In case you’ve missed it, he is the Norwegian who describes himself as a hero for killing 77 innocent people.
Naturally, before he could be tried for those crimes, the Norwegian legal system had to be seen to certify that he is not in fact mad, but a rational human being who knew what he was doing. So they turned a whole bunch of trick cyclist on him, and the consensus was that, legally, he is sane.
That’s debatable in my view: there’s nothing sane about killing any innocent people, let alone 77, so should they ask me, which is unlikely, I’d sum up all my reserves of tact and diplomacy and tell them the guy is stark raving bonkers!
We have to stop describing people like him as terrorists, and simply call him what he is: a criminal. What he did is not as he claims [wrongly] a political act. He may well be anti-Islamic, but first and foremost he is a common, garden cold-blooded murderer and should be locked up forever, with no contact with the outside world other than being forced to watch endless re-runs of "Dancing on" compered by Brucie.
