This story is kind of neat. It tells about prisons in Norway, and
"their country's long-standing penal philosophy: that traditional, repressive prisons do not work, and that treating prisoners humanely boosts their chances of reintegrating into society."
No fences, no bars. Prisoners grow their own food, cook it, hold barbecues, go to school, go horseback riding, ski.
"People in other countries say that what Norway does is wrong," says Lars, who is serving a 16-year sentence for serious drug offenses. "But why does Norway have the world's lowest murder rate? Maybe we're doing something that really works."
"When you treat people like they're criminals, you'll be right."
