The 1-80 drug stops are places where a lot of hanky-panky has been going on for some time. But the really sad thing is that the money confiscation scandal is justified by a sheriff in Nevada.

Ed Kilgore is like any other sheriff you may come across. But all this is only so at first sight. Look deeper and you will see that a lot of cleaning needs to be done in the attic. His (1-80 drug stops) justification for the confiscating of tens of thousands of dollars worth of money from drug dealers who get caught is strange. 

The sheriff lets them go scot-free and just seizes their money. If this is the law then the law is an ass! The sheriff has responded to the charges by saying that he never did anything illegal in 1-80 drug stops. 

Two men are bringing charges against him in the court of law. One is from California and the other one is from Colorado. Cash amounting to $13,800 and $50,000 was seized from these two men respectively.

Kilgore has tried to be evasive about the matter. But it seems more than just false props are needed to keep up appearances in his case. 

Kilgore spoke of how police officers normally stop you and ask for your name and legal documents. They don’t ask for money. But both the men who have sued Kilgore say pretty much the same things about how they were dealt with by Kilgore. 

No charges were brought against them but instead their vehicles were detained and their money too. One of the lawyers representing them has stated that this is a wild law a la Jesse James or Black Bart. 

There are fears that Kilgore has given the (1-80 drug stops) law a bad name. Any individual has the right to prove before a judge that the money he has is rightfully his alone. 

And besides, this sort of jungle law places the onus on the suspect instead of the innocent until proven guilty norm. It is a very delicate matter and the authorities are the ones who have some explaining to do.
