From a blog post today at The Atlantic:

The Institute for Justice has an excellent report on this subject too. Whether you watch the video from Tennessee, read the Balko article, or read the IJ report, the takeaway is something that should be obvious: it’s imprudent to allow police departments to keep property seized by their officers, because it incentivizes abuse and the misallocation of resources. Reform ought to be a no-brainer in every state that has these laws even if you’re a hard core law and order type.
