The best of the worst...

I wrote this back in January about a Reason Magazine article on Indiana's Asset Forfieture Laws and its relevence in Richmond.

In a follow up article that I discoverd today in Reason Magazine, and subsequently on their website, author Radley Balko points out that only one county in Indiana is even coming close to complying with the law, which requires that the questionably seized assets must be turned over to the school fund.

Our own Wayne County qualifies for that dubious honor.

I'm reminded of the scene from the Paul Newman movie, "Cool Hand Luke", when one of the guards put Luke in "the box" for the night, and apologized that he was only doing his job, to which Luke replied,

"Yeah boss, that don't make it right."
