To cut through the noise and non-relevant discussion, let's see if we can
boil this down to a couple of issues:

1. Should ISPs be responsible for abuse from within their customer base?

1a. If so, how?

2. Should hosting providers also be held responsible for customers who
abuse their services in a criminal manner?

2.a If so, how?

I think anyone in their right mind would agree that if a provider see
criminal activity, they should take action, no?

If that also holds true, then why doesn't it happen?

Providers in the U.S. are the worst offenders of hosting/accommodating
criminal activities by Eastern European criminals. Period.
