Does anyone want to set odds as to whether or not he will be executed - a la timothy mcveigh - "quick and slick"?
at least quick enough to keep him from issuing a diary/memoirs or talking to the press.

We don't know if he was at the location without the surveillance video footage (15 minutes of footage Before the first shot was fired ) This footage Must be released - It is not of a sensitive nature so is there is no reason why it shouldnt be
I may be ignorant to the circumstances here but it seems very odd that the police would not have issued a statement immediately following the shooting, informing the public they were reviewing security footage of the attack.

I've always felt that Loughner was a mind control agent used to discredit the Patriot move,ment.

I feel that is reasonable to have questions and scrutinize this whole incident however I think the suppression of information on the alleged shooter is a normal and understandable part of the legal process. So many cases have been won or lost in the court of public opinion before the trial ever begins (I could cite numerous examples) and I firmly believe the prosecution is just following all the rules in order to present an air tight case. Unlike CSI, Perry Mason. Law and Order and other fictionalized TV shows, forensics and law can be quite dull and non-glamorous
Sure it makes for compelling conspiracy discussion and I often question "the official story" on many topics but in this case it could either be another Oswald (then I'd be skeptical) or another Timothy McVeigh. There is purportedly clear surveillance video that shows Loughner commiting the crime and unless it is suppressed (like the Pentagon footage) I tend to believe that is compelling evidence.
Regarding the nature of injuries of Congresswoman Giffords there have been numerous credible visitors to see her who can attest to the severity of her injuries. (OK serious opinion aside now)
Besides, Obama healed her:
Did Obama's visit heal Gabrielle Giffords?
UNINTENTIONALLY HILARIOUS WAPO OP ED
Thus, if Obama, a man with a strong personality and a deep faith, touched the spirit of Rep. Giffords with his prayer that does not make him into a saint. [I could just as easily have posed this question about daily communicant Nancy Pelosi, the Catholic Kirsten Gillibrand and the Jewish Debbie Wasserman Shultz who were actually in the room when Gabby opened her eyes. Moreover, her husband has also been present in the hospital room. Still, the point is the same, no matter the person present.]
