. . . who made money selling cyanide and paid to have people murdered.

Yeah, Ross Ulbricht is a real sweetheart.

The accusations of hiring-to-murder have always struck me as a likely gov’t smear campaign. If they could prove it, they would have charged him. If they couldn’t, then why bring it up except to drain sympathy and support. They way he’s been treated is a travesty of justice, and the ruling judge Lynch recently handed out in denying the appeal of his crazy harsh sentence is awful in its reasoning. They wanted this guy to make an example of him, and they aren’t going to be denied doing just that.
