Norways Luxury Prison

Postby johnsmith » 04 Mar 2018, 15:14

Norway’s prison system is known as one of the most humane in the entire world.

It may also be one of the most radical.

“This is prison utopia,” American prison warden James Conway said in “The Norden,” a made-for-TV documentary. “I don’t think you can go any more liberal — other than giving the inmates the keys.” The production explored Conway’s experience visting Halden.

The 75-acre facility tries to maintain as much normalcy as possible, an important concept in the Norwegian prison system, Jan Stromnes, deputy head of the prison, said in the documentary. That means no bars on the windows, fully equipped kitchens, and friendships between guards and inmates.

“Every inmates in Norwegian prison are going back to the society,” Are Hoidel, Halden’s director, said in another production by Gughi Fassino and Emanuela Zuccalà. “Do you want people who are angry — or people who are rehabilitated?”

Like many prisons, Halden seeks to prepare inmates for life on the outside with vocational programs: wood-working, assembly workshops, and even a recording studio.

Norway hasn’t imposed the death penalty since 1979. Life sentences don’t exist, putting the focus on rehabilitation instead of punishment.

The Scandinavian country has an incarceration rate of 70 per 100,000, totaling 3,571 inmates for the entire country. The US’ rate is more than 10 times Norway’s — 707 per 100,000, or 2,228,424 people behind bars.

At Halden, it's sometimes hard to tell the inmates and guards apart.

As for 'reoffenders'.

Well, Norwegians don't breed well. Having children 'compromises' their lavish lifestyles and quality of living conditions ...like 'cushy' prisons.
At the most, the Gays ...er, I mean Norwegians - just 'import' Turks and Assyrians to build their 'population' status.

People are sent to gaol AS punishment, not FOR punishment.

Any idea re recidivism in Norway, John?

I've lived in Boarding Houses far worse than that in Sydney. Hell, the Cops would make their appearance at least a few nights of the week.

Difference is: you could leave, prisoners can’t.

Actually. People never 'leave' Australian Boarding Houses. They get kicked out.
Too much sex, booze, drugs and more going on to want to leave.
Much like Australian Prisons.

Norwegian Prisons look like a Nerd set-up. I bet they all behave like Ned Flanders in there.
I've worked for a German who's been in a Prison set up like this.
(they have them in Germany.
He said its like Camp Holiday and better than Julian Assange's arrangements in an Embassy.

They have one of the lowest recidivism rates in the world, currently 20%,[1] with approximately 3,933 offenders in prison,[2] and one of the lowest crime rates in the world.

(44%+ in Australia)

fuck you're full of it. You wouldn't last a second with those 'nerds' with your big mouth. And you don't know anyone who worked in anything like this. This is a world first.

Here's an idea? How about you leave your bluster and one up-manship out of it and look at the results?
