I understand getting ticketed for not having a license but taking the money out of his wallet was bullshit.
The officer stole from an innocent mans wallet. He is the only one who should be arrested. This hot dog salesmen did nothing wrong. Leave these innocent people alone. I can't even concieve what people are going thru, to be judged by their natural born skin color, to be judged for the sins and crimes of other men. If we are to believe that this is a free country, then we need stand up for the rights of other's who also want to believe they too are free. Only those who commit crimes against other's need be confronted accordingly, not those who are trying to feed their families and live a peaceful life. To the precious man in this photo who is blatantly being harrassed and offended, and molested by a suposed officer of the law, my heart is with you and your dear family, and you are welcome in this country, I will not say my country, "for this land is your land, this land is my land, this land was made for you and me, and I will fight for your peace, and your right to the same freedom God meant for one and all. We love you❤
Civil forfeiture is legal and can happen to you. It should be a larger issue and I hope this creates dialogue. A disgusting practice.
Good.the cop was just an asshole. Treat the guy like a man and tell him " I hate to shut you down but you have to move from this location without a permit, I'll give you an hour ". Then go fight real crime. Asshole
How could the officer know how much of that money in the wallet was hot-dog profits and how much was from another job??
What's wrong with the cop just showing some empathy, politely taking the guy aside to not cause embarrassment, and simply tell him that unfortunately he's not allowed to do this and that he really doesn't want to have to fine him or for the guy to get into trouble, therefore he needs to move on.
I bet the officer thinks he is right. I bet he thinks he was just "doing his job."
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good souls to do nothing.
Makes perfect sense ticketing someone for selling without a permit. Going into a man's wallet and stealing his money? No. I don't care what law justifies it. Glad to see the dollars in support of this guy are rising just as fast as the signatures on the petition to have the officer fired. Sometimes basic human decency should be the only law practiced.
I grew up in the 70's , I was a rebellious kid and always referred to the police as "pigs". After college and growing up a little bit, I learn to respect the police force as they were here to protect us. Now it's 2017 and I'm 58 years old and I am back to calling them "pigs".
Prove he didn't have that cash in his wallet BEFORE he started trading that day. If the "cop" - a disgrace to the uniform - can't prove it, he's actually robbing an honest man on camera.
