As models of rehabilitation.

In Norway the perpetrator of the 2011 massacre received the maximum sentence of 21 years. If at the end of the sentence he is determined to be a threat to the public detention may be extended 5 years. He may appeal for parole every year. The 5 year extensions can theoretically be for life.

I find it interesting how the worst criminals are treated and how sometimes the worst is wished on lesser offenders.
