(Un)Civil(ized) Asset Forfeiture is "Legal" Government Jealousy, Greed, and Theft

Have you ever been in a conversation with a belligerent Drug Warrior or prohibitionist who can’t give you any intelligent responses as to why to end prohibition but instead relies on insults, terrorist threats, lies, etc… but once they learn you are a Christian they have to fall back on the tired and inaccurate perversion that we must do everything our government commands us since (supposedly) all governments are installed by God and God (supposedly) has chosen each ruler for us to obey without question?

So just ask them about slaves, should we have kept slaves since the government OK’d it? Chances are they’ll tell you what they told me, “that was a different time.” Groan. They may even say, “don’t like the law, change it,” which only proves that human law is mutable, and as you probably know many of them are also engaged in the false humility of “I’m only doing my job.”

As I have pointed out, Drug Prohibition desecrates all of the 10 Commandments. But one abomination I have not written much about, or carved out a section here at Christians Against Prohibition, is one of the most easy to understand. Personally I refuse to use the jargon “Civil Asset Forfeiture” since it is so often used to break the 8th and 10th commandments.

  1. Do not steal.
  1. Do not covet another's property or wife.

Until I can figure out how to better organize things, this page will be the entry point and posted under it will be examples of how (Un)Civil(ized) Asset Forfeiture is “Legal” Government Jealousy, Greed, and Theft. How it has created a sick conflict of interest whereby law enforcement officers have become a parasite on humanity. Showing yet another travesty of prohibition, it’s become the foremost excuse to turn our country and world into a police state.

There will also be pages which fit in better other places but still have to do with (Un)Civil(ized) Asset Forfeiture, so there is now a new taxonomy term: (Un)Civil(ized) Asset Forfeiture; it will list (reverse chronologically) all pages tagged with that term.

You may also find the ongoing list at StopTheDrugWar.org to be more up-to-date and containing better written examples. Asset Forfeiture: feed.

Reverend Becker has interviewed people working to undo the damage, so as I can get to it (unless someone emails me links :-), I will post links to their websites and to Dean's interviews.
