Harsh Imprisonment Norwegian Style

If you thought that the countries formally dominated by the fierce Norsemen has lost their toughness, think again. Apparently the Norwegian government is being unimaginably savage in its treatment of Anders Behring Breivik -- one of the most prolific mass murderers in recent civilian history, who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage (mostly shooting down fleeing teenagers at a youth camp) in 2011.

Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik threatened to go on hunger strike for better video games and other perks to alleviate his "torture"-like prison conditions, in a letter received by AFP Friday.
And from another source:
Norwegian tabloid VG, which said it had acquired a copy of the letter, quoted Breivik as saying he was allowed to use only a soft and bendable safety pen described by its manufacturer as "stab-resistant" because it yields at the slightest pressure and cannot be used as a weapon. Breivik was seen making avid notes with it during his 10-week trial at the Oslo District Court that ended in August.

He has said he wants to write books in prison, but claims the special pen cramps his hand, describing it as "an almost indescribable manifestation of sadism," VG reported.
I hope Amnesty International gets right on this before things get even worse.
