I love all these people defending the Norwegian prison system. All you have to do is ask yourself: If a man robs and kills my mother, is it fair that he will be sent to a prison that treats him THIS well? Where is the punishment in that?

Stop thinking of the inmate and think of the victim/ the victims family.

Since the quality of living is sooo high in Norway the prisons are pretty standard (really). BTW this is how the life in a well functioning social-democracy is. We've got so high life quality that these aren't rally that good. And don't think for a second that these pictures are representative for all the prisions, it really depends where you live and what you have done.

If they treat prisoners like animals, they'll probably get out of prison even worse than how the came in, and probably kill more people in the process.

It's simple. You kill the guy who killed your mother and go to prison instead.

It isn't about punishment. It's about rehabilitation.

Or we could just off them and be done with it without all this extra cost plus there would be no repeat offenders.

And remain on level with 3rd world countries where as almost the entire western world don't use death penalty.

Go back to your cave, filthy liberal

It actually costs a lot more to sentence someone to the death penalty than to give them life in prison (don't know about costs associated with this kind of prison, but that's how it is in the U.S.) This is because of all the repeated appeals, court bills, etc. that come with the criminal trying to avoid death (they probably can't pay for it if they can't afford bail, either). And what if the convicted really is innocent?

You're telling me if someone killed your parents indiscriminately you have no problems with the murderer living like a king for 10 years.
