Asked why he spared one man who survived the shooting spree, Breivik said he thought it was because the man’s appearance made him look "right wing-oriented."
"When I looked at him I saw myself," Breivik said. "I think that was the reason that I didn’t fire shots at him."
If found sane Breivik would face 21 years in prison, though he can be held longer if deemed a danger to society. If sentenced to psychiatric care, in theory he would be released once he’s no longer deemed psychotic and dangerous.
