Norwegians need to be prepared to the fact that Breivik will be coming out from prison and will join the society again: that is what Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, told the NRK (Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation) journalists. He added: “We do not have lifetime sentence in Norway”.
Be it that Breivik is sentenced to prison or psychiatric care he will eventually be released – even if he an old man. Lippestad has spend much time on understanding why Breivik categorizes people in various broad categories instead of viewing and judging people in accordance to their individual merit. Lippestad explains: “What has been interesting to observe is that people with such a totalitarian and one-dimensional worldview (i.e. Breivik) quickly adjust their opinions when they meet or see a person who does not fit their categorization. Women and Muslims he (Breivik) had met and who deviate from his categories are always an exception”.
