    Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik is insane and should not be punished, an official report has recommended.


    The 243-page psychiatric report says the 32-year-old was mentally ill and therefore not responsible for his actions when he killed a total of 77 people.
    It says he has developed paranoid schizophrenia and should be detained indefinitely at a psychiatric hospital.
    Public prosecutor Svein Holden told a packed press conference that experts had "described a person who lives in his own delusional universe".

    He said the report concluded: "He believes he is chosen to determine who is to live and who is to die.
    "Breivik stated that he committed these 'executions' out of love for his people. He describes himself as the most perfect knight since the Second World War."
    The report followed 13 meetings between Breivik and a team of psychiatrists.
    If the recommendations are accepted, Breivik cannot be sent to prison but will instead be confined to a secure psychiatric unit. The court will then meet every three years to decide if he is still a danger to society.

    He can be released if he is later deemed to be "cured and well".
    Had he been found sane and sent to prison, he could have received a maximum sentence of 20 years.
    Breivik has confessed to the killings, which he committed in a shooting spree at a youth retreat on Utoya island and a car bomb attack in Oslo.
    Public prosecutors can theoretically decide to ignore the conclusions of the psychiatric report, although such decisions are highly unusual.
    The full report will be presented at Breivik's next court hearing on April 16.


    Cant help but think that if he was a muslim and had a name of Muhammad Bin Hanif Bin Ghafaar or something, he would've been on the next plane to Guantanamo Bay, without a trial & tortured for treason!

    So if a Muslim terrorist could say that they were having mental issues then they'd have the same treatment? I highly doubt it

    It is obvious to me that they did this for a few reasons:
    1) Now he doesn't have a trial in the full media glare, where he can air his opinions.
    2) If he had been prosecuted under normal law, the maximum sentence in Norway is 25-30 years, which clearly would have been unacceptable.
    3) He wouldn't be safe, nor would those around him, in a normal prison.

    It is nothing to do with him getting special treatment as a white non-Muslim or anything stupid. He might even have a mental health problem for all we know...

    We'll never know because the successful ones almost all commit suicide to claim their 947 virgins or whatever in the afterlife...

    I doubt a Muslim terrorist would still be alive, they seem to have a fondness for blowing themselves up aloing with their bombs.

    Quite obviously Im on about those that fail to blow themselves up and get caught. How's a dead person meant to show up in court?

    Exactly.

    Any judicial system that lets a terrorist scot free without punishment doesnt deserve to be called a judicial system.

    He shouldn't be tried. He should be put up against a wall and shot, no trial, no questions asked.

    Full psych reports are done on these people before trial, especially if they request it. Breivik didn't claim he had mental health problems either, he wanted to stand trial to spread propaganda, so this is almost more punishment. If Breivik was over here or in America he almost certainly would have stood trial, but if you read my post above the post I made to you there are rational reasons for this decision.

    From what I have seen, Norwegian criminal systems are not based on punishment. They are based on rehabilitation.

    This, to me, seems like the best and most sensible route for Breivik. If he is so severely mentally ill that he can't be rehabilitated, he'll be kept inside somewhere for the rest of his life, and what good would it do to anyone to punish a man who is never going to be free to murder again? If he can be rehabilitated, then he can be rehabilitated, and all well and good - with his severity of crime and craziness (I read a good portion of his manifesto), I doubt he'd be able to get over it though.
