The one year anniversary of the death of a loved on is very very hard. You find yourself wondering where the time has gone when it seemed that only yesterday he was with you.

When that loved one is lost in such an horrific act of mass murder it is incomprehensible and people struggle to cope with the fact or their death. How much more difficult is it for Mette Marit. She stands with her country as a member of the NRF to commemorate in a public act of mourning. Do you think that perhaps she would like to be one of the crowd and mourn in private instead of having a full day of "official" duties to mark, what is for her, a personal loss as well as a National Tragedy.

Mette Marit looks like she is trying to hold it together, as if she might not be able to control the anguish. Not for her the solace of other family and friends, letting go and freely howling with rage and loss. No, she stands for her country not for herself or her family. It is a very hard place to be I should think.

My gosh! It's been a year already. Like everyone else I disagree with the comment that Mettie Marit tears were not real. She lost her step-brother in that horrible attack. Everyone in Norway even if they didn't personally know anyone that died was affected by it.

I don't know where to put this or to make a new thread;

Anders Behring Breivik has been found to be sane enough to be jailed for the killing of 77 people in Norway | Mail Online

He received 21 years.

Too short a sentence; he should receive life imprisonment.

I believe that 21 years is life inprisonment in Norway.
But they do have a (new) law that says that a prisoner may be kept in prison if there is a chance that people would try to hurt him if he was set free. So, in effect he will probably spend the rest of his life in prison.

There is no defined life imprisonment in Norway, 21 years is the maximum sentence he could have been given.

There are two situations here;

"The maximum determinate penalty is 21 years imprisonment, but only a small percentage of prisoners serve more than 14 years."

"The indeterminate penalty, called "containment" (Norwegian: forvaring), is set at 21 years imprisonment, and the prisoner is required to serve at least 10 years before becoming eligible for parole. If the prisoner is still considered dangerous after serving the original sentence, the prisoner can receive up to five years additional containment."
The additional five years could continue indefinitely.

The issue for me is the sane part, it's what he wanted and he's now in jail satisfied.

21 years is maximum he could get. However, the prison sentence can be extended indefinitely if it is proved he'll pose danger to public, or will be in danger himself.
Personally, I hope he rots in prison. Shame he's secluded while there: other inmates would have made certain he has a pleasant time there.

This was the best verdict that the court could come to, under today's penal system. Yes, he might be satisfied with being found sane, but so is the majority of Norwegians and the families of the victims. Surely, their satisfaction with this verdict is far more important than his. It was important to us that he could be held responsible for his actions and be punished for them, not to be excused by mental illness and freed from all responsibility with an insanity verdict. His life in psychiatric ward would also have been a lot more lenient than his life in prison. 21 years imprisonment is just a formality, he will spend many decades in jail, most likely for the rest of his life.
