His PS2 games are old? Poor little snowflake! And too childish? What a shame! As an avid gamer, I would prefer Killzone to Ape Escape, but the thing is that mass murderers do not get to choose their gaming systems, or indeed the type of games they get to play. If they did, they would simply sit there, furiously masturbating over their Kill Death ratios, and learning nothing from their incarceration what so ever.
We might not like the Law, we might disagree with it. But I think we can all agree that for the system to work, the Law must be applied according to its very letter.
Surely, a man who has turned totally away from violence, knowing the risk he poses to others and disgusted by himself, would not wish to play games involving the very concepts to which he is addicted? Surely he, unlike a well adjusted mortal, would not be capable of exposing himself to virtual carnage without being reminded of his sin constantly, with every simulated discharge of a pixel framed weapon, with every swing of a computer generated blade, and every wet, sucking noise of a simulated chest wound?

a reply to: SprocketUK I agree with Norways decision . Thats the point of having standards and sticking to them no matter how heinous the crime. It's what separates them from the uncivilised nations in places like the Middle East where they practice torture and kill the likes of breivik.you don't change your wholepenal system based on the nature of the crime.
