Black Knighting: 13 Amendment Constitutional slavery edition

so, if it should ever happen that you find yourself a victim of some sort of felony, i suggest that when it comes to the sentencing phase of the trial that you request that the judge honor your 13th Amendment Right to hold the miscreant as a slave for what would have been the duration of his prison term.

present this as a method to help reduce over crowding in the prisons.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirteenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
"Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation."


when the inevitable sputtering and blathering ensues, note that the Constitutional prohibition against "cruel and unusual punishment" was contained in the 8th Amendment and that, thus, the Constitution does not consider Slavery to be either cruel or unusual.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eighth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
"Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted. "
