I am concerned about the possibility of parole for the prisoner Mark David Chapman, who was imprisoned in 1980 for the murder of John Lennon. I feel that this man should be denied parole. Mr. Lennon had never committed any infraction against Chapman. In fact, on the day of his murder, Mr. Lennon gave Chapman an autograph. If Chapman could kill a man he did not even know, what else is he capable of, let loose on the street?

Not only this, but he has continued to "cash in" on his fame by way of frequent press interviews, making it clear that he is more interested in maintaining his notoriety than searching for redemption through hard work. In the aforementioned interviews, the man seems to regard his merciless slaying of Mr. Lennon with a childish "I won't do it again" attitude as opposed to a true sense of remorse.

Mr. Lennon was a great asset to New York City. He frequently donated to charities, such as when he donated the finances needed for the New York Police Department to acquire bulletproof vests. It has been written that he gave one tenth of his income each year to a charity for spastic children. He constantly spoke out for peace and understanding. Now, due to this bloodthirsty act of violence, we as a world have lost a visionary of peace.

If you agree with me that this man should in no way, shape, or form be paroled this October, please sign my petition at http://www.petitiononline.com/rem128. This petition gained acclaim in the newspapers when it was first started two years ago (the last time Chapman went up for parole), and hopefully we will be able to have that success again and show that no one wants this man back on the streets. Thank you very much.

That miserable *blob* will never get parole. If he does, some 'crazed fan' will probably equal the score, as usual.

The idea that he's at all rehabilitated or repentant is utter bullshit. His interviews, his statements are all 'me me me', 'look at me I love God now'. He has the fucking temerity to think that John Lennon would've "forgiven him" for what he did.

I wouldn't stress. This nutjob's never getting out, though I'll gladly sign any petition to register my opinion :D

I'll be the first to send Mr. Chapman a letter containing flour.

There are so many people in jail who do not deserve parole, many far worse than MDC, and it is ridiculous to petition to deny parole for every one of them. It's up to the parole board, who have much more experience with this decision than all the people signing these petitions combined.

We saw this exact same thread many years ago.

It won't make a difference.

Yeah, but parole boards have made crazed decisions before, like letting Joel Steinberg out after he killed his adopted daughter. Yeah, fine specimen of human nature that guy is.

Why don't you just post a list of everyone who is currently in prison for murder and petition to deny every one of them parole.

Because JL was an ex-beatle do you think his murder is worse than say the one where a man is accused of murdering his three-year-old daughter and trying to kill his son, or the murder of 2 prostitutes in a "massage parlour".

What's worse killing someone you only know from TV, a member of your own family or killing 2 hookers?

If he's eligible for parole then as long as the board are convinced he is no longer a danger then let him out.

I don't believe John is worth any more than any other victim. I believe that this should instead set a precedent against parole for ANY murderer. It would be much harder to get the same support for an unknown victim, and how would one find out about many of these cases other than by word of mouth? Instead, this brings the issue to the forefront by using a high-profile case to illustrate it. Like the Matt Shepard case did for the anti-hate crime movement.

Why, what crimes has Joel Steinberg committed since?

That's not the issue. For one thing, you don't KNOW if someone is going to commit crimes after their release. Most importantly, life should mean life. There should be no get out of jail free cards for murderers. Their victim will never get a reprieve, why should they? It sends a message to society that murder is not taken seriously.

That's why the parole board's job is to JUDGE if someone is going to commit crimes after their release.

However, I will admit that it is a good point to note that having murderers get out on parole detracts from the deterrent that a severe, definite penalty provides.

But since parole is already a part of our justice system, this is a non-issue to the argument. It is a completely different argument to decide whether or not parole should be available for certain crimes.
