The Crime of Civil Forfeiture

Although more than 16 minutes long, this video of John Oliver discussing civil forfeiture is well worth every second of your time.  It’s not only revealing, it’s also quite funny.  (Writing “funny” about the banana-republic practice of civil forfeiture seems odd, but the humor works well in this video without detracting from its serious message.)

Send this video to friends, family, co-workers, anyone who might conceivably watch it.  (HT Alex Tabarrok)

(The only good that I see ever coming from civil forfeiture is that it reveals more clearly than does any other practice of the modern state the true, predatory nature of government.)
