Thanks for the clarification on the burden of proof. I suppose that's one reason it is criticized.
I used to work with a retired federal agent (agency will remain unidentified) who said they used to wait until drug dealers bought expensive cars and then seize them. The agents could then drive them as their "work" vehicle. That practice was later stopped.
