    Awful, just awful. How another human being could do that to others is just mind-boggling. Most European countries don't have the death penalty if I am not mistaken? Does Norway? This guy has no right to go on living.

    If they're in the European Union and I believe they are, there's no death penalty.

    Belarus and Latvia are the last two European countries clinging to the death penalty, the latter only for wartime offenses.

    There isn't much of an appetite for the death penalty in Europe (I am personally against it myself), but I wonder if this is so shocking they would attempt to get around it and charge him with crimes against humanity?

    I know that sounds over-the-top, and maybe that would put him at risk of not being convicted at all, but capping 80 campers for what appears to be a political purpose is heavy-duty evil.

    That would mean trying him in The Hague, which means they'll die of old age first ... like Dick Cheney.

    AP has some chilling pictures of dead lying off the shore of the camp. I won't post the one I found.

    I vote for the guards to let a few inmates into his cell and then looking the other way.

    What a horrible thing for the people of Norway.

    The massacre in Norway was the work of a man with extreme right wing views who hated Muslims, police said this morning.

    Officers found a series of raving internet posts by 32-year-old Anders Behring Breivik, who was arrested for gunning down children on the island of Utoya yesterday.

    Nothing classier than using the deaths of 80 people, many of them children, to get in a Cheney crack.

    I can't imagine the horror the parents of those kids at the camp must have felt when they heard about this. Worst nightmare coming true. Thoughts and prayers with them all.

    Were these Muslims he killed?

    Nice to compare him to Dick Cheney.

    Who gets more sympathy, a Muslim suicide bomber or this guy? Or are they both refuse?
