A License to Steal: The Forfeiture of Property

Synopsis

The laws of forfeiture dictate that the government may confiscate property that has been associated with the commission of a crime. In the 1970's and 1980's, law enforcement agencies increasingly used this controversial tactic and, as a result, reaped tremendous financial profit. In A License to Steal, Leonard W. Levy traces the development and implementation of forfeiture and contends that it is a questionable practice that, because it is so often abused, serves only to undermine civil society.
