John Hinckley, man who shot US President Ronald Reagan, granted unconditional release

Would-be presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr., has been granted unconditional release in June 2022 by a federal judge.

Hinckley wounded President Ronald Reagan and three others outside Washington D.C. hotel in a failed assassination attempt in 1981.

A federal judge ruled on Monday September 27 that the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan four decades ago, can be freed from all remaining restrictions next year if he continues to follow rules and remains mentally stable.

Hinckley was found not guilty by insanity for the 1981 shooting that left Reagan with a chest injury. His press secretary, James Brady?, was paralyzed, while a Secret Service agent, and cop were also shot. He was committed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in D.C. after the verdict, where he lived until 2016 when a federal judge signed off on his release, with restrictions.

Hinckley is now 66 years old and has been living outside a mental health facility for the past few years, a result of a gradual lightening of supervision. His lawyer said the "momentous event" of Hinckley's full release in June is both appropriate and required by the law.

Prosecutor Kacie Weston said the Justice Department agreed to a settlement but wanted to monitor Hinckley for the next nine months because of two big changes in his life: He's living on his own for the first time in about 40 years, and because one of his primary doctors is preparing for retirement and disbanding Hinckley's therapy group.

It is expected that the Justice Department will file a motion with the court before June if it had fresh concerns about Hinckley.

Hinckley also on Monday apologized to the people he shot, the American people, and actress Jodie Foster, whose attention he tried to win with the act.

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation And Institute, however, said in a statement that it thinks Hinckley is still a threat and it strongly opposes his release. The institute said in a statement;

"Our hope is that the Justice Department will file a motion with the court leading to a reversal of this decision."

This is however coming after a California Parole Board recommended that President Robert F. Kennedy's assassin be granted parole

  1. I have stale concerns about Hinkley. Let’s say you’re a young man who has a crush on a famous movie actress. Well, what better way to get her interested in you than assassinating the President?,,!! Yeah, I’m sure the nation will forgive you seeing as how you were anxious to engage Ms. Foster’s amorous desires. This is so mentally retarded he should have been immediately euthanized. So, John, do you see how attempting to kill President Reagan was not an appropriate means by which to establish a social connection with Ms. Foster? “Well, before I pulled the trigger, she ignored me . But now she knows about me . Come June 2022, I’m going to a gun show to stock up on assault weapons and plenty of ammo, then head straight to Ms. Foster’s home in Los Angeles. She’s been thinking about me the whole time! Bet she can’t wait to see me.”
