It's crazy to think in America your assets can be taken and held into perpetuity, even after acquittal.

^^Correct! Your government wants your stuff! Revolt against it! Rise up and don't take it anymore. Remember, there is no collusion and MAGA!

One of the things that turned me off of governor colyer was his veto of a bill which paid back thousands of dollars that WyCo sheriffs stole from a topeka resident and then did a federal DEA adoption asset forfeiture. Civil asset forfeiture is horrible policy that enriches law enforcement at the expense of the citizens.
