Description

From the questionnaire, "The story examined asset forfeitures by a drug task force and found that cash and property were used to strike deals for leniency, and that deals were made because the task force needed money to keep its federal grant and survive." In many cases, probation was offered in return for the defendants agreement not to fight forfeitures in court.
