Whether this should be the law whether, in the absence of a judicial finding of guilt, the state should be able to take possession of your property has been debated since before American independence. In the Colonial period, the English Crown issued writs of assistance that permitted customs officials to enter homes or vessels and seize whatever they deemed contraband. As the legal scholars Eric Blumenson and Eva Nilsen have noted, these writs were among the key grievances that triggered the American Revolution. The new nations Bill of Rights would expressly forbid unreasonable searches and seizures and promise that no one would be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process. Nonetheless, Congress soon authorized the use of civil forfeiture actions against pirates and smugglers. It was easier to prosecute a vessel and seize its cargo than to try to prosecute its owner, who might be an ocean away. In the ensuing decades, the practice fell into disuse and, aside from a few brief revivals, remained mostly dormant for the next two centuries.

Forfeiture in its modern form began with federal statutes enacted in the nineteen-seventies and aimed not at waitresses and janitors but at organized crime bosses and drug lords. Lawenforcement officers were empowered to seize money and goods tied to the production of illegal drugs. Later amendments allowed the seizure of anything thought to have been purchased with tainted funds, whether or not it was connected to the commission of a crime. Even then, forfeiture remained an infrequent resort until 1984, when Congress passed the Comprehensive Crime Control Act. It established a special fond that turned over proceeds from forfeitures to

The rings of Jupiter

Did you know that Jupiter has rings like Saturn? Only recently have we been able to study them.

The gas giants Jupiter and Saturn have been known about and observed since ancient history. During the Renaissance period and with the dawn of the telescope, Saturn was characterised by its mesmerising ring system whereas Jupiter was the hulking brute of the Solar System, known for the swirling tempest blooming on its south equatorial belt that was later dubbed the Great Red Spot. Scientists identified a similar ring system on Uranus, so when Voyager 1 began its flyby of Jupiter in early

Strum Face

We all love the odd bout of air guitar but, as Adi Vines discovered to his horror, it’s all about perspective

Festival season is almost upon us again and a certain type of guitarist will no doubt be looking forward to the Oulu Music Video Festival in Finland, as this is the home of the Air Guitar World Championships.

NEED TO KNOW SONYS 4K SECRETS

You can swap your 40in TV for a 65in one

All those extra pixels mean that you can comfortably sit closer to the screen, as Scot Barbour, Vice President of Production Technology at Sony Pictures, explains. “Basically, to be able to even see 4K resolution, there’s a given distance sweet spot from the screen, one and a half screen heights away. So you’re going to want to have a bigger screen and be closer to it to actually be able to perceive 4K for what it’s really about.” What’s that? Not just a new TV, but a bigger one? OK…

Embracing Limitations

I don’t always get the chance to practice what I preach—nor report back on the experience. But having made «A New Case for Compacts» in this column in our July issue, I decided to take a break from my interchangeable-lens cameras during my summer vacation, and travel with only a fixed-lens compact.

Not just any fixed-lens compact, though: I brought along Sony’s new Cyber-shot RX1R, a 24.3 MP full-frame with a 35mm f/2 Carl Zeiss Sonar T* lens. The only difference between it and the original RX1? The low-pass filter over the sensor was removed for enhanced sharpness.
