Clemency for Ross Ulbricht, Serving Double Life for a Website

This is a sentence that shocks the conscience. Clemency For Ross Ulbricht, Serving Double Life For A Website (#GotBitcoin?)

My son, Ross Ulbricht, is serving a double life sentence plus 40 years, without the possibility of parole, for a website he made when he was 26 years old and passionate about free markets and privacy. Ross―an Eagle Scout, scientist and peaceful entrepreneur―had all non-violent charges and no criminal history.

FreeRoss.org started this petition to President of the United States

The website Silk Road was an e-commerce platform similar to eBay, where individual users chose what to list for sale. Both legal and illegal items were sold, most commonly small amounts of cannabis.

Ross is condemned to die in prison, not for dealing drugs himself but for a website where others did. This is far harsherthan the punishment for many murderers, pedophiles, rapists and other violent people.

Ross’s investigation, trial and sentencing were rife with abuse.  This includes corrupt federal investigators (now in prison) who were hidden from the jury, as well as prosecutorial misconduct, constitutional violations and reliance on unproven allegations at sentencing.

Ross did not get a fair trial and his sentence was draconian. 
Justice was not served.

We, the undersigned, seek mercy for Ross Ulbricht. He told the court that Silk Road was a terrible mistake that he deeply regrets, that he never intended harm, and that he has learned the heavy price of breaking the law.

Ross’s life history clearly shows he is a compassionate young man with much to contribute. The judge received 100 letters attesting to his excellent character and how much he has helped others. These include those in prison, where he has tutored, led classes, and generally helped fellow inmates.

Clemency for Ross Ulbricht, Serving Double Life for a Website

Keeping Ross caged for life helps no one; will cost taxpayers about $2 million; and deprives society of an exceptionally kind, generous and creative person.

Even in the face of his walking death sentence, Ross clings to the hope of a second chance and dreams of a future where he can be reunited with his loved ones, and use his education, knowledge and skills to give to his community and society as a whole.

Tim Draper Calls For Ross Ulbricht’s Release: ‘We Need Entrepreneurs Like That Guy!’

One of the most successful investors in the world is calling for the release of convicted criminal Ross Ulbricht.

Following up on a September 21 tweet by Tim Draper that was completely sympathetic to the imprisoned Silk Road creator, Fred Schebesta of the Crypto Finder video podcast took a moment to ask the billionaire his latest feelings on the matter. Draper gave an effusive response:

Free Ross, baby! Get him out. We need entrepreneurs like that guy! Get him out of jail! Why do we put these really extraordinary people in jail? We need their minds, their energy, their life force. Get him free. Who knows what else he could’ve come up with?

Ulbricht is serving a life sentence for his role in creating and maintaining the notorious marketplace that operated on the dark web and used cryptocurrency transactions to let people buy and sell contraband. When the FBI shut the operation down, Draper famously bought the nearly 30,000 BTC that had been seized. It seems Ulbricht has been close to his mind ever since.

“I get that he’s got to be an example, and he stepped over the line,” Draper continued, “but he’s been in jail for a while. Get him out. I cry when my cat goes into a cage, it tears my heart out when these prisoners go into cages.”

Please sign this petition and help us bring Ross home.
