John Oliver's legit breakdown on civil forfeiture, aka police robbing people

Seems they regularly ask people if they have cash and have taken $2.5 billion since 9/11/2001!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They charge possessions in court as defendants! At the end there is a pretty good mock-cop drama "civil forfeiture unit" with Jeff Goldblum.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Civil Forfeiture (HBO)

Did you know police can just take your stuff if they suspect it's involved in a crime? They can! It's a shady process called "civil asset forfeiture," and it would make for a weird episode of Law and Order. See? Connect with Last Week Tonight online...
