It was a horrible tragedy the day that gunshot occurred. The intended victim was President Reagan, but his secret service guard pushed him into the car & left poor Brady, a press secretary for Reagan, who just happened to be standing nearby & suffered a near fatal shot. Getting a shot to the head is usually fatal, but in this case, was equivalent to a massive stroke. Making Brady crippled for the rest of his life.
The shooter was a friend of the George H.W. Bush family. (Or more precisely, a "son" of the Bush family friend). His name was John Hinckley, who
was apparently judged "not guilty" (due to insanity). He was kept in an institution for a long time, then gradually let out for "family visits" (for longer & longer periods) --- 12 visits a year, (for 10 days each, in 2011) & in 2013, each visit was increased to 17 days. (Thereby cutting his prison sentence down to HALF).
All this special "favoritism" was given to Hinckley, due to his parents were friends with Geo. H.W. Bush, so see that "Wealth hath its privileges."
SOON we shall see if people go "scott free" after the victim of Hinckley's gun assault has DIED, all of these years later.
