Transcript: Why? They're Criminals Description: Halden Prison is considered one the most human prisons in the world, the poster-child for restorative justice programs across the globe. The jail holds some of Norway’s more heinous criminals and yet has been described by some as being “better than some hotels” There are no bars on windows, rooms are about the size of apartment bedrooms and come with amenities like TV’s, personal toilets and decent beds. The prison resembles a college campus walled off from the rest of the world. “Your whole day is structured around the meals. Without food you’re starving in there. I lost a lot of weight my first week or two, and the food quality is horrible, its just disgusting shit. You don’t know what it is.
