YOUR GOVERNMENT CAN STEAL FROM YOU FOR NO WARRANTED REASON

Imagine your government seizing your bank account or confiscating your car or house without ever charging you with a crime. They legitimize their actions by citing the Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform Act of 2000 that allows the feds to seize money and property from suspected gangster, drug dealers and terrorists – and YOU. Jason didn’t even have the right to sell his own fishing boat.

THEIR ACTIONS COMPLETELY VIOLATE THE 4TH AMENDMENT!
Local officers, county deputies and state troopers have been encouraged to act more aggressively in searching for suspicious people, drugs and other contraband. The departments of Homeland Security and Justice spent millions on police training. The effort succeeded, but it had an impact that has been largely hidden from public view:  the spread of an aggressive brand of policing that has spurred the seizure of hundreds of millions of dollars in cash from motorists and others not charged with crimes, a Washington Post investigation found. Thousands of people have been forced to fight legal battles that can last more than a year to get their money back.

Behind the rise in seizures is a little-known cottage industry of private police-training firms that teach the techniques of “highway interdiction” to departments across the country. One of those firms created a private intelligence network known as Black Asphalt Electronic Networking & Notification System that enabled police nationwide to share detailed reports about American motorists — criminals and the innocent alike — including their Social Security numbers, addresses and identifying tattoos, as well as hunches about which drivers to stop.

In the legislative session that just ended, state Rep. Zachary Cook, a young Republican lawyer from the small town of Ruidoso, sponsored HB560, a bill that would end civil asset forfeiture in New Mexico. The measure sailed through both the House and the Senate unanimously, and awaits action by Gov. Susana Martinez. Our government is not entitled to seize the assets of We The People when no crime is committed with no due process. Who do they think they are?

To tell your elected officials to sponsor a bill that would forbid any confiscation of personal property without due process or you will vote against them at their next election and you’ll spread the word online that they approve of this policy of stealing from We The People take action
