"Norway massacre gunman Anders Behring Breivik declared 'not insane'"

When there is nothing else to try, the insanity defense is the last line of defense. From the UK Telegraph:
"The experts' main conclusion is that the accused, Anders Behring Breivik, is not considered to have been psychotic at the time of the actions on July 22, 2011," the Oslo district court said in a statement which reopens the debate on whether the self-confessed killer can be sent to prison. "That means that he is considered criminally responsible at the time of the crime." The new evaluation counters the findings of an initial probe that found Breivik was suffering from "paranoid schizophrenia," which meant he would most likely be sentenced to psychiatric care instead of prison. . . . .
