Неприкосновенная частная собственность в Америке, говорите?

In late February, Stephen Lara was on his way from Texas to Northern California to visit his daughters. Along the way, he was stopped by a Nevada State Patrol trooper. The trooper offered a bizarre explanation for the stop, that he was just educating drivers about minor infractions they may not know they’re committing. But before it was over, Lara became another victim of civil asset forfeiture.
As the maddening story from the Washington Post reports, the trooper told Lara that he followed a tanker truck too closely right before passing it. But the officer eventually said that he was there to stop drugs, weapons and money from being smuggled across the border.
Lara — a former Marine with tours in Iraq in Afghanistan — told the trooper that he hadn’t done anything illegal, but that he did have a bunch of cash in the car. He doesn’t trust banks and instead keeps his cash at home with his parents in Texas. Lara even had receipts proving that the cash was all his. He took the cash along with him on that trip because he was planning to look for houses closer to his kids.
That didn’t stop the trooper from deciding to basically rob him blind, from Washington Post:
As he stood on the side of the road, police searched the vehicle, pulling nearly $87,000 in a zip-top bag from Lara’s trunk and insisting a drug-sniffing dog had detected something on the cash.
Police found no drugs, and Lara, 39, was charged with no crime. But police left with his money, calling a Drug Enforcement Administration agent to coordinate an “adoption,” which allows federal authorities to seize cash or property they suspect is connected to criminal activity without levying criminal charges.
“I left there confused. I left there angry,” Lara said in an interview with The Washington Post. “And I could not believe that I had just been literally robbed on the side of the road by people with badges and guns.”

Были 87 000 денег и сплыли. Отобрали без суда и следствия.
