Norway Mass Murderer Denied Furlough for Mom's Funeral

Prison officials feel that 34-year old Anders Behring Breivik, the mass murderer who killed 77 people and injured numerous others in Norway in 2011, did not show any compassion for the victims of his terrorist plot. So they showed Breivik no mercy when he requested a furlough to attend the recent funeral of his mother.

The mass murderer's mother passed away last Friday. Although his initial request for a furlough that would allow him to attend her funeral services this week have been denied, his attorneys told the news media that his client planned to appeal their ruling.

Breivik is currently assigned to the maximum security wing of Ila Prison in Oslo, where he is serving a 21-year sentence for his crimes. His sentence, however, can be extended time and again by prison officials if they consider Breivik to be a menace to society.

Breivik managed to terrorize all of Norway in 2011 when he went on a gun and bomb rampage that resulted in the deaths of 77 people in addition to causing injuries to hundreds more.

He was immediately jailed upon his conviction in 2012 of premeditated murder as well as terrorist acts. Norway abolished the death penalty for crimes in 1979.
