Cushy Norwegian Prison
When I first started reading this article, I was a bit sick to my stomach. After all, I'm an American....instead of allowing murderers, rapists and dope slingers to attend cooking classes in prison, I feel like we should be making prison such an awful environment that convicts never wanna go back. But I kept reading, and I saw that Norway's recividism rate (that percentage of inmates who are incarcerated within 2 years of their release) is a mere 20% (as opposed to the 50-60% in America). What the hell? Is the awful food and constant threat of forced sodomy not working in America's criminal justice system? Should we be giving these dudes hugs, fluffy pillows and Dom Perignon?
There's plenty of enthusiasm for transforming lives. "None of us were forced to work here. We chose to," says Charlott-Renee Sandvik Clasen, a music teacher in the prison and a member of Halden's security-guard chorus. "Our goal is to give all the prisoners — we call them our pupils — a meaningful life inside these walls."
Pupils?!?!?!? You seriously gotta be F-ing kidding me.....

Sounds like this place: http://officerresource.com/forums/f4/lock-me-up-34770/
I suspect that the recidivism rate there has more to do with their culture. I can't imagine putting gang bangers in a place like that and lowering recidivism...That which does not kill me, better start fucking running.
