06/03/2005 Archived Entry: "How the feds busted ShadowCrew"
HOW THE FEDS BUSTED SHADOWCREW. It was quite an operation, right down to a dramatic raid with that startling new innovation in weaponry: "MP5 semi-automatic machine guns" (if this Business Week article can be believed).
Judge for yourself whether to believe the rest of the article. Most of the info could have come straight from the feds' PR flacks. Among other things, it treats the ShadowCrew as a "gang," when the site was much more like a bazaar.
Still ... interesting.
