Description

Pittsburgh Press reports on widespread abuses of federal seizure and forfeiture laws, which were created to be a weapon against major drug dealers, but have hit private citizens, innocent of any proven crime, by stripping them of their property; abuse is fueled by the fact that local law enforcement receives a cut from forfeitures, Aug. 11 - 16, 1991.
