Civil Asset Forfeiture - Policing for Profit - The Abuse of Everyone's Rights

This video gives a quick overview of the problem of (un)Civil Asset Forfeiture. All they have to do is make an accusation, then take your stuff, no proof is needed, no trial, just an accusation. It has made some district attorneys, cops, etc… go from protectors of our rights to greedy thieving vultures who actively destroy our supposedly inalienable constitutional rights which they swore to uphold.

Video Title: 
Policing for Profit - The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture

From the video summary on their website:

Civil forfeiture laws represent one of the most serious assaults on private property rights in the nation today. With civil forfeiture, police and prosecutors can seize your property and use it to fund their budgets — all without charging you with a crime. Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but with civil forfeiture, your property is guilty until you prove it innocent and law enforcement has a huge [perverse] incentive to police for profit, not justice.

Posted Because: 

(un)Civil Asset Forfeiture has turned many law enforcement officers in to lawless thuggish parasites. This is so against God’s will, and our Founding Documents it’s evil as hell.
