    The Government is making a serious mistake. I have written about this twice before. But I will write this time also. Norway must have a separate law for terror oriented cases and for terrorists. If this is done people like Breivik and Espen will be secluded in isolated areas and can’t do any brutal killing of innocent citizens. What is the problem of keepig people like Espen behind bars? He has been doing ofenssive things against family members and was a potential criminal. I reiterate my stand that there be a separate law for handling terrorists so that innocent people could be saved. If this is not done we will see the death of more citizens.
