Prisons system at US Vs. Norway

Maybe don’t behave like an animal so you won’t be sent to prison?

The goal for imprisoning criminals is for them to stay out after they’ve been released. But, for many countries around the globe, that’s not exactly happening, as most prisoners often get re-arrested within just a few years. The United States alone has 76.6% of its prisoners rearrested within five years.

In Norway, when criminals leave, prison, they’re most likely to stay out. The country boasts a recidivism rate of 20%, one of the lowest in the world.

The country uses a concept called “restorative justice”. The aim here is to not punish criminals, but to repair the harm they’ve caused by rehabilitating them.
