Here's something that almost all the mass killers of the last fifteen years or so have in common: they've been called "nerds." James Holmes, who allegedly murdered 12 people in a crowded Colorado movie theater on Friday morning, was described as a "nerd" by his uncle within hours of the shooting. Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik is, in the Telegraph, a "puffy-faced computer game nerd." Columbine killers Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold were "innocuous nerds," the Los Angeles Times claimed in 1999.
Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik — a big fan of wetsuits, hazmat suits and Lacoste sweaters — has enraged iconic French fashion brand Lacoste by mentioning the company in his manifesto and wearing it repeatedly outside of jail. In fact, the unwanted attention is getting so bad that the company has written to Norwegian authorities to ask that they stop letting Breivik wear Lacoste. From the Telegraph:
Well, how's this for creepy? Admitted terrorist Anders Behring Breivik, who killed 77 people in a simultaneous bombing and spree shooting, took Norwegian authorities on a tour of Utoya—the island on which he shot 69 people to death and injured dozens more.
A full week after their incredibly heroic efforts made the pages of Finland's largest daily newspaper, their story has bobbed its way across the Atlantic and onto our shores. It concerns Hege Dalen and Toril Hansen, a lesbian couple from Norway who were sharing a quiet dinner near the doomed island of Utoya when they began to "hear gunfire and screaming" coming from the island: Anders Behring Breivik's shooting rampage had begun.
Bored rich moron Pamela Geller is a big deal in the internet anti-Islam scene, thanks to her unreadable blog Atlas Shrugs. Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik is reputedly such a big fan that he gave her a few shout-outs in his manifesto! Which is why we're interested in an email she got in 2007 from an anonymous Norwegian who was "stockpiling weapons."
Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik is charged with killing 68 people, many of them teenagers, at a youth camp on Utoya Island near Oslo. How did he manage to get off that many shots when Norwegian law "forbids the sale of clips for hunting rifles that hold more than three bullets"? By ordering clips from the U.S., of course.
Norwegian mass-murderer Anders Breivik could wind up doing time at Halden Fengsel, multiple news outlets claim, which calls itself a maximum-security prison, but looks more like a cross between an IKEA and college dorm. Take a tour of its Banksy-like wall murals, climbing walls, and recording studios in this video. [via atlanticwire.com]
It's been almost a month since Bono and Spider-Man told Glenn Beck to leave Fox News for a career in the lucrative field of "crazy guy with a website." So why don't we check in on him? Today, on his stupid radio show, he compared the Norwegian Labor Party youth camp that was the site of a spree killing that left 76 people, most of them teenagers, dead, to the Hitler Youth:
Police have charged Anders Behring Breivik, a 32-year-old right-wing extremist and Christian fundamentalist, as the suspected gunman in yesterday's massacre at Norway's Utoya Island youth camp—which left at least 85 people dead—and the bombing at the government headquarters in Oslo, which killed seven.
