Then let’s take a look at the “side” that the DEA offered, shall we?
“We don’t have to prove that the person is guilty,” Waite said. “It’s that the money is presumed to be guilty.”
Either that’s a completely fabricated quote and the journalist should be sued for libel, or Albuquerque DEA head agent Sean Waite just said his agents they can take this man’s money even if they have no evidence whatsoever that he’s committed any crime.
“The money is presumed guilty?” What the fuck is that? How does legal currency commit a crime? And why is it OK to presume that the cash in a black guy’s luggage is guilty of a crime but not the money in a white guy’s hedge fund?
