Did you know police can just take your stuff if they suspect it's involved in a crime? They can!
It’s a shady process called “civil asset forfeiture,” and it would make for a weird episode of Law and Order.

Blue Lives Matter really pisses me off. Cops are great until they legally take your cash because you "might" do something bad with it. Then they can do whatever the fuck they want with it. My whole body hurts thinking about that FUCKER and his shit eating grin while he holds that guys money and takes a picture. Even the dog has a cunt face in the photo. Bad cops are truly worse than any thug criminal or terrorist. You know exactly what to expect from ISIS, the bloods and the crypts and MS-13. If you encounter a policeman the best thing that can happen is they do their job and protect you from crime but they could just as easily and legally give you the gang/terrorist treatment and you can't do anything about it.
I wonder if the Montgomery cops had a liquor license for those kegs of beer and that margarita machine? If not then can -seize- steal some more money and cars from people driving to place that doesn't have a liquor license.
Police officers being too busy raiding art gallery funk nights to properly investigate grand theft auto is just... is just Peak Detroit. Like, believe me, I was born and raised here in Detroit, this is just the most Detroit thing I've ever heard.
All human beings have the need for self-determination, this is a basic need comprised of:
competence- the ability to do something well;
interconnection- symbiotic, authentic relationships; and
autonomy- full self-ownership to make choices about your own life.
It's surprising to see John Oliver casually and generically supporting the police, especially in this video. By definition of their job, they are required to disrespect self-determination. This is traumatizing. Police officers routinely get PTSD. Just like those in the military. Even people who work in slaughtering factories for cows get PTSD from it. So surely, hurting people and being hurt is traumatizing for everyone involved.
Why would anyone want to participate in this toxicity? Well, in being traumatized, sometimes we completely go out of wack and misunderstand many of our own reactions, and our own needs. This starts with child abuse and is reflected in the structure of government. Many people live in fear of government and are disempowered, imprisoned in their daily lives by trying to avoid prison for being autonomous. Ironic, really. It's amazing that anyone is willing to live this way. Things will only get worse.
"A 64-year-old put his life savings in his carry-on. U.S. Customs took it without charging him with a crime." http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/a-64-year-old-put-his-life-savings-in-his-carry-on-us-customs-took-it-without-charging-him-with-a-crime/ar-AAy4kcL?li=BBnb7Kz&ocid=UE09DHP
This is something most people don't know about where our government was dealing cocaine into East LA to fund a war. They went after the reporter who wrote about it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCdvG8fzrsM Killing the messenger.
I'd like to hear from any of the 1500 people who thumbed down on this vid. Did they not like Oliver's presentation? Did they not believe what he was saying? Or were they all officers of the law who've used this very tactic in their duties? I'd find it hard to believe that any of these 1500 AGREE with the abuse this "allowance" provides against ordinary Americans WHO HAVEN'T BROKEN THE LAW.
But most importantly
They take your personal belongings while telling you that the items are “under arrest” which turns out is basically them legally stealing your stuff without you having much to do when it comes to getting it bacc
Wakey, wakey, John Oliver. There may be an update due:
The case involves Tyson Tmbs.
Let's be blunt. Republicans aren't white. All of the Republican states had a lot of mixing between whites and Indians. They're light-skinned mongrels. They have nothing to do with pure whites. Pure whites hate police brutality. Look at Europe. They don't worship cops like the hicks in the southern part of America do. The mutt Indians in America are keeping it backward. They love wars, they don't mind police corruption, and they worship evil corporations. White people tend to be left-wing and progressive. The entire continent of europe is left-wing. They believe in welfare and lots of regulations to limit corporations. The hicks in the Republican party believe that corporations should be able to get away with murder. They don't have the same values as pure whites and all of the civilized people of the world. It's time for the white man to cut off money to the Republican and southern states. That's the only way to civilize them and make them act normal. Pure whites aren't morons who worship cops and guns and call people "libtards." Mutt Indians are the ones who do that.
It's unconstitutional, why are they not being sued over it? Where are the civil activists? oh, they're too busy with being politically correct to address any real criminal issues going on in this country.
The nazis did the same thing to the Jews. When the elected government breaks the oath to uphold, and defend the constitution they are traitors to the people, and the democratic government. An attack on the constitution is an act of war against the people of the United States. The fact that our own elected government is doing this is the worst type of attack, but an act of war nonetheless. For decades we have chosen to do nothing, and look at what they've done to our country. As long as the top 1% are allowed to govern 1% is what the people will be left with after they've raped, lied, molested, and manipulated 99% of society without fear of consequence. People like this has brought ruin to societies throughout history. It is the people's duty to stop this tyranny, and corruption because we are all that's left.
They should do an episod on storage facilities. They do legalize crime too. Look it up. If you fall behind payment they can seize an entire household worth of property (worth 10s of thousands) and sell it for 100 dollars to anyone. It is insane.
How to become bitcoin trader? Exactly like Bitcoin, multiple digital currencies exist in the marketplace. So if you prefer to buy a few other currencies which aren`t available on Indian Exchange than you can utilize Bittrex. All you have to do is locate an exchange that you favor. Cryptocurrency exchanges have a massive potential to modify peoples minds and opinions concerning cryptocurrencies generally speaking and their application in actual life. So even in the event the exchange is attacked, its still true that you have your money. Furthermore, the exchanges prepare each and every industry for Bitcoin expansion. Existing stock exchanges will also compete to be able to fulfill the users configuration requirements. Sooner or later later on, the prices will grow more equal, meeting somewhere in the middleyour profit is equivalent to the quantity of convergence. No matter how far it is from Kijun, it is likely to return and test that level at some point. The amount of bitcoin is perpetually changing. In the US, it is 1000 USD. Whats even better, seek the services of a seasoned lawyer or at least ask for an in depth consultation. So youve read the newspaper about the meteoric growth of crypto currencies including Bitcoin or Ripple. Then coming up with 1000s of exchange rates simply to go out and get groceries is nearly impossible. Many cities around the world provide a bitcoin ATM where you are able to trade cash for bitcoin. The cryptocurrency world isn`t efficient.
