NewMexico Gov Signs Anti Forfiture Bill (Good News) 11th hour

NewMexico Gov Signs Anti Forfiture Bill (Good News) 11th hour

A few hours ago, Governor Susana Martinez of New Mexico signed groundbreaking legislation to strengthen the protection of individual rights in her state. The bill, H.B. 560, requires a criminal conviction in order for law enforcement to be able to use civil asset forfeiture to seize private property.

Civil asset forfeiture is the process by which government agents can take your property if you are suspected of a crime, but without formally filing charges. In effect, the government charges the property itself with a crime, and the burden is then on the citizen to prove his property’s innocence. Such broad powers for law enforcement clearly violate the Fifth Amendment right to due process. Law enforcement can all too easily abuse this procedure as a way to persecute innocent citizens or to self-fund their offices with forfeited assets.

Thank You, Governor Martinez! | FreedomWorks

I've looked at close to a hundred of your crazy ranting posts and this is the only one that makes any sense. In fact, it's right on.
