    civil asset forfeiture

    this interview was at the Virginia gun rally yesterday, just wondering what law enforcement and others on marlin thinks of this, I have been hearing these stories for decades and they are usually similar so I don't think everyone is lying,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    its been going on across the land for decades.....for much smaller amounts.....there are several small towns that fund their police departments with seizure funds....not unlikethe old JP system that flourised in the 60's

    I-10 east bound you will be stopped between Baton Rouge and Lafayette LA.

    Drugs! Drugs! Drugs! Any money found over 10,000 is taken and you will never see it again!

    Out of state plates are the hits they stop.

    One of the reasons I did not drive through New York State over Thanksgiving to visit my nephew and is Fiance is that New York State is run by the Communists. They look for out-of-state plates and find a reason to pull us over. I will add that at my age, I don't care for driving long distances during the winter, especially on the busiest travel week of the year. My nephew lives above the "Snow Belt" in NY State. When its dry where I live, they can have 10 inches of snow. All-in-all, its not a very friendly place to go.

    No trial, no jury, no conviction, no recourse. I remember a 60 Minutes expose' 40 or more years ago about some small towns using this for funding as furlong mentioned. What's scary is it's no longer small, isolated departments with little oversight. This was the state police. Federal as well. I understand this is a powerful tool to fight drug and human trafficking and I'm a law and order guy, but without due process, as described in this video, it's nothing more than piracy.

    Don’t know how civil forfeiture is Constitutional. Ignores innocent until proven guilty.

    they also can seize homes and land guns ect. with this theft! if they, "law enforcement" suspect drugs or illegal activity is happening from a residence but do not have proof for arrest, then they can steal your land and home and property with no conviction! I live in SC and here I understand that can't be done. but nothing surprises me, never say never,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Back in the 80's I got stopped early one morning going through Grande Isle headed to Fouchon In a company car for doing 28 in a 25 zone. I learned Cajun Justice real quick, the only way I was getting out of town was to pay fine in cash...................they had to take up a collection on the rig so I could get to the dock.................. Lucky I was good at booray as I won enough money on the hitch to pay the rig folks back........

    The "war on drugs" and civil asset forfeiture are the greatest sources of official corruption in this country -- and the public gets absolutely zero benefit from either.
