See where Norwegian criminals serve their sentence.

 

Halden Prison is the second largest prison in Norway, capable of accommodating 252 inmates. The prison applies a humane approach to the penitentiary and rehabilitation work. The inmates have individual cells with bathroom and a flat-screen TV. The windows are made out of reinforced glass and have no bars. There is a shared kitchen and a lounge for every 10-12 cells, which resembles of a student’s dormitory. The guards in Halden don’t typically wear arms, and half of them are women.

I doubt this is true but I do notice a lack of black inmates. If those were there, it would have to be turned into a USA type prison in order to keep the animals under control.

In Norway we focus more on rehabilitation rather than punishment, and guess what: it works!

rehabilitation is the word. If u have ever served any time, u will know that it doesn't matter if u have a flatscreen or any "luxury". U are still locked in and can't do most of the things anyone else does. Does anyone really think that dark and creepy dungeons that have nothing else to do, but plan for your next move really turn criminals right?

Ridiculous, prison should be the kind of place you never want to be. The fact that it's such an awful place is a deterrent to criminal activity in and of it's self.

@beer,
funny how so many people in the states feel so strongly about that despite the fact that the USA prison and disciplinary system is an utter failure in almost every way.

i mean, what do you call a POV which feels more reinforced in its beliefs the more wrong that it's proven to be?

Depends on what crime you consider. In general it is about 50%, but that is because of the "power distribution" criminals. A small group who are responsible for a huge amount of criminal activity and are usually frugged out fo their minds. For things like robbery, possession of significant amounts of drugs, grand theft, about 10%, for murder, rape, child abouse and white-collar stuff: near 0.

Yes, the prison is for real. It may look like a vacation, but the real job is repairing the mental damage.

Then lets hope that Breivik gets in one of these to repair his mental damage etc.
