So a man who attempt to assassinate the President of the US is allowed to leave prison and visit his family and go to bookstores, but people who smoked a little crack or meth get to spent their entire lives behind bars. Got it.

Well I feel a lot safer knowing that he's adhering to a strict schedule under the watchful eye of his handlers, giving him few opportunities to break away to inform his beloved Jodie Foster that he's out. Yup, it's allllll good.

As long as nobody tells him she's out, then we're all good I think.

Well sure Reagan's safe, but apparently McKinley and Lincoln should be a little bit worried.

FTA: There, an agent saw him looking at what appeared to be a row of books including one on the assassination of President William McKinley and another on the killing of President John F. Kennedy.

Hr didn't just attempt to kill Reagan. He did kill The Greatest American Hero (the lead character had the same surname, which, once John did his attempt to woo Jodie Foster, proved too much of an embarrassment for the network to continue the series).

We've got people serving life for three-strikes laws where their 3rd strike is something stupid like shoplifting, and then you've got a jackhole like this that tried to assassinate the President (and nearly did) and he's allowed to go out visiting and spending a good amount of time on the outside.  Seems pretty farked up to me.

Replace 'anything wrong' with 'attempted murder' and I agree 100%

Mr. John Hinckley, Jr. attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981. The final episode of The Greatest American Hero aired on February 3, 1983.

Following the attempted assassination of the President, the producers of the show changed the main character's surname to "Hanley", but his name was restored to "Hinkley" at the start of the second season.

The Greatest American Hero was ultimately a victim of executive meddling that forced too many bizarre plots into a show whose greatest strength was in addressing the consequences of an ordinary, well-meaning man being gifted with superpowers that he did not fully understand.

Hinkley and Chapman should hang out.

Maybe open up a B&B.

Maybe the answer is to cut the zero-tolerance, three-strikes, mandatory-sentencing bullshiat, instead of making the mentally ill person's life even more miserable by throwing him in solitary for the rest of his life.

2013-04-10 11:41:32 PM  
He seemed legitimately mentally ill and given that no one actually died as a result of his actions, I think he's paid his debt to society. If the attempted victim had been anyone else, he probably would have been out a decade ago.

/actual murderers have served less time than this guy
 
2013-04-10 11:53:34 PM  
The Secret Service might want to consider John Hinckley register to Foursquare so they can track where he checks-in.

A friend of mine works at the hospital responsible for his care. She's told me he's generally just, well, ordinary. And very caring for all the cats. So just one of any number of messed-up dudes, only this dude shot the president.
 
2013-04-11 12:24:22 AM  
I've long been surprised there aren't more Reagan (attempted) assassination conspiracy theorists given the Bush family's chummy relationship with the Hinkley family and strained relationship with the Reagans.  I reckon it's because Reagan lived?

Down, girl. The drug laws in America are bad, but not that bad. I don't know of anywhere in the US where "smoking crack" gets you a life sentence, unless you're a 3d-striker with enhancements.

Also, Hinckley is in a mental hospital, not prison. Sirhan Sirhan, who killed RFK, is still in prison, and will never get out.

Yeah. He's serving two life sentences. One for each Sirhan.

None of that is HIPAA related. It's got nothing to do with his treatment.
 
2013-04-11 01:49:15 AM  
Ultimately, officials want Hinckley to live outside the hospital full time. Officials and Hinckley's lawyer have said he is no longer dangerous and the mental illness that led him to shoot Reagan in an effort to impress actress Jodie Foster is under control.

As you read this remember that #1 it's all about the money and not about anything else
And
#2) There is no cure for mental illness.

Were I Ms. Foster, I would sue to keep his ass behind bars until I was dead from old age.
Just because Raygun is dead means nothing - now it's gonna her.

I used to be pen-pals with him before all his troubles started. I have to confess: I'm the one who broke the news to him that Ronald Reagan was farking Jodie Foster.

/my bad

Right, because a guy walking around in public feeding cats is covered by HIPAA.

Do you even know what HIPAA is? It's the laws that prevent health care workers from divulging personal information about clients. This includes your friend telling you information about Hinckley, who is absolutely covered by it.

There's only two possible scenarios. She either does not know the specifics about him so her claims mean nothing, or she does know his specifics and has violated HIPAA.  I honestly don't care either way, but you're casual dismissal is entirely misguided.
