This picture breaks my heart every time I see it.
Anders Behring Breivik confessed shortly after quietly being apprehended by police on Utoya Island. In various statements he considers his heinous acts "cruel but necessary," along with imagining himself as an anti-Islamic "crusader."
From Yahoo News:
From the Seattle Times:
From FOX News:
No Mr. Breivik, you are not a crusader. You are a POS (Piece Of "Crap") mass murderer. Crusaders are warriors, willing to confront armed enemies in battle--not methodically slaughter unarmed teenagers. If you wanted to be a crusader, why didn't you join the Norwegian military, volunteer to deploy to Afghanistan and fight the jihadis along side American troops? (I won't delve into NATO's deployment policy here). Or become a politician and advocate changing your country's immigration laws?
From what I've seen on the FOX News programs, the maximum sentence Breivik will get will be 21 years.
That's less than 4.5 years for every person he's killed.
Quite an indictment against progressive law, if you ask me.
