76 Dead in Norway, Shooter Faces Only 21 Year Maximum Prison Sentence

Norway is a very liberal country. The Labor Party, which leads a coalition government, is on the left, even for liberal Norway. Under Norway's criminal justice system, killing over 70 people will lead to a maximum of 21 years in prison.
The person suspected of carrying out terrorist attacks in Norway will be charged for terrorist activity, while the maximum prison sentence in Norway is 21 years, Norway police said Saturday.

Over ninety people have been killed in the two attacks since Friday.

Police have confirmed that arrested 32-year-old Norwegian, Anders Behring Breivik, was involved both in the explosion in Oslo, and in a shooting at a youth summer camp on Utoya Island.
