But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    As tempting as it might be to criticize their prisons, I think I am going to hold off on doing so until we are able to get our own crime rate as low as theirs.

    Right, but I bet they don't criminalize everything under the sun, either.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I saw an episode of Lockup and it was about some country in eastern Europe... some former soviet country. It is the place to go. They are really really lax. But their recidivism is ridiculously low too. It was bizarre. Turkey, believe it or not is also rather lenient. Unless you break the rules in prison. Then they have severe prison. They have juvy detention that lets you go out in town as long as you come back and meet curfew... if you don't or you do bad in town while in juvy... you go to Turkish adult prison.

    At some point, we'll figure out that punishing the everloving **** out of someone isn't the way to prevent subsequent offenses.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    ..... This... this is not how the Norwegian system works. When the 21 years are up, he's going under a kind of parole board that assesses whether he should be released or not. Chances are that after killing 60+ kids, he's not going to be freed. Kind of like the Manson family. 1-2 of them go up for parole every few years. None have yet to be released regardless of how much they claim to have changed.

    You could make the same argument for him. Maybe the progressives went too far over the "liberty line" and his actions were a direct result of their actions?

    I don't agree with his actions but I understand his actions. He wanted to be a martyr and to some extent he is.

    And what actions would those have been? What policies enacted in Norway would justify murder of any kind, let alone what actually took place?

    He murdered dozens of children in order to somehow encourage the purging of all muslims from Norway. You understand that?

    Nope, a martyr would be one who actually underwent persecution or violent opposition. In this case, Brevik simply went about slaughtering innocent youth because the adults wouldn't capitulate to his notions of a pure society. He is in no way, shape, or form, a martyr.

    A martyr (Greek: μάρτυς, mártys, "witness"; stem μάρτυρ-, mártyr-) is somebody who suffers persecution and death for refusing to renounce, or accept, a belief or cause, usually religious.
