When word of the two attacks carried out by Anders Behring Breivik came from Oslo on Friday, then on through Saturday, my first thoughts were, “Another Euro-loony with a gun. Wonder how long it’ll be before they announce he liked KMFDM?” [Apparently the favoured soundtrack for psychos. See also Pekka-Eric Auvinen, who shot eight people in Finland, and originator Columbine killer Eric Harris] But the more that came out about Breivik, the more it seems that he was not a psychopath with a large collection of guns. Or, at least, not just a psychopath with a large collection of guns. Then details of the staggering death toll came out: eight in the Oslo bomb blast, and at least 68 in the mass-shooting at Utøya.
Really, the only thing I could think was: “Well done!”
