New Coverage

Great article from Bitcoin.com to cover the widespread support Ross’s case has received.

Justice?

Today, the creator of Silk Road 2, a bigger replica of Silk Road with more listings and more sales per month, was sentenced to 5 years and 4 months. Is this justice? Ross is serving his 6th consecutive year of a double life sentence + 40 years. Grotesque disparity!

New support

“I am in full support of Ross Ulbricht’s petition for commutation of sentence. A multiple-life sentence for a nonviolent crime is a great injustice…I urge the President to commute sentences like the double-life sentence Ross is serving.”

New support

“I am literally astounded at how far a prosecution could go of a man who wanted nothing more than freedom in the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave.’ One would not imagine that injustice and destruction of personal freedom to this extent is even possible in a democratic country. As a member of the European Parliament, Ross Ulbricht has my full support.”
– Jiri Mastalka. Member, European Parliament

New support

“Ross Ulbricht does not deserve to die in prison. The severe punishment of a fundamental death sentence in Ross’s case shocks the conscience and is morally and fiscally unjustifiable. By locking Ross up forever, we deprive ourselves of the very human ingenuity our nation needs to thrive. It is time to give Ross a real chance at redemption and the opportunity to prove he can be a benefit to society.”
– Brittany K. Barnett. Attorney. Co-Founder, Buried Alive Project

New letter from Ross

“This note is hard to write. I want to be there with all of you so bad. I’ve been locked up the better part of a decade now. It’s hard. Every day wears on me a little more. I have to believe there is a happy ending to all of this, where I’m there in person, talking about it in the past tense with you…” You can read the full letter here.
