"On Tuesday, CBS Dallas glorified an incident at Dallas Love Field Airport in which a 25-year-old woman traveling with $100,000 in cash had it seized by the cops in what's known as civil asset forfeiture. If you need a primer, see our previous reporting here and here.

CBS reported:

High praise for a K-9 officer at Dallas Love Field Airport after more than $100,000 was found in a passenger’s luggage.

On December 2 the canine — named ‘Ballentine’ — alerted on an individual checked suitcase. It turns out the bag, that belonged to 25-year-old woman from Chicago who was on a layover at the airport, contained blankets and two large bubble envelopes filled with $106,829 in cash.

The woman who owned the bag was not arrested, but the money was seized and police say it will be subject to the civil asset forfeiture process.

In short, the network spun an egregious theft from an innocent, uncharged citizen by making it about a 'cute' police K-9."

Give DC A LittleBoy for Christmas.
They Have Earned It.

    Did the Homeland Security baloney have any play in this? What about Article V in the Constitution of the United States? I see this causing a big stink.

    Another government shake down on the people? I guess Constitutional legal and just compensation no longer applies if some "authority" decides it doesn't. Shocking graph showing police theft from innocent people outstripping actual burglaries. I would normally say "hard to believe", but not anymore.
