  • In 2011 Anders Breivik murdered 77 people, many of them young people attending a summer camp, and was sentenced to 21 years in prison - but has now appeared in court appealing for early release.

    Note 21 years is a bit misleading. He can be held indefinitely, under a part of Norwegian law called Containment, which means they just have to prove every 5 years that he remains a danger to society. The 21 years is the maximum penalty for his crime, but he can still be held beyond that.

      Let's hope they never release this man. Unpredictable and highly dangerous. Killing 77 teenagers and getting released would be one of the most outrageous things to ever happen in my lifetime

    Norwegian here.
    The law says the maximum sentence is 21 years. However, that is indefinitely extendable if the person is not deemed safe to release back into the public.
    I guess the best english word for it is "preventative detention" (forvaring). He will never get out.

      , from 2011 to 2016 he has sent and received a total of around 3000 letters, among these letters, he has sent a mass-copied letter to relatives and survivors.
      It is a repetition of the message from his manifesto that he wrote before he committed the killings

      Norway does not need these types on the Street to ruin the stability it has
      That other countries does not have peace like Norway (personal experience)
      We can't watch 247 this anders guy
      People who take life after life after life 30 40 50 times ⏲
      Come on .......
      I pray he is never released
      This system 1 mistake go back inside
      It's okay for normal crime
      But I think this 1 case is special
      Very special ....not a everyday case
      I think it will test the justice system.
      Hope he does come free and say I want to leave Norway and come to where I am

    If the Norwegians give him parole, it just means they don't care if another 77 people are killed (69 of them teenagers at summer camp) during another attack. I'm all for rehab and The Norwegians are quite good at it from I've read, but when your killing/shooting spree leaves 77 dead, you really don't need to breath free air again.

      In other comments, a few people explain that the maximum a person can get in prison is 21 years in Norway. After that time has elapsed, they can extend it, and keep doing this until the person's death. This hearing does not mean he'll get out.
      I agree with you--he should never be free in society again.

      @Matt Hummel The whole point of the system is to reduce risk of endangering anyone again and it has been proven to work. Treat a man like a dog and he becomes a dog, this is how the system in US work for example. You want a system where you create better neighbors not worse. You want a system where you release people who can support the economy of the country. It benefits everyone in the long run. Its the same thing with the social health system in Norway where if someone injures himself etc he gets the help he needs to get back in to the economy as fast as possible. Having as many people healthy, educated and safe is the goal.

    • Luredreier
      Luredreier 4 months ago +2

      @Matt Hummel Yet we have both lower recidivism rates *and* lower overall overall crime pr capita then most other countries out there.
      Our crime rate is lower then all but 11 countries in the world.
      There's hardly anywhere that's safer.
      I mean, sure, perhaps Iceland...
      If you don't mind living on top of a vulcanic hot spot...
      And they have pretty much the same approach anyway...
      And that's down from quite a *high* crime rate and recidivism in the eighties by the way...
      Back when we *did* have the old school justice system of countries like the US or UK...
      That said, our system isn't perfect.
      There *has* been cases of people being released from either jail or psychiatric hospital who have then commited murder.
      But at the same time, because we have our system that actually *tries* to help people the bar is also lower for seeking help, either for the person in question or for their next of kin.
      In the US for instance, if you suspect that a relative might be mentally ill, on drugs or have commited a crime and you *care* about them, then the treshold for actually reporting that to the authorities is pretty high as the consequences for the individual in question is pretty high.
      Here it's not nearly as severe to be reported to the authorities as they *genuinely* are trying to help.
      And our prison system and psychiatric hospitals are essentially extensions of our welfare system, that is *already* using many of the same techniques, except in a jail people don't have the freedom to actually comit a crime, so they might as well make use of the services made available.
      It's essentially a time out, a removal from society while people are getting ready to deal with society again.
      That said, there *are* individuals who end up sitting in jail or mental hospital for the rest of their lives...
      But by having laws that *defaults* to *never* giving up on people we avoid what we call "justismord" ("justice murder", I think it's something like "misscarriage of justice" in English).
      We have more people who actually contribute to society.
      We have more people *consenting* to getting help.
      We have more people reported in by next of kin etc.
      And we have *less* crimes overall.
      Less victims.
      And we're a better society because of it.

    • Luredreier
      Luredreier 4 months ago +1

      @Matt Hummel Possibly.
      It's true that you can't help *everyone*.
      But a society that doesn't give up on people and that *tries* to help *everyone* is still a better nation to live in.
      Even when it fails sometimes.

    It makes him happy to get to make these public appearances every once in a while. I'm fine with that though, because I know he has to live in prison every day for the rest of his futile, pathetic life. It really makes me all warm and fuzzy on the inside to think of this man's hopelessness. And for those of you saying "norweigan prisons" etc, yeah it isn't exactly an American prison, but I think his inability to leave and fulfil his goals is plenty of punishment. Imagine feeling that hopeless.

      @RM Their responses have generally been that he is not a special snowflake, and he should be treated like anyone else, no special laws just for him.
      There is a slight chance he might be released at some point in the distant future. Maybe at age 85 with a walking chair. Or perhaps at age 68 after 20 years of running an anti-radicalization charity from his prison cell, while doing daily interviews about how much he regrets his actions. On the flip side, our prisoner re-offender rate is one of the lowest in the world, and murder rate is *the* lowest in the world, beaten only by Japan, Luxembourg and Singapore. Something is working..

    If he's proven guilty than he should've been given jail for life. Killing 77 people and he can get out?! Even after 20 years it is not correct towards the victims and their families. Also, killing 77 people is terrorism and he should've been sentenced for that.

      @Gabriela: Death penalty is the prison sentence you get while waiting to be executed. I am against that. In his case, he should just have been euthanized. But that also necessitates assisted suicide, or otherwise, the most desperate could do horrible things in order to get the help they feel that they need.

    • Gabriela
      Gabriela 4 months ago

      @Jo-Erlend Schinstad if they are 100% sure he did it, maybe he confessed or they have a video tape of this crime than I think in such a situation the death penalty is deserved because people are working and paying taxes, basically the government has to pay for the food and living of such a horrible criminal.
      When people like that get away with an easy sentence, other criminals see that as encouragement, thinking "okay, I'll kill thousands and than just live the rest of my life in prison". Society has to offer a second chance but to people who really deserve it. This one will make the same thing again if he gets out. We, as society, determine ourselves how we want to be treated and when we tolerate injustice it sets a very dangerous pattern, basically giving the criminals hope to get out after mass killings or doing other disastrous things.

    It's interesting how news organisations have differing approaches to these types of events, for example from 1969 - 2000 the IRA murdered about 2000 people in Northern Ireland, yet certain media outlets such as the BBC sympathetically reported the IRA's demand for political status for IRA prisoners, and leftist politicians such as Jeremy Corbyn supported that idea. After 9/11 the BBC broadcast an episode of its "Question Time" program in which the typically left-wing panel members selected by the BBC essentially opined that the US deserved the attack and/or was fully responsible for it, and that Al Quaeda's position was a perfectly rational one. Breivik was clearly politically-motivated: his targets on the island were attending a left-wing camp; many were expected to go on to join the leftist political establishment Norway, the target of the Oslo bomb was the leftist Norwegian government; and of course Breivik blamed the leftist establishment in Norway and in Europe more generally for mass uncontrolled immigration and the elimination of indigenous Europeans in their homelands. Yet there's little consideration of these political motivations as they are at the opposite end of the scale to those of the BBC itself, and Breivik is represented only as a mentally-unstable individual, yet this was not a random killing spree, it had a political purpose, even if that purpose would not be accepted as a justification by most people, in the same way most people did not support the IRA. I can think of other examples of political violence receiving sympathetic reporting by the BBC and others, e.g. the ANC, PLO, etc. Naturally I would not support political violence of any sort yet the BBC seems somewhat equivocal when they agree with the aims if not the methods of the protagonists.

      @Cascade Actually, I'm thinking that there's 319 reason to *reform* him.
      Punishing him isn't going to bring any of the dead back to life.
      It isn't going to heal those who where wounded.
      Or remove the mental scars.
      But if we can work out *why* he did this to begin with, *how* he started thinking this way and actually can manage to reform him, healing him from his mental illness.
      Then we can perhaps prevent future victims from happening due to future terrorists.
      Also, treating him differently from anyone else would entail letting him win, by treating him just the same way as everyone else we honor our dead.
      People who where in a political party that faught for a society where everyone are treated equally.
      That said...
      If he ever *is* genuinly reformed and released, I do hope he'll get some form of restraining order so he won't get close to any of the victims...
      They've had enough nightmares about him...
      I have a friend who's still mentally scared by that day...
      And I can't deny that if he *does* get reformed it would be challenging for us...
      And it would be *easier* for us if he doesn't get reformed...
      I honestly don't know what I'm hoping for the most of those two outcomes...
      Either way he has left a scar that will take a long time to heal...

      Of course, if you don't care about rehabilitation or keeping them from commiting more crimes in the future (which means more innocent victims), and punishment is the only thing that matters, and not the would-be future victims... Then yes, Norwegian prisons are way too nice.

      @EL CID We focus more on rehabilitation, but justice is definitely a part of it. He's in prison.
      But let me flip it around a little... Are you American? Because the US is a good example of a justice system that focuses on punishment. Most inmates will still be released some day, but the majority of the people released go on to commit more crimes. More crimes means more victims. In my country, Norway, we focus on rehabilitation. They may not spend as much time in prison, and they may get treated better in prison, but once they are released... It is unlikely there will be more victims. For the majority of them, when they get released, they have been successfully rehabilitated and go on to become valuable members of society, who stays out of trouble.
      You tell me which one is best. The one with more victims, but harsher punishment? Or the one with less severe punishments, but with fewer victims, since they become rehabilitated and don't commit more crimes?

      That's what will happen - he is not being seriously considered for release and even Breivik knows this: he can try and appeal on a technicality, but it's just that - a technicality. 21 years is the maximum anyone can be sentenced to at once, but Norway does have legal provision for holding someone in life imprisonment: the law stipulates that someone who has shown himself to still be dangerous can be sentenced to further 5 years after he has served his 21 years, which can be repeated again and again until the end of his life. Having not expressed regret for his terrorist acts - let alone acknowledge them as such (in his delusional mind he sees himself as some “knight”) - Breivik definitely fits the bill.

It is clear that even when he is released from jail at the end of 21 years he will return to far right white extremist activism and still pose a threat to citizens of the world, either directly or by inspiring others to commit atrocities by following his cause. Norway should refer his case to the International Court in the Hague for crimes against humanity and he should get a life sentence there.

    I have no issues with this idiot appearing in court if that's what the law dictates there but I do really question whether we any of us should really be rewarding him with publicity by filming his appearances. Certainly mention that he's appearing in court and the result of his hearing when it's all over but this almost seems like it's a reward to him.
