Re: What can save us from this malicious computer ransomware infestation

Yeah, because the death penalty has done such a good job of stopping all violent crime in the US hasn't it? Oh, wait...!

The issue with the death penalty, is no one doing a crime that calls for it (or pretty much any crime) believes at the time that they're going to get caught, so the ultimate sanction, is ultimately useless.
