And yes I remember the Dutroux case Hilde. Horrible.
It was the best decision the court could make given the laws that governed the case, not necessarily the best decision that could have been made if the court had complete discretion to devise a sentence.
The controversy is not over the decision the court made, but rather the laws. For me, the people of Norway and their elected representatives are the ones who get to decide what they want for their country.
Of course, people on message boards can voice opinions about it, and I suppose that is considered as "whining" by some who insist on "whining" about people who have opinions that differ from their own.
