Policing for Profit: Innocent until proven guilty (unless you have a huge wad of cash in the car)

Cops Can Confiscate Money And Property From Law Abiding Citizens
Prepare to be outraged.

If you've ever traveled with a large sum of money, police can legally confiscate it. It's a burgeoning trend known as "policing for profit," and law enforcement agencies are using it to bolster their budgets.

George Reby, a New Jersey-based insurance adjuster was pulled over for speeding while driving through Putnam County, Tenn. several months ago. The officer who pinched him asked him if he had any money, asked to search the car, and took more than $20,000 in cash from Reby.

The worst part of this article are the comments from Paul D. The best part is all of the liberty-loving people trashing Paul's point of view.

This will just be used to

This will just be used to confiscate money during a currency collapse and bank run, and it will just be a pretense to do so - already in place thanks to George 'New World Order' Bush Sr.

Likewise, it could be used to confisicate gold, as was done already once in America - like it should never have been.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Remember your rights

You CAN refuse to allow the cop a search of your car. When he asks, tell him no, he will need a warrant. Most times they won't bother. Unless of course you look intoxicated or the car smells like illegal substances, or you have something illegal in plain sight.

This article also reminded me of this story

that we on this site were discussing a couple of months ago:


With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Here we are again

the story of Nottingham the Sheriff and his men confiscating wealth from the people. All we need now is Robin Hood to save us.

Any Robin Hood nominations for...
