“Hey, here’s a great crime-fighting idea: Let’s give local police and prosecutors the authority to seize cash, cars, homes and other property from private citizens – without a court convicting those citizens of any crime. Without, in fact, even charging those citizens with any crime. Then let the authorities sell the goods and keep the proceeds for themselves.”
“Takings: Few Americans are probably aware that law enforcement authorities are free to seize their property even when they’ve done nothing wrong. But it’s a growing racket that needs to be shut down now.”
“In recent years, policing for profit – which looks a lot like a criminal enterprise -has raked in the spoils. The Justice Department’s forfeiture fund has gone from $94 million in 1986 to more than $1 billion today. State and local authorities also benefit richly, but it’s hard to know to what extent, as not all report their ‘profits’. We do know Philadelphia alone takes in about $6 million a year.”

So my friends please be safe and don’t take money with you if you are on the road. Just in case you might be robbed or stopped by the police. If I would have to choose the lesser of two evils, I would prefer to be robbed. At least you can call 911!
