Then look at the forfeiture incomes of many smaller municipalities along "drug trade" routes. A New Yorker article from the Aug 12-19 issue titled
"Taken" is very, very troubling.
There have been other exposes' on this modern piracy by police and D.A.s and it's not just in LA and TX anymore. They prey on those that are either
actual law breakers (and heck, today they could always find SOME law you're breaking) or on those that are too poor to fight it in court, not that
fighting it will help when you have the D.A. and Judge against you in a rigged court.
The goods and cash taken in in some of these tiny towns is in the MILLIONS and they pay "bonuses" to the cops pulling people over... sometimes as much
as 20 grand in addition to their salaries.
One instance told of someone driving to get dental work done and carrying $6,000 that they had saved over a decade and having it confiscated after a
stop for driving in the left lane too long... or another had their money ripped off and when they complained, the authorities threatened them with
having Child Protective Services come and take their kids... and when they capitulated and gave the cops their money, the cops forgot about CPS, so
the danger to the kids must've been legit... riiiight.
This is in the States, not some third world banana republic... well, the States are turning into a Ripoffcracy pretty fast, here.
The crap going on is getting overwhelming... well, I guess it always has been, but lately... wow.
