Norway’s Mass Murderer, Anders Behring Breivik, Could be Headed to Luxury Resort Prison

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

If you think Norway’s mass murder, Anders Behring Breivik, will be headed to a 6’x8′ cement prison cell, think again. Breivik could be housed in accommodations rivaling a luxury vacation resort. This is Norway after all– not the USA, the UK or Germany.

According to a report in the UK Telegraph:

Halden Fengsel prison was opened last by King Harald V and is home to some of Norway’s most hardened criminals, including murderers and rapists.

The jail is spread over 75 acres of woodland just outside Oslo and facilities include a sound studio, jogging trails and a two-bedroom house separate from the main facility where convicts can stay with their families during overnight visits.

Guards move around the prison unarmed and often play sports or eat meals with the men they are tasked with watching. Half of the prison staff are women, a policy based on research which shows a female presence induces a less aggressive atmosphere.

Norway certainly has a unique perspective on crime and punishment. It almost makes want to travel to Norway and commit a crime so I can spend a few months living at the sumptuous Halden Fengsel resort prison.

    Norway is a joke. I have zero sympathy for them now.

    Imagine, the maximum sentence you can receive in Norway is 21 years and the convictions can’t be consecutive so the 32-year old Anders Behring Breivik will be all of 53-years of age when he gets out and living at a state-funded resort like this, he may ask authorities if he can stay longer.

    This really makes me livid.

    Norway needs to reconsider their approach to punishment.

    No sane person can say sending a man who slaughtered more than 70 kids and set-off a bomb in a busy office building killing 7 deserves rehabilitation at a luxury resort that rivals a Sandals. This monster should be punished. Not rewarded with the equivalent of winning the lottery.

    Kill nearly 100 innocent people in cold blood and your punishment is 21 years at the picturesque village of Ulvik. Something just isn’t right about this. Criminal offenses usually mean you get sentenced to prison.

    Not a resort.

  6. okjimm,

    FOFLMAO! Jesus “entered” me once. It was many years ago, back in my single days in college. I wonder what happened to Jesus?

  7. RALPH,

    I’m not able to follow your premise.

    Your links begin with U.S. Medicaid, that link to Sean Finn/IRA, then to Labour with lots and lots of hatred for Liberals and Democrats. By all accounts, Anders Behring Breivik, is criminally insane.

    Anyone who could detonate a bomb and kill innocent office workers, then the don police drag to co-opt the trust of teenagers and shoot them at point-blank range because they are the sons and daughters of Labour politicians, is clearly a few cents shy of a dollar. But thanks for posting.

  8. Randy Arroyo says:

    If Norway sends Anders Behring Breivik to a prison resort then they’re essentially rewarding him for the carnage he perpetrated on the people of Norway. This makes zero sense. In fact, it makes less than zero sense.

  9. Marcus Ybanez says:

    I’m unfamiliar with Norwegian culture but I can’t imagine the surviving families are happy to think this lunatic killer who took the lives of their loved ones gets to spend 21 years living at a resort?

    Somehow, it just doesn’t seem fair.

  10. JollyRoger says:

    As uncomfortable as it might make us to ask, we have to ask: who is doing a better job of rehabilitation? When I look at Norway’s crime rate, and compare it to ours, I can’t really criticize them much. They are clearly doing things better than we are.

  11. Tim says:

    Jolly beat me to what I was going to say. We may not agree or even like what another country does but the bottom line is statistics. Let’s face it, we were shocked to hear about this atrocity. Unfortunately if it were here, we would be saddened but deep down we expect shit like that. btw The dude got most of his manifesto from right wing hate groups in America, it’s been reported.

  12. feminazi says:

    From everything I’ve read about this outrageous act of violence, Norway, which has a remarkably tolerant attitude toward immigrants by European standards, has been grappling with a growing seething and growing amount of nationalism and xenophobia over the past 20 years. Jean-Marie Le Pen of France is often cited by rightwing politicians in Norway as an example of the type of politician Norway needs to see more of in order to confront their growing foreign-born population.

  13. Unconditional1 says:

    Leave it up to the Norwegians to have a prison system that is rationally civilized. Perhaps our lock-em-up and throw away the key for practically every crime, (including jaywalking) in this country, is all wrong. Our Judicial system is driven by insecure egos, not common sense. We might do well to take a page out of Norway’s book–just because that is the way of America, doesn’t necessarily make it great.

  14. Insouciant says:

    I think the Norway bombing and youth camp mass murder will undoubtedly lead to a national examination of how punishment of criminals who carry out heinous crimes. Since this case involved the deaths of so many people, most of whom were children, Norwegians will stop thinking in terms of recidivism and will demand harsher sentencing. The notion is already taking hold across Europe that a tolerant society breeds extremism.

  15. okjimm says:

    Of course Glen Beck said the guy was just killing “Hitler Youth”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/blogpost/post/glenn-beck-norway-camp-sounds-a-little-like-the-hitler-youth/2011/07/26/gIQArUGoaI_blog.html

    gees, the guy has no shame

  16. Thomas Senior says:

    Maybe he wasn’t treated with respect therefore he didn’t have respect for the people that’s why he murdered them. But there he will actually be treated with respect and treated like a human instead of an animal caged up for 23 hours a day.
