Gotta spend it somehow

In Tennessee:

The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security improperly spent more than $100,000 in asset forfeiture funds on catering and banquet tickets over the last two years, according to a report released Thursday by the Department of Justice’s inspector general.

The inspector general reported that between 2014 and 2016, the Tennessee agency spent $112,614 in asset forfeiture funds on catering, luncheon, retail food, and banquet tickets, all of which are not allowable expenses under the Justice Department’s guidelines for its equitable sharing program.

Asset forfeiture is a scam and should require conviction.

    The people who do “asset forfeiture” need to be criminally charged with robbery, convicted and sent to jail forever.

    “…catering, luncheon, retail food, and banquet tickets…” i.e. partying.

    This is my shocked face. This is what I’ll remember every time I see a representative of Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security.

    Every time a politician/bureaucrat breaks the law it deserves prosecution.

  5. Paul Koning Says:

    Joe, yes, of course it does. Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen because AGs are politicians too, and “we the people” are judged not to have standing.
