Norway: Life in Prison Suite Doesn’t Agree With a Mass Killer

See Anders.  Anders is unhappy.  Very unhappy.  Anders killed 77 people in Norway in 2011.  In turn, he received only a 21 year sentence and a three cell suite in a prison that looks like the house that Ikea built.

However, he would like the world to know that he is still serving hard time in inhumane conditions – among them, he has to experience the indignity of strip searches, he is not allowed hydrating skin cream, and his cell lacks a view.  As further example of the hardships that he is enduring, the stab-proof pen that he is allowed makes his hand cramp.  And his coffee gets cold.


Okay, so as not to be overly flip, he does state a legitimate concern in that he is isolated from social interaction essentially all hours of the day, and lacking any view of the outside world can also have debilitating mental effects.
