On March 30, 1981 President Ronald Reagan was gunned down in broad daylight by a man named John Hinckley Jr. He has spent the majority of the years following his conviction in a mental facility as he was found to be insane. There was a lot of conflict in the verdict because psychiatric reports had him listed as insane but the prosecution insisted that by legal terms he was still sane and competent enough to serve his sentence in prison. Hinckley’s team has spent the last 10 years slowly but surely inching him towards freedom until finally in December a recommendation was accepted by U. S. District Judge Paul Friedman.
He accepted the recommendation from Washington’s St. Elizabeths Hospital that Hinckley be allowed to leave for 17 days a month, up from 10 days a month, to stay with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. Friedman later went on to issue a 29-point order that would lay out the terms of Hinckley’s release. It includes details about Hinckley’s Internet use, travel, volunteer work, walks within his mother’s subdivision, therapy and medication. Hinckley is free to roam unsupervised but must avoid government centers and have a GPS enabled cell phone on him at all times.
According to the March 17th print edition of GLOBE magazine there has been nothing but outrage from those living in the same neighborhood as Hinckley’s mother. He has not been cured of his illness and is still seen as a violent threat to society. That’s not the kind of guy that they want wandering through their subdivision – even if he does have his phone on him!
