George Wallace Shooter Freed After 35 Years

I remember quite well good old boy "no nigras" Wallace, I could almost say it seems a lifetime ago, but then it is. The shooter would no doubt agree.

The gunman who tried to kill Alabama Governor George Wallace on the US presidential campaign trail in 1972 has been released, prison authorities say.

Arthur H Bremer, 57, was sentenced to 53 years for injuring Mr Wallace and three others in Laurel, Maryland.

He has served 35 years of his term and is being released for good behaviour.

Mr Wallace gained national prominence in the 1960s vowing "segregation forever" but later disavowed his racial views. He died in 1998.more
