A Norwegian mass murderer has threatened to go on a hunger strike for better living conditions, demanding higher quality video games and an improved living arrangement.
In a letter the Agence France-Presse received Friday, Anders Breivik — described by the AFP as a right-wing extremist who killed 77 in a 2011 bombing and shooting rampage — described his current conditions in prison as “torture.”
Breivik, serving a 21-year sentence in southeast Norway, reportedly said he’d starve himself if his Playstation 2 console wasn’t upgraded to a PS3 “with access to more adult games that I get to choose myself.”
“Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games.”
“Other inmates have access to adult games while I only have the right to play less interesting kids games. One example is ‘Rayman Revolution,’ a game aimed at three year olds,” the 35-year-old convicted killer wrote, according to the AFP.
Saying he has behaved in an “exemplary fashion,” Breivik also demanded a more comfortable sofa or sitting device, instead of his “painful” chair and better conditions for his daily walk.
The mass murderer even asked for a new computer to replace what he called a “worthless typewriter with technology dating back to 1873.”
“You’ve put me in hell … and I won’t manage to survive that long. You are killing me,” he reportedly wrote in November.
“If I die, all of Europe’s right-wing extremists will know exactly who it was that tortured me to death … That could have consequences for certain individuals in the short term but also when Norway is once again ruled by a facist regime in 13 to 40 years from now,” he warned.
In his letter, Breivik also billed himself as a “political prisoner” and “human rights activist.”
