John Lennon’s killer seeks parole for the sixth time

Mark David Chapman could face parole board as soon as Tuesday


John Lennon’s killer is up for parole for the sixth time just months before the 30th anniversary of Lennon’s death. Mark David Chapman is scheduled to be interviewed by two members of the parole board as early as Tuesday. Chapman’s last bid for parole in 2008 was denied “due to concern for the public safety and welfare.” Chapman is serving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for the shooting death of Lennon outside Lennon’s New York City apartment on December 8, 1980. He has served 29 years of his sentence at the maximum-security Attica Correctional Facility, where he has not had an infraction since 1994. In previous years, Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono has submitted a letter requesting that parole be denied. Lennon would have turned 70 this October.

  1. chapman should rot in hell for what he did to a true talent!!

    • John Lennon was a very spiritual man, it was all peace and love with him, he would of let Chapman out.

  2. Kill John Lennon get 29+ years in prison.
    Bring down an airplane and kill 270 people in an act of terrorism and you get 8½ years (Lockerbie Bomber).
    Sounds like its better to be a terrorist than kill a celebrity. Screwed up isn't it?

  3. I see whats going on in MACLEANS.CA , whats going on in the world, I saw :Lennon as a hippie who thought he was a Christ like figure and what happened to him was like everything else, meant to happen.
    Parole granted

  4. Chapman a sick born again did not share Lennon's view that the world would be better without religion. see " Imagine" . Chapman and like minded dim wits joked and even made up songs about doing away with Lennon for his transgression. Chapman thought he would be a hero. He is just proof Lennon was right.

  5. wanna hear a story? the guy wrote some songs for lennon and lennon never paid him after many many calls and tries to get his commission he went nuts and shot this dude and meanwhile lennon made millions on songs this prisoner wrote….how does that grab your socks?….nothing is ever as it seems!….number one trick to reality

    • thank you delford you explain the mind and world well …way to beat a dead horse!

      • i don't think you have a clue!… put your blinders back on and go back to your cozy lil make believe world..

    • You believe that ? I have a bridge for sale in down town New York.

  6. I Will Kiss Mark David Chapman If He's Released.

    • I Made A Mistake. I Meant Kill.

  7. I Will Kill Mark David Chapman If He's Released.
