I do apologise for my bad language which I normally try, with varying degrees of success, to avoid but I just went downstairs to make a cup of tea and I saw Sky News reporting that the Norwegian judges have given that murdering swine, Breivik - 21 years in prison with a minimum sentence of just 10 years. This is a man who deliberately set off a bomb to distract the police which killed and maimed several people and who then went on a literal man and woman hunt to shoot down in cold blood 69 more people most of them teen-agers. And for that he gets 21 years max and possibly 10 minimum?
This particular post is going to dribble away into nothingness because I simply do not have the words. The Norwegian judges are a bunch of contemptible cowards and fools not fit to sit in judgment on a motoring offence. Were I a parent of one of those youngsters shot in cold blood I would be setting off now with my rifle to see if I could even the score by taking out some of those judges. Norway is a lunatic asylum and the loonies have taken it over.
ADDITIONAL: Quite properly I have been taken to task by my e-pals, 'Webbers' and 'W', who chastise me for my harsh and inaccurate words with regard to the Norwegian judges who were simply following the letter of their ludicrous and insulting law - insulting, that is, to the dead and the bereaved and the maimed. To clarify matters, which my ill-tempered rant did not, here are the details from Wiki:
- The indeterminate penalty, called "containment" (Norwegian: forvaring), is set at 21 years imprisonment, and the prisoner is required to serve at least 10 years before becoming eligible for parole. If the prisoner is still considered dangerous after serving the original sentence, the prisoner can receive up to five years additional containment. If the additional time is served, and the offender is still considered dangerous, a prisoner can continue to receive up to five years additional containment, and this, in theory, could result in actual life imprisonment. "Containment" is used when the prisoner is deemed a danger to society and there is a great chance of committing violent crimes in the future. However, the offender can be paroled or released at any time if it is determined that the offender is no longer a danger to society.
By any standard of civilised justice Breivik should never see the light of day except through prison bars.
