Tenaha Police Make Practice of Illegal Searching and Seizing Property of African American Motorists
Mar 11, 2009
Crime doesn't pay and if you commit certain crimes, the law says that anything you bought from the money you earned illegally is subject to be forfeieted over to the state. But what if you haven't committed a crime- when the state takes your money, possessions, or car - is it just robbery? The U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Texas is going to have to answer that question and the city of Tenaha is going to have to answer to a number of questions itself.
For instance, why out of the 200 cases of "asset forfeiture" was a crime related to asset forfeiture found in only 50? Why out of the remaining 150 or so cases were all of the defendants African American? The most important question of all is- why in 2009 do certain locations and their governmental bodies feel that they can treat people in a way that is disrespectful, demeaning, and illegal? I wonder if anyone in Tenaha is going to be able to provide the court with suitable answers?
