Guilty Until Proven Innocent [electronic resource]: Asset Forfeiture Laws

WSMV (Television station : Nashville, Tenn.)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
The concept of presumed innocence is fundamental to American justice, but this program shows how private property in Tennessee was seized on suspicion of illegal activity. Without pressing criminal charges, the case is brought in civil court and the person who has lost his cash or his car must prove his innocence. The program profiles a "typical" citizen who has come up against the asset forfeiture laws-most are minorities, too poor to pay for proper legal representation, and unlikely (whether they have committed a crime or not) ever to get their money back. The program also looks at the argument that the laws are useful in the war against drugs.
