It is an unconstitutional abuse of Governmental power to steal private proterty without due process. If tried and convicted with the loss of the cars being an established punishment via legislation then fine. The SCPD nor any other agency should be able to take property without due process.

It is easy to accept this against racers and DUI drivers but the same abuse of power can be applied at ANY TIME as soon as the precedent is set.

Before you go calling people idiots, you should re-read the article. Here is a quote...

"Two men were arrested Tuesday night after a police officer in an unmarked car saw them engage in a high-speed car race on the Long Island Expressway service road in Holtsville, the Suffolk police said."

You know that they say about people in glass houses...

Pardon me, 80 mph a high speed chase? I've been passed by little old ladies at that speed, anything less and you are an obstruction to the traffic flow. Mabye the officers figured their cars were dysfunctional, not able to exceed 80 mph. C'mon, give the kids a break, they won't forget you for it.
First of all, 80 is way above the posted legal speed limit, and they were a danger to themselves and other drivers. Second, if the "kids" were given a break, they would no doubt immediately forget the favor, and soon thereafter repeat this reckless behavior. Who are you kidding?

I read the article twice, and it clearly stated that they were racing on the Long Island Expressway SERVICE ROAD. Exactly who doesn't have the comprehension to understand what the article says, Paul?

Did you slip on some olive oil when you were a child and hit your head? That couldn't have been it, since you are still a child.

Police can and do seize contraband, and the fruits, instrumentalities, and evidence of crimes every day based on probable cause. Forfeiture proceedings are then brought against the property later in court. This is done so that the contraband, evidence etc. doesn't disappear before a court hearing can take place. It is done all the time, and is legal, provided that the police act within the law, and there is probable cause to seize said property.

Street racing started right after the second car was built. The only way to curb it (Pun intended) is to have a legal and safe place to do it. And I don't mean a 100 mile drive (ONE-WAY!) to Englishtown, NJ which between gas, tolls, entrance fees can easily exceed $100. Some communities have tried outreach programs to organize a Friday night 'Grudge Race' at a safe site.

The speed limit on the service road is 40 mph. I don't condone it, but that particular stretch is pretty desolate.

Give them a dragstrip and put a brick wall at the end of it. That should solve all the problems.
