Wow! Meet The Silk Road Employee That The Dread Pirate Roberts Allegedly Tried To Murder

The alleged murder target of a secretive online drug kingpin was a 47-year-old semi-pro poker player and self-proclaimed former heroin addict who was caught with $27,000 worth of cocaine.

On Thursday, court documents filed in a Maryland district court revealed that Curtis Clark Green confessed to being an administrator of the Silk Road, an anonymous online drug marketplace. Known online as “chronicpain,” Green was a vocal member of the drug community who worked closely with site leader, the Dread Pirate Roberts, and frequently shared personal anecdotes and detailed advice on using and dealing illegal substances.

Early last month, federal authorities detained the man they believed to be the Dread Pirate Roberts, arresting 29-year-old Ross Ulbricht in San Francisco and accusing him of narcotics trafficking, money laundering and hiring hitmen for the murder of two people. One of those targets was Green, a grandfather and former paramedic who also sold oxycodone and other painkillers on Silk Road.

In a plea agreement signed Thursday, Green admitted to possessing, with the intent to distribute, more than a kilogram of cocaine, which he had accepted from an undercover United States postal inspector in January. An earlier criminal complaint from October against Ulbricht presented the same storyline surrounding an individual identified only as “the Employee.” That complaint alleged that Ulbricht had become aware of a Silk Road employee’s contact with federal agents and had attempted to pay a total of $80,000 to have that individual killed because of that interaction. Green’s real and online identities were not revealed in the original complaint.

By pleading guilty, Green acknowledged that he not only handled drugs but also worked as an administrator on Silk Road where he went by the handles ”Flush” and “chronicpain”. While he never knew his alleged boss by his real name, Green’s admissions will serve as another piece of the puzzle in authorities’ growing case against Ulbricht, who they say ran a $1.2 billion (sales) online drug operation and would do anything–even commit murder–to keep it running.

Ron Paul fan

“I’ve always had libertarian views,” Green wrote in Nov. 2012 a few weeks after the U.S. presidential election. “Ron Paul has been my guy for years.”

Ron Paul on his son Rand Paul:
"he does a lot of things similarly, but I think he does everything better. Than I have done over the years,"


Government doesn't like competition, what were they thinking that we live in a nation that values free enterprise or something?

Personally, being twenty + years clean and sober, I hate drugs, and dealers of them too while they are dealing their death. I don't want EITHER government nor anyone selling poisons: it's self centered GREED at the expense of others health and life, and in my heart I hurt for ALL INVOLVED.

As a Christian I don't live your life for you, nor judge you upon your mistakes. When I look down on you, it's only because my arm is out as I offer you a hand back up again. There IS NO HIERARCHY of sin in Gods eyes, it's either righteous or unrighteous, right or wrong. So a murder and a petty thief both end up with the same result either way; accept Jesus and change within= eternal life; or, don't repent and die in sin.

Just my belief, not an accusation towards you or a pushing of my beliefs upon you, if I came off wrong it was not by intent.

Look at it this way, if drug

Look at it this way, if drug use was OK for the last 3 presidents, why is it not OK for the average American.

I don't dislike the users per say

That would be self hating.
I hate what is the root cause by those who deal them.
I'll never order another to do or not do anything, that's decidedly un libertarian.
You want to drink and befuddle your head, go for it. I'll be here when you've had enough.

when the (al) CIA (duh) has dealt BILLIONS of FRNs worth of Coke and other drugs in the USA for decades. The real criminals are never touched while the small fries get fried.

I understand trying to whack people is wrong, so I'm not making excuses for the guy, but damn - what about the REAL criminals (including the Bankers who launder the big drug money, and the US Govt. who provides the guns and transport of it???)
