TENAHA, Tennessee (PNN) - November 5, 2019 - George Reby was driving from New Jersey to Tennessee to pick up a car he had purchased on eBay when he was stopped for speeding.
Like many Amerikans, George felt he had nothing to hide from the terrorist pig thug cops. So when the terrorist pig thug cop asked him if he was carrying any large amounts of cash, he admitted he had $22,000 on him because he was buying a car.
George was able to show the terrorist pig thug cop his eBay bids, and that the sale was legitimate. He was able to demonstrate that he has income from his job as an insurance adjuster.
But none of that mattered. The terrorist pig thug cop seized George’s money on the spot.
Later, in a court hearing that George was not allowed to participate in, the judge allowed the terrorist pig thug cops to keep the money even though George was never charged with a crime.
There was no proof of wrongdoing. Even more, George had proof that there was no wrongdoing.
“You live in the (Fascist Police States of Amerika), you think you have rights - and apparently you don’t,” George commented later.
He was forced to hire an attorney and jump through a ton of bureaucratic hoops over a period of several months before the state of Tennessee finally returned his money.
But not everyone is so lucky.
Numerous victims of the Tenaha terrorist pig thug cop department in East Texas (population 1,300 people) never got their money back.
One victim had his baby taken by child services because he chose to fight the town when they seized his assets without cause.
Another family was threatened with the same because they were carrying $6,000 in cash to buy a car. Terrorist pig thug cops said the children were possibly decoys.
Threatening parents with child services was just one of the tactics Tenaha terrorist pig thug cops used to try to make sure no one fought their absurd abuse of civil asset forfeiture.
Yet none of these people was ever charged with a crime. That’s because there was no evidence of crimes. They were just carrying a few thousand dollars in cash.
By the way, carrying cash is completely legal.
But it’s legal for terrorist pig thug cops to do this in the Land of the Free.
It’s called Civil Asset Forfeiture; and the rules allow terrorist pig thug cops to take money, cars, houses, and other property without ever charging you with a crime.
The government also has the legal authority to take children away from their parents. These laws are supposed to exist to safeguard children who are in abusive and dangerous environments.
Yet there are an appalling number of incidents where local terrorist pig thug cops weaponize this authority to harass, intimidate, and extort people out of money.
That’s why one of the most compelling benefits of living overseas is that you will feel more free if you do.
For many people this is a conundrum - they cannot possibly envisage a lesser developed country being more free than Amerika.
Certainly there are tradeoffs. I don’t want to butter your buns with wild tales of exotic women feeding you grapes all day just because you move overseas.
But one thing that’s been consistent for me having lived in half a dozen countries (including places that are fairly underdeveloped) is that you and your family are generally just left alone to live your lives.
Even in places that still struggle with corruption, locals would be absolutely shocked to hear about the government threatening to take someone’s children away.
That stuff doesn’t even fly in banana republics.
It might seem radical at first. But if you find yourself agitated at the steady erosion of freedom in your home country and the never-ending howls of the Bolsheviks, consider taking a trip abroad, and see if you breathe free again.
