Asset Forfeiture, The Donald Scott Case.

A large and growing list of Americans — now numbering in the hundreds of thousands — who have been victimized by civil asset forfeiture. Under civil asset forfeiture, everything you own can be legally taken away even if you are never convicted of a crime.

Donald P. Scott, age 61, owned and lived on a 200-acre property known as the Trails End Ranch, in the Ventura County portion of Malibu. California. On October 2, 1992, while serving a search warrant at the ranch, Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies shot Donald Scott, resulting in his death.

    Prohibition = …
    Prohibition = Making criminals out of all of us. And the true criminals richer. One would think we would have learn something from 1920-1933 in the USA.

    But what are we doing about it… what about Mrs Scott? Restitution? What about the murderers, are their names all public easily accessible to all? have they been tracked down and their lives made hell? No, I think not, we all want someone else to take a stand while we are busy doing who knows what. that’s why we are where we are.

    I saw these new boron carbide armor vets on Modern Marvels on History Channel. This armor makes bullets useless. The narration mentioned that only the legs and the arms were vulnerable. The SWAT team had some heavy duty head gear on as well. In Iraq US soldiers are more likely to be blown up by improvised explosives than to be shot by guns. They use armor in Iraq as well. It is difficult to get armor piercing rounds if you are a “civilian”.

    “Lost his moral compass” Doesn’t one have to possess a moral compass in order to lose it?

    The war on drugs is an excuse for the evil murder of citizens for the good of the government and industry.

    WTF?

    Most people in America can’t spell “forfeiture.”

    I came to this video only because I saw “Aaron Russo’s Mad As Hell.” The late Aaron Russo discussed this crime against America then had experts on Asset Forfeiture on a panel to discuss the issue.

    Its amazing that our government spews moral justice politics yet they are the ones who kill , steal and constantly sell dangerous illegal drugs to the people . They persicute us for our choices and yet tend to be the ones offering the very thing they will take our lives from us for . This country is based on money and getting the people who have the most more of it nothing more . Law has no meaning but to take the rights of the citizens and give the rich power in this country .

    I used to not believe cases like this, I do now. There has been too many cases just like this. Now I smile when a member of law enforcement is killed. Oakland was great, 4 dead officers Pittsburg was even better. Buy guns people, be ready to fight illegal police action with deadly force. We are at that point and it will only get worse. I know a guy with several cases of armor piercing rounds. I thought he was a nut, know I know why. They will cut through a bullet proof vest like butter. Sad ? NO

    Yes, I agree that there is so little attention about asset forfeiture. I think that if more people knew about asset forfeiture, they would be outraged to learn that it could happen to them so very easily as well. The sad fact about asset forfeiture is that most cases are civil and not criminal.

    so sad that this story only has been viewed 300 times in a little less than 2 months… look up Asset Forfeiture on google videos and be shocked that so little attention is drawn to these legal thieveries by our govt. … one reason i am afraid to return to live in the US of bullshit.

    Man you are so …
    Man you are so right, you never really get to own your land in the end. Property taxes have to get paid no matter what if you want to keep your land. Even after your death someone will have to keep paying those taxes or lose it to the gvmt…its crazy how you never really get that freedom you expected. So much corruption!

    Thank you, CatalystLightwave.

    That is an excellent video. It is very informative of how the drug war is full of corruption. This system is corrupt and very backwards.

    I would highly recommend watching this video.

    My heart goes out …
    My heart goes out to this poor woman. It’s reasons like this why I have always been cautious when owning any realestate. I have surmised that you may have your name on the deed, but, you never really own it even after you pay off the bank loan because of all the various property taxes that you have to pay each year just to keep it. This tells me that you can only have freedom in our country if you keep paying for it. And they say that the organized crime syndicates were corrupt???????
