    Forfeiture laws are ridiculous anyway....an invitation to police corruption

    For a misdemeanor like not having a vendors license. A ticket and a fine should suffice

    The police have no right to go through your wallet

    Actually ... not true. A police officer can go through your wallet if you're under arrest to ...

    1. Confirm ID
    2. Catalog currency and valuables
    3. Search for drugs

    Anything they find needs to be accounted for and documented, then stored in an evidence bag.

    The vendor was not under arrest
    He was being given a ticket

    The officer can ask for ID but is not entitled to go through your wallet to find it
