Default Civil Forfeiture Detroit...Be Aware.

The laws in MI were historically quite horrendous so reform was signed into law in several years ago, but the city of Detroit pivoted to a different interpretation of the law.

As an example years ago a property owners were served a search warrant on property, but was never charged, nor was any evidence of law breaking found. Law enforcement still seized a restored 1965 NOVA SS and the trailer it was stored in. Camaros, Mustangs, and Ferrari's seized as well in the last decade.

The newest and latest battle involved youtubers Dream cars daily.

Be aware. IF I am understanding this correctly the Detroit police could see you spectating at Woodward and someone turns the tires, and you are simply near the event your car can be selectively seized.

Please do not make this thread political. Increasingly it appears we are having trouble discussing anything serious on the forum without forum rules getting looked at and entire threads deleted as a result.

Stay south of the Mason Dixon. And people wonder why there’s a population Exodus from the northern tier states.

Reminds me of the nightmare endured by COPO Pete (Simpson)

I think the nightmare with Pete's car was due to it being stolen and brought to the reserve.

Here is another perspective on this. Looks like they were going street racing in Detroit in their own words and video of the white car racing a Hellcat.

Yes, stolen by members of the reservation and the reservation LEO’s were in on it.
