Infuriating dashcam footage has been released of literal “highway robbery” and it is being carried out by the police!
The door to state sanctioned robbery has been open for a long time, thanks to the illegitimate and immoral “war on drugs.” However, the police in Nevada have taken this thievery and racketeering to a new level.
In something that you’d expect to see in a third world county, 8 News Now in Las Vegas has obtained exclusive dash-cam video from one of these drug interdiction stops. While no drugs were found, that didn’t stop the deputy from grabbing the cash.
“How much money you got?” Humboldt County Deputy Lee Dove can be heard asking on the video.
Dove can be seen dropping cash on the hood of the car.
Deputy Dove: “That’s not yours, is it?” Motorist: “That’s mine.” Deputy Dove: “Well, I’m seizing it.”
The media is referring to this is a “questionable” practice, but it is nothing short of grand theft. The man in the video was not only stolen from by police, but he was illegally searched as well.
Deputy Dove: “Well, I’m gonna search that vehicle first, ok?” Nguyen: “Hey, what’s the reason you’re searching my car?” Deputy Dove: “Because I’m talking to you … well, no, I don’t have to explain that to you. I’m not going to explain that to you, but I am gonna put my drug dog on that (pointing to money). If my dog alerts, I’m seizing the money. You can try to get it back but you’re not.” Nguyen: (inaudible) got it in Vegas.” Deputy Dove: “Good luck proving it. Good luck proving it. You’ll burn it up in attorney fees before we give it back to you.”
Then this road pirate tells the man how he can leave with a warning as long as he leaves his $50,000 with him. …
“They brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawks’ bells. They willingly traded everything they owned. They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features…. They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane… . They would make fine servants…. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.”—Christopher Columbus (via peashooter85)
