JOHN HINCKLEY -- HEARING TODAY ON MAINSTREAMING IN WILLIAMSBURG, VA

 

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.

HINCKLEY -- IDIOCY OF MAINSTREAMING CRIMINALS


MENTAL ILLNESS -- MORE ON THE IDIOCY OF MAINSTREAMING CRIMINALS

Hospital pushes plan for more Hinckley visits here


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
people in any community in which he lives and operates.

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?

MENTAL ILLNESS, CRIMINALITY, MAINSTREAMING PSYCHOPATHS


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!

JAMES CITY COUNTY VIRGINIA'S PROPOSED TAX INCREASE



As a result of deficit spending of $24 million in recent years for land control, James City County Virginia's Supervisory Board is proposing an unexpected 11% tax increase. This is, in large part, driven by previous boards "marriage" to the philosophies of UN Agenda 21 and ICLEI, of which the county was a member for several years until activists "persuaded" their divorce in 2013. Land development rights, as well as outright purchases were made, even with deficit spending, while critical needs of the county were being ignored. The county is now faced with a tax increase, radical budget cuts or both. This article was published in The Virginia Gazette on April 15, 2015.

Publisher Digby Soloman's April 4 Virginia Gazette editorial “Who's Minding the Store,”addressing the proposed James City County tax increase, was excellent and thought-provoking. However, it was far kinder to the Board of Supervisors, past and present, than it could have or should have been!

The issue of how we got to this state is not being told. Deficit spending and the drawing down of reserve funds is profound mismanagement. The fact that it's now necessary to increase taxes to provide for even a single critical need, storm water mitigation, has a far greater cause than Republican supervisors voting against it. Why did they have to vote it down? Where was the necessary money spent?

The most clarifying presentation of spending over the years, that I've heard, was given by supervisor Kennedy in two venues a year ago. However his recent op-ed on what services would be cut if a tax increase were denied was of a totally different tone – satirical-like. The whole truth is not yet revealed, but it must be. And, those responsible for the dilemma should be held accountable.

Focus is on lost revenue from reduced real estate assessments. To be sure, reduced home assessments produced a revenue shortfall. Such a shortfall could legitimately be thought of as temporary thereby justify use of reserve funds. But, that's not the major part of this story. Money spent for land control is.

I tried to broach the issue of land control and it's costs at the recent Roberts District meeting. Frankly, supervisor McGlennon was not eager to address the the issue and its contribution to budget problems. He stated that citizens approved spending for land purchases. Were they told that tax increases would be necessary? Did they understand the resultant deficit spending and reduction of the reserve fund, hence a lowering of the county's bond rating? Doubtful! Did they anticipate critical needs being set aside to permit spending for land control? Did they expect their supervisors to be driven according to an ideological agenda which they were told nothing about? No! The magnitude of this part of deficit spending is as shocking as the mind-set that drove it is worrisome.

James City County has spent $24+ million for land control since about 2009, $21 million for “greenspace” and $3 million for “purchased development rights.” As late as November 2013, $3.9 million were spent for two “greenspace” properties, $2.6 M for Carleton Farms and $1.3 M for the Gilley farm. Jamestown camp grounds cost the county $12 million in 2009. Whatever one chooses to call this, it's land control, which portends people control, the mind-set of adherents to Agenda 21/ICLEI of which James City County was a member. We were assured that the dues of a few hundred dollars per year were insignificant. True, but the same mind-set that paid these dues also promoted spending millions.

I realize that my analysis and comments will cause mind explosions with some. Sometimes truth, especially with ideological issues, can do that.

Finally, I want to assert that I give way to nobody in love for the land. I grew up in rural West Virginia, where we loved and respected the land and environment. After traveling much of the world, and living in major cites, my heart and soul are still rural. But, I am opposed to control of land and people and the overall agenda of ideologues who have no personal experience and simply promote the agenda of the herd they march with as has happened here. Innocents pay the price of management by ideology rather than by prioritized critical needs of citizens.
