This just in from a German newsstation: the suspected killer of 2011 Norway attacks, Anders Behring Breivik might be facing "up to" 30 years in prison. You beleive it? Thats maybe 2 months per person killed, at worse!
On the other hand Dominique Staruss-Kahn, the French politician who allegedly raped and sexually assualted a woman in New York City, might be facing up to 74 for years in prison!
Conclusion: the European justice system is too lax, the American one is too harsh.
