Violence, Crime & Protests

NYC's Gun Violence Surge Continues
450+ Shootings, 500+ Victims in 2021 So far

At least half a dozen more victims of gun violence reported overnight in NYC
At least half a dozen people were shot across the Big Apple overnight, police said Thursday - as the surging gun violence shows no signs of slowing.

One of the incidents was fatal - and allegedly involved the gang member accused of opening fire on NYPD officers in Brooklyn around 11:15 p.m.

Sources said Boyce Hayward is suspected in a shooting just minutes earlier in Bushwick that left a 28-year-old man dead and a 21-year-old man hospitalized. Both victims - who sources said were members of the Crips gang - were shot multiple times in the torso inside a white BMW SUV before the suspect fled.

The fatal encounter adds to the soaring number of shootings so far this year, which has seen more than 450 shooting incidents with over 500 victims of gunplay.

Just before 1 a.m., a 63-year-old was shot in the right leg during a mugging on Avenue D near Albany Avenue in East Flatbush, cops said. The man was taken to Brookdale Hospital and the shooter is in the wind.

Two more people were injured - a 33-year-old man and a 21-year-old man - in two separate shootings just minutes apart around 11:10 p.m. in Brownsville, cops said.

Cops recorded two more shootings in the Bronx and Queens Wednesday night.

'Out of Control': San Francisco is an 'ORC Epicenter'
Organized crime drives S.F. shoplifting, closing 17 Walgreens in five years
Last year, burglaries increased in most San Francisco neighborhoods. Shoplifting decreased under pandemic lockdown, and dropped slightly the year before, but incidents are often underreported and have become more violent and brazen, police said.

Retailers attributed a majority of losses to professional thieves instead of opportunistic shoplifters, who may be driven by poverty, with one CVS leader calling San Francisco a hub of organized retail crime. Losses have shuttered drugstores providing vital services, even more critical during the pandemic as some stores give out vaccines.

The cost of business and shoplifting led Walgreens to shut 17 locations in San Francisco in the past five years - an "unpopular and difficult decision" - said Jason Cunningham, regional vice president for pharmacy and retail operations in California and Hawaii at the hearing. The company still has 53 stores in the city.

Theft in Walgreens' San Francisco stores is four times the average for stores elsewhere in the country, and the chain spends 35 times more on security guards in the city than elsewhere, Cunningham said.

At CVS, 42% of losses in the Bay Area came from 12 stores in San Francisco, which are only 8% of the market share, said Brendan Dugan, director of organized retail crime and corporate investigations at the hearing.

CVS and Walgreens said they train employees to be engaged and visible to prevent theft, but to not confront thieves directly when it could turn violent. CVS security guards in San Francisco have been regularly assaulted, especially at the Seventh and Market streets location which is now closed, Dugan said. Some businesses instead hire costly off-duty police officers.

Although the majority of CVS shoplifting incidents in the city are by opportunists, Dugan said, professional crime accounts for 85% of the company's dollar losses.

He said San Francisco is one of the "epicenters" of organized retail crime, pointing to an $8 million state bust in the Bay Area last year. sfchronicle.com

Threat of More Violence & Unrest Still Looms - Months After Capitol Attack
A sprawling investigation: What we know so far about the Capitol riot suspects

Since the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, more than 400 people who were part of the pro-Trump mob that day have been arrested - a number that could still grow substantially.

The ongoing criminal probe has swept up at least 411 suspects in what federal officials have called an unprecedented domestic attack on a branch of the U.S. government.

"I have not seen a more dangerous threat to democracy than the invasion of the Capitol," Attorney General Merrick Garland told senators in a hearing Wednesday. He called the assault "an attempt to interfere with the fundamental element of our democracy, a peaceful transfer of power."

Since January, prosecutors have secured their first guilty plea and cooperation deal, charged about 75 people with assaulting police and filed conspiracy charges against members of two far-right extremist groups. Those charged publicly so far with federal crimes hail from 259 counties spread across 44 states and D.C., according to an analysis by The Washington Post of court filings.

Yet even as prosecutors build cases alleging prior planning and coordination, the majority of those facing criminal charges were not known members of self-styled militias or other organized extremist groups, the filings show.

Some of the information that FBI agents have found so far in their investigation highlights more than just the intense violence and danger of that day - it points to the ongoing risk of politically motivated unrest. Officials estimate about 800 people were part of the human wave that stormed the Capitol complex as Congress was formalizing Joe Biden's electoral college victory - meaning hundreds of perpetrators have still not been identified.

Privately, law enforcement officials acknowledge that it could take years to identify and apprehend some of the individuals they are hunting - if they ever do - and say that there is always the possibility that some of those people, knowing they are wanted, could decide to lash out violently again. washingtonpost.com

Civilian Police Commission Rules Against LAPD
Officers who fired projectiles at protesters violated LAPD policies, panel rules
Los Angeles police officers broke department policy when they shot one protester in the head with a projectile and another in the testicles during mass protests last spring, the civilian Police Commission ruled Tuesday.

The commission reviewed the cases behind closed doors and did not explain its decisions, but provided a breakdown of its votes. It was unanimous in finding the officer out of policy in the Montano case. Four of the five commissioners found the shooting of Montemayor unjustified.

The officers found to have violated policy will now face discipline, which Moore will hand down privately due to laws regarding officers' personnel records. If the officers object to the proposed punishment, they can appeal to a Board of Rights panel, which could lessen, increase or rescind their punishment. That decision could also be appealed in state court.

The commission's rulings offered official credence to what activists and other observers have argued since the massive protests against police brutality last spring: LAPD officers repeatedly broke the department's own policies when they fired hard-foam projectiles and beanbags into fast-moving crowds and striking people who were no threat to officers or others. latimes.com

No Punishment for Seattle Officer Who Ordered Tear Gas & Blast Balls
Seattle police chief overturns discipline recommendation in protest clash
Interim Seattle police Chief Adrian Diaz has overturned a recommendation from the city's police-accountability office and decided not to discipline an officer who gave the orders for tear gas and blast balls to be used against protesters after a tug-of-war over a pink umbrella during last summer's demonstrations.

Diaz said in a Wednesday letter to Mayor Jenny Durkan and City Council President M. Lorena González that his decision in the high-profile confrontation was "grounded first and foremost in principles of fundamental fairness." The incident commander who gave the directive amid the struggle over the umbrella shouldn't be held responsible because "decisions were made at levels of command above" him.

The "pink umbrella" clash unfolded near the Police Department's East Precinct on June 1, when some demonstrators - who stood facing a line of officers across a barricade - started opening umbrellas to guard against pepper spray police threatened to deploy, videos show. An officer standing in the police line then grabbed a pink umbrella from one of the protesters, setting off a tug of war that sparked an eruption of tear gas, flash-bang devices and pepper spray, sent people running and eventually prompted police to declare a riot.

It was a prominent moment during the summer protests against police brutality - one that the city's Office of Police Accountability decided was uncalled for given that the "weight of the evidence shows that the large majority of the crowd was not acting violently at the time," the OPA said in its January findings. seattletimes.com

Private Industry Security Guard Deaths: 279   Law Enforcement Officer Deaths: 298
*Red indicates change in total deaths

Is it now reasonable to discuss the end of the pandemic? Yes, but with caveats.
New coronavirus infections in the United States have dropped to their lowest rate since mid-September and, if trends continue, will within days be lower than they have been in nearly 11 months. The numbers are good across the coronavirus data dashboard. More than half of adults have had at least one shot of vaccine, and the shots are remarkably effective at preventing severe illness and death.

Still, pandemics start quickly and end slowly. And there is a huge caveat: Infectious-disease experts have repeatedly made clear that the coronavirus, known officially as SARS-CoV-2, is unlikely to be eradicated.

Some measures to combat the novel coronavirus - including booster shots and perhaps mask-wearing and social distancing during winter, when respiratory viruses spread more easily - could remain part of our lives.

But the pandemic as we know it - a massively disruptive, lethal and terrifying health emergency that for months and months has been killing at rates comparable to cancer - could soon begin a gradual fade into memory.

That, at least, is the current, rather nuanced and potentially confusing consensus of scientists and public health officials. washingtonpost.com

'We have all longed for this moment'
Federal guidance says vaccinated Americans may go without masks
Federal health officials on Thursday advised Americans who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus that they could stop wearing masks or maintaining social distance in most settings, the clearest sign yet that the pandemic might be nearing an end in the United States.

The new recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention caught state officials and businesses by surprise and raised a host of difficult questions about how the guidelines would be carried out. But the advice came as welcome news to many Americans who were weary of restrictions and traumatized by the past year.

Permission to stop using masks also offers an incentive to the many millions who are still holding out on vaccination. As of Thursday, about 155 million people had received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine, but only about one-third of the nation, 119 million people, had been fully vaccinated.

And the pace of vaccination has slowed: Providers are administering about 2.09 million doses per day on average, about a 38 percent decrease from the peak of 3.38 million reported in mid-April. nytimes.com

Should retailers continue to require associates and customers to wear masks?
The recent CDC guidance did not specifically address businesses, although the takeaways seem clear for public-facing companies. Masks should continue to be worn by all that have not been vaccinated even when state or local rules say otherwise. That means, in practical terms, that unless a retailer has a way to verify people have been vaccinated before they enter stores, it is prudent that they continue to enforce mask wearing rules. This seems to be particularly true in locations where COVID-19 disinformation is prevalent and vaccination rates are low.

Business owners and employers are being cautioned by workplace experts not to fling open the doors and throw away their masks just yet.

Kevin Troutman, an attorney with Fisher Phillips in Houston, told SHRM Online, that employers should wait until the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) updates its workplace safety guidance before making any changes.

The New York Times reports that some states have lifted mandates following the CDC's announcement and others are holding off. Governors in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia all said they were reviewing the guidance. Others in Connecticut, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Nevada, Oregon and Pennsylvania have begun to lift mandates

Businesses want clarity so it's no surprise that many are not doing a happy dance after the CDC's announcement.

Lisa LaBruno, senior executive vice president, retail operations and innovation at the Retail Industry Leaders Association, said yesterday that the CDC had created ambiguity and "conflicting positions put retailers and their employees in incredibly difficult situations."

"We urge all retail customers and guests to follow a store's safety protocols including wearing a mask and social distancing," said Ms. Bruno. "Frontline workers deserve this respect. Retailers encourage customers that do not want to wear a mask to shop online or via curbside pickup offerings." retailwire.com

Retail America Responds to New Mask Guidance
Walmart, Target, and Starbucks are keeping mask mandates despite CDC relaxing guidance for vaccinated people
Walmart, Target, and Starbucks are among those who are still making masks mandatory for shoppers and workers in their stores, they said Thursday. Other retailers are still on the fence.

Target: Target said in a statement shared with Fox Business that it was upholding all of its coronavirus safety measures in stores. As a result, customers and workers will be required to wear masks and stay socially distanced.

Kroger: Grocery chain Kroger is also keeping masks mandates for all of its customers and workers at its nearly 3,000 stores.

Walmart: Walmart is sticking to its mask policy in stores for the time being.

Starbucks: Starbucks shoppers and workers will still be required to wear masks in its stores, the company said, according to CNN.

Home Depot: Home Depot told The New York Times that it had no plans to change its mask policy in stores.

Macy's, Walgreens, CVS, Gap, and Publix are still reviewing their mask policies or awaiting additional guidance before implementing any changes. businessinsider.com

COVID Rules - Masks - Personal Space & Seats Arrangement Causing
766% Increase in 'Unruly Behavior' & Actual 'Brawls' @ Airports & In Planes

Another brawl breaks out at Miami International Airport.
It's part of a national trend
The fight is part of a troubling trend airports across the nation are seeing, now that many people have resumed traveling. Recently, videos have surfaced showing face-mask confrontations, seat disagreements and personal space arguments. Clashes between passengers on planes have spilled over into airports.

"Airports nationwide are facing an unprecedented increase in unruly passenger behavior this year," Lester Sola, the director and CEO of Miami International Airport, said in a statement.

Citing a Federal Aviation Administration report this week, Sola said incidents of unruly passenger behavior are up from 100 to 150 formal cases in an average year to 1,300 so far in 2021, nationwide. miamiherald.com

Less than Half of California State Prison Workers Are Vaccinated
All, who spoke to CalMatters only on condition of anonymity, are among the 57% of California prison employees skipping free COVID vaccinations offered on the job as of May 10, according to data from the California Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. Experts don't think it's common that those workers chose to be vaccinated anyplace less convenient.

As California pursues herd immunity - or something close to it - some 37,000 state prison workers remain unvaccinated. In 30 of 35 institutions, less than half of employees are fully vaccinated. Currently, less than 3% of staff are waiting on their second jab, according to the statewide data.

Active COVID cases inside California prisons have slowly declined since peaking in late Dec. 2020, around the time the system rolled out its voluntary vaccination program for inmates and staff. In the past two weeks, state data shows just 14 COVID cases reported among California prisoners - but 108 cases among prison staff.

"We ended up reaching herd immunity in some prisons the tragic way - because people just got sick and died."

Since last summer, the coronavirus has swept through the state prisons, leaving at least 222 people dead and infecting more than 50,000 prisoners. Guards were also infected. Throughout the system, more than 16,000 prison staff have tested positive for the virus, and 26 employees have died, according to the data. latimes.com

Vaccine Lottery in Ohio
Ohio's million-dollar idea: Lottery prizes for vaccinations
Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine unveiled a lottery system Wednesday to entice people to get COVID-19 shots, offering a weekly $1 million prize and full-ride college scholarships in a creative bid to overcome the vaccine hesitancy that remains a stubborn problem across the nation.

The move comes as governors, health officials and community leaders are coming up with creative incentives to get more shots in arms, including insider access to NFL locker rooms and an Indianapolis 500 garage, cash incentives, various other promotions.

With three weeks to go before most state restrictions lift, DeWine rolled out the big-ticket incentives during a prime-time address. Beginning May 26, adults who have received at least one vaccine dose may enter a lottery that will provide a $1 million prize each Wednesday for five weeks. In random drawings, the state will also provide five full four-year scholarships to an Ohio public university - including tuition, room-and-board, and books - to vaccinated Ohioans under 18.

The money will come from existing federal pandemic relief dollars, DeWine said, and the Ohio Lottery will conduct the drawings. apnews.com

Hedge fund founder Dan Kamensky gets prison sentence for fraud during Neiman Marcus bankruptcy
Kamensky had previously fought the retailer in Dallas courts over the transfer of its former Germany-based Mytheresa unit to the retailer's private equity owners

The New York hedge fund founder who was charged with committing fraud during Neiman Marcus' bankruptcy last year has been sentenced to six months in prison. He could have gotten five years in prison.

Marble Ridge Capital founder Dan Kamensky, 48, pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud and extortion committed while he was on a committee of unsecured creditors in the Neiman Marcus bankruptcy.

Kamensky admitted he pressured a rival bidder to abandon a higher offer for Mytheresa, an asset owned by Neiman Marcus at the time, so that his hedge fund could buy it for a lower price. Kamensky had a legal duty to represent the interests of all unsecured creditors and secure the best offer.

Kamensky, who was a successful bankruptcy lawyer before starting his hedge fund, admitted he tried to cover up his actions by telling a Jeffries LLC investment banker to lie on his behalf. According to an FBI investigation and prosecutor's court documents, Kamensky told the banker, "This conversation never happened" and "Do you understand ... I can go to jail?" dallasnews.com

Over 100,000 Retail Jobs Open Right Now
Amazon, McDonald's, Others Woo Scarce Hourly Workers With Higher Pay
The fight is on for lower-wage workers.
Some of the biggest U.S. employers of entry-level workers are adding tens of thousands of new positions as the economy roars back from the coronavirus pandemic. Many are raising wages or adding perks to entice workers from other jobs or off the sidelines of the labor market.

Many companies have struggled to find enough available workers, though there are signs that more are entering the labor market to take some of those open positions.

Demand for workers is so high that wages are rising, too.

Amazon.com Inc. said Thursday that it would hire 75,000 more workers and offer $1,000 signing bonuses in some locations, its latest hiring spree in a year of tremendous job growth at the e-commerce giant. McDonald's Corp. said it wants to hire 10,000 employees at company-owned restaurants in the next three months and that it would raise pay at those locations. Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc., Applebee's and KFC are among other chains seeking to hire tens of thousands of workers as they restore indoor seating and seek to bolster staffing there. wsj.com

Retailers and restaurants losing workers over poor pay and crazy customers
Some workers are leaving retail and restaurant jobs to get away from low pay and difficult customers, and a growing number of openings in the labor market is making it easier to transition to new careers.

Restaurants and stores are looking to staff up and return to normal as COVID-19 restrictions lift and the country slowly reopens. Hiring has been difficult for many companies, which have reported a lack of candidates for open positions. But retail and restuarants are are also struggling to retain workers who want to leave for new opportunities. That's making the sector's labor crunch even worse.

Nearly a dozen Starbucks workers across the US told Insider about issues keeping locations staffed amid a shortage of applicants and as many current employees look for other jobs.

The labor shortage in many sectors of the economy is a boon to some dissatisfied retail workers who are suddenly able to shop around for new jobs. Now, the Starbucks manager says she is about to start a job in healthcare sales making double her current wage. She will also get better benefits.

Another Starbucks employee said after a dangerous and difficult year because of the pandemic, fatigue and treatment are top concerns. "Employees have been fired or people are quitting because we're so overworked and stressed and abused," an employee at a Midwest Starbucks told Insider.

The past year has exposed the massive demands put on retail workers, often for relatively low pay and few benefits, even as they were called heroes and essential workers. Tasked with enforcing mask mandates and interacting with customers during the height of a pandemic, abuse, harassment, and assault was not uncommon. A Service Employees International Union survey of 4,187 McDonald's workers in the summer of 2020 found that nearly half of respondents said that they had been physically or verbally assaulted.

In place of customer-facing retail jobs, some workers are turning to warehouse employment with companies like Amazon, even as those jobs make headlines for poor conditions. The e-commerce giant has hired about 2,800 people a day since July, mostly in warehouse roles. businessinsider.com

U.S. Retail Spending Unchanged/Flat in April
Shoppers pulled back on goods purchases while boosting spending on services

Retail sales-a measure of purchases at stores, at restaurants and online-overall were unchanged last month from March, the Commerce Department reported Friday. That was short of economists' expectations for a 0.8% increase and well below the upwardly revised 10.7% advance in March.

Shoppers last month reined in spending across a wide range of retail categories, such as clothing and accessories, furniture, sporting goods and general merchandise stores.

A tracker of credit- and debit-card spending from Bank of America showed that spending at department stores fell a seasonally adjusted 28% in April from March, while outlays on clothing and furniture also fell. Spending at restaurants and lodging jumped, however, as did outlays on airlines, which were up 23%.

Retail sales, excluding motor vehicles and gas stations, were up 43% in April, compared with the same month in 2020, when parts of the economy were shut down due to the pandemic, according to Affinity Solutions, a data firm that tracks credit- and debit-card spending. wsj.com

Lots of Security Needed for all the High-End Events Across the City

New York Fashion Week Will Be a Thing Again
With a few American fashion brands showing their new collections in Paris in 2017 that was confirmation of a broader nagging feeling that New York Fashion Week, which typically had attracted 150,000 attendees every February and September, was losing its cachet. (That's 300,000 high-end high-fashion attendees with lots of high end functions - events - dinner party's, etc. Needing a lot of security)

For the next three years, that narrative persisted: New York Fashion Week was either dying or already dead. (Even after two of those departing brands, Proenza Schouler and Rodarte, came back to New York in 2018.)

Now, one long quarantine later, there are signs of resurrection.

"New York Fashion Week is still the No. 1 revenue-generating event in New York."

Friday Funny: Shoplifting Seagull Gets Away With Help of Human Accomplice
Passerby helps shoplifting seagull make getaway after daring sandwich heist

A seagull known as Gus was filmed stealing a tuna sandwich from a branch of Co-op, and a witness said his crimes have escalated

The bystander watched on as Gus timed his entrance through the automatic doors to perfection, bolting straight for the display of packaged sandwiches. Jumping up onto the shelf, the brazen seagull grabbed himself tuna sandwich and walked back towards the exit, only to find he wasn't big enough to trigger the door's sensor.

With the net seemingly closing in on Gus, a well-meaning passerby spotted the bird trapped in the shop and opened the door for him to make his getaway.

But Gus hadn't come this far to fail now, throwing her a side step and a quick wing flap to make it to safety, before laying the sandwich on the pavement to admire his haul. mirror.co.uk

Software Industry Awaits Details on Biden's Order to Report Hacks
Companies could be required to report severe breaches in three days or less

President Biden's executive order on Wednesday to shore up U.S. cybersecurity will force many companies selling software to the government to report attacks on their systems, sharing information that officials and cyber experts say is increasingly important to U.S. security.

The obligations represent a shift for the private sector, which has resisted such requirements for fear of financial and reputational damage resulting from the release of sensitive information about breaches.

AdvertisementThe government still is determining which vendors the new rules will cover, what data about threats they will require and how quickly companies will need to report. Regulators' approach to specific rules in the coming months will determine the order's full impact on the private sector, cybersecurity experts and software industry lobbyists say.

Despite the outstanding questions, mandatory breach reporting will help better secure public and private computer networks, said Amit Yoran, chief executive of cybersecurity firm Tenable Inc.

More businesses and lawmakers now call for mandatory breach reporting after the hack last year of U.S. agencies and companies through a compromised software update from SolarWinds Corp.

The executive order dials up agencies' cyber practices with requirements such as multifactor authentication and imposes new standards for how federal contractors build and manage software. Regulators in the coming months plan to issue new guidelines for how contractors secure their development environments, encrypt data and tighten up access to their systems.

In the next 45 days, U.S. agencies plan to recommend which cyber incidents vendors must report to the government and what information they have to share about their attempts to prevent, detect and respond to breaches. Crucially, regulators will spell out what types of companies must comply. wsj.com

Editor's Note: Obviously, over time these new requirements will become the standards for the most part for the public sector as well. And the EU Data Protection authority will be watching and implementing various pieces of it as well.

Game Changing Rules - The Giant is Awake
The White House: Executive Order on Improving the Nation's Cybersecurity
The ambitious document uses the SolarWinds and Microsoft Exchange supply chain hacks and the Colonial Pipeline ransomware infection as springboards for a series of initiatives that aim to minimize the frequency and impact of these kinds of incidents. These initiatives are:

1. Remove barriers to threat information sharing between government and the private sector, particularly ensuring that IT service providers can share security breach information with the federal government.

2. Modernize and implement stronger cybersecurity standards in the federal government, including a move to cloud services and zero-trust architectures and multi-factor authentication (MFA) and encryption mandates.

3. Improve software supply chain security, including establishing baseline security standards for software development for software sold to the government. The Commerce Department must publish minimum elements for a software bill of materials (SBOM) that traces the individual components that make up software.

4. Establish a cybersecurity safety review board consisting of government and private sector experts who convene following a significant cybersecurity incident to make recommendations, much like the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) does in the aftermath of a major transportation accident.

5. Create a standard playbook for responding to incidents to ensure all federal agencies meet a standard playbook and set of definitions for incident response.

6. Improve detection of cybersecurity incidents on federal government networks by enabling a government-wide endpoint detection and response (EDR) system and improved information sharing within the federal government.

7. Improve investigative and remediation capabilities by creating cybersecurity event log requirements for all federal agencies. csoonline.com

DarkSide Servers & Bitcoin Stash Seized
Seems Like This Has the Ransomware Operators 'Retreating from the Spotlight'
In a blog post on the DarkSide closure, cyber intelligence firm Intel 471 said it believes all of these actions can be tied directly to the reaction related to the high-profile ransomware attacks covered by the media this week.

Some Russian cybercrime forums began distancing themselves from ransomware operations altogether. On Thursday, the administrator of the popular Russian forum XSS announced the forum would no longer allow discussion threads about ransomware moneymaking programs.

There's too much publicity," the XSS administrator explained. "Ransomware has gathered a critical mass of nonsense, bullshit, hype, and fuss around it. The word 'ransomware' has been put on a par with a number of unpleasant phenomena, such as geopolitical tensions, extortion, and government-backed hacks. This word has become dangerous and toxic." krebsonsecurity.com

DarkSide has told associates it has lost access to the infrastructure it uses to run its operation and would be shutting down, citing pressure from law enforcement and from the U.S., FireEye said.

It is not uncommon for ransomware groups such as DarkSide to disband, only to pop up later under a different name, security experts say. The group didn't respond to requests for comment earlier in the week.

It couldn't be determined if the U.S. had any role in DarkSide's claimed disruption or if the disruption was authentic. The FBI and the Justice Department didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.

President Biden on Thursday said his administration had been "in direct communication with Moscow about the imperative for responsible countries to take decisive action against these ransomware networks" and would "pursue a measure to disrupt their ability to operate," though he didn't elaborate. Asked if he would rule out whether the U.S. would respond with cyber operations, Mr. Biden replied "no." wsj.com

Rise of DarkSide: Ransomware Victims Have Been Surging
Crime Syndicate's Big Game Hunting and Advanced Extortion Risk Becoming Commonplace
For anyone wondering how a Russian-speaking, ransomware-wielding crime syndicate was able to disrupt a major U.S. fuel pipeline, a more pertinent question might be: Why didn't it happen sooner?

The DarkSide operation first appeared in August 2020 with a clear MO: To take down big targets in pursuit of massive ransom payoffs. Information security experts call this strategy big game hunting.

Unless something is done to disrupt this criminal business model, what seems audacious today risks becoming even more commonplace tomorrow.

Unfortunately, extortionists pursuing this strategy have not only been disrupting large organizations but also have seen many of them pay ransoms, yielding massive profits. (Colonial Pipeline just paid $5 million.)

Verizon DBIR 2021: "Winners" No Surprise, But All-round Vigilance Essential
Verizon's Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) covers 2020 -- a year like no other. Phishing, ransomware, and innovation caused big problems.

Verizon's annual Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) is launched today and as always provides valuable insight into the cybersecurity challenges faced by organizations. We all know that 2020 was a year like no other. Phishing and ransomware were the most "successful" of the threats, up 11% and 6% respectively. However, the rapid innovations that many organizations made in 2020 did not always address information risk and security upfront, leading to further opportunities for compromise by malicious threats. darkreading.com

RSA Conference 2021 to Showcase Resilience, Featuring NIST Experts
The RSA Conference 2021 kicks off virtually May 17, and NIST's cybersecurity experts will be on hand out of the gate to discuss the latest in cybersecurity guidance, practical solutions, and metrics.

The conference theme this year is Resilience - an especially timely theme for a world wearied by a year of pandemic. The sudden, massive uptick in working from home, distance learning, and telehealth in late March 2020 illustrated more starkly than ever before the imperative of effective cybersecurity. Widespread cyber attacks made clear the necessity of resilient networks, systems, and tools.

As we continue to examine the lessons learned over the past year, we believe that resilience will prove to be a key element in preparing for future cyber threats. Join us virtually at the conference May 17-20, and hear the most up-to-date information on data confidentiality, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, remote patient monitoring, PNT services, and much more.

Amazon to Blame for Restaurant Worker Shortage?
Amazon's higher-paying jobs may be choking restaurant industry's comeback

As restaurants struggle to find workers, one expert says Amazon is partly to blame.

Amazon has long been a disruptive force in the US market. In 2016, Amazon was blamed for killing off malls and retail chains like Borders and Circuit City through its low online prices. Now, the company may be starting to eat into the food-service industry's workforce.

The online retailer's higher pay poses a threat to minimum wage jobs and workers are fleeing the food-service industry for roles at Amazon warehouses and other online retailers, Daniel Zhao, a senior economist at Glassdoor told Bloomberg.

At the onset of the pandemic, the restaurant industry was forced to lay off 5.9 million workers - over half of its 10.6 million-person workforce, according to federal data. While restaurants were bleeding workers, companies like Amazon went on hiring sprees, increasing its personnel at fulfillment centers by 50%. In 2020, the online retailer hired an average of 1,400 new workers a day, The New York Times reported. On Thursday, the company announced it plans to hire another 75,000 workers in the US and Canada for its fulfillment centers, as well as transportation sector.

In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurant servers flocked to companies like Amazon. Last spring, job searches for "Amazon" from restaurant servers increased over 600% on Glassdoor, while searches for warehouse positions from the same group also increased over 200%.

Now, restaurants are developing incentives to lure workers back. At the same time, Amazon is beefing up its own hiring perks. businessinsider.com

Amazon in hiring blitz; giving bonus to hires who show proof of vaccination
Amazon is hiring 75,000 people across its U.S. and Canadian fulfillment and logistics network as it continues to expand its footprint and keep up with increased demand.

In addition, the company is offering a $100 benefit to the new hires who come to Amazon already vaccinated for COVID-19.

The open jobs have an average starting pay of more than $17 per hour, plus sign-on bonuses in many locations of up to $1,000. Amazon noted that it offers full-time employees "industry-leading" benefits, which include health, vision, and dental insurance, 401(k) with 50% company match, paid parental leave, and access to various company-funded upskilling opportunities. chainstoreage.com

Update: Leominster, MA: Video store owner used drug addicts, shoplifters to steal more than $1M
The owner of a Leominster video store was arrested after police said he hired "known drug addicts and prolific shoplifters" to steal items for him from various stores, which he then allegedly sold online for profits exceeding $1 million. The arrest of 66-year-old John Duplease - owner of Adopt A Video - follows a yearlong investigation led by the Leominster Police Department Criminal Investigation Bureau, which broke up the Lancaster resident's criminal enterprise, according to a press release issued by the Lancaster Police Department on Thursday. The release states search warrants were recently executed at Adopt A Video and Duplease's Lancaster home at 30 Spec Pond Ave. Police said they found 1,695 stolen items at the video store and another 4,609 stolen items at his residence. According to police, the merchandise recovered has a value of approximately $500,000.

An abundance of cash and other evidence was located at both locations as well, police said in the release.
Police allege Duplease used 26 drug addicts and shoplifters, which they identified as "boosters," to support the criminal enterprise. The boosters regularly shoplifted at numerous locations, including Home Depot, Target, Lowe's, Walmart, CVS, Stop and Shop, and Hannaford. The alleged theft caused "millions of dollars in lost revenue and millions of dollars in lost tax revenue to the State of Massachusetts," police said. The stolen items were then posted for sale on Duplease's private Amazon and eBay accounts, where he profited more than a million dollars in sales, according to police. Duplease is charged with aggravated organized retail crime over $10,000, leader of an organized retail crime and receiving stolen property over $1,200. sentinelandenterprise.com

San Jose, CA: Caught on Camera: Armed smash-and-grab at San Jose jewelry store; 3 arrested
A quiet Sunday afternoon turned into minutes of terror for two Plaza Jewelry employees. Security footage shows two armed suspects busting in, pointing handguns at workers, smashing display cases, taking jewelry and ransacking the cash registers. The video shows a male employee going to his knees with his hands up as a female worker crouches behind a display case. The robbers allegedly threatened to kill the workers if they moved. Cesar Pascal has owned the store for 45 years. The female worker seen in the security video has been with him for almost half of that time, but not after the robbery. "She doesn't want to come back to work," he said. "We can replace anything, but you can't replace an employee like that who's trustworthy and honest. She was part of the family." kmov.com

Update: Little Rock, AR: Man gets 2 years in prison for Apple thefts
A 20-year-old Texas man, linked to a multistate shoplifting ring targeting Apple stores, has accepted a two-year prison sentence for his role in the theft of 25 iPhones, MacBooks and iPads from the Little Rock store. Sentencing papers filed Thursday show Jalek Ingram received a total of three years in prison after pleading guilty to theft and commercial burglary for the March 2018 Apple store theft for a two-year term, with an additional year in prison for a second-degree battery charge stemming from his role in beating a fellow jail inmate unconscious last November. arkansasonline.com

'Blood All Over the Place'
Loudoun County, VA: Judge Sends Walmart Shooter's Case to Grand Jury
General District Court Judge Matthew P. Snow today found probable cause to send the case against Steven Thodos, who was charged with 11 felonies following a January Walmart shootout, to the May 17 grand jury for review. During a more-than two-hour preliminary hearing on Thursday, the prosecution team of Commonwealth's Attorney Buta Biberaj and Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Angela Vernail, and Assistant Public Defenders Adam Pouilliard and Elli Shahin, questioned three witnesses about the incident that took place shortly before 5 p.m. Jan. 2 at the Sterling Walmart.

Asset Protection Associate Muhammed Amin testified that he noticed Thodos, 33, in the Walmart with the same merchandise on Jan. 2 as he had two days prior. Amin said he noticed that Thodos skipped scanning some of those items at the self-checkout register. According to Biberaj, the unscanned merchandise amounted to $64.03. Amin said he then caught up with Thodos between the double-door entrance to the store and walked him into the loss prevention room near the entrance before notifying the Sheriff's Office.

The first deputy to arrive on the scene was Camron Gentry. According to witness testimony, Walmart security footage and footage from the body-worn camera on Dep. Charles Ewing, Gentry attempted to handcuff Thodos, who resisted. Thodos then pulled out a gun and began shooting. Former loss prevention employee Jade Puloskie said she saw Thodos shoot at the ground once before raising the handgun and shooting at Gentry. "I actually watched as Gentry fell to the ground," Puloskie said.

The exchange in the loss prevention room left Gentry incapacitated on the floor with four gunshot wounds and "blood all over the place," according to Amin's testimony. Gentry would spend 42 days in the trauma unit of Reston Hospital and undergo multiple surgeries. Puloskie and Amin also had gunshot wounds to their legs.

Ewing fired three rounds at Thodos as he fled the store, striking Thodos in the arm. Biberaj said 10 shots were fired in all, seven from Thodos' gun and three from Ewing's. After running out of the store, Thodos stole a pickup truck, drove south on Rt. 28, crashed the truck and fled on foot in Fairfax County. After a nearly two-hour search, Fairfax police arrested Thodos in Chantilly.

He was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated malicious wounding, one count of malicious wounding, four counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and one count of auto theft. Biberaj and Vernail agreed to not prosecute the auto theft charge. A grand jury on Monday will meet to review the case. If it returns indictments, prosecutors and Thodos' defense counsel will meet May 18 in Circuit Court to schedule a trial date. loudounnow.com

Hancock County, IN: Man accused of stabbing woman at Speedway gas station
An Indianapolis man has been arrested and is facing multiple felony charges, including attempted murder, after a woman was stabbed in the chest Saturday night, May 8, at the Speedway store, on U.S. 40. Ronald Lee McClure, 49, is in custody at the Hancock County Jail. He will be charged with a Level 1 felony count of attempted murder and eight other counts, prosecutor Brent Eaton said. The suspect was described as an estranged boyfriend against whom the woman had received a protective order in Marion County. He fled the scene but was arrested the next day in Cumberland. The quick work of a Hancock County sheriff's Deputy, Sgt. Nick Ernstes, likely saved the woman's life, officials said.  greenfieldreporter.com

Larry Spicer, VP of LP and Risk at Jewelers Mutual Group; Grab-And-Run Jewelry Thefts: What To Watch For And How To Prevent Them
Watch this video to hear Larry Spicer, vice president of loss prevention and risk management at Jewelers Mutual Group, talk about the red flags to watch for and tips for preventing grab and run thefts from happening at your jewelry store. A grab-and-run theft is when a criminal(s) walks into a jewelry store, appearing to browse the merchandise. They typically move toward the most valuable merchandise on the showroom floor and ask to see a particular piece. From there, they simply run off with whatever they asked to view. The number of small-scale thefts reported to the Jewelers' Security Alliance every year remains staggering. Each incident may represent a small dollar amount when compared to other types of crimes, but they add up fast. adiamondisfornow.com

Springfield County Market employee sits on suspected shoplifter
A shocking video now going viral depicts an altercation outside of a Springfield County Market store. Witnesses say it happened in front of the store near 2nd and Carpenter streets. Springfield Police say it started with suspected shoplifting, and the incident is now being investigated. In the two-minute video, a crowd of people gathers around a woman on the ground who is screaming. "She's pregnant," one person yells. "Get off of her," shouted another.

They're yelling at a man in a blue shirt, a County Market employee, as he sits on the woman's back, pinning her to the ground. "You're hurting me!" the woman continuously shouted. Witnesses begged the employee to move. About a minute and a half into the video, the man identifies himself as a manager and called the police for help.

Deputy Chief Joshua Stuenkel from the Springfield Police Department confirmed police responded at 5:15 p.m. "What we were told is that an employee tried to stop a retail theft suspect, and when that occurred, other individuals then battered the employee," Deputy Chief Stuenkel said. We called the corporate offices for County Market for more information. They said the incident started inside the store and that their employee was assaulted. Gerry Kettler with County Market said, "one of our associates is now suffering from a concussion and Mace burns."

We asked if that associate was still employed. Kettler responded that the employee with the concussion was put on leave immediately. Kettler also said County Market has video of the incident from inside the store, which they've turned over to police. Springfield Police tell us the woman in the video was not on the scene when they arrived. There's no word on her condition. Police say no arrests have been made at this time. newschannel20.com

Hebron, KY: Take a look inside U.S. Customs & Border Protection at CVG
Every day, officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection intercept all kinds of illegal things, from exotic animals to drugs to fake designer bags. The work is methodical, but the job is pretty simple: "Protect America. We are looking for, as an agency, as a whole, we're looking for bad people and bad things," Port of Cincinnati Director Richard Gillespie said. And the officers are pretty good at that. "We tend to rank in the upper percentage of introductions, whether it be narcotics, agriculture violations, counterfeit or fraudulent documents," said Gillespie.

Cincinnati falls under the Chicago field office, which covers 12 Midwest states: Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Wisconsin, Missouri, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Pennsylvania. And, in the last three years, the field office has been busy, especially seizing drugs. In 2019:15,002 pounds. In 2020: 26,662 pounds. And as of March of this year: 13,660 pounds.

At what they call the Port of Cincinnati at the airport, the operation is huge. Officers process shipments of illegal items every day. And the work is around the clock, with most of the big busts happening in the early morning hours. "You have to respect the ingenuity of some of the smugglers. Some of the techniques that they utilize to get things in the country are pretty ingenious. Luckily, our officers and ag specialists are experts," said Gillespie. Experts conducting thousands of monthly searches, making sure millions of dollars worth of drugs and merchandise never leave the airport. local12.com

Everyday you've got to work and you've got to ask yourself what value are you adding to the company, to the industry and to your career.

If you can merely focus on the word "value" and ask yourself am I delivering it everyday, you're then one step closer to advancing your career. Because if you can build the field they will come and play.
