That's not what I'm here to talk about.
What I'm here to talk about is what's going to happen to their cash and their inventory? They don't get it back. Current law in most of the US effectively says that cops can take anything they want and keep it for the use of their departments, and as long as they don't take it from anyone with any political power the law will probably stay that way. Even in places where the money can't be spent by the department and instead goes into an evidence locker forever, that's money that's not in M1 any more, which means the federal government can print more and spend that.
I handle large amounts of money from time to time. It used to be that I was afraid of running across a mugger on the way to the bank. Now I'm more concerned about running across a cop.
