Mance Rayder is the host of the “Free Man Beyond the Wall” podcast, and the author of “Freedom Through Memedom” and the “Kids Are Not Alright“. Mance details the case of Ross Ulbricht, former volunteer for the Ron Paul campaign and operator of the Silk Road web marketplace, arrested in 2013 for operating the website as a drug kingpin. The infiltration of the site by the DEA, and subsequent arrest of those agents for corruption in his case, is detailed, as well as his two term life prison sentence received for his activities. The count of Murder for Hire was ultimately dismissed with prejudice by the prosecutor in the case, despite the fact that this was the charge used to deny him bail and was brought up by the judge at his sentencing, and various media outlets released articles falsely claiming to be proof of his guilt this crime.
