Every photo of Sessions makes him look like he's three feet tall.

There was a viral video last week of a guy working a hotdog stand who had the money in his wallet ($60) seized by a UC Berkeley police officer because he was working without a permit.  This probably wasn't legal under SB-443.

Let's see if this passes.

That must be by design. That creatively cropped shot is very Smeagle-ish.

Better call Vox.

Wyoming police took an innocent man's $91,800. After a Vox report, he will get it back.

SC has some good experience here. Misleading headline:

https://www.wspa.com/news/sc-town-seized-135-for-each-person-from-traffic-stops-1/1772612990

Small town, they collected 50k from 50 stops. Only 3 of these resulted in conviction. The headline number represents forfeiture per resident of the town based on 50k.
