All men are born free with equal dignity and rights. Those deprived of their liberty must be treated humanely and their inherent human dignity respected.How did Leoben implement this policy? By building (again, my rough translation), "the safest and most modern prison in Europe. . . the first in Austria designed as a visual showpiece."
The Daily Dumper has the pics to prove it (more photos here and here). It's a good deal for the 205 inmates. I doubt any are contemplating this sort of break-out.
According to the building's architects , the prison environment was intended (my rough translation again) "to reflect the housing, work and leisure conditions of everyday life in freedom." Mission accomplished, at least if everyday life is a high-priced city condo. What's missing from Justizzentrum Leoben? Not much--merely justice and punishment.
Lets hope Anthony Kennedy never hears of the place.
