Kiss Your A$$ET FORFEITURE GOODBYE

In the state of Oklahoma, the police have the authority to seize your property prior to the conviction of a crime; civil asset forfeiture abuse is a serious threat to civil liberties including, private property rights and due process. The presumption that you are “innocent until proven guilty” is a fundamental element of the U.S. Constitution and should be protected at all costs. The practice of civil asset forfeiture is a tool used that too often negatively impacts innocent people who are merely suspected of illegal behavior.

Pennsylvania on the Cusp of Passing Forfeiture Reform

Current Pennsylvania law allows police to seize property without due process or conviction of a crime. Civil asset forfeiture legally incentivizes policing for profit by allowing the police to keep 100 percent of the proceeds from seizures.
