The man who shot Ronald Reagan is to be totally released from court supervision following DOJ deal
· Sep 27, 2021 ·

When it isn't suing states to make sure more babies are aborted or keeping people who put their feet on Nancy Pelosi's desk in jail without trial, I'm really not sure what the DOJ is thinking these days.

John Hinckley Jr., the man who attempted to assassinate former President Ronald Reagan in 1981, won unconditional release from his state-mandated supervision on Monday.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) agreed to a deal with Hinckley's attorney and a federal judge accepted it, allowing the 66-year-old to begin living life without court-ordered restrictions and mandated supervision of his doctors.

Hinckley was 25 when he tried to assassinate former President Ronald Reagan outside a Washington hotel in 1981.

He was ultimately found not guilty the next year by reason of insanity.

In 2016, Hinckley was allowed to live with his mother, who passed away last July at age 95.

While Reagan recovered and made light of the assassination attempt, the attack wounded multiple other people, including White House press secretary James Brady was left paralyzed until he died in 2014.
