    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.
    she was not. She was a freshman at Yale when this happened. two of her good friends (who did their best to protect her from the unwanted spotlight after this incident) at Yale were well known (now) actors Bronson Pinchot and David Hyde Pierce. I knew Bronson pretty well since we were in the same hall freshman year and in the same residential college the next three. as a result, I met JF a bunch of times and sat with her at various meals. She was understandably upset with this incident and the fact that she, a freshman who made a real effort not to be any different than other 18 year old students, had secret service agents following her around didn't make her life any easier. I have never been all that interested in celebrities but I sure developed a lot of respect for her putting up with what she did and how she reacted. same with her two friends (who were not celebrities at the time)

    I never had any use for Sarah Brady and what she did following her husband's shooting but what happened to James Brady was a real tragedy. its sad the SS guys didn't cut Hinkley in half when he started shooting

    I totally agree with you. This is lunacy.

    Especially because the man who was accused of the shooting was already found not guilty by reason of insanity. He has been prosecuted and found not guilty because he was insane, making this a homicide will not change the lunacy he was suffering from at that time.

    true, and in reality the finding was made at the time-now that Brady has been declared a murder victim, in really shouldn't change the disposition or treatment of JH

    I think people underestimate how routine this is. It also makes sense. If I shoot you and you later die as a cause of my actions it's homicide. Whether it was 10 hours later or 10 years later.

    Well the US is nothing if not vengeful these days, perhaps always has been.

    it's a medical determination, not a criminal justice determination.

    yup....

    I think folks are confusing a medical finding with a legal finding here...... they aren't the same.

    While I agree with the practice, this isn't true. There was a traditionally a year and a day rule in these matters.

    If Brady had been hit by a car or contracted cancer and he died from that, his cause of death would not be ruled a homicide.
    He died from complications of a thirty three year old gunshot wound . Homicide.
