Psychiatrists: Norway shooting suspect legally insane. Anders Behring Breivik, the man charged in a bombing and shooting rampage that left dozens of people dead earlier this summer, was determined to be insane by Norwegian police, who determined he was psychotic during both the shooting and 13 later interviews. Breivik has not learned of the decision, which likely means two things: First, he probably won’t get jail time, due to Norwegian law. Second, he could be put in a mental hospital for the rest of his life, based on what a court decides. The report contradicts a court decision on the matter earlier this month. (Check our Tumbl-Zine for more background on this story.)

Judge: Norway mass-shooting suspect not insane, fit for trial
Anders Behring Breivik wasn’t allowed to speak at a hearing Monday, the first public hearing since the July bombing and mass shooting that killed 77 people. The hearing drew more than 500 people. The judge, Torkjel Nesheim, was quick to decide on his sanity (and also noted that he most assuredly acted alone), but would not let him recite a prepared statement for the hearing. ”This was not the main trial where he gets to explain himself,” the judge said. “I did not want to give him the opportunity to use this hearing as a platform for him to express his views.” (Check our Tumbl-Zine for more background on this story.) source

hman:

Back when the mass murder happened in Norway earlier this summer, the only thing I could find to say was how Lacoste was probably freaking out because the guy was wearing a Lacoste sweater in every picture that came out.
It turns out I was onto something:

“French clothing firm Lacoste contacted Norwegian police to request that confessed killer Anders Behring Breivik stop wearing its products, the Dagbladet newspaper reported.”

Hah!

Because, clearly, the first thing that should be on the mind of a mass-shooter is upholding the reputation of a clothing company. This ain’t no Jersey Shore.

Mr. Breivik managed to commit two terrorist attacks in a single afternoon. But the hatred and contempt from which he drew his deranged determination were shared with many others throughout the international right-wing blogosphere.
Joshua Gaarder, author of “Sophie’s World,” and Thomas Hyland Erickson, professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo • In a New York Times opinion piece emphasizing the right-wing blogosphere’s influential nature — especially in terms of the Norway terror attacks, perpetrated by a man with ties to the right-wing in Norway. Plenty of people on the Internet are bigots in an extreme sense, extreme enough to encourage behavior like Breivik’s. It’s a sad and scary truth, but it’s one that needs to be taken seriously — no man works alone. He may have been a lone wolf in his actions, but he certainly wasn’t alone in his thinking. source (viafollow)

Update to last post: Unstable man still out there, but has nothing to do with shooting/bombing suspect Anders Behring Breivik. Norwegian police screwed that one up. Please disregard previous post.

So yeah, holy crap. Anders Behring Breivik may not have acted alone. We’ll keep an eye on this as it develops. Please disregard this tweet, Norwegian police offered up inaccurate info.
