21. The wrongness of this is that a mental hospital is not secure enough
Edited on Tue Nov-29-11 11:36 AM by ooglymoogly
for a mass murderer, insane or not.

More have escaped from mental hospitals than can be counted or for that matter have been caught.

If he escapes and repeats his crime, perhaps on a much larger scale, viciously killing hundreds of men women and children...again.

Of fairness...what then?

Norway would turn so hard right your head would spin.

It is moments like these in history, overt acts of mercy in the face of a heinous act, the rabid right slobber over...what brought Hitler to power...what brought us the patriot act and the loss of our constitution and so on and so on.

If this guy is insane half the GOP and all the religious right is insane.

For pugs it is the direct path to power and fascism.

Norway is risking far more than public outrage, they are risking fairness itself.

But then, the fascists in Norway already know this and its power for exploitation.
