you can also send an e-mail, call, or mail a letter directly to the Governor here: To e-mail CLICK HERE - or visit:  https://govapps.gov.ca.gov/gov40mail/(Please list Bruce Davis' name & CDC#B-41079 in your e-mail.) Mail letters to:Governor Gavin Newsom1303 10th Street, Suite 1173Sacramento, CA 95814Re: Bruce Davis (CDC# B-41079) parole reversal or Call Governor Newsom at: 916-445-2841 Bruce Davis was convicted of the murders of both Gary Hinman & Donald "Shorty" Shea. In July, 1969, Bruce Davis drove Charles Manson to Gary Hinman's house where they held him up at gunpoint- demanding money, as well as his cars (using a gun Bruce Davis bought with a fake I.D- which shows Bruce' Davis' intent to participate in these Manson murders & not have his name connected to them). Charles Manson then sliced Mr. Hinman with a sword, cutting his face and his ear in half. After 3 days of torture, Gary Hinman was eventually stabbed to death and suffocated with a pillow by other members of the "Manson Family" cult.  Bruce Davis then personally stabbed Donald "Shorty Shea" in mid-August, 1969 near Spahn Ranch where the cult lived, as he was being murdered by several individuals.  Donald Shea's skeletal remains were not found until December 1977- without any help from Bruce Davis to locate the body (despite his claims of being a Born Again Christian)! This inmate has claimed to be a Christian since the mid-1970's & to be completely rehabilitated, yet NEVER helped the police, nor his victim Donald Shea's family, locate Donald's body.  He diminishes his responsibility still in the murders by stating he committed them to please Charles Manson, placing blame on Manson- rather than taking full responsibility for his own actions and evil choices.  He claims to this day he only cut Donald Shea once on his shoulder (which would not be a fatal wound).  He waited until 2010 to ever mention Manson "family" member Bill Vance being at the scene of the murder of Donald Shea.  He waited from 1969 until his 2012 parole hearing to ever admit he pointed a gun at Gary Hinman while Charles Manson slashed Mr. Hinman in the ear and face. In addition to these two murders, (just 3 months after the Tate/LaBianca Manson murders)- he was found by police in the bedroom of John Phillip Haught who died of a gunshot wound to the head.  Bruce Davis said Mr. Haught died playing Russian Roulette - BUT THE GUN WAS FULLY LOADED AND HAD NO FINGERPRINTS ON IT- not even the victim's!  Bruce Davis then went to London in December 1969 where his fellow Manson cult member Sandra Good's ex-husband Joel Pugh was found with his wrists & throat slashed, as well as a bruise on his forehead- with writing in blood on a mirror- similar to the Hinman/Tate/LaBianca murders.  In 4 MONTHS, (after the two murders that he admits to)- Bruce Davis had direct connections to people either brutally murdered or who were killed under highly suspicious circumstances, yet he was never charged in these deaths.Both California Governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Governor Jerry Brown have denied him parole multiple times. Please let Governor Newsom know you do not want this serial killer being released into free society.Your signatures are GREATLY appreciated!
