Our federal, state, and local governments are raking in billions of dollars by seizing cash and taking property of innocent citizens and selling it in order to fill their coffers.
Civil asset forfeiture laws represent a serious abuse of private property rights, and this gross abuse will continue if we don’t act now.
Using civil asset forfeiture, police and prosecutors can seize your property, sell it, and use the proceeds to fund agency budgets. They also work with feds under an “equitable sharing” scheme to pocket a portion of the proceeds from the seizure, enabling local law enforcement to circumvent state law and continue to profit from civil asset forfeiture.
The owner of the property doesn’t need to be guilty of a crime, so authorities are able to seize your car, home, money, or valuables, with or without a warrant, even if you are innocent.
Referred to as “legal thievery,” civil asset forfeiture has become big business for government at all levels, and it is currently generating billions of dollars annually.
There are many examples of innocent people being stripped of their money and property by federal, state, and local authorities, without due process, and it is time to fight back.
