Civil Asset Forfeiture – the vehicle through which government can legally take your money even though you haven’t been charged with a crime or had due process – is wreaking havoc in America.
The Daily Signal explains more:
The letter, sent August 11 to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, calls on the agency to return $29,500 the Internal Revenue Service seized from Frederick-based dairy farmers Randy and Karen Sowers through civil asset forfeiture.
But, it seems the federal government decided to make an example out of the Sowers according to The Daily Signal:
Though the Sowers had some of their money returned, the couple filed a petition with the government last month asking for the remainder of it back.
