Murder 77 People

…and get 21 years

Oslo, Norway (CNN) — Anders Behring Breivik, the man who killed 77 people in a bomb attack and gun rampage just over a year ago, was judged to be sane Friday by a Norwegian court, as he was sentenced to 21 years in prison.

Breivik was charged with voluntary homicide and committing acts of terror over the attacks in Oslo and Utoya Island on July 22, 2011.

Now it must be noted that was the maximum and that at the end of the time they can keep extending it if he’s still judged to be a menace to society, but really, the fact that this is the maximum is ridiculous.

    Typical lefties — punt the problem to the next generation.

    More appropriate would have been 21 years and at the end, they shoot him.

    Syd B., shoot him first, then he can serve the rest of the sentence. That should save a bit of change.

    Do an intartoobs video search for “norweigian prison system” and gander the cushiness of that crap. I just watched a “Young Turdks” episode on YouTube that posits that the Norway model is superior to our own. I’m leaning towards agreeing with that conclusion, because the US imprisons more people (in percentage and absolute numbers) than any other country on earth. Plus, we are perilously close to a police state now, with every citizen a criminal, every day. If you haven’t been arrested, you’re probably just lucky that you haven’t yet attracted the attention of the bullies in LE, rather than being a good citizen.

    Well, ya gotta give everyone a second chance…don’t you?

    Nah – JK – and I really do NOT understand that mentality. I’m with aelfheld (as I often am).

    Oh – and @skh.pcola – sure – give the criminal types another reason to do their thing. Here, the best we do is “3 squares a day” – and that seems to be enough incentive already…
