If private businesses are held legally accountable to the public, why isn't government?
The Utah Highway Patrol seized money from a person not suspected of a crime, and then gave it to the federal government—circumventing state law that prohibited them from doing so.
Holding a raccoon or allowing a swine to run at large can land you in jail in Utah… but with new legislation on the way, hopefully for not much longer.
Utah law gives police immunity from being sued if they negligently injure a suspect being pursued in a high speed chase—even in cases where they may not have followed the law.
Being presumed innocent sounds great in theory, but in practice, people are held in jail for weeks or months before trial if they're unable to pay the government money.
