Here in Florida, that defense might just work.
Can you be sane and still do the things he did I wonder
He also wanted to be tried by a military tribunal - to which I say 'why not'? He'd be tried as a war criminal and probably executed for his crimes.
That is the classical argument. Can sane people murder dozens of innocents? Then comes the tricky decision on how to deal with this person.
They're coming right for us!
Self-defense against multiculturalism?
Sorry the world was too difficult for you.
It would give his thinking some legitimacy..
Probably not, but he's still responsible for his actions.
He was originally assessed as insane, but then reassessed as sane (Probably due to public opposition, as this would mean he gets a padded cell instead of a jail cell.)
Except Norway ratified Protocol 13 of the European Convention on Human Rights which absolutely prohibits the death penalty, even in military settings.
Norway also has the ability to prosecute for Crimes Agaisnt Humanity in a civilian setting, although they are not doing so here.

I got me the Vikings Disease, so I guess I am a related to you in some way.
Perhaps he will try to claim he ate some amanita mushrooms and turned into a Berserker?
According to the news I keep hearing this morning he sat in the courtroom looking unmoved when they read out all his victim's injuries/deaths. In contrast, he broke into tears when they played his own propaganda video. I'm guessing those are tears of pride that he carried out what he intended to.
Lets face it, he has admitted the killings, with this plea he can use the court as a platform to make one final rant.
Well, they're not allowing broadcasting of his explanation, so that's out the window.
I for one would like to see the bastard try to defend his actions.
In Norway there might be a press black out, but the foreign press it's very big news.
There's no blackout, just no live broadcast of that segment of the trial.
