Wanted to do a little research on the Reagan/Brady shooting to spice up my Friday night. Not surprisingly, most of the interesting info turned up here:
Many anomalies to contend with, not the least of which is whether John Hinckley Jr. exists
or is a sim. My guess is they used an influential Bush friend family (if that’s true even) to prevent questions and investigations. It seems Brady was a model for the Giffords acting job. Lack of blood, strategic positioning of gun prop by his head. I was leaning towards Reagan being shot by his secret service protector who pushed him into the car, but now I don’t see any reason for him (or anyone else) to have been shot. Like JFK, I doubt anyone was injured in the making of the made for TV movie. Frank Reynolds and Sam Donaldson were completely over the top in their dramatic presentation. The purpose of all this fakery is simple fear mongering and anxiety inducement. Create laws to make order out of chaos.
Now I’ll watch some more Jesse Ventura Conspiracy Theory Season 3 to really get my fear factor up.
