Thanks to Matt I just learned about this. I guess I’m fortunate that I’ve never had to find out about it first hand. Jeesh that would be crazy bad. But look at this story……
Here is that article. Although it may be behind a paywall. Sorry.
I’m just shocked, but honestly not even that much. I already knew police could seize your assets on mere “suspicion” of wrong doing. They don’t even have to charge you. If that isn’t theft then I’m really not sure what is.
But you all probably already know all this. I’m just now learning.
Truthfully, I like the cops where I live. They have always been nice to me, treated me kindly, helped me out. I have zero complaints. I am actually very grateful that I feel no fear having to call them for something. I just wish this was the case for everyone, everywhere.
