Well, that sure is an interesting angle. I'm not what you would call a true believer in the whole "Manchurian Candidate" conspiracy theories though. I'm not going to rule it out, but are there any reasons why Loughner would have personally wanted to kill the judge? Without a FOIA request is there any way to tell if the judge had ruled on any specific cases that were specifically concerned with or affected Loughner? I admit that I haven't kept up with the whole issue since it died down on the news, I've been busy with other items of interest, but does anyone know whether Jared Loughner had a personal stance or "manifesto" about the judges rulings you mentioned such as the Brady Bill, Illegal Immigration, etc...?
Like I said, interesting angle. I have thought about it before but I'd like to rule out more plausible "mainstream" theories before I jump on the Manchurian Assassin activated by the President's Men bandwagon...lol
