Retweet donation raises over $150K

7 Jul, 2014

Ver creates a donation program for Ulbright’s legal fund:

I’ll give $10 to @Free_Ross for each RT. If guilty, he’s a hero. If innocent, he needs help.

The post quickly receives over 15,000 retweets, or around $150,000, which Ver pledges will be give to the Free Ross Ulbright campaign. In a statement to Coin Telegraph:

I think that each individual owns their own body, and has the absolute right to put whatever they want into it.  The police, judges, and jail guards who lock people in cages for ingesting  substances without the permission of strangers, are the ones committing evil and need to stop. If Ross Ulbricht  is DPR and helped facilitate the these voluntary interactions,  he is a hero for helping provide the technology that allowed peaceful people to ignore the violent threats from strangers calling themselves politicians and law enforcement. If Ross is falsely accused,  and was not DPR,  then he deserves the best defense money can buy. Either way,  he deserves the support of anyone who is opposed to the war on drugs.
