The Norwegian killer will be residing in a very comfortable prison - and we find this offensive - but why exactly? What would be gained if he were to be jailed in a cold, miserable dump?
I am playing devil’s advocate here, perhaps even the actual devil’s advocate as he is a demonic monster of sorts. Yes, I’d like to see him fried – I’d even hit the switch.
But Norway is a funny kind of country – and the events leading up to the killings, and the subsequent discussions – are par for the course.
If you haven’t seen the photos of the prison – google it. Let’s just say that I’ve stayed at worse hotels.
But someone who is convicted of a crime like that will have to be kept separate from the inmates – lest they tear him apart.
He will be spending the rest of his life in prison.
Should he be put in a miserbale horrible place – will this teach him anything? There is no rehab involved – as he will not be returning to society?
As a deterrant? Don’t kill 100 people because you will be put in a cold, clammy prison cell?
