One beautiful summer day of August 2012 is supposed to be the Judgement Day for Anders Breivik, the Killer of Oslo. More truly and accurately, it will be the Judgement Day for Norway itself, thanks to the bogy twist the state prosecutors Svein Holden and Inga Enghhad been trying to give the case by introducing a spooky “third factor”.
The facts are simple.
Breivik executed 77 people in a “military operation”, took full responsibility of his act, and said in his closing statement that at times it is necessary to do a little evil to prevent a greater evil in the future.
With these facts, every sane man on earth will agree that a sentence of life imprisonment should be just a technicality (The death-penalty is forbidden in Norway).
Unfortunately, not the state prosecutors Holden and Engh!
The state prosecutors have spent most of their energy trying to convince the judge that Breivik should not be jailed because he is “mad”. And the state which they represent has already started constructing a 20 million worth sanatorium in idyllic surroundings where Breivik can spend the rest of his life committing his ideas to pen and paper.
This is not an insult to the 77 victims and their relatives but to Mankind itself and me in particular. I do not know of a single incident in history where a mass-murderer has been spared a jail-sentence. I also do not know of a single incident where the accused is saying that he is sane, but the prosecutors are saying that he is not.
Actually I know very well the reasons for this Alice in Wonderland style Inversion of Reality where the accused and the prosecutors have exchanged places by saying what the other should say.
As usual Norway is trying to prove to the world that it is the most just, impartial and caring country on earth. Shortly I will show Norway a better way to do this, but first I have an appeal.
My public appeal to JudgeWencheArntzen...
Your honour, before you let a mass-murderer off the hook, please ask one question to yourself:
How many times in life have you yourself declared you own son mad, but then how many times did you allow him to skip homework or school just because a lawyer (you) had officially declared him “mad”?
Your honour, please listen to your inner voice rather than a whining state prosecutor begging you to present Brevik a 20 million worth mansion where he can get inspired enough to write another Mein Kampf. Breivik’s right place is in jail, not a villa.
The moral of my appeal: “Mad” is a very vague term, and mass-murders should not get off the hook on the basis of such vague words.
Now back to Norway being the most caring country on earth.
Many times I have criticized the Norwegian health-caring system. I even said that dozens of people have died because of wrong treatment. All this time I was keeping my fingers crossed that I was not exaggerating the numbers because I want to be a responsible and truthful columnist of the great GFP.
Recently the state was forced to release numbers, and here they are.
For the past ten years, every year 4,500 people die in Norwegian hospitals in mysterious circumstances because of the wrong treatment they receive. This adds up to a total of 45,000 till now. But as I said before, no health minister has ever been questioned about it, no health official has ever been dismissed or even reprimanded, and I have never seen the media supporting a few courageous relatives of the victims who may be fighting lone battles for justice.
Now even a 3 month old baby can see where Norway should begin if it really cares for its citizens. Creating a tamasha (circus) of phoney justice , impartiality and care around a mass-murderer is not the right way or the right place.
Finally I end with my usual “predictions”.
I “predict” that either Breivik WOULD go straight to jail on Judgement Day, or four people SHOULD go together to the 20 million worth sanatorium the state is building – Breivik, the two prosecutors and the presiding judge. There they can discuss and determine to their heart’s content as to who is mad and who is not.
So dear readers, watch out for the coming Judgement Day.

His defense is expected to call for his acquittal. Even though there is no chance Breivik will be set free, his lawyers must formally make the request since their client has pleaded not guilty, despite having confessed to carrying out the murderous twin attacks on July 22, 2011, when he first bombed a government building in Oslo, killing eight people, before going on a shooting rampage on Utoeya island, northwest of the capital, where the ruling Labor Party's youth wing was hosting a summer camp. Sixty-nine people died on the island, most of them teens. Breivik, 33, has confessed to the twin attacks but has refused to plead guilty, insisting they were 'cruel but necessary' to stop the Labor Party's 'multicultural experiment' and the 'Muslim invasion' of Norway and Europe. - Getty Images
