The Free Ross Ulbricht petition managed to gain 100,000 signatures

The petition to "free Ross Ulbricht" has gained 100,000 signatures, only 50,000 left from the targeted number of signatures.

The petition to “bring Ross Ulbricht home” started by his mother 4 months ago has reached a notable milestone. It managed to get 100,000 signatures just hours ago, as shown in a tweet on a Twitter account dedicated to voice “justice for Ross”, @Free_Ross.

Ulbricht is currently serving a double life sentence plus 40 years, without the possibility of parole for the infamous Silk Road website that he created years ago when he was 26 years old.

After the US Supreme Court denied Ulbricht’s petition to review life sentence, his chance to be able to “live normal” outside the bar one day is completely vanished.

His mother, Lyn Ulbricht, however, is not willing to give up yet to fight for a clemency for his son. She decided to start a petition on that aims to collect 150,000 signatures to propose for a second chance for his son to the president of the United States.

Ulbricht himself also has his own Twitter handle, @RealRossU, which is managed by his family as he’s not allowed to get an online access from the prison. So instead, he tells his family what he wants to say to his Twitter followers and they will post it on his Twitter account on his behalf.
