    ^^^Of course they are. The military`s job is to kill people and to break things. I wouldn`t want a bunch of fluffy bunny petting wussbags defending our country...I want a borderline sociopath like that guy.

    Personally, I think the army would be a WAY better punishment then the average prison with it`s cable tv, work out rooms, three squar meals a day, internet access. Criminals have it to easy, they SHOULD be forced, not just offered, but forced to enlist. I also think it would be a good way to get homeless people off the street, enlist them too, just tell the addicted ones that the enemey stole their drugs and watch them go nuts.

    Thats not really uncommon, if you look back at the `60`s, `70`s and even early `80`s that happened alot. Either join the military or go to jail. If you were kicked out of the military before your time was up, you were sent to jail.

    Considering how low recruitment numbers are in every service branch of the military, this might not be a bad idea...
    On the other hand, (speaking as an Army wife)I don`t know if I would feel good about such a guy being in my husband`s unit, possibly having to protect my husband in a deployment situation, or if the Army would truly be a good place for him and his anger...

    This has been going on since WWII. Yall don`t get out much do ya?

    And maybe the army will straighted him out for good. Jail just makes a criminal worse.

    Like justlionel and Anchorless point out, this isn`t new. During Vietnam, judges would offer the choice to lots of small-time criminals. This guy got the offer because he said he wanted to go in the Army.

    We could have two armies, segregated for criminal and non-criminal. How peachy does that sound?

    If you take offense, then burger off. :P It was a joke anyhow.

    THANK GOD! i read the title and immedietly thought the draft had been reinstated! it wouldnt affect ME for quite a while, but this idiotic war doesnt look like it will be ending this century so...
    also, fallensoul said nothing about mentally ill people, shes talking about criminals and drug addicts. not much better, but get it straight man! also, not only do psychopaths make the best soldiers, but soldiers become the most disturbed psychopaths! (insert bitter cynicism here)

    Actually i think thats a good idea!
    imagine it-`wer ma drugs!!!!

    I think that the military would a better and tougher punishment for him, give him some harsh discipline.

    actually targo, we`re both right. she said both. also, if by "psychopath" you mean a mentally ill person, there is a condition called *post traumatic stress disorder*! symptoms include (but are not limited to):
    paranoia, depression and psychosis! all of which are enough to get oneself classified as "mentally ill". ever heard of the crazy vietnam vets? note the word CRAZY. as in insane. as in, mentally ill. (i am not implying that all vietnam vets are crazy, only some) sorry if this sounds defensive, but your unnessesary snide remarks got my back up. if you will reread my first post, i think you will find it entirely unagressive. peace.

    I don`t know how "army wives" cope. If my husband (in the future) joined the army I`d divorce him straight away. But I wouldn`t even go out with anyone who would, so there`s not much chance.

    I keep thinking that if this war gets bigger, and they re-instate the compulsory joining, I`d just put on more weight and become too overweight to be eligible. I`d do anything to keep myself and those I love out of that bullshi*t.

    BLOODY AMERICANS!

    You`re the kind of wife/gf all my friends had while i was in the navy.. Boo hoo! i can`t cope with sitting at home/working a job while my husband is out defending our nation, so i`ll just divorce him and steal his money. Saw it happen so many times.. Those women are pathetic.

    As for the original topic, my Master Chief joined the navy through the military or jail program, after he stole a few cars and got caught. He retires next, after 24 years in. One of the smartest, most capable men i know. God knows how wrecked his life would have been had he simply been shoved off to some jail cell to rot.

    Sure, not many turn around like that, but then, its worth it if even one does.

    The guy was an abuser, he needs counciling not jail time or military enlistment. That does nothing to help scumbags like him.

    And FallenSoul, you have some skewed logic. No one should be should be *forced* to enlist ever, especially not as punishment for a crime. And to suggest it as an answer to homelessness, as if they were an inferior sort of people, is just ludicrous. What a removed person you must be to speak so dispassionately about those less fortunate.
