JS Online – June 26, 2007 via Overlawyered.com:

Convicted sex offenders in Sweden are free to read pornography in their cells following a court ruling that has angered the prison service.

The Supreme Administrative Court in Stockholm last week ruled that the Swedish Prison and Probation Service had no right to deny a rape convict access to his porn magazines.

Prison officials said they had asked the government to change the law so that they could continue to ban porn magazines at the Nordic nation’s prisons.

“It increases the risk of assault for other interns and it is provocative for personnel,” Elisabeth Kwarnmark, a prison service psychologist, said about the ruling.

    I’ve got no problem with this as long as it’s not provided to sexual offenders.

    1–But that is exactly what it does.

    Not much sense here. Video,web,tv porn is not allowed to anyone but written porn for all. THATS respect for the printed media.

    Oops… I missed that. 😉

    I think interns and personnel can learn to deal with the fallout, just as women do in the rest of society.

    Just for the Republicans: If I can recall, a death metal singer killed a gay guy in Sweden, got 8 years of LOW security prison and managed to make 6 albums before the was set free. Sounds like paradise for the folk from the Heartland.

    5. Isn’t this more of a liberal-inspired punishment?
