Once the “I have a Jewish lawyer” line doesn’t work anymore, no point in keeping her around.

Fascinating

Why should they get any years?  They should be forced to forfeit all of their illicit proceeds, work toward fixing the problem they exploited, have their wages garnished to a fund to repay for damages caused, and have restricted/monitored computer access.

Please tell me you’re kidding. Do you have any idea what it means to bring a country down to its knees ? You’re probably thinking that a bunch of people just couldn’t browse the web. Try to imagine a hospital trying to cope without computers. Or the amount of business/money that’s lost (they could never repay those amounts). This isn’t white collar crime anymore. They’re holding hostages. You’re right, they shouldn’t rot in jail. Bring back the firing squads. Hopefully it would deter others

I am not kidding.  I am aware of what they did but they were clearly not trying to kill people.  They were young, foolish, and bad. They deserved to be punished and feel the weight of what they did.  You are right that they can never repay.  Therefore let's kill them?  Let them pay what they can for the rest of their lives.  Even if killing them would be a deterrent (I'm not sure it would) would killing them be justified?  How about killing all those who run red lights?

Who’s being held hostage when you run a light ? Many don’t even do it for the money, they just love the power & fame of bringing millions down to their knees.

The article makes it sound like the FBI doesn't think the Dyn attack, which fits with what you're describing, was them.
