Poll: Should the Money From the Busts be Used for a Treatment Center?

Image result for photobucket pics yes, no, maybeIf you live in the Eastern Panhandle of West Virginia I guess you have been reading the stories of the big drug busts going on around the area as well as the arrests of several drug kingpins in the area. This, in my opinion, is a prime example of where the monies should come from for a treatment center right here in Martinsburg and/or Berkeley County.

I am wondering what your opinion is...

  1. I think only if the person is convicted should drug bust money be used for a treatment center. Asset forfeiture laws are already being abused. Many police departments use forfeiture to benefit their bottom lines, making seizures motivated by profit rather than crime-fighting. For people whose property has been seized through civil asset forfeiture, legally regaining such property is notoriously difficult and expensive. We already have a problem with for profit prisons and locking up non violent offenders to keep the prison population at a certain level to make money for the prison. Seizing before conviction is not a step I feel we should take.

    1. Thank you for your comment. Yes I do agree on after a conviction has been made in a jury trial.

  2. After conviction, yes. But is should not be for operating costs. Too unreliable. But for capital investment, absolutely.
