I thought they (the attackers) were exchanging messages but realizing he was alone, I think the scream was actually a battle cry.Utoeya Island massacre survivor Ingvild Leren Stensrud • Describing what she saw and heard, the day Anders Behring Breivik attacked Oslo and Utoeya, while testifying in the Norwegian killer’s trial. Stenstrud survived the attack, with a gun shot to the left thigh, after being knocked over — and subsequently covered by — the body of another victim. Glenn Martin Waldenstroem, who survived being shot in the face, asked that Breivik be removed from the room before he testified. With Anders gone, Waldenstroem told the court that the killer “looked angry and smiled simultaneously.” source (via • follow)
It is clear that there is concrete information that a public hearing with the suspect present could quickly lead to an extraordinary and very difficult situation in terms of the investigation and security.Judge Kim Heer • Explaining why he chose not to allow the hearing for Norway suspect Anders Behring Breivik to be publicized. To put it simply, we’re 100% behind this idea. Breivik basically did what he did to promote his controversial views, and by closing off the hearing, you prevent those views from getting a voice that carries further. That’s why he wanted to speak in public. He wanted the world to hear what he had to say. A good move on the Norwegian judge’s part all around. source (via • follow)
