A national tragedy

At least 84 people died when a gunman opened fire at an island youth camp in Norway, hours after a deadly bombing in the capital, Oslo, police say.
Police have charged a 32-year-old Norwegian man over both attacks.
The man dressed as a police officer was arrested on tiny Utoeya island after an hour-long shooting spree. The search for other possible victims continues.
The Oslo bombing killed at least seven. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said the attacks were "like a nightmare".
Mr Stoltenberg, whose offices were among those badly hit by the blast, described the attacks as a national tragedy and said civil servants were among the dead in Oslo.
"Never since the Second World War has our country been hit by a crime on this scale," he told a news conference in Oslo.
He added that he was due to have been on Utoeya - "a youth paradise turned into a hell" - a few hours after the attacks began. Many others were injured there as well as those who died.

so terrible...

I went to high school with him, how sick is that!
I don't even remember him, he was obviously a lonely freak.

This is definitely the worst year ever.
First we lose my brother in-law, and now this...

Let's switch to 2012!

We have a some freaks too in Belgium, and the thing is ... they are locked up, ... on hotel ... and it doesn't make things better a bit.

SIlent sicko's ... the worst kind.

2012 ... I'd settle for 2013 ... the predictions for 2012 aren't that super either, if you choose to believe, that is.
