GoFundMe Raises $60K For Hot Dog Vendor After Cops Stole His Earnings

By Dawn Luger

(Now $70K – Ed.) Thousands of people have donated tens of thousands of dollars to the hot dog vendor who had his earnings stolen from him by the police. Hot dog vendor Juan’s wallet was taken and the campus cop helped himself to some the vendor’s hard-earned money for the crime of selling hot dogs with out first paying to obtain permission from the government to do so.

Cop apologists feel that theft of this man was the “right thing to do” because Juan was operating his business without a license. Customer Martin Flores was buying hot dogs outside this Saturday’s UC Berkeley football game when his purchase was interrupted by the police. That’s when Flores started recording the now viral incident on his cell phone.

The cop can be heard saying “this is law and order in action.” To most, it appears like a scene straight of 1940s East Berlin. And witnesses and those who watched the video appeared to agree.

The next morning, Flores started a GoFundMe page to help the vendor with “personal, legal and professional matters.” He called the campaign “OfficialJustice4Juan&StreetVendors.” The campaign was set to raise $10,000 to help Juan, and “to cover other vendors who have been robbed of their hard earned living through citations and the removal of their carts.” As of now, it’s raised over $60,000 and it is continuing to rise quickly.

Apparently, that thin blue line is thinning even more.

The University of California Police Department has also responded to the video, with spokeswoman Sgt. Sabrina Reich stating the $60 was “seized as suspected proceeds of the violation and booked into evidence.”

She also said that three other people were detained by campus police on charges of vending without a license, Berkeleyside reports. They, however, were released with a warning and not ticketed and their compensation for selling was not stolen by the police.

If cops have ever wondered why they have such horrible relations with the public, look no further than this incident. And based on the amount of money this GoFundMe campaign has already raised, many are siding with Juan.

  1. I would think that all of the vendors that did it legally and paid their money for their licenses would be a bit pissed at some random foreigner that’s once again thinking he should be allowed to ignore the laws of a country he’s invaded that everyone else is expected to obey. Lawbreakers should not get an advantage over those that do it right solely because of their skin color. That would be actual racism, isn’t it liberal?

    Sorry, Paco. You have to go back.

  2. First, thank you Dawn Luger for your article which has brought about more awareness. Secondly, I would like to say, “Wow” I did not think racist people would come to this site and comment like the one below. This is the problem with America now, that is, there is too much discrimination and racism. The world knows this to be true.
    The very sad part of all this is that with this president and administration it has become more accepted to discriminate against others of different color, religion, etc. The country of Mexico with its culture and people have been discriminated for many decades and now it has gone to another level.The Mexican have become the whipping boy of America. You don’t want the Mexican but you sure love the food. More people need to rise up and confront those whom wish to attack others because they are different because if you don’t soon you too will become the target. Not good.

    • Yep land of the free – as long as you pay pay and pay some more to all the government agencies, employees and anyone else that shows a badge !

      Here ya go, trying to make every potato political. Like it’s Don’s fault Juan had his money stolen. Obama was racially divisive – hell, he went out of his way. That’s why the country is now so racially storming.

  3. Hey, its a free country – but only if you pay , pay, and pay to every swingin dick in the Government.

  4. History show us that between the lowest and the highest hierarchy is always a defense layer. The highest hierarchy is actually powerless against the people but they create that illusion by shielding themselves with police and military forces. And to make things work, those same defense forces are subject to efficient brain washing and mind control. Even more than the lowest hierarchy,

    I think “the people” are sufficiently awakened already and more and more are resorting to alternative media.
    The major problem in our hands, right now, is to address that middle layer. What can we do to make them see they’re the major slaves in the game?

    • We will not be able to wake them up until everything they know collapses… and they start asking, “why?”…. They are too comfortable in their lives and do not see the collapse coming… They see something but “rationalize” it….. believing what they are told by Liberals….

  5. That was an illegal immigrant, why don’t y’all do gooders raise 80k for an American to start a business?

    • then why not just deport him? Oh… not in that sanctuary city. He will learn what communism is, first hand. ….and how the free market came to his rescue. Now, take that money and hire an attorney so you can be here legally!

  6. The granting of special privileges via licensing is prohibited by the constitution, the law of the land. Try getting your communist oppressors to obey it and see if they don’t point guns at you. If you are lucky you may live. I learned a long time ago that they are not my government. In fact my attorney advised me to leave the country or to take up arms. Study the 10 elements of communism. All are in affect. Why do you give up your rights to liberty and your God-given right to survive by accepting licensing/ taxation from communists?

  7. Wow , Law and Order from UC Berzerkley . Take money from a hot dog seller , minority person , OMG , Freaking hypocrites. I love what they are teaching there. Hitler would be proud of his new Brownshirt SA.Of course now they are graduating to wearing black like the SS.

    BTW , Freeph , It isn’t the presidents doing , UC is YOUR favorite unliberal , regressives who all preach anti – Americanism. Get your head out of your rear and learn just who the racists are in America. They live and breed on campuses like UC Berzerkley. The President is not a racist , and I can’t stand Mexican food and I do not want ILLEGAL aliens thinking they are OK to break our laws. As for what the world thinks , they can go to hell. They gave us Hitler , Tojo , Mussolini , Stalin , Lenin ,Attila the Hun and other great people. We gave them Washington , Jefferson , and Trump.
    The cops were wrong in how they DID NOT handle that situation but it has nothing to do with racism. It was pure stupidity and pure thievery on their part , and just NORMAL stupidity from UC Berzerkley.

    “Seized and booked into evidence”. And already spent. That’s how policing for profit works. This guy would have to pay for the privilege of getting his money returned.
