Problems with asset forfeiture
While I have the greatest respect for Sheriff Yeager, I stand against his request for citizens to oppose asset forfeiture changes.
While the sheriff quotes drug money, the fact is, people without committing a crime are having their assets forfeited. I might want to go to a flea market and want to take cash in order to get a better price. If I am pulled over by law enforcement and they search my vehicle and find what they consider a "suspicious" amount of cash, BAM! Forfeited. Since this situation is guilty until proven innocent, I have little to no chance of getting that money back.
It is high time that, outside of obvious money tied to drugs, law enforcement should have to prove more than just their suspicions. While the current law has been found constitutional, that makes the current practice neither moral nor right.
