Hitmen on the Darkweb/Darknet/scaryplace

I have been convinced for a while that all of these hitmen-for-hire/murder-for-hire websites on the darknet are just fed honeypots/undercovers/trusted informant wanting to bust criminals that have watched one too many Hollywood movies.

This is why you will usually hear the victim saying they were contacted by law enforcement in regards to a hit order being placed on a website (their website)

Blackwater (now Academi) sure did change their advertising...

Why does the media push this story?

CBS national news dedicated an entire video to this subject.

Apparently 48 Hours did a TWO HOUR special on murder-for-hire websites on the darknet. Here’s a preview.

Yes, it is very cringe. Especially when they act like they saved the day and have stopped multiple murders.
