Seems like a good way to see desertions skyrocket.

Or “accidents” at military facilities.

Gravity already seems to be particularly challenging over there lately.

I absolutely would not want to be an officer of a squad including an armed ex-prisoner turned combatant. Not even if one was a giant talking sharkman.

Plus - there were already reports of real soldiers doing that. This will only make that riskier.
