    Do you live in a world so paranoid that the police are all trying to plant things on people? If that was really the case, then you would have to live in fear of going to jail every day. The property loss would be the least of your worries. 10 - 20 upstate for a kilo would be more concerning.

    Here it is. DOJ can seize your cash/ assets with zero evidence/charges even in states where the practice is illegal

    According to a report prepared for the Senate Judiciary Committee, at least 90 percent of the property that the federal government seeks to forfeit is pursued through civil asset forfeiture. And although forfeiture is intended as punishment for illegal activity, over 80% of the people whose property is seized under civil law are never even charged with a crime according to one study of over 500 federal cases by the Pittsburgh Press. For this reason, critics say, the system can run roughshod over the rights of innocent property owners--and fail to distinguish them from the guilty.

    Well we have know all along that Sessions does not really care about the rule of law - he just makes up things as he goes along.

    Shameful - just shameful.

    Well that's why we have a Constitution. Because the government isn't that trustworthy.

    Jeff Sessions is an evil man.....no wonder Trump picked him to wreck our Justice Dept.

    Sen. Rand Paul and Rep. Tim Walberg have also introduced reform legislation at the federal level. As one conservative writer at the*Washington Examiner*opined:
    “It’s not a pro-police program; it’s a constitutional evil. It gives law enforcement the right to strip Americans who’ve not been convicted of any crime—and in many cases, not even formally charged—of their properties, including cash, cars, homes, airplanes, boats, etc.” --- DKos

    "under forfeiture laws in most states and at the federal level, mere suspicion of wrongdoing is enough to allow police to seize items permanently."

    I'm against it. What happened to the 5th amendment?
