so what im wondering. during a war when they have the conscription/draft. Do they take any people who are actually in jail for murder or something like that? or if your in jail, can you gain your freedom through joining the military during a war? Like say there's some person like the DC snipers. They are homicidal and can kill. Why not send them to the front to kill the enemy, instead of sending a non-murderer to the front have someone sitting in jail doing nothing.
