    This. When we give cops vague powers like this we dont just give them the power to arrest people who break the law, but also people who get anywhere close to breaking that law who are/will be found innocent. A lot of times its just a power move by a cop to force someone total submission on a person and if you dont the cops gets to beat your ass and charge you with resisting or assaulting him. One of my other favorite catch alls is "interfereing with a police officer/interfering with an investigation"

    The supreme court ruled 9-0 that the Bill of Rights applies to the states as well as the federal government. Huge ruling here.

    The incorporation of the 8th amendment's prohibition on excessive fines has been a pet legal issue of mine. I've been waiting for this to happen.

    That being said, the legal theory behind incorporation of bogus. I think it's a fantastic policy and would strongly favor a constitutional amendment incorporating the bill of rights. I'm not even upset that it's been sone. However, the reasoning behind why it applies to the states is weak.

    The state literally argued that they could seize your vehicle for going 5 mph over the speed limit.

    My hometown newspaper just did a multipart series on civil asset forfeiture here in SC. Itís mind-boggling.

    Iím going to plug it here because Iím proud of the work of the local journalists involved, and I think each part is worth reading.

    Civil asset forfiture is one of the most abused policies in the history of the country. So much of the time it's straight up theft.

    Its the natural result of our worship of law enforcement as a society. We kept bending over backwards to give them everything they said they need to keep us safe and they turned around and used it to **** us in the ass with it. Its all fun and games until you or someone you love is the victim. Leave your prescription medicine in your car ad your wife takes it to the store and gets pulled over. Cop wants to search. No problem, got nothing to hide. Cop finds the prescription pill bottle and looks at the name. Oh thats your husbands not yours..... well your vehicle belongs to me now. Fight it and we can do this the hard way and I can arrest you for felony drug trafficking.










    Keep telling yourselves they are the good guys. Yall know what that is when those cops raid that business. .Nothing justifies that. I dont give a damn what any law or judge says. Literally robbing kids and little old ladies.
