One way for Democrats................
...........to reclaim the mantle of being the party "for the people," would be to vow to stop civil forfeiture. Megan McArdle weighs in. This whole concept is madness. What is Sessions thinking? I can think of no one I would trust with this sort of power.
But the Founding Fathers were not unaware that bad people would sometimes get away if prosecutors had a high burden of proof to meet. They were not unaware that some of those people would go on to do further bad things. What they understood, and Sessions apparently does not, is that there are even worse things than crime, and one of them is a government that is allowed to steal our liberty like a thief in the night.
