Family's Home Seized by Police After Son's $40 Drug Bust

Earlier this year, Yianni Sourovelis, 22, was arrested for possessing $40 worth of heroin, his first criminal offense. Several weeks later, police and representatives of the district attorney's office showed up at Sourovelis' parents' house in the Philadelphia suburbs and told them they were being evicted.

According to Markella Sourovelis, Yianni's mother, the officers who arrived began screwing doors shut, shutting off electricity, and telling the family their home would be gutted after it was seized by the state. The elder Sourovelises had committed no crimes, but were victims of Pennsylvania's civil forfeiture law, which allowed the city district attorney to take custody of the home just because it believed it was being used to sell drugs, without a trial or other proof of wrongdoing. It is worth repeating, perhaps, that this was Yianni's first offense.

CNN has the full story, which—surprise!—involves Philly law enforcement making a ton of money:

Ummmm...this story is a bit incomplete.  If you read the entire original story, the parents are back in the house, and are participants in a class action lawsuit against the City of Philadelphia.

Asset forfeiture laws suck BIG TIME.  Completely Draconian and wholly out of proportion to the alleged offense.

N.B.

Goats, Rivas's location is "Troll Station, Antarctica"
In other words, just another loser trying to get a rise out of people because he has such a sorry life he has nothing better to do to boost his ego.

Absurdly corrupt henchmen of the tyrannical elitist financial based government hypocritically rob innocent family after small amount of common analogue of hospital pain medicine found on son.

A more accurate news title.

This is beyond disgusting ...
I was about to post this atrocity.These people should be ashamed of themselves.
Damn drug war is nothing but a cluster fuck that causes more problems then it serves.
And that douche that was posting about how this is fair,someone should kick him.
Sorry but this really pisses me off that people are OK with the DA doing this kind of shit.
