Today in the News - A Murderer Still behind bars? Say it ain't so

Man who shot John Lennon denied parole for 7th time

How is this front page news?  Sentenced to 20 years to life.  This is surprising?

I wonder if he'd still be in jail if he'd committed the crime in Great Britain, say London?

How is this such a shocking piece of news? Is it getting that bad - that serving 32 years for MURDER is that big of a deal?

I wonder how much his prison term has cost the taxpayers of New York and this country over the years?

People getting PAID, making a living, reporting the news - and this is the best they can do.

Thanks for nothing Captain Obvious
