Government goes on a crime spree
If you give police an incentive to steal property…they will steal property.
Welcome to the world of civil forfeiture.
All in a day’s work at the “Justice” Department upside-down world of civil asset forfeiture.
If the government even suspects that you are involved in a crime — without a trial — they can take everything you have. Just because the DOJ suspected that there were a number of drug users in the Caswell’s mom-and-pop hotel, they took the shirt off of their backs.
Indeed, DOJ would never have tangled with the larger corporate motels in the same town.
