This reeks of illegal search and seizure which, I would think, is admissible grounds itself.
State sanctioned theft. They pass a law making it illegal to carry 'too much cash' in your car , Ostensibly trying to thwart the flow of drug
That turns into 'profiling', looking for 'suspicious looking' people along hi ways, resulting in vehicle stops and 'under suspicion' vehicle searches
for cash that they then confiscate. How much is 'too much' is up to the officer. Who's complaining? Legal hi way robbery, sanctioned by the state.
It begins with legislation authorizing the seizure of 'drug money', and ends up being a stretch of toll road for the average citizen with some
vacation money, a birthday gift or bank deposit envelope.
If you do complain , whoops what money, the evidence is 'disappeared'.
Just one example. Another is being left on the side of the road watching your car get towed because you didn't have insurance or registration or
current license. Not a criminal act, just missing papers. Impounded, sorry about that. Now you got a court date, the impound fee, storage fee, towing
fee, court 'fine' and other costs of reinstating your 'papers'.
You haven't been corrected, they don't care if you are poor or between jobs or behind in payments, they just take your car and leave you standing on
the side of the road. Tough s***.
In the Old West it was considered a hanging offense to take a mans horse and leave him on foot. Now they do it By Law, with impunity, across the
