US Prison Chief's Mind Blown By Norway's Treatment Of Inmates

Оценок: 6542 | Просмотров: 233744
"Halden is situated in a remote forest of birch, pine, and spruce with an understory of blueberry shrubs. The prison is surrounded by a single wall. It has no barbed wire, guard towers, or electric fences. Prisoners stay in private rooms with en suite bathrooms and can cook for themselves in kitchens equipped with stainless-steel flatware and porcelain dishes. Guards and inmates mingle freely, eating and playing games and sports together. Violence is rare and assaults on guards are unheard of. Solitary confinement is almost never used. By this point, Bertsch had been in charge of North Dakota’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, which includes four adult prisons and one juvenile facility, for more than a decade, and Jackson had spent seven years as director of correctional practices. They’d left Bismarck feeling pretty good about their system, which prided itself on its humane practices and commitment to rehabilitation. But now, sitting in the glassed-in bar of the Radisson hotel with its view of the Oslo fjord, Bertsch began to cry. “We’re hurting people,” she said."* Read more here: http://www.motherjones.com/crime-justice/2017/07/north-dakota-norway-prisons-experiment/ Follow Jimmy Dore on Twitter: http://twitter.com/jimmy_dore Follow Steve Oh on Twitter: https://twitter.com/stevenoh88 Follow Malcolm Fleschner on Twitter: https://twitter.com/CultureShlock Follow Ron Placone on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RonPlacone

I mentioned they should allow voting in prisons on FB and this guy about shit his pants. He was like "what's next?! Let them watch HBO on tv?" Americans are dismayed at actually treating prisoners like humans. Seriously. I saw a documentary about an American prison and the inmates are forced to use their toilet in their barred cell, and the only thing they can do is cover the bottom half of the bars with a towel or blanket. So people passing by could totally look in at people using the toilet. In that same documentary they were talking about how the food rations are really pathetic as well.

Don't be fooled. Their crime rate is like 1/10th of what we have yet their recidivism is like only 1/3rd of ours. This is because violent crime is less common here wheras it's very common here, hence the higher recidivism here. We have lots of savages treated like savages and they have very few savages and all treated like queens. Justice needs a punitive and rehabilitative component. Norway lacks the punitive and rewards rapes/murders with luxury and no need to toil to live wheras we lack the rehabilitative further hardening people that may have never been cold monsters as well as the savages when they could be tamed.

What has being locked into solitary for year after year to do with rehabilitation ? i mean, if the goal is to teach and rehabilitate you clearly dont go about that way... If the goal is to make them suffer, payfor their crime over and over and over .. then I geuss, gathering a mob and just stone them to death would do the trick

Americans are stupid how do they think people can work in a society if they are badly treated? In prison, the prisoners will receive education and learn humanity. What politicians and judges forget in the usa is that prisoners return to society. No one thinks about the consequences of the treatment they have been exposed to. In Norway everyone gets a new chance. My neighbor has been in prison for 4 years, but I do not see him as a criminal I see him as a human being. The United States is the richest underprivileged country in the world

Each prison needs one box of bullets a week. They must shoot prisoners until the box is empty. Repeat until the prison is empty. Then send the guards home. Start at white collar prisons where the wealthy reside. In a few years this will be a peaceful society where prisons are not needed. I am a Democrat who voted for Hillary. Trump is a moron and destroying our country. Lock him up! Along with the traitors that elected him in the electoral college.

Blacks commit crimes against other black people something like 90% of the time. Whites are less racist in that we commit crimes against every group including our own. When a black person commits a crime they net an average of $1,200. When a white person commits a crime they net an average of $27,000. We are better criminals. ;) (no numbers were harmed in the creation of my post)

I don't think the US government WANTS to reduce crime. They are more interested in $$$$. We are one of, if not THE WORST, in the world, as far as incarceration. We have our stupid war on drugs that's been failing for 40 years; we still criminalize drugs; and it's set up so most people end up coming back to prison. And we have our private prisons that make tons of money for investors.

Not as a country, but on an individual level. The country as a whole actually loses from not having people being rehabilitated and working in more productive capacities - but companies involved in what should not be an "industry" and politicians getting kickbacks from them benefit from playing off peoples' fears and keeping things as they are.

Prison should be a place to rehab prisoners, not to punish, but to show them where they went wrong and correct it. Punishment solves nothing, and teaches less.

American's are too ignorant to understand that prisons for profit is a bad idea.
Retro Destiny (6 месяцев назад)
piggs prisons were invented with the thought of rehabilitation. They loose their freedom but can regain that freedom when they have been rehabilitated. In Norway we let prisoners get multiple chances, even if they did something really bad. You may think this is a bad way to keep a society but please. Explain to me why we are in top 10 happiest countries and one of the countries with the least amount of inmates returning to prison after being released.

in norway max sentance is 21 years.( we do have ways to prolong it, but only if the man/woman is still a threat to the people around them)
catsintexas (8 месяцев назад)
on other hand, "Bert wesley McLeod" is right about some things. Look, these men have to come to grips with the evil that they did. They do have to have punishment. Why? Because this not just about rehabilitating people. Its about maintaining a safe society and if you show future criminals that you are not going to punish them hard, they will not fear the Law or jails. yes, there has to be more humanity and rehabilitation. But you must also show justice and compassion FOR THE VICTIMS by not "spoiling rotten" the jailed convicts. WHAT MCLEOD DOES NOT understand, is that it is still STILL too expensive to house all these prisoners AND WHEN RELEASED they still do more crimes and get re arrested. SO ITS ISN'T WORKING Mcleod
Retro Destiny (6 месяцев назад)
Eh what? You haven't looked up sources. Norway has one of the lowest inmate returning to prison rates in the world. Therefore it's less expensive and it's also working. Just find some actual sources next time you try to make a comment based on facts.
D Goshay (8 месяцев назад)
They recitivate because there are additional oppressive laws put in place to prevents them from getting jobs or housing. So, they are punished beyond just the prisons. Being in prisons alone, without the additional punishment is punishment enough, especially when you're talking about non violent offenders.

+Retro Destiny When people are treated humanely, as in having the freedom to entertain themselves behind walls, you have less frustration and violence in the prison.

The Norwegian model: They can't go any further than the walls which surround them. They can't go on holiday, pop to the shops, or go to the pub for a drink with their friends. They can't watch their kids grow up and learn, day by day, or be there to help an elderly parent. That is their punishment. The American Model: All the above, plus: Putting people in cages; denying them privacy, even when on the toilet or taking a shower; making them sleep on uncomfortable beds; feeding them crap food; forcing them to do mundane jobs for pennies to buy 'luxuries', like food and soap; isolating them for infractions; making them wear 'prison clothes' etc. All of this is torture. It is inhumane treatment. So, you either want the Norwegian model, or you want to torture and dehumanise people. It's either or.
Bert Wesley McLeod (7 месяцев назад)
Anonymous Yes, prisoners ought to be rehabilitated. Yes, they should be treated humanely. But at the same time, if you commit a violent crime, you ought to face punishment- not just rehabilitation. Whats so outrageous about that?

Well, if these guys insist on trying to change the system they are going to get drop-kicked by the corporations that own these prisons because they need to keep the prison populations up, hence the recidivism and ridiculous last to get people in the system in the first place, because they need cheap labour. While it's true that American jobs are in other countries, most Americans don't realize how many of their jobs are actually being done by cheap prison labour right here at home. For instance the immense textile business, just to name one...

Lower rate than here, because we have the HIGHEST RATE worldwide, I believe. But their success rate is MUCH HIGHER than ours. Went to look up - apparently, our incarceration rate is almost TEN TIMES that of Norway, and our recidivism rate is almost 70% (people who go back to jail because they commit another crime) while theirs is stunningly low at about 20%.

Guy Fawkes..........What you just said there is profound and very, very true. I was born here in the USA and it's even MORE that way than you can even imagine. People here in this country really don't feel like their lives have any meaning and you can clearly see that in their faces, how they interact with each other and especially what their apparent values are. It's all about "me" and "mine" and there's practically no real community here. The general consensus in our culture tends to be that they couldn't care less if you get run over by a truck as long as they get what the want for themselves. This is literally true as CCTV has often captured instances where someone will get run over by a car in broad daylight with plenty of bystanders who do nothing and just go about their daily "lives" while the person bleeds to death on the street. I know your culture isn't perfect but it is an entirely different dimension of reality from ours and our culture is in DESPERATE need of learning all it can from yours.

+Nathan Andrew Davis There are some types that just can't be helped. The maximum sentence a person can get in Norway, I believe, is 22 years. At the end of the sentence the person would get a review and if the prison thinks they are still a danger to society they can add 5 year increments. And they can keep adding 5 year increments if they need to. Also, this type of system where the maximum sentence is 22 years can also help if an innocent person is sentenced. If you were innocent and convicted of something you didn't do would you rather spend 22 years in prison or life or executed?

Well, there is a prison near me and I do see jobs there. I haven't seen volunteer opportunities yet. I know the state next to me, New Jersey, is really into prison reform. I hope when I am no longer a recent college grad trying to figure his life out, I could seize more chances to help.

I feel the need to tell you that the only way anything will ever get any better for you is by releasing the fear and hate that you have within yourself and allowing love to come into your consciousness (soul.) Otherwise your experiences in this physical dimension of "reality" are only going to get worse, bringing you more and more suffering in this life and beyond until you choose to let go.

I absolutely would love to see reform of our prison system. However I ultimately think that it is a huge difference in culture that needs to occur here in the U.S. in order for these sort of reforms to be tenable. But I believe that we can and need to make changes in our justice system to allow prisoners to be treated with dignity and respect, and a working system that rehabilitates, not tears people down and leaves them unable to function in everyday society. We need to invest as a country in education and rehabilitation. Not build walls and prisons.

Funny. I can say with 100% certainty that you're 100% overconfident. Most quality of life studies don't even place the United States in the top 10 (while Canada sometimes earns a spot there). From personal experience, I'm inclined to agree. I spent between one and two months out of every year in Israel up until I was 13 and the quality of life there - extreme racism (and related religious bigotry e.g. marriage laws) and national belligerence aside (these two points are why I refuse to move there) - was, hands down, far better than it is here. Israel has severe issues, and you certainly don't want to draw the short straw there - but you have to ignore the same things to rate this country well and it simply doesn't compare at that point. That you see conservatives as pro-freedom and progressives as pro-control is laughable. There are a lot of control related undertones in progressive ideology (in the name of other things; it's like a necessary evil to them) but to make it so simple can only be the result of blindness, willful or not. The whole idea of getting money out of politics is to reduce the level of control companies have over public policy. Surely that should matter to you, since you want freedom. Instead, you choose to reframe something like that as the opposite of what it is - something smells fishy here.

Anonymous...after living for 5 years abroad, I can say with certainty that America is 100% better than every other country. Mostly due to things these idiots complain about. "If TYT was a program that was filmed elsewhere in the world, they'd be preaching to the choir on subjects such as these." - yes, but then we'd call them propogandists, which is what they are. Certainly I can see problems, that's the easy part. Both parties see problems. The issue is how to fix them. One party is for freedom, the other for control. TYT is firmly in the camp of government control. Nothing says I like government control more than "Wolf Pack wants to end government corruption (money in politics) by petitioning the government to stop itself"
Anonymous (7 месяцев назад)
Bit of irony there, Tylr. But, honestly, they aren't buying anything. The rest of the world isn't quite as indoctrinated about America as americans are. If TYT was a program that was filmed elsewhere in the world, they'd be preaching to the choir on subjects such as these. You know how Americans go on about how horrible it is in North Korea and how all the extreme indoctrination there is messed up? It isn't anywhere close to the same level, but we have some of that blind leading the blind shit going on here and now, and people inside this country have a much harder time seeing it than people who aren't pressured to see it in a positive light...

As for the subject of the video, of course you get farther with kindness.  Didn't we already know this from the "isn't torture kewl??" nonsense of '06, when the interrogators from WWII came forward to talk about how they got more info by giving a prisoner cigarettes than anything else, no screaming, no threats, none of that.  R-E-S-P-E-C-T!  That's what does it.

U.S. prisoners in general are much more hardcore than their Norwegian counterparts. It would be cool to do a prisoner exchange, see how it plays out. Send them some AB, MS13, Bloods, Mexicans etc and they send their gangbangers. Even do a documentary about it. It will make for some very interesting viewing.

elementalsigil I used to work in the prison system as a nurse. I traveled from minimum-maximum security. Most prisoners in maximum security had prior charges before ending in max. The behavior and treatment of the prisoners in all of the prisons was awful. I had an officer tell me NOT to be nice to a prisoner because they didn’t deserve it. I also had experiences were when I did assessments due to prisoner complaints and officers told me that I shouldn’t bother because the prisoner was malingering. Don’t you think if we tried rehab instead of punishment that thing may be better? Maybe we could start treating them like humans and not just a number? I know that almost every contact I had with a prisoner was positive, I’m sure that wasn’t just because I was the nurse. I’m not saying that everyone treats prisoners terribly, but the system certainly does.

Yes I am pretty sure for the most part it will; but there's still that percentage that it might or will not work for (meaning like psychopathic serial killers such as Charles Mason [even though he never really kill anybody by himself but he did hire people to do the work for him] or even Jack the Ripper).

Um this would never work in here. Maybe for the petty crime offenders. But it's too many gangs here.

As a corrections officer I too want the inmates to succeed in society and not come back. There is so much more to reforming a criminal than their time in jail. They have a different mindset that is ingrained fairly deeply from many years of bad environment, poor decisions and impulsive actions. Some people only change with time and the victim in many instances is dead with a grieving family. It is an insult to them to give the offender such leeway.

Prison is for CORRECTIONS and REHABILITATION. Shouldn't prison be an example of how people should be treated? The taking away of the freedom of every day life is the punishment. In every group of offenders there ARE people that are rehabilitatable. Some people have the opinion that if you commit a certain offense you are unworthy or you aren't rehabilitatable. That's simply not true. There have been murderers who killed and later either their victims or the victims families have forgiven them and gotten them released early from prison. And those murderers didn't kill again. Now I'm not saying release whoever, but there are people who can be rehabilitated and give back to their communities and tell their stories and try and prevent others from following in their footsteps.

American "design" in prisons is propagated by the media, most  especially Hollywood. Religion plays a huge roll in promoting punishment (after all, God's going to punish us) in creating the values our society was to hopefully be protected against by the concept and law for the separation of church and state. This problem of creating retribution against "convicts" is not new in the history of people.

However, I only ask for one acception pedophiles and rapists be executed they know what they’re doing and actually plan out how they’re going to do it which is worse. People ask what about chemical castration would that solve the problem and the thing is there are men out there today who’ve had visectimies (not sure if it’s spelled right), which is the same thing with the difference being that one is chemical and the other is surgical, having sex, getting hard on’s and all that with only to have the result being that they cannot reproduce and that’s it. I’d much prefer a .22 bullet to their head as no one should have to be afraid of their children or even they themselves getting raped

The prison system produce criminals. Example: Just imagine you have a man down on his luck and decide to sell weed to make ends meet. Keep in mind at this point he is not a hardcore criminal. At this point he is selling a little weed to his friends and family. He get locked up and is sent to the correctional facility. If he get a job in prison he is more likely to work forty hours for ten dollars. When he go to the store in prison he is going to notice the products he purchased as a free man is much higher than normal. My point is the correctional facilities dont make an effort to correct anyone. They clearly take advantage of inmates. Criminals can't correct criminals. You dont teach a man not to steal by robbing him. In a nutshell you are teaching criminals that the strong will always take advantage of weaker people

The guy cannot pay his ticket and end up in prison. From your point of view, he should be beaten and starved ? For what ? For being homeless and not having any money ?

From murderers to weed smokers. They were all treated the same : inhumanely. you also have the people who were wrongly convicted in there. I remember, one person got murdered because he ate a bag of chips that he thought was his. But it wasnt, it belonged to a guy who was in prison for murder, and the person who was killed was some dude who was selling marijuana. You dont seem to know much about prison, the way you talk.

You say some are just assholes but they are all people, whatever plagues them is not inherent and can be helped. Norway's total lack of repeat offenders of even the worst crimes proves anyone can change and everyone can be helped. Case by case basis is necessary but prison and punishment is the problem.
