PROCÈS- C'est la septième fois que Mark Chapman demande sa mise en liberté. Aujourd'hui âgé de 57 ans, l'assassin de John Lennon espère un jour sortir de derrière les barreaux.

Le verdict de l'audience, qui doit débuter dans les prochains jours, sera rendu public avant la fin de la semaine. Mais il y a peu de chance pour que Mark Chapman voie sa demande de mise en liberté aboutir. Incarcéré dans la prison de haute sécurité de Wende, à Alden, dans l'Etat de New York, depuis qu'il a assassiné John Lennon de cinq balles en 1980, l'homme a déjà fait six demandes, toutes rejetées.

Condamné à la perpétuité avec une peine incompressible de 20 ans, Mark Chapman a le droit de réclamer sa liberté conditionnelle depuis 2000. Une demande qu'il ne manque pas de faire tous les deux ans. Yoko Ono, la veuve de John Lennon, a fait savoir dès 2000 qu'elle s'opposait fermement à la mise en liberté de l'homme, craignant pour sa propre sécurité.

Mark Chapman avait tenté de justifier son geste, expliquant avoir tué l'ex chanteur des Beatles dans l'espoir "de devenir quelqu'un".

"Je n'y voyais pas clair. J'ai pris une terrible décision en réduisant la vie d'un autre être humain pour des raisons purement égoïstes. Je pensais qu'en tuant John Lennon je deviendrais quelqu'un, mais à la place de cela je suis devenu un tueur et les tueurs ne sont pas des gens."

  • The Beatles-Hey Jude

    Hey, Jude, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better Hey, Jude, don't be afraid You were made to go out and get her The minute you let her under your skin Then you begin to make it better. And any time you feel the pain, hey, Jude, refrain Don't carry the world upon your shoulders Well don't you know that its a fool who plays it cool By making his world a little colder Hey, Jude! Don't let her down You have found her, now go and get her Remember, to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better. So let it out and let it in, hey, Jude, begin You're waiting for someone to perform with And don't you know that it's just you, hey, Jude, You'll do, the movement you need is on your shoulder Hey, Jude, don't make it bad Take a sad song and make it better Remember to let her into your heart Then you can start to make it better
