Brock Turner wasn't a famous athlete

College athletes can be pretty famous locally, and college alumni can be pretty influential in their communities.  Wouldn't be surprised if the judge was a former frat boy at that school.  Maybe even on the football team.

It wasn't his boat, he was just on it.  Also he was a minor at the time and it was probably around 1993-95 when I was told the story at least five years after the fact and don't recall the details about his own legal consequences.  His uncle wasn't too happy with him I'm pretty sure of that.

I've lived on the Gulf of Mexico most of my life and only gone deep sea fishing once.  The owner of the charter made it VERY clear that if anyone came on his boat with drugs it could cost him his business.  I thought that was damned unfair.  How is a business owner whose primary customer base comes from tourism going to be able to guarantee some kid isn't going to forget or simply ignore the instructions and keep a bag of weed or something on him?

It's drug shipments by boat that created that particular mess.  A customer could charter a boat with a few kilos of coke and use the poor guy as an unwitting smuggler.

I can see how the government would USE that excuse but the bottom line in OS example was an out of control law enforcement agency taking someone's property just because they could.  There should be limits to that authority.

There should.  Eminent domain and police seizures are quite abused.

Zero tolerance for something that shouldn't by illegal is inherently unfair.
