Summer has finally arrived and that means you and your family will probably be looking for things to occupy all your free time. Why not do something that everyone will enjoy like visiting LA's Universal Studios Hollywood theme park? Get the goods on this huge amusement park!

Universal Studios Hollywood - Go Behind the Scenes

Universal Studios Hollywood is the original Universal theme park - which has spawned two more parks, Universal Studios Orlando and Universal Studios Japan. Universal Studios has always offered tours of their production stages, starting up a train ride tour of their movie sets back in 1964. This eventually evolved into the theme park you know today - which officially opened in 1985 with its King Kong ride.

Universal Studios Hollywood - Coolest Rides

  • The Fast and the Furious: Extreme Close-Up - This new attraction brings you up-close-and-personal with the coolest cars from The Fast and the Furious franchise. Find out how the crazy street-racing stunts were preformed in the movies and get ready to be dazzled by big crashes and explosions! The attraction is accompanied by a great hip hop beat to really get you in the groove.
  • Revenge of the Mummy: The Ride - This Universal Studios Hollywood attraction is based around one of the world's fastest roller coasters in the world. This ride is not for the faint at heart. You'll be thrown head-on into the dark, skin-crawling world of ancient Egypt and there's no way your heart won't be beating a million miles a minute!
  • Earthquake Special Effects - There aren't too many people who have experienced an earthquake that rates 8.3 on the Richter scale and lived to tell about it. With the Earthquake simulator at Universal Studios Hollywood, you get the chance to see exactly what kind of damage a natural disaster like that would cause, without actually having to risk bodily harm!

I believe that it depends on the kind of person and what their crime is. I would feel a lot safer if a person who was a serial killer wasn't around anymore. Again, the Anders Breivik case is a great example of a country treating a mass murderer like a human being rather than a monster (after all, we are a little bit old to be believing in monsters).  So...after reading up on him, I'm very surprised.  He was the Taliban's Taliban.  But he's twisted. He should not of been deemed sane. He should be spending the rest of his days in Solitary Confinement.  Would locking this man in a small space and letting his mind corrode even further really service anyone? Would you or I actually be better off? Do you think the victims' families will be safer at night knowing we've crushed the psyche of a murderer?  Being in prison is good enough, and he'll stay in prison as long as he's a threat, I see no reason that we need to torture him (and that is exactly what indefinite solitary confinement is), other than to satisfy our primal desires. This is why I consider this such a progressive decision. Treating even mass murderers like human beings who still have potential value is progress.  Crushing his psyche is more humane then killing the man. And at this point, he's not going to be much good to society.  Not every psychopathic murderer can come back to be a good citizen. Should he get a shrink? Of course. But if he's deemed "broken beyond repair" I don't see why we should let him be among others, so that he can either be martyr'd for his beliefs in jail or kill a Muslim who is in the prison, or spread his message to to others.  The compromise is that we need to have a volley of psychological tests to determine if they could be fixed (And yes, i know it's not that simple...but its better then letting EVERY SINGLE PSYCHOPATH in a regular prison) and use those tests to place them either in a regular prison, or have a makeshift Arkham Asylum, or solitary confinement.  I think you're confusing high-security and solitary confinement. There is absolutely no reason to keep anybody in solitary confinement indefinitely. We do not need to kill him, or crush his psyche, we have other options. IF he is still deemed unsafe, they can deal with him as they see fit. Obviously if he presents an active danger to other inmates, he should be kept away, but I seriously question the idea that we should preemptively punish him for things he hasn't actually done yet. I don't disagree that it's a case-by-case basis, obviously not every murderer can be reintegrated into society, but if there's even one, don't you think we should give him that opportunity? I think we should start by assuming that every one can be rehabilitated (which obviously won't happen), and then narrow it down from there, not the other way around. Prison is not about making people uncomfortable, it should be about keeping society safe, and about reintegrating violent criminals into a safe society.
