Description

Mesa (Ariz.) Tribune reports that Arizona's racketeering and forfeiture laws, written to combat organized crime, are often misused against average citizens; over a two year period, RICO statutes were used to seize $26.5 million in cash and assets from 2,400 people, but only 14 people were ever convicted of a crime and three-quarters were never even charged.
