Policing should not be done for profit

Civil asset forfeiture is a law enforcement tool intended to recover the “ill-gotten gains” of illegal activity, such as Ponzi scheme proceeds. Too often, however, it is used against citizens who are not even accused of, much less convicted of, a crime. Worse still, state — and especially federal — rules actually encourage this behavior to pad police budgets.
