I sometimes wonder about the contact prisoners are allowed with the outside world. Maybe if there were chain gangs and convicts hammering rocks they wouldn’t have time to fool with such things.
Check it out:
Convicted Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik has threatened to go on a hunger strike unless he gets access to better video games, a sofa and a larger gym.
In a letter sent to The Associated Press and other media, Breivik writes that the hunger strike would continue until his demands are met or he dies.
Breivik’s lawyer Tord Jordet confirmed Tuesday that the letter was authentic and said his client was waiting for a response from prison authorities on 12 demands before deciding whether to begin a hunger strike sometime during the next eight weeks.
Karl Hillesland, acting director of Skien Prison, one of the prisons where Breivik is serving his sentence, said “nobody is on hunger strike,” adding that he would not comment on individual prisoners, in line with prison policy.
