Civil Forfeiture in Indiana

Here is a good article about civil forfeiture in Indiana.

How does this issue affect you and your kids?

It could affect you if you are ever accused of a crime. To put you in prison, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty. But to take your house, the prosecutor only needs to establish that you probably committed an offence.

It is affecting your kids because seized funds are supposed to be turned over to public schools, but instead the money has been going to private attorneys and the police departments who pursued the cases.

Are you implying that members of a private, for profit corporation, Indiana Bar Association, and associated trade unions, on pretense of protecting law and order and exercising justice, could have been running racketeering enterprise on behalf of their trade union members and their associates?

Could be an interesting federal RICO based case, unless one comes to a grasp what organization our judges are members of.

So be afraid, be very very afraid.

Surprised? Just another egregious example of the Lawyer-Political Complex in action.
