He should have been put to death. And I hope his parole hearings keep getting turned down for the rest of his sick life!
Better yet I hope he offs himself or someone does it for him.

That's a typical western European sentence. I guess their violent crime rate is so low they don't realize what kind of demon they're dealing with.

He won't be released, but the parole board intends to gift him a brand new PS5 so he doesn't feel his time was wasted.

I believe 21 years is the maximum prison sentence in Norway. They have a much more enlightened approach to incarceration than America does.

R7 is trying to stir up anger with his "enlightened" comment.
Any justice system needs an extreme punishment option for the rare cases of extreme cases like this.
Breivik is only 42 and has only 11 years left on his sentence, and shows absolutely no remorse for his politically motivated terrorist massacre. He'll be 53 when he gets out and he'll do it again.

The cops couldn't even send a helicopter or boat to save those kids because they were all on summer vacation and there was no coverage plan.
And the leader of youth labor jumped on the first boat that showed up to get off the island, leaving his friends to die.
Now they're going to let this animal out? Some kind of enlightenment, Norway.

They aren't enlightened, they're naive and dumb. He killed 70 people and is probably living a fairly nice life behind bars due to their "enlightenment". If he has not expressed any remorse he needs to stay in until he's dead but he sounds like a stone cold psychopath.

ABOLISH PRISONS AND DEFUND THE POLICE! Carceral feminism is the enemy of progress.
We need to increase funding for mental health services to men like Breivik are supported and nurtured and have someone to talk to and get therapy when they want to go and mass murder people.

Explain how he won't be released when his 21-year sentence ends, r29. Seriously, explain it to me, I'd like to know.

He has been imprisoned with a clause that he can be held indefinitely if he is still considered dangerous and there is no chance that he will be let out on parole. As he shows no remorse he will likely never be free again. This type of clause exists for these types of cases.

[quote]In 2012 Breivik was handed the maximum 21-year sentence with a clause — rarely used in the Norwegian justice system — that he can be held indefinitely if he is still considered a danger to society. It is this clause that means he can demand a parole hearing after 10 years. And while this likely means a lifelong sentence, it also opens the possibility that Breivik can demand annual parole hearings where he can broadcast his views, says Johnsen.
I don't know if anyone else saw this, I had to click "read more" on OP's article before I saw it, but r31's comment alerted me to this clause so I went looking.
That's actually good news and I'm glad to hear about this clause.

Thank you, r31. I was wondering how extraordinary cases were treated. I now wonder if people like him are eventually released, if there's a type of monitoring program, or registry, that would permanently keep tabs on them.

R7, R18 First, recidivism is commonly measured by a return to prison for the same crime, violation of parole (technical or new charge) within 3 years of release. Researchers with a particular end goal like to skew the time from release. That drops the rate to about 50% returning to prison. In my state it’s about 60%-66%. This does not count misdemeanor offenses or spending time in a jail. Second, our Norwegian mass murderer has a serious problem in that he wants to murder folks based on serious neo-nazi sympathies. He should have been given life without parole and some intense psychotherapy. Third, no amount of job training, education or dialectical behavior training will change his desire to murder people. And lastly incarceration has another purpose, to fulfill satisfaction for a crime. Satisfaction being the sentence imposed by the state on behalf of a victims and relatives. 21 years is less than 1 year per murdered person. Norway kind of said, “each murdered persons life is worth around .27 years, but it’s sentences being served consecutively.” That they can hold him indefinitely is dangerous, it leaves it to the prison system to determine what is best for society, which is not what prison systems are for, that is for the courts.

I looked it up and it turns out R44 is correct, I was wrong. He has a computer but no Internet access. He appealed his sentence to the European Court of Human Rights saying that being deprived of Internet access (among other things) was inhumane treatment, and I was thinking he won that case, but he lost.
