In his final weeks in office before Joe Biden’s inauguration, President Donald Trump is weighing granting clemency to Ross Ulbricht, the founder and former administrator of the world’s most famous darknet drug market, Silk Road, The Daily Beast has learned.

Regardless of what you might think of Trump, it is a good thing for someone who was unfairly locked up to be given a second chance.

Ross Ulbricht shouldn't be serving a life sentence, but he does deserve some time. Dude is also very weird, but you can't charge him for that.

https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/crime/bs-md-ci-silk-road-agents-charged-20150330-story.html

Saw this article today, apparently some federal agents tried to extort him for some BTC, and this eventually led Ross to try to set up a hit man for hire. I read his wiki and if I recall correctly there wasn't enough evidence to charge him for the hit man spiel, so he is serving life for setting up Silk Road and probably some other related charges.

I'd rather see Snowden get pardoned tbh. Snowden's crimes were a greater contribution than ordering meth online.

Totally agree with the fact that he does deserve some time. There's nothing within the current set of laws that would allow for anyone to say that he shouldn't go to jail for some amount of time. Guy was facilitating hundreds of millions - or even billions (not sure) -- of drug transactions online and taking his cut for himself. He didn't do it all out of the kindness of his heart.

Drug laws should totally be reformed yes, but they're not reformed yet and NONE of us want judges just writing their own laws cause that whole thing can cut both ways.

Snowden and Assange totally deserve a pardon before this guy. But if all of them can get it and drug law reform can come, then that's amazing too.

Smells, at first whiff, strongly of Q-tard horseshit.

But if DPR managed to sock away just a fraction of a BTC it probably has enough value to attract some of the penny-pouncers in Trump's sphere who send me 20-30 spams per day begging for donations.  So, who knows?
