From Spencer S. Hsu and Ann E. Marimow's 7-27-16 Washington Post article entitled "Would-be Reagan Assassin John Hinckley Jr. To Be Freed After 35 Years":
"Thirty-five years after he shot President Ronald Reagan and three others outside a D.C. hotel, John W. Hinckley Jr. will be released from a government psychiatric hospital, a federal judge ordered Wednesday.
"The ruling ends the institutionalization of the one of the nation’s most notorious mental health patients.
"Outrage over Hinckley’s acquittal in the 1981 shooting reshaped the insanity defense in courts across the country. The revelation that he had pulled the trigger to impress a movie star added obsession and celebrity to the case. And extraordinary television footage of the attack on the 40th U.S. president brought the event to millions of American homes.
"In Wednesday’s court order, U.S. District Judge Paul L. Friedman wrote that Hinckley, 61, no longer poses a danger to himself or others and will be freed to live full time with his mother in Williamsburg, Va. His release could come as early as Aug. 5 and is subject to dozens of conditions, some of which could be phased out after a year if Hinckley adheres to them."

In conjunction with the aforementioned Washington Post report, I highly recommend listening to Mae Brussell's thorough analysis of the Ronald Reagan assassination attempt (from April of 1981, the first part of which was broadcast only a few days after Reagan was shot). If you're the impatient type, I suggest beginning Part 1 at 17:37:

Synchromystic Sidenote: Fortean researcher Loren Coleman would no doubt file the following BBC news report (published on 7-29-16, just a few days before the Washington Post story regarding the release of Hinckley) under the "Twilight Language" heading: "Hinkley Point Delay 'Frustrates' Chinese Investors."
