[fide-chess] Sentenced to Life In Prison for Running the Silk Road Bitcoi...

Dear Eric,

Basically I agree with you.

The bitcoin was and still is a threat to the government monopoly on the
issuance of money and the governments collection of income taxes on that
money. I never invested in bitcoins because I felt certain they would be
shut down.

But sentencing this person to life in prison for murder when nobody other
than a drug addict died and all he did was operate a bitcoin exchange is a
case of the punishment not fitting the crime.
