The Associated Press reports that “Anders Behring Breivik knew it would take practice to be able to slaughter dozens of people before being shot by police. In a chilling account, the far-right fanatic claimed Thursday that he sharpened his aim by playing the video game “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare” for hours on end” (Emphasis added). This was certainly not the type of endorsement the video game industry was looking for.
In his cold and calculating manner, the AP notes that “Breivik told an Oslo court he also took steroids to build physical strength and meditated to ‘de-emotionalize’ himself before the bombing and shooting rampage that left 77 people dead. He figured he had no more than a 5 percent chance of not being killed by police.”
AP also notes that “His lack of remorse and matter-of-fact description of weapons and tactics — he even considered using a flame thrower — were deeply disturbing to families of the victims, most of whom were teenagers.”
“They perceive him as evil and dangerous and reopening wounds,” said Mette Yvonne Larsen, a lawyer representing the victims’ families. “It’s one thing to read explanations, it’s quite another to hear a person present such a message,” Larsen said. “I am personally quite shocked.”
