Police are more dangerous than criminals

One thing I’ve been advocating for a long time – and firmly believe – is that the police are utter scum and more dangerous to our way of life than so-called “criminals”. We’d be better off without a police force. And now it seems evidence is emerging in my favour as it turns out American police have stolen more assets from people than burglars.

Officers can take cash and property from people without convicting or even charging them with a crime — yes, really! — through the highly controversial practice known as civil asset forfeiture. Last year, according to the Institute for Justice, the Treasury and Justice departments deposited more than $5 billion into their respective asset forfeiture funds. That same year, the FBI reports that burglary losses topped out at $3.5 billion.
