Cops (especially the subject of the article who is a convicted federal criminal yet amazingly still has a job) are corrupt. Asset forfeiture is used to seize your private cash or goods, without even charging you with a crime. (Hello third world corruption). Oh and drug dogs seem to be completely inept due to wanting to please their handlers. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/...kies-stopped-searched-illinois_n_1364087.html Is this a national trend of increased corruption and abuse of civil rights? Or does it just seem to be more prevalent due to the internet and increased reporting? Discuss.
