On 22 July 2011, Anders Behring Breivik became one of the world’s most hated man when he staged twin attacks in Norway that killed 77 people and injured 151. Since Norway doesn’t have the death penalty, Breivik was expected to serve a lengthy jail term.

Now he may not even receive that. Psychiatrists have concluded that Breivik that he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia and was in a psychotic state during the attacks. According to Norwegian law experts, this means Breivik will almost certainly be detained into psychiatric care rather than receiving a lengthy jail term.

This also mean there is a good chance of him getting out if and when psychiatrists pronounce him cured. I say…So what if Breivik is insane?

This man killed 77 people and there is a chance he could walk? I thought the Norwegians were crazy not to execute him but even the chance that he might actually be freed one day is ludicrous.

So what if the man is insane? That doesn’t change the fact 77 people are dead because of him! Seriously, men like him are why we need the death penalty. If the Norwegians execute/kill/murder (whatever you want to call it) him, the family and friends of the victims have a chance of closure but now? They are faced with a chance that Breivik might one day be freed.

Now that is insane!
