@Musuko42: They can study him whilst he's imprisoned to learn more about the psychology behind what he did, and why, which might help in future cases.

Now that`s a reasonable argument I hadn`t considered. I don`t necessarily agree that the potential payoffs are worth the costs of keeping him detained, but that is certainly a point that I did not consider.

No; I understand they have laws and different morals than we do; they shouldn`t change those either, so the sentence is fine. I`m more stating that I don`t understand the concept of denying a death penalty.

@MattPrince: You sir, make me believe that there is hope yet for Europe. This is a no-brainer to me - he should be killed.

Brevivik was not sentenced to prison the american way. This is Norway and not USA and in Norway they have different forms of prison sentences, one of them and the one Breviivk received is best translated as "Caretaking".

Caretaking means that when his 21 years are up, his sentence can be prolonged in 5 year intervals, indefinitely. And who here thinks he will not be subjected for an indefinit extension?

@HumanAction

"Therefore, in the overall scheme of things, I see no benefit to holding him instead of killing him. Perhaps I am missing something?"

Silence of the Lambs.

They can study him whilst he's imprisoned to learn more about the psychology behind what he did, and why, which might help in future cases.

That`s just one idea off the top of my head.

Anyway, does there need to be a pragmatic reason beyond their country feeling that it is morally unacceptable to kill him?

LordJim You win 1000's points!
You nailed it.
A civilized country has principles. We value humanity. Killing Breivik will not change his actions, and will make all taxpayers accomplices to murder.
