Ok now check this situation out. This has happened to people I know all the time here in MD/DC. It is so wrong I just gotta speak on it... In a nutshell, the situation is this... For whatever reason, the feds press you out, and do a search on you... after searching you, they find that you have 500 cash on you... the police ask you where you work.... and then ask if you have proof.... you tell them where you work, but you dont have any papers that can prove it... so they confiscate your hard earned money and claim that it is drug money... OK is this not a robbery? As I understand it, robbery occurs when physical harm is threatened in return for money... So when the cops walk up on you with guns and take your money, is that not the same thing? What makes it OK for them to take our property/cash from us? Because they are cops? Another situation that I hear alot about is with these little children that have their parents buying them cell phones... Ok, now I used to work in a cell phone store, and Ive had 3 different kids come in with this story about police taking their cell phones, and claiming that the cell phone is stolen... So the police take the cell phones from these teary eyed kids, and are told that they will never get it back. Therefore the parents that bought the cell phone, has to come and buy a whole new cell phone... This is one of the lowest forms of abusive power Ive heard of robbing children now... These are the people that good ol Dubya Bush would like to paint as "heroes"? To me they aint nothing more than legal thugs... When will people start to realize that "serve and protect" slogan is a sham... They are not here to protect civilians... they are here to protect the government.
