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

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.
