The quote from Pete Donnelly, not to mention the Raton case, shows how civil asset forfeiture can turn law enforcement into little more than highway robbers. Pass and sign this bill.

good luck hoping the governor signs this, the disgraced Darren White loved abusing civil forfeiture to pad his budget

Good Opportunity for the Martinez Administration to do something Positive for a change and stop squandering our tax dollars in waste of time, lawsuits as for the most part, our Good Govenor seems to be on the losing side most times she is taken to court. Latest example her rush to replace the retiring Senator Griego based on a non-exsistent "emergency". And to think She is aspiring to higher office, frankly, frightens me. Let's start by getting this sensible bill signed into law. Time to stop ripping off innocent citizens to fatten their coffers no matter what their thinking.


Signing that bill would give the administration more good legitimate
PR than anything they have done. We've seen enough pictures with little kids
for a lifetime...
