Man who shot Reagan 'ready' for life outside hospital: psychiatrist

John Hinckley, the attempted assassin of US President Ronald Reagan, in Washington, D.C. on March 30, 1981Staff treating the man who shot US president Ronald Reagan testified Friday that he was “ready” for life outside the mental hospital and is so extensively trailed by the Secret Service that the government can know where he is anytime. John Hinckley, 59, who attempted to kill Reagan in 1981, was committed to St Elizabeth’s mental hospital in the US capital but already spends around half the month at his mother’s house in southeast Virginia. On March 30, 1981, Hinckley shot Reagan, his press aide Jim Brady and two others outside a Washington hotel in an effort to impress Hollywood actress Jodie Foster with whom he said he was obsessed. “This is not a hearing for him to be out without conditions,” Hinckley’s lawyer Michelle Tupper Butler told AFP.
