Bataillon ordered that Mishra receive cash or a check in the value of $1,074,000 with interest.

Oh, snap. That's the kicker. Good for her.

Nice. I can't really think of anything less American than confiscating your cash for the crime of...having cash. I hope she sues the sh*t out of them for damages.

the base assumption is that if you look suspicious then you are guilty.  you have to PROVE that you are innocent.  what's really gonna suck is when the cops have to explain how they lost the cash and can't pay this woman back.

That's true, if by "lost the cash" you mean "bought helicopters, boner-rific high-powered patrol cars, paperwork overtime, and whizz-bang SWAT training/uniforms for Officer Cletus."

Just another day on the job for the Drug War.

I'm sure all 700,000.00 we be returned.

I'm sure the IRS won't take any interest in this, because strippers always file accurate tax returns.

15 years as a stripper?

I'm not sure I believe her story but the cops still have no right to take her money.

But now the IRS is going to be coming for their share.

$1,000,000??

That's a lot of ass pennies.

if you have a million dollars in your trunk and the cops ask to search your vehicle, tell them no.

It would be funny if someone swooped in and bought the nightclub they were going to buy in the meantime and the hos get to sue for damages.

They emailed it to the NSA. It's unrecoverable.

First of all, it looks like their story checks out, so maybe it is true. It's not unbelievable.

I see now problem however, with the actions of the police: You stop a car for speeding, something looks a bit weird, you search the car, find an amount of cash that is far more than you expect given the brand of car and attire of the drivers, you have to assume something is wrong.

On a final note: you must be one hell of a friend if I let you drive off with a million of my dollars. Especially if I would have trouble proving my ownership in front of a court.

Unfortunately, the interest will likely come from tax dollars. So, good for her but the cops farked up and now the people have to pick up the tab.
 
2013-07-24 07:57:34 AM  
She's not getting that money back for a long time.

$1 million in savings after 15 years.
 
2013-07-24 08:02:25 AM  
Why on earth would you ever transport a million dollars in cash?  That's farking insane. It's not like they are going to pick out a nightclub and then walk the real estate agent to the trunk of their car and just had them bundles of cash, so it's going to end up in the bank at some point anyway so why risk transporting it like that?
 
2013-07-24 08:04:12 AM  
She likely could have avoided this had she kept the money in a bank. Not that this excuses the pigs for confiscating it in the first place.
 
2013-07-24 08:04:25 AM  
That's how immigrants work. They work, they save for the future every penny.
Unlike Americans who live only for today, while struggling with bills for yesterday and unable to afford a tomorrow.
 
2013-07-24 08:04:59 AM  
Bad move.

When the IRS finishes with her she'll be up to her shiny thong in debt.

Thing is, you can't lose cash. Unlike selling off a prized possession seized in a drug raid, cash is interchangeable. They are pretty much farked at this point, as the longer they wait, the more interest compounds.

I spent the last fifteen years getting an education and working in science. I have virtually no savings. She has a million dollars. And people mistakenly accuse ME of being smart because I have a PhD!

/not that anyone would pay that much to see my ding-dong anyway....

By law the club itself is responsible for counting and reporting all tip income on the employees W2 form. So if the club was doing its work properly, that cash should be post-tax.

It is Standard Operating Proceedure for cops.  Merchants who buy inventory at auctions are particularly hard-hit.
 
2013-07-24 08:09:54 AM  
Interesting how possession of cash alone provides all the suspicion police think they need to screw you for drug activities.
 
2013-07-24 08:09:57 AM  
So they write her a check, which she'll have to deposit, and which will be taxed. She got screwed in the deal, regardless. Though maybe in the long run it will be better for her. She was about to blow a million on a nightclub in New Jersey.

You need to think this through. The American plan is only a failure if you insist that you have to have a mountain of cash to leave your children. If you die deeply in debt, having paid for your kids' college and so forth over the years, from my perspective that's a win. My target is to die while owing more (hopefully WAY more) than I've paid in interest on my mortgage and so forth.

I don't know who sets the interest rates in cases like this, but banks only pay about 0.1% interest these days.

Attire of the driver means nothing. Two of the richest people I have met personally dress like average working class slobs, dirty clothes rusty cars and both are multimillionaires one owned property and packing plants  from the LA area to Mexico and worked in the fields with his workers. The other only has a bed a rocking chair, dresser and radio in his one bedroom house.

BraveNewCheneyWorld: Interesting how possession of cash alone provides all the suspicion police think they need to screw you for drug activities.


In the south, it is pretty routine for cops to stop non-white drivers and confiscate anything they take a fancy to.  One particularly egregious Texas sheriff was confiscating the cars as well.

RecentGrad: By law the club itself is responsible for counting and reporting all tip income on the employees W2 form. So if the club was doing its work properly, that cash should be post-tax.


Not really, increasingly many businesses are handling their employees like independent contractors in which case all reporting and tax liability are on the worker end. I don't employ dancers for instance, I just rent them space so they can work their trade independently.

Tattoo shops, hair dressers, massage parlors and many others have been doing this for years.

This is as rare as the Hope diamond.  This will never happen again, someone will pass a law to make sure of it.  Never carry cash, ever.  The corrupt police and government officials depend on it.

Two things.

1) So much for that pesky 4th amendment

2) No matter WHAT a cop says NEVER consent to a god dammed thing. They are not your friends.


The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized

I think it is important to see a picture of the woman before judgement can be made. Just saying.
