John Lennon’s Killer up For Parole, Again [POLL]
Here we go again. The man that killed John Lennon is up for parole this week. Can’t we just lock the door and throw the key away?
Mark David Chapman , 57, will be interviewed by the parole board for the seventh time this week at New York State’s Department of Corrections. Their decision will be release by the end of the week.
He has been eligible for parole every two years since 2000. Luckily, it’s been denied every time. I know this is how the law works and all, but I hate that this guy’s name comes up couple of years.
According to Reuters:
After his last hearing in 2010, the three-member parole board cited in written comments to Chapman, the “disregard you displayed for the norms of our society and the sanctity of human life.”
Ahead of that hearing, the parole division received dozens of letters arguing against Chapman’s release, including one from Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, who said she believed Chapman posed a risk to her, Lennon’s two sons, the public and himself.
I agree with most, that Chapman will never be released. It’s probably best, because he wouldn’t make it on the outside for very long…if ya know what I mean.
