    I'm not sure why you think the military is strong because it's all-volunteer. We spend as much as the rest of the world combined, and we have technology decades ahead of most threats. Sure our training is top notch too, but gee, I wonder why we're the best, lol.
    All the best technology and training in the world is useless if someone doesn't want to be there in the first place. It takes a certain mindset to succeed in the military.

    After reading what those who are or have been in the military have said on this topic, I have to agree with them and have formed the opinion that no, judges shouldn't have the option of sentencing non-violent offenders to military service.

    Well I don't know. There are probably better diversion programs for them to go into. It's much more useful to tell non-violent offenders to do some things for their victims and society than to have them suck up tax dollars in a cell, though you can use that as the alternative if they fail to do the diversion program.

    No argument from me on this. Restitution to one's victim(s) is always a good idea.

    though you can use that as the alternative if they fail to do the diversion program.
    Have to disagree here. Unfortunately there will always be those who refuse to be reformed. Forcing them to serve in the military only serves to unnecessarily risk the lives of those dedicated men and women of the armed forces who serve and protect our country.

    No no. I meant they go to prison if they fail to comply with restitution. Specifically "that" referred to the "sucking up resources in a cell" from the previous clause.
