This slaughter may... finally... cause Norway to fundamentally review and change their society to one that actually bears some resemblance to reality.
When you think about it, the loss of 92 people out of 4.9 million, for purposes of comparison, would have roughly the statistical impact of the loss of roughly 63 times that many here in the US, based on our population sizes... Norway with 4.9 million, the US with 307 million or so... or 5800 killed... almost twice that of our 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The idea that this guy could ever see the light of day again is incomprehensible... like many of the policies of the "living-in-a-cocoon" euro-governments where reality is an abstract construct and you get the economic strength of socialist countries like Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Span and Italy... ongoing, slow-motion train wrecks.
Norway has the lowest incarceration rate in Europe, roughly a 8% or so of that in our country.
Laws like this, obviously, are why.
Why Norway's worst mass killer will be given a jail sentence of only 21 years... and could be on weekend parole in seven

Norway's mass killer faces a maximum jail term of just 21 years. Astonishingly, that is the longest sentence available to judges in Norway's benevolent justice system.
In England and Wales, repeat killers can be told they will die behind bars with a 'whole life' tariff, and killers who use a knife or gun face minimum terms of 25 and 30 years.
But in Norway, few killers serve more than 14 years.
Even those given the maximum term can be released after two-thirds of their sentence, and many are given unsupervised weekend parole after just one third.
Only in exceptional cases, if officials consider a prisoner is still highly dangerous, will sentences be extended for additional five-year blocks.
Norway’s incarceration rates – the number of people jailed per head of population – are among the lowest in Europe. Some 66 are behind bars for every 100,000 citizens, less than half the figure for the UK.
The age of criminal responsibility is 15, compared with ten in England and Wales.
Lack of jail spaces means some offenders can wait weeks or even months before being locked up.
Many spend this time at home, often in the heart of the communities where they committed their crimes.In one notorious case, two boys who killed a five-year-old girl were back at school within two weeks.So... how's that working out for them?
