Mass murderer Anders Breivik complains about ‘inhumane’ temperature of his prison coffee

posted at 2:13 pm on November 9, 2012 by

Ahh, Norway. He murdered 77 people in cold blood, was sentenced to a whopping 21 years, and is now complaining of violations of his human rights:

Anders Behring Breivik, the Norwegian mass killer, has complained about his conditions in prison, with grievances ranging from not being able to keep moisturiser in his cell to the temperature of his coffee.

The complaints are included in a 27-page letter to prison authorities obtained by the Norwegian tabloid VG which was published on Friday and verified by his lawyer…

Breivik said he was not getting enough butter to spread on his bread and that his cell was sparsely decorated and has no view.

He also said that the handcuffs he has to wear when being transferred are razor sharp and “cut into his wrists”.

Other complaints concerned the daily searches of his cell and body searches, for which he had to get undressed, and restrictions placed on his correspondence.

He would also like more recreational and social opportunities.

Thank goodness Breivik at least is not serving his term in this insanely lavish Norweigian prison. Please check out the slide show. But his life ain’t half bad, as Scandinavia prides itself on its prison conditions:

For example, other prisoners at Ila have access to school that offers courses from primary grade to university level courses, a library, a gym, work in the prison’s various shops and other leisure activities. Because Breivik is held in isolation, without contact with other prisoners, he doesn’t have access to those things. In compensation, Ila has given him three cells instead of one. Each is about 86 square feet (8 square meters.) One has gym equipment, another has a bed and the third a desk with a laptop computer. For at least one hour a day, he has access to a small courtyard surrounded by barbed wire.

And nobody immediately punched him in the face?

Norway should be glad Huckabee isn’t on their parole board.

That would be considered rude and the socialists don’t like that. I hope they are enjoying paying for this guy’s comforts.

Welcome to our future.

QUICK! Someone call the UN!

In a liberal, relativist world where everything is equivalent, cold coffee is just as inhumane as murder.

John_Locke on November 9, 2012 at 2:38 PM

Hmm, may have to move to Norway and commit some crimes. Will beat living in the Fascist States of America.

rbj on November 9, 2012 at 2:39 PM

If he whines enough, will he get a nod for a peace prize like Manning?

You beat me to my comment. I would lay down some sick beats in that studio.

Screw Norway. They did it to themselves. Im sure Anders Breivik is laughing his arse off as he makes these whiney claims.

I’d like to bring him two pitchers of boiling hot coffee. One I’d pour over his face, the other I’d pour over his nether regions.

That’s just how much I care.

Well, Norwegians take their coffee seriously. In my father’s Norwegian, the traditional reply to “tak fur sitten” (thanks for visiting) was “tak fur caffien” (thanks for the coffee).

(Spelling is very approximate.)

I remember reading of an incident written of by the late Charles Colson. Colson took a Biblical view of punishment, ie; someone convicted of rape, murder, or kidnapping received a death sentence. Those who committed property crimes were made to make restitution. Colson wrote of visiting a Norwegian prison during a visit to Europe. One of the female guards – Colson’s guide – explained to Colson that when an inmate was approaching his release date, one of the female guards would be assigned to take the inmate on a “date” to help re-introduce the inmate to society. Not long after Colson had returned home he attempted to contact his guide only to learn that when she taken an inmate for a “date”, he raped her, sodomized her, and then murdered her.

Apparently, Norway needs some work on their criminal justice system.

The passengers in the movie Airplane who waited in line to slap the woman should be sent to Norway, to take turns kicking Breivik’s @$$.

Pobrecito.

a little arsenic sweetener will fix that right up.

He is playing them like a Muslim would. They will have to cave.

Guy has a better layout than I do. And a healthier schedule. He even has barbed wire — something I’m not allowed to put up (turns out).

Four stakes, a jar of honey, and a colony of fire-ants.

Some assembly required.

BL@KBIRD on November 9, 2012 at 7:49 PM

Everyone is going to hate me for saying this, but he’s not a dumb guy. This is exactly what he’s doing.

WhatSlushfund on November 9, 2012 at 10:28 PM

So, if you kill one person you should get 3.6 years, right.

BDavis on November 9, 2012 at 11:02 PM

I read a couple of months ago, they were looking for pen pals to be friends with him.

Remember: This is what the left wants for us. No, I am not kidding. The same people advocating against the death penalty, also want to abolish lwop, life sentences, and any sentence over 15-20 years.

Maybe I should travel over there and make him thankful that his body temperature isn’t inhumanely cold.

insanely lavish Norweigian prison. Please check out the slide show

That looks like a really high end prep school.

Recording studio ftw!
