Anders Behring Breivik Sorry He Didn't Kill More

Norwegian gunman Anders Behring Breivik apologized in court to "militant nationalists" for not having killed more than the 77 people he shot to death in a horrific spree last year.

Breivik was found sane at Friday's sentencing, denying prosecutors the insanity ruling they hoped would show that the massacre was the work of a madman, not part of an anti-Muslim crusade. Breivik smiled with apparent satisfaction when Judge Wenche Elisabeth Arntzen read the ruling, declaring him sane enough to be held criminally responsible and sentencing him to "preventive detention," which means it is unlikely he will ever be released.

    Such people deserved to be tortured until their last breath. I can't explain to myself how could a trial for such horrifying crime to go for so long!!! Sane or not, this monster killed 77 people and it was the most normal thing to be sentenced to "preventive detention" immediately.
