mark-chapman (1)John Lennon’s Killer Mark David Chapman Denied Parole For 9th Time

The mention of that man’s name makes us flashback to the evening of Dec 8, 1980. The Beatles were so awe-inspiring that we reacted as if a family member had died that night. Even more than crushing the dream of their reunion that was truly a possibility according to Paul, Ringo and George – before he died. The injustice we all felt was almost paralyzing.

Chapman who is now 61 will stay behind bars at the Wende Correctional Facility for the next two years. His next parole hearing is in August 2018.

Why? The Parole board said, “We find that your release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would so deprecate that seriousness of the crime as to undermine respect for the law,” So, would someone try to kill him? Maybe, but no one has killed Casey Anthony even though many thought she killed her 2-year-old daughter Caylee. Jodi Arias was convicted of murdering Travis Alexander in another high profile case but no one killed her. We should point out she’s in jail. When Canadian Karla Homolka was released from jail with most thinking she helped kill three young ladies including her own sister and no one killed her. Are the Beatles different? Impossible to compare for sure.

Would he kill again? Is he still on medication and would he still take meds after release?

I certainly don’t want this guy to see the light of day but I really don’t think anyone would kill him. Yoko Ono expressed concern for herself and both of her sons safety if he gets out and she also said Chapman’s life could be in danger as well.

Chapman’s had a clean prison record since 1994 but if you killed John Lennon chances are you’re never getting out. – by John Beaudin
