Now now children! Play nice. Speaking of stealing...how bout sneaking over to the refridgerator and stealing me a nice ice cold beer! Seriously though I have thought about this issue a bit myself. I'm not saying I am for or against it but is it stealing to take ill gotten goods from crooks for the purpose of financing your own crusade? Well one thing for sure, if you busted a thief and didn't see to it that what he stole was returned to the rightful owner you are just as guilty as he is. But what about drug money? That can't and shouldn't be returned. Certainly the drug dealer doesn't deserve it! In some places it is legal for the police department to use such money to buy new equipment for the war against drugs. (in fact there is a problem with police in some areas taking money on trumped up charges to add to the departments funds) Anyhow however you want to look at it morally I'm sure that it is illegal and can get you arrested.
