Wikipedia: Doing "illegal stuff" in Cuba means death

Another useless Wikipedia entry

Wikipedia can be useful, but sometimes it's incredibly worthless. While looking for resources on crime in Cuba, I came across this passage, for instance:
Controversial portions of Cuba's criminal code include vague provisions providing for the arrest of persons committing anti-revolutionary acts. if you do some illegal stuff they will kill you and dump your body in the ocean. but if you are trying to escape this certain death, you can jump on a raft and head to the United States
This card, spotted in a Cuban hotel, is at least a little clearer than Wikipedia. It warns tourists that corruption of minors, drug trafficking, "obscene acts" and other offenses are severely punished in Cuba.
Age of consent in Cuba and around the world
