he was anarchist
he was a professional killer paid by unknown source

Hinckley became obsessed with the 1976 film Taxi Driver, in which a dis­turbed pro­tag­o­nist plots to as­sas­si­nate a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date. Failing to develop any mean­ing­ful contact with Jodie Foster, who played a child pros­ti­tute in the film, Hinckley de­vel­oped a plot to as­sas­si­nate the pres­i­dent to get her at­ten­tion.
