it's a start... I want to see ALL property returned with interest in the case of money and with equivalent rent in the case of physical property... they can take it from the policeman's benevolent funds and bonuses/retirement of management... they knew they were stealing when they did it

We have similar law here, I have no problem with forfiture under "Procedes of Crime", I've bought such at government auction. As I understand it, this was the tactic used to shut down the local HA club house. The forfiture is not final for at least two years after conviction so to allow the possibility of appeal. Not sure of how cash is handled if an appeal is successful.
