Remarkably, federal agencies seized over $5 billion in [Asset Forfeiture in] 2014, which was more than the amount of property burglarized that same year, $3.9 billion … law enforcement is often more focused upon raising revenue, rather than public safety … parents lost their $300,000 house after their son was caught selling $10 of marijuana outside of their home … the presumption of innocence doesn’t exist in a civil asset forfeiture case.
