    Norway's 21-Year Maximum Penalty Sparks Outcry After Terror Attacks That Killed 76

    This is what happens in a tolerant, Socialist/Liberal Country that has run amuck and become wimps.

    No crime screams slow painful death like terrorism such as this.

    I say hang the bastard in a town square and let his toes just touch the ground.

    Is that being vengeful? You damn bet it is. I hate the Islamic Cults but you have to admit that painful punishment keeps crime down.

    In California we have a meaningless death penalty that when it is used is painless. I have been under general anesthesia more times than I can count and I assure you there is no pain other than a little pin prick.

    The world is sometimes too nice all around.

    As a Christian I should not feel as I do about this because I'm have a pretty good idea that this fanatic maniac will never be forgiven for this much sin.





    Norway's 21-Year Maximum Penalty Sparks Outcry After Terror Attacks That Killed 76 - FoxNews.com
    Friday's twin attacks in Norway that killed 76 people have sparked growing outcry at the country's penal code, under which even the man now accused in the mass killings would face a maximum penalty of only 21 years in prison if convicted.

    If found guilty in the massacre and given that maximum sentence, Anders Behrin Breivik, 32, would serve roughly 100 days in prison per killing.

    Part of the reason most developed nations have a lower homicide rate than we do is because they don't execute people. Their governments don't relish in killing, therefore their people don't practice it as frequently. Sorry if that offends your bloodlust.

    That said, I've always thought the 21-year max sentence was insane. There are some criminals that can never be made safe for society. And they should never be released. Releasing sociopaths, mass-murderers, joy killers, child molesters, and rapists just invites them to re-offend. They can't be rehabilitated. Releasing them is insane. I hope Norway will reconsider this policy.

    In my opinion, the death penalty should serve the same purpose as life in prison: Keeping these people out of society forever. I would give them a choice which one they want. Vengeance doesn't enter into it. Also, the most humane execution is just the firing squad. It's simple, it's quick, it's hard to screw up, and it doesn't cost millions.

    I am sorry but that makes no sense what ever.

    I don't have a blood lust I have a strong desire to make sure the guilty get what they have earned

    Gee, it's good to hear from Beck again.

    SHERMAN OAKS, Calif., July 26 (UPI) -- Conservative U.S. broadcaster Glenn Beck said the teenagers massacred at a Norwegian Labor Party youth camp reminded him of the infamous Hitler Youth.

    "There was a shooting at a political camp, which sounds a little like, you know, the Hitler Youth," Beck said in the first minute of his syndicated radio broadcast Monday. "I mean, who does a camp for kids that's all about politics? Disturbing."

    Response from Norwegian representative:

    http://www.smh.com.au/world/glenn-be...ml?from=smh_sb

    "Young political activists have gathered at Utoya for over 60 years to learn about and be part of democracy, the very opposite of what the Hitler Youth was about," Torbjorn Eriksen told London's Daily Telegraph.
    "Glenn Beck's comments are ignorant, incorrect and extremely hurtful."
    Another Labour member and political scientist, Frank Aarebrot, told Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet it was "just frightening that there are people who are doing such terrible ... stories like this".
    The worst thing is that some would see Beck's comments as objective reporting, he said, labelling Beck a "vulgar propagandist".
    Tea Party supporters in the United States have hosted their own political youth camps, the Telegraph reported.

    If he is found likely to reoffend he can and would be held is prison far longer. Canada has a similar law on the books

    If only there was a dealth penalty in places like Texas these kinda things wouldn't happen. Or maybe you've just completly over simplified an extremely complex issue.

    My point is that you are wrong that such punishments keep crime down. The states that have a death penalty actually have, on average, the highest rates of violent crime and homocide.

    They have a governmental culture of killing. Therefore, the people also have a culture of killing. Your blind vengence is part of the reason for that.

    Some of the more extreme criminals do in fact want to be killed. And when you add up the average cost of appeals, the execution itself, etc, it's far more expensive that sticking them in jail forever.

    There is simply no advantage to it. And it's the mark of an uncivilized and erroneous sense of justice.

    For the love of god....the miss information is ripe over on the other side of the pond.

    Maximum sentence is 21 years yes.

    However there is Forvaring. This is a statute that states, if the criminal is a threat to society after his sentence then he/she can be put in "forvaring" (jail type scenario) form 10 to 21 years and then after that it can be extended every 5 years. This means he can be held for life.
