- Should prisons be humane 


On Friday, I told you about the case of Mr. Breivik in Norway, who killed 69 people in Norway with a bomb and guns.

This man committed horrible crimes, and as such is in prison. However, recently he took the Norwegian government to court over his imprisonment being 'inhumane' as he was kept in solitary confinement and other parts of his treatment in prison (Click here for a wikipedia link to read about the case).

But my question to you all is; 

Should prisons be humane?

Especially in the cases of extreme crimes such as the aforementioned Norwegian.

While I don't mean prisons should be torture and violence, my point is prison should be a punishment, and a horrible place to be. It should not be comfortable and happiness for those who have committed crimes.

If you think they should be more humane, why do you think that way?


Let's talk about that.

 - Nazi hunters - 


So in WW2 there were some bad guys called Nazis. You probably knew that already though. At the end of WW2 the Nazis that were caught were either imprisoned or executed. However, a certain amount of Nazis managed to escape and fled to hiding places all over the world.

These days, there are people who are still dedicated to hunting down those who escaped and bringing them to justice.

While I understand that these people did terrible things, they were Nazis and were part of a horrible regime, but now we're in the year 2017, the war ended in 1945 and those Nazis that escaped may or may not still be alive, and if they are, they are probably in their late 90's (96+ years old).

Is it still worth the time, money and effort to put these old people (who are most likely not going to live much longer anyway), in jail for their crimes during WW2?


If you think it's still worth the time and effort, why do you think that? 


Let's talk about that.
