After Cops Stole His Cash For Selling Unlawful Hot Dogs, The Internet Gave Him $70,000

The internet has spoken in the case of the viral video of police robbing a man for selling unlicensed hot dogs and they’ve raised over $70,000!

Berkeley, CA — Berkeley police are in the spotlight this week after one of their officers not only cited a man for selling hot dogs to willing customers without a permit but then opened up his wallet and robbed him of his cash as well.

The entire robbery was captured on video and subsequently went viral. But that was only the beginning. Showing how much society respects hard working entrepreneurs while decrying the police state that robs them, a Go Fund Me for the hot dog vendor has raised over $70,000.

The Go Fund Me campaign was started by the person who was brave enough to question authority and film the road side robbery. According to the campaign:

The funds raised will be utilized to cover legal and personal loses. In addition, funds in excess are to cover other vendors who have been robbed of their hard earned living through citations and removal of their carts. It is my goal to locate Juan in Berkeley. Any and all help to support and locate him is welcome.

On Monday, the video became so viral that UC Berkeley Vice Chancellor Scott Biddy had to issue a statement, in which he justified the theft of the hot dog vendor’s money.

“While I cannot comment on the specifics of this particular case, our practice is to issue warnings before giving a citation,” Biddy said. “In a case such as this, it is typical to collect any suspected illegal funds and enter them into evidence.”

According to NBC 5, UCPD officials said that three other people were warned about vending without a permit, but the vendor in the video was the only person who was given a ticket.

Perhaps it was because he had the thickest wallet.

Whether or not the money in the man’s wallet was from selling unlicensed hot dogs remains to be answered. However, that was apparently of no importance to UC police officer Sean Aranas who found it necessary to confiscate it all.

Yes, selling food without first paying the government for permission—known as a permit—is against the law. However, this does not in any way justify this incident.

“That’s not right man, that’s not right,” Martin Flores, the man who took the video, said as he used his phone to record Aranas issuing the hot dog vendor, Beto, a ticket.

“That’s how it works,” the male officer responded. “Take it to a judge, and the judge can decide whether or not it’s right.”

The officer then

took the money out of the vendor’s wallet, and when he began to protest in Spanish, the officer told him to “Back up.”

“You’re going to take his hard-earned money?” Flores asked. The officer replied, “Yep.”

“He doesn’t have a permit,” the officer replied as he dug through Beto’s wallet to steal his cash. “Yep. This is law and order in action.”

In an interview with NBC Bay Area’s sister station Telemundo, the street vendor said he holds down a regular job in construction. He was selling hot dogs to earn a little extra money, he said.

“People saw I wasn’t doing anything wrong,” he said of the response to the video. “I wasn’t stealing or drinking. I was just working to sustain my family.”

As TFTP has reported, in the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice.

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown man sells unlicensed hot dogs on the road side. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal legality — and the video above is more than enough evidence to prove this.

How Big Pharma rips off everybody by selling low-cost pills at over 1000% mark-ups

Image: How Big Pharma rips off everybody by selling low-cost pills at over 1000% mark-ups

(Natural News)
There are lots of reasons that people despise Big Pharma, but a recent investigation has revealed yet another way that drug companies are ripping people off: by selling the exact same medications for very different prices using different packaging.

According to U.K. consumer watchdog group Which?, some branded medications are being sold for up to ten times the price of the bargain-priced versions even though the drugs are completely identical.

In other cases, companies put the same drug in different boxes and marketed them for different uses, sometimes charging different prices yet again for what is exactly the same medications. For example, the nasal spray Otrivine is sold in three different boxes labeled for sinusitis, allergies, and congestion, but all three sprays are medically identical. It might not be illegal, but it’s quite misleading.

Another tactic they uncovered was charging a high premium for mixing together two cheap treatments into a combination pill. For example, a mixture of ibuprofen and acetaminophen known as Nuromol in the U.K. is sold for ten times the price of taking the two separate pills in the same doses. In the U.S., the combination drug Treximet for migraines is sold at an average cash price of $875 for nine pills, but the two drugs it contains, sumatriptan and naproxen, can be bought for $16 for nine tablets and $12 for 300 tablets, respectively, at Walmart.

In another form of trickery, Consumer Reports says that the allergy drug Clarinex sells for $235 for the name brand and $45 for the generic version. However, its active ingredient, desloratadine, becomes loratadine once it has been metabolized by the body. This is the same drug as Claritin OTC, and you can buy a generic brand of loratadine for just $4 at Walmart.

Drug makers will sometimes introduce extended-release versions of existing drugs or simply change the way they are administered or their dosage to make it seem new and charge more for it, while also keeping cheaper generics off of the market. This is the case with the schizophrenia medicine Adasuve. The drug is simply a reformulation of the oral drug loxapine into an inhaler. It sells for an estimated monthly price of $4,550, while the capsule version of loxapine costs just $45.

Arbitrary price hikes

Sometimes, pharmaceutical companies don’t even try to trick consumers; they just raise their prices without explanation. Turing Pharmaceuticals CEO Martin Shkreli made headlines when he hiked the price of the drug Daraprim, which is used for transplant patients and in people with AIDS, from $13.50 to $750 per pill – a rise of 5,500 percent. The makers of EpiPen also got a lot of bad publicity after raising the price for a standard two-pack of the epinephrine shot that can counteract severe allergic reactions to $700; it cost just $55 in 2007 and the dosage inside one pen is believed to cost around $1 to make.

Drug companies are also opportunists, raising prices in response to crises. For example, Valeant Pharmaceuticals raised the price of their lead poisoning medication by 2,700 percent during the Flint water crisis. Meanwhile, the price of the injector for an opioid overdose antidote has risen sixfold as the opioid epidemic grips the nation.

Experts advise checking the active ingredients in medications you’re buying to see if cheaper alternatives exist. Many people are unaware that this type of behavior is occurring, and a lot of patients are not informed that other options exist. However, many people find that herbal medicine and other alternative remedies can not only address many common health problems for far cheaper than something created in a lab, but they can also often do so more effectively with fewer side effects.

Amazon has made a fortune selling counterfeit products… and today it might cause thousands to lose their eyesight

Image: Amazon has made a fortune selling counterfeit products… and today it might cause thousands to lose their eyesightImage: Amazon has made a fortune selling counterfeit products… and today it might cause thousands to lose their eyesight

(Natural News)
Every tech giant has a dirty little secret that behind its market success. In the early days of dial-up internet, for example, AOL (which stands for America On Line) earned most of its revenues from pay-by-the-hour connection fees that granted users access to adult chat rooms. Google’s success has been ensured by it functioning as a surveillance engine for the NSA; eBay is the internet’s most popular sales hub for stolen goods; and Facebook was thrust into a dominant tech position by its alliance with intelligence entities (CIA, etc.) that use Facebook to track the whereabouts and social connections among hundreds of millions of users.

So what’s Amazon.com’s dirty little secret? Counterfeit products.

Amazon has been selling counterfeit products for over a decade

Amazon.com has, for over a decade, extracted obscene profits from the sales of counterfeit products of all kinds. Dietary supplements, Birkenstock sandals, luxury watches and brand-name clothing… it’s all being counterfeited and sold by Amazon.com by the minute. The problem is so bad, in fact, that Jeff Bezos — who also owns the counterfeit news publication known as The Washington Post — has a moral (and perhaps legal) responsibility to stop the mass counterfeiting of retail brands taking place at Amazon.com. Yet he does nothing.

See, Bezos makes money whether the products are authentic or not. Counterfeit sales earn Amazon just as much as the “real” brands, but customers are getting ripped off by being sold fake products at seemingly “reasonable” prices.

Now, Amazon may have finally crossed the line. The company has been selling counterfeit eclipse viewing glasses that falsely claimed to protect viewers from the eyesight-damaging effects of direct sunlight radiation. It turns out the fake viewing glasses don’t offer the protection they claimed, and potentially thousands of people may suffer permanent eyesight damage — or even blindness — after using these counterfeit products they purchased on Amazon.com. (These counterfeit products are made in China, the same country where a baby milk manufacturer replaced powdered milk with kidney-damaging melamine to boost their profits, resulting in the widespread deaths of hundreds of infants. So don’t have any illusions about what Chinese-based manufacturers will sell you in order to make an extra buck for themselves. They’re communists, after all. They have no morals or ethics whatsoever… just like communists everywhere.)

Amazon admits it sold counterfeit eclipse viewing glasses

Now, Amazon has been forced to admit it sold people counterfeit viewing glasses that offer no protection at all.

As CBS News 2 reports:

Millions of people have purchased special glasses to safely watch the solar eclipse that’s coming up August 21, but over the weekend Amazon notified some customers that the glasses they bought may not be safe. Hucksters out there who are making counterfeits claiming they are real, but aren’t.

Coincidentally, CBS News 2 doesn’t dare point out that Amazon.com is the “huckster” selling the counterfeit products to consumers, nor do they point out that Amazon has been selling counterfeit products for years and seems to take no real action whatsoever to try to stop doing so. So who’s the real huckster here? The counterfeit manufacturer, or the online retailer that has knowingly sold — and continues to sell — counterfeit products day after day, year after year?

American Paper Optics, a manufacturer and retailer of a variety of viewing glasses, is even reporting that their own brand is being counterfeited. They’ve posted this warning page to help people know the difference between real vs. counterfeit. Their warning seems to imply that counterfeit versions of their glasses are also being sold on Amazon.com, and they’ve now posted an “Amazon Approved Vendor List.”

How many people will go blind thanks to Amazon.com selling counterfeit products?

Amazon.com is already a hub of heavy metals contaminated food and supplements, many of which are counterfeit. But at least those products didn’t make people go blind. Now, thanks to Amazon selling fake eclipse viewing glasses that don’t protect eyesight from direct sunlight radiation, the reasonable question is simply this: How many people will go blind after buying counterfeit eclipse viewing glasses on Amazon.com?

Directly viewing the sun without proper protection is extremely dangerous and can cause permanent eyesight damage in seconds. As Karl Denninger explains on Market-Ticket.org:

There will be thousands of people who will either damage or entirely lose their eyesight tomorrow and there is exactly zero that a doc in the ER or anywhere else will be able to do for you if you wind up screwing yourself by being ignorant, stupid or both.

I smell a class action lawsuit forming. And I wonder if Amazon will ever get serious about halting its ongoing sales of fake products.

If that ever happens, then maybe they can figure out how to stop the Washington Post from publishing fake news, too.

And if Amazon.com is refunding customers who purchased fake eclipse viewing glasses, shouldn’t the Washington Post refund subscribers who bought all their fake news? (Notice how the “Russians hacked the election” conspiracy hysteria has suddenly vanished, by the way? That’s because it was a total hoax to begin with, backed by nothing but innuendo and junk journalism.)

18 Years Old German Student Selling Her Virginity To The Highest Bidder

An 18-year-old girl is selling her virginity through an infamous auction website which invites potential buyers to ‘inspect’ her purity.

For some people, their first time is something saved for marriage, for others, it’s something to get over with, but this young student is going for the big bucks.

Kim, who gives only her first name, is half Austrian and half German. She is selling her virginity through the agency Cinderella Escorts so she can buy a car, a flat and finance her studies.

Bidding for the 5ft 8ins tall student starts at €100,000 (£86,640), of which 20% goes to the agency, according to local German media.

According to the Cinderella Escorts website, her virginity is proven with a doctor’s certificate and a potential buyer can also do their own tests to ‘inspect’ the girl.

On their website, Kim states she likes drinking orange juice and loves Greek food and roses.

Kim said: ‘I would like to study in Germany or Vienna. With the money I can buy a flat, pay my tuition fees and afford a car.’

The student was inspired by Aleexandra Khefren, an 18-year-old Romanian model who sold her virginity for €2.3 million (£2 million) to an unknown Hong Kong businessman.

News about Khefren and the virgin escort agency went viral across the world and also came to the attention of Kim.

She said: ‘So is it really worth more than €2.3 million to give my virginity to a man who might eventually leave me anyway?

‘To be honest, I do not believe it.’

Kim says she is willing to meet with the highest bidder anywhere in the world as long as all travels are paid for.

The man behind Germany’s most famous escort website is a 26-year-old obese man from Dortmund who still lives in his mother’s basement.

Jan Zakobielski outed himself as the man behind the multi-million pound operation which he runs from his parent’s house, both of them apparently unaware of his business.

Zakobielski said: ‘No one makes these young women do anything they don’t want to do. They have their own minds and their own opinions on sexuality.’

Chinese Selling “High Quality Refugee Boats” on Alibaba.com









 






Merchants using the famous Chinese e-commerce website “Alibaba” are advertising “high quality refugee boats” for sale to human traffickers for use in the ongoing nonwhite invasion of Europe, it has emerged.

The advertisements have emerged after the European Union took steps to restrict the sale of such boats in Libya.

The large rubber boats have become the favorite method of transport used by the invasion organizers, particularly as they now no longer actually have to cross the Mediterranean Sea, and only have to travel a few miles off the Libyan shore before their cargo is picked up by pro-invasion leftists and EU naval units for the rest of the trip to Italy.

Chinese manufacturers have stepped into the market and are now advertising inflatable dinghies as “high-quality refugee boats” on the Alibaba website.

The boats are on offer for between $800 and $1,100 per unit, and the manufacturers promise that they can provide “800 units per month for rescue boat (sic).”

According to the sellers, a company in Zhejiang, China, the boats are constructed out of plywood, aluminium and PVC, and can carry 25-30 passengers. Life-jackets are considered “optional equipment”.

It’s not the first time Alibaba has been caught out selling such boats. Another web page which has since been removed from the site advertised “inflatable rescue refugee boats” as being “not likely to sink”.

“The boat has good capacity of anti-sinking,” the advert read. “When the boat is in max loaded condition (even the boat is filled fully with water), the boat still can be float on the water.”

A leaked report from Operation Sophia, the EU’s mission to crack down on illegal people-smuggling routes across the Mediterranean, confirmed that Libya-based smugglers were buying Chinese-made inflatable boats and shipping them to North Africa via Malta and Turkey.

In one case, Maltese customs officials intercepted a shipment of 20 packaged rubber boats bound for Misrata, on the Libyan coast, but were forced to release the cargo as there were no legal grounds to hold it.

Last month, the EU took measures to restrict such sales as part of its steps to disrupt the business model of people-smugglers by imposing restrictions on the export and supply of such boats to Libya.

“The rubber boats used by the smuggler networks in the Mediterranean are fabricated somewhere in China,” Dimitris Avramopoulos, EU commissioner for migration, said on a visit to Beijing in May.

In a statement sent to MEE, a spokesperson for Avramopoulos said that he had “requested the support of the Chinese authorities to better fight against migrant-smuggling in the Mediterranean, having in mind that a certain number of rubber boats used by the smugglers are produced by firms operating in China.”

Cops Plead Guilty to Stealing and Selling Drugs, Flex Blue Privilege—Will Not Go To Jail

guiltyguilty

Fresno, CA — In a massive blow to justice and a nail in the coffin that is police accountability, two former cops who pleaded guilty to arresting people for drugs, stealing those drugs, and selling them for themselves, will not see a single day behind bars.

As the Free Thought Project reported in May, former sheriff’s deputies Logan August and Derrick Penney pleaded guilty to a massive conspiracy in which they would arrest people for selling drugs only to turn around and use those drugs to enrich themselves.

According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Eastern District of California, August and Penney conspired with a former detective to steal several pounds of cannabis from storage and sell it through a confidential informant.

According to court documents, between June 2014 and October 2014, while sworn peace officers working with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO), August and Penney abused their positions of trust and authority by conspiring with former Bakersfield Police Department detective Patrick Mara and an individual who previously worked as a confidential informant for August, and others, to steal marijuana from a KCSO storage unit and sell it for unlawful personal gain.”

August and Penney pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute marijuana, and they were facing a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. However, as yesterday’s sentencing showed, they will spend no time in jail and will pay no fines.

As Bakersfield now reports, in a candid exchange with August, Judge Lawrence O’Neill admitted he was convinced during August’s plea to go against his initial judgment.

“As a judge, I have to ask, ‘Is this person sorry more because he got caught or because of what they did?’ I’m convinced you’re sorry because of what you did,” he said. “When I entered the courtroom, I intended to say in this case that when an officer breaches the law, it is a prison case, not a probation case.”

However, that was not the case.

When those who are tasked with enforcing the law are caught breaking that law, they should be held to a higher standard than regular citizens. But, in law enforcement, it is the opposite.

“I’m just appreciative of that, because I get a second chance with my children, I get a second chance as a husband, and as a community member in Kern County,” August said.

Sadly, for the people August arrested and robbed of their marijuana, they will not get a second chance. The people August and Penney arrested and threw in a cage did not break any public trust, they were simply selling a plant to willing customers. It was Penney and August who betrayed the public, yet they are the ones walking free.

August has a history of using the power of the state to oppress others and profit from it. According to court documents, he routinely participated in “marijuana eradication operations,” only to turn around and sell the stolen plants for hefty sums.

On 10 separate occasions between March 2014 and December 2014, August wrongfully took marijuana from a law enforcement eradication operation for personal gain. August distributed to his former confidential informant the equivalent of 25 pounds of usable marijuana wrongfully taken from these law enforcement eradication operations. August received $15,000 from the sale of this marijuana.

If the common citizen was busted for conspiring to sell 25 pounds of pot, rest assured they would be rotting in a jail cell right now. In fact, TFTP has reported on countless stories of SWAT raids in which people were shot or killed that recovered only a few grams of cannabis. However, if you are on that thin blue line, rest assured, you can commit the same crimes that would land the common man in jail while never worrying about doing any time.

“Your profession, that’s gone. The pension is gone. The respect is gone,” said the judge. However, unlike all the people August and Penney busted to profit for themselves, their freedom is not gone.

Suicidal Germany may postpone selling Israel rope to hang it, citing corruption worries — Zio-Watch, July 18, 2017

WASHINGTON (JTA) — The Trump administration shares a goal with Israel of keeping Iran out of southern Syria, a spokesman said, and will continue consulting with Israel about a Syrian cease-fire that Israel’s government is vigorously opposing.

“There’s a shared interest that we have with Israel, making sure that Iran does not gain a foothold, military base-wise, in southern Syria,” Sean Spicer, the White House spokesman, said Monday at the daily briefing for reporters.

“So while we’re going to continue those talks, obviously we want to have the productive cease-fire, but we also want to make sure that we’re not — one of our other objectives obviously remains to make sure that Iran does not gain a foothold in southern Syria,” he said. “So we need to continue to have that discussion with Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu about his concerns, but I think there is a shared goal there.”

Netanyahu over the weekend said he opposed the cease-fire in southwestern Syria, near the border with the Golan Heights and brokered last week by the United States and Russia, because he fears it will give Iran a foothold in a region close to Israel.

Israel has started building its first new settlement in the West Bank in 25 years in defiance of the international law and the latest UN Security Council resolution against the illegal move.

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described the illegal construction in Emek Shilo, near the city of Ramallah, as an “honor.”

“After decades, I have the honor to be the first prime minister to build a settlement in Judea and Samaria (biblical name of the West Bank),” Netanyahu said.

“There was not, and there will never be, as good a government for the settlements as ours,” he added.

The construction of the new settlement started just a week after the Israeli minister for military affairs, Avigdor Lieberman, hailed the plan as Israel’s biggest settlement expansion since 1992.

The new settlement is aimed at accommodating the residents of the illegal West Bank outpost of Amona after it was demolished by the Israeli military in February following a court order.

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Vice President Mike Pence again pledged that the Trump administration would move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

On Monday night, Pence made the vow to Christian supporters of Israel who have become increasingly restive at President Donald Trump’s failure to make good on his campaign promise.

“To the men and women of Christians United for Israel, this president hears you,” he said to cheers at the annual Christians United for Israel  conference in Washington, D.C. “This president stands with you. And I promise you that the day will come when President Donald Trump moves the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. It is not a question of if, it is only when.”

WATCH: Woman Brutally Assaulted for Allegedly Selling Flowers With No Permit

flowersflowers

Perris, CA — In the Land of the Free, if you do not pay the State before you attempt to sell a product or service to a willing customer, you can and will be extorted, kidnapped and caged, with extreme prejudice. A video published to Facebook this week shows a Perris police officer assault a woman who was selling flowers on the side of the road — because she apparently failed to pay the State for the privilege.

The video does not tell the entire story. However, it starts as the officer is grabbing a woman who is holding multiple sets of flowers, clearly arranged for sale on the roadside. So, based on the multiple instances previously covered by the Free Thought Project, we can assume that she was approached for the selling of flowers without a permit, especially considering the officers are not from ICE.

As the video begins, the motorcycle officer is grabbing the woman by the arm. The woman, who apparently doesn’t speak English, is clearly terrified.

Not wanting to be assaulted or otherwise extorted by the Perris police department, the woman pulled her arm back and tried to move away. She was still holding onto her flowers, indicating that she was in no way a threat to the officer.

However, as the woman attempted to move backward, away from the officer, he grabbed her by her hair and attacked her.

Within seconds, the officer had tripped the woman — who was still trying to protect her flowers as they likely cost her much needed money — and was on top of her.

The video is appalling as the cop kneels down on the woman and shoves his gloved hand over her mouth. The woman begins yelling out in Spanish as another cop joins in on the arrest — allegedly over flowers.

As the officers roll her over to place the handcuffs on her, we can see just how terrified the woman is, as she urinated on herself.

The Free Thought Project reached out to the Perry Police Department to ask them for a statement about this video. However, we have yet to hear back from them.

Some of the comments on the video below, are almost as disheartening as the video itself. Multiple people attempted to justify this assault and battery by claiming the woman should’ve had a permit.

Facebook user Chuck N. wrote:

taxes, it;s called getting a permit, pay taxes, oh and dont resist when officer gives you a ticket. Is that person even in the country legally?

Another FB user, Eady T, wrote:

Selling flowers without a vendor’s license is a crime. Petty but crime non the less. So is resisting arrest. 

Sadly, Americans are being conditioned to think that in the land of the free, people are somehow morally wrong if they try to make a dollar without first being extorted by the state.

The bottom line is — in modern day police state, USA — exchanging goods and services is a crime unless the State gets their cut. We are told that this is for our safety and that we could all die if a brown woman sells flowers on the corner. But nothing could be further from the truth.

Morality does not equal reality — and the video below is more than enough evidence to prove this.

Here is the link to the Perris police department’s Facebook page, if you’d like to leave them a scathing but peaceful review.

Sadly, this is one of many incidents in which people trying to earn a few bucks have been attacked or otherwise kidnapped by police ‘protecting society.’

In May, the Alameda County Sheriff’s department posted a photo of a deputy arresting a man for selling fruits and vegetables on the roadside and attempted to justify the arrest. When people read the department’s justification, they lashed out — peacefully — to let them know what they were doing is wrong.

In June, a 38-year-old homeless man was attempting to earn some honest money by providing a much-desired service to the residents of Kennewick, Washington when he was threatened with extortion and arrest by the local police department, which effectively ended his enterprise. After the Kennewick Police Department threatened the homeless man and prevented him from making a living, they took to Facebook to shamelessly brag about it.
