The Oklahoma Highway Patrol has a device that allows them to seize money in your bank account or on prepaid cards. Should this be outlawed unless the person is convicted?
  • Yes, this vioaltes the 5th Amendment

    Yes, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol's device that allows them to seize money from individuals committing infractions is in direct violation of an important clause of the 5th amendment that says an individual is innocent until proven guilty. This right needs to be protected, so the device should be outlawed until the person is convicted in a court of law.

  • Yes, it is unjustifiable to seize money unless the person is convicted.

    It should not be legal to seize a person's money unless they are convicted of a crime. This is an invasive practice that could lead to a great deal of trouble for a person who is wrongly suspected of a crime. It could also lead to corruption in the police system. The criminal justice system operates under the principle that a person is innocent until proven guilty, and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol should follow the same standard.

  • Yes it should be outlawed.

    When writing the Constitution of the United States our founding father were smart enough to include due process and the right of every citizen to a fair and speedy trial. This device essentially convicts someone before they are afforded that right and should be outlawed or used after a suspect has been convicted

  • Right To A Secure Bank Account

    Not only should this be outlawed unless convicted, but this should be out-lawed all together. Certain liberates should be protected and who has access to your bank account should be one. And having a prepaid card that police can take money off of seems like a way of encouraging people to speed. It is almost like having a get-out-of-jail free card in your pocket. Well the money is there, I should probably use it.
