There’s only one thing to do with a pirate - if you don’t throw him overboard to the sharks, HANG THE B@ST@RD.
Walk the PLANK!
Absolutely. This isn't eve a close call. As an added bonus, the waters off the Somali coast are some of the most shark-infested seas in the world.
The traditional justice is to walk the plank.
I was thinking more a half ounce of lead in the head... then throw them overboard.
But you're right, rope is cheaper.
Dealing with piracy in the old way evolved over thousands of years, was simple, final and the recidivism rate was zero.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
With profound apologies to the ACLU, the internationalist human "rights" groups and other mental deficients.

HIGHLY recommended and timely reading, a page-turner that will give you goosebumps:
Zacks, Richard. Pirate Coast, The: Thomas Jefferson, the First Marines, and the Secret Mission of 1805.
Below is a very short but excellent clip explaining what Jefferson was up against, both abroad with the pirates themselves and at home with John Adams:
"John Adams, however, belived that paying tribute to the pirates, like the Euro-peons [sic] did, was best. Adams felt that if Euro-peon nations had been paying tribute for generations, it would not be detrimental to America's international standing to do the same. . . ."
My gosh; how what's old becomes new again!
"Thomas Jefferson and the Barbary Pirates.”

Same applies to traitors in Congress, Hollywood, et cetera.
