    that it's horribly unfair to the prisoners, as are saying it's horribly unfair to the unemployed citizens.  I incline to agree with you that the unemployed citizens deserve first crack, and BP shouldn't be allowed to do it on the cheap.

    But to the many who are indigating about "forced labor", it is not at ALL a hijack or off-topic to argue that from the prisoners' point of view, the work is desirable no matter how nasty.  

    Thus I think it's very unfair to call mim5677's comments off-topic or inappropriate.
