Chapman was a patsy set up for the hit by the CIA's MK-Ultra
program.  Why? 
Because Lennon was due to win his U.S.
citizenship a few months later


 

Not that the rest of this drivel isn't nonsensical enough by itself, but didn't John already famously win his citizenship in 1975? The same week that Sean was born?

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

He attained his green card in 76, but that's different from actual US citizenship. He would have gained citizenship in 81.

Well, I mean they had a confession & eyewitnesses - wouldn't that pretty much wrap it up? 

Aside from conducting a psychological evaluation to determine whether or not insanity was a factor, I mean.


The simple fact is that if the evidence is looked at, it does not add up. Mark's claim that the Catcher in the Rye caused him to murder
John Lennon would clearly make him insane. To be driven to murder a fellow man by a book is not sane behavior. And yet on the day Mark was pleading guilty, the judge completely ruled on the spot that Mark was not insane. This is in spite of all sorts of different psychological evaluations that the judge had in his possession. Mark represented himself enough to the judge to "claim his guilt" so he clearly is not insane. No one from his past ever spoke of Mark's insanity, he had a wife and worked overseas and with refugees from Vietnam when he was with the YMCA. 

 But what would his motivation be if he isn't insane? I think that in itself would be worth investigating.

I can't remember the whole thing unfortunately, but I read on some conspiracy-theory website that they somehow tied in Richard Nixon to John Lennon's death at the end of 1980 because I guess George Bush was working as head of the CIA under Nixon and was VP under Reagan.

The main point of the article, to me, sounded mainly like "Republicans are bad," though, like they wanted to make that point and wrangled John Lennon's death to make a point. 

I'd like to think this theory is complete garbage because the idea of a *government* wanting to hunt down someone who is basically a *rock star with an opinion* is completely sad. He had a strong and powerful opinion, but at the end of the day, that's all it was. Nothing to be killed over, especially if it was sponsored through the government.
