How about civil asset forfeiture? It is inconceivable to me that any
significant number of people outside the offending agencies could really be

plentiful and shocking. Finally, it is a useful jumping point to other
more "subtle" abuses of power by the state apparatus. It could help to
break down that initial knee-jerk reaction that the state can do no wrong.
