Anders Behring Breivik Will Likely Avoid Prison

Anders Behring Breivik — the man who last July hunted down and killed 69 teenagers on the Norwegian island of Utoya just hours after he set off a car bomb in Oslo that killed eight — has been declared "psychotic" during the attacks by two forensic psychiatrists.

"The conclusion is ... is that he is insane," [Prosecutor Svein] Holden told a news conference. "He lives in his own delusional universe and his thoughts and acts are governed by this universe."

If the court upholds their decision, then Breivik will avoid prison and instead spend the rest of his life in a psychiatric treatment facility. Which might actually suck for Breivik, seeing as how Norway's maximum-security prisons resemble IKEA showrooms. [Telegraph]
