Norway? No way!

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Norway is one of seventeen countries (6 in Europe, 8 in Latin America, 2 in Asia and 1 in Africa) that have abolished life imprisonment (Russia has a special quirk by having life imprisonment, but only for men - not for women!). There's been debate whether we should abolish it in Sweden too, but so far we haven't. It's considered inhumane by human rights organisations and criminogists argue that it robs those convicted of an incentive to better themselves and thus makes rehabilitation less feasible.

I personally think we should keep it. Some people, like Anders Behring Breivik, simply do not deserve to ever be let out.


14 years? Fuck that. 14 years is the length of time that I spent in Korea.

They should have special considerations for special circumstances.

Although I'm sure there will be more than a few people waiting for him when he gets out.

Uh-huh... http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/blog/20 ... ve-updates

He admitted responsibility. He feels that it was cruel to have to carry out these acts but that, in his head, it was necessary.

He has said that he believed the actions were atrocious, but that in his head they were necessary.

He's stated that he went to Utøya [where 700 youths in the age of 15-25 were gathered] to give the Labour party a warning that 'doomsday would be imminent' unless the party changed its policies,.

He wanted to hurt the Labour party and halt its recruitment in the worst possible way, referring to party members as marxists.


:shock: Yeah, I think special considerations are definitely necessary here...

Xenophobia for sure but Norway is doing the right thing by carrying on as normal, terrorism, domestic or international, cannot change the way we behave. We can't let fear dictate your emotional response. If their law says 21 or 14 years then that's all he gets. The bigger message will be sent by treating this coward as just another speck of human excrement and nothing special. Just look at the states and how paranoid they have become? Are we becoming that way too if it happened here? Does capital punishment deter the nut jobs? I think not.

One possible positive effect of the low maximum sentence....
When police eventually arrived on the scene, the killer laid down his arms and surrendered without a fight.

Would he have done that in a country with capital punishment? :|

It's a start.

But why are you letting him keep his Johnson? That should be the first thing to go.

Another dude headed to jail:

Edmonton Oilers' goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin appears ready to do his time. Edmonton radio station iNews 880 is reporting the Russian keeper, who was caught DUI and speeding in Arizona last August, has given up appealing the 30-day jail term he was given as a result. He will split that sentence between jail and his own home, spending the last 15 days at home with an electronic monitoring device.He must also enter an alcohol treatment program. Khabibulin enters his third year with the Oilers this season.


Sorry mods, didn't want to start a thread for an Oiler. Can we just rename this thread "Incarcerated Assholes"?

You guys have trouble staying on topic don't you? :?

We rarely rename threads here - it only causes confusion, and we ask that if you have a news item totally unrelated to the thread, just start a new one.

Umm, I dunno. I think this belongs in the Beer thread (the Ugly side is yet to be covered over there...)

Or perhaps the Ahhh Summer Nights thread? I presume it was at night.

Or even A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. He never did get to the forum.

What would you do? Serve time, get a designated driver, call a cab?

Home Entertainment Discussion? He shoulda stayed home for the entertainment.

Playoff Beards? Here's one guy who's in no danger of getting one.

Am I insane for finding this absolutely hilariousl?! The Weight Gain Challenge -- what's the prison diet like? It's all over, he's going to jail.

Anyway, wrong thread.
