Let Him Be, Let Him Be

Mark D. Chapman 1981

The nutcase that murdered Beatle John Lennon has been denied parole for the sixth time on a 20 year to life bid. From Fox News:

John Lennon's killer has again been denied parole, nearly 30 years after gunning down the ex-Beatle outside the singer's New York City apartment building.

A parole board on Tuesday denied Mark David Chapman his freedom after an interview at Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

"A three member panel of the parole board interviewed Chapman this morning and we just got results back a little while ago," NY State Division of Parole spokesman Marc Violette told FoxNews.com. "He has been denied parole."

It was Chapman's sixth appearance before the parole board since becoming eligible for release in 2000. He's eligible again in 2012.

I dare say that Mr. Chapman should prepare himself for the only thing he'll be seeing outside of the Attica Correctional Facility: worms.

He should have been extinguished.

Now he gets to torment the Lennon family and friends every two years for probably a couple months, as Yoko once again thinks about and crafts a letter to the parole board about how he should not be paroled.

He made a fatal mistake and there is no mistaking his guilt. Let him try again in the next life.

Life sentences don't make sense in capital murder cases.

Chapman is the poster boy for this waste of taxpayer dough.

Kid - I really can't call what he did a mistake unless he was aiming at someone else... But absolutely yes - he deserved death.

The fact that I don't care, reminds me of how the 70's made me a cynic.
