Cops Caught This Amputee With $400 of Medicinal Weed—So They Took His Car and His Cash

A process known as civil forfeiture allows law enforcement agencies nationwide to seize—and then keep—items they believe are somehow involved in a crime. Law enforcement agencies there get to keep 100% of the proceeds from the property they take. “There's been enormous abuse of civil forfeiture, in part because law enforcement directly profits from civil forfeiture and boosts their budgets,” said Louis Rulli, a University of Pennsylvania law professor. Thanks to those seizures, courts awarded Alabama law agencies $2.2 million across 827 cases, according to the groups’ report. According to court documents, Holt’s property is currently in possession of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, which made the arrest.
