WASHINGTON (June 17) - The man who tried to kill President Ronald Reagan is now allowed to visit his mother more, to get a driver's license and spend more time away from the mental hospital where he lives, a federal judge ruled.
The ruling, released Tuesday, expands the freedoms of John Hinckley Jr. over the objections of prosecutors. They argued that Hinckley is still mentally ill and harbors unhealthy feelings about women.
Hinckley, 54, has been confined to St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Washington since he was found not guilty by reason of insanity in the 1981 shooting of Reagan.
Hinckley shot Reagan and wounded three others reportedly because of an obsession with actress Jodie Foster.

Is it really a good idea to give this man more freedom, more free time out, if he has violent thoughts against women then it's just a matter of time before he does something stupid. what are your thoughts?

I assume most people here know that the Hinckley family is very close to the Bushes.
