I get a kick out of this series of quotes from Ars:
On May 29, 2015, Ulbricht returned to the Manhattan federal courthouse for sentencing. When he had a chance to speak this time around, he took it. 
"I wish I could go back and convince myself to take a different path," he said. "If given the chance, I would never break the law again." 
But Judge Katherine Forrest wasn't buying it. "Silk Road's creation showed that you thought you were better than the law," she said. She then sentenced him to life in prison, which he will serve completely unless freed on appeal; the federal prison system offers no parole options.
I find it amusing that so much time, money and effort went into finding and punishing this man for starting a service that many people found useful but zero effort has gone into investigating while the Justice Department has done nothing at all with regard to the criminal violations of the law carried out by employees of the IRS, the head of the IRS, the email server used by Hilary Clinton and her cronies to get around public law on retention of government records or the massively obvious use of the Clinton Foundation for bribes used to sway both Hillary and the State Department to take actions in accordance with the desires of the foreign governments that kept sending millions of $ to Clinton via the putrid Clinton Foundation. And let's not forget all the violations of public funding used by the president who took off all the locks on campaign donations and thereby took hundreds of millions of $ in donations from foreigners and crooks in violation of campaign financing laws.

What do you think the chances are that Hillary will break the law again if elected president?

No brainer that. 100%, and probably not before Bill, who could be expected to do it on inauguration night--probably with an intern.

Yep, I bet she's going to be pretty busy not checking her privilege to lie, cheat and steal; it's what she does and who she is.

This government has no interest in checking the malfeasance of its minions and strap hangars. Its job is to make sure the people toe the line.
