View Full Version : Norway Shooter Trial Begins...Side Note: Weird Laws In Norway?

I saw an article on MSNBC that the Norway shooter's trial has started. He admits to killing 77 people but plead not guilty, apparently to get some air time to spread his message.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of all of this was this...

However, the court will have to decide whether Breivik is sane. If sane, he faces up to 21 years in prison; if deemed criminally insane, he would be committed to psychiatric care.

So he bombed a government building and killed 77 people and he faces 21 years in prison? Seriously? If convicted he will serve an average of 14 weeks in prison for every person that he killed. What a joke.

It appears from reading some of the comments that the 21 years is required before his sentence can come up for review. At which time they can simply refuse to let him out and continue to do so at each review until he dies.

This guy is a complete and utter waste of a human life and needs to be executed.
