Default U.S. attorney general bans asset seizure by local

Finally SOMETHING I can agree with from Holder but there must be a catch.

U.S. attorney general bans asset seizure by local police

http://news.yahoo.com/u-attorney-gen...195542428.html

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - State and local police in the United States will no longer be able to use federal laws to justify seizing property without evidence of a crime, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Friday.


The practice of local police taking property, including cash and cars, from people that they stop, and of handing it over to federal authorities, became common during the country's war on drugs in the 1980s.


Holder cited "safeguarding civil liberties" as a reason for the change in policy.


The order directs federal agencies who have collected property during such seizures to withdraw their participation, except if the items collected could endanger the public, as in the case of firearms.


Holder said the ban was the first step in a comprehensive review the Justice Department has launched of the program.


But it looks they can still take your guns without evidence of a crime.

Firearms..... Could this be it in a nut shell.... The government doesn't want any more cars, houses, etc to have to auction off... That costs money to do...

Thoughts ??

I'm like Cornbread. Holder hasn't done anything that I've agreed with they whole time he's been in office. This sounds like something I agree with, so there GOT to be a snake in the grass, somewhere!
