Oslo Police Want Sympathy

The officers of Oslo’s elite Delta Force drove because police don’t own a transport helicopter, then were rescued by a civilian boat when their own broke down as it tried to navigate a 1-minute hop to the island. It took police more than 90 minutes to reach the gunman, who had mortally wounded 68 people. Breivik dropped his guns and surrendered, having exceeded his wildest murderous expectations.

Police spokesman Johan Fredriksen rebuffed journalists’ questions Tuesday about the planning and equipment failures that gave Breivik untold extra minutes to kill. He called the criticisms “unworthy.”

“We can take a lot, we’re professional, but we are also human beings,” Fredriksen said

Breivik’s lawyer, Geir Lippestad, said Tuesday his client was surprised that he was able even to reach the island without being stopped by police, much less be free to kill for 90 minutes or more with his assault rifle and handgun.

When officers did arrive, he immediately fell prone on the ground in surrender.

    On the positive side, they used a car to get there, instead of bicycles.
