Tell you CA Legislators: Help end Civil Asset Forfeiture Abuse!
Civil Asset Forfeiture gives police a free pass to impose on people’s civil rights and disproportionately steal from low-income people of color without even charging someone with a crime. In California alone, police pocketed nearly $600 MILLION from Civil Asset Forfeiture between 2006 and 2013.
It’s legalized robbery. And it’s past time for California to put an end to it.
