Government’s Seizing Money Using Drug Law but 4 out of 5 Are Never Charged with a Crime

Civil Asset Forfeiture

Civil forfeiture in the United States has been a controversial legal process in which law enforcement officers take assets from persons suspected of involvement with crime or illegal activity without necessarily charging the owners with wrongdoing. The new March 29th, 2017 Department of Justice’s Inspector General just issued a report and has stated that since 2007, the DEA has seized $3.2 billion in cash from people who weren’t charged with any crime. These pretend “representatives” in congress will not protect the people they claim to “represent” when it comes to money. This is out right theft.
