Why The Silk Road Case Matters - An Interview with Ross Ulbricht's Mom


3 months agoSteemit2 min read

Hi Steem Fam!

I had the pleasure of rooming with Lyn Ulbricht at World Crypto Con and on the last day - we decided to sit down for a casual chat over coffee in our room and talk about Ross.

In this interview with Lyn Ulbricht, we quickly cover what the Silk Road is, and the story of Ross’ sentencing - but we then move into discussing why his case matters - and why every American should care about the outcome.

Lyn and I discuss the eroding freedoms and how our criminal justice system has let us down. The fact is - if this can happen to Ross (a non-violent first time offender) then it could happen to anyone.

We’re not supposed to be prisoned or condemned to die for our philosophical or political beliefs in the United States. This is not supposed to happen here.

Lyn also goes over in detail how the Silk Road case violates the 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th amendments.
