Man in Oslo Sets Himself on Fire

Anders Brevik Trial - Oslo Police claim the firetrucks were blocked.

Within the ongoing trail of the self proclaimed murdering revolutionary Anders Brevik, there are such strong sentiments that have attached themselves among the people in Norway.

Anders Brevik this last summer went on a shooting spree killing close to 80 people, many of them being children. This left such a horrific image of violence and sadness to the traditionally very peaceful nation. However it seems that the expression, When it rains it pours, comes in very handy here because recently a man set himself on fire outside the courthouse where Brevik will be tried.

The man who set himself on fire, is reportedly not associated to the trail, or the killings. The reason for his outburst of violence is unknown. Conclusions can be made that his actions were intended to protest the actions of the murderer on trail. But recent reports have stated that the man on fire was mentally deranged.

Prior to his lighting he tried to deliver a letter to Breviks lawyer inside the court house which ended up being confused scribbles. He then proceeded to go outside where he set his sweater on fire while yelling to the police in attendance to shoot him and relieve him of his pain.

The police ended up ripping off the sweater in time, while the man was sent to the hospital with minor injuries. The highly publicized court case in Norway has been a circus event in which he was declared sane and fit for trial. Brevik has used the media of his court case as a platform for the justification of his actions, and his antics resonate within a handful of mentally ill people in Norway.

As we can see from this man who set himself on fire the underside of Norway is starting to show its face. The mentally challenged man might not have agreed or even known what Anders Brevik was on trial for, but insane people attract the insane.

The further this case is publicized the more these incidents will happen. We can all agree that Brevik is a man that is dangerous and by all means deranged with his mind bent on a focused motivation of destruction. This personality type typifies many in society maybe those who will not hurt others in the pursuit of their goal, but at least enough for them to hurt themselves.

Crazy is as crazy does. Whether that is going on a killing spree, or setting yourself on fire. All we know is that the more attention and time Brevik has to use his voice to resonate with others, the more people will come to light and do something unpredictable.
