In this episode, we embark on an investigative journey deep into the heart of civil asset forfeiture laws and practices, exploring their impact on individuals, families, and communities in Oklahoma. Civil asset forfeiture allows law enforcement agencies to seize property suspected of being involved in criminal activity, even if the property owners are not charged with a crime. This powerful tool has raised significant ethical and legal questions, sparking debates nationwide.

By delving into civil asset forfeiture, we hope to foster a deeper understanding of the complexities surrounding law enforcement practices and their impact on our communities.
