The man who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan is set to go free, after a judge decided Wednesday to allow would-be assassin John Hinckley Jr. to live with his mother in Virginia full-time.

Hinckley is set to begin his "convalescent leave" on Aug. 5, according to U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman's order.

“I’m very glad this happened after Mrs. Reagan passed on,” said Reagan’s 1984 campaign manager Ed Rollins, referencing the death of Nancy Reagan in March. “It would have been a very disturbing thing for her.”

Friedman wrote that "all of the experts and treatment providers" who testified during the hearing agreed that Hinckley's issues -- major depression and psychotic disorder -- were "in full and sustained remission and have been for more than twenty years."

"Mr. Hinckley is clinically ready for full-time convalescent leave," Friedman wrote.



I'm sure he's a piece of work after being in prison for that long. Hinckley's family was close to the Bush family.  But of course, it had nothing to do with the assassination attempt.

Charles Manson?  I don't think hes dead yet...Wiki says hes alive and well.



News 8 – California – Charles Manson, leader of the 1960’s cult group the ‘Manson Family’ was found dead in his Prison cell early Friday morning. Correction officers approached Manson’s cell after they heard strange noises of banging and hollering at approximately 3:17 AM. When they arrived at Manson’s cell, they found him on the ground with a slit throat –  alongside him, a suicide note which read:

 “As I write this letter, I feel my soul rising to greatness. I am God, a great leader. These children that come at you with knives, they are your children. You taught them. I didn’t teach them. I just tried to help them stand up. But you will see, I am immortal. My body may lay here right now, but in less than 24 hours I will rise from the dead just like the great Lazarus, exactly like Jesus – because I am God!”

Charles Manson was found guilty in 1971 of conspiracy to commit the murders of seven people: actress Sharon Tate and four other people at Tate’s home; and the next day, a married couple, Leno and Rosemary LaBianca; all carried out by members of the group the ‘Manson Family’ at his instruction. He was convicted of the 1969 murders through the joint responsibility rule, which makes each member of a conspiracy guilty of crimes committed by fellow conspirators.

Charles Manson was survived by his three sons and one daughter. Funeral arrangements are currently being made where they are expecting large crowds of supporters as well as angry protesters. The Westboro Baptist Church has already announced that they will picket the funeral.
