Norwegian Justice… and oxymoron

Thirteen months ago Anders Breivik slaughtered seventy-seven people.

Today he was sentenced to 10-21 years in prison, the maximum allowable under Norwegian law.

In his final statement, Breivik stated the following:

Since I don’t recognize the authority of the court I cannot legitimize the Oslo district court by accepting the verdict," Breivik said. "At the same time I cannot appeal the verdict, because by appealing it I would legitimize the court.

If this animal is unwilling to recognize the legitimacy of the court, maybe the court should work harder to find a way to put him away forever or even put him to death.

Breivik claimed he wanted to issue an apology, and was allowed.  The animal said:

I wish to apologize to all militant nationalists that I wasn’t able to execute more.

This is not a man who should be allowed to ever again walk free.  He will serve a maximum of 3.3 months behind bars for each life that he took (wounded or otherwise affected are not included in this statistic).

I am sorry, but today’s verdict is an insult to every honest person on earth.  I don’t know what the answer is, but there has to be a more suitable punishment.

This is a lousy way to end the week.
