Mass Murderer To Hunger Strike For Better Video Games
Anders Breivik, a Norwegian mass murderer, is threatening a hunger strike to protest “torture”-like prison conditions, including better video games.
The right-wing extremist — who killed 77 people in a bombing and shooting rampage on July 22, 2011 — enclosed a typed list of 12 demands sent to prison authorities in November.
He described as “torture” the conditions in two prisons — Ila near Oslo and Skien in southeast Norway — where he is serving out a 21-year sentence.
The demands include better conditions for his daily walk and the right to communicate more freely with the outside world, which he argues are in line with European rights legislation.
He also demanded the replacement of a PlayStation 2 games console for a more recent PS3 “with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself” as well as a sofa or armchair instead of a “painful” chair.
“Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games. One example is “Rayman Revolution”, a game aimed at three year olds,” wrote the 35-year-old convicted killer.
