I grew up in the era of sentencing criminals to "x years at hard labor." As a youth, I'd see chain gangs crushing oyster shell to make county roads. My friends and I would NEVER contemplate any action to put on in those circumstances. I have problems to this day with the phrase "cruel & unusual punishment." Dog gone it, punishment shouldn't be an air-conditioned cell with cable and computer access for a short period. It's like a time out for children, not a severe lifestyle change as a consequence for bad acts. If people saw criminals routinely sentenced to this sort of thing, it might affect how they choose to make money.
