Tragedy in Norway

3 years, 6 months ago

I guess most of you have heard about the tragic happenings in Norway.
92 persons killed. 7 of a bomb in Oslo and 85 at a labour party youth camp.You can read details about the happenings in I guesses every (online) paper. :

Here I will write about how my experience of all of this was

I was so sure it was about what happened here in Norway. One of my friends who is only 17 was at the youth labour party meeting, but he survived by hiding in a toilet. One of my girl acquaintances who went to the same school as me was killed. When I and some of my friends went to visit him this afternoon, he was really depressed and shocked. He told me that as they ran towards the toilet the boy who ran behind him was shoot, and that it would have been him if he hadn’t been there. We each gave him a rose ad a card. He seemed to appreciate it. The publick has been really devoted to supporting those who survived the massacre by having meetings were they can talk about it in most major cities. (He went to it just as we left.)
At facebook it of course appeared groups like : Demand of public execution, 22.07.11 – We will never forget, Antifanpage of Anders Behring Breivik, WE HATE YOU ANDERS BEHRING BREIVIK, et cetra.
It is also sure that Norway’s inhabitant’s national feeling is strengthened. On facebook everybody puts a Norwegian flag badge in their profile picture, and joins groups like “To show that we stand together like a nation”. Our prime minister Jens Stoltenberg tells on live television how important it is to stand together, support those who knew someone that died, and how this is an attack on Norway and our interests.
My uncle had an interesting theory about the happenings. He meant that the bomb in the capital only was a distraction so that he could get more time killing the youths at the labour party meeting which he thought was the killers primary goal. This is made possible because all police forces were centered on the capital.

Andreas has also written a 1500 page book which is published online Link: (Though no one of you will read it. )

Thanks alright Tormod.

I think this post deserves it’s own thread anyway. I’m terribly sorry to hear about the people you know who have passed on, and glad to hear that your friend survived.

I hope that this sick, demented “man” will be swiftly brought to justice.

What’s also sad is that under the laws in Norway, this nut can sentenced up to 22 years in prison and that’s it. A mass murderer. Seems life keeps getting cheaper by the day.
