Thread: AG Sessions wants increased asset forefiture

    AG Sessions wants increased asset forefiture

    Speaking to the National District Attorneys Association conference in Minneapolis on Monday, Sessions said he’s issuing a new directive that will, among other things, aim to increase civil asset forfeiture.

    “[W]e hope to issue this week a new directive on asset forfeiture — especially for drug traffickers,” Sessions said. “With care and professionalism, we plan to develop policies to increase forfeitures. No criminal should be allowed to keep the proceeds of their crime. Adoptive forfeitures are appropriate as is sharing with our partners.”

    Police already seize a lot of assets from people. A recent report from the inspector general at the Justice Department, for example, found that the Drug Enforcement Administration alone seized more than $3.2 billion in assets from 2007 to 2016.

    I have nothing against seizures against dope dealers, but taking from honest citizens and making it almost impossible to get their money back is BS.

    I agree. It's too bad our great President picked such a ####ty AG.

    I do wish AG Sessions would look at the Clinton investigation and do the right thing, as well as the states that are sanctuary and violating drug laws.

    As for money, I think it's fine to take the money and freeze it during a trial, and take it if it has been adjudicated as illegally obtained. Other than that, I'm not so good.
    There are only two possibilities; one is that we are alone in the universe, the other is that we are not.
    Both are terrifying.

    20 years in the Senate may have gotten him to be too friendly with his cohorts, and it seems it shriveled his manhood.
    He recuses himself from important tasks in investigations while he goes after the easy shot.

    By the way your sarcasm toward Trump is noted.

    IMO the Senate is more a clubhouse full of people who's greatest job is to see that they stay as members.
    They stopped working for America a long time ago.

    I do. I really don't think there should be any such thing as "civil asset forfeiture". If I haven't been found guilty of a crime leave your grubby hands off of my stuff.

    Good point. Seizure after conviction.
