UC Berkeley police officer cites street vendor, takes cash

UC Berkeley police officer cites street vendor, takes cash

The bystander, who has identified himself as UC Berkeley alumnus Martin Flores, tells the officer what he was doing was "not right". The video, taken after Saturday's Cal football game, also shows the officer doing through the street vendor's wallet and taking out his cash.

The officer soon responds to Flores' concerns, saying, "We'll take it to the judge and the judge can decide whether or not it's right". Martin launched a GoFundMe effort for the vendor, identified only as Juan, with a $10,000 goal.

There are new developments Monday after an interaction between a U.C. Berkeley police officer and a hot dog vendor at Saturday's Cal game.

In the absence of much detail from authorities in recent days, some hypothesized that civil forfeiture rules allowed the officer to confiscate the money to be booked into evidence.

"This is law and order in action", Mr Aranas replies.

UN Security Council to vote on lighter North Korea sanctions
President Donald Trump dismissed the latest United Nations sanctions on North Korea as insignificant. North Korea said its Sept 3 test was of an advanced hydrogen bomb and was its most powerful by far.

In a second video, which was also removed, Flores also suggests to Aranas, and later to another officer, that they should instead be ticketing others who are illegally drinking on campus. UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof told KTVU-TV that the officer in question had been given the task of enforcing vending violations on the campus by people without a permit and added that UCPD was investigating the situation.

As the video continued to rack up views late into Monday afternoon, UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy issued a statement reiterating the school's commitment to creating a "climate of tolerance, inclusion, and diversity". "We are looking into the incident". Refusing to acknowledge how deeply engrained the practice is within immigrant and Latino communities-and ignoring the many practical ways local officials and law enforcement could work with these groups-is irresponsible and a waste of everyone's time. According to the Justice4Juan fundraiser page, proceeds will be "utilized to cover legal and personal loses".

More than 31,000 people have signed a petition titled "Remove S. Aranas #76 from University of California Police Department". So far, it's raised more than $51,000. A college official said the officer was following instructions to crack down on illegal vendors outside the campus event venues.

He said each of those three people was released with a warning.

UC Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof told Berkeleyside on Sunday that they're now looking into the matter.
