John Oliver on Civil Forfeiture

As always, John Oliver's take on something newsworthy, corrupt, and jaw-droppingly absurd manages to nail it straight through the beating heart.

If your friends don't understand (or don't believe in) the problem with cops being able to basically take stuff away from anyone they don't like with near-total impunity, they will by the time they've finished wetting themselves with laughter watching this -- and they'll come away with the incandescent rage that this deserves.
