Topic: Drug Seizure laws
Search and seizure in the United States have become a basic procedure especially in drug related cases. Under the criminal justice procedure law enforcement officials are allowed to search for as well as seize personal properties that are suspected in any way in the in the involvement of a crime. Some times, some unsuspecting people find themselves victims of circumstances when their property is involved or is in any way tied to a criminal offence. Their property, be it a vehicle or a house, may be put under police custody and the person treated as a suspected criminal (accomplice) or a witness just for the mere fact that his property is connected in any way to contraband related crimes (Goode, 1997). This paper will therefore explore the procedure or the protocols that are followed in handling such kind of a witnesses and the resultant property as evidence. The seizure of and handling of such kind of property might seem as unfair but it is important since it is solid evidence that can be useful in prosecuting arrested criminals. A constitution of a land dictates as all cases are judged according to the laws of the land signed under the constitution the law comes as the fairest judgment (Goode, 1997). If all the protocols are adhered to ending up in forfeiture of ones property even if he has no connection in a drug related crime then the law should effectively apply without being considered unfair. The law should not favor any one at all.
