Want to be a Hero?
New Questions About the John Lennon Assassination
December 25, 2013
He says he wanted to be famous. Killing John Lennon would give him the fame he wanted and make him a hero to those who wanted Lennon killed because he had said he was more famous than Jesus Christ. With planning that went back over 3 months including a logistical concern of going to Georgia to get hollow point bullets from a friend. He knew the hollow points were more deadly than others he had or could have gotten.
He would be the 'Catcher in the Rye'. The one who caught the innocents just before they ran through the rye field and over the cliff to their death. Killing John Lennon was somehow the same. Maybe his murder would convince those innocents that their really is a heaven in spite of what Lennon's song 'Imagine' proposed.
In spite of this line of reasoning he was found competent and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for the assassination. His name is Mark Chapman and he is still in prison today. After some research and further investigation it is clear to me that he is a 'Dream Killer' and to some extent even killing his own dreams. What he isn't is the kind of killer/assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, James Earl Ray and Sirhan Sirhan is - or is he?
Was Chapman insane, a clear headed cold blooded killer or was he a hero? Or was he something else? Apparently he was a hero to those who believed the leftist/communist leanings of the 1960s/1970s free love and permissive drug use culture led by John Lennon and his peers were taking America to hell. There is no indication Mark Chapman had ever killed anyone before nor did he have a criminal history of any significance. So the Gary Revel Investigation of the Assassination/Killing of John Lennon begins. I'm not sure where it will take me at this point but it will be an interesting journey; that I am certain of.
