This image says so much about this tragic event.

As court artists we see the aftermath of gun violence in court:
a weeping family member, horrible frightening testimony, an awful piece of evidence.
This photo shows what words can sometimes not describe.

Below is a piece of artwork by Aggie Kenny who, as a Lennon fan, was faced with the unpleasant assignment to draw the man who shot John Lennon, Mark David Chapman; seated with a copy of Catcher in the Rye. A copy of the novel was in Chapman's possession when he was arrested on December 8.

Chapman is currently incarcerated in the Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, New York
On August 23 2012, Chapman was denied parole by a three-member board. 
He may apply for his next parole hearing in 2014
