Subject: Civil Forfeiture Theft
CRIMINALS AMONG THE CRIMINAL CATCHERS
I hope everyone will watch this video and be so enraged that they will
pass this post on to all their friends.
Police now claim constitution mandated due process rights are NOT
binding on them when they want to take your property.
A procedure where the police declares your property guilty of intent to
participate in a crime and then takes it on the spot without even
accusing you of doing anything wrong.
The Creepy & Illegal Police Tactic Known as Asset Forfeiture is
Explained in This Educational Video
This is a story that sounds like it should be coming out of the old
communist USSR, but no, it is happening right here in what used to be
the land of the free where people had a few rights.
This is a video that discusses the fact that when the gov wants
something you have, it claims that property is suspected of possibly
intending to be engaged in a criminal act. If they want your money,
for example, they claim they think your money is intending to allow
itself to be used in a drug transaction. No proof needed and you do not
need to even be accused of intending to participate.
The property, such as cash, is then charged with the crime of intent to
participate in an illegal act and arrested. If the rightful owner
cannot prove the property had no intent to commit a criminal act, the
police agency that took it gets to keep it.
It is so bad that the Canadian gov’t has warned its citizens NOT to
bring any cash when visiting America.
This is another time that fact is stranger than fiction.
And what do they do with he money? Often, parties, alcohol and even
margarita machines. You are left hungry and crying in the gutter while
the DA’s office and police party with the proceeds from the sale of
The rightful owner never needs to be even accused of doing anything
The 14th amendemnt to the US constitution states that no property can
be taken without due process – first. The federal appeals and the
Supreme Court have stated that this means that the owner must be
charged AND convicted of a crime in which the property was used in the
commission of the crime BEFORE the property can be taken.
The highest courts have stated that taking the property BEFORE
conviction violates the constitution and is illegal.
“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and
subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States
and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce
any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of
the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life,
liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any
person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Without due process first, they can arrest and execute you you, then
have the trial later. That sounds silly, but that is exactly what they
are doing with people’s property.
Well Dorothy, it appears we ain’t in the US anymore because the right
to due process has been taken away.
What amazes me is that people are not suing these agencies in federal
court for taking their property illegally [ without constitutionally
mandated due process ]. After all, when the police ignore the 14th
amendment, they commit a federal crime.
