Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman was sentenced to 20 years to life and has previously been denied parole 5 times and now he can add another denial to the list. Yoko Ono, John’s wife has made a special plea that Mark be denied parole citing her fear that she or her children could be at risk if the murderous lunatic is released. There is no justification for allowing Chapman to get back his life after he cruelly and selfishly took John Lennon’s. Chapman says that he murdered Lennon because he had been seeking notoriety and fame to counter feelings of failure.
Today he was denied bail for the sixth time – a good decision on the part of prison officials. John Lennon was a great man who had many years of productive contribution remaining – because of Chapman we will never know what Lennon could have done and what we will forever miss.
