Mandatory Community Service is just a form of slavery. It doesn't matter if your slaves are picking cotton or doing something good for the community. Slavery is slavery. After all, we could get everyone together and force them to rebuild all the roads in the country. It's for the common good right? But it's still slavery. Someone should take it to court.
If you want something done you should be willing to hand over the cash to make it happen or keep your mouth shut and do it yourself. Unless of course you're telling me I can have some free slaves? I got some community work around my house I wouldn't mind having a couple of high schoolers do for me? However, until I get free labor, nobody else including the city should be able to get free labor either. If I have to pay, everyone should have to pay or it's slavery.

Here in California every high schooler needs 60 completed hours of community service to graduate

I see nothing wrong with mandatory community service. We should be taught to help our fellow man just as much as we should be taught math. I was unaware that Californians were required to do that for graduation, but I applaud such efforts.
