Today Bennett and Cas talk about the unfortunate tale of Virgil Griffith, who was recently sentenced to over five years in prison for helping North Korea attempt to evade US sanctions.
The story is absurd for a number of reasons, including, but not limited to:
• generally, as a rule of thumb, don't evade US sanctions
• if, indeed, you plan on continuing with your sanctions evasion plan, don't write it down
• the US sentencing and prison system isn't fair
