I watched an MSNBC prison show that took place in a prison outside of Amsterdam. The cells are like four-star hotel rooms, and the prisoners are given free broadband Internet access, cable television with unblocked porn channels, hashish, and prostitutes of the appropriate gender, race and age. They even have turndown service! TU Delft had a branch there, and prisoners are given a free undergraduate and/or postgraduate education in the field of their choice. Despite a recidivism rate of 98.7%, I think European prisons are so much more rehabilitation oriented and progressive than the dungeons we have in the United States.
