"What Texas Police Are Doing Is Law Enforcement Corruption at Its Very Worst" cites and excerpts this piece from PolicyMic, criticizing forfeiture. In part:

The District Attorney's office in Texas' Tarrant County seized $3.5 million along with 246 cars and 440 computers in fiscal year 2013, according to an investigation by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Of this, $843,636 went to salaries for the office's 16 employees. The county's narcotics unit also seized $666,427 in cash, with $426,058 going to salaries.
