John Lennon’s Killer Up For Parole Again

    Mark David Chapman, the man convicted of murdering John Lennon in 1980, is eligible for parole again this year, and will be interviewed this week to see if he is a suitable candidate for release. Being that the average murderer does something like 11 years, Chapman’s 30 years have exceeded the average and the minimum of 20 years that were his sentence. But expect some entreaties from Yoko Ono, Beatles fans and others in the next few days. Chapman has been eligible for parole since 2000, and has had his parole denied every two years since. I guess I’d want to stay in prison if I killed John Lennon; you’re probably going to be harassed from sun-up to sundown, assuming people know what you look like. [Yahoo
