This topic is one of the clear examples of how our politicians don't give a damn about the citizenry.
There is clear consensus on both the right and the left that this is a problem.
Trump, Clinton Voters Find Common Ground On Dislike Of Asset Forfeiture, Poll Shows
When asked whether reforming the criminal justice system is a key priority facing our country, 81 percent of Trump voters and 83 percent of Clinton voters acknowledge the issue as a priority. When asked how important the issue of criminal justice, police and the courts is to them, 92 percent of Trump voters and 94 percent of Clinton voters responded that the issue is “important” to them. Sixty-eight and 67 percent of Trump and Clinton voters, respectively, said the issue is “very important” to them.
But the theft with the government playing the part of the robber goes on with minimal effort to stop it.

The only real question is how many of the amendments does CAF violate?
