Government-Authorized Theft

This is the kind of case where I think most rational people would agree that a local government has run amok.  Please take 3 minutes out of your life to see the danger that asset forfeiture has become.  Asset forfeiture is the power of law enforcement to confiscate assets involved in an alleged crime, sell them and keep the money, even if the crime doesn't get prosecuted or if the person whose property it is had anything to do with the crime.  This is a travesty and I'm so grateful for groups like the Institute for Justice who fight these fights.
