Storyline

One of the key roles of prisons is to reform offenders and send them back into society better citizens. Reoffending rates are key to the success of any penal system. While some countries are cutting recidivism to all time lows, others can't seem to get a grip on prison reform. PRISON: BREAKING THE CYCLE examines reoffending through the eyes of convicted criminals in two very different justice systems: Texas and Norway.

Would be terrible here in the U.S. Would work for some; others would have no problem returning to prison if this naive Norwegian system was in place. A lot of murderers are very outgoing and charming. You'd never know how cold they are.
