District Cops Will Can Remain Shakedown Artists Until 2018

Because the cops have budgeted shakedown money (civil asset forfeiture money that goes straight into their coffers) the District's overhaul won't affect the cops until 2018.   Gee, that's plenty of time for the cops to work on future City Council members, reverse the law, and keep the money flowing to them.  I'm cynical, but if I'm around in 2018 and remember, I hope I'm wrong, but I am confident in my estimate of District cops and councils ethics.

D.C. Council votes to overhaul asset forfeiture, give property owners new rights
