    Norwegian prisoner demands PS3 and computer

    Though prison seems an unlikely place for (relatively) modern gaming consoles, petitions for devices have grown in recent time. Last year, an Australian inmate took legal action in an attempt to score a computer and an in-cell PlayStation 3. Now Norwegian Anders Breivik has done similar, kicking up a ruckus and threatening to hunger strike if his PS2 isn't upgraded.
    Anders Breivik is serving a 21 year sentence for the murder of 77 people during a shooting spree and bombing in the summer of 2011. This past November, he sent a list containing a dozen demands to the relevant prison authorities, calling his prison conditions "torture" and decrying his current video game options, among other things.
    The list, which was acquired by the AFP today, demanded among other things an update to his PlayStation 2, wanting instead a newer PlayStation 3 with a better choice of games. In particular, he wants to choose the games he gets to play, and he wants "access to more adult games", complaining that he has been given things like Rayman Revolution, "a game aimed at three year olds."
    Another complaint is against the "worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873" that he has been given access to. Instead, Breivik wants access to a PC. He goes on to threaten to hunger strike if his demands aren't meant, saying that he has been "put in hell" and that he is being tortured to death as a result of his current situation.

    Why is he not executed yet?

    well, damn. why stop with a PS3? give the guy a lambo, crown, and pet tiger while you're at it.

    must've been real hard work killing those 77 people.

    i think a 5 course meal every night would suit his current dwelling too.



    /sarcasm

    Authorities should remove his PS2 for such a brazen display of audacity. Trash shouldn't even be allowed daylight. let alone a TV, or PS2!

    This $#@! ticks me off. Prison is a place to avoid, it's not meant to be a break from the hardship of life. This swine should be thrown in solitary for even thinking he's entitled to anything.

    I second Fiji. The dude killed 77 people, many of which teenage children with there whole lives ahead of them. This piece of $#@! was caught, and sentenced to jail.
    Jail is a punishment for $#@!s sake, this guys living the high life. Regardless of the 'quality' of the games he's playing. He's still playing, when he should be rotting.
    Take it all away from him otherwise you're just glorifying him, giving him the spotlight and control.
    Let him strike, like a spoilt little child.

    77 murdered?

    I'd hire a psych evaluator. Extensive interviews - fin out what makes him tick - fears, vulnerabilities, likes/dislikes.

    Then exploit those fears until he pleads for "peace".

    There are gangs yes and violence but they have the.luxuries like free health care, free dental, free internet, tv, etc, now there are the blue collar jails with very little violence with everything ie the Pensacola federal prison on the beach.

    It's one thing if he demands for it. It's another if they give it to them. This many doesn't deserve anything for what he did, much less additional luxuries.

    It's ridiculous how people live better when they go to jail. Things they didn't have on the outside, they get on the inside, paid for by the very citizens that are victims. smh

    I don't think prisoners have had it tough for a long time now, even when the Nuremburg trials were going on they had to provide entertainment for the Nazi prisoners because they believed it stopped them going mad or killing themselves. These were people responsible for war crimes and genocide but were given hospitality when they showed non to millions of people.

    To everyone asking; why hasn't he been sentenced to death yet? Because we who live there believe humans shouldn't govern over other people's life and death. Because we believe anyone can change. Our system does it's best to prevent miscarriage of justice.

    Rest assured though, ABB will never see the light of day.

    When you allow for one prisoner to be sentenced to death.. torture, violence (physical or psychological) it becomes. A. Slippery. Slope.. and sooner or later someone wrongfully accused pays the price.

    The greatest penalty you can give a murderer is to allow him to wake up every day face his crimes.

    Norway is an extremely progressive nation that the rest of the world really should pay more attention to. You guys (and the Scandinavian region in general) are a fine example of what happens when a country gets its $#@! together and actually thinks.

    The notion of a reformation system (instead of a punishment system) is a great one. The fact is that the justice and prison system are not filled with people like Anders Breivik, most of its prisoners are completely sane people with far, far lesser crimes who actually have a chance to turn their lives around and rejoin society as beneficial members, instead of remaining parasites on the taxpayer's dollar by remaining a prisoner. That's the whole point, and Norway's method of handling things has shown to be much more effective at eliminating repeat offenders.

    That's something a lot of people should remember when thinking of this article. Anders Breivik is simply a rare flaw in an otherwise superior system. The mass-murderer may see some unjustified luxuries, but its in retrospect to a larger scheme that operates for a greater benefit.

    I don't agree with the death penalty but my point was that this man is responsible for 77 deaths, yet he is threatening his own life because he thinks he deserves a more leisurely experience than he is already receiving now, personally I find it hard to justify any kind of humanity to such an individual. I understand that they need activities and need to be occupied so they don't all go insane and kill themselves but they're in there for a reason.

    Obviously it not working because he's still having murderous intention, just this time it towards himself.

    What's next, a rapist demanding hookers while in prison after raping 77 women? LOL
