I acknowledged that Norwegian law was followed and that that was the important thing. As for the "hooplah," I never said anything about that. Are you kidding? I'm Canadian. We don't do hooplah. I would expect Norway's or any other country's court system to proceed with as little hooplah as possible. The media might be another story.
Yes, no hooplah well every time Canada win a major ice hockey tournament there is no reaction
Yes, that's Canadian system you think needs improving, something you have a much better knowledge about than I do.
Norwegians are happy with their lawmakers for the most part when it comes to maximum sentencing if they weren't, then it would be addressed. There really isn't anything to discuss, there is maximum sentence and there are provisos to extend it in special cases. The media went overboard initially then they had options where people were able to get away from it.
