Just Like Old Times by Robert J. Sawyer
This is the strangest method to control the population that I've run across.
Chronotransference is a technology that can send a person's mind back in time to live out the life of a person long dead. The person's mind cannot control the body he or she is in, only view the life until its conclusion.
The present day body dies and is no longer a burden on society.
In this story, a man convicted of multiple murders, convinces the authorities to transfer his mind into a tyrannosaurus rex.
It was an odd story but imaginative, well written and just plain fun to read.
