‘To us, it is irrelevant whether he sits there and reads fiction or whether he is studying a book of political science.'


I would tend to agree. Maybe he'll even learn something useful since he never finished highschool, and realize the error of his ways.

He even looks like a mode for Lacoste. It is rather strange to have the current record holder for spree killings allowed to go back to school instead of riding the lighting, but it's not my country. Good work Norway.

Didn't he finish school? I thought he did.

I dunno, not according to the article.

Oh this is Norway we're talking about. I've watched some films from Norway, their prison is like a 5 star hotel. Not even exaggerating. They have desks and everything lol.

They have their own way of doing things which is to reform criminals into normal people... I don't think it's right to judge whether what they're doing is right or wrong. It's not like non-Norway prisons are any better...


So, we're going to reward people who murder 77 human beings in cold blood with a higher education? How, regardless of the country, is that right in any way, shape or form?

Doesn't even matter if he's going to be in the classes with others or not. Those people he slaughtered were denied to continue their own lives, yet this creature who happily murdered so many is allowed to do something that they will never be able to?


Not saying I agree with them letting a coldblooded killer study...

But that's how they do things over there... and if it works for them... who am I to judge?

Personally I find this just plain sick I wonder how the families of the people he killed are reacting to this. Only thing I can say is good thing this didn't happen in the US I imagine it will be career suicide for any politician that supports this.

Personally, anyone who commits a mass murder to me should a get death sentence. But since this guy is apparently alive and well, I don't see that it's bad that he's learning, he's still in a cell. Although Norway prisons are like fancy hotels, jeez. But they focus on rehab, which the U.S. needs. I remember in high school, someone wrote a paper on why U.S. prisons should have that, because it's stupid. We're paying for people to just rot in prisons-- pedophiles and murderers (etc.) just sit there and stay the same while they should be getting help. Ugh, the human brain is a complex thing and it sucks sometimes that it is

You ever work with prisoners?

Not in theory, not in class, face to face. One time I was doing a psych eval on a guy that had been released. Wanted money from the government because he couldn't work. Why couldn't he work?

"Because the first time I went to jail for raping a 5 year old. The next time it was for raping a 4 year old."

Told it to me like he was making a comment on the weather. That's rough, going home after that and trying to process it. Guy killed 77 kids. As far as I can say, I'd put him in a sensory deprivation tank and on a drip and maybe check in on him every 5 to 10 years.

Your title was misleading, as is some of your opening post, using phrases like "go to" and "sent to" when in fact the article is very clear that he will be doing independent study from prison, and will not be physically going anywhere; nor will he have direct contact with the instructors or students. Therefore I've modified the thread title slightly.

I can understand that this would still seem wrong to some, but no need to be extra inflammatory in presenting the info.

Personally, I'm in favor of rehabilitation and especially in favor or higher education opportunities being allowed to prisoners, and I find nothing wrong with it in this case either.

ETA: Aaaaand, to everyone posting: Some personal jabs have begun, and I'll be deleting a couple of posts. Please address the issue and don't insult each other.

So, I'm guessing you don't agree with him being allowed to further his education?

I, personally, find it very disturbing how people are supporting this mass murderer in pursuing what he wants to do, despite denying others that very same thing in such a horrific way.

Oh well, at least people are being honest about their opinions.

No I do not. But since is isn't my country, nor my government, I have no say in the subject. All I can comment on is how it doesn't work in our system and how it's a waste of time and money that could be better spent elsewhere. That being said, I also don't support people going to jail for non-violent drug charges, and I think that bankers and stock-market people that trash the economy should share a prison cell with the very same people who seem to enjoy killing and burning people.

Execute him. He does not deserve to have his life anymore, so someone should REALLY take it.
