Why we need the ACLU

This is a story about a black guy, but his color is irrelevant. I'm pretty sure the police didn't get a whopping $38,330,861 fucking dollars in 2003 from only poor black people. No links, but the state doesn't matter either. I've read similar accounts of this happening in other states.

Asset forfeiture laws create huge incentives for law enforcement officers to police for profit. In 2003, the total amount forfeited to Georgia law enforcement was $38,330,861.
