End Asset Forfeiture Abuse

The Institute for Justice just published a video critical of abusive asset forfeiture. “Civil forfeiture is a little-known legal device that allows law enforcement officials to take your property, sell it and pocket the proceeds—even if you have done nothing wrong,” IJ notes. Thankfully, we substantially reformed asset forfeiture in Colorado in 2002—although now police officers sometimes evade the state law by collaborating with federal agencies (a topic worthy of further research).
