Policing for Profit

The Institute for Justice's latest cause is detailed in this just released report on civil forfeiture, which includes a state by state grading system.  Asset forfeiture laws have been and are being used to beef-up police department budgets.  In case you didn't already know, the laws make it easy to confiscate private property without a guilty conviction.


The Institute for Justice was responsible for bringing to the national spotlight the issue of the misuse of eminent domain for economic development. If you believe in freedom, please donate to this worthwhile organization.
