"Prisoners' human rights violated, Norway court rules"

From The Guardian:

Norway has violated the human rights of other inmates by forcing them to share a wing with the rightwing extremist Anders Breivik, thereby exposing them to inhuman and degrading treatment during their imprisonment, a Norwegian court has ruled.

Prisoners forced to share space with odious shit Breivik, who killed 77 people in July 2011 in the country’s worst acts of violence since the second world war, took the Norwegian authorities to court last month, requesting that he be kept in solitary confinement so that they would not be constantly confronted by his smug Nazi face and crazed speeches.

At their request, Breivik will now be detained in a separate three-cell complex where he can play video games, watch TV and exercise, judge Helen Andenaes Sekulic of the Oslo district court ruled.

"Breivik, ....complained about the quality of the prison food – including microwaved meals that he described as “worse than water-boarding”

Ah, diddums. He should have tried eating the food at my school then.

In contrast, it's perfectly OK to force prisoners to share space with Muslims who use some pretty coercive tactics to convert fellow inmates to Islam.
