Police can't stop themselves from stealing money.

Those fancy paramilitary toys don't buy themselves.

1. That shit needs to stop!

It's been going on for years and it never should have been allowed in the first place. It's just a symptom of the evils caused by the war on drugs. All they have to say is that they suspect the money is being used for drug dealing and they can seize it. Talk about highway robbery!

2. Never, ever, talk to the police. It is your right not to,

although the “Supreme” Court has held that you must expressly invoke your 5th Amendment right to remain silent. If you don’t, even your silence can be used against you. But rembember, ANYTHING you SAY WILL be used against you.

NEVER consent to a search of your vehicle. If they want to search, absent an arrest or your permission, they need a warrant

4. Dishonesty is incompatible with plain old decency and good sense.

It's not limited to right or left. Or to "police."
