CJ Ciaramella: Asset Forfeiture – Reform or Eliminate?

Broadcast Running Time: 23:15

John has spoken out about the corruption surrounding civil asset forfeiture for years, but now some jurisdictions are beginning to take notice.  Joining us today is CJ Ciaramella (reason.com), Criminal Justice correspondent at Reason Magazine.  He shows how Florida has enacted some laws to reform asset forfeiture, but like with anything, those who are abusing the system have found a loophole around the new reform.  He looks at the different tactics used during and after seizures, and what some of the money is spent on.  If ironclad reform that can withstand loopholes isn’t possible, then asset forfeiture should be eliminated.
