These videos have lead to a online petition by Martin Flores (who filmed the videos) to raise money for the vendor

As of this posting, close to $34,000 has been raised.

Here is what Flores posted about the incident:

This is the official go fund me account for justice4Juan the hotdog vendor at UC Berkeley. 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 Saturday, September 9, 2017 I took my children to enjoy a Cal Beekeley football game. We had a great time. After the game I promised them that I would support the hotdog vendors by buying food from them. I captured this video as we were interrupted by UC Berkeley Police officer. Thank you for your compassion to support this effort.

We thought California wasn’t a state that allowed for civil forfeiture of assets, ever since it became law in 2016.
