Maximum Security Prisons: US vs Norway

This is totally fascinating. The warden at a maximum security prison in Norway -- the world's most humane max security prison -- goes to Attica.

The deputy warden from the world's most humane maximum security prison, Halden Prison in Norway, goes on a mission to change one of the most notorious prisons in the world – Attica Correctional Facility in New York State. How will the Nordic ideas about dialogue and humanity be received by staff and inmates in Attica?

The documentary producers posted the full piece online, complete with English subtitles (just in case your Norwegian is rusty). You can watch it HERE, but the player uses Flash, so you may not be able to use your regular browser. Downloading a freebie like Puffin will be totally worth it, though. 

If you're a Reddit user, there's a thread there about the documentary. You can find it HERE.
