    I agree with you.... but let's not get too far ahead of ourselves here.

    a medical examiner determining the cause of death is "homicide" doesn't mean that anyone will be charged with murder.

    personally, i'm not surprised the casue of death is homicide... i'd actaully be surprised if it wasn't.
    get shot in the dome has some nasty lasting effects... and it seem brady eventually died becasue of his.

    Reagan aide Jim Brady's death ruled homicide
    This is already accepted as a matter of law in nearly every state, if medical analysis show causation.

    Totally agree. Brady just didn't fall over and die last week. From 1981 he has never had normal operation of his limbs and mostly confined to his wheelchair. Brady's career was over and his life cruelly ruined.

    Meanwhile, Brady has enjoyed freedom most murderers don't. From the above article:
    Hinckley has been allowed to leave the hospital to visit his mother's home in Williamsburg, Virginia, and can now spend more than half of his time outside the hospital on such visits.
    Hinckley almost killed a living president and destroyed this man's life. Of course he was found conveniently insane so never did hard time.

    Sucks to commit crimes , doesn't it.

    Correct records. (New charges are unlikely, since the man was found insane at the time)

    He was clearly insane. The finding was appropriate.

    Re: James Brady Death ruled a Homicide.

    The coroner found that Brady died from injuries received when Hinckley shot him. He never "healed" correctly.
    It took thirty three years for those injuries to finally kill him.
    It doesn't matter if it took thirty three minutes or thirty three years for Brady to die from his gunshot wounds ... there is no statute of limitations on murder... ever.
    Hinckley just graduated from "attempted assassin" to murderer.
    I wonder if Jodie Foster is impressed.

    I doubt he will even be charged, let alone convicted.

    The coroner determined that if Brady had not been shot thirty three years ago he would still be alive.
    Brady was 74. had he not been shot he may have lived to be ...who knows 80? 90? possibly 100?.

    Hinckley is insane and so not fit to stand trial ...so no he won't be tried or convicted.

    All that is achieved is that the record will now show that Brady's cause of death was homicide and not natural causes.
    What if Brady were your dad? Would that record matter to you?
