On Monday, a federal judge granted John Hinckley Jr. unconditional release after he shot then-President Ronald Reagan in 1981.

Fox News reports:

“If he hadn’t tried to kill a president he would have been released unconditionally a long time ago,” U.S. District Court Judge Paul Friedman said.

It was Friedman who had allowed Hinckley out five years ago, determining that Hinckley’s mental condition was “in full and sustained remission” and had been for more than 27 years. He had been diagnosed with a psychotic disorder and major depression.

Upon his release from St. Elizabeth’s, Hinckley was required to live with his mother in Williamsburg, Virginia. He also was forbidden from having a firearm, contacting Reagan’s children, or contacting actress Jodie Foster. Hinckley had been obsessed with Foster, and had written in a letter that he intended to assassinate Reagan to impress her.

Hinckley will be released unrestrictedly in June 2022. His attorney Barry Levine celebrated his client’s release, saying it was a “great day for mental health.”

The report by Fox News also noted that the government has been closely monitoring Hinckley for years after his conviction.

Anymore criminals out there? If they are go see this insane judge and you will get away scott free. What is country coming to when criminals have more rights that law enforcement and American citizens? I know, I know that has been the way for decades but it still gets my goat.

America has a bigger problem. Many Countries thanks to the fake Biden administration, are releasing their most violent criminals who are making their way up the Southern Border to America! Why did all rogue corrupt Politicians release violent criminals during the lockdowns? This is definitely a War between God (good ) and Satan (evil) Satan has many followers sadly. God was removed from a Childs early education and now the results are manifesting. Home school your children until this madness ends.

Throughout all of man’s existence of 6000 years or so, there has been a war, the good vs. the evil. Very soon now Satan’s army will win with the destruction of the United States, the worldly protector of Israel, and this will cause all the nations to eageraly accept the New World Order, with the One World Government, and the One World Religion..
But before all of this there is coming the second major attack, I believe it will be approx. 1000 times greater than the Sept. 11, 2001, attack. It will occur in at least three areas, one in Southern California, and two of the upper East Coast, looking most likely to be in or near Philadelphia and Boston.
I believe the third/final attack for us should follow in approx. 40 days or so..
These nations will quickly sign a Seven Year Peace Treaty; although, we know it will be a false peace, and seven short years later all the armies of the world will surround Israel’s army on the Plains of Megiddo for the greatest of all Battles, Armageddon.
