Can't do the time

Then maybe you shouldn't murder 77 people;

Anders Behring Breivik would like butter, a new pen, more comfortable handcuffs and a view.
Breivik, the Norwegian anti-Muslim extremist convicted of the murders of 77 people in 2011, is serving a 21-year sentence in a maximum-security prison outside Oslo, Norway. He is not satisfied with the accommodations, though: his three-cell suite with a TV and exercise equipment, lodgings commensurate with Norway's typically humane treatment of its convicts.
Specifically, his coffee gets cold because he doesn't have a thermos, he's under a mental strain when supervised brushing his teeth and shaving, and his freedom of speech is being violated because his phone calls and mail are being censored.

Those disincentives ought to be enough to put off anyone else thinking of becoming a mass murderer.
