Shocking video shows a UC Berkeley campus cop taking all the earnings of a hot dog vendor because he didn't have a permit - and now people are raising thousands to cover his losses

In the video, taken by alumnus Martin Flores on Saturday afternoon, a UCPD officer is seen pulling cash out of the vendor’s wallet and folding it into his hand.
The vendor objects and stands by as the officer puts the money away and begins to write a citation.
