Norwegian Prison

basic necessities of life doesn' t seem
like much of a punishment.

everyone is freaking out but the reason the prisons are like this is most likely because crime rate is way lower in norway than what it is in america.

Norway and Sweden have some of the most successful prison systems in the world. Their return rate is astronomically lower than in America.

Do you still get raped or is that just an American jail thing?

******** of a prison to whoever deffies society, having the means not to;
Nice rehabilitation prison for the ones that got little choice but to fail;
And permanent seclution to the mentally unstable.

Im glad there's this new option. In my country prisons are the criminal universities, it would be better for someones to get into a rehab like this. Tough not every society is worthy of this threatment.

That prison looks a little too easy to escape.

As far as I know, these prisons are only for white collar crimes, like embezzlement or illegal contraband (Not like drugs, but, I don't know, something LESS than drugs that are bad but not AS bad)

Gonna agree with a lot of other people in the comments. Prison isn't about punishment. It's about re-introducing someone into society as a better person.
User avatar #751 to #722 - thepandaking (05/11/2013) [-]
in an ideal world, yes, that would work. So would communism, and that's not sarcasm. however, humans cannot uphold a system like this and not take advantage of this as swedishassassin explained.
#728 to #722 - swedishassassin (05/11/2013) [-]
So if I live in the projects, all I have to do is ****** someone and go up in the social ladder. Yep, that's fair to the person ******** and his/her family. I'm sure all they want is for that man to be a better person and not have any considerable answer to his crimes.

Yes, you should be rehabilitated, and I'm not disagreeing with you (to an extent), but you don't need to get a hand-job and cupcakes to do it. Military-style bootcamps would arguably be more effective, teaching people discipline and patience towards stress.

In my honest opinion, I think these prisons are a lot better than usual prisons. I think that by focusing on the positives in these places rather than having negatives like in other prisons, that it will give the prisoner a new outlook on life, and will help them to find a better path than crime life. Whereas the negativity in US prisons causes gangs to form, causes people to spend their whole lives in prison and keeps them in crime after they are free.
#715 to #700 - KingTroll ONLINE (05/11/2013) [-]
I do agree with you on that, but at the same time money spent on prisoners to live luxuriously (for the fact that they get housing and food for no cost) could go to house orphans or schools or anything that would benefit someone more deserving than a prisoner due to the fact that the prisoner ****** up somewhere in life when a child in need has it worse than a prisoner when he did nothing wrong

One alternative is to have an Island in the Pacific evacuated and used for every prisoner in the western world to be dumped on for the rest of their lives. If they don't follow the rules, they can fend for themselves, it would encourage people not to commit crimes.

Consider the following: you'll spend the 21 years in that single room with no option to go anywhere else. You'll really be bored of it in just weeks if not days.
User avatar #696 - Bravechampion (05/10/2013) [-]
Ok, so I agree that harsh, difficult prison circumstances for most crimes (auto theft, fraud, parking tickets etc.) is often probably not the best decisions as it can quite possibly fester and turn the person into a more dangerous situation and perhaps rehab is a better choice. Even in circumstances with rape or premeditated ****** , rehab can be beneficial. The issue I have with all things being rehab, is rehab can often not work on those that just don't give a **** . The serial sociopaths who, no matter what you do, are not going to turn around their decisions and will continue to terrorize the people around him. These are the people I wonder how to deal with, because nothing can help them.

And yet they have one of the lowest crime rates in the world, with a relapse rate of less than 10%.

It works.

And where did you get that money from? EU???
User avatar #675 - thedutchs (05/10/2013) [-]
Probably because prison in most European countries is about rehabillitating people so they can go back into society.

There's no use in punishing people.
#677 to #675 - anonymous (05/10/2013) [-]
Punishment is a way to rehabilitate people...You teach someone using reward/punishment techniques.

It isn't about 'punishment', it is about the incapacitation of threats to society.

It isn't about how nice it is, it is about how much you pay for someone who broke the law.

America profits off the prison system.
Prisoners are basically saves here.
Some of the people who argue in favor of legalizing ********* say "WELL THERE WOULD BE A LOT LESS PEOPLE IN PRISON, AND IT COSTS SO MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO KEEP THEM THERE", but they don't realize that they're profiting from those people. (Some argue that's one of the reason why ********* is illegal.)
So they want their prisoners to come back again, they don't want them to become good members of society.
This is also why privatized prisons are a thing. Do you really think someone would privatize something that makes no profit?
#674 to #669 - anonymous (05/10/2013) [-]
Fun Fact, slavery is still legal in a way. The 13th amendment reads "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."

This was actually heavily abused after slavery ended. Blacks would randomly get arrested for no reason and sent to prison, then people would rent a prisoner for like 12 cents a day. Though not as widespread as slavery, it was worse than slavery because the slave owners didn't care if they died. During slavery, slaver owners had to pay a lot for slaves, but with this system they only lost the 11 cents they paid for that day.
