John Lennon’s Killer Denied Parole for 7th Time

Good news! John Lennon’s killer Mark David Chapman has been denied parole once again! This is the 7th time he has been up before the parole board.  Earlier this week, we were told Chapman would be interviewed by the board and the decision would be release by the end of the week. Well, they weren’t kidding.

According to the New York Post:

“Despite your positive efforts while incarcerated, your release at this time would greatly undermine respect for the law and tend to trivialize the tragic loss of life which you caused as a result of this heinous, unprovoked, violent, cold and calculated crime,” board member Sally Thompson wrote. Board members Joseph Crangle and Marc Coppola agreed.

“The panel notes your good conduct, program achievements, educational accomplishments, positive presentation, remorse, risk and needs assessment, letters of support, significant opposition to your release and all other statutory factors were considered,” Thompson wrote. “However, parole shall not be granted for good conduct and program completions alone.”

Thank you Sally! The article also states that at the previous hearing Chapman said he had thought about shooting Johnny Carson or Elizabeth Taylor instead, but he chose Lennon because he was more accessible. Oh, that just makes me want to cry.  I remember in an interview, John Lennon had said he loved New York City because he could walk around and be a part of the city.

Chapman can try again for parole in two years. I have a feeling it will still be a “heinous, unprovoked, violent, cold and calculated crime” for a very, very  long time.
