Obama AG nominee Loretta Lynch quietly dropped $450,000 civil forfeiture case a week before hearings

Obama AG nominee Loretta Lynch quietly dropped $450,000 civil forfeiture case a week before hearings

Had it not been for her nomination, Hirsch and his brothers would still be without the $450,000 the government stole from them in May, 2012 . THIS IS TYRANNY!!! The United States Federal Government of today is 100 times more tyrannical than the Monarchy of George III of the United Kingdom in the 1700s.

...Hirsch and his brothers, like thousands of other Americans in the past 10 years, had been targeted by law enforcement authorities on suspicion of a crime he had never heard of. His money had been seized as part of a federally sanctioned wave of “civil asset forfeitures,” with citizens losing homes and automobiles and life savings merely because they were suspected of some crime.
The subject is likely to come up at U.S. Senate hearings this week to review President Obama’s nomination of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder as U.S. Attorney General, staff of the Senate Judiciary Committee say. It was Lynch’s office that inflicted the nightmare of disappearing funds on the Hirsches and refused to release the money even after overwhelming evidence that the brothers were innocent of wrongdoing.
Since 2008, police agencies have seized cash and property worth $3 billion, making more than 55,000 seizures, according to the Washington Post. Lynch’s office hauled in$113 million in civil forfeiture actions from 123 cases between 2011 and 2013, and aWall Street Journal editorial described her office as “a major forfeiture operation.”
Last week, Lynch’s office finally gave the brothers their money back, two years and nine months after it had been seized and exactly a week before Lynch was scheduled to be grilled by members of the Judiciary Committee.
By now, the asset-forfeiture horror stories have begun to alarm not only ordinary citizens but members of Congress and high-ranking federal officials. Holder himself stepped into the controversy last week, issuing a sweeping order to stop local and state police from seizing private property without warrant or criminal charges...
