The funny thing is, their system works. Besides, if you lived in Norway you'd probably be so well off you wouldn't need to steal.

You'll just get deported back to your own country, and spend time in a prison there.

Wanna know why its like this?

Norway believes in rehabilitation more than punishment. They believe if you treat a prisoner as "mentally ill" rather than "dangerous scum", then they start to see themselves as useful contributions of society and thus fix their life as such. Did you know that the Norway corrections systems has ways to give them equal opportunity jobs after rehabilitation? This is so that after they're released, they dont immediately return to crime.

And guess what? It works. Norway has one of the least numbers of "repeat offenders" in the world. The US has one of the highest numbers of said statistic.

Would you get sent to prison if you broke into a prison?

I thought the whole point of prison was to be punished? Not to be a place that you would WANT to go to..

Norwegian prisons aren't really "prisons". They're correctional facilities. The criminals don't stay there for long. They reform them and kick them out, so they can go be productive members of society. You know, making the ******** useful instead of just wasting taxpayer money on them.

I can see why this is done though. Prison is meant to reform criminal, not make them worse.

Treat people like decent human beings, and they will become decent human beings. Makes perfect sense to me.

There's a lot about Norway on here today.
I've come across three almost in a row.
I always thought there'd be norway that would happen.

Why the **** do they treat inmates so ******* well? I'm sure Norway has murderers and rapists too, meaning that they are DANGEROUS inmates. Yet they have a prison nicer than most U.S high schools.

Because they aren't stupid enough to think that treating a crazy asshole like **** , will make him less of a crazy asshole.
Proper help and freedom under the supervision of responsible people, will him less of a crazy asshole.

Dosen't sound so strange, when you think about it, now does it?

Before anybody starts bitching about how Norway prisons are so cool and how your country's prison suck, just realize that the population of Norway is barely 5 million people while a country like the US is of 317 million.

I heard a lection about how come Norway, sweden, denmark, canada etc so low on crime. Well i'll skip to the end of it. The conclusion was that there is a connection between how much people in a country trust on someone they do not know (but still from the same country).
So in Denmark, Canada and Norway ( so on) it was almost 80% who trusted on someone they did not know, however, in the US and all the other crappy countries, the trust was only on about 20-40% ... Well and the connection was that there were more crime in the "non-trusting"-countries

**** me right

Must work, Norway has a crazy low reoffending rate.

Turns out that attempting to rehabilitate people actually works better than locking up as many as possible in prisons run for profit!
