Oklahoma civil forfeiture reform bill refused in Senate committee | Red Dirt Report

Would really like to know why this was shelved.

I know there was another one that passed earlier but it was extremely weak compared to this bill. I would like to know what so called "conservative" members of our Senate have an issue with protecting our 4th and 5th amendment rights.

Sykes, the committee head didn't allow the hearing, due to objections of law enforcement in Oklahoma. They want to continue to have the right to confiscate cash and property of Oklahomans without requiring the conviction of a crime.

To defend yourself against the cops who want your possessions after stopping you, try to act calm and free of stress and fear in your voice. After doing that and the cop, nevertheless, asks to search your car, say NO!.
