Wow. Last Heart I did in the game is whipping prison slaves so they work faster. Is it just me, or do some of the quests in this game push the envelope a bit?

You've murdered hundreds(possibly thousands) of "bandits", most of which you never saw commit a crime, they were just labelled "bandits".
You've probably done horrific damage to the ecosystems of Tyria by murdering all the wildlife.
You've probably helped asura test on live, sapient test subjects.
I could go on, but I think you get the idea by now. So what makes you think whipping criminals is "pushing the envelope" as opposed to the rest of the game?

Well, I suppose combating legitimate, immediate threats feels more hero-like than torturing prisoners? That said, I do feel somewhat bad when I accidentally drop a grenade or a bomb on an unsuspecting bunny.

Not only "bandits", we commit genocide against the Dredge, Skritt, Grawl, whatever just for the fun of it. Not sure why this would stand out...

Imagine if you where sitting in your house watching TV and suddenly someone kick the door in yelling I'M A GUARDIAN, I HAVE COME TO HELP YOU!!! and proceed to kick all your furniture, unscrew your lightbulbs and kill your entire family because they caught aggro.

You do get to ask the Warden why some prisoners end up there. Just imagine they are murderers and rapists.

And you don't have to whip them, you just chose to do so.

You can wait for them to chip away ore and throw it in the smelters, or you can mine ore yourself. Then give the metal made in the smelter to a guard. You can even imagine yourself helping the poor whipped murderers finish up quicker so they can have some relief.

There's a goody-two-shoes option for this quest.

Sounds about like an average day for me in Skyrim before leveling sneaking and pickpocket.  ;)

*picks lock*
"Oh... you're home... dinner smells wonderful!  *nervous chuckle*  I just wanted to take everything that wasn't nailed down and then bolt, but you're going to stop cooking and call guards in about 5 seconds soooo..."
*stabby stab stab stab*
"I just murdered a whole family for 5 coins and some herbs.  Oh well!  Onto the next house!"

Anyway!  Did you know that you don't have to whip the slaves to complete that heart quest?  Let the guards be the jerks and mine the stuff yourself.  I can't really say that some NPCs whipping prison slaves is pushing the envelope when almost all of my slayer achievements are complete.  I'm a homicidal maniac!  Is that really better?  :P

Don't you even read the news? Sounds like a typical day for a SWAT team doing a dynamic entry at the wrong address, except you left out the puppycide part. (Look out! That 14-year-old, arthritic, half-blind, tail-wagging lab is COMING RIGHT FOR US!)
