There is no death penalty and life sentences here. Nor are there barbed wire or electric fences. Looking more like a commercial for Ikea, accented with minimalist furniture for your dorm cell, many even come fully equipped with flat screen tv and mini fridge.

Oh, there is no guard towers either, but they do roam the art decoed halls with a baton.

There is even a survey/questionnaire regarding how you rate your prison stay.

It’s been called a prison utopia and would put America’s club fed to shame.

Prisoners have a healthy existence in mind and body, however, are unable to leave. After all, this is punishment, and you are in prison.

Rough Life

In understanding the transition process, the prison works with government agencies to secure employment and a stable environment for an offender to go home to, before they even leave.

An offender is trained, taught skills, and given counsel, in order to (seamlessly) reintegrate back into society. All a major contributing force in the reduction of recidivism.

The setting purposely mimics life and reality outside prison walls, rather than inside for the mental impact it plays.

I have not been to Halden, nor do I care to attend, however from what I have read and the pics I’ve seen, I am jealous it looks better than my home.

Educate yourself on your situation, because nobody will do it for you. Stay well and out of trouble.
