“Common People Do Not Carry This Much U.S. Currency…” – This is How Police Justify Stealing American Citizens’ Money

from Liberty Blitzkrieg:

Americans’ hard earned cash, as well as a wide variety of other valuables, without an arrest or conviction is a disturbing and growing practice throughput these United States. Since cops get to keep the seized funds and use the money on pretty much anything they want, the practice is becoming endemic in certain parts of the nation. The theft is often referred to simply as civil forfeiture, or civil asset forfeiture. Incredibly, under civil forfeiture laws your property is “guilty until you prove it innocent.”

The extent of the problem came to my attention last summer after reading an excellent article by Sarah Stillman in the New Yorker. The article struck such a chord with me, I penned a post highlighting it and addressing the issue, titled: Why You Should Never, Ever Drive Through Tenaha, Texas. That article ended up being one of my most popular posts of 2013.

    That sort of official theft is so blatant that I am surprised that it is not being done by the IRS. Of course, they have their own methods and, as in this case, one is guilty until proved innocent. This kind of bass-ackwards unconstitutional BS should be absolutely outlawed in this country. Those engaging in it should be doing time for their crimes.

    I always considered myself to be rather uncommon. I’ll need your name since I will be filing a lien against you personally for stealing my property.

    Eventually they will get it all & share it amongst themselves as joseph did in Egypt.

    I know this is happening more and more, which is why this is in the news, but this isn’t a new thing they are doing. I first saw a news report on this about 15 years ago. Officials would case the airports, Nashville to TX was a popular on to catch people with “drug money”, except a lot of business people have to buy with cash.

    I disagree with “Common people do not carry this much U.S. currency.”. When people go on vacation, it’s common and I’ve done it myself, especially overseas.
