[ laughter ] may you high step into the weekend. thanks for watching. lots of smiles here in the studio. i'm mark hyman. he is an update on a topic in the past. the justice department is shutting down the equitable sharing program of asset forfeiture. there are two types of for bit ur -- criminal and civil. in criminal asset forfeiture the government may seize money and assets it's shown to be the spoils of criminal activity. after there's been a conviction. civil asset forfeiture is the wild west. it's used before someone's been
3:55 pm
accused of a crime. federal rules of asset forfeiture are lax under the equitable sharing arrangement the doj allowed state and local governments to use these lax federal rules. too often state and local police forces confiscated money and assets without charging anyone with a crime. or even questioning them. agencies then auction the assets. they're usually free to spend all the money they've kum lateed with few or no restrictions. this is why critics call it policing for profit. it's been reported washington, d.c. police make stops and seize whatever cash they find in people's pockets. even as little as $20 claiming it could be drug proceeds. ending the equitable sharing program is a small step in the right dressing. but more need to be done to guarantee citizens fif atsz mendment rights to due process before government confiscates
