  • Each state has their own laws concerning where that money goes. Here in PA the money is put towards the public school system and other public works. In other states it's different. In many it goes towards criminal housing and in some it even goes to anti-crime programs.

    There are alot of crooked cops, yes. But as a whole they are generally well meaning public servants. And in most cases they do put the money where it belongs. You can usually check the numbers around tax time and find out exactly what goes where, but that takes some leg work.

  • Property, such as cars will probably be auctioned off and the money goes to the government to offset the cost of law enforcement, I believe.
