    In some cases, yes.

    In 2014, civil asset forefiture seized more assets than what was burgalrized that year.

    So, in this instance, it appears to be a legit use of the system. Folks obviously guilty who died or fled in cases where millions were bilked, that's not really what we are talking about when we talk about abuses of the system.

    Civil asset forfeiture is nothing more than a "Red Light/Speed Camera" scheme for the Justice departments...as always: follow the money.
