re: #7 Obdicut

It might. And any prisoner in the US system might get let out at any moment due to a pardon. So what?

He’ll be kept in prison forever, most likely. They have a review set up for just that purpose, for the incorrigible.

Norway and the US are different places. What “works” there doesn’t automatically work here. I don’t have any problem with executing a man like Brevik, who admitted killing more than 70 people. In Norway, there is no chance he will be executed. Although i go back and forth on my feelings about capital punishment, I choose our system.
