Here are a few questions for the 'they got what they deserved' crowd...
Where does it end?
Have you ever given your credit card to pay the waiter instead of paying at the register? Do you deserve to have your CC info stolen because you gave them access to everything they need to do it?
Have you ever used your ATM card in an ATM that doesn't break up and/or slow the insertion of the card, which makes it so it can be read by a secondary reader? Do you deserve to have your ATM Card info stolen because you didn't take every precaution?
Have you ever made an online transaction where the information could be stolen by a programmer who stored off site the info without your knowledge or the knowledge of the site? Is that getting what you deserve if they do?
Have you ever paid with a check that contains your signature, address, probably phone number, routing information, etc? Do you get what you deserve if someone records, copies and misuses that information?
How about the convenience store that gets robbed? Is that what the ownership deserves because they didn't require all employees to attend combat training before employment and have an arsenal available for them to use in case of an emergency? Or maybe you would think it's the person's fault for applying for a job they probably need and not taking a combat course prior to employment and carrying a weapon or two with them to work.
Seriously, where does your argument end?
