Start spreading the news!!!!
This is really happening!!!
A parole board has decided not to release John Lennon's killer, Mark David Chapman, after his interview that took place today via teleconference at Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.
It was Chapman's sixth appearance before the board since becoming eligible for parole back in 2000. He will be eligible once again in 2012.
The board wrote to Chapman that they remain concerned about "the disregard you displayed for the norms of our society and the sanctity of human life when, after careful planning, you travelled to New York for the sole purpose of killing John Lennon" and that "release remains inappropriate at this time and incompatible with the welfare of the community."
