Should human testing be done on criminals?

Just a question. I personally think human testing in the name of furthering scientific research to develop cures and learn more about the human body, prisoners that have done great crimes (such as mass murder/rapes) should be used in human testing to do some good for the world, rather than rot in a cell. Furthermore, allowing other inmates and prisoners who have not committed such grievous crimes should be allowed a choice to partake as subjects in human testing, for a lowered sentence (if they survive). I understand the many ethical and moral problems around this idea- but what do you think?

As long as it's optional, I'm not opposed

Sets a dangerous precedent, What if wrongly convicted?

Nonetheless i'm not totally opposed, the simple solution to not being experimented on is to not rape or murder people.

The physical side effects could prove to be very harmful - which people would be against.

Kinda like corporal (or even capital) punishment.

So you want to send dangerous, potentially lunatic mass-murderers off to science institutions. Send them off to be experimented on against their will, amongst tons of dangerous chemicals and expensive scientific equipment? What could possibly go wrong with that?

Exactly this, and that's aside from the significant moral issues with the proposal. Even if it is people who have committed terrible crimes, I'm not sure it justifies the potential side effects mentioned in another post.

Surely you won't get valid results plus that's completely wrong.

Money? Incentives within prisons? Reduced sentence?

yes, i am all for human testing on prisonsers, there are many places in the world which use mandatory animal testing. Not only would human testing be a better idea because the DNA of humans is closer to other humans that bunnies, monkeys, dogs etc., it would act a better derrant to do crimes and it will save a large number of innocent animals.

Nope presumably they would come to prison or there would be a secure medical facility.

It should be optional for them and they should be paid, it's a good way of testing and if they're in prison they can make money to send to their families. There should be a minimum term limit depending on the nature, e.g for the most extreme testing they have to be doing a life sentence, for observations anything like a 6 month sentence would do. I think it's fair if they can opt out.

I think full co-operation should be accepted as a form of good behaviour, only for low criminals.
