    Hope he gets his money back.

    No matter what, it's nothing more than legalized armed robbery. And if there was justice instead of law, the ones doing it would be charged with aggravated felony armed robbery when they eventually lose the case. Might make them do a little of that investigation thingy before they just steal with the blessing of the government. I don't normally wish bad luck on others, but I dearly wish anyone engaged in this civil asset forfeiture practice be plagued with cluster swarm kidney stones for the rest of their life, monthly.

    Too bad the law isn't written that the government goon squad in charge doesn't have to put up a cash bond 10X the amount seized, and if the gooberment goons lose in court, the cash bond AND money seized would go to the owner of the cash, along with all court costs and attorney fees. That way, someone whose cash is seized could hire the absolute BEST attorney available and not have to worry about the cost when they win.

    :that:
    It is unpatriotic to use a bad law as an excuse to violate the Constitution.

    4th Amendment
    The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,[a] against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

    Summary seizure of money and goods is in clear violation of the amendment. To argue otherwise is just sad. If the goods are seized after a righteous conviction all is well. Those that engage in this are nothing more than worthless thieves.
    It's because I hate Trump.

    In most of these cases, it's fairly easy to prove where the money came from but justice isn't the governments concern here. They found a loophole that allows them to steal from the citizens. In the case of the grocery store owner in North Carolina, I'm sure that his register receipts could easily prove where the money came from but the government doesn't care. The law says that they can steal his money so they're doing it.

    Every anal dingleberry in the government that had anything to do with this should be lined up against a brick wall facing the wall, and the store owner given a 5 foot boat paddle. The store owner should then use the boat paddle to give them however many licks on their butts as he feels proper, after the 50 swat minimum sentence. Extra boat paddles to be provided at IRS expense to cover any inevitable breakage. Since it's illegal to shoot them, seems fair that they should have to eat standing up and sleeping on their stomachs for a couple of months. I'm a firm believer in aversion therapy.

    Bare butts and rock salt from a 12 gauge at 30 yards would be a better idea!

    With the boat paddle it's up close and personal. You can hear them howl more better with every swing! :up:

    Mississippi city’s $4.1 million police station funded by civil forfeiture

    http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/18/mississippi-citys-41-million-police-station-funded-by-civil-forfeiture/?intcmp=latestnews



    "The Mississippi city of Richland has a new $4.1 million police station, a top-level training center and a fleet of black-and-white Dodge Charger police cars.

    All of it was paid for through civil forfeitures of property and cash seized during traffic stops of what police say were suspected drug runners on Interstate 20.

    Civil libertarians question the constitutionality of civil forfeiture, which has become a key part of revenue for state and local law enforcement agencies nationwide. Under the laws of many states, citizens can be deprived of their property or even cash if police merely suspect the owners to be involved in criminal activity.

    Mayor Mark Scarborough and police chief WR “Russel” James of Richland — population 7,03and located south of Jackson on I-20 in Rankin County — say they’re not only giving city taxpayers a bargain, but they’re also helping do their part to stem the heavy drug trade that travels between Texas and Atlanta on I-20, which eventually trickles down to smaller cities like theirs.

    Lee McGrath, legislative counsel for the libertarian Institute for Justice, said the tide is turning on civil forfeiture in the nation.
