AWFUL TRUMP: DOJ To Use Asset Forfeiture Even In States That Banned It
Quote:The Department of Justice announced on Wednesday its official stance on civil asset forfeiture, which includes expanding the policy into states that have banned the practice.

A directive from the DOJ explains that the department will use the policy toward any property confiscated by state and local law enforcement if it feels that it relates to a federal crime. It then lists various "safeguards" for the practice as well as how people can try to regain their property. Eventually, the directive reaches a chilling note: the DOJ's policy "supersedes" states that have prohibited the use of asset forfeiture.

Horrible idea. Not a fan of Sessions.

If the states don't support it they won't be able to enforce it.

Trump is far from perfect. Also far from controlled opposition. Like having Sean Hannity doing your foreign and national policy.

Men tend to paint themselves in a better light when they're about to die; and Texas ground is filled with fools who thought they were quicker
