re: Silk Road Founder Arrested
I'm curious about whether Graham's speculation is correct. What if CBP was tipped off to the package by an intelligence gathering scheme of dubious legality?

I find it hilarious that this black market 'KingPin' was stupid enough to have Illegal identification sent FROM a foreign country TO his home address. Did he not realize the level of scrutiny packages going cross border undergo? Lol.

Not so bright after all!!

re: Silk Road Founder Arrested
I find it fascinating that "authorities estimate that Silk Road generated over $1.2 billion (that's with a "B" folks) in sales and $80 million in commissions" and our government, the so-called "authorities" can't seem to generate enough to pay their own bills and resort to shutting down the government over egos and nonsense! What a world we live in!
