    As far as I’m concerned, we shouldn’t even bother to take any time or effort to show the face of Mark Chapman.. It only perpetuates the notoriety this loser was trying to obtain by murdering one of the most profound and influential artists of our time. Your caption reads the “accused murderer” when it should read the “Convicted Murderer.”
