Empathy, Thy Name Is Anders Behring Breivik

Never let it be said that Anders Behring Breivik doesn’t feel our pain. From the latest New York Times report on his testimony.

“When people say they have lost their most beloved, I also lost my entire family, I lost my friends. It was my choice. I sacrificed them, but I lost my entire family and friends on 22 July. I lost everything. So to a certain extent, I understand.”

Don’t you feel better knowing that he understands?

“I have never experienced anything so gruesome. It was probably even more horrendous for those I was hunting.”

We’re happy for your newfound self-awareness, Anders. But it’s a day late and 77 lives too short.
