    The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.- thomas jefferson.
    This is not a history lesson, and if this guy was any other person he would have been dead!!
    No court hearing for the whole world to see, that big platform
    His human rights would be out of the window.
    So please save that talk

    i think you're going off on a tangent now. I still stand by being in favour of him attending his mothers funeral.

    yes, because showing sadness and grief is normal behavior. The idea is that when he dies in prison he will be less of a psycho;prison is meant to reform along with punish people.

    He didn't grieve or show any regret for the 77 dead, would he really grieve for his mother?

    You're the one going off topic, I'm just stating the facts.

    If his mother was on her last legs and desperately wanted to see him, then I might allow it (if I were on the prison board). For his mother's sake, not his own.

    Now his mother is dead and can't possibly care, I don't see why he should be allowed to go to the funeral. That would be entirely for his own sake/pleasure (?) and frankly, I see no reason to give him anything he wants.

    Do you firmly believe that?

    I thought I had a fair amount of faith in the system - but not that much. Breivik will never be 'normal', or anywhere near.

    Similar severity? Define it.

    Oh and in your post you said "Serious violent crime" .. that could mean stabbing someone.
    Mass murder, systemic rape or child abuse, repeated violence of an extreme nature or single episodes of these cases which were particularly awful. His crime would have to be adjudged to be in the worst bracket of crimes and his sentence reflects that, but to start drawing arbitrary lines about which prisoners can or can't go to funerals or do other things outside of a courtroom in this way is not a good way to run a justice system.

    How many funerals have we caused in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the countless wars humanity has taken part in? Should we not let tony Blair attend a relatives funeral? Oh wait, he's not even in prison. Classical case of letting your emotions eclipse the argument
    Er, if I'm not mistaken I have caused zero funerals.

    He got to say goodbye. His victims never did. His mother won't know one way or another whether he attends or not.

    I actually think you're a really sick person mentally of course, or you're actually a fan of this monster.

    And in my opinion, the discretion of the prison board is a more fair, humane method.
