    Thumbs up A Fitting End!!!

    May his soul rot in hell!!!

    Convicted killer of 4 Calif. officers found dead
    (AP) 5 hours ago

    DELANO, Calif. Authorities say an inmate convicted of killing four California Highway Patrol officers died over the weekend at Kern Valley State Prison in an apparent suicide.

    Sixty-seven-year-old Bobby Augusta Davis was pronounced dead early Sunday morning after correctional officers found him unresponsive in his maximum-security single cell.

    Davis was serving four consecutive life sentences for the April 6, 1970 murders of George Alleyn, Walt Frago, Roger Gore and James Pence. The "Newhall Incident" had been the deadliest for California law enforcement until the fatal shooting of four Oakland police officers in March.

    Davis originally received the death penalty, but his sentence was commuted when the state's highest court banned capital punishment in 1972. Autopsy results are pending.
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
    [George Washington (1732 - 1799)]

    Thumbs down Burn baby burn!

    I agree, may the gates to hell be opened then welded closed for this POS no good human being.
    As today's police officers you are not unlike your counterparts of years past. You are an elite group of select members, a brotherhood of highly trained professionals, who are called upon to protect your community in a time of need. Guardians for safety. Being a police officer is not for the faint of heart. You must be honest, trustworthy and fearless in the face of evil. You are being watched everyday. Represent yourself, your department and the shield, for it should always be the embodiment of all that is good and justly. You are the thin blue line. Be proud, be tough and be safe.

    The Newhall incident changed alot with the way officers were trained here. The sad thing is it takes incidents like these to get changes that are needed impleminted.

    Not just in California , pgg. It had a major impact across the country and was the single greatest reason for the development of the felony traffic stop. Everything in the felony traffic stop doctrine was designed to prevent another tragedy on the scale of the "Newhall Incident ".

    It's such a pity it had to end this way... It would have been better if his end wasn't of his choosing.

    But it would have been more of a pity if he had lived for another 15 years while he made a mockery of the judicial system.

    He should have been executed like he executed Jim Pence. Ofc. Pence was the last offiicer in the fight. As a wounded Ofc. Pence was struggling to reload his six shot revolver from a dump pouch , Davis walked up on him and shot him in the head. Those four officers saved a countless number of their brother/sister LEOs over the proceeding years because of the bloody lessons learned from their selfless sacrifice. Speedloaders and later bullet resistant vests and semi-auto handguns became issued equipment to uniform patrol officers in part because of the Newhall Incident and are as much a part of their legacy as the changes to how street cops were trained.

    Newhall and NORCO both were *huge* in changing training.

    I was just a child of 6 yrs old when this happened and still living in Los Angeles at the time.

    This son of perdition has had it coming for a very long time and most likely would have been gone by now if the state of CA hadn't of revoked the death penalty when they did. What I want to know is what in the hell was Davis doing in Kern Valley? To be closer to his family? They should have kept him in Pelican Bay or Folsom.

    I'm glad that Twinning committed suicide instead of being a burden on the California prison system. Davis should have done the same.

    CHP: The Newhall Incident

    Bobby Davis was sentenced to die in the gas chamber, but in 1972 the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty to be cruel and unusual punishment and in 1973, the court modified Davis's sentence to life in prison. For many years, he was incarcerated at Folsom State Prison, but was last known to have been moved to Pelican Bay State Prison, the home of California's most notorious criminals.
    May the four officers, whose lives he took, continue to rest in peace. And the families, especially the kids, continue to know that their loved ones did not die in vain. If I am not mistaken there was a innocent bystander and former Marine that came on the scene and tried to engage these idiots but was very limited on the firepower available to him at the moment. Too bad Davis wasn't killed then. He was hit. LE nationwide has learned a lot from this most unfortunate incident, so I hear.

    California Highway Patrol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Our dear former Governor and President Reagan said it right.

    Of the incident, Ronald Reagan, the Governor of California at the time, said the following words: "If anything worthwhile comes of this tragedy, it should be the realization by every citizen that often the only thing that stands between them and losing everything they hold dear... is the man wearing a badge."
    Be safe out there, all. Never Forget!!!

    Davis committed suicide

    Good Riddance

    The Associated Press: 2 notorious Calif. inmates commit suicide

    On Monday, officials announced that Bobby Augusta Davis, 67, had died a day earlier at Kern Valley State Prison, in the heart of the Central Valley. Davis was found hanging in his cell.


    Davis was serving four consecutive life sentences for the April 1970 murders of four California Highway Patrol officers. The so-called "Newhall Incident," which killed George Alleyn, Walt Frago, Roger Gore and James Pence, had been the deadliest encounter for California law enforcement until the fatal shooting of four Oakland police officers in March.

    It has always bothered me that those whose death sentences that were commuted when CA repealed the death penalty didn't get them re-instated when CA reversed it's decision. I don't think any tears would be shed to see Manson and others get put to death. I don't think these killers should have the right to breath any longer than is necessary considering their crimes.

    My dad, I miss him every day.
