“There’s no crime necessary. They can seize the cash and property if they suspect there may be a crime” Civil Asset Forfeitures

Quad City attorney calls forfeiture laws “legal theft” “Legalized theft is what it really amounts to because they really don’t need that much to go on and then they can seize somebody’s assets. Then, that poor individual has to try and get their assets back and sometimes it can be next to impossible. It stacks the deck so unbelievably in favor of the government,” Hanna said.
