He will receive a harsh punishment of 5 years probation and 1 year house arrest. That will show him who's boss.

I can't believe they may be going for manslaughter with terrorist intent. No matter what around 15 years is the max he will get. Murder sentences in Europe are alot lighter than in North America

Now compare this to the moral panic whipped up in NZ by the media and government ( virtually the same thing at present) The country descends into mass hysteria as Whitcouls book retailer withdraws Jordan Peterson’s 12 rules due to offensive jacket photo and the headlines roll on for another week with such gems as “ rivers of blood”
