Absolutely not true. if it were they would be going after all 13 cars, not singling out the worst offenders.
It is being melodramatic, unless of course you're a street racer and this impacts you, which you are not, so you're being a drama queen.
Before you cry that I'm picking on you, I've used specific examples to highlight my point, while your point is just opinion. Perhaps try to back up your points with examples, facts, ... something so they have some merit and you won't feel picked on.
Before I say anything else, I need to address your last part. I respect that this sub-section isn't the place for crap, so I'll keep this brief.
Do not EVER pander to me, or patronize me. That statement was completely without merit, and was not required. I have resisted the idea that you are a troll. I think you do like to antagonize, and its uncalled for in a civilized conversation.
Yes, I gave my opinion. I did zero research. I get it man, you are a system man. Great. You have faith that the government, and their police wing has got your back. You keep your nose clean, work your 9-5 and so what does it matter to you, right?
I don't take the idea of stripping possessions from private citizens lightly. Just the same as I don't take anything done in the justice system lightly. The final measure of security that powers are not being abused is public discussion.
I don't care what happens in Ontario, or California. They have their own thing to do. I care what happens here.
I think-think, that's my opinion Taylor, that this case was publicized for the type of car they were driving. I think that if it was rusted out corollas, this would not happen. Yes, these guys were talking shit I'm sure, and someone in the group probably even said, "do you know who my father is?"
That has nothing to do with the gov't now stripping their possessions as punishment. That has nothing to do with this being a largely unfair penalty. If I was able to hang with a lambo in my shitty work truck, and we both get caught, and we both lose our vehicles to forfeiture, well, I'm out a significantly less valuable item to replace, aren't I?
And I'll add, get over yourself on this board thinking you are above anyone else.
