    JOHN HINCKLEY JR.
    PRESIDENT REAGAN'S SHOOTER RELEASED

    President Reagan's attempted assassin will be a free man again after a federal judge signed off on John Hinckley Jr.'s release from a psychiatric hospital.

    Hinckley was found not guilty by insanity for the the 1981 shooting that left Reagan with a chest injury. His press secretary, James Brady, was paralyzed ... a Secret Service agent, and a cop were also hit.

    Hinckley has been in a psychiatric hospital since his trial. Wednesday morning Judge Paul Friedman said it was a difficult decision, but "The court finds by a preponderance of the evidence that Mr. Hinckley presents no danger to himself or to others in the reasonable future if released."

    He must continue treatment and have no contact with the Reagan family or Jodie Foster ... with whom he was infatuated when he pulled the trigger

    NEWS BRIEF A federal judge granted John Hinckley, the man who shot President Reagan in 1981 in order to impress Jodie Foster, his freedom Wednesday under the condition he lives with his mother full-time in Williamsburg, Virginia.

    “All of the experts and treatment providers who testified during the evidentiary hearing … are in agreement that Mr. Hinckley’s … major depression and psychotic disorder … are in full and sustained remission and have been for more than 20 years,” U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman said in Wednesday’s order. “During this long period of sustained remission … Mr. Hinckley, by all accounts, has shown no signs of psychotic symptoms, delusional thinking, or any violent tendencies.”

    Hinckley was 25 at the time of the shooting and had a history of mental illness. He was obsessed with Foster’s role in Taxi Driver, in which the main character plots to assassinate a presidential candidate in order to win the affection of the character played by Foster. He shot Reagan in the chest on May 30, but the president made a full recovery. Three others, including press secretary James Brady, were wounded.

    A jury found Hinckley not guilty by reason of insanity—a plea that was supported by the American Psychiatric Association. But since that time, he has lived at St. Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, D.C. Since 2014, Hinckley has been allowed to spend about half the month at his mother’s home in Williamsburg. Friedman’s order makes that arrangement permanent.

    I'm pretty sure Jodie Foster is a lesbian. I wonder what he'll do to impress her now?

    He tried to kill the president. For that he should never see the light of day. I bet he ends up in the slammer within a month. You can't fix crazy, just my opinion.

    He tried to kill a sitting President and he's released to live with his mother? What a time to be alive. Also, he looked like a young Bill Belichick.

    Dunno. But he's 61, so 80s at least.

    Perhaps the possibility of Trump winning precipitated this decision.
