Just read about this decision. It seems to be one of the few issues that had widespread support from both sides of the political aisle and was a unanimous Supreme Court decision. A rarity.

Too often people have been stripped of their property even when no crime was committed. People have sold property and were carrying cash for new purchases, only to be stopped and have their money taken by law enforcement as if they were criminals. Even when there was a crime, seizures of belongings were excessive and was a tempting practice by local police and sheriff's to fund their departments.
