AKA "Steal anyone's money we can because we can...We are cops and because drugs".
Seems that everyone is finally figuring this out....
Some commentors think I am overly negative about this practice. Perhaps I am. They seems to feel that it is OK, if it catches one drug smuggler ...I think that it needs revision if it inconveniences even one innocent person.
This is theft, plain and simple. No one should have to account for the source of the money they carry unless they have been PROVEN to have committed a crime and it can be proven that the money or goods was/were from profits from illegal activities.
Anyone involved in such schemes to steal from the citizens of this country should be charged with theft....Officer or government official or whatever. No immunity should apply.
