Anders Behring Breivik's trial in Norway has ended after the families of his victims staged a walkout in protest of his attempts to justify his actions.
As reported by BBC News, ABC Online and Deutsche Welle the Norwegian killers trial ended after 30 relatives of his victims walked out as he tried to justify his actions.
Mr. Breivik tried to explain away the massacre by stating those actions were necessary in thwarting what he perceives to be a coming Muslim invasion of Norway.
A mothers of one of the victims of the youth camp massacre on the island resort of Utoeya stated that the focus on Breivik's mental health isn't the real issue, the real issue in her mind is "never seeing him on the street again."
Breivik's lawyer has claimed that his client was driven to the action through the extreme politics that are outlined in his lengthy manifesto. The prosecutors however are trying to make the case that he may be insane and therefore not fit for prison but instead for a psychiatric ward.
Mr. Breivik spent some 45 minute outlining the numerous reasons he carried out the attacks on his fellow citizens, which involved everything from the questionable moral values of TV shows like Sex and the City and the high Muslim birthrates which in his mind are making Norway a "multicultural hell."
The boycott by the families who walked out stated that "he has a right to talk," but that they had "no duty to listen."
