We did a lot this year. One of the most important things we did was an investigative report on civil asset forfeiture in Alabama — a process that lets law enforcement take people's property even if they haven't committed a crime. #SPLCWinterReadingList #BestOf2018
What did police use it to take? Couches. Coffee tables. TVs. More than $2 million in cash from just nine Alabama counties. Likely more: police don't have to report what they take through civil asset forfeiture. splcenter.org/20180116/civil…
It’s time for Alabama to end civil asset forfeiture. In 2019, we'll continue working to end exploitative practices that encourage policing for profit rather than justice. #SPLCWinterReadingList #BestOf2018 splcenter.org/sites/default/…
