This seems like the appropriate place to link to John Oliver's piece on Civil Asset Forfeiture. Apparently the cops can take your stuff based on little more than suspicion that you're using it for illegal purposes, and it's the devil to get it back again - the burden's on you to prove that your money, your house, your car, whatever weren't being used for some criminal purpose.

How this sort of thing isn't an unconstitutional taking is beyond my comprehension.
