    Entertaining story there, I never followed the saga too closely IRL as I was annoyed at the time that silk road got hammered but the peados on hard candy just carried on carrying on!!!

    thanks wired, fuck me if i read a long article like this in this stupid format lol

    i cleaned it a bit and put it on pastebin:
    Code:
    http://pastebin.com/N8rk6a4D
    and for those who would prefer to listen to it like me (while doing something else), i transferred the text to speech (1h 14 min):
    Code:
    http://www.fromtexttospeech.com/texttospeech_output_files/0061646001431718907/6230038.mp3
    not perfect, but it's surprisingly good

    I read both part 1 and now part 2 of this Wired story.

    Interestingly, it turns out that the 'star of the story' that Wired ran, Agent Force, actually spent more time stealing from the government and Silk Road than he did investigating the case!

    His corruption and theft, and that of his colleague Agent Bridges now threaten the entire case and could provide grounds to squash the conviction against Ulbricht...

    Yeah this bit shocked me a bit.. It would be a funny ending if this results in Ross getting off or a reduced sentence.. I wasn't aware of the full story until I read these 2 wired posts.
