Proponents of forfeiture say it is the only way for governments to stop rich criminals, such as drug lords.
If such suspects can keep their wealth, the argument says, they can afford to fight forever in court.
Even if they lose the court case, they look forward to being rich once they get out of prison.
Critics of forfeiture say that it involves unreasonable seizures and does not involve due process of law.
Furthermore, forfeiture rules can encourage money-hungry individuals and governments to prey on people like Mr. and Mrs. Dale.
Rewards up to 25% of the forfeiture value can be given to people or to local police departments who inform on suspected criminals.
