Oslo: Family killer wants another chance

In January 2003, a 32 year old Norwegian-Somali in Oslo knifed his wife and two children, who were 8 months and two years old at the time, to death. The reason was that he was sure his wife was disloyal. After the murder he went after the man he suspected of being his wife's lover. The man sustained many knife wounds before the 32 year old was apprehended.

In October 2003 he was sentenced to psychiatric care. Since 2005 he's been allowed out of the hospital for two days a week. He uses this time to go to the center of Oslo and among other things go to a mosque. Now he's requesting to do away with the forced treatment since he wants to start anew and build a family.

According to Dagsavisen, people who have met him have called the police to report the "murderer on the loose".

According to psychiatrists the man is not dangerous as long as he takes his medicine. The man says he is able to do so without being forced. State prosecutors don't accept that as a guarantee.

The psychiatrists also say that the situation has changed since the murder and that's why he's being allowed out on his own. Before the murder he heard voices commanding him what to do, and that's not the case anymore.

Why can't the victim who SURVIVED the stabbing take this savage to Court and at least ensure that he can never be financially comfortable EVER in Norway? Maybe that wd induce him to leave, and thus make Norway a safer place.

Also save on prison expenses.
