Detailing the history, reasons for use and the increasing abuses of asset forfeiture, including the differences between criminal and civil asset forfeiture. Under state and federal law, police departments can seize and keep property that is suspected of involvement in criminal activity.
Unlike criminal asset forfeiture, however, with civil forfeiture, a property owner need not be found guilty of a crime or even charged to lose their cash and all property.
According to a new report published by the Institute for Justice most state laws are written in such a way as to encourage police to pursue profit instead of seeking justice. The report grades each state and the federal government on its forfeiture laws and other measures of abuse.
The results are appalling: Six states earned an F and 29 states and the federal government received a grade of D.
Also, a segment remembering the tragic government murder of Donald Scott in 1992 and the nationwide asset forfeiture epidemic!
