The only thing that I find strange is that the article describes asset forfeiture as being something that isnt generally known about. Have people not been paying attention? Ive been coming here for a long time, but I knew about it before I came here. Im pretty sure PBSs Frontline has done at least one story about it, if not more
I don’t think it is widely understood. I remember when the local police were showing off the Corvettes that the state DEA confiscated in the seventies and eighties. It was considered cool and no one really thought it through. Never did anyone raise a voice or question this.
