How much money have you all made in this game?

At least they get to play a video game. In USA, prisoners have to work for barely anything (and it is actual work not farming gold in WoW). Welcome to the new form of slavery. Prisoners...

Lets keep those non-violent drug users locked up so they can be slaves!!!  America the land of the free.



lol seems like a pretty good prison sentence to me....although it would get boring after a while.

True, but in our prisons you get job skills, you can go to church, you have libraries, and are able to even go on the computer in some places. You can also earn college certificates from what my Brother told me!

"The guards would then use the virtual cash for their own means, including trading it for real-world money. Dali claims he overheard guards bragging that they could make close to $1,000 a day off of the efforts of the inmates, none of which ever made its way into the hands of the workers. He also claims that certain quotas were set, and that those who didn't raise enough virtual cash would be physically beaten. "

For those innocents that are in jail (it will always happen sadly) this is frankly terrible, being forced to do 1 activity all day/night long will drive you crazy eventually. And being punished for not completing a quota is just sad.

But for those that indeed raped/killed people; they deserve that and more. Jails stopped  being rehabilitation centers so long ago, so SCREW THEM!   But it would be better if the country uses them as REAL SLAVES to build hospitals  among other things in order to somehow "fix" the SH!T done by them.



Considering how boring WoW is... the chair is more humane.

I agree! Put them to use for something worth while, especially in our country when we have a multi trillion dollar debt! Just not actual jobs because then taxes would go down and spending .
