Giovanetti: Civil Asset Forfeiture Happening Around the U.S.

  • RSS Feed

IPI president Tom Giovanetti discusses some egregious cases of civil asset forfeiture abuse with Phil Cowan on Sacrmento’s 1380 AM – The Answer KTKZ. Civil asset forfeiture has become a revenue stream for law enforcement, says Giovanetti, and if you’re simply suspected or accused of a crime, your property – not just evidence -- can be confiscated. “It’s a violation of due process, it’s a violation of the 4th amendment, and it’s going on all around the country.” Listen to the audio here at 2:52:00 and join the Feburary 9 Civil Asset Forfeiture Summit livestream at 4 pm CT here.
