2. Was John Lennon's murder political?

I always considered his murderer to be a bit insane (and not particularly political). Am I wrong?

4. I don't think so, but...

the graphic isn't necessarily about politics, just people who spread messages about peace meeting violent ends

5. Let me put it this way:

It's unsubstantiated. There were elements in the Nixon Administration and the FBI who desperately tried to deport John Lennon in the Seventies. When the matter was dropped, it's possible to surmise that their sentiments to neutralize him didn't subside and they chose another method or venue to accomplish their goal.

Mark David Chapman was a man with delusions. I'm not saying Manchurian Candidate, but like John Hinckley Jr., his mental status could make him susceptible to suggestion and pliable in the hands of others. Possible, but not probable.

3. Malcom X was assasinated because he told us all...

 

...to "live in peace and harmony and to love one another"?

This is just silly...
