Man handcuffed for eating a sandwich in nanny Cali

10

KGO-TV in the Bay Area reported last month that 31-year-old Steve Foster was handcuffed and detained Monday at a train station at the Pleasant Hill station in Walnut Creek, California, for…wait for it..eating.

Apparently, it’s illegal to eat at the open-air station in nanny California. Mind you, this is the place with a poop map that allows vagrants to poop in the streets, in stores, wherever they please.

An officer identified as D. McCormick actually handcuffed Mr. Foster for eating a sandwich. There weren’t any signs posted indicating he could not eat on the platform.

Then the officer claimed he was resisting arrests when Mr. Foster told Officer McCormick to let go of his backpack.

“You singled me out, out of all these people,” the disbelieving Mr. Foster said to McCormick.

“You’re eating. It’s against the law,” the officer replied.

”So what?” Foster responded.

KPIX reported Officer McCormick went to the platform to look for a woman who was reportedly drunk when he noticed Foster eating on the platform.

California’s law punishes people for eating on train platforms with a $250 fine or 48 hours of community service, according to the Washington Examiner.

Why don’t they get after the drug addicts leaving needles on the trains or the vagrants pooping?

The nanny officer in the nanny Bay area held Foster while another handcuffed him as his girlfriend, Nicole Hernandez videotaped the entire mess.

“It’s a violation of California law. I have the right to detain you,” McCormick said, “You’re going to jail.”

“For eating a f—ing sandwich?” Foster replied.

“It would have been simpler if he would have come up to me and said hey, you can’t eat on BART nor on the platform. I should have been informed because I didn’t know I couldn’t eat on the platform,” Foster told KGO.

A statement from BART, however, says the officer did warn him, which Foster denies.

Think about it. They are making a criminal out of a man for eating a sandwich when he didn’t know it was against the law while they allow pooping and stealing in the nanny state.

If you want to live like this, keep voting for Democrats.

  1. Let me see if I can understand Liberal California thinking, it is acceptable to urinate and defecate in the public streets also to shoot up heroin in a BART subway station but it is a crime to eat a sandwich in an open-air train station. Who can argue with this “logic”?

    • Well with all the “legal” faeces defiling the entire place it would be extremely dangerous to “eat” in the open…maybe even to purchase edibles as defecating in super markets appear to be the new “in thing”…

  2. This is what is meant about everyone will violate some law each and every day.

    It’s this kind of enforcement that occurs in urban communities such as Ferguson. It’s basically a method of taxing the poor who have little recourse but to ‘pay up’. So when the opportunity arises that will nationalize their plight it is taken to the extreme. Oftentimes police departments have been taken from protecting the public to money collectors for the state. In order to compensate for losses the person has the easy and lucrative alternative of selling drugs. We know full well what this escalates into. So when a person who has a low-paying job and is cited for jaywalking ends up ordered to pay hundreds of dollars in fines, we can understand his situation. As the story headlines; “more protests expected”.

  3. BART General Manager Bob Powers’ full statement about the incident doesn’t quite add up. He says the man was warned as the officer walked by and Then After dealing with a different call he came back and found the man to still be eating. At the very beginning we can see the man had maybe taken two bites. When police departments fabricate the facts it certainly doesn’t help.

  4. California is receiving the government they elected and pay for. I wonder if this guy agrees? I doubt it. Got to pay for those illegals already there and flooding in daily to the sanctuary state.

  5. This is what happens when your city, county & state officials cater to the far-left crazies all sense of proportion are thrown out the window. To all you California voters who continually vote Democrat, to you I say welcome to a hell of your own creation, my hope for you is that you step in human feces daily to remind you what a complete bell end that you are.

    • Rubin, citizen votes in California mean nothing. The state has been controlled by a crime syndicate consisting of roughly four mafia families for many decades. They and their minions rig the elections and are wholly responsible for the deterioration and degradation of the State.

  6. For your information, I extracted this from a document titled “The Greatest Hoax.”

    It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers. Sapp v. Tallahasee, 348 So. 2nd. 363, Reiff v. City of Philadelphia, 477 F.Supp. 1262, Lynch v. N.C. Dept of Justive 376 S.E. 2nd. 247. ,
