Mass Murderer Sues Over Prison Conditions

It is because of stuff like this that I support the death penalty.

Oslo (AFP) – Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik returns to court on Tuesday to accuse the Norwegian state of violating his human rights by holding him in isolation.

The right-wing extremist is serving 21 years for the murder of 77 people in a bombing and shooting assault in July 2011.

He accuses the Norwegian state of breaching two clauses of the European Convention on Human Rights, one which prohibits “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”, and one which guarantees the right to respect for “private and family life” and “correspondence”.

Since the killings, Breivik, 37, has been held apart from the rest of the prison population and his contacts with the outside world strictly controlled.

His mail is censored by prison officials to prevent him from establishing an “extremist network”, according to authorities, and his visits, which are rare, are almost exclusively with professionals behind a glass partition.

He has previously likened his prison conditions to “torture”.

    It’s punishment for a reason.

    You want real torture…make him watch MSNBC at top volume 24/7.
