Shootings and Bombings in Norway by Loretto on 23 July 2011 3:49pm
 
My heart breaks for the parents who sent their kids to this island camp. Between the Gabby Giffords shooting at the start of the year and now this shooting in Norway, there are some very sick people living amongst us. A sad day for Norway.

That is a huge shock for a hole nation and more. As I lived in Oslo almost one year, it is very shocking to know it. To see Oslo with so many soldiers and people so sad is horrible. Guys as the terrorist the police cought there are not an exeption in Scandinavia, that is a shame. I am very sad about it.

The whole tihng is just do so sad. Until today, it was so safe there at that royalty could walk around with NO minders. This paradise has been turned upside down, and it so unfair. RIP to all the bomb and gunshot victims.

Only if you want to read it folks. It is a collective view of what various papers are reporting about the horrible incident in Norway.

Sighthound:
"Norway has always been seen as a haven for peace."

And it still is. Like Bali, for example. (Edit: Apart from those directly affected), the poor local people always suffer the most from these incidents because no-one wants to visit their place anymore .. (cry)..

Breivik has said in court that there are "two more cells" in Europe. This is scary stuff.

http://content.usatoday.com/communities/ondeadline/post/2011/07/judge-orders-closed-hearing-for-suspect-in-norway-killings/1

Judge Kim Heger said about the suspect's claim to the existence of two more cells to his extremist organization: "The accused has made statements today that require further investigation, including that 'there are two more cells in our organization.'"

I can understand that you consider it 'scary stuff', but the chances that you are in danger are probably lower than your chance of being hit by lightning, for example.

Please understand that I'm not saying that to be callous, but just hoping that people can stay calm and keep incidents like this in perspective.

Please try to relax.

Thanks for being concerned about me ev! The "scary" part that I refer to is that people would actually agree with Breivik's ideologies! Even if it is just one or two more people; the whole thing is so sick. The Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh (1995) had two accomplices. He killed 168 people. I suppose it is just the whole callousness of taking another life because you don't like how they think or you don't like their political beliefs, that's what I find sick and scary.

But thanks for looking out for me.....I am relaxed, sort of....well not really...the whole thing just riles me.
