    Judge finds Arizona shooting suspect Jared Lee Loughner competent to enter plea. Loughner pleads guilty as part of an agreement that will allow him to avoid the death penalty.


    Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, R-Ariz., one of the 13 wounded in Loughner's Tucson shooting attack that left six people dead, says she is satisfied with the plea deal.

    I'm kind of surprised. He's one who would legitimately have a shot at an insanity defense, I think. His ramblings genuinely seemed insane, and he has a long history of not even being able to sit in a college classroom.

    The Colorado guy, on the other hand, seems to be putting on a bit of an act. Obviously he's got mental issues, but his courtroom performance seemed very put on to me.

    I guess after having been medicated for over a year, they're saying he is now competent to stand trial. He's severely schizophrenic, but competent. I guess the defense felt that life in prison on meds is better than death. AZ is a hard-core state.

    Since this is a non-Stern thread about shooters: how the fuck is the Sikh crime in Wisconsin considered 'terrorism' but the Fort Hood shooting by Nidal Hassan is not? The guy fucking yells Allah Akbar! Politics.....

    Oh, that must have been an error on the part of CBS or wherever I grabbed the article from. She is a Democrat.
