Wisconsin Cops Confiscate Families' Bail Money
Under Asset Forfeiture Law, Wisconsin Cops Confiscate Families' Bail Money
[link to www.huffingtonpost.com]
She used part of her disability payment and her tax return. Joel Greer's wife also chipped in, as did his brother and two sisters. On Feb. 29, a judge set Greer's bail at $7,500, and his mother called the Brown County jail to see where and how she could get him out. "The police specifically told us to bring cash," Greer says. "Not a cashier's check or a credit card. They said cash."

So Greer and her family visited a series of ATMs, and on March 1, she brought the money to the jail, thinking she'd be taking Joel Greer home. But she left without her money, or her son.

Instead jail officials called in the same Drug Task Force that arrested Greer. A drug-sniffing dog inspected the Greers' cash, and about a half-hour later, Beverly Greer said, a police officer told her the dog had alerted to the presence of narcotics on the bills -- and that the police department would be confiscating the bail money.

"I told them the money had just come from the bank," Beverly Greer says. "We had just taken it out. If the money had drugs on it, then they should go seize all the money at the bank, too. I just don't understand how they could do that."

Wow, yeah lawsuit here......fucking insane. They were singled out!
No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

"If anyone wants to know how God feels, it's a warm light as if the sun is poking through dark clouds and lifting your spirits with pure joy."

I remember reading an article years ago that 80% of bills in circulation had traces of cocaine on them.... bills were used as tooters/bindles and cross contamination in wallets did the rest...

Low life cops just confiscated a waitress 12k tip saying the same shit. Their fucking highly trained dog sniffed some shit and the money was confiscated for drugs residue.

Brown county is a court room terror when justice is being served. Good luck.

Of course they know that. It's been common knowledge for many years.

There have been tests that prove that residue garbage.

This is what asset forfeiture has done.

This is the kind of crap that starts armed revolution. It is happening all over the country, confiscation of cash for no legal reason.

The government at all levels is out of control.

It is time for the American people to restore the Constitution.

Does anyone read linked articles?

It took four months for Beverly Greer to get her family's money back, and then only after attorney Andy Williams agreed to take their case. "The family produced the ATM receipts proving that had recently withdrawn the money," Williams says. "Beverly Greer had documentation for her disability check and her tax return. Even then, the police tried to keep their money."

Still doesn't excuse the bastards for pulling a swifty.


edit: Stems from her son being arrested last February. Don't go into journalism OP if you pick and choose info.

There is a "LEGAL REASON" for confiscating the cash. It is according to their "law". That's the point, the law is unjust and tyrannical.
