Supreme Court will not reconsider Ross Ulbricht’s life sentence!

Fascist Court allows abject Amerikan injustice to stand.

WASHINGTON (PNN) - June 29, 2018 - On June 28, 2018, the Fascist Police States of Amerika Supreme Court revealed it would not re-evaluate Ross Ulbricht’s court case and double life sentence tied to his charges of operating the Silk Road marketplace. Ulbricht’s legal team and family were hoping the recent Carpenter vs. US Supreme Court case would spur court officials to reconsider Ulbricht’s conviction. However, Supreme Court officials didn’t see eye to eye with this reasoning and denied Ulbricht’s certiorari petition.

Ross Ulbricht filed a certiorari petition filed with the Supreme Court this past May. According to Ulbricht’s lawyers, out of 200 cases that day, the court justices denied all of them except for the case Carpenter vs. US, and Ross Ulbricht’s petition. Lawyers had thought the implications of the Carpenter case, which applies to warrantless cell phone searches, would help Ross’s appeal. Six days ago, the Amerikan public learned that the Supreme Court sided with Carpenter’s arguments and ruled law enforcement cannot access cell phone information without a warrant.

One week later, the Supreme Court came to its decision concerning Ulbricht’s case and decided not to re-evaluate the hearing and sentencing. Of course, the Ulbricht family is not pleased with the decision and in a heartbreaking tweet the organization Freeross.org stated, “SCOTUS denied Ross Ulbricht cert petition this morning after holding it pending Carpenter. This is a no on Internet privacy and Ross’s case. Devastating.”

Furthermore, Lyn Ulbricht, the mother of Ross Ulbricht who has been championing for his freedom since the day he was arrested, made this statement: “This is devastating news for Ross and our family.”

To many supporters, the denial was an injustice, especially after the Carpenter vs. US ruling. Many people believe, alongside Ulbricht’s family and attorneys, that Ulbricht’s Fourth Amendment and other Amendment rights were taken from him. Moreover, a double life sentence for operating a website is considered extremely harsh, as many other criminals have received less severe punishments for more heinous crimes.

“It is hard to imagine a better example of the consequences of runaway judicial fact-finding than this case,” explains Ulbricht’s certiorari petition.

Petitioner, a young man with no criminal history, was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole for drug crimes that do not ordinarily carry that sentence, based substantially on numerous factual findings made by the sentencing judge by a preponderance of the evidence.

Even though activists have lauded the SCOTUS decision towards Carpenter, with Ulbricht’s case there has been an extreme injustice in the eyes of many. It means that there may be laws against law enforcement committing illegal acts like warrantless searches; but unfortunately, when it comes to reality and cases like Ulbricht’s, it further solidifies the feeling that Amerikan freedoms are illusionary.
