Incredible punishment for the modern criminal
Traditional incarceration for current offenders is considered to be obsolete. Lately in some States, began to appear new, rather unusual methods of punishment of people who violate the law. Let’s pay attention to the five strange punishment faced by criminals in different parts of the world.
Norwegian prison conditions
According to the Norwegian authorities, prison should punish criminals, and to fix them, forever fighting off the desire to even think about committing a crime. That is why the correctional services of Norway to help the confused sheep» to find himself. One of such prisons is considered Bastoy Prison.
Prison conditions equate to a sanatorium. Bastoy Prison is located on a separate island and more like a small village than a prison. Prisoners live in small houses, each can move freely in the territory and engage in favorite things.
However, each criminal is obliged to perform certain work. The village is very valued physical labor. Here the prisoners are fed only Breakfast and other foods they make themselves, and prepare it yourself. The ingredients can be purchased in the prison shops to earn money.
In the Norwegian prison, get the prisoners, who left a few years before the end of the term. In these unusual conditions of stay of prisoners prepare for life outside prison, including earning money by honest labor.
Despite the traditional order in some countries there are severe punishments for the offences. For example, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to modern criminals use mirror punishment. To experience a similar system had Ali al-Jawahir. He stabbed his friend a knife in the back. The victim survived, but is permanently disabled, as was a spinal injury.
According to the court, the offender must pay the victim a lot of money. If you do this does not work, it purposefully paralyze surgically. This method of punishment causes the offender to feel the same, I had to go through the victim.
Prison power station
In Brazil, there is a way to make criminals useful to society. In 2012 the first year in a prison in Santa Rita do Sapucaí is a lot of experience. Detainees will be able to produce electricity, they pedal the bike, forcing to rotate the Dynamo.
Criminals three times in a week can take part in this experiment. During one shift, the total time to be served is taken away one day. It should be noted that these bicycles are located in the fresh air, but other criminals almost all the time spend in naprestolnyh cameras.
This method is impossible to produce large amounts of energy. The prison supplies energy only 10 lights on the streets. Every day the number of those wishing to participate in the program increases. Some prisoners even deliberately trying to get here to participate in the experiment, thereby reducing the duration of the sentence.
Total control in Chinese prisons
On the work of prisoners in China there are a lot of creepy legends. According to the adherents of the system Panaligan in prison, offenders are temporarily removed from the bodies. There are other horror stories that occur in correctional facilities. It is worth noting that to be in prison and endure all the bullying may even very well-known people.
One such example was the arrest in 2011 of the famous artist AI Weiwei. Throughout the sentence the man was under the hood of the system of total control.
The artist was constantly deputed two officers, therefore, the prison administration was defending himself from possible extraordinary things. The prisoner is not left alone even in the toilet.
Despite that AI Weiwei to break failed, on the contrary, after he retired, the world saw a series of art installations which tell about the life in prison.
Redemption through reading
The penal system of Brazil suggests another unusual program. In some penal institutions since 2012, the experiment is carried out «Redemption through reading». The primary objective of this program is to get the criminals to seek a better life through reading.
For every read a book the length of stay in prison is shortened by 4 days. For the year accounted for no more than 12 books. The prisoners was not limited to the genre of the book. Count as romance novels, detective stories, and philosophical, scientific and historical books.
One reading the literature for reducing the period of stay is insufficient, the offender must write a short essay. Based on the work of the special Commission decides whether prisoners reduce prison term.
