End Civil Asset Forfeiture - Yes on Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration Act
In order to restore the integrity of the 5th Amendment, end Civil Asset Forfeitures, a process of taking money an property without any due process what-so-ever, support this reform bill which would restore due process prior to taking money or other assets and remove the financial incentives which exist under current Federal law to execute Civil Asset Forfeitures.
Why is this important?
Currently, any law enforcement agency may, without any judicial review, take money and property from individuals. This leaves the individual with no recourse but to hire an attorney and petition the courts to restore your assets. In other words, you may be penalized by and individual law enforcement officer without judicial review or trial of any kind, regardless of guilt or innocence.
