I wouldn't see a problem with it if they were all real criminals

but with victimless crimes one can't be sure.

Since they aren't I oppose this no but if the law were different?

I personally think real criminals who violate others should labour as part of their punishment and most money they make taxed to fund the prisons, police and court systems. Slavery? Why should we be tax slaves to house criminals, they should work for their bread and butter, if they want any of it. Maybe it should be more free market food costs x amount of money, you can work for it here... They should pay for the justice system they make necessary.
