Reagan shooter's voice comes through in court documents

Posted:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The man who shot President Ronald Reagan wants more than anything to "fit in" and be "a good citizen."

John Hinckley Jr. has explored getting a fast-food job, and loves to drive. His musical tastes run from Elvis and Paul McCartney to Nirvana.

Hinckley has been barred for years from talking to the media, but court documents made available this week contain rare snippets of his voice, including regrets about the shooting.

More than 100 pages of court documents provide a fuller picture of what Hinckley has been doing in the last two years as he has been allowed to spend more time outside a Washington mental hospital.

A federal judge is considering whether to let Hinckley live full-time at his mother's home in Williamsburg, Virginia.
