There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

Actually fascinating.

Consider the tone and the efforts they're going to in order to distinguish between Bitcoin and the wrongdoing. e.g.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara: "Truly innovative business models don’t need to resort to old-fashioned law-breaking, and when Bitcoins, like any traditional currency, are laundered and used to fuel criminal activity, law enforcement has no choice but to act. We will aggressively pursue those who would coopt new forms of currency for illicit purposes."

Two more arrested for victimless non-crimes.
I feel sorry for these guys, but that's one of the risks you take when you live in the land of the free.

At this rate it shouldn't take too long before 99 percent of the US population is behind bars.

That will be interesting to watch. I wonder if anyone has done any scientific studies about how large a percent of the population is allowed to be in prison before the prisoners have enough power to simply say, "No."

Kind of like the studies on the amount of cars you can add until you gain "traffic".

Quote
SHREM, who personally bought drugs on Silk Road, was fully aware that Silk Road was a drug-trafficking website, and through his communications with FAIELLA, SHREM also knew that FAIELLA was operating a Bitcoin exchange service for Silk Road users. Nevertheless, SHREM knowingly facilitated FAIELLA’s business with the Company in order to maintain FAIELLA’s business as a lucrative source of Company revenue. SHREM knowingly allowed FAIELLA to use the Company’s services to buy Bitcoins for his Silk Road customers; personally processed FAIELLA’s orders; gave FAIELLA discounts on his high-volume transactions; failed to file a single suspicious activity report with the United States Treasury Department about FAIELLA’s illicit activity, as he was otherwise required to do in his role as the Company’s Compliance Officer; and deliberately helped FAIELLA circumvent the Company’s AML restrictions, even though it was SHREM’s job to enforce them and even though the Company had registered with the Treasury Department as a money services business.

If democracy would work, I'd say 51% can put the other 49% in prison. That would actually be an improvement over the system as it is now.

The 51% would be better off outright killing the 49%. The upkeep cost of having half the population in prison would be such a drain on the economy that the 51% wouldn't survive long.
