The man who attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan 35 years ago is now free.
A federal judge in July of 2016 in Washington, D.C., granted a request for Hinckley to leave the mental hospital where he’s resided for decades, to go live full-time with his elderly mother in Williamsburg, Va.
Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis told NPR in a 2016 interview that she thought the “verdict of not guilty by reason of insanity was a bad verdict.” And after the judge’s ruling in July, as Carrie reported, the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute said “contrary to the judge’s decision, we believe John Hinckley is still a threat to others and we strongly oppose his release.”
Hinckley who is now 65, lives with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. The secret service keeps tabs on him. Our tax dollars are paying for this man’s freedom. It’s ridiculous. No one who shoots the President of the United States should ever see the light of day.
“Mr. Hinckley shall abide by all laws, shall not consume alcohol, illegal drugs… shall not possess any firearm, weapon, or ammunition and shall not be arrested for cause,” Senior U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman ordered.
This is an absolute outrage and a disgrace to every single American, and especially to the legacy of the late great President Ronald Reagan.
Now do you understand how they’re doing what they’re doing to General Michael Flynn? Washington, D.C is the most corrupt and vile place in America.
President Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis summed it up for everyone:
“You can’t say well if he shot the butcher it would be different,” Davis said. “He did try to shoot a president. We hold that crime in a different category than we do other attempted murders.”
What are your thoughts on this atrocity?
