Civil Asset Forfeiture Reform in Ohio

Those of you who have been following my "Blogging for Dollars" exploits for the Heartland Institute know that I have written about this topic quite a bit.

This just in: "State Representative Robert McColley (R-Napoleon) will be holding a press conference tomorrow to discuss legislation he is introducing that will work to reform the process known as Civil Asset Forfeiture. Supported by various organizations such as FreedomWorks and the Justice Action Network, the bill would strengthen and clarify Ohio law to protect due process and individual property rights."

I look forward to learning more about this bill as the subject came up several times when I was trying to get in at the Ohio House before three "unnamed" state representatives told the Speaker that wasn't a good idea. 

This blog firmly stands with proper application of the law.  Due process is a vital protection against the tyranny of government.
