Paul Greengrass directing Netflix movie about mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik

One of the most heinous crimes of the century will be adapted in a film for Netflix by director Paul Greengrass, Deadline reports.

Greengrass, who is known for his contributions to the Bourne franchise, the Tom Hanks-starring Captain Phillips, as well as the breathtaking September 11 chronicle United 93, will direct from his own script the story of a 2011 Norwegian terror attack that left 77 dead, many of them children. The murders were committed by a single killer, Anders Behring Breivik, an extremist who dressed as a police officer while using guns and a bomb to carve a trail of carnage in the worst attack the nation of Norway has experienced since the days of World War II. 

The majority of the murders were committed at a youth camp for the nation’s Labor Party on Utoya Island, with many of Breivik’s victims trapped with him on the 26-acre island in Norway’s lake Tyrifjorden.

The film will reportedly shoot

Orange County mass murderer Scott Dekraai escapes death penalty …

Aug. 18 (UPI) — The man responsible for Orange County, Calif.’s, deadliest mass shooting avoided the death sentence Friday after a judge ruled prosecutorial misconduct made such a determination impossible.

Instead, Scott Evans Dekraai was sentenced to eight consecutive life terms without parole.

Dekraai, 47, pleaded guilty in 2014 to gunning down eight people including his ex-wife at the hair salon where she worked in Seal Beach in October, 2011. Dekraai’s motive was anger over a custody dispute. Dekraai was apprehended minutes after the shooting, was identified by eye-witnesses and never denied he was the shooter.

Despite the overwhelming evidence against his client, Dekraai’s attorney, Scott Sanders, succeeded in shifting the focus in the case away from the crime and onto the conduct of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office and county prosecutors. Sanders repeatedly argued before Orange County Read more at: https://www.upi.com/Calif-mass-murderer-escapes-death-penalty/5181503094452/

Death Penalty Off Table For Convicted Seal Beach Mass Murderer

SEAL BEACH, CA — It started with a morning in Seal Beach’s Salon and ended in a bloodbath that claimed the lives of eight victims. What has happened since is arguably one of the biggest disasters in the history of Orange County’s justice system, stretching from the court house to the Orange County Jail system, leaving witnesses to wonder if the punishment fits the crime.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals ruled Friday that Scott Dekraai, the worst mass killer in the county’s history, will not face the death penalty.

According to Judge Goethals, Dekraai will receive life in prison without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty on May 2, 2014, to murdering eight victims — including his ex-wife — and attempting to murder a ninth, 77-year-old Hattie Stretz, who survived the bloodbath at a Seal Beach beauty salon.

During the course of this case, victims’ families have been forced

Judge will determine whether Seal Beach mass murderer will face …



In a Santa Ana courtroom Friday morning, Scott Evans Dekraai will learn whether he could face execution for the worst mass killing in Orange County history.

After six years of delay and a series of controversies that rocked the county’s criminal justice system, Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals has two options. He can open the way for a jury to decide 47-year-old Dekraai’s fate.

Or Goethals could become one of the rare judges to take execution off the table for a convicted murderer because of law enforcement misconduct. In that case, Goethals would likely sentence Dekraai to eight consecutive life terms without parole.
