The mass murderer who mowed down teenagers at the Utoya youth camp in one of multiple attacks in Norway today was seen in Oslo prior to his attack at the youth camp. After the Oslo blast he went to Utoya, dressed as a policeman, and in order to gain entry to the the youth camp, said he was on security detail in light of the Oslo bombings. Got that? He got through security and opened fire on the children.
It takes an evil of unimaginable depravity and barbarity to conceive and execute such carnage.
Witnesses on the island told Norwegian television that the man identified himself as a police officer when he entered the camp. “He said it was a routine check in connection with the terror attack in Oslo,” one witness told VG Nett, the Web site of a national newspaper.
Bjorn Jarle Roberg-Larsen, a Labour Party member who had telephone contact with teenagers on the island, said: “Kids have started to swim in a panic, and Utoya is far from the mainland. Others are hiding. Those I spoke with don’t want to talk more. They’re scared to death.” NY Times
"She has talked to some of her friends but still some of her friends are missing," said Ms Bakaas. "I don't know if they are alive or in hospital." She said police were still hunting for missing people on the island and for those who tried to swim to the mainland. "A lot of people here now don't know if their children are alive or not."2220: BBC
Anita Bakaas told the BBC her daughter was on the island when the gunman hit, but managed to hide in a toilet with some friends from where she sent her text messages. Ms Bakaas said her daughter could hear gunshots the whole time. "It was scary, scary, scary."
Oh, and if I hear another television or radio reporter refer to muhammad as "the Prophet Muhammad," I think I am going to puke. He's not your prophet, assclowns.
