FEAR-List Bulletin posted by Leon Felkin February 6, 1998
The San Jose Mercury News reports in the Tuesday, February 3, 1998, edition that Oakland police are seizing automobiles based on the Bennis opinion of the U.S. Supreme court. The automobiles are being seized if they are suspected of being involved in buying drugs or hiring hookers within city limits.
The newspaper said,
"The American Civil Liberties Union has objected to such laws, contending the seizures are taking place before anyone is convicted in the case. But city officials argue that their law is supported by a recent Supreme Court decision that upheld a similar ordinance in Michigan."
Hopefully, the citizens of California will hold the politicians responsible for supporting this un-constitutional and immoral activity and vote accordingly in the next election.
