Norway killer goes to luxury prison

Norway's unrepentant mass killer, Anders Behring Breivik, is now under arrest. And he should count himself lucky for -- if entirely undeserving of -- a penal system in that country that is among the cushiest in the world. There's no capital punishment, and the longest jail term allowed is 21 years

Prisoners spend a lot of time out of their cells; exercise is encouraged. And in Halden, not only is there clean air but personal trainers.,0

in fairness to Norway

Norway has one of the lowest incarceration rates in Europe at 66 per 100,000 inhabitants,
compared to 738 per 100,000 inhabitants in the U.S.
