The Immorality of Victimless Crimes

 

Victimless Crimes are Not Really Crimes… And Make the Cops the Criminals

 

 

A real crime, by definition, has a perpetrator and a victim: murder, assault, rape, theft, and extortion are all obvious crimes because there is a victim.  The “government” frequently institutes illogical, immoral and counter-productive “laws” (politician scribbles) that penalize peaceful, non-violent people for “crimes” that have no victim.

 

 

Drug possession, gambling, beach fires, and making arrests for ignoring Covid-19 lock down and social distancing orders are examples of victimless crimes where politicians attempt to get police to use violence and extortion immorally and preemptively on mostly peaceful people frequently to raise revenue.  When the police use violence and coercion against peaceful people for victimless crimes it makes the cops the criminals who are engaged in kidnapping and extortion under the color of law.

The Criminality of Civil Asset Forfeiture

The Criminality of Civil Asset Forfeiture
Civil forfeiture laws pose some of the greatest threats to property rights in the nation today, too often making it easy and lucrative for law enforcement to take and keep property—regardless of the owner’s guilt or innocence. The Institute for Justice, a national law firm dedicated to legal issues, published an  updated and expanded second edition of Policing for Profit: The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture that makes the case for reform, grading the civil forfeiture laws of each state and the federal government, documenting remarkable growth in forfeiture activity across the country, and highlighting a worrisome lack of transparency surrounding forfeiture activity and expenditures from forfeiture funds.
