    JUDGE: REAGAN SHOOTER CAN LEAVE HOSPITAL TO LIVE IN VIRGINIA
    ASSOCIATED PRESS
    […]
    Despite the restrictions, life in Williamsburg will likely be busy for Hinckley. The judge ordered him to volunteer or work at a paid job at least three days a week. He has sought out work and volunteer opportunities, but so far has been unable to secure employment. According to court records, he has said it was difficult for him to ask for jobs at Starbucks and Subway while being followed by the Secret Service: "It made me feel awkward and uncomfortable."
    According to court records and testimony at a hearing on the issue of his release, he has spent time volunteering at a church as well as a local mental hospital. . .

    John Hinckley Jr., Who Shot President Reagan, to Be Released After 35 Years

    by Erik Ortiz

    John Hinckley Jr., the would-be assassin who almost killed President Ronald Reagan, will be freed after 35 years in a mental hospital, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

    The judge granted Hinckley, 61, permission to live full-time in the home of his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia, after finding that his continued treatment at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington, D.C., is "no longer clinically warranted or beneficial." ...

    I'm thinking they no longer wanted to pay for his stay.

    As I sit here and watch Ronald Reagan and Errol Flynn in "Santa Fe" I am struck by how lucky we Americans are that Hinckley was not successful. He should never get out. <modsnip>

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    Judge: Reagan shooter can leave hospital to live in Va.

    Associated Press 9:37 a.m. EDT July 27, 2016

    Washington — More than 35 years after he tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in an effort to impress actress Jodie Foster, John Hinckley Jr. will be allowed to leave a Washington mental hospital and live full time with his mother in Virginia, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

    Judge Paul Friedman wrote that Hinckley — who currently spends more than half his days at his mother’s home — is ready to live full time in the community. Friedman granted Hinckley leave from the hospital starting no sooner than Aug. 5.

    Doctors have said for many years that Hinckley, 61, who was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the shooting, is no longer plagued by the mental illness that drove him to shoot Reagan...

    Reagan is dead, insanity isn't

    Mental illness is serious business in this day and time, I hope the doctors got this one right. 😕

    By today's standards Hinckley almost certainly would not succeed with an insanity defense. He may suffer from mental illness but he likely knew right from wrong. He's fortunate to be released but I doubt it serves the interest of society.

    Don't forget the Jodie Foster factor:

    “Hinckley, who shot the president and multiple others when he emptied his revolver outside a Washington D.C. hotel in 1981, had written a letter to Foster the day of the shooting, telling her his actions were for her love.

    "By sacrificing my freedom and possibly my life, I hope to change your mind about me," Hinckley wrote, according to reports at the time. "This letter is being written an hour before I leave for the Hilton hotel."

    Hinckley continued: "Jodie, I'm asking you to please look into your heart and at least give me the chance with this historical deed to gain your respect and love."

    Although Hinckley was set to be freed Wednesday, there are numerous restrictions to his freedom, including having no contact with Foster. Foster, who starred in Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, the film which inspired Hinckley to attempt the assassination, had no comment on Hinckley's release.”

    He has been on the loose for quite awhile visiting his mother. Cheaper to have him out,

    I imagine his mother has the means to be vigilant. I bet she has household help

    His mother is 90 years old. Does anybody actually expect a 90 year old woman to be able to monitor what he is doing?
    Just my opinion

    Dr Drew is discussing this at this very moment

    85% poll said he should not be released

    Dr Drew read letter he wrote to Jodie Foster

    Will be monitored when around women
