Norwegian Mass Murderer Gets a Private Psych Ward

Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik, the man whose senseless rampage left 77 people dead last summer, is considered such a threat to his fellow inmates that the government is giving the guy his very own psych ward. Ila Prison officials said they could not keep Breivik around other inmates for fear that he would take them hostage. Furthermore, they were unwilling to keep him locked away in solitary confinement for 21 years, which meant that something had to be done in order to contain one of the most notorious killers in Norway’s history.

In order to properly contain their prisoner, officials are building a psych ward for Breivik, which should, in theory, keep him tucked safely away from others. Except, that is, for the people the government would like to hire to play chess and indoor hockey with the murderer. Here’s hoping that particular gig comes with some insanely good health benefits.

Breivik has admitted to his crimes, and sentencing is reportedly going to take place very soon. If he’s considered insane — his mental stability is currently under evaluation — the government can keep him locked up for 21 years. However, officials are allowed to hold him beyond that point should they determine that he’s a danger to society. Given that Breivik has shown absolutely no remorse for the murders, it’s a pretty safe bet that he’s going away for a very long time.

According to Yahoo! News, the Norwegian penal system is considered one of the most laid back in the world. At present, there’s no capital punishment, the longest sentence is 21 years, and the focus is put on rehabilitation rather than outright punishment.

      I don’t understand. If he is a threat to other inmates (“for fear that he would take them hostage”) why would they allow individuals to play indoor hockey (contack sport) and chess (sitting 2ft. across from him)with him? I am sure there will be security inside but come on….he can play chess with someone online. What he did was so inhuman and to provide him human contact for his amusement baffles me. Like I said, I don’t understand.

    I would like to respond to you, Humphrey.

    Only the belief in Jesus Christ through the power of His Father, God, and the Holy Spirit can this obviously demon-possessed person be SAVED. Yes, a pastor is necessary to help him along to the right path; but only Jesus Christ can save him.

    Please understand that I am not belittling your statement; I was just revising it to give God and His Son, Jesus Christ, the credit.

    The person is every evil killing all those people. Only god can help him. Doesnt he even know anything about the bible my guess is no he doesnt have any good knowledge and what made him kill all those people. And who well be the one , to even want to play chess or and thing else with. If the prison has to built a new place for him and people that are in the prison have done crimes also and they dont want to be in concated with him. The person that does better be in the right frame of mine and have the good lord by his side. And i could be up on my prays with the power of god walk next to you. Cause that is going to be a job.

      Capitalize God when you use it. That is our God’s name as well among others.

        Wired a little tight are we?!

  • David

    You all are insane..God has nothing to do with this nor will He ever…..this guys thinking is simple…no respect for human life….set him on fire and lets move on…77 people….HELLO….77 people…

  • Mike

    I suggest building his cell in the woods where the public can decide his fate. This way the law makers don’t have to feel responsible. He was in a cell right? F*** him! Who’s in charge over there? They can go in the cell with him.

  • eric

    god god god

  • Susie

    Yeah…show other crazy asses that they can slaughter 77 people and then get the Governement to build a special cell for him to live…great thinking guys. I say if he is THAT much of a threat…he should be put to death. He is obviously a smug bastard anyway…why waste money to give him better treatment, when there are homeless people starving because the “system”…cant afford to help?? He doesn’t deserve to even be allowed to shower and eat,or have communication with other humans…much less Chess and Indoor Hockey. Smart thinking…give him a hockey stick to use to bash someones skull in?? Unbelievable and TOTALLY ridiculous!!!
