New Nebraska Law Taking on “Policing for Profit” Via Asset Forfeiture Now in Effect
Sovereign Solutions Editor’s Note:
There is not much more certain than the injustice contained within the concept of “LEGALLY” taking an individual’s property without proof of probable injustice. There needs to be a court order, plain and simple.
Or so at least one would think.
Unfortunately, many Americans do not know about civil asset forfeiture. Or worse, those that do may not know of some of the positive developments appertaining.
Please give the featured article a read. There are useful, practical solutions to these terrible problems. We, as individuals, have a number of options, and one of those is attempting to utilize the individual states’ statutory and compliance machinery when it comes to these things.
To be clear, these insidious programs DO achieve something; that something, however, is nothing all that good for you and me:
“Asset forfeiture laws incentivize “policing for profit” on one hand, and dubious state-federal partnerships on the other.”
It is good to see some of the success stories found here. Maybe more of the this can come about as individuals discover the salutary effects of seeking solutions as opposed to admitting premature defeat.
