WIRED, “Feds Want to ID Web Trolls who ‘Threatened’ Silk Road Judge,” June 8, 2015

In this courtroom sketch U.S. District Judge Katherine Forrest reads transcripts of speeches made by Mustafa Kamel Mustafa, during Mustafa's sentencing Friday, Jan. 9, 2015, in New York where the Islamic cleric convicted of terrorism charges in a 1998 kidnapping that killed four tourists in Yemen and in failed plans to build a terrorist training camp in the U.S. was sentenced to life in prison. Forrest called Mustafa's actions "barbaric, misguided and wrong" and read aloud the names of his victims, saying: "With the passage of time, their names have not been lost."
