Norway is giving murderers a second chance. To date, the country is known for its generous, and to some obscenely liberal set of laws. Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 individuals nearly four years ago. Initially Breivik placed a bomb in, urban Norwegian capital, Oslo killing eight. Then he proceeded to claim the lives of 69 others, including many teenagers, who were attending a summer camp on a nearby island.
Oslo University gained Breivik as one of their newest students, while remaining one of the top tier universities in Norway. University officials contend that Breivik met all of their admissions criteria and could not deny him acceptance. To that degree, Breivik will complete the remainder of his coursework from prison, having no direct contact with professors. Business Insider reported: "many were appalled when Breivik, who holds far-right anti-Muslim views and has shown no remorse, applied for the three-year bachelor's course in political science. Some students now at the university survived his attacks, while others had friends or relatives killed." Breivik is currently being held in solitary confinement.
