    Over $60K Raised for Vendor After Police Seize His Money

    A video showing University of California police ticketing an unlicensed street vendor and seizing money from his wallet at UC Berkeley went viral on social media this weekend, drawing criticism from those who claim the officer went too far by confiscating the man’s money.

    Now, a*GoFundMe*to support the street vendor has collected more than $60,000, as of Tuesday morning.*A petition*to fire the police officer who issued the citation has collected more than 34,000 signatures

    Martin Flores, who wrote on social media that he had attended the game with his children, captured footage of UC police officer Sean Aranas approaching the vendor and writing him a citation for selling food without a proper permit, a violation of Berkeley’s municipal code.



    Aranas then went into the man’s wallet and took money from it.*

    I know the guy didn't have a permit, but there has to be bigger fish to fry :/

    And going in his wallet and taking his money is crap, too.

    How did the cop know what he started with? Maybe he had $40 in there and only sold $20.

    I don't know, man....
