If The Prison Like a Hotel

If you have read my hub about The Most Luxurious Prison in the World, this time I’ll share about another prison which has the same style. I thought the prison in Norway is the most luxurious prison in the world, but I am totally wrong. Because there is another prison which is like a hotel and it has the same luxurious with the prison in Norway. If you visit my hub about the luxurious prison in Norway, We can see a lot comment over there. Some people said that prison is a prison, regardless how beautiful and luxurious this prison. Even this prison is beautiful and complete with luxurious facilities, but the inmates still locked inside the prison. They will spent their day and pass over for days, weeks, months, and even years...it doesn’t matter how nice it is...it’s still jail.

In other hand, another opinion said that why we don’t give their second chance, most of people said that they don’t deserve a second chance although it has positive purpose, like to educated them. From many sources I read around the internet, kind of this prison has another goal as the rehabilitation center. They train the inmates with good education and dig their special skill with various training program. Whatever we do to make prisons more effective will be well worth the cost. Of course, we all agree that kind of this prison spend a lot of money. Other opinion said that prisons should be humane environments though they have a big mistake but they still a human, they have rights to life. But there is a big question, how about the inmates who have killed someone or even more. Do they deserve these facilities? Did they given a second chance? I can’t answer this question. All the answer is depend on the judge in the court. Maybe some of us thought that they have tough and work over 60 hours in a week than spend the time to watching TV, lifting weights, and sitting around the yard. We may never forgive them, if you are criminal and will be a criminal for the rest of your life.

When people commit crime, they need to know their rights will be lost as the consequence of their actions. They have commit to make a changes during they spend their time in the prison, so they will not end up in prison again. Kind of punishment they get will depend on their mistake in front of the judge. Do they have a plan to correct their behavior? It back to them. How they spend their time in prison with positive activity and they really want to change their bad behavior.


A little about Justice Center Leoben

Let’s back to the topic. This time I want to share about other luxurious prison. That’s why I choose this title. Justice Center Leoben is like a hotel. We will not find a dirty prison, haunted and inhuman in this place. This prison was located in Steiemark, Austria. Personally, the first time I saw the picture of this prison I say WOW. Unbelievable, there’s a prison like this. Justice Center Leoben is not only as a prison, but this place also operated as a court. So this place is a court and prison complex. Justice Center Leoben was designed by Josef Hohensinn, which was completed in November 2004. With 205 inmates, this prison was already fully charged. Josef said that, “this all not about the money, if we talk luxurious. But How to make buildings as the most comfortable place to live”. I thought this is an architect's idealism.


Josef Hohensinn

Josef Hohensinn made the design of this prison with high layout concept that meets the highest standards of Austria. He also made this prison with the purpose all the inmates free to move in every cell and they can get fresh air. There is beautiful yard inside this prison complete with the winding concrete as a place to sit, it looks artistic and green. Josef also placed colorful sofa as a great interior element. So inmates can relax while enjoying the view from behind a glass window. From outside we can see that this prison was built with lots of glass.

Source

We can see these two quotes around the prison. The first quote is "all human were born free and equal in dignity and rights". The second quotes is "every person deprived of liberty, should be treated with humanity and inherent dignity of the human being must be treated honorably". The two sentences are taken from international treaties on civil and political rights. Maybe these quotes as the reason why this prison was built.

The last word from me, I do not support the construction of this prison, but I share the fact about what happen outside and there is other luxurious prison like a five star hotel. Let's discuss this topic together. I really accepted what your thinking about this prison. Agree or disagree you all accepted here. I believe there are pros and cons comment. This is naturally happen if we saw this prison based our opinion or our knowledge. But I hope we can think positively.

Please enjoy this hub.....Thank you very much!

Hi Prasetio, you always present us the unique articles to us and make us open the eyes that there are many things out there we never imagine before. I think with this kind of lux prison, many prisoners wouldn't mind to live in :) Nice hub Prasetio. Good job and vote up !

As always a real pleasure and delight as I await what surprise hub you have next for us my friend.

I really enjoyed reading this one. It was very thought-provoking and surely you should get a mountain of comments on this one!

I think that prisons should be simple, clean, safe, and well managed institutions with enough facilities to ensure that basic services are provided for its imprisoned occupants. As much as I admire the architect's vision and exemplary design I must admit that this is too much for a place where people have committed crimes against others. Is it fair that people who have committed crimes, sometimes petty or life-taking, have the right to live like this when so many people may be homeless, or living in worse conditions and yet those who commit crimes are afforded a life of relative luxury. This sends out the message that crime pays, even though certain liberties and freedom maybe deprived. I think many prisoners would enjoy being 'imprisoned' in there - Prison is not a place for enjoyment. One is there to do their time, to correct themselves and hopefully then be released back into society when they will not be a threat to society.

Enough said and thanks for sharing this my friend.

God bless you Prasetio - An excellent hub as always!

Welcome to this hub, richtwf. Like you said before, I hope I can get a mountains of comment. But behind all this things, I want to knock our awareness about something substantial like this prison. This is special prison, it isn't like other prison where it can load thousands of inmates. In other side this is like unacceptable for the people who hurt others by their crime. Actually I can't understand why the government spend a lot of money to create such of this prison. I thought they get rich investor. This is like the first class service for inmates. Of course they will enjoy to live in this place. But I hope they be a good person and their life will useful to others after out from this prison. Thank you very much. Have a nice day, Buddy.

The photos of the glass structures in this prison look much like expensive condos built in resort areas. I can envision desperate people living in very poor circumstances who might commit crimes in order to get into such a prison.

Yes, prasetio, I believe prisoners should be treated humanely but coddling them in luxurious surroundings is not my idea of justice. What about the people whose lives or property they may have taken?

On a happier note, may I wish you and yours the happiest of holidays and a Happy New Year! :)

Thanks, carrie450 for share your thought about this topic. You have strong point. I hope with pros and cons comment make this hub is become more interesting to discussed. This is also a big question for me, why the Government invest their money to make this prison. While in out there, we can see many people suffer or even dying without getting any food. While the inmates who hurt others get luxury facilities. But let it happen as the spice of life. Take care! ~prasetio

I think this is to nice. I know people who work hard every day and don't have places this nice. Clean and safe is all prison should be. It is punishment not reward. The money should be spent on rehabilitation of the person so, if or when they get out they don't commit crime again. Thanks for the info, you never disappoint!

Prasetio, I don't know how you find so many interesting topics to write about but I do not think prisoners should have a plush environment to serve out there sentence, especially violent offenders. I think a clean, secure, safe environment with limited privileges is appropriate. I imagine some of the prisoners in this prison have it better in prison than they did at home.

I agree that prisoners should be treated humanely but this is more like pampering criminals while so many live in squalid habitats.The only thing missing in this prison is a swimming pool / jacuzzi and a sauna.On a lighter side,I wonder if you could tell us if any prisoners here ever tried to escape.:))

I can catch what you mean above. It probably would attract other people doing criminal and put them in this prison. I thought the government also smart to see this phenomena when this would really happen. I thought not all the criminals in Austria being jailed in this place. I thought this is a special prison for special case. Thank you very much. Have a nice day!

Good morning, Mentalist acer. This is a good idea from you. Of course, they must separate the inmates based on their crime. Thieves can not be placed a single cell with a murderer.

Great hub Nephew! I can hardly have an opinion. Our "leaders" are creating impossible worlds. Our courts in the US are so horrible and "justice" is a joke. US lawyers have their own ATM machine called the US Justice System. We have "white collar criminals" who go to country clubs where tennis is actually played. We have "selective" imprisoning here. I'm all for the wicked to receive their just punishment. But often innocent people are put in hell holes here.

In case of the Mitchell County jail fire, men were imprisoned in a dank fire trap unfit for human habitation.

It was a fire trap where 8 men died from a fire. Some were there for very minor offenses.

The fact is - many commenting here don't have a clue about our "injustice system" or some of the filthy traps where people are kept.

I'd rather see this extreme of care vs the inhumanity that our courts and the stupid US "system" and others promote. Most criminals are on the outside leading our country. God bless Prasetio!

The most luxurious "prison" I've heard of is where Marco Polo was placed on his return from China to Venice; the penthouse of a luxury hotel, with nothing wanting because his family had jewels to pay, stolen from Kubla Khan.There he met a scribe exiled from England. They wrote the history of the Polo family trip to, their 24 years in Khan's court and their trip back to Italy. Polo's diary describes the prison. See my SILK - THE THREAD THAT FED THE GOLDEN HORDE.

My uncle, I thought we all know to make kind of Justice Center Leoben need big cost. That's why I want to share this to us about something we should to know about "luxury jail". Personally I can't get any information about type of prisoners who have been jailed in this place. To make such of "Justice Center Leoben" need a sense of humanity. Thank you very much my uncle.

It's hard to say how their prison system works without knowing about their culture. We do know that the Scandinavian countries have a very liberal, forward thinking society so maybe they get more positive results this way. There must be some statistics about reoffending and i know just the man to get on the case. Detective Prasetio. Cheers and happy hunting.

Well, the benefits of luxurious prisons are legio if it goes hand in hand with educational and personality-development programs. Living in such a beautiful prison will allow a person to experience the feeling of dignity he will experience in his life (outside of prison) if he rises above his circumstances and the environment that motivates him to be a criminal. But keep in mind that criminals do not all come from the ghettos and the gutters.

Personally I don’t like the word ‘rights’ in human rights. Living is a privilege and not a right, according to my common sense. If one does not appreciate the privilege of living on this beautiful planet, or if one does not respect his fellowman and his privileges, one does not deserve to enjoy a day or more in a luxurious prison. But of course, it is also a privilege to get a second chance, and a luxurious prison may be regarded as such. But now what about the third chance? For those who prefer living like parasites of hardworking people and tax payers should surely be regarded as (jail)birds with different feathers?

Great hub, prasetio. Voted UP.

Yes , yes yes, criminals in general are treated too well right acrossed the board. In general there is no punishment for crime anymore. In America , criminal justice is a joke, Juries are becoming usless in punishing repeat offenders , judges have agendas blinding their ability to see clearly, Judges and attorneys are in it for the $.

Pras, This is really mind boggling. I don't know what to make of it. It's hard for me to grasp the need for such prisons and think the inmates should indeed pay room and board to stay in such facilties. WOW I just will never understand the mindset of the creation of the prisons like five star hotels. Great reporting of the truth about such prisons. Thanks for keeping us in the know.

Rate it up and all that is good. Much Love and Peace dear friend! :) Katie

Good morning, Katie. I am glad to know you here. You always came up with positive comment. It looks hard to understand about the idea to make this prison. This prison is a combination between the idealism of the architect and international treaties on civil and political rights. For most of people it is waste a lot of money. Thank you very much for give your vote to this hub. Merry Christmas, Katie. Take care!

Nice hub...I have heard about this prison where they actually have works of art displayed for the pleasure of the prisoners. It seems like with a prison like this, there is nothing to deter convicts from returning. Especially if they have nothing else to fall back on.

Thanks, 2besure for coming to this hub. This place is very comfortable to stay, even for common people may love to this place. But prison is still prison, a place where we can't get our freedom like others outside. How luxury this place but we can't go anywhere, right. Thank you very much. Merry Christmas. Love and peace!

It seems as though when someone goes to prison, society's common view of a "second chance" goes out the window. If you truly believe that someone can change, why not give them an environment that they are comfortable in to try to make a difference, rather than just "punish" them?

I have seen pictures very similar to these of a prison in the Chicago area in Illinois. As many have already stated...how much better to build affordable housing for the homeless or make nursing homes and other places better than to spend this kind of money on a prison. I am certain that many homeless people would gladly give up their "freedom" to spend nights under bridges or on park benches to live in a place like this.

If everyone else in the country lives like this, then I would see no problem with this kind of expenditure. Somehow I doubt that living conditions like this are the norm.

Thought provoking hub as per usual. Voted up!

Good evening, Peggy W. I am glad to hear this from you and thanks for share your thought about this topic. I never knew about the same prison in the Chicago. But I agree with you, better build a nursing homes or other places for homeless and share happiness to them. We can give them a special place like a business training camp, so they can have their own business. They can use their talent or hidden ability to make something useful or they can sell their idea. Of course, my dear. This is not a normal life even in the most luxurious prison in the world. Better living in our comfort house though we have small house. Merry Christmas and have a nice holiday!

Blessing and hugs,

I would imagine that this is only for wealthy, non-violent prisoners (not that their are many in Norway to begin with). Irregardless it is Liberalism run amuck.

I can see people committing a crime just to go there. Free room and board and all the luxuries that most are not use to. Personally I think this is a travesty to give offenders these luxuries, but what do I know. Prasetio30 this was a very good hub, I must go over and read about the other prison.

prasetio30 5 years ago from malang-indonesia Author

Dear, fastfreta. I am glad to know this from you. Maybe we can see the people who committing a crime will enjoy all the facilities in this place. As a people who love normal living, this is just a mirage or artificial life. Deep in our heart, we may enjoy all the facilities but we can cheat our heart who liked a free life. Physically this is looks great, but from spiritual this is luxury hell, right. I hope all the inmates become good person. Thank you very much. ~prasetio

I do like the thought about good education, rehabilitation program, dig their special skill with various training, but if Indonesia start add luxury into prison, I will stop paying tax! rehabilitation programs need no luxury but tools which used to educated only. I think it kind of insulting the victims if they know those people who tried to killed, raped, bugged or steal from them and put them in so many lost and misery, rewarded by living in the golden palace for that.

Well, maybe I am too judgemental but this is what I think. Great article though. provoking thought.

Hey, Pras. cooking something lately? Can you send me some? I am hungry at the moment. :P

My best friend, Preya Cesare. Good to see you here and share your opinion about this prison. I don't believe our country will created such of the prison with luxury facilities. But I don't know with the "special" inmates, for example the case of corruption. I will follow your step to stop paying tax. I was just concerned about the theft of cocoa beans, papaya, and simple things. I hope the judge will act wisely. Thanks for coming and I'll send my delicious food for you. Take care and have a nice day!

Love and peace, prasetio
