Civil Asset Forfeiture - February 12th 2017, 03:27 AM

If you arent from the US, you might think this is ridiculous. If you are from the US, you should still think this is ridiculous.
This is a 5 minute clip from Secular Talk talking about civil asset forfeiture, which is basically a law allowing cops to steal your stuff. Your money is considered "evidence". If you are SUSPECTED of something to do with drugs, they can confiscate your stuff. You can be ACQUITTED of your crime in court, but STILL lose your money. It costs MONEY to go to court and get it back, and how are you supposed to prove you don't have drugs if you DONT have drugs? And there are stories of cops using the money to buy stuff for their departments. Thats obviously corruption.
I could basically sit here and rehash everything Kyle said, but I feel like he hit the nail on the head. Anyway, Trump was apparently convinced by a sheriff that this was ok, even though anyone with a conscience could look at this and be like, "yeah, thats robbery." Unless Im totally missing something, this is such a no-brainer of an issue that it should have been solved yesterday. If there is any sort of sensible reason to allow this, please enlighten me.

Chalk this up as another reason to legalize or decriminalize drugs. Cant confiscate someones stuff if you don't have a reason to.
