The trial of confessed Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik is coming to an end in Oslo. 

Breivik has admitted killing 77 people in a bomb attack and shooting rampage last July. 

On June 21, prosecutors asked the court to rule Breivik insane and send him to a mental institution. 

However, in their closing arguments on June 22, Breivik's lawyers are expected to refute the insanity finding.  

Breivik himself says he should be declared sane, but acquitted on grounds that he was defending the Norwegian people by fighting the supporters of Muslim immigration. 

A final verdict is due by August.

It as a lasting testament to our civility that the parents of the scores of teenage children Anders Breivik methodically killed have not ripped his heart out with their bare hands. But to continue to give this coward, this pathetic loser, this depraved monster, a forum for his obsessive ramblings adds insult to injury.
Those detached enough to consider that perhaps Breivik might have something to say should reflect that in the free market place of ideas his divisive thinking won very little support. To have to listen to his fixated ideas over and over not only perverts justice, but also beats the drums for vengeance.
The sanctity of human life does not permit us to consider even the possibility that there might be some validity in what Breivik is saying. He should find no audience with any of us. His killings have shaken us all to the core. And though infamy and oblivion might be the worse a civilized society would deal him, may he never find peace on earth as long as he lives.
