Did you see that this was a border check? It read like an interior checkpoint to me. Maybe this was drug related but it also says you or I can't carry large sums of money, hidden without it being taken until proved innocent. I don't like this at all. If there was evidence he would not have been released.

It is a way to have executive punishment outside of any judicial restraint. It should be unconstitutional.

All administrative law is aimed at collecting money, not reducing/punishing real crime.

Just a part of the War on Drugs.

Cindy, I may have noticed that, but I did address it as if it were a border crossing. I shouldn’t have.

I wonder if it dawns on these geniuses that anyone traveling with large sums of money might want to hide it away so it isn’t stolen.

Look, it may be drug money. I still don’t think you steal someone’s money unless you know what the facts are. These guys are simply taking the money without cause.

What would be the difference if they walked up to someone leaving a bank, and stuck a gun in their ribs?

I don’t like it either.
