h/t to Kyle Loveless for carrying the bill
h/t to Joanna Francisco for original post Liberty on Tap article on CAF
When I first learned of Civil Asset Forfeiture, I was shocked that there was even such a thing. I mean, I am not naive about government corruption, but government representatives writing laws allowing government agents to steal property from citizens who have not been convicted of, or even charged with, a crime seemed a bit over the top even for government. Here’s what got me started on this issue: Taken by Sarah Stillman from the August 2013 issue of The New Yorker. To date, it’s the most thorough article I have ever read on the subject. Since Oklahoma was mentioned in this article as one of the states in which Civil Asset Forfeiture is common practice, this issue become high on my radar.
To answer the call to serve as a watchmen on the wall, I have been a grassroots activist for a long time almost fifty years now (and yes I started young!). Philosophically I am a conservative, limited government freedom lover and a co-founder of R3publicans in 2008. I currently live in Oklahoma and serve as Communications Director for OKGrassroots and Constitutional Liberty Coalition but I cut my teeth on politics with Associated Conservatives of Texas and the Traveling Liberty Bell.
