If this was a film, you'd stop watching it for being too ridiculous. Bitcoins are like the curse of the mummy, everyone involved with them is hosed in the end.

You know how people used to do XCOM runs using their Facebook friends as soldier names

I want to do a bitcoin run now, just to see what nickname Col. Carl Mark Force IV gets, and also so I can send "Magic" Mike Karpeles to infiltrate EXARCH

am I the only one thinking that admitting to paying bribes for being involved with silk road would just help undermine the defense's story about not being involved with silk road?

he would have just said the feds planted all the evidence and somehow hacked their way into Ulbricht's account to steal the money

if i were them, i'd use these corrupt cops to argue that they worked with karples to frame ross once the corrupt cops knew that someone was going to get busted soon

sure wouldn't explain the heaps of evidence on ross's computer implicating these guys but id hope the jury wouldn't think of that, orblame mark for it to cover his tracks even more while getting rid of his co-conspirators

still a hail mary but one with a way better shot

Federal Agents Who Persecuted Ulbricht Arrested

quote:

Two Federal Agents involved in the undercover operation to bust the Silk Road have been arrested for stealing money taken over the course of the Investigation. Arrested were DEA Agent Carl Mark Force IV and Secret Service Agent Shaun Bridges. Mister Force IV in particular is alleged to have stolen a number of Bitcoins from the Silk Road and taken possession of them personally instead of remanding them to Government custody as was expected of him as his theft occured in the course of his undercover work. Agents of the fiat system simply can not resist the allure of better money. Given that the investigating agents could not be trusted to not take Silk Road proceeds for their own use, the serious question of what other liberties were taken during the investigation remains.
