Anders Breivik (The Norway massacre, 2011) – disguised himself as a police officer before planting a car bomb in close proximity to government offices in Oslo, Norway, killing eight people on July 22, 2011. Breivik, 33-years-old at the time of the killings, then drove to the island of Utoeya, where a summer youth camp of Norway’s governing Labour Party was being held. He opened fire, killing 69 Norwegians, most of which were teenagers. Breivik believed he was trying to stop the ruling Labour Party’s “multicultural experiment” and the “Muslim invasion” of Norway and Europe.

While the courts eventually ruled that Breivik was sane when he carried out the attacks, sentencing him to 21 years in prison, a psychiatric evaluation found him to be a paranoid schizophrenic and clinically insane.

Breivik admitted to taking an ECA stack, a combination of ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin before the attacks. While illegal in Norway, the mix is popular among body-builders who use the drug as a stimulant and for weight loss. The drug boosts self confidence and one’s willingness to take risks, as well as increases physical and mental performance due to the brain’s ability to absorb more oxygen.
