carmium: I believe the pilot, in your example, would have to get a damn good lawyer and fight it. I don't see the DEA seizing 747s or A380s over the drugs they find, that come into America, on the big airline`s international flights.

If the law is not equally enforced, no matter the size of the business, then it`s unconstitutional.

hehehe, i know lenty of tales of coruption that have and still are happening in some eastern european countries, but now i understand why the americans keep claiming corruption isnt as wide spread state side.. They made it into a law.... not sure if i should laugh out loud or feel for the defenders of the land of the free (of posession)

I saw a news show segment where they interviewed a pilot. Ha had always dreamed of owning a jet and doing business charters around Florida, the Caribbean, and the top of South America. After many long years working for others and saving his nickels, he reached his goal and started what became a very successful little operation. One day he takes a businessman from Venezuela to Florida, where the passenger is quickly nabbed for having a suitcase full of drugs. The pilot, who has a pristine record, knows nothing about it, and points out that he is prevented by law from examining his passengers' luggage. Doesn`t matter: he helped transport drugs, and they steal his plane. The guy is left with no way to make a living and money owing on a plane he doesn`t have. It was enough to make you sick.

I'm pretty sure the SCOTUS has ruled (more than once) that the police have no obligation to Serve & Protect citizens.

Wait a minute, if they are seizing non-criminal related assets, why wouldn't the person get lawyered up, travel to whatever jurisdiction, etc. to get their property back? If anyone`s rightfully bought Lamborghini was seized you can bet your ass they would fight it.
