Violence & Protests

35 States Proposed 99 Bills to Limit Where, When and How Demonstrators
Can Protest - 3 Proposed at the Federal Level

As 'Anti-Riot' Laws Pass, Legal Challenges Grow
Weeks after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law what he called "the strongest anti-looting, anti-rioting, pro-law-enforcement piece of legislation in the country," two different federal lawsuits sought to overturn it.

The 52-page law, known as H.B. 1, expanded the definitions of rioting and inciting a riot. It added stiffer penalties for riot-related offenses and barred defendants from being released on bail before their first court appearance. The law made it a felony for three or more people to act jointly in a way that could harm people or property. H.B. 1 also created an affirmative defense for those who harm or kill protesters accused of "acting in furtherance of a riot."

Since last May, the number of bills seeking to limit when, where and how demonstrators can protest have tripled compared to prior years, according to data compiled by the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law.

"It's been a real spike this year at just a completely different level," Nicholas Robinson, a legal adviser for ICNL, told Law360. "We've never seen anything at the scale that we've seen this past year. The overwhelming number of bills this year were in response to the Black Lives Matter protests last summer."

Those bills target protesters who block traffic and gather without a permit. One would make it impossible to be a public employee in Indiana after an unlawful assembly conviction. Several bills make it illegal to protest near "critical infrastructure," like oil and gas pipelines. Some legislation, including the Florida law, an Oklahoma law and a bill in Iowa that seems poised to pass, have granted legal immunities to motorists who hit protesters with their cars.

Nine bills have already passed, many of them in April. Prosecutors aren't necessarily in favor of the new laws.

Vera Eidelman, a staff attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, confirmed civil rights attorneys have their eyes on the legislative landscape.

The Florida lawsuits could serve as a bellwether for future litigation that could challenge these laws as unconstitutional, according to Rachel Kleinman, senior counsel for the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and co-counsel for the Dream Defenders suit. law360.com

For a second year, most U.S. police departments decline to share information on their use of force
FBI is trying to create a reliable database on police shootings, but only 27 percent of local and federal agencies are contributing numbers

Despite a presidential order, congressional demands and a proposed new law requiring police to tell the FBI how often officers use force, for the second straight year only about 27 percent of police departments have supplied data to the National Use-of-Force Data Collection program launched in 2019. With such a meager response, the FBI will only release a list of participating agencies and no data whatsoever about how often police fire their weapons, cause serious injury or kill people.

It's a source of ongoing frustration among law enforcement executives, whose only nationwide data on police use-of-force comes from databases created by The Washington Post, and websites such as Fatal Encounters and Mapping Police Violence. In 2015, then-FBI Director James B. Comey told top policing officials he could get the latest box office data on popular movies, but "it's ridiculous - it's embarrassing and ridiculous - that we can't talk about crime in the same way, especially in the high-stakes incidents when your officers have to use force."

But the submission of such data by the police is voluntary. And attempts to induce the police to supply the numbers so far haven't worked. washingtonpost.com

Editor's Note: The same holds true for the annual FBI Uniform Crime Reporting Program (UCR). It's a voluntary non-funded report that takes a significant amount of time for the 18,000 agencies to compile and submit.

WSJ Opinion / Commentary
The Deadly Results of Defunding the Police
In 2020 nearly four children and teens were shot and killed each day in America on average. Yet the national press habitually ignores any victim who isn't killed by the police, distorting our understanding of what is really going on.

The movement to "defund the police," which rose to prominence after Floyd's death, has actually gotten innocent black people killed. As police have pulled back, our neighborhoods have been left unprotected. Crime has skyrocketed. Major American cities saw a 33% increase in homicides last year as a pandemic swept across the country.

A recent Gallup poll found that 81% of black people say they don't want less police presence in their communities.

As radical progressives continue to try to defund the police, our families, friends and neighbors have paid the price. The defund-the-police movement has been a death sentence for innocent black children. Parents and grandparents suffer mightily from the grief.

I have dedicated much of my life to solving the problem of violence in America's low-income neighborhoods, and I can tell you that the answer isn't to slash police funding.

Over the past year, we have focused too much on oppression from outside the black community and not enough on what's happening inside our neighborhoods. Our kids have been paying the price. It's time to rally around the police and our families to work for healing, protection and transformation. wsj.com

6,500 Officers Drafted for Possible Violence as World Leaders Meet
Thousands of UK police poised for G7 protests
Thousands of police have been drafted in from across Britain to beef up security for what organisers promise will be disruptive and "annoying" protests when G7 leaders gather for a summit this week.

The first in-person meeting of the leaders of major developed economies for nearly two years will take place in Cornwall on the tip of southwestern England, with the focus on the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change.

Police have closed off roads and coastal paths to Carbis Bay, the small seaside resort which is hosting the event, erecting steel fences and putting other restrictions in place.

An extra 5,000 officers have been drafted in to help the operation with about 6,500 officers and staff involved altogether, Devon and Cornwall Police said.

While the threat of terrorism remains - Britain is on its third highest alert level of "substantial", meaning an attack is considered likely - the most overt issue will be dealing with a swathe of protests, some of which will endeavour to cause major disruption to highlight their causes. reuters.com

More Cops Punished for BLM Protest Misconduct
Three Ohio police officers charged after their response to BLM protests
A special prosecutor and independent investigator filed charges against three Columbus, Ohio, police officers Wednesday as part of an investigation into alleged misconduct during the George Floyd protests last summer, according to the city's Department of Public Safety.

Officer Traci Shaw was charged with three counts each of assault, dereliction of duty and interfering with civil rights, after video taken at the event allegedly showed Shaw exiting her police cruiser and pepper-spraying individuals.

Officer Phillip Walls was charged with two counts each of assault, dereliction of duty and interfering with civil rights, after video allegedly showed him pepper-spraying "peaceful protestors who are standing on the sidewalk," according to a complaint.

Sgt. Holly Kanode was charged with one count of falsification and one count of dereliction of duty, after she allegedly told an officer filling out an arrest report that the individual had "grabbed hold of another Officer and jerked him to the ground with his gear," despite body camera evidence to the contrary, according to a complaint. cnn.com

NYC's Crime Surge Could Boost Ex-NYPD Officer in Mayoral Race
Why NYC Might Elect a Former Cop as Mayor

One year after the anti-police brutality protests.

Eric Adams has consistently polled at or around the top of the heap of people running in the Democratic primary for New York City mayor-and the Democratic primary is widely considered the determinant of who wins the mayor's office this fall.

Adams was an officer in the NYPD for more than 20 years, and he has centered that experience during his campaign. Standing with the police is not an obvious way to win a Democratic primary right now, especially since the debate over police brutality has been going on a long time in this city.

But violent crime is up in New York, people who study this kind of thing are finding it hard to explain why, and public safety is now on people's minds. Does Adams' polling success posit a different direction for the same city that saw massive protests against police violence just last summer? slate.com

Looking Back on Business Lockdowns & Mask Mandates

Which Covid-19 restrictions really worked - and which ones really didn't?
After a year of debates over mask mandates, lockdowns, and school closures, that mixed evidence might suggest a certain fatalism: Did none of these state policies really matter? Or was the virus going to spread no matter what states did? Was it all for nothing?

Mask Mandates

The evidence on lockdowns may be dicey, but the science on masks is clear: They work. Even experts I spoke with who think harsh lockdowns may have been counterproductive say indoor mask mandates were clearly effective.

Social Distancing Policies

If you look at a list of states by their number of Covid-19 deaths per capita, it's hard to discern much of a pattern. States in the Northeast, where the virus first arrived and where states were most aggressive in restricting people's activities, rank at the top: New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island go first, second, third, and fourth.

But after that, the picture becomes more confused: Mississippi, Arizona, Alabama, and South Dakota - where the virus didn't land until later and which were some of the most relaxed states in their policy responses - are also in the top 10.

Lockdown Measures

The Texas story is a good example of one clear takeaway on state policies: Early interventions did help slow down Covid-19, but the longer the pandemic dragged on, the less effective they were. Some states were victims of bad timing, with the virus spreading rapidly before any of these policies could have an effect; I would put New York and New Jersey in that bucket. But other states that would also eventually see among the most cases and deaths per capita - some of those Southern and Midwestern states - may have suffered because compliance fell off, a pattern potentially driven by their states' lax policies as well as their political makeup. vox.com

"Vaccination, Vaccination, and Vaccination - It's That Simple", Fauci Said

The Pandemic: Will You Need a Booster Shot in 2022?
"This may become an annual wellness strategy to reduce the effects of the virus as we do with the flu," said Dr. Eneida O. Roldan, chief executive officer of the Florida International University Health Care Network.

COVID-19, or one of its many variants, will still be circulating in 2022, but at much lower levels because of vaccinations.

"I don't think we'll ever go back to 2019 where we'll have no COVID," said Dr. Sergio Segarra, chief medical officer for Baptist Hospital. "I think there will always be a certain amount of our population that will have COVID."

Vaccines will mainly be given through pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens and Publix, just like the flu shot.

One constant: the challenging, but critical, public health mission to combat vaccine hesitancy and misinformation, particularly in underserved communities. Efforts to get people shots across the world will still be underway.

The U.S. will likely control COVID-19, which means the disease will be manageable enough that there will only be occasional cases instead of outbreaks, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said during FIU's annual Hemispheric Security Conference in May.

"Vaccination, vaccination, and vaccination. It's as simple as that," Fauci said. "We have been fortunate enough that we have a highly effective series of vaccines - not just one - that if we vaccinate the overwhelming portion of the population, we can get to that strict control." govtech.com

America's Race to Vaccinate the World

Biden to Send 500 Million Doses of Pfizer Vaccine to 100 Countries Over a Year

The White House's move is part of a nascent campaign to inoculate the world, and came as President Biden faced intense pressure to do more.

President Biden, under pressure to aggressively address the global coronavirus vaccine shortage, will announce as early as Thursday that his administration will buy 500 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine and donate them among about 100 countries over the next year, according to people familiar with the plan.

The White House reached the deal just in time for Mr. Biden's eight-day European trip, which is his first opportunity to reassert the United States as a world leader and restore relations that were badly frayed by President Donald J. Trump.

"We have to end Covid-19, not just at home, which we're doing, but everywhere," Mr. Biden told American troops after landing at R.A.F. Mildenhall in Suffolk, England. "There's no wall high enough to keep us safe from this pandemic or the next biological threat we face, and there will be others. It requires coordinated multilateral action."

People familiar with the Pfizer deal said the United States would pay for the doses at a "not for profit" price. The first 200 million doses will be distributed by the end of this year, followed by 300 million by next June, they said. The doses will be distributed through Covax, the international vaccine-sharing initiative. nytimes.com

Applicants Holding Employers Accountable
Applicants are actually openly screening potential employers

Job Candidates Seek Assurances on Workplace Safety, Flexibility
Only one-quarter of surveyed workers prefer to be in the office full time

Job seekers are holding potential employers to higher standards in workplace health and safety efforts, diversity initiatives, and flexible work arrangements in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic and social unrest of 2020, according to a recent survey.

Amber Ferrari, marketing manager at Jobvite, added that the bottom-line takeaway from the survey is that recruiters and employers must continue to personalize the candidate and employee experience if they want to attract and hire the best talent.

#1 Concern for Job Seekers: Fear of COVID-19

Exposure to COVID-19 is a principal concern for job seekers. Nearly 60 percent of respondents would turn down a job if the employer did not have clear health and safety protocols related to the virus in place. The same percentage of job seekers have inquired about prospective employers' COVID-19 safety measures. About 55 percent said they have or would decline a job offer if the employer did not require employees to wear masks at the workplace.

Vaccines are a divisive issue: About half of respondents think employers should require employee vaccinations, while 36 percent are opposed to mandating the vaccine. Half of those who disagree with a vaccine mandate would not get a vaccine even if it was incentivized by their employer.

"Job seekers are feeling empowered to ask about these things," Gilliam said. "They know they have a choice of job, and it shows they will do what's right for them and their personal situation."

Flexible Work

Job candidates value flexible work options and prefer a hybrid in-person/remote-work arrangement once the pandemic subsides, according to the survey. Nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of surveyed job seekers said the availability of remote work figures highly in their decision to reject or accept a job offer, and 35 percent said they have declined or would decline a job offer that required them to work only in person. Just one-quarter of surveyed workers prefer to be in the office full time.

Workplace Culture and Diversity

The importance of company culture and diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) efforts play a big part in the decision to apply for a job. About 86 percent of job seekers say workplace culture is somewhat or very important, and 49 percent inquired about the employer's goals and efforts around improving diversity in the workplace during their job interviews. Forty-two percent said they would reject a job offer if the company lacked diversity or clear goals for improving diversity in hiring. shrm.org

'Night Shots' Program Launched by Rite Aid

Lawsuit Over COVID Protocol Violations
A former employee is suing In-N-Out, accusing it of violating labor laws and COVID protocols in California
A former In-N-Out employee filed a lawsuit accusing the chain of violating the state labor code and COVID-19 protocols, National Restaurant News reported.

Luis Becerra's June 7 complaint accuses In-N-Out of retaliation for using sick leave and engaging in protected activities, failing to enforce COVID safety regulations, and not paying wages owed at the end of employment. Becerra worked for In-N-Out for five years until May 2020, when he says he was unfairly terminated. businessinsider.com

Bezos Follows Up on Promise to Employees - Funds New Effort With NSC
Amazon and National Safety Council Create First-of-its-Kind Partnership
To Solve the Most Common Workplace Injury in the U.S.

The five-year partnership between Amazon and NSC will work to invent new ways to prevent common musculoskeletal injuries, like sprains and strains

Today Amazon and National Safety Council (NSC) announced a five-year partnership to invent new ways to prevent the largest category of workplace injuries in the U.S., musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Amazon and NSC have been working together for months on this first-of-its-kind collaboration.

"Through this partnership we'll be able to solve problems that people face every day so they can live their fullest lives," said Lorraine Martin, president and CEO of National Safety Council. "Going to work should be a positive, rewarding, and safe experience. We are grateful for the generous support of Amazon to help companies around the world solve this important issue while fueling our nonprofit mission to keep employees safe in the workplace."

The partnership will aim to prevent MSDs across a variety of industries by engaging key stakeholders, conducting research, inventing new technology and processes, and scaling the results. The collaboration is made possible by Amazon's $12 million contribution, the largest corporate contribution in the history of NSC, and will include five key components:

Advisory Council: Establishing an international advisory council to bring together safety experts, corporations, and researchers in public and private sectors. The advisory council will work together to review the most promising approaches to MSD prevention, shape the development of partnership components, and engage external parties on MSD prevention.

Support Grows for New Measurements to Assess Retail Industry
As e-commerce has grown, the way the retail industry's performance is measured and assessed has remained the same.

And that's likely not providing an accurate picture, according to the National Retail Federation, which recently backed up calls for a new "Satellite Account" to better measure the industry.

Traditional statistical measurements from the Bureau of Labor Statistics likely aren't reflecting the whole truth about the industry. Namely, the federal stats don't separate e-commerce, which boomed over the last year. The government numbers also count "retail" workers as those who work in stores, which misses the thousands of others who work in warehouses and distribution centers to fulfill online orders.

"In recent years, critics have claimed the retail industry is facing an existential crisis, that retail is not growing and that we are entering--if not already in--a retail apocalypse," National Retail Federation Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenzsaid. "This is not an accurate picture, and the analysis driving this conclusion is incomplete. But why has this become the conventional wisdom? The lack of government data that accurately reflects the retail industry is at least partially to blame.

In need of an update to the industry's measurements, BLS asked NRF's Committee on National Statistics to assess the industry standards of productivity measurements. The Committee's recommendation was to create a labor productivity satellite account to track or analyze different components of the retail industry. According to NRF, satellite accounts pull data together to provide a better picture of economic sectors that cross traditional lines. There are examples from other industries, including health care, outdoor recreation and small business, that BLS could learn.

"NRF has been a strong advocate for better retail data from government agencies and has emphasized the need to capture aspects of the industry's transformation that are not reflected in current statistics," Kleinhenz said. "We are hopeful that work on creation of a retail satellite account will begin immediately, and we are prepared to bring industry perspective to assist in the launching of this essential and timely initiative." retailleader.com

Editor's Note: The exact same argument can be said of the retail Loss Prevention and Asset Protection industry. With LP & AP data and the industry itself being virtually non-existent in the government agencies data collection and reporting efforts.

With crime data, shrinkage data, and job classification data for retail LP and AP. With inclusion, standardization, and redefining being the three objectives.

Don't Expect Retailers to Just Start Speeding Up Vendor Payments Any Time Soon
Welcome to the New Normal

Will Extended Payments to Suppliers Last Beyond the Pandemic?
Now, more than a year later, some retailers are still pushing for extended payment terms to remain in place, wanting to hold on to the extra cash, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Since the start of the pandemic, chief financial officers have put a focus on cash, with companies aiming to boost their cash balances in 2021. That's led to companies wanting to keep the flexible timelines with suppliers. Retail, in particular, faced some of the biggest cash-flow challenges of the pandemic.

In the first quarters of fiscal 2021, the average number of days it took big U.S. companies to pay suppliers rose to 58 days, up 5.5% from the average of 55 days seen in the same period last year, Hackett Group data found. For fiscal year 2020, the average days to payment reached 62, up 7.6% from the previous year. retailleader.com

Editor's Note: With what everyone just went through and are still going through, remember the 'Apocalypse', that certainly is still steaming along like a five engine train. Online is still sucking the blood out of the brick and mortars, which will only continue to grow. So cash flow for everyone in retail will continue to be the #1 priority and stretching payables regardless of who it is, is the only tool they have.

So the best course of action is get use to it and be grateful you're still in the game. And turn it into a positive. Let your client know that the relationship and partnership is what matters and if you can help their situation out normally by not balking at longer payments, then maybe once in a while when you're in a crunch, you can call in a favor for a faster payment on one or two invoices. Hey just some thoughts from a vendor who once waited one year for a payment. But I still got the payment. - Gus Downing

McD's Racial Bias Lawsuit Dismissed
McDonald's beats racial bias lawsuit brought by black franchise owners
A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit accusing McDonald's of racial discrimination for steering black franchise owners to underperforming stores.

In a decision on Tuesday, US District Judge Harry Leinenweber said the plaintiffs did not show that McDonald's executives or managers treated black store owners differently from non-black owners, or when this might have occurred.

"The court does not mean to imply that McDonald's operations over the years have not been tainted by the brush of racism," but historical discrimination did not justify the lawsuit, the Chicago-based judge wrote.

James and Darrell Byrd, brothers with four McDonald's restaurants in Tennessee, accused the company of placing black franchisees in economically undesirable inner-city locations with high security and insurance costs and below-average sales.

They also said the Chicago-based fast-food chain denied black owners the same opportunities for growth and financial assistance that it offered white owners. Leinenweber said the Byrds could amend their complaint, but dismissed their steering claims for good because the statute of limitations had run out. nypost.com

These businesses found a way around the worker shortage:
Raising wages to $15 an hour or more
Across the country, businesses in sectors such as food service and manufacturing that are trying to staff up have been reporting an obstacle to their success - a scarcity of workers interested in applying for low-wage positions.

The experience of 12 business operators interviewed by The Washington Post who raised their minimum wage in the last year points to another element of the equation: the central role that pay - specifically a $15-an-hour minimum starting wage - plays in attracting or dissuading workers right now.

Nine of the businesses had increased pay to at least $15 an hour since March, amid struggles to hire in the face the tight labor market. The other three increased wages last year.

"The more employers improve the quality of the jobs and the more they think of workers as an asset that needs to be maximized, the better they're going to be able to find and retain workers long term," he said.

One restaurant raised their minimum wage to $15 an hour and "We've seen an explosion of interest," Puckett said. Job applications increased fivefold on its website and were 10 to 15 times higher on the jobs portal Indeed, he said.

Other business owners said that they had raised wages to out-compete other companies for the best workers. washingtonpost.com

Subway franchisees say a new contract forces them to sign away their First Amendment rights to criticize the struggling chain
Subway is forcing franchisees to choose between higher fees and a "draconian" new agreement, creating yet another conflict at the struggling chain.

In recent weeks, insiders have been buzzing about a new deal that Subway presented to franchisees at renewal time. The agreement is significantly stricter than the prior one, granting Subway control over hours of operation, requiring franchisees to participate in menu promotions, and banning negative comments about the company "in any forum."

A representative for Subway told Insider that the agreement was "competitive and comparable with other franchise agreements" in the restaurant industry. John Gordon, an expert on the restaurant industry, said that "no one in their right mind" would sign Subway's new "draconian" agreement.

Subway franchisees have another option if they don't want to sign the new agreement, but it's financially onerous. businessinsider.com

New Rules for Food Delivery Platforms
NY Liquor Authority adopts new rules on food delivery fees
The SLA on Wednesday adopted new rules that will require New York restaurants with a liquor license to add up all the fees a delivery company charges them each year to ensure the they don't exceed 10 percent of the restaurant's annual revenue.

If the fees exceed 10 percent of the restaurant's annual revenues, the delivery company will need to be added to the restaurant's liquor license.

The SLA adopted the new rules to address concerns that food delivery apps like Grubhub, Uber Eats and Doordash may be violating long-standing rules prohibiting businesses with a liquor license from sharing their profits or revenues with anyone not already on that license. nypost.com

Bet JBS CEO Can't Wait for His Congressional Tongue Lashing

JBS Pays Up - $11 Million to Get Back to Business!
The world's largest meat processing company said Wednesday that it paid an $11 million ransom to cybercriminals after it was forced to halt cattle-slaughtering operations at 13 of its meat processing plants. JBS confirmed the payment in a statement following a cyberattack attributed to the Russian-speaking ransomware gang "REvil."

The company ultimately paid the ransom in Bitcoin cryptocurrency to prevent further disruptions of the meat plants, mitigating potential damage to the food supply - including restaurants, grocery stores and farmers that rely on JBS production.

"This was a very difficult decision to make for our company and for me personally," said Andre Nogueira, CEO of JBS USA, in a statement. "However, we felt this decision had to be made to prevent any potential risk for our customers."

U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on Wednesday cautioned that ransomware attacks are "getting worse and worse," echoing concerns of White House officials who have orchestrated emergency meetings to brainstorm responses to the national security threat.

National security adviser Jake Sullivan on Wednesday told reporters aboard Air Force One that President Biden would "100%" bring up cyberattacks in his upcoming meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin. "All ransomware attacks are crimes," Sullivan added. "They should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and every responsible nation should take action against the criminals." cbsnews.com

Mum's the Word on What Amazon Actually Did to Get $425M Fine
Amazon Faces Possible $425 Million EU Privacy Fine
Case relates to alleged violations of Europe's General Data Protection Regulation

A European Union privacy regulator has proposed a fine of more than $425 million against Amazon.com, part of a process that could yield the biggest-yet penalty under the bloc's privacy law, people familiar with the matter said.

The Luxembourg case relates to alleged violations of Europe's General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR, linked to Amazon's collection and use of personal data, and isn't related to its cloud-computing business, Amazon Web Services, one of the people familiar with the matter said. The person declined to elaborate on the specific allegations against Amazon.

An Amazon spokesman declined to comment. The company has previously said the privacy of its customers is a priority and it complies with the law in all countries where it operates. A spokesman for the CNPD said the regulator wasn't allowed to comment on individual cases.

Before the draft decision can become final, it must effectively be agreed by other EU privacy regulators, a process that could take months and lead to substantive changes, including a higher or lower fine.

Luxembourg's regulator has received a handful of objections to its draft decision, including at least one saying the fine should be higher, another of the people familiar with the matter said.

The draft decision, along with the fine's size, signal a new wave of privacy enforcement against big technology companies in Europe, when Silicon Valley giants are under increasing global scrutiny.

Facebook, Alphabet, and Apple all face GDPR privacy cases decisions this year as well. wsj.com

Biden Orders Review of Foreign-Controlled Apps
Biden Revokes and Replaces Trump Order That Banned TikTok

The new order calls for a broader review of a number of foreign-controlled applications that could pose a security risk to Americans and their data.

President Biden on Wednesday revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to ban the popular apps TikTok and WeChat and replaced it with one that calls for a broader review of a number of foreign-controlled applications that could pose a security risk to Americans and their data.

The Trump order had not been carried out "in the soundest fashion," Biden administration officials said in a call with reporters, adding that the new directive would establish "clear intelligible criteria" to evaluate national security risks posed by software applications connected to foreign governments, particularly China.

Mr. Biden's order reflects a growing urgency among American officials, both Republican and Democrat, to aggressively counter what they see as a growing threat posed by China's military and technology sectors. In a rare show of bipartisanship, U.S. lawmakers have also sought to reduce America's dependence on China for supply chain technology like semiconductors, rare minerals and other equipment. On Tuesday, the Senate approved a $250 billion spending package to bolster American technology research and development.

The order is the first significant step Mr. Biden has taken to approach the saga between TikTok and the Trump administration, which tried to ban the app over national security concerns but was immediately challenged in federal court. nytimes.com

CISA Addresses Rise in Ransomware Threatening OT Assets
The agency has released guidance in response to a rise of ransomware attacks affecting OT assets and control systems.

The Department of Homeland Security's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) yesterday published a fact sheet to address the rise in ransomware attacks targeting critical infrastructure and driving the threat to operational technology (OT) assets and control systems.

OT components are often connected to IT networks, giving attackers a path to pivot from IT to OT networks, officials explained in their guidance, noting accessible OT assets are an appealing target for criminals aiming to disrupt critical infrastructure for profit or to achieve other goals. darkreading.com

RSA Spins Off Fraud and Risk Business
New Stand-Alone Firm Is Tasked With Combatting Digital Commerce Fraud

RSA Security LLC has spun off its fraud and risk intelligence business into a stand-alone company named Outseer.

The new company will be led by Reed Taussig as CEO. He served in the same role since joining RSA's Fraud and Risk Intelligence business in late 2020, the company says. RSA and Outseer cited the rapid growth of digital commerce that was driven by the COVID-19 pandemic as one reason behind the move.

While Outseer will be a stand-alone private-equity-owned company, RSA Corporate will provide some services to each independent business unit where economies of scale and health benefits, for example, can be taken advantage of, Taussig says.

The new company's primary goal coming out of the gate is to continue the operation and development of the three former RSA products that are now rebranded Outseer products. govinfosecurity.com

Hacker Hits 6 Companies for $2M & his money mule/Defendant Okwara faces 62 years in prison & $1.75M in fines

Charlotte Man Found Guilty For Operating As Money Mule In $2 Million Business Email Compromise Scheme
A federal jury convicted Chukwudi Michael Okwara, 40, of Charlotte, for his involvement in a Business Email Compromise (BEC) scheme that defrauded at least six companies of approximately $2 million.

Victims of the BEC schemes located throughout the United States were then tricked by scammers to wire large amounts of funds into these accounts. Within days of receipt of the fraudulent wires, Okwara used false and stolen identities and conducted financial transactions with the fraudulently obtained proceeds in order to conceal their origins, including to make large cash withdrawals, purchase official checks, and send wires to other bank accounts under his control.

On the various counts Okwara faces over 20 - 10 - 30 - 2 yrs (62 yrs total) all toll - with a $1.750M fine and years of supervised release. justice.gov

Black Market Cannabis Gang Connected to Violence & Murders
Deputies plan to bulldoze 500 illegal marijuana grows in Antelope Valley after massive bust
Authorities seized tens of millions of dollars worth of illegal marijuana grown in the high desert Tuesday as part of an effort to curtail the black market's grip on Southern California.

Twenty-three people were arrested in the crackdown Tuesday in the Antelope Valley, 70 miles north of Los Angeles, and officials planned to bulldoze 500 illegal grows in the area over the coming days.

So-called recreational marijuana became legal in California in 2018, but the black market continues to flourish.

The massive bust was partly in response to residents' complaints of water being stolen, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said during a news conference in Lancaster. The largest grow discovered Tuesday had more than 70 greenhouses over 10 acres, with an estimated marijuana crop worth $50 million.

Villanueva did not have an immediate count of the amount of marijuana seized Tuesday, but he said officials were measuring it by the tons. Lancaster Mayor R. Rex Parris said Tuesday's operation had found $380 million worth of infrastructure and marijuana in the area.

Villanueva said the illegal grows breed violence, citing several murders related to the Antelope Valley's black market. In April, a robbery at a cultivation site resulted in a shootout. ktla.com

Cybersecurity for Cannabis Businesses
The Hidden Threat: Why Cannabis Businesses Should Care About IT Security and What To Do About It

Most cannabis business owners understand the importance of physical security but fail to see how critical IT or data security is as well.

The IT Security Threats Cannabis Businesses Face

You might not think that hackers target cannabis businesses, since cannabis businesses often have limited IT assets and many in the US don't accept credit cards, but a lot of hacking is automated these days or aimed at the easiest targets/low-hanging fruit. Even a single location cannabis business is as likely to be targeted by hackers as a large business with dozens of locations.

Employee Theft
Employee theft is a problem in the cannabis industry. You have a lot of low-paid, high-turnover workers handling an expensive, easy-to-move product with a still-thriving black market. And it's not just the physical product you have to worry about. You also have to worry about your IT. Employees can potentially steal financial data and physical devices and take customer data and sell it on the dark web.

Regulators aren't out to steal your data, of course, but they can do things just as damaging to your business if they catch you not following the rules for seed-to-sale tracking, surveillance system management, etc. - including hitting you with fines, taking away your licenses, even imposing criminal charges.

Why You Need Ongoing Security Management
Maintaining IT security isn't a one-time project that you can just set and forget. It's something you have to constantly monitor and maintain, since security threats are always constantly evolving, hackers are continually refining and adjusting their techniques, and you're continually changing your environment (adding new devices, users, software, etc.) in ways that can increase your vulnerability. Also, security breaches require early detection and rapid response in order to isolate the problem and limit damage. sapphirerisk.com

'Joints for Jabs'
Washington: Marijuana stores can offer joints for vaccines
Licensed marijuana stores in Washington state can offer free joints to promote on-site COVID-19 vaccine clinics, officials said Monday.

The state Liquor and Cannabis Board is calling the effort the "Joints for Jabs" program. The board says licensed adult-use marijuana retail shops can give away a single pre-rolled joint to anyone over 21 who gets a shot at an on-site vaccine clinic held by July 12.

The board has already allowed breweries, wineries and restaurants to offer free drinks in exchange for proof of vaccination - though alcohol-serving establishments have not had to host a clinic on-site to give out product.

Other incentives being offered in Washington include free sports tickets and prize money of up to $1 million. seattletimes.com

Germany Set to Legalize Cannabis?
Is Germany Set To Become Europe's First Recreational Cannabis Market?
A GREEN surge in Germany is opening up the possibility it could be the first European country to fully embrace adult-use cannabis. For large chunks of April and May the Greens have vied with Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrat-led coalition for top spot in the opinion polls.

And, with a federal Bundestag Election looming this September, the arithmetic behind some form of adult-use reform now looks promising for its supporters. Long-standing German cannabis advocate Georg Wurth has been the spokesman and director of the German Cannabis Association since its launch in 2002.

This switch in Germany's attitude to cannabis is demonstrated in regular polls conducted by The German Hemp Association. These started in 2014 with 30% support for legalisation with the later polls showing support rising to 46%. It no longer conducts a poll into decriminalisation after the 2018 survey showed 59% backing. cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

Main Objective - Blow Up Amazon Data Center - Averted by Undercover FBI Agents
Texas Man Pleads Guilty to Plotting to Attack Data Centers
A Wichita Falls man who plotted to blow up a data center in Virginia pleaded guilty Wednesday to malicious attempt to destroy a building with an explosive. Seth Aaron Pendley, 28, was arrested in April after attempting to obtain an explosive device from an undercover FBI employee in Fort Worth.

In plea papers, Mr. Pendley admitted that he disclosed his plan to blow up a prominent tech company's data center to a confidential human source via Signal, an encrypted messaging app, in January. Mr. Pendley then showed the source a hand-drawn map of a data center on Smith Switch Road in Virginia.

"The main objective is to f*** up the Amazon servers," he said, adding that he hoped to anger "the oligarchy" enough to provoke a reaction that would convince the American people to take action against what he perceived to be a "dictatorship."

Mr. Pendley now faces between five and 20 years in federal prison.

"Due in large part to the meticulous work of the FBI's undercover agents, the Justice Department was able to expose Mr. Pendley's twisted plot and apprehend the defendant before he was able to inflict any real harm," said Acting U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah. "We may never know how many tech workers' lives were saved through this operation - and we're grateful we never had to find out. Bringing to justice domestic extremists remains one of the Department's top priorities." justice.gov

Amazon Might Escape Biden's New Tax Plan
Amazon may prove exception to G7's global tax rules
The Group of Seven wealthy nations may have endorsed a plan to ensure the world's biggest companies pay a minimum global tax rate, but US tech behemoth Amazon may escape part of its provisions.

The landmark deal is supposed to help put an end to top multinationals shopping for countries with low corporate tax rates in which to book their profits instead of paying where they conduct their business.

By introducing a minimum tax rate of 15 per cent without exceptions proponents of the plan hope multinationals will have less incentive to go through complex efforts to shift where they pay taxes.

There is a second "pillar" in the plan: countries would be allowed to tax a share of the profits of the most profitable companies in the world, regardless of where they are based. The caveat: it applies only to large international firms whose profit margins exceed 10 per cent.

That would affect about 100 companies, including US tech giants such as Facebook and Google, but as some experts have pointed out, not Amazon. Despite Amazon's colossal footprint and market capitalisation of more than $1 trillion, its profit margin last year amounted to just 6.3 per cent. deccanherald.com

Palo Alto, CA: Police say 11 grab-and-run shoplifters hit Louis Vuitton for $100K in handbags
Eleven people are being sought for shoplifting from a luxury store in Palo Alto, making off with more than $100K in handbags, police said. Palo Alto police said the group stormed a Louis Vuitton store at the Stanford Shopping Center at around 5:30 p.m. on Monday and grabbed 36 handbags. The suspects fled the store, ran through the mall, and escaped in five getaway cars before police could arrive. The total value of the stolen handbags was more than $100,000, police said. Authorities said the group was well-coordinated and may be connected to a string of burglary shoplifts in other cities. One similar case happened in Palo Alto at Neiman Marcus on May 19, though the vehicles used in the incident were different. Police said the suspects left in five different cars. No one was injured and no weapons were used.  ktvu.com

Gloucester Township, NJ: Serial shoplifter who stole over $22K from Target arrested
A man who had been banned from a Target in Camden County for allegedly stealing over $22,000 worth of merchandise from the store over the course of 15 shoplifting incidents since December of last year was arrested Monday during his latest attempt, police said. Robert E. Joyner III, of Winslow Township was charged with resisting by flight, possession of a controlled dangerous substance and criminal trespassing, a disorderly persons offense, according to a statement from the Gloucester Township Police. Target Loss Prevention contacted the department on Monday at 1:09 p.m. to report that Joyner had allegedly stolen something from the store again and was now walking toward a nearby Lowe's, authorities said. Joyner was known to the store from the earlier incidents, police said. After a chase, police officers were able to catch Joyner and a black backpack he was carrying with over $500 worth of stolen electronics inside, police allege. The officers allegedly found 12 bags of heroin on Joyner after they arrested him, they said. "This serves as another example of how the Gloucester Township Police Department is actively reducing overall crime by 12.26% and violent crime by 15.63% in 2020," the department said in its release. "The Gloucester Township Police Department will continue their pro-active, plainclothes, and traffic operations near our retail establishments with new and innovative police strategies and local partnerships with retail loss prevention to curtail this type of activity." nj.com

He is also suspected of stealing another $9,000 in merchandise from Target stores in Scottsdale, Mesa and Gilbert. fhtimes.com

Manteca, CA: Pair targeted Stockton, Manteca stores in alleged organized retail crime scheme
Two Stockton residents were arrested on suspicion of organized retail crime and several other felonies last month after alleged thefts at Stockton and Manteca stores, authorities said. According to Manteca police, Stockton residents Ryan Fibrow, 27, and Michelle Blair, 52, were being monitored by loss-prevention officers at the Burlington Coat Factory in Manteca on May 13 when Fibrow was spotted fleeing out of an emergency exit with clothing and merchandise. Fibrow was met outside by Blair, also known as Michelle Spears, who was driving a silver van, police said; Blair was on probation for shoplifting. Detective David Brown, who is assigned to Manteca's Organized Retail Crimes Unit, was nearby and pulled over the vehicle. Inside were several baskets of Burlington clothing valued at $1,035, as well as $627 in stolen merchandise from a Stockton Lowe's store, Manteca police alleged. The pair had allegedly committed the Stockton theft just before targeting the Manteca store; police recovered an estimated $1,562 in stolen items. The city of Manteca's specialized pilot program was launched in 2019 under now-Chief Mike Aguilar to combat the growing crimes related to retail.Brown works with surrounding law enforcement agencies in an effort to spread enforcement to other cities in the Valley. recordnet.com

Shootings & Deaths

Saugus, MA: Deadly Crash After Unarmed 7-Eleven Robbery, Police Chase
Two cars collided head-on on a highway in Saugus Wednesday, leaving one driver dead and another - who police say had just robbed a 7-Eleven - in the hospital. Nineteen-year-old Ashley Forward from Lynn was killed Wednesday morning when police say a robbery suspect crashed into her car. The suspect, identified as 35-year-old William Leger of Somerville, was allegedly fleeing from officers and driving the wrong way on Route 107 in Saugus. Ashley Forward turned 19 in April and got her driver's license shortly after that. Her mom says she was heading home from her boyfriend's in Malden before going to her job at Target in Medford. Just before 11 a.m., Saugus Police were called to 7-Eleven on Lincoln Ave. for a report of an unarmed robbery. While responding to the scene, an officer spotted the suspect's car on Ballard Street. Police said Leger led officers on a brief pursuit. A surveillance camera from a nearby business captured the suspect turning on Route 107 driving south in the northbound lanes. Saugus Police said the officers that were following the car ended the pursuit when Leger started going the wrong way. About a half mile later, Leger slammed head-on into a car being driven by Ashley Forward. She did not survive the crash. Leger was arrested and taken to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Massachusetts State Police are still finalizing charges against him. nbcboston.com

Pembroke Pines, FL: 3 in Custody in Credit Card Fraud Bust at Gas Station
Three men were taken into custody by federal agents and police at a Pembroke Pines gas station Wednesday as part of a credit card fraud investigation, officials said. The incident happened at the Wawa station off Hiatus Road and Pembroke Road. Investigators took the three men into custody and were seen taking away three identical trucks that were parked at pumps. The trucks had empty flat beds with silver rectangular containers on the back. Pembroke Pines Police officials said they were working with the Office of Inspector General in the bust but didn't give details on the case. Former South Miami Police Capt. Michael D'Angelo said it has the look of a wholesale gasoline crime operation. nbcmiami.com

Casselberry, FL: Former convenience store employee in Central Florida convicted in credit card fraud case
"I hope this fraudster enjoyed her victim-funded shopping sprees because she will be paying for it with hard time in state prison. We will not allow fraudsters to rip off consumers in Florida-especially our great seniors. I am proud of the work of my Statewide Prosecutors in securing a guilty verdict for this criminal," Attorney General Ashley Moody said. Two of the three victims are senior citizens, according to the news release. Smith fraudulently charged nearly $3,000 on victims' credit and debit cards-including more than $1,000 spent at Sam's Club, and more than $1,000 paid to cover someone else's fine. The jury found Smith guilty of nine counts. cbs12.com
