This Pernicious, Un-American Procedure Must Be Prohibited Now!

There’s a pernicious procedure called civil asset forfeiture that Congress should have banned years ago. Using it, the government can seize your house, your car and your cash, even when you’ve done nothing wrong—i.e., you haven’t been charged with, much less convicted of, a crime. And this happens more often than you think.

Since Congress hasn’t taken care of this, the Supreme Court should unambiguously rule that the process is utterly unconstitutional.
