Is Jared Loughner Going toto Plead Guilty in Tucson Massacre Shooting?
It is being reported at the LA Times that Jared Lee Loughner is going to plead guilty to the shooting deaths in the Tucson massacre. Loughner is charged in the January 8, 2011 Tucson, AZ massacre where six people were killed, including 9 year old Christina Greene. Loughner also injured 13 people, including US Rep. Gabby Giffords (AZ-D) who was shot in the head and has since retired from Congress. It is suspected that mental health officials will now state that Loughner is now competent to understand the charges against him and he is expected to present his plea in federal district court Tuesday.
Jared Lee Loughner is set to plead guilty Tuesday in the shooting attack that severely wounded Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, according to knowledgeable sources, as mental health officials believe he is now competent to understand the charges against him in the assault, which killed six people and injured 13 at a gathering with the congresswoman’s constituents in Tucson.
At the hearing Tuesday morning in U.S. District Court in Tucson, psychiatric experts who have examined Loughner, 23, are scheduled to testify that they have concluded that despite wide swings in his mental capacity, at this time he comprehends what happened and acknowledges the gravity of the charges, according to two sources who spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was still unfolding.

Though I doubt he will, his Lawyers would save alot of taxpayers dollars on Appeals if they advise him to do just exactly that.
Then they need to take Loughner, and the recent lunatic from the Colorado Movie Masscre and make them Bunkmates.
Then, after that, a mysterious Prison Gas Leak in their cell only should be sufficient.
