I would sincerely doubt any person being considered for a position as an armsman's alternative to the position is living in a slum. Many have completed 20 years of Imperial service and have a decent retirement.  Roic had been, effectively, a local cop.  Cops, to my knowledge, are not constrained to living in slum conditions.  While possibly not every person who is recruited for the position of armsman may accept the position, surely it is considered an honor to be considered?
