Norwegian man who murdered 77 people on a island is given life sentence. Victims families are victimized all over again. I personally am tired of the legal system always siding with the criminal. Your opinion on how the victims family should feel.

Since Norway has no death penalty, there was, unfortunately, little choice. With 77 victims, I am sure the families' reactions, besides their shared grief, are all over the map. Norway has such a different culture than the US, but I can't fathom how they can absorb that much sadness. I have not looked it up, but I am certain that gun deaths per capita there are among the lowest in the world.
Perhaps 77 life sentences would have been more appropriate.
I agree that it should have been 77 life sentences.
I don't think that the death sentence is the harshest punishment. I actually think of a life sentence for killing to be worse by far than a death sentence. Unless it was 20 years in jail, then a death sentence. The killer is locked up with a lot of time to whirl around inside (usually) his own mind. If you had a murderer's mind, would you want to spend a lot of free time with it? I wouldn't!
I personally feel that neither the death sentence nor 77 life sentences even begin to match what he did. Whether you are a Christian who believes in hell, or you prefer to think in terms of Karma, this person is going to suffer for an eternity.
But, his sentence can be increased 5 years at a time with each parole hearing (not sure how many years between). And it's been suggested that he will never get out.
I think they can actually hold this assh*** indefinately. Here in the US, one would get 10-20 years just for using a gun in a crime! But we would drop the gun charges and euthanize him for the 77 murders.
