    Well'p..... I learned my asset forfeiture law in Minn'DeSoda many yrs ago, hence my viewpoint.

    Turns out New Mexico is still perty much like I remember the law being in my yout', MN is still very highly rated in that the cops can't spend it ever and that for it even to go into the general fund it must be all settled out in court etc.

    And from there there are all sorts of levels and steps down to and including states like TX where it's basically 'Treasure' as in "you bust it, you spend it!"

    And people wonder why I scoff at "laws"

    LOL

    My authority was under Federal statue Title 21USC 881.

    This statue is applicable in all 50 States. It trumps any State seizure statue.

    It was on the books when I was hired on in 1969.

    My authority was, "I worked in a gunstore and my boss was a sergeant of the local PD" LOL..... in other words, I got NUTTIN!...... except hearsay from working alongside the officers who were my friends.

    I was wrong, shoulda' not opined in this case.

    I guess the cops get to take the money and buy stuff with it.

    George...no kiddos here. All are grown and have have families of their own. On one hand, it would be nice to have gotten a big 'stimulus' check. On the other hand, I'm glad I didn't.

    Hope all is well with you! -Al

    it cost the us gov'nt nothing
    the fed reserve banks PAY FOR THE PRINTED PAPER.
    the fed reserve banks are PRIVATE COPORATIONS that make tons of money in interest by handling us currency.
    paid no income taxes since day one(1919/1923 aprox) a couple years ago this was pointed out in congress.

    that would be the big difference in a
    US NOTE (currently circulated paper currency)
    and a
    silver certificate , currency with backing of pre 64.

    "Money" has no intrinsic value, it's just a way of keeping score...... no different than writing an IOU on a piece of paper

    Yea! What Dave said.
    Last Sat. I tried to visit the Mom and Pop restaurant. Coney Shop Closed. Nick and Julie had been their for 30 yrs. Gone.
    So I tried Burrito Express. Small family taco shop. Really good food. Like Taco Shops in San Diego. Closed.
    So I drive down the road. Ok let's try Penn Station. Closed.....

    Detroit and Wayne County MI are run this way. Piss off a cop, just the slightest. Your ride is gone. Go to court(don't ever show up in court in MI without a lawyer. That pisses of the Judge right away. You are done.), 3 mos later the cops already sold your ride.
    They use that trick with the dog. Dog sniffs money, cop yanks on leash, it's drug money. You are lucky to get out alive....
    Huge story in Detroit News. I just realized, a few top cops in Wayne County have the Wuhan flu or died....Guess, that's how the News made this come out....and no State Legislature has any balls....to change the law.

    If the check shows up here I'm going to rebarrel my 722. It used to shoot lights out but has gotten pretty tired over the last 60 years.
