Lennon Killer Moved From Attica to Wende Facility

A man I can actually say I despise, Mark Chapman, 57, was transferred from Attica’s Correctional Facility to the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden for unknown reasons.

Peter Cutler, spokesman for the state’s prison and parole system, told The Buffalo News that “it’s unusual for a transfer to take place after such a lengthy stay in one facility.” But honestly, what could he possibly be doing that’s worse than the crime that put him behind bars?

Former maintenance man from Hawaii, Chapman traveled to New York City with a plan to kill former Beatle, John Lennon. Dec. 8, 1980 Chapman shot at Lennon five times, outside the Manhattan apartment where Lennon lived. In 1981, Chapman spent time at the Sing Sing facility before his stay in Attica.

Chapman’s been at the Attica facility for 31 years, after receiving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison. The Parole Board has rejected all of Chapman’s parole attempts. August marks his next eligible time for parole and Yoko Ono, Lennon’s widow, has been expected to protest in August. She believes he’s still a threat. I agree.
