Violence, Crime & Protests

Violence Surges in America
There Have Been, On Average, 10 Mass Shootings In U.S. Each Week This Year
When a man walked into a birthday party in Colorado Springs, Colo., over the weekend, killing six people and then himself, it was the deadliest mass shooting in the state since March, when a rampage at a grocery store left 10 people dead.

We're just 18 weeks into 2021, and already the U.S. has experienced 194 mass shootings. That averages out to about 10 a week.

The tally comes from the Gun Violence Archive, which defines a mass shooting as an incident in which four or more people are shot or killed, excluding the shooter. The full list can be found here.

While a rise in gun sales and divergence of some public health funding could be linked to the spike in gun violence in recent months, experts say it can be a challenge to isolate any single cause. And advocates against gun violence lament the limited legislative response from Washington so far. npr.org

MUST READ: Retail LP Is Now On the Clock
Atlanta, GA: Gov. Kemp signs new Citizen's Arrest legislation for Georgia

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp today signed into law the state's new citizen's arrest legislation, a measure prompted by the killing of Ahmaud Arbery.

Kemp signed the bill shortly after 2 p.m. today at the Georgia Capitol. Lawmakers first brought up the bill last summer, about four months after the fatal shooting of Arbery in Glynn County. After the Senate voted on it in March, the measure went back to the House with some changes.

"Today, I was proud to sign H.B. 479 to overhaul Georgia's citizen's arrest statute, while also protecting every Georgian's sacred right to defend their person and property," Kemp said. "After the tragic killing of Ahmaud Arbery, we knew that action was needed to ensure an antiquated, Civil-War era statute could not be used to justify rogue vigilantism in the Peach State."

The measure repeals a law from 1863 that allows ordinary citizens to make arrests if they knew a crime was being committed. Deadly force cannot be used under the new measure unless you are protecting yourself, your home or prevent a forcible felony like murder, robbery or kidnapping. However, licensed security guards, private detectives and weight inspectors would still be able to detain people. Store or restaurant employees can hold wrongdoers for stealing or without paying for a meal.

Any of these people can only hold someone for an hour.

If law enforcement does not show up, the detained person must be let go with all of their belongings. The new measure came about after the old citizen's arrest law was cited as justification for the three suspects in the Arbery killing to chase him down and detain him. They claim they thought he was a burglar. wtvy.com

Stores Boarding Up & Leaving Portland Amid Nonstop Violence & Looting
From 'wonderful' to 'war zone': Portland's reputation transformation

Violent protests and an increasing number of houseless people are pushing Portland to its limits amid the pandemic

Everywhere you look, the City of Roses has become the city of trash and filth.

Portland may be slowly emerging from the pandemic but the downtown district is fenced off, boarded up and dying. The city's homeless problem has worsened. Violent protests have damaged the heart of the city and continue to destroy its reputation. And the mayor and other leaders seem overwhelmed, ineffective and ill-equipped to stop it.

In the past year, peaceful protests have been hijacked by violence, city landmarks have been defaced and torn down and uncontrolled vandalism has forced the closure of businesses.

Alex Hofberg had spent 30 years building his business, Watchworks, in downtown Portland. He invested and believed in the city. But his business was recently robbed and the looters got away with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise.

Hofberg and his wife rushed to the store. Police officers were nearby, dealing with what Alex said appeared to be intruders at a Target. Hofberg's wife decided to ask the officers for help.

After wading through broken glass and smashed jewelry cases, Hofberg learned that at least $400,000 in watches and other items were gone - along with his faith in Portland and what it stands for. The couple boarded up the shop and left downtown along with many other businesses.

Cameron's Books & Magazines had survived 80 years in downtown Portland despite financial struggles, then the pandemic. But it was the nightly violent protests that pushed things over the edge.

"Much of the civil unrest starts and ends here," said owner Crystal Zingsheim. "Everyone sees the bookstore as the backdrop of Murderville USA and pretty much we're just left to keep peace on our own." koin.com

Data proves it: Pandemic is no excuse for NYC's rising tide of violent crime
This is 1980s-level crime, and the city is getting used to it with alarming alacrity. Mayor Bill de Blasio's answer to this is that there's not much we can do. "Our entire lives were turned upside down, a global pandemic, a perfect storm," he says.

So he hasn't acted with much urgency as the murder rate rose 47 percent last year, to a total of 468 people killed, and has risen this year, so far, by 17 percent.

The mayor subscribes to the same theory Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez espoused last summer: "Do you think this has to do with the fact that there is record unemployment ... right now?"

In a global pandemic, though, it's fair to ask: How is the rest of the world doing?

In London, the global city that most closely resembles Gotham, the murder rate plummeted last year. It fell to 126 from 150, down 16 percent.

Why? Well, that's obvious: It was the global pandemic. "Many, many crime types have reduced as you would expect," said Met Police chief Cressida Dick, noting that fewer people were outside to fight with each other.

DOJ Recognizes National Police Week
Attorney General Merrick B. Garland Honors Nation's Law Enforcement During National Police Week
In honor of National Police Week, Attorney General Merrick B. Garland recognizes the service and sacrifice of federal, state, local, and Tribal law enforcement. This year, the week is observed Sunday, May 9 through Saturday, May 15, 2021.

"This week is a time to honor our law enforcement officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation," said Attorney General Garland. "I am constantly inspired by the extraordinary courage and dedication with which members of law enforcement act each day, putting their lives on the line to make our communities safer. To members of law enforcement and your families: we know that not a single day, nor a single week, is enough to recognize your service and sacrifice. On behalf of the entire Department of Justice, you have our unwavering support and eternal gratitude."

In 1962, President Kennedy issued the first proclamation for Peace Officers Memorial Day and National Police Week to remember and honor law enforcement officers for their service and sacrifices. Peace Officers Memorial Day, which every year falls on May 15, specifically honors law enforcement officers killed or disabled in the line of duty.

Each year, during National Police Week, our nation celebrates the contributions of law enforcement from around the country, recognizing their hard work, dedication, loyalty, and commitment to keeping our communities safe. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted law enforcement officers' courage and unwavering devotion to the communities that they have sworn to serve. justice.gov

Breonna Taylor Investigation Criticizes Officers for Firing Weapons
Officers who killed Breonna Taylor should not have fired their weapons, internal investigator finds
Two Louisville police officers whose shots struck and killed Breonna Taylor never should have fired their weapons, a department investigator found - a conclusion that the force's upper brass partly rejected.

Although the officers had a right to protect themselves when Taylor's boyfriend fired at them, the "circumstances made it unsafe to take a single shot" in response, Sgt. Andrew Meyer wrote in a Dec. 4 memo summarizing his investigation.

Taylor and her boyfriend, Kenneth Walker, were in darkness at the far end of her apartment's hallway when the officers broke down the door. Both were wearing all black. Walker moved quickly to hide from the bullets, while Taylor froze in place.

All of that happened within seconds, Meyer wrote, while the officers "experienced fear, tunnel vision, and adrenaline." "This," Meyer concluded, "is how the wrong person was shot and killed." washingtonpost.com

Sign of Easing Tensions One Year Later?

Lafayette Square, across from White House, reopens almost 1 year after protests

Park across from White House was the site of protests after George Floyd's death.

Lafayette Square, a park across from the White House in Washington, D.C., reopened to the public Monday, nearly a year after federal authorities fenced off the area during protests about policing following the killing of George Floyd.

The square, which offers perhaps the best view of the White House to the public, was closed after U.S. Park Police officers last June forcefully scattered protesters who had gathered near the White House.

The protesters were ejected from the square shortly before then-President Donald Trump walked across the park to stand near St. John's Church to pose before cameras holding a Bible. The church had been damaged the night before Trump's photo op, when a fire was set in the basement of the building during protests.

Fencing still surrounds the square named after the American Revolutionary War hero, but entryways on the northern side of the park were opened to the public Monday morning.

The U.S. Secret Service did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the park, but officers near the park confirmed that it had been opened to the public. washingtonpost.com

Policing the Police on Social Media
'They Hate Me': New Jersey Cop Terminated for Post Calling BLM Protesters 'Terrorists,' Another Demoted for Liking
Two New Jersey officers are facing steep punishments for a social media post that likened Black Lives Matter protesters to terrorists.

Speaking on "Fox & Friends First," former Officer Sara Erwin said she was terminated following an investigation by the Mercer County Prosecutor's Office - which determined no criminal behavior took place - leaving the department to issue its own punishment.

Her sergeant, Mandy Grey, was demoted and suspended for liking the post shared in June 2020 that stated: "Last night as I left for work I had my two kids crying for me not to go to work. I don't think I've ever felt the way I did last night. And then I watched people I know and others I care about going into harms way. I love my police family like my own. So when you share posts and things on Facebook I'd really appreciate if you'd THINK before doing so. I've seen so many black lives matter [sic] hashtags in these posts. Just to let you know - they are terrorists. They hate me. They hate my uniform. They don't care if I die."

Erwin deleted the post after it sparked controversy. atlantablackstar.com

Pharmacies Across the Country are Ready
Americans as young 12 could get the Covid-19 vaccine this week. Some experts think it could turn the pandemic around
Pediatricians and pharmacies across the US are ready to administer Covid-19 vaccines for 12- to 15-year-olds, a development the US Food and Drug Administration predicts could begin in some places Tuesday -- and may begin more broadly Thursday.

In what President Joe Biden called a "promising development," the FDA expanded the emergency use authorization (EUA) Monday for the Pfizer vaccine to be given to adolescents as young as 12. The agency also set a meeting for next month for vaccine advisors to discuss authorizing vaccines for younger children.

Vaccinating younger teens not only means a greater shot at ending the pandemic long term, but also means they can safely get back to the birthday parties and sleepovers they had in pre-pandemic life, CNN Medical Analyst Dr. Leana Wen said. cnn.com

Post-Pandemic Retail Trends
NPD: Three critical trends affecting retailers in coming months are...

New policies regarding the return to work, reopening of schools for in-person learning and the resurgence of travel will have enormous implications for the retail industry.

In a recent presentation to the Retail Industry Leaders Association, NPD chief retail strategist Don Unser outlined three of the most critical trends affecting retailers in the coming months. They are listed below.

1. Millions of new remote and hybrid-remote workers: Compared to 2019, there could be as many as 28 million new workers working from home in the United States this year. Unser estimates that 20% to 35% of the workforce will still work part-time or full-time at home when pandemic rules are lifted, which will have the greatest effect on consumer spending for technology, apparel, footwear, automotive and foodservice.

2. Kids returning to the classroom led to an early back-to-school bump: As more school districts headed back to the classroom, spending on traditional back-to-school items increased by tens of millions of dollars, which is very unusual for this time of year. In early March unit sales of kids' backpacks, apparel, and performance and leisure footwear surpassed 2019 levels.

3. Experience spending will shift some discretionary spending: While the trendline for foodservice and other experience-based categories was still down in the first two months of 2021 compared to the pre-pandemic period, it is now headed toward a slow recovery as more states' economies reopen. Unser expects spending on experiences will come back strong. chainstoreage.com

Safety Still Top of Mind as Retailers Bounce Back from Pandemic
Retailers optimistic about strong recovery in 2021
Sixty-percent of commercial real estate leaders and 55% of retailers expect a return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of the year - a testament to the resilience of consumers and a strong desire to safely visit brick-and-mortar retail, according to a new ICSC survey of retailers and CRE companies.

With safety top of mind, stores plan to sustain the changes made during the height of the pandemic for the foreseeable future. Nearly 80% of small CRE firms are likely to continue using plexiglass barriers to protect employees and shoppers during the next 12 months, and 76% reported a plan to continue shortened hours - compared to just 53% of larger firms. Large CRE firms have prioritized increased sanitation (76%) over other restrictions, while independent retailers (58%) are prioritizing crowd management.

The pandemic propelled retailers and retail real estate through years' worth of transformation in a matter of months, and leaders expect a wave of innovation - in both offerings and store formats - to continue as the "store of the future" becomes a reality, according to ICSC. chainstoreage.com

White House & McDonald's Team Up to Promote COVID Vaccine
McDonald's is partnering with the White House to promote the COVID-19 vaccine on McCafé coffee cups
The fast-food giant is partnering with the White House to promote the "We Can Do This" vaccine campaign, an initiative set up by the Biden administration to educate people about the COVID-19 vaccine, and to encourage people to get a shot.

From July, McDonald's McCafé cups will be branded with this slogan, along with details of where customers can get more information about the vaccine.

"We all want to protect ourselves and our loved ones and be together with our communities again," Genna Gent, McDonald's vice president for global public policy and government relations, said in a statement Tuesday.

McDonald's wide reach should help the government's campaign reach more people. The chain has nearly 14,000 locations across the US. businessinsider.com

Retail Apocalypse? Not So Fast.

Back to the Post Pandemic Bright Future of Physical Retail Stores

By Tony D'Onofrio, Global Retail Influencer & Prosegur's CEO & Managing Director, Global Retail Business Unit

Despite the coronavirus pandemic's impact on how we work, shop, and entertain ourselves, the retail industry has managed to adapt in the face of these challenges. Although e-commerce has played a bigger role in retail sales than before the pandemic, the "retail apocalypse" has been largely overstated. In fact, with brick-and-mortar sales generating over $18.5 trillion in the United States in 2020, I anticipate that the physical store will continue to act as the epicenter of the post-COVID-19 retail experience.

The Retail Store in 2021 and Beyond

For nearly a decade, e-commerce has been seen as a threat to traditional retailers, positioning online retailers as more capable of meeting growing consumer expectations for convenience and affordability. But the retail industry is nothing if not resilient. Faced with reduced in-store shopping due to widespread social distancing and stay-at-home orders, retailers turned to newer solutions like curbside pickup and buy-online-pickup-in-store (BOPIS).

One-third of retailers also reported investing in solutions to facilitate in-store pickup and returns for online purchases, offering customers the speed of brick-and-mortar retail with the convenience of online shopping.

COVID-19 has become a brutal accelerator of digital transformation trends that were already underway. The physical store will remain a critical component to the retail success mix, but its level of digital connectivity to the consumer needs to dramatically increase.  Read more here

Labor Shortage Impacting Security Industry
Security Companies Join Other Businesses Offering Sign-On Bonuses
Jobs are abundant across the country, but workers, have become hard to find. In the service industry, the category of workers that include everyone from taxi drivers to store sales clerks and security officers, the competition for recruiting helpers has become ferocious.

Multiple types of businesses who do not normally offer sign-on bonuses, now do and that includes the private security industry. Among the larger security companies that have had to make such offers is Securitas, AlliedUniversal and the GEO Group.

Local and regional companies such as GuardSmart, ArchAngel and Protection One are all currently offering between $500 and $1000 for all new hires. Allied Universal is offering as much as a $900 hiring bonus for people who will work as security staff at Santa Fe Public Schools.

One recent newcomer security company is willing to pay a $2000 bonus for anyone hired but they must stay with the company for at least 180 days to receive that bonus.

At least two states have canceled unemployment benefits to help stimulate the state's economy. With workers, companies cannot meet the demands for their services, products or expand their business.

Montana and South Carolina are the only two states to fully opt out of the federal unemployment benefit programs enacted in the pandemic and currently extended by the American Rescue Plan signed into law in March but other states may soon join the list as the demand for workers continues to skyrocket as more states begin to open up and business is back to normal. privateofficerbreakingnews.blogspot.com

Retail & Restaurants Impacted by Labor Shortage
Millions Are Unemployed. Why Can't Companies Find Workers?

Among the reasons potential workers are holding back: fear of getting Covid, lack of child care and enhanced unemployment benefits

Employers in sectors like manufacturing, restaurants and construction are struggling to find workers. There are more job openings in the U.S. this spring than before the pandemic hit in March 2020, and fewer people in the labor force, according to the Labor Department and private recruiting sites.

Surveys suggest why some can't or won't go back to work. Millions of adults say they aren't working for fear of getting or spreading Covid-19. Businesses are reopening ahead of schools, leaving some parents without child care. Many people are receiving more in unemployment benefits than they would earn in the available jobs. Some who are out of work don't have the skills needed for jobs that are available or are unwilling to switch to a new career.

Still, the shortage threatens to restrain what is otherwise shaping up to be a robust post-pandemic economic recovery. Some businesses are forgoing work, such as not bidding on a project, delivering parts more slowly or keeping a section of the restaurant closed. That reduces the pace of the economy's expansion. Other companies are raising wages to attract employees, which could inflate prices for customers or reduce profit margins for owners. wsj.com

NGA Applauds Federal Reserve's Proposed Changes to Protect Merchant Routing on Card-Not-Present Debit Transactions
The National Grocers Association (NGA), the trade association representing the independent supermarket industry, applauds the Federal Reserve's proposed changes to its requirements on debit card issuers to better protect merchants' ability to route card-not-present (CNP) debit transactions.

The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve today announced proposed changes to the agency's Regulation II rules to clarify that debit card issuers must enable at least two unaffiliated networks. Since the implementation of Regulation II following the passage of the Durbin Amendment in 2010's Dodd-Frank Act, many merchants have cited their inability to route online and other CNP debit transactions over a network of their choice. Today's notice of the proposed changes allows for public comment. NGA intends to provide comments in support of the rule.

"Today's announcement from the Fed is a win for our members, but there's still work to be done," said Robert Yeakel, NGA's director of government relations. "We have been raising this routing problem to the agency for years. However, the Fed's announcement today is unfortunately mum on the larger debit issue at hand: the need for the agency to update and decrease the debit fee rate. As a result, merchants continue to pay debit swipe fees that are significantly higher than the costs that issuers incur to actually process a debit transaction."

National Trend - Big Support for 'Second Chance'
HR More Accepting of Workers with Criminal Records
But too many companies still just 'talking the talk,' expert says

New research from the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the SHRM Foundation and the Charles Koch Institute shows that a majority of HR professionals and business leaders are willing to hire and work with people with criminal records.

People with criminal records-especially those who were incarcerated-face significant barriers to employment. Based on surveys of over 3,400 HR professionals, managers, executives and individual contributors conducted in February and March, the new research found that most believe people with criminal records perform the same as or better than other hires in terms of job performance, dependability, retention and overall quality of hire.

Specifically, 85 percent of HR professionals and 81 percent of business leaders believe workers with criminal records perform just as well or better in their jobs compared to workers without criminal records, and 81 percent of HR professionals say the quality of hire for those with criminal records is about the same or better-an increase of 14 percentage points from 2018, the last time the survey was taken.

SHRM and Stand Together are founding partners of the Second Chance Business Coalition, a cross-sector group of large employers committed to expanding hiring and advancement practices within their companies for people with criminal records. shrm.org

Macy's reveals Herald Square revitalization plan
The project involves a $235 million private investment in the neighborhood surrounding the store, including Herald Square's infrastructure, with upgraded subway access and improved transit connections. The company will also build a commercial office tower above the store.

Macy's forecast that the plan will generate $269 million in yearly city tax revenues, support 16,290 jobs and deliver over $4 billion in economic output annually. The Herald Square location will be open throughout the project's development.

The Herald Square store has been open since 1902, growing to a million square feet of retail space with a 1924 expansion along 34th Street and even further in 1931 when it annexed a Seventh Avenue building. Now Macy's is doubling down on its presence in New York City. retaildive.com

C-Store Touchless Checkout Increasingly Popular

Cybercriminal 'Bulletproof Hosting' Conspiracy
Detroit, MI: Four Individuals Plead Guilty to RICO Conspiracy Involving "Bulletproof Hosting" for Cybercriminals
Four Eastern European nationals have pleaded guilty to conspiring to engage in a Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) arising from their providing "bulletproof hosting" services between 2008 and 2015, which were used by cybercriminals to distribute malware and attack financial institutions and victims throughout the United States.

According to court documents, Aleksandr Grichishkin, 34, and Andrei Skvortsov, 34, of Russia; Aleksandr Skorodumov, 33, of Lithuania; and Pavel Stassi, 30, of Estonia, were founders and/or members of a bulletproof hosting organization.

The group rented Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, servers, and domains to cybercriminal clients, who used this technical infrastructure to disseminate malware used to gain access to victims' computers, form botnets, and steal banking credentials for use in frauds. Malware hosted by the organization included Zeus, SpyEye, Citadel, and the Blackhole Exploit Kit, which rampantly attacked U.S. companies and financial institutions between 2009 and 2015 and caused or attempted to cause millions of dollars in losses to U.S. victims.

A key service provided by the defendants was helping their clients to evade detection by law enforcement and continue their crimes uninterrupted; the defendants did so by monitoring sites used to blocklist technical infrastructure used for crime, moving "flagged" content to new infrastructure, and registering all such infrastructure under false or stolen identities. justice.gov

Major US pipeline operator Colonial Pipeline is investigating and responding to a ransomware attack on its IT network that ultimately disrupted its pipeline operations late last week, putting a spotlight on how the industrial sector remains vulnerable to growing cyberattacks that could have far-reaching consequences.

The company's pipeline system runs 5,500 miles between Houston, Texas, and northern New Jersey, transporting millions of gallons of fuel each day. On May 7, Colonial Pipeline learned it was the victim of a cyberattack later determined to be ransomware. The FBI has since confirmed the Darkside ransomware group is responsible, though the investigation is ongoing.
Learning of the attack prompted Colonial to take certain systems offline, temporarily halting all pipeline operations and affecting some of its IT systems. By May 9, its mainlines were still offline but some smaller lateral lines between terminals and delivery points were operational. A new update published to Colonial's website today says its operations team has launched a plan involving an "incremental process" that will enable the company to fully restore its service.

The attack, which reportedly involved the theft of nearly 100GB of Colonial's data, prompted the US government to issue an emergency waiver that allows for greater flexibility and faster transportation of oil and fuel to the states where fuel supply may be disrupted by the attack.

Ransomware is an increasingly common threat with potential to cause widespread damage as it hits industrial environments - and this is the prime example. While ransomware was confined to Colonial's IT network, its industrial operations were forced to shut down as a direct result.

"Almost every industrial organization relies on IT systems for a huge range of operational requirements, from billing to pricing to supply chain management," says John Livingston, CEO of Verve Industrial. "The line of demarcation isn't at some physical point ... when we think of protecting 'operations' we need to consider the systems that if compromised, would impact operations." darkreading.com

Security Patch Updates
This one change could protect your systems from attack. So why don't more companies do it?

One 'boring but really important' change could improve your security posture significantly. But not everyone does it.

If there's one thing an organisation should do to protect its network from cyber attacks, it's turn on automatic updates for security patches so cyber criminals and other malicious hackers can't exploit vulnerabilities which have already been fixed.

The advice comes from the UK's National Cyber Security Centre - the cyber arm of GCHQ - which recommends applying security patches as soon as they're available as one of the simplest things an organisation can do to prevent intruders entering their networks.

"Patching is now so much easier and so much less risky than it was when we first started doing this stuff. If there's one thing that anyone out there wants to take away, turn on automatic updates, please - even if you're an enterprise, turn on automatic updates," said Dr Ian Levy, technical director of the NCSC, speaking at the cybersecurity agency's CYBERUK 2021 virtual event.

"The sort of things we've seen over the last six to nine months like the big vulnerabilities and the big incidents, a lot of them come down to people not patching properly. And I know it's really boring but it is really important". zdnet.com

Defending against Windows RDP attacks
In 2020, attacks against Windows Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) grew by 768%, according to ESET. But this shouldn't come as a surprise, given the massive increase in people working remotely during the pandemic.

With enterprises resorting to making RDP services publicly available, hackers have taken notice. Some DDoS attacks are leveraging RDP servers to amplify their effect, and malware like Trickbot is employing scanners to identify vulnerable open RDP ports.

When it comes to remote access, RDP is functionally rich and very useful. It's not inherently dangerous, but given its complexity, ubiquity, and position within the operating system, RDP has a large attack surface. If publicly exposed, vulnerabilities that emerge may be exploitable by hackers to cause serious damage to an enterprise.

RDP needs to be well protected, and direct access should never be provided to an RDP server. Instead, access should be guarded behind a separate service with limited privileges to prevent malicious actors from gaining admin-level access. helpnetsecurity.com

Amazon's Battle Against Counterfeits
Amazon Publishes Comprehensive Brand Protection Report Demonstrating Progress Toward Driving Counterfeits to Zero

Only 6% of attempted seller account registrations passed Amazon's robust verification processes and listed products for sale

Amazon seized more than 2M counterfeit products before being sent to a customer and destroyed them so they were not resold elsewhere in the retail supply chain

Amazon released its 2020 Brand Protection Report which provides a comprehensive view of how it ensures customers shop from authentic products in its stores. Amazon makes significant investments in dedicated teams and industry-leading machine learning technology to proactively protect customers, brands and its selling partners from counterfeiters, and to hold them accountable if they attempt to sell fakes through Amazon. In 2020, Amazon invested more than $700 million and employed more than 10,000 people to protect its stores from fraud and abuse.

Highlights from the 2020 Brand Protection Report show Amazon's significant innovation and worldwide progress in combatting counterfeits and protecting customers and brands, including:

Amazon invested more than $700 million to protect its stores from fraud and abuse.

● Amazon employed more than 10,000 people to protect its store from fraud and abuse.

Amazon's verification processes prevented over 6 million attempts to create selling accounts, stopping bad actors before they published a single product for sale.

Only 6% of attempted account registrations passed Amazon's robust verifications processes and listed products for sale.

Amazon seized more than 2 million products that were sent to its fulfillment centers and that it detected as counterfeit before being sent to a customer. Amazon destroyed those products to prevent them from being resold elsewhere in the supply chain.

The Rise of Social E-Commerce
Brands discover new benefits of partnering with e-commerce sites
Brand marketing is more fluid than ever and can now be optimized across the purchase funnel, especially with the rise of social commerce. For this reason, it's important that brand marketers begin to pay attention to e-commerce sites-and not only in terms of display inventory.

Here are four reasons why:

1. E-commerce partners have transaction data, so they can provide more accurate campaign measurement and attribution reporting.

2. They can more precisely target your customers.

3. Meeting the shopper close to the point of purchase means less friction and a better likelihood that they'll try your product or brand.

4. Brand marketing triggers multiplicative discourse on social commerce platforms.

For these reasons (and probably a few others), it's important that marketers begin considering e-commerce sites as viable brand media partners. adage.com

Grand Rapids, MI: Walmart losses exceed $250,000 in Michigan-based scam touching 35 states
Seven people have been charged in a far-reaching scam involving fraudulent returns of vacuums, headphones and other products at Walmart stores, hitting the retail giant with more than $250,000 in losses. The Michigan-based conspiracy is accused of thefts and fraudulent returns in 35 states. Smaller cities were targeted; places like Ammon, Idaho, Locust, N.C. and Gun Barrel, Texas.

Seven individuals are named in a 33-page indictment recently filed in Grand Rapids federal court. Six of the defendants are from Benton Harbor and one is from Jackson. Charges include wire fraud, a 20-year felony, and possession of stolen goods after interstate transport, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. The operation is believed to have gotten underway in January of 2019 and continued through April of 2021, court records show.

Here's how it worked: Participants stole large quantities of high-value electronic goods, including electronic vacuum cleaners, electronic routers, Beats headphones and Apple products. Others made legitimate cash purchases of those same items, "thereby obtaining 'legitimate' Walmart receipts,'' according to the indictment. They then switched out the purchased goods for matching, previously stolen goods, and returned them for cash refunds, investigators say.

"After a return was processed, the Walmart employee gave back to the co-conspirators the 'legitimate' Walmart receipt,'' according to the indictment. The transaction code on the bottom of the 'legitimate' receipts would be marked or torn so they were no longer readable by Walmart registers. Altered receipts would then be used to return stolen or purchased items to other Walmart stores. "As part of this scheme...co-conspirators have collectively been involved in over 80 thefts or attempted thefts and 150 fraudulent returns or attempted fraudulent returns, at Walmart stores in more than 35 states throughout the country,'' according to the indictment. wzzm13.com

Warren, MI: Police task force crack down on illegal drugs, other crimes
Police Commissioner William Dwyer, Mayor Jim Fouts and other officers said the Operation Police Enforcement and Community Engagement (PEACE) resulted in dozens of arrests and seizures of close to $2 million in cash, firearms and narcotics. The five-day task force operation, which took place May 3-7 resulted in 39 arrests on 67 felony and 22 misdemeanor charges, and the execution of 18 search warrants across the Macomb County suburb and several other cities. Suspects resided in Warren, Center Line, Detroit, Eastpointe, Hazel Park, St. Clair Shores and Sterling Heights. Eleven vehicles were seized, along with six ounces of fentanyl, three ounces of cocaine and two ounces of heroin. In April, the Criminal Investigations Division and Special Operations Unit opened an investigation of a serial armed robbery suspect committing numerous armed robberies in and around Warren. Officers identified a 32-year-old suspect and initiated surveillance. Police arrested him in Warren after he committed a felony larceny in a stolen vehicle. A search warrant was executed at his Detroit residence and officers recovered evidence that ties him to numerous crimes in Macomb County, including armed robbery. He faces charges of organized retail crime, a 5-year felony and receiving a stolen car, also a five-year felony. macombdaily.com

Shootings & Deaths

Phoenix, AZ: Security guard accused of shooting a man in the back, killing him
A security guard is accused of shooting and killing a man in Phoenix early Sunday morning, then lying to police about what happened. The shooting happened just after 1:30 a.m. near 27th Avenue and Bethany Home Road at Club Silverado. When officers arrived, they found a man who had been shot. The man, identified as 29-year-old Ruben Sekiseka, died at the scene. Investigators say 34-year old Serafin Chavez was working as an armed security guard and had been escorting Sekisaka out after breaking up an alleged bar fight. According to court paperwork, Chavez first told investigators that Sekiska shot himself while trying to run away and tripped.

But during the investigation, detectives learned that Chavez had allegedly shot Sekisaka. Another security guard was outside helping escort other people out of the bar and told police that he saw Sekiseka holding a gun and pointing it at people near the bar. The guard said he and Chavez both pulled out their guns, and afterward, Sekisaka put the gun away into his waistband and began to walk away.

According to the security guard, Chavez pushed Sekisaka two times in the side as he walked away. Sekisaka turned and ran north, and that's when he says Chavez shot him in the back. Another witness told detectives that they saw a security guard shoot Sekiseka in the back as he walked away from that bar.

Surveillance video from the club confirmed what the security guard and a witness told police, according to police paperwork. It also showed Chavez picking something up from the trunk lid or rear window area of a gray car and walking away. Police say Chavez hid the expended bullet casing from his gun before officers arrived.
Arizona's Family also obtained a copy of the surveillance footage, which shows Sekisaka pointing a gun in the air and then running away to the back of the parking lot where Chavez shined a flashlight and then shot Sekisaka.

When detectives confronted Chavez about the video and hiding evidence, he admitted to picking up the casing and putting it on the lid of a trash can in front of the convenience store north of the club. He said he did this because "he was told to hide evidence of a shooting by the person who taught him to shoot" and that he was scared and didn't want to go to prison. Chavez was arrested and booked into the Maricopa County Jail. Chavez faces charges of second-degree murder and tampering with evidence. azfamily.com

The 20-year-old employee was treated for his injuries at the restaurant. orlandosentinel.com

Aventura, FL: Moviegoer criticizes Aventura Mall's emergency alert system after shooting
Two days after a shooting at Aventura Mall left three people injured, a moviegoer criticized the shopping center for not alerting him and other customers about the incident as it played out. Luis Villanueva told 7News Monday he was surprised that the movie he went to see with his nephews at AMC kept playing Saturday afternoon as the gunmen opened fire on the other side of the mall and not shut off. In response, the mall management said that there is an emergency system in place.

Cellphone video captured the chaos and confusion in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's shooting, as people were seen hiding inside locked stores, running toward exits and making their way to parking lots. "Twenty minutes after my shift starts, you hear gunfire and everybody running to the back," Josephina Golubov said. Police surrounded the shopping hotspot as more than 150 people called 911 for help.

Inside, officers would find at least three people injured after an argument between two groups turned violent outside the Hugo Boss store near the Nordstrom. "Two groups of individuals, as far as we can tell, got into a verbal altercation that then resulted in a physical altercation," said Aventura Police Maj. Michael Bentolila. "One individual displayed a weapon. From the other group, another individual pulled a weapon and actually used it inside the mall."

As the panic played out among customers inside the mall, and gunshots echoed through the corridors, dozens of people inside the AMC movie theater were watching a movie, oblivious to the fact that there was a shooting and the mall was on lockdown.

"Nothing. Nothing went on, nobody said anything. The movie kept playing," Villanueva said. Villanueva said he and his nephews only knew about the shooting from an app notification on their phones. "It blows my mind that if something serious would've happened over there, we would've had a major problem because they seem to have no emergency plan in place," he said.

Mall management said there was an emergency system and it was used, telling 7News, "Aventura Mall operates a system that alerts all tenants simultaneously in the event of an emergency. The tenants then inform their guests of the situation and conduct appropriate procedures. The system was activated after the incident occurred Saturday." wsvn.com

Norton, VA: Update: Norton Police Chief James Lane is in Stable Condition following surgery after a shooting outside Walmart
Lane was shot twice during Friday night's shooting near a Norton Walmart. Investigators have released the name of the suspect in Friday's shooting that injured Norton Police Chief James Lane. James Dyer Buckland, 36 of Pound, has been charged with attempted capitol murder, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The shooting happened near the Norton Walmart. According to Virginia State Police, Lane was responding to a call about a shoplifter at a business on Commonwealth Drive. "As Norton Police Chief James Lane pulled up to the parking lot, he encountered a male pedestrian," VSP said in a release. "The man began shooting into the chief's vehicle, striking the chief. The chief returned fire." State police say a Norton police officer also fired at Buckland. A handgun belonging to the suspect was recovered at the scene,. Lane and Buckland both suffered gunshot wounds and were flown to Johnson City Medical Center for treatment of serious injuries. wjhl.com

Cincinnati, OH: CBP Seizes $866K Worth of Fake Cartier, Van Cleef,
Louis Vuitton Jewelry
On May 5, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in Cincinnati seized a shipment of jewelry deemed to be counterfeit by CBP's Centers of Excellence and Expertise. The package originated from Guangzhou, China, and was headed to a private residence in Akron, Ohio. Although it had a declared value of $80, the package held 383 items of jewelry bearing trademarks from Cartier, Van Cleef and Arpels, and Louis Vuitton. The jewelry would have been worth $866,120 had they been real.

Intellectual property is an important component of the U.S. economy, and Cincinnti Port Director Richard Gillespie emphasized the necessary role CBP plays in protecting the economy and consumer safety and health. "We continue to enjoy unprecedented growth in e-commerce, and this growth serves as an ever-larger driving force behind the U.S. and world economies. It's extremely important that as our trade avenues expand, our focus on enforcing intellectual property rights violations expands with it. Our officers are working hard day and night to guard our frontline against defrauders expecting to make money selling fake merchandise."

There are several steps that consumers can take to protect themselves when shopping online. Purchase goods only from reputable retailers and be wary of third-party vendors. Check seller reviews and verify there is a working phone number and address for the seller, in case you have questions about the legitimacy of a product. CBP has also established an educational initiative to raise consumer awareness about the consequences and dangers associated with purchasing counterfeit and pirated goods online or in stores.  cbp.gov

Perception becomes reality slowly on a macro level and it's difficult to change it if it's incorrect or doesn't portray the truth. It's the same reason law enforcement separates witnesses to ensure clarity and truth. The group mind becomes influenced by opinion and agendas and distorts the true reality. One can only rely on daily vigilance based on doing what's right to hopefully impact the individuals one works with on a daily basis to carry the experience forward and be witness to what is right.
