    Also- in other prisons in Norway, for people serving time for for lesser crimes, they let men and women serve together. in the same prison. And walk freely around fraternising and such. if you steal cars or burgle that would happend to you…

    -other prisons have houses, like a village. one is on an island, and they just walk arond the whole ting freely.

    -Do some city prisons are not as nice as the one in this article, they are more like a middle range hostel.

    they don't want the prisoners rebeling or committing more crimes when they get out. They have to join the Troll Depopulation Initiative and help build the electric fences that keep the trolls in

  • @PerfectHorizon

    Recidivism in Norway is somewhere around 9%….in the United States its close to 80%…..

    So this where that cowardly loser Breivik going to spend the rest of his life. Awesome.

    I say stitch a yarmulke to his head and parachute him into one of the tribal regions of Afghanistan.

    If you raise your kids properly, you too can have prisons like this.

    A "corrections" facility that actually aims to correct behaviors and rehabilitate people? Unheard of!

    Looked like the bed was made out of IKEA supplies…….

    Not a bad future after all for Anders Breivik

    Norway's homicide rate: 0.6 per 100,000 people. America's homicide rate: 4.2 per 100,000 people. I think the Norwegians are doing something right.

      Turns out not letting everyone run around with guns helps a lot too.

    I also get the feeling that criminals in Norway might not be the same type of criminals we have in the US. In many ways.

    What is the point of anyone trying to escape, when the prisoners are treated like this.

  • saholl04

    so, if your child is beaten, raped and murdered in Norway, you'll spend the next 21 years helping to pay the taxes to provide your child's murderer with a nice room with a tv, a gym, and to attend work shops? you'll basically being helping to pay for your child's murderer to take a vacation?

    • luca

      that is so wrong, let's do something original! let's kill him!

    • c-dub

      If it turns that person into a productive, law-abiding citizen — someone who won't murder another child — then yeah, I'd pay for it.

    #12 looks like some Canadian Prison Guards in thought, word and deed…

    Though this doesn't sound like it would be necessary to do so, but I think we could use the knife on the left to cut off part of the handle of the one on the right…

    In the US, we claim our prisons are for "correction and rehabilitation". In Norway, they actually are. If you're treated as a criminal, chances are you will become a criminal (or a worse criminal than you already are).

  • @AetherMcLoud

    Relapse rate in the US and UK: ~60%. Relapse rate in norway: ~20%. Think about it.,9171,…

  • caity

    Even their prisoners are hotter than ours.

  • Joetaxpayer

    Here's some food for thought. In the US when someone gets sent to jail, why do they just get three hots and a cot? Why not put them to work. Hell even give them a couple bucks a day to show for some hard labor. Make them work off their stay and save some taxpayer money for something more worth while. Like paying off our outrageous debt.

    • c-dub

      Prison work programs are common in the US — and they take jobs away from private industry.

  • rayman

    I think Netflix only works only in the U.S.

  • Lou

    Why don't we ship our prisoners to Norway? It might be cheaper.

  • Jay

    Are those beds from IKEA?!?!

    • Rune

      No, they are actually made at the woodworking shop in another prison (Ringerike) by the inmates there.
