Parole hearings of John Lennon assassin show a deeply shameful man

Parole hearings of John Lennon assassin show a deeply shameful man

The scales of the law can be unbalanced when it comes to the Beatles. Last week, Mark David Chapman was denied release for his second-degree murder sentence for killing John Lennon in 1980. The original sentence was 20 years to life, and though Chapman has an excellent behavioral record, to put the man who killed a Beatle on the streets would be a danger—to Chapman himself.

 

Nonetheless, Chapman once again expressed his regret and shame for his actions, saying he's come a long way from being the deeply disturbed young man who shot Lennon in the back 5 times:

"I recognised that that 25-year-old man, I don't think he really appreciated the life that he was taking, that this was a human being," he said. "I feel now at 53 I have grown into a deeper understanding of what a human life is. I have changed a lot."

He also apologized for the pain he has caused Yoko Ono and their children. He was smart enough not to apologize to Beatles fans, which would have made the celebrity issue a legal matter and would have hurt his impossible case even more.

 

In any case, Chapman was denied parole, as expected, for the fifth time. He's next scheduled to be up for parole in August 2010, and don't expect the results to be any different.

"THE PRESTON BRIEF"

THE PRESTON BRIEF IS A PUBLIC DOCUMENT CURRENTLY BEING PROTECTED AT PRESTON CITY COUNCIL, LANCS, ENGLAND. IT HAS NOT YET BEEN RELEASED FOR PUBLIC VIEWING.

THE DOCUMENT IS CO-AUTHORED BY DR. DAVID BARTON AND IS A WELL CRAFTED BRIEF DIRECTING PEOPLE TOWARDS VARIOUS CRIMES THAT WERE COMMITTED OVER THE PAST 50 YEARS WHERE JUSTICE HAS FAILED. ANALYSTS BELIEVE THE GRAMMAR, SPELLING ERRORS AND PUNCTUATION ALONG WITH STYLE OF WRITING IS A CLUE TO HELP DIRECT PEOPLE TOWARDS PERSONS THAT ARE INTENT ON DESTROYING MANKING IN THE EARLY 21ST CENTURY. ONE ANALYST HAS ALREADY SUGGESTED THAT THERE IS A HIDDEN CODE CONTAINED IN THE WORDS THAT DIRECTS THE READER TOWARDS A MYSTERIOUS SECT INTENT ON DEATH AND DESTRUCTION.

THE PRESTON BRIEF MUST BE READ BY ALL FREE CITIZENS OF THE WORLD. ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN DECIDE WHAT IS FACT, FICTION AND WHAT WILL HELP US CREATE A BETTER PLACE FOR OUR CHILDREN TO INHERIT.
