I do not get what the problem is for law enforcement.  Piracy has been always punishable by death.  The laws are still on the books.  Any country can prosecute any pirate under International law.  Proof is not hard to get.  Just hand them over to a country like Saudi Arabia or China who will be happy to execute them.  Why does Kenya or the US have to take the burden of prosecution when rendition to China is legal and easy to do?

Because we have live and abide by a legal standard that says the guilty must be proven guilty, and we don't turn people over to foreign governments who will execute them rathet than try them. At least, we are not supposed to. Romanian torture camps apparently notwithstanding, anyway.

I am perfectly fine with my tax dollars paying to prosecute offenders legally, knowing that by the same token I would be tried rather than summarily dragged off and murdered on suspicion of a crime, the cost of the system is that it makes punishing the guilty more challenging, and occasionally fails to protect the innocent. But it is a hell of a lot better than living in China or Saudi Arabia or Yemen, I assure you.
