Here is the problem I have with the asset forfeiture laws.
When I was trying to get the AG to prosecute the people who broke the windows of my daughters car, stole her purse and went around town cashing checks (Daughter never did get that straightened out with that damm outfit that ok's checks) , one of my good friends who was a cop pulled me aside and told me straight "The only things they even try to prosecute are drug crimes and murder"
Turned out, apparently he was right, the girl that did all that was never arrested, or prosecuted , but my daughter was out about $500 for damage to her car, and the stolen gift cards.
In fact two weeks later, the same girl was caught breaking into a house over in Florence, and she just skated on that as well.
The AG told me she was a Confidential Informant for drug bust.
So, yea, being able to seize property is corrupting. We need law enforcement to protect us from bad people, not be after ever more and more property by putting all their efforts into enforcing drug laws. There are other laws that need enforcing as well.
