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.

What makes you assume he isn't getting help? He is, their prison system isn't at all like ours. It's progress because he is a human who committed a crime, and he should be fairly tried and sentenced, as a person, which he was. He was not subject to vigilante justice or mob rule, he was tried fairly, despite committing heinous acts and killing dozens.  Edit: You also seem to underestimate the power of psychoanalysis. He's not just going to 'trick' anyone into getting out.  Three square meals a day, fresh water, clothing, bedding, and cost of facilitation. All tax payer money (for most prisons). It's not as expensive to execute.  Now, if you factor in court cases and time for trial, definitely the death penalty is more expensive.  Yes, and this is a part that we cannot factor out. Obviously the action of execution itself is relatively inexpensive, but we can't just forget about all the appeal process and everything else that goes with the death penalty, that ultimately makes it more expensive than life imprisonment. Also, just like with any prisoner, a prisoner on death row is still being paid for, often for over a decade before getting executed.  And that is something we cannot avoid. Because even after a decade, new technology may come out that proves someone's innocence. Which is my entire reason for being against the death penalty.
