Worst I've Seen Yet

Forfeiture abuse: the authorities are trying to seize the property of a motel owner who has cooperated with them against crime, leaving similar corporate properties unmolested.

Such seizures, of course, are the kind of thing that the Bill of Rights is supposed to prevent. Is the government returning to the days of predatory Roman tax collectors?

(The foregoing assumes that the facts of the case are as presented by the Institute for Justice.)
