I assume you are aware that acute radiation sickness can be a very painful and messy way to die- hemorrhages in joints, profuse bloody diarrhea, massive infections,etc. Are you advocating torture?
PS: Moral issues aside, what makes you think the prisoners would work. The US tried to put prisoners to work in WW2 on the assumption that criminals would make good killers. I didn't work, they just make lousy undisciplined soldiers.
The system worked somewhat for the Russians, but they had to threaten them with trailing executioners that would shoot anyone running away. And, this worked probably because most of these soldiers were not actually criminals, but regular soldiers assigned to these disciplinary battalions because they were late for roll call, or sneezed while at attention, or what ever excuse was necessary to fill out the requirements.

To error is human... and I'm very human.
