OK, Conservatives, You Care About This?




Every Wednesday morning, Texas highest criminal court releases its judicial opinions. We had a doozy this morning. Two guys were in a truck that had a half million dollars in cash. No drugs were found. The case wasn't about whether the government could seize the cash, it's whether the evidence was sufficient to uphold a criminal conviction for "money laundering" (that is, the "proceeds were from the delivery of a controlled substance") which earned the driver an eight year sentence and the passenger with a ten year sentence.

Yep, we'll lock you up for that.

Big government? Over-reaching government?
