Clinton Appointee Judge Grants Reagan Shooter Extra Leave Time

U.S. District Judge Paul Friedman has seen fit to give John Hinckley “extra” time at his mother’s Virginia home. Apparently, an attempted assassination of a US President is not that big of a deal to a liberal Clinton appointed judge, seeing that the President was Ronald Reagan and all.

One could only imagine the outrage on the left if a would be assassin of a Democratic President were granted liberal visits to “Mom” after such a crime. Especially if the release was ordered by a Republican appointed judge (which most likely wouldn’t happen).

And when you add the fact that under the Obama Administration’s watch, Lynette “Squeaky” Fromme, the woman who attempted to kill President Ford, was released from her “life” sentence in August, 2009, it seems that shooting a president is not that big of a deal.

And when you consider that both Hinckley and Fromme were fans and followers of Charles Manson and that Hinckley has written to the now executed serial killer Ted Bundy, is it really a good idea to ever allow these people back into society?

And what of James Brady? While Hinckley has tea and crumpets with Mom, Brady is incarcerated in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. Hardly seem just.

Any attempt on the life of a President is an attack on America, no matter the reason. The perpetrators of such crimes should receive the death penalty. At the very least, they should never be allowed to return to society. The fact that we now have two would be assassins freely roaming the streets of America, although Hinckley is still somewhat restricted,  is a travesty and it sends the wrong message.

Partisan politics should not play a part in the decision to show mercy on these criminals. There should be no mercy. Period.

Likewise, Jared Laughner, the would be assassin of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, must never be allowed to walk the streets again. Ever.

Anyone who targets an elected official should know without a doubt that they will never again be a part of America, at least outside the walls of an institution.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
