Norwegians angry terror suspect deemed insane, want him to face prison time

A panel of psychiatrists this week found Norwegian Anders Breivik, the man accused of killing 77 people in a terrorist rampage, to be insane and suffering from “paranoid schizophrenia.”

Breivik took months to plan the July attacks in Oslo and at a youth camp on nearby Utoya Island. He orchestrated complicated financial transactions to obtain chemicals used to make bombs detonated at Oslo governmental buildings. He went through great lengths to ensure family, friends, police and even his landlord did not discover his plot.

We empathize with the Norwegians for being angry at a person who meticulously planned to take innocent live.  How can he be crazy?  If so then how come Osama bin Laden is not?

Unfortunately, if Breivik  was of Arab or Pakistani background, the media would have label him a “Muslim” terrorist and no psychiatric analysis would have been done to find out his mental stability.  Shouldn’t we have done the same thing for Osama bin Laden?  How do we know that he was not suffering from paranoid schizophrenia as well and needed medical treatment rather than a cold blooded assassination?

It’s the duality in our view and action that deprive us of peace.  True peace is a product of truth and unity!

  1. Quoting from BBC:

    Psychiatrists assessing self-confessed Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik have concluded that he is suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.

    They believe he was in a psychotic state both during and after the twin attacks on 22 July that led to the deaths of 77 people and injured 151.

    Their report must still be reviewed by a panel of forensic psychiatrists.

    Breivik will still be tried in April but it seems likely he will be placed in psychiatric care rather than prison.

    Breivik admits carrying out the attacks but has pleaded not guilty to charges, arguing that that the attacks were atrocious but necessary for his campaign to defend Europe against a Muslim invasion.

    The two psychiatrists who interviewed him on 13 occasions concluded that he lived in his “own delusional universe where all his thoughts and acts are guided by his delusions”, prosecutors told reporters.
