An Illustrated Guide To Civil Asset Forfeiture

This cheerfully drawn comic from the Daily Signal does an excellent job highlighting the insanity of civil asset forfeiture.

It begins with a quintessentially American premise: a young person setting out on his own, all worldly possessions in hand, to start a new life as an adult.

Far be it from me to spoil the rest:

If such stories seem unbelievable (it is a cartoon after all), be sure and check out the recent all-too-real stories of Joseph Rivers and Charles Clarke, for whom this cartoon surely hits too close to home.

Even they are only the tip of the iceberg.
