There is a hearing today on mainstreaming would-be assassin, John Hinckley, in his mother's home in Williamsburg, VA. Last week an AP reporter, along with a cameraman, interviewed my wife and me twice for a total of approximately 1.5 hours. We expressed many reasons why he should not be mainstreamed. In both the print-press report and the video, our extensive comments were reduced to basically that we were opposed!! I have had many responses, locally and from other areas, including broadcast media. I will write a more extensive piece tomorrow. In the meantime, please review these post from 2012.

MENTAL ILLNESS -- MORE ON THE IDIOCY OF MAINSTREAMING CRIMINALS
The hospital responsible for the care of attempted presidential assassin John Hinckley Jr. intends to move forward with a plan seeking more visits for Hinckley to his mother's home in James City County.
This is a headline for an article to appear Saturday, Dec, 29, 2012, in our local paper, The Virginia Gazette. In spite of the recent massacre at Sandy Hook School in Newtown, CT, and many other such incidents as contra-indicators, the social workers and psychologists at the hospital where would-be presidential assassin, John Hinckley, has been confined have been fighting for at least two years to mainstream him right here in our community to live with his octogenarian (and not well) mother.
HINCKLEY'S OFFENSE: ATTEMPTED ASSASSINATION OF PRESIDENT REAGAN ON MARCH 30, 1981, DISABLING SS AGENT BRADY AND WOUNDING THE PRESIDENT.
Hinckley was judged "not guilty by reason of insanity." So, insane or insanity can be used to lighten the sentence of a criminal but is taboo to use in describing the criminal in terms that threaten
The misguided social workers and psychologists continuously fought for more visits for him and most recently for housing him permanently with his mother. NOTE: Hinckley has two siblings in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX, area but they don't want him there. The ruse they perpetrate is that people of Dallas don't want him. So, they think we in Kingsmill do?
Hinckley has not been free of problems during his confinement in the hospital in Washington, DC. He has been reported to have problems with personal relationships. It was his infatuation with teen actress Jody Foster that prompted him to shoot President Reagan to get her attention. Does anyone truly think that condition is "fixed." He has also been observed by Secret Service agents following him, going "out of bounds" in his visits here.
Secret Service agents have not recommended his "mainstreaming," nor have local police and residents, nor has the prosecutor in Northern Virginia!! But, social workers will not be stopped. They know better....so they assert. They are wrong, but being wrong doesn't stop them. Theory and emotion trump facts.
IT IS TIME TO STOP THIS MAINSTREAMING NONSENSE AND GET SOME MEANINGFUL REFORM IN MENTAL HEALTH. THE MENTALLY ILL, PSYCHOPATHS AND OTHER CRIMINALS MUST BE CONFINED. WHEN WILL THE MISGUIDED TOUCHY-FEELIES GET THEIR HEADS ON STRAIGHT? NEVER?

MORE ON JOHN HINCKLEY -- From today's Virginia Gazette
Yesterday I posted a headline and some information about would-be Reagan assassin, John Hinckley's, efforts to be mainstreamed in our Williamsburg, VA community. More information is now available and it further supports the idiocy of attempts to mainstream criminally insane people.
In Hinckley's case, a single federal judge, Paul L. Friedman, is pushing, against advice of all others, for increased visitation which portends "eventual mainstreaming." Simply stated, "this is power that one biased person should not have." Of course the judge is biased!! His politics are also predictable. Such decisions are driven by left-wing political philosophy. Always have been.
The judge is "prodding St. Elizabeth's Hospital to proceed with plans to expand overnight visits here to "two 17-day visits followed by six 24-day visits, which could lead to [permanent] convalescent leave here, with his frail octogenarian mother to care for him. MAKE SENSE?? Hardly, except to mindless people who never look at the results of their political decisions. What is right to them is what they can get promulgated into law. Results are never measured. Their philosophy always prevails.
In August 2012, the Colonial Behavioral Health Agency hannounced they would have no part in managing or treating Hinckley here. Judge Friedman also denied a request by Hinckley's lawyer, Barry Levine, to withdraw from the case for non-payment of bills.
So, one misguided, all-powerful judge overrules all others (including objections from 1,000s of people) and orders attorneys for the hospital, Hinckley and the federal government to submit a report by Jan. 18 on "what's next."
So, what is next? Will it be another criminal act? When? What excuse will the judge and other politically misguided people have for it? Of course, to many of these people who are on a mindless march to mediocrity such events have never happened. But, they have and they continue! Einstein's definition of insanity applies to these people. "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome." And, so it is!
