    Not being a doctor, I don't feel qualified to make that judgment.

    This type of medical ruling justifies these kinds of asinine statements... Blaming my elementary teachers if I ever get skin cancer and die. Blaming adult beverage makers if I ever died from some alcohol related disease, or Blaming God for creating my life.

    So Teachers are murders, Budweiser is a murder, and so is God.
    Are you really referring to incidental exposure to something that may or may not cause cancer to a bullet?

    Reagan aide Jim Brady's death ruled homicide
    If the cause of death is related to the shooting....why not?

    Yeah, I'm not really sure why people have a problem with this. If the cause of death can be linked to complications caused by the gunshot, why wouldn't the gunshot be the cause?

    Truth and justice. However for John Hinckley, it will barely matter. He was given an insanity verdict over the shooting to begin with. If it's brought to trial again, his lawyer will likely have him plead the insanity defense again. It will be a formality.

    Overturn a coroner's ruling on the cause of death? Yeah...right! His death was either connected to the shooting or it was not. If it was....it's homicide.

    I disagree. If the cause of death is related to the shooting, they are simply classifying it as what it is....."homicide".

    I highly doubt Hinkley will be charged...and if they do decide ot charge him, the prosecution will have one helluva hill ot climb ( double jeopardy comes into play, as does his officially being designated "insane")
    Double jeopardy would probably be invoked and I doubt that anything more can be done to Hinkley......however classifying Brady's death as a homicide is still the right thing to do.

    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.
    Very well stated.

    Agreed. I doubt they are going to waste the taxpayers money on a case that will not bring further punishment. They are simply updating the classification from attempted murder to homicide, for the sake of justice and history. I am sure that Brady's survivors agree.
