Posted:Very sad and disturbing events in Norway reported yesterday...

For me it's so mind-boggling how some think that killing innocent people would serve their ideals... no matter whether right or left wing...

I would guess that far more than 1.000 people are directly affected by the loss of loved ones... more than 5. - 10.000 by the loss of friends...

Prayers to families and friends...

I work and sleep too much to ever be up to date with the news but when I did hear about it al, my mind first went to...

"Goddammit, I hate that guy. Why did he have to choose NOW, when Australia is JUST ABOUT to get 18+R game classifications to have a massacre and say that he "trained" using some violent video game. Now EVERYONE anti-18+ gaming advocate just has to say "Look what happened in Norway"

Posted:still not getting it - it's monday morning redface

I'm all for rating (violent) video games... though having played them and neither going on a killing spree, nor intending to do so - these kind of games can have serious impacts on kids/ people's minds.

that said: I don't believe his intent has been manifested by playing these games. guess it's more like a key-lock principle.

a few more can of worms: he had these guns and enough ammo to continue for a long time... european laws don't allow him to get sentenced for each and every killing individually - he might walk free after 20 years... at the same time I feel that capital punishment would be far too easy - "life" is the right answer...

Posted:It disgusts me that the reaction has been that he's not a "terrorist" just a "right-wing lone-wolf" or similar.

It's fecking terrorism.

Terrorism is terrorism. It's not limited to race or religion.

Posted:Additional: a very religious friend of mine is ranting about how the terrorist is all over the papers as being "Christian" and about how going on shooting sprees after setting off a bomb isn't Christian-like activity.

All I can think of is "welcome to how Muslims have been feeling since 9/11"
