Norway's One Man Wrecking Crew

Postby RedHopeful » Sat Jul 23, 2011 12:46 pm

By time he was arrested Friday evening, Breivik is believed to have killed 84 people on the island of Utoeya and at least seven in the Oslo bombing. On Saturday, police were still combing the woods and searching the lake for bodies. A van containing undetonated explosives was found near the lake. As Norwegians seek to understand what happened, a few details about Breivik are emerging that suggest he sought to make his rampage more similar to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing by Timothy McVeigh, in which 168 people were killed, than the Al Qaeda attacks on September 11, 2001.

It's sick that people think their generation's politics are so important that it's worth killing people over.

Max sentence in Norway is 21 years in prison? That's a joke.

Seems to work pretty well for them though. Their homicide rate is ranked 179th out of 190 while the US is ranked 91st.

Do you really think that you have the right cause and effect for that statistic? I find it hard to believe that lighter sentencing decreases crime rates.

Well obviously not, but Norway's prison system is geared much more towards rehabilitation while the U.S. is geared more towards punishment. An international recidivism survey with standardized parameters would be nice to cite but there hasn't been a reliable one done to my knowledge.

Edit: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2011/0 ... y-is-safe/

Sure the site is biased but the sources and statistics aren't.
