(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: John Hinckley, the man who attempted to kill President Ronald Reagan on March 30, 1981, as Reagan exited the Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., following a speech to the AFL-CIO labor union, has been granted total freedom by U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman.
In addition to Reagan being struck and almost killed by a bullet that ricocheted off the presidential limousine, White House press secretary James Brady, Secret Service agent Tim McCarthy, and D.C. police officer Thomas Delahanty were shot and wounded.
Brady suffered extensive brain damage and was disabled for the remainder of his life. When Brady died in 2014, his death was classified as a homicide because it resulted from the gunshot fired by Hinckley. Hinckley was never tried for the murder of Brady.
Although charged with attempting to assassinate Reagan, Hinckley was found not guilty by reason of insanity. For decades, he was confined to St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, a psychiatric hospital in the Southeast quadrant of Washington, DC.
Since 2016, Hinckley has been living full-time in Virginia under restrictions.
With today’s ruling, Hinckley will be relieved of any restrictions and free to live and go where he pleases, starting on June 15.
