Harrisburg Man Sues City And Police Over seized Money

In August 2010, while searching for an officer’s stolen handgun, Harrisburg police seized tens of thousands of dollars in cash from Antoine Black’s home on Logan Street.

Black is claiming in a federal lawsuit that the cops should have left that money alone, especially since they didn’t find the missing gun in his house or charge him with a crime.

I've been telling you that the police can seize money and property AND KEEP IT (!?) without EVER charging you with a crime or ever even having a court hearing. YOU have to prove you are innocent! All this time, I thought you WERE innocent until PROVEN guilty of a crime (that INCLUDES a trial, by the way). Freedom and liberty, we hardly knew ye....Where ARE those seig heil goose stepping idiots who keep saying "if you're not doing anything wrong, then why worry about your rights?" Well, here's someone who wasn't doing anything wrong and NOW has to show why she has MONEY in her house. Not drugs and money, or stolen property and money, or guns and money. Just money. Maybe your grandma, stashing her life savings in her closet, is next. Don't start whining THEN.
