Somebody on my Facebook friends list posted the E-Card pictured to your right. I must admit, as an animal lover, I chuckled. Then I realized something. Why aren’t we doing this? I know, you’re thinking that’s cruel. It’s a human rights violation. Not if they volunteer it’s not. How bout’ we offer prisoners (we’re talking serious offenders here, not someone convicted of petty crimes) a chance to earn some redemption by volunteering to be a guinea pig for drug trials? Prisoners could be rewarded with extra privileges like TV time or snacks. NOT a reduced sentence. It’s a chance for an incarcerated person to give back to society, save an animal and help pharmaceutical companies create life saving drugs. Unfortunately, the government would never allow it. It makes too much sense!
