California civil forfeiture curb soundly defeated | The Sacramento Bee

September 11, 2015

Guilty until proven innocent in California.

Legislation limiting law enforcement’s ability to confiscate property from Californians not convicted of crimes failed badly in the Assembly on Thursday, a fate the bill’s author forcefully attributed to a disingenuous campaign by opponents.

The bill’s author, Sen. Holly Mitchell, D-Los Angeles, attributed the bill’s failure to “bullying advocacy tactics” by opponents.  “They have a sense of entitlement to assets that don’t belong to them,” Mitchell said, adding that law enforcement agencies were defending “a way to continue to bolster their budgets.”

    I don’t live in California, nor do I EVER intend to do so. It’s a cesspool of whatever passes these days for liberal “thought.” That the legislature would even CONSIDER such a bill speaks volumes. If you live there, you deserve whatever happens to you.
