Re: Norway terrorist attacks 91 DEAD

A total waste of life, poor families.
My only question is why? Why would someone do this horrif act of murder? What was going through their minds?
My heart goes out to those bereaved.

Re: Good enough punishment, or should there be more?

I used to work for our local force and fully understand the reasons why TRAFPOL are so stretched. TO31s comments are succinct and very accurate.
