TIME: Patti Davis on Hinckley, Zakaria on Gaddafi

In an essay for the latest issue TIME (left), which goes on newsstands tomorrow, Patti Davis writes that “Thirty years after he shot my father Ronald Reagan, [John Hinckley] spends one-third of the year as a (mostly) free man. Davis describes in TIME how Hinckely’s actions continue to affect the lives of those he shot that day and their families, while Hinckley enjoys increasing freedoms, including 10-day visits to his mother in Williamsburg, VA each month. She argues, “There are times when the American legal system works brilliantly. There are times when it fails. The story of John Hinckley should always include this: As far as the victims are concerned, he beat the legal system. He had wealthy parents who bought him a tenacious lawyer.”
