I realize the title would be a great headline for a satirical article but I assure you this is a very real story. Anders Behring Breivik is a Norwegian terrorist and mass murderer who sued his country’s government last year for “inhumane treatment” while in confinement despite the fact that he has three cells all to himself which are equipped with pretty much everything a convict could want, including a gym, a study room, books, TV, DVD, and a Playstation 2. To be completely honest he seems to be doing much better than me, however, the man wasn’t satisfied at all and it sounds like one of the reasons he sued the Norwegian government was because of the outdated console. Clearly, the man deserved at least a PS4.
Just to put things into perspective here, we’re talking about a guy who killed 77 people a few years back without remorse and only got a 21-year sentence. Oh, and he’s also a Nazi. I don’t know about you, but I think the Norwegian government went a little too easy on him. They should have given him a PS1 and no games, see how he likes that. In any case, Breivik’s main complaint was related to his isolation and not the PS2 but I just found that particular part extremely ridiculous so there you go.
Just as I was writing this I learned that the court actually ruled in Breivik’s favor moments ago believe it or not and now the government has to pay him the equivalent of 13,900 US dollars. I guess in Norway the terrorists win. The official statement goes something like this (via RT): “The prohibition of inhuman and degrading treatment represents a fundamental value in a democratic society,” judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic said in her ruling. “This applies no matter what – also in the treatment of terrorists and killers.”
