Today a court in Norway found Anders Behring Breivik sane, and guilty of the Olso bombing and the shootings on the island of Utøya on July 22, 2011. The 5 judge panel sentenced him to 21 years in a high security prison, isolated from the general prison population and with a minimum of 10 years, the maximum under Norwegian law.
He will now be held under containment where he can challenge the sentence every 5 years following the initial 21. The court had allowed the graphic cataloguing of the horrific injuries and their terrifying last minutes as a reminder of his actions when this time comes.
On July 22 last year a car bomb exploded in Central Oslo, shortly after, Breivik, dressed as a police officer landed on the small island of Utøya where he gunned down a youth camp for the Norwegian Labour party. Eight people died in the bombing and 69 – 34 of them aged between 14 and 17 – were killed on the island. And today justice has been served, delivering the verdict one of the judges remarked “many people share Breivik’s conspiracy theory, including the Eurabia theory. The court finds that very few people, however, share Breivik’s idea that the alleged “Islamization” should be fought with terror.
