We tend to focus more on rehabilitation than punishment in Norway. Seems to work just fine

Why is it wrong to try and rehabilitate people? I bet once people are released, only a small percentage return.

Good Prison: Ok, I may have punched a cop, but that was stupid of me. I'll avoid outbursts like that. I'm going to the gym today.....This place is great. I've really got time to reflect on my mistakes. I'm being released a better man or woman!

Bad Prison: WHAT THE **** !! THEY CAN'T PUT ME IN HERE!! THIS FOOD TASTES LIKE **** !!! I SWEAR! WHEN I GET OUT ALL YOU ******* COPS ARE DEAD!! I HAVE TO ******* **** IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!! *ANGRY GIBBERISH* I'M BEING RELEASED A VENGEFUL MONSTER!

Because dummy, it is a rehabilitation prison instead of directly punishing them and making them all ****** up from being stuck with rapists, murderers and druggies.

AND IT WORKS. Norway has a waaaaay lower per-capita crime level. Don't blame them for your ****** education and prison system.

Norway approaches prison as a type of rehabilitation. The system works, as they have the lowest re-offending rates in Europe. Although it would seem to make sense to simply punish criminals, the fact is if you don't invest in their future and give them alternatives to being a criminal they'll be back in before you know it.

Im in school for a criminal justice degree right now, and all I've learned this semester is that America's current system is ********* and is focused on general American ignorance and pride. First off, roughly 60-80% of our prison population is there for non violent offenses (drugs/traffic for example). And these men go to prison where they are basically brainwashed into becoming the "criminals" that we consider them to be. When everyone tells you you are a piece of **** , you begin to think you are. Not to mention the society that exists in prison, you have to change just to survive in worse off prisons. Our prison system is based off the good ol' American "get tough" idea. It's the same theory as sending kids to boot camps. It just doesn't work. Norway's system doesn't treat humans like **** so that they don't become **** .
Second, money is a ******** excuse. Imprisoning hundreds of thousands of people for the rest of their lives is much more expensive than rehabilitating the people that need it. If we spent the amount of money we do on preventing crimes and rehabilitating offenders back into society we would radically reduce crime in America. Of course, this is not to say Charles Manson or the shooters like in Connecticut and Arizona will be included. That's the one point where I disagree with Norway. If you already are a piece of **** I'm not going to polish you and throw you back out in the mix.

And yet their crime rate is lower than most.

Maybe treating prisoners like **** isn't the answer.

norway has a better system and a more effective system, they don't believe in punishment that much. it's about rehabilitation and getting these criminals fit for society.
Norway has a low repeat offender percentage and a high success rate.

these prisons are not only nicer they work better too. I am comparing these to American prisons BTW.

Why would they treath their prisoners so well, they don't deserve that?
People are more likely to break rules (in this case the law) when there's a lighter punishment waiting for them, then when there's a hard punishment. Many sociological experiments have pointed that out.
And it's also very disrespectful for the victims of the criminals.

I should mention that most of our prisons don't look like the one in the pic. Yes norwegian prisoners usually have access to tv and such things, but like others have mentioned there's a bigger focus on rehabilitation and taking away one's freedom than just making your life super crappy.

That's because the whole premise of "prison" is different.

Where you come from, prison is where bad people go as a punishment. They go there to have a bad time, so they can learn their lesson and never do harm again. And that works great! (/sarcasm)

In Norway, prison is a rehabilitation centre, where a member of society that has broken the law can be rehabilitated and learn his/her individual way back into the society, helping them with job-training and education.

Norwegian prisons actually try to rehabilitate their inmates rather than just punish them. In most of the world, the inmates are treated like **** , but in Norway, Sweden and a couple other places they're actually treated with respect and helped along the path to recovery.

maybe when they release a prisoner they want him to integrate back into society and not rob a bank to pay for the protection he got from a prison gang
