    Video: Cop Writes Ticket for Selling Hot Dogs without a Permit Then Takes the Cash

    http://digg.com/2017/berkeley-cop-cash-hot-dog

    Civil forfeiture, which allows police to permanently seize assets from suspects as part of an investigation, has risen dramatically in recent years.

    But rarely has the controversial process been visualized more starkly than this video shot in Berkeley, California over the weekend, in which Officer Sean Aranas writes a man a ticket for selling hot dogs without a permit and then opens up the man's wallet and removes every bit of cash.

    That's not an issue.

    Sanctuary and all that.

    Plus, if he deported him the cop wouldn't get a chance to rob him again in the future.

    You are right, It's Berkely, sanctuary site and all that. But going in that man's wallet and taking his money is BS.

    Bingbingbing, we have a WINNAH!!!!!. If this vendor is from where I think he is from, he's quite used to an officer generated sidewalk operation tax.

    Yup.

    Mission creep. Nothing new under the sun.

    They are literally taught to do that for effect. Helps build a narrative.
