In the second link, what is described as happening sounds like a new version of 'Shanghaiing',with forced labor on land rather than at sea.
Don't large numbers of the US prison population (also consisting of people incarcerated on drug charges) provide similar types of forced labor for pittances in wages?
What is going on in China may be beastly, but what is going on in the US prison system ain't beautiful, either.
