Unfortunately, the more forfeiture laws legislatures enacted, the less attention police seem to pay to major criminals. Representative Henry Hyde of Illinois noted in June 1993 that 80 percent of the people whose property is seized by the federal government under drug laws are never formally charged with any crime. Representative John Conyers of Michigan declared at a June 1993 congressional hearing: “A law designed to give cops the right to confiscate and keep the luxury possessions of major drug dealers mostly ensnares the modest homes, cars and hard-earned cash of ordinary, law-abiding people.”
Just cause hes a cop doesnt mean he doesnt have to pay for his crimes. Why do you stick up for cops so much, and believe that they are always right no matter what? You have nothing to say about the evidence hes planting on people? This guy is just as much of a criminal as the rest of them locked up. This guy is lucky he only got 24 days. He should be bowing down kissing the ground right now.

I will play devils advocate in this story. What if those the two guys he set up on drug charges; one was a child molester that got off because the legal system fail and the other was implicated in several robberies but there was never enough evidence to arrest and convict? Maybe thats why he only got 24 days. We all talk about how messed up the legal system is and how someone should do something about it. Maybe this was his way of "doing something" about it. So what I'm asking is what you guys think about it. Would you guys be able to plant evidence on someone you know was involved in criminal activity, especially when it caused pain to many people?

Actually it seems that ATS manages to find the rare and few Cops who spoil it for the rest.
Without cops and the law most of YOU would be dead by now as chaos would ensue. And the weak are always the first to go!!
