Do you think these Feds should go to jail?

Lydon McLellan lost all his money but was it legal or was it plain theft?

In an instant, his business account was gone. And then it got worse.

Rumors quickly spread in the tiny town that McLellan’s money was frozen because of suspected ties to drugs, fraying the good reputation he’d spent years building in the community.

“Several people thought it was drug-related but when I told them what really happened they said, ‘How in the world can they take your money?’ That’s the answer I’ve been waiting on too,” he said.

McLellan claims he didn’t do anything wrong. The IRS has never alleged he committed a crime nor has the agency brought any criminal charges against him. Instead, McLellan, 50, was verbally accused of structuring cash deposits to avoid bank reporting requirements, under a measure originally meant to target drug dealers, terrorists and others trying to launder money through criminal activity.

On the hot seat before Congress, the IRS Commissioner commented that this case “Wasn’t policy”.   I’d say it’s more than that, it’s unconstitutional, it’s unfair and egregious.   It’s French (to quote Mark Twain).
