The whole concept of civil forfeiture should be eliminated. The proper procedure if the government believes that the money is the result of a crime is a criminal prosecution along with all of the protection of rights and requirement of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Most often civil forfeiture can be summed up as "You have some money. Hand it over."

Forfeiture of assets should only come AFTER their owner is convicted!
