Christian fanatic and mass murderer Anders Breivik killed 77 people in the hopes of starting a modern-day crusade. Now serving a 21 year sentence in prison, he says his outdated video games amount to “serious torture”.
What else would you have them do? Not allow them to do anything recreational? murder people? Seriously, should they just have a bunch of people sitting in a cement box all day doing nothing. I am not agreeing with the piece of shit,. I think he is being a big piece of shit. But there is no problem with providing prisoners entertainment. We can’t just institute capital punishment - that is fucking barbaric. And we can’t leave them sitting all day doing nothing.
I don’t support capital punishment either, although if there ever was a case where I thought it was legitimate it would be here, and with people like him! But when you are too soft on criminals and treat them so well, when they don’t deserve it, these are the things they complain about! And 21 years!! Are you kidding me? That’s all he gets, he deserves at least life in prison for what he did and the continuing pain of the families of the 77 people he killed! That is real torture, and the fact that he is complaining about his version of the play station he gets to play with, shows how spoiled he is in prison!
Why not put prisoners to work? Save taxpayer money. Give prisoners productive outlet. Give prisoners sense of responsibility. Build up a society.
Thank you secretjewishatheist! That’s a point I’ve been trying to make in the past. I think prisoners should be put to work and I know there is a lot of debate against it and it’s very controversial and offensive to say this for some reason.
These are criminals, who are living a pretty comfortable life, without doing anything, that is wholly paid for by taxpayers, who are paying for their food, sleeping facilities, recreational activities, and everything.
In my opinion, it shouldn’t even be a question, they have to do work, because that is a tiny measure to take in order to pay taxpayers back. Not only that, but unlike contributing to a welfare system, we despise criminals and wish to have them removed from society. The part that really burns is, those families who he has tortured for life are indirectly paying for every service he receives, they pay for his meals, they pay for everything he gets to have and enjoy!
Putting criminals to work, is in no way slavery! I definitely think prisoners should work and especially if I was a family member of one of those poor children who he killed! In fact I can go a step further and say they should do the work that is not very much desired in society!
It’s such a shame that we believe it is good to have a mass murderer like this piece of shit should just be relaxing in prison and have the tax dollars pay for his food, healthcare, video games, gym facilities, accommodations, and everything that so many hard working citizens are work so hard to have, some of which they cannot afford because of the high cost of living.
This illustrates well why plebs should not be allowed to administer justice.
To quote the Canadian Supreme Court,
“I do not accept the Crown counsel’s submission that there is a pressing need to streamline the process for labelling a small class of individuals as dangerous offenders […] A breach of an individual’s [Charter] rights cannot be justified or condoned in a free and democratic society because the class of affected individuals is small.”
A society that categorizes citizens into different buckets, and treats each bucket different, is cause for great concerns.
On a side note, with the rightly justified xenophobic backlash in Europe, which I blame on *cough*muslims*cough*romany*cough*, I think some people are happy with Mr. Breivik.
