Good Thing John Hinckley Jr. Only Shot the President. If He Sold Drugs, He Might Still Be Locked Up.

Good Thing John Hinckley Jr. Only Shot the President. If He Sold Drugs, He Might Still Be Locked Up.

Hinckley’s release had me thinking about Luis Rivera, Barbra Scrivner, and Antoinette Frink: the three non-violent offenders who received a cumulative 185+ years in prison for far lesser crimes than shooting the president. All three were convicted of non-violent drug charges. Rivera was convicted of trafficking cocaine and was sentenced to life in prison. He served 30 years of that sentence—nearly as much time as Hinckley.
