Norway: A Somali immigrant who wildly stabbed fellow passengers on board an Oslo tram 3 years ago is now seeking compensation from the state

Nina Berglund:

He claims he never should have been released from psychiatric care just days before he went amok, and his victim's own mother agrees.

The man, an immigrant from Somalia in his 40s, killed one of the passengers and wounded four others in the bloody attack on board the #17 tram as it rolled by Bislett Stadium on an August afternoon in 2004.

He had been sitting quietly on the tram when he suddenly pulled out a large knife, which he'd just bought in downtown Oslo, and started slashing at everyone around him. The shocked driver of the tram brought it to a halt and frantically called for assistance.

By the time it arrived, the man had fled, hijacking the car of a passing motorist. One of his victims, a 23-year-old man who didn't hear the uproar around him because he was deaf, was stabbed to death.

The assailant was eventually captured later that day and has been committed to psychiatric care ever since. Newspaper VG reported Friday that he now claims the state is liable for turning him into a killer because he didn't receive the care he needed at the time.

His attorney wouldn't elaborate on the case, nor would the organization that promotes patients' rights in Norway.

State health authorities earlier criticized a doctor at Ullevål University Hospital for releasing the man from acute care without having a plan to follow up his treatment. An intern on duty had actually handled the release, but the doctor was viewed as being responsible.

The victim's mother, Karin Mjåland, told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) on Friday that she understands why her son's killer is seeking compensation.

"I understand that he needs a confirmation (that the stabbings weren't entirely his fault) to get on with his life," she told NRK. "Living with the knowledge that you’ve killed someone and injured four others, must be terrible."

She and her family have also blamed Ullevål Hospital for the death of her son. "We feel they're responsible for the loss of our son," she said.

The state's real mistake was allowing him into the country in the first place.

Dude,

The more I read your blog, the more convinced I am that the leaders of the West simply hate their own people and kind and wish to wipe them off the face of the earth.

And they should promptly remedy that by sending him, and all his kin, right back to Somalia. Hasta la vista, killaz!

"Living with the knowledge that you’ve killed someone and injured four others, must be terrible."

Classic projection - the Scandinavian with the overdeveloped moral center and conscience projects her own search for meaning and behavioral genetic heritage onto the negro.

I have lived in close proximity to negros all my life, and I know better. Guilt is barely nascent in their genes.

I don't think that's the case. My own view is that the Europeans believe they can civilize the African barbarians and make them act like Europeans. Of course, the Romans also believed that they could civilize barbarians and their civilization eventually fell which is a fact that I believe most European leaders have failed to take into account.

What a shame that NOONE takes the blame for their own actions. I mean, this fellow had enough sense to stop and buy a knife, pay to get on a train and then says it was the doctor's fault that he killed someone? What planet is he living on????? Shame on him, he killed someone and he should be held responsible and his family should be giving all their money to the family of the dead young man! The world is getting screwier all the time.....

He won't even accept blame for his murder. He should never be "free," on the streets of Europe, ever again! He should be locked up for the rest of his life, or deported.

By suing the state, is he expecting to get away with the murder? (without criminal charges,deportation, and even counseling)
