John Lennon Was Assassinated 33 Years Ago Today (VIDEO)

In mid November of 1980, I told all my close friends John Lennon was about to be assassinated. I said the powers that be were going to blame a lone deranged crazy fan, and that this person would never have a trial. I don't know how I knew all of this.

I was driving my taxi in Manhattan on that beautifully warm evening of December 8, 1980. I was listening to Vin Scelsa on WNEW 102.7 FM, when just before 11 pm he announced that John Lennon had been shot, and then a few minutes later, crying, he announced the death of John Lennon.


Webmaster's ( Commentary: 
John Lennon's son insists that he was assassinated by the US Government due to his increasing popularity and espousing of views that challenged the entrenched power structure.

The US Government was trying to revive American militarism just five years after the fall of Saigon, but the public was listening to John's "Imagine" and starting to ask why the world described in that song could not be brought about.
