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.

Pretty much. If you are going to try and run a "legit public business", don't fucking poke the bear in your spare time...

Let's give him the benefit of the doubt though, he allegedly did these all these things.

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 fee.

FTFY.

Thanks  Huh

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".

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.

Doesn't an increase in the prison-industrial complex create more GDP growth than the people it imprisons would if they were free? It wouldn't surprise me if imprisoning increases GDP, just like building hospitals increases GDP. You see, we need more sick people and criminals to grow the economy.

Yup.  Speaking only of BTC-e, the bids and asks seem healthy enough for now.  Perhaps an uptick coming.

Gox price is no way to judge what is happening... it is either being levitated or the result of ongoing withdraw issues.

Dismal projections is not my intentions, but anyone any thoughts too how china will respond. As I think most here have noticed for every 100 positive news articles it only take's 1 to degrade all positivity in the general bitcoin public.

There are lot of noobs in Bitcoin who still haven't grew a pair so they panic on each bad news. Kinda understandable, it's not a game, real money is involved but then again, panic is best way to lose the money in this shit.

This feels like before silk road 1 closure. Minor bull market after consolidation. Some bad news makes it drop, then it rockets.

edit: I got my bids in the 500s on stamp, just in case.
