Feds reinstate “Equitable Sharing”
This means that local and county and State cops and departments can easily resume confiscating cash from anyone who is pulled over and searched…..and it becomes a FEDERAL case,….But they get as much as 70% of the stolen property.
It is known as Civil Asset Forfeiture. THe cops can take your money or property and you have to prove where it came from….Not that they have to prove that it is ill gotten gains. You are, in essence guilty until proven innocent. ANd to prove your innocence, you get to go up against a Federal Prosecutor.
This, in the days of old, was known as Highway Robbery.
