Someone try to convince me Norway's prison system of rehabilitation is good, because for some reason it seems like everyone on funnyjunk agrees with it and I don't understand why.
Too be honest it seems like utter shit. Let's start out small. If someone commits a petty crime and goes to jail, there's no reason why this should work! Sure you would probably still rather live in your own house but there's no real consequences for their actions. They know what they did is wrong, telling them it's wrong isn't going to change anything.
Or does their rehabilitation not work like that? Can someone explain.

It is shit. I'm sick of criminal apologists. If you committed murder/rape it's only just to be executed for edification. Clean and simple, no taxpayer leeching and a lesson to those who dare to cross the line.

United States incarceration is like the equally evil opposite of political correctness: we've come to expect detrimentally harsh punishments for crimes simply because it makes plaintiffs feel better. Our high-security prisons serve only to transform one-time offenders into hardened criminals, and we've vilified felons to the point where they can have an extremely difficult time readjusting to society once they're out on parole. Minimum security prisons, meanwhile, serve as refuges for wealthy convicts, who can afford to lawyer their way into far safer and more inhabitable punishments.

Norway, meanwhile, believes that criminals should be treated humanely, and that the justice system should attempt to mold them into productive members of society. The results are both psychologically and statistically sound--repeat offenders are very rare, and hell, the costs of running their cushier prisons is probably lower.

The only ones who really should be in prison are those who commit violent acts who need to be removed from society. Still rehabilitation should be a priority over some self-righteous sense of justice. Keeping criminals in prison is really expensive. Non violent offenders should be given a fine, community service, or some magical fairy princessistrative punishment that outweighs the gains of committing the crime. And also, before comparing the US system to the Norwegian system, bear in mind that these are two entirely different countries with different demographics and entirely different populations. And demographics make a huge difference when it comes to crime statistics.
