Norwegian killer Anders Breivik is displeased with his “torture”-like conditions in jail and is threatening to go on a hunger strike unless the prison officials improve his PlayStation situation.
Breivik, who killed 77 people, most of them children at a Youth camp in 2011, is currently serving out his 21-year sentence – the maximum you can get in Norway. Sick of his “torturous conditions”, the right-wing extremist wrote a letter prison authorities back in November demanding more luxuries.
Included in Breivik’s list of 12 demands were better conditions for his daily walk, an end to daily physical searches, the right to communicate more freely with the outside world, the doubling of his weekly allowance ($49) to pay for postage stamps, and the right to PlayStation 3. You know, basic human rights.
Breivik argued that he should have the right to a wider “selection of activities” than other inmates to compensate for his strict isolation. Therefore, all of his PlayStation 2 games consoles should be upgraded to a Playstation 3 “with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself”.
“Other inmates have access to video games for adults while I can only play the less interesting children video games. One example is ‘Rayman Revolution,’ a game designed for 3-year-olds,” the 35-year-old killer wrote.
Life is so unfair. But considering the serial killer admitted he played the game “Call of Duty” to train himself for the mass shooting at the youth group camp, maybe adult video games are not the best choice.
Breivik also complained that his chair is “painful,” and requested a more comfortable sofa or armchair as well as a PC instead of his “worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873.” Who does he think he is, Mariah Carey? What a diva.
Anyways, the months came and went and Breivik quickly realized that his demands were not going to be met. Time for a hunger strike!
In the letter dated January 29, Breivik wrote that since there has not been any real improvement in his prison conditions, a hunger strike would be “one of the only” options he had.
“You’ve put me in hell … and I won’t manage to survive that long. You are killing me,” he wrote, brandishing the threat of a hunger strike.
“The hunger strike won’t end until the Minister of Justice [Anders] Anundsen and the head of the KDI [the Norwegian Correctional Services] stop treating me worse than an animal,” he said.
Yeah, even animals get PlayStation 3 – if not 4! And here I thought Norway was soft on crime. Finally, the truth comes out!
