Police: Alleged Norwegian mass murderer faces just 21 years in prison
Oslo police chief of staff Roger Andresen told the San Francisco Chronicle that the maximum prison term suspected killer Anders Behring Breivik could face is 21 years under Norwegian law.
Two law professors at the University of Oslo confirmed Andresen’s assessment.
“21 years in prison is the maximum,” Professor Per Ole Johansen told The Daily Caller.
“The max punishment may — theoretically — be increased, but not for crimes which are already committed,” he said, when asked whether it was possible for the punishment to be increased considering the scale of this specific mass crime.
“[I]f the prisoner behaves, he or she will probably be released several years earlier,” Professor Nils Christie told TheDC while also confirming that 21 years is the maximum penalty in Norway.
As Jim Treacher says, “So that’s about 82 days in prison per murder victim.”
Anders Behring Breivik is 32. He’ll be out before he’s in his mid-fifties.
Knights Templar: In Mexico, like Norway, criminals look to past for legitimacy
The attacker in Norway and a Mexican drug ring both invoke the ancient Knights Templar to describe themselves. Why do violent ideologues and criminals search the past for inspiration?
