John Oliver Discusses Civil Forfeiture, Jeff Goldblum Stops By

So it turns out that police can just take stuff that they suspect isn't involved in a crime. They decide it themselves. It's called “civil asset forfeiture” and it's bullshit. They can take money, beer kegs, iPads. Everything. The end of the story involves John Oliver and Jeff Goldblum in Law & Order: Civil Asset Forfeiture Unit that is way better than I'm describing it.
