Are the beneficiaries behind this honest or corrupt? What’s your guess?
The “half a million invoices a year” NYPD collects statistically and morally violates the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment which reads, “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”
If the federal goal is to takeover local police forces, civil asset forfeiture is certainly a way to turn the public’s opinion against the police.
Our Republic needs law-abiding local police, not a tyrannical Nazi-like national army to abuse the people.
Infowars calls this legalized theft.
