On this week’s Off the Grid, I sound off about civil asset forfeiture. Federal laws allow law enforcement agencies to seize our houses, cars, cash or property without even charging us with a crime.
Shouldn’t the Fifth Amendment be good enough to protect American citizens from this type of thing? Let me know what you think.
