This prison is nicer than my house (16 Photos)

This prison in Norway is a buncha' bullshit. Nestled in 30 acres of lush pine forest, the complex costs $252 Million to construct. The 'prison' has a cultural center with a recording studio, rooms for art, a library, a winter garden, a sports center with a large room for classes, separate houses for long visits with relatives; room for school and laboratory studies, medical center and manufacturing workshops. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to rob the Royal Bank of Norway.

    this is what liberalism gets you, prisons that are nicer than some poor peoples houses.

      Also “gets you” people who exit prison rehabilitated and almost never come back. As opposed to here where our prison system just turns out guys who’ve learned how to not get caught as quickly.

      • mook

        You are a god damn retard. Nice prison does not create an environment for better rehabilitation. Choice doesn’t change with a temporary better environment at all.

    • 100window

      Everyone who thinks this is ridiculous should check their crime rates and reoffending rates against the USA’s

      • Nateb123

        Agreed. The harsher your prisons are, the worse your criminals become. Consider this turning the other cheek on a national scale. Being made to just wait out part of your life is often punishment enough.

      You have a strange logic. You’re blaming the liberalism from one country by comparing that country prisoning system with social system and the poor people from your country.

    • dave420

      Great logic. Liberalism is bad because criminals in countries that have their shit together live better than poor people in your country, which doesn’t have it’s shit together. You should first see how poor Norwegians live before making such a retarded statement. Hint: Better than your poor people. And with less crime. And more happiness. But that’s too hard – fuck socialism! USA! USA! USA!

      • mook

        Something none of you are touching on is that crime is a choice.

        Because some dip shit keeps making the same choices has to do with their intelligence, their experiences, and the resources they have. When one of these fail for them they usually go right back into crime.

        It isn’t liberals or conservatives. It isn’t “I’ve been in a shitty prison, well I should now go commit more crimes.” Jesus Christ you are all stupid.

      This is what respecting human rights gets you. No wonder prisoners in the US return to crime after being released from prison. Its becasue the state abuses the fact they are locked up and pretty much forces them into providing cheap labour specially for milatry corporations with close ties to the government.

  • stafferty

    They cuddle after prison rape here

  • Napalm

    Well, prisoners are still human. Maybe if they have access to decent facilities they may learn a craft other than stabbing people in the face

    • Greg

      Napalm, that’s exactly what I was thinking. The whole setup seems really unfair, but at least the prisoners are in an environment where they can actually be rehabilitated…

  • keithp420

    looks like a Banksy on the wall in the last pic…

    • Stubb

      It’s Norwegian artist DOLK; you could say he’s inspired by Banksy, but then again pepole have been doing that kind of graffitti for decades…

  • Robi5150

    I’d like a one way ticket to Norway please!

    When I get there:

    Job #1…rob a bank.
    Job #2…wait for the fuzz to show up.
    Job #3…live on Easy St.


    • top dog

      TRY GETTING A JOB, Then live on easy street.

  • EA

    Well, treating prisoners like s h i t and providing an enviroment were criminal techniques are easily acquired sure hasn’t helped the situation, right?
    How about trying to REFORM these people?
    Just a thought.

  • isawoj

    Do they say “please” and “thank you” whilst raping your anus?

    • Kevrobmc

      I don't know? Do you?

  • MrLizard

    Furnished by IKEA?

    • tedson

      They actually went to IKEA and picked up the entire prison. It’s in their catalog as BJORN

  • terry

    well if you really want to rehabilitate someone and make them a useful member of the community then this prison is actually a good idea, but i think you would have a hard time convincing the tax payers here that

    • Nateb123

      Agreed. The big difference here isn’t just cultural but financial. Norwegians are hugely taxed but it means they don’t have the horrendous underclass issues the US has. So standard of living is higher in general, and this prisoner looks that much more normal to them as a result.

      • Doh

        the U.S. prison system costs the taxpayers $50 Billion dollars a year to maintain, with 2.3 million people incarcerated, the largest in the world. I think the difference is that U.S. prisons are a privatized business and keeping non-violent inmates (often drug offenders) in the system is just a way for those businesses to create a cheap labor resource. also, those 2.3 million people have an enormous effect on unemployment rates, especially in minority populations. maybe it's time to rethink this "land of the free" mantra that we're always talking about, and actually increase the rate of rehabilitation…

        • Kevrobmc

          As you say, the penile system in the States is becoming privatized at a rapid rate. It does not make sense to the corporations to rehabilitate the criminals. It's all about profit for them, not human rights or rehabilitation.

  • Mattythegooch

    OR, don’t do SHIT that puts you in prison in the first place. I’d much rather fuck my “wife”…and by “wife” I mean the chick I married.

  • asfgsdgdsf a leading worldwide wholesaler company (or u can say organization).

  • aussiebacon

    This is the prison for the criminals who brought you the GFC! … not your average smucks!

  • pickuptheotherline

    WHAT! no TV, forget that, I’m never going to Norway and breakin the law.

  • AnyoneForCoffee

    Go to prison once and the state should try to rehabilitate you in civilised surroundings.

    Go to prison a second time and you live in austere surroundings as a deterrent.

    Go to prison a third time, you have proven yourself incapable of living among the law-abiding, so you end up in a cellar and they throw away the key.

  • HellHathNoFury

    I’m sure glad we pay a bachillion dollars to go to a decent college and get a room that is smaller and room mates that commit more crimes.
    And these people get it for no cost to themselves.

    • Donald

      you said it. this is just ridiculous

    • Donald

      are you a college student?

      • HellHathNoFury

        Nope, I’m old and crusty.
        Paid my own way through community and helping pay for someone else’s now.
        I could buy a small house….

        • Anonymous

          Ha. You don’t look old and crusty in your pic.

  • Hotdog Neck

    This isn’t a prison, it’s the new Orange County Choppers assembly plant.

  • Greg

    With my luck, I’d commit a crime there and end up in one of their shitty prisons. Haha. In reality, this is probably just a minimum security prison, for people who did really bad non-violent things.

  • McBeastie

    Hey, look….maybe a prison that rehabilitates instead of teaching you how to be a better criminal.

  • myragehush

    This is what a real prison should look like. The purpose of putting people in jail is rehabilitation, and people living in Hell won’t learn to reform themselves once they get out. They’ll most probably go back to crime. But look at this prison, once you get out of it, you’d be a better person. You’d be back as a contributing member of society. Hell, they probably don’t have prison rape there.

  • Merrr

    This is nicer than the dorm room I’ve been living in. I bet its properly heated and air conditioned too.

  • doo dah doo doo

    I’d be proud to get shanked there.

  • Dingo

    i’m gonna get in touch with my viking roots and rape and pillage a village in Norway
