I used to respect cops, then I was robbed by them, literally. Now, I wouldn't piss on a cop if he were on fire.

All this off a stop for no blinkers, but the video shows he did use a blinker. Makes me think the police knew they were poker players and targeted them.

Poker players sued - won and in the end, left Iowa with $150, 000 ($90, 000 that was returned and $60, 000 in damages). Of course, it took a long time for them to get it back (3.5 years!). Don't be afraid to sue your government I guess is the real lesson here.

Theft by badge! Civil asset forfeiture is absolute BS!

even if they gave them $90, 000 back that still doesn't regain their trust in cops

The offending State Troopers were Justin Simmons and Eric VanderWiel. The State returned $90, 000 of the $100, 020 that was seized. The two poker players filed lawsuits and won an additional $60K. So they came out with $150K but most likely lost the bonus $50K in lawyer fees. Iowa Department of Public Safety has disbanded the interdiction team.

Desert Snow, eh? We'll keep an eye out for them. Teaching Cops to be criminals is the most extreme form of Oreganized Crime I ever heard of.
