    Re: SCOTUS 14: Confirming a Rabid Partisan to Own the Libs

    I think everyone who has XM access should listen to Smerconish's hour on asset forfeitures from yesterday. It's out of control. There were several cases where the cops had a drug dog sniff a wad of cash and they confiscated the cash without any other charges other than something like a speeding ticket. No drugs found, no paraphernalia. Just cash. That's just two of the cases he reviewed.

    I've always hated the use of drug dogs because there is no way for them to be reliable. They're easily trained and can give false positives.
    Second, I don't like asset seizures. I think it's an unconstitutional money grab by the cops.
    Code:
    As of 9/21/10:         As of 9/13/10:
    College Hockey 6       College Football 0
    BTHC 4                 WCHA FC:  1

    I'd rather not the excessive judgement to begin with.

    The lack of adjudication and guilty finding, yet taking, is disturbing. No. It's wrong.

    As would we all, but you raised the hypothetical.

    Civil judgments awarded by a finder of fact are already reviewed on appeal under a standard of review that is well set out in law.

    But go ahead and keep trying to argue with the lawyers on the board that you've found Pandora's box.
