Don’t Ask How Much Money the Police Have Taken

NYPDOddly, the New York City Police Department claims that it can’t determine how much money it has seized from citizens over the past four years.  Apparently, New York City has taken so much money through civil forfeiture in the past four years that it can’t count it all.  The NYPD claims that just trying to figure out how much it has taken through civil forfeiture over that 4-year period would crash its computer system.  For more information, see the article by Sean Gallagher of ArsTechnica, courtesy of Overlawyered.  Of course, if the police seize more money from citizens than the police can count, why should they need or get more money from city tax revenues to fund their operations?
