Violence, Crime & Protests

Treating the Crime Surge as Another Pandemic
Extra Funding, Resources to Go to Cities, Towns Experiencing Increase
in Gun Violence
Cities and towns that are seeing an increase in violence, auto thefts and overdoses will be given extra funding and more resources, Governor Ned Lamont announced at a news conference on Monday.

During the pandemic, officials said it seemed like there would be a slowdown in violence, but it has since rebounded.

"Connecticut is one of the safest places in the country, but we are not immune. Other cities and states, our violence is spiking, gun-related violence," Lamont said.

In some places, they said it rebounded sharply.

"Much of the impact of the pandemic had an effect on health economic, job, housing, impact on youth, dislocation from after school activity, in-person schooling, dislocation from the support young people need to thrive in their community," said Marc Pelka, the Undersecretary of Criminal Justice Policy and Planning at the Connecticut Office of Policy and Management.

According to Lamont, the state wants to expand community outreach to neighborhoods dealing with tension, conflict, retaliation and drugs, increase availability and access to real-time data, funding for DNA testing so it can be done quicker, funding for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to help determine what drugs are causing overdoses and also deploy specialized officers to address special/unique needs.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin said police are solving crimes in a rate we haven't seen in many years, but the goal isn't to just solve, but rather prevent.

"As we continue to fight this fight to keep our community safe, we say this has to be treated with the same level of urgency, time and commitment as we tackled the Covid pandemic," Bronin said. nbcconnecticut.com

Will Other Cities See Same Trend? Homicides Start Slowing in St. Louis
After long delay, St. Louis police publish crime data for first time in 2021

Police officials published city crime statistics for the first time in more than 6 months.

St. Louis police remain unable to compare year-over-year crime statistics and are
focusing on month-to-month comparisons, department spokeswoman officer Michelle Woodling told the Post-Dispatch this month.

The homicide data so far this year shows
killings spiked early in 2021 compared with previous years, but the city has seen fewer killings year-over-year since May.

So far in 2021,
St. Louis has had 92 homicides compared with 99 this time last year. This year's total is on pace with the average number of homicides the city has seen by the end of June for the last five years.

numbers have improved compared with the first four months of the year. From January through April, St. Louis homicides were up 21% compared with the previous five years.

from May through June 28, homicides were down 28% compared with the previous five-year average for those months. stltoday.com

Border Crisis Could Impact Crime Nationwide
TX & AZ Gov's Abbott & Ducey letter to Nation's Gov's - Urgently requesting they send all available law enforcement resources
The governors warned other states that it will have a knock-on effect to their states too.

"This failure to enforce federal immigration laws causes banns that spill over into every State. The cartels will see to it that their deadly fentanyl and human-trafficking victims reach far and wide," the letter says. "The convicted criminals they smuggle into the homeland will bring recidivism with them to far too many of your communities."

Both the federal government and border states have been dealing with a surge in migration to the border, with more than 180,000 migrants encountered in May alone -- including more than 10,000 unaccompanied children.

Officials have complained that migrants are often let loose into communities and able to travel to wherever they want.

Texas plans to finish border wall.

Surveilling Protesters Through 'Unregulated Facial Recognition Database'
South Florida cops used facial recognition in 'horrifying' scheme to target peaceful protesters
During the George Floyd protests in South Florida, facial-recognition technology was deployed to identify protesters -- who had committed no crimes - by the Broward County sheriff, and the Fort Lauderdale and Boca Raton police departments.

That finding, through joint investigative reporting by the South Florida Sun Sentinel and the Pulitzer Center, revealed the stunning degree to which police were using surveillance on protesters. That included protests in Boca Raton in which "surprising images of solidarity" had shown police officers in riot gear taking a knee with cheering protesters.

"Behind the scenes, however, police photographed protesters," the Sun-Sentinel reported Saturday. "And they ran protest-related images through a vast and unregulated facial recognition database, records show. That's like going through a crowd and inspecting people's driver's licenses, which would almost certainly be prohibited as an unreasonable search under the Fourth Amendment."

"In one case, records show, police requested matching images and identifying information for a "possible protest organizer" as well as their various "associates." In another, police ran nearly 20 searches linked to "Intelligence," a controversial use of the technology before a crime has even been committed.

"Police sometimes use facial recognition technology to track down violent and lawbreaking protesters, as Miami police did with one woman accused of hurling rocks at officers during a protest last summer. But legal experts say police go too far when they seek facial recognition matches of people assembling peacefully to make their voices heard, and it's especially troubling when they are protesting for police reform." rawstory.com

Mandatory Police De-Escalation Training
Des Moines City Council to vote on police de-escalation training contract with D.C.-based nonprofit
After announcing plans to turn to a third-party nonprofit to conduct police de-escalation training nearly a month ago, the Des Moines City Council plans to vote Monday night on a contract that will solidify the training plans for the Des Moines Police Department and is valued at about $148,000.

The partnership was first announced at a May 24 city council meeting after months of public criticism of a small team of Des Moines police officers leading de-escalation training for the department. That team had included two officers, Sgt. Michael Fong and Senior Officer Sean O'Neill, who had been named in excessive force and racial profiling lawsuits.

If approved Monday, the Police Executive Research Forum, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that provides resources for law enforcement units across the country, will lead the department's annual training, which is required under an ordinance passed by city council last summer.

PERF training, officially known as Integrating Communications, Assessment and Tactics, or ICAT, includes scenario-based lessons on defusing situations in which a suspect is unarmed.  desmoinesregister.com

NYPD Faces Another Lawsuit Over 2020 Protest Conduct
Lawmakers Sue N.Y.P.D., Saying They Were Beaten With Bicycles at Protest
Two New York lawmakers who said they were surrounded, beaten with bicycles and pepper-sprayed by the police during a Black Lives Matter protest in Brooklyn last year filed a federal civil-rights lawsuit against the city on Monday, adding to the blizzard of litigation over the Police Department's conduct during the protests.

The suit from State Senator Zellnor Myrie and Assemblywoman Diana Richardson accuses the police of violating their free-speech rights, assaulting them and illegally detaining Mr. Myrie. It names Mayor Bill de Blasio, Police Commissioner Dermot F. Shea and six individual officers as defendants.

The lawsuit comes on the heels of one filed by the state attorney general in January demanding a court-appointed monitor to oversee the policing of future protests, a class-action suit filed on behalf of protesters and preliminary court papers filed by more than 400 individual protesters. The city faces the possibility of millions of dollars in payouts. nytimes.com

Burlington County Man Gets 28 Months Fed Prison for Looting, Smashing Store Fronts, Lighting Police Cars on Fire During May 2020 Civil Disorder
Killian F. Melecio, 20, of Columbus, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty by videoconference before U.S. District Judge Brian R. Martinotti to an information charging him with one count of attempting to obstruct, impede, or interfere with law enforcement officers during a civil disorder affecting commerce.

On May 31, 2020, large-scale protests were held throughout the United States, including in Trenton, in response to the death of George Floyd. Although the May 31st protest in Trenton was peaceful earlier in the day, violence erupted later. A group of individuals proceeded down East State Street in downtown Trenton and began to smash store fronts, loot stores, and attack multiple marked Trenton Police Department vehicles parked on the 100 Block of East State Street.

Melecio and two co-conspirators were filmed lighting Trenton police cars on fire ad was arrested on August 5, 2020. In addition to the prison term, Judge Martinotti sentenced Melecio to three years of supervised release. Spry and Dockery have previously pleaded guilty. Spry is scheduled to sentenced on Aug. 3, 2021, and Docker is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 21, 2021. justice.gov

Defendant with criminal convictions in Seattle & Kitsap County Gets 5 years in prison for crimes during civil unrest in May 2020

Lighting a Seattle Police Car on Fire, Stealing a Rifle out of Squad Car, & Assaulting other individuals.

Tyre Wayne Means, Jr., 25, will serve the sentence concurrent to a sentence in Kitsap County Superior court for burglary. At the sentencing hearing U.S. District Judge Richard A. Jones said, "Your conduct was reckless, destructive and extremely dangerous to those who were there for peaceful protest."

Just after 4 p.m. on May 30, 2020, Means, Jr., was captured on video lighting a paper towel and placing it in the back of a Seattle Police patrol car parked outside of Nordstrom on Sixth Avenue in downtown. Other persons in the crowd fed the fire with lighter fluid and other accelerants, and the vehicle was destroyed by fire. After he lit one patrol car on fire, Means, Jr., is observed on video reaching through the destroyed rear window of a different patrol car and removing a rifle bag. Means, Jr., opened the bag and looked inside. Means, Jr., is seen fighting with an unidentified man who tried to retrieve the rifle bag before Means, Jr., ran from the scene. A subsequent surveillance video on Pine Street, around the corner from where the rifle was stolen, shows Means, Jr., in a fight with another man. justice.gov

Fewer Cases Increases Contact Tracers' Impact on Virus Transmission
Covid-19 Contact Tracers Race Against Delta Variant in the U.S.

Overwhelmed at pandemic's peak, public-health investigators now aim to reach each new case; 'We want to contain it completely'

Last January 500 positive cases a day had tracers spending only a few minutes with each person.

Now, with just 10 or so new Covid-19 cases coming in each day, the tracing team is aiming to stop the virus in its tracks, the 35-year-old public-health investigator said. She calls every person who is reported as a positive case, as well as their close contacts, and urges them to isolate or quarantine. She also offers help.

As the pandemic slows in the U.S., public-health departments say they are finally able to reach for the traditional goal of contact tracing: stopping new outbreaks.

"We want to contain it completely," said Michael Mendoza, commissioner of the Monroe County Health Department in Rochester, N.Y.

Now, with new cases dropping, public-health officials say they hope to identify all diagnosed or exposed people and coax them to stay away from others. Public-health departments typically use that approach to stop transmission of communicable diseases such as syphilis or measles.

Contact tracing is particularly critical because the highly transmissible Delta variant is expected to become the dominant strain in the U.S. soon, said Crystal Watson, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, who has tracked contact tracing in the U.S. "We can drive down the incidence even further and be more protective of those who haven't been vaccinated in particular," she said.

A survey led by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researchers found that contact tracing wasn't sufficient to reduce transmission of the virus in most communities between June and October 2020, because two out of every three Covid-19 patients weren't reached for an interview, or didn't name any contacts when interviewed.

Fewer cases also allow tracers to identify clusters faster and aggressively manage them immediately. Thereby having an even bigger impact of reducing and even stopping the transmission. wsj.com

Prisoners Released During Pandemic Not Going Back?
Thousands of Prisoners Were Sent Home Because of Covid.
They Don't Want to Go Back.

Criminal justice advocates say the pandemic offers a case study for a different type of punitive system in America, one that relies far less on incarceration.

In the final days of the Trump administration, the Justice Department issued a memo saying inmates whose sentences lasted beyond the "pandemic emergency period" would have to go back to prison. But some lawmakers and criminal justice advocates are urging President Biden to revoke the rule, use his executive power to keep them on home confinement or commute their sentences entirely, arguing that the pandemic offers a glimpse into a different type of punitive system in America, one that relies far less on incarceration.

Mr. Biden has vowed to make overhauling the criminal justice system a crucial part of his presidency, saying his administration could cut the prison population by more than half and expand programs that offered alternatives to detention.

While the White House has yet to announce a decision about those on home confinement, the administration appears to be following the direction of the Trump-era memo.

Andrew Bates, a spokesman for Mr. Biden, said in a statement that the president was "committed to reducing incarceration and helping people re-enter society," but he referred questions about the future of those in home confinement to the Justice Department.

Kristie Breshears, a spokeswoman for the Bureau of Prisons, which is part of the Justice Department, said the bureau would "have the discretion" to allow inmates who were close to the end of their sentences to remain on home confinement even after the national emergency declaration was lifted.

"For the more difficult cases, where inmates still have years left to serve, this will be an issue only after the pandemic is over," she said. "The president recently extended the national emergency and the Department of Health and Human Services has said the public health crisis is likely to last for the rest of the year."

The White House revisits the emergency declaration every three months, leaving the former prisoners in a constant state of limbo. The next deadline is in July.

Return-to-Work Plan - Mistakes Could Cause Mass-Exodus
42% Will Quit if Forced to Return Full Time & 72% Want More Flexibility

America's workers are exhausted and burned out - and some employers are taking notice
As the pandemic recedes, workers are still grappling with 15 months of stress. Some companies are responding by offering more time off.

Employers across the country, from Fortune 500 companies such as PepsiCo and Verizon to boutique advertising firms and nonprofit organizations, are continuing pandemic benefits such as increased paid time off and child- or elder-care benefits as well as embracing flexible work schedules and remote work in recognition that a returning workforce is at high risk of burnout.

About 40 percent of Americans say they felt burned out while working at home this past year, according to a March Ipsos poll. Some 42 percent said they would look for another job if required to return to the office full-time, and 72 percent said they wanted more flexibility regarding going back into work.

That presents a challenge to employers trying to get their workforce to return to offices in person and resume business as usual.

"Expecting people to just 'return to work' does not acknowledge the challenges and difficulties employees endured. Employers can't expect employees to just pretend like we didn't just live through a social catastrophe - especially as that catastrophe continues to unfold around the world," Stanford University sociologist Marianne Cooper said. "Employers need to understand the employees returning to the office are not the same people who left last March."

Any return to the workplace is also likely to affect people differently depending on vaccination status, Cooper said.

For parents who have younger children who are not eligible for vaccines yet, the return to in-person work remains a potentially high-risk activity. For offices that don't mandate vaccinations, there are bound to be tensions between workers who wonder about their colleagues' status and how comfortable they feel about sharing space. Others may be wary of divulging medical conditions that affect their vaccination status with their employers or colleagues. washingtonpost.com

A Return to Masks for All?
Delta variant is forcing officials to rethink Covid measures, even for vaccinated
he more dangerous and more transmissible Delta variant has spread to nearly every state in the US, feeding health experts' concern over potential Covid-19 spikes in the fall.

The variant was first identified in India and is now considered a variant of concern by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, meaning scientists believe it can spread more easily or cause more severe disease.

Already in Los Angeles County, the pace of this variant's spread has motivated officials to reinstate mask guidance for public indoor spaces, regardless of vaccination status.

Calling it a "precautionary measure," the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued the voluntary mask guidance Monday, saying it was necessary until health officials can "better understand how and to who the Delta variant is spreading."

Experts have said that evidence points to vaccines like those from Moderna and Pfizer/BioNTech providing high amounts of protection against the variant, but LA Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer said it is not clear what the future of the variant will be as it becomes more prevalent. cnn.com

Charlotte, N.C.: Indian Motorcycles of Kings Mountain Senior Accountant, CFO, Controller Pleads Guilty to Embezzling More Than $1.2M from Two Former Employers

Hill was previously convicted of stealing more than $800,000 from a third employer

In 2012, Hill, also known as Lisa Rollins-Hill, was convicted of federal wire fraud after she admitted to stealing more than $800,000 from her then-employer, a motorcycle company headquartered in Kings Mountain, N.C. At the time, Hill was ordered to serve a five-month probationary term, three years of supervised release and to pay $807,506.39 in restitution to the victim company.

In July 2020, the U.S. Attorney's Office filed new charges against Hill, for embezzling $22k in a check scheme from a Charlotte-based company where Hill worked as a Controller.

In June 2021, while Hill's criminal charges for the fraudulent check scheme were still pending, a federal bill of information was also filed against Hill, charging her with embezzling more than $550,000 from her latest employer. According to court documents, from May 2020 to January 2021, Hill was employed by Company A as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO). duties included the ability to make payments on behalf of the company. As court documents show, Hill misused her position and access to the company's financial records to make unauthorized payments to herself, including to make transfers from Company A's accounts to pay for Hill's personal expenses.

"The future of drone delivery, we know the sky's the limit."
Walmart Drone Delivery Soars Ahead
Last week, Walmart announced that it has invested in a drone service provider, DroneUp, to further its plans for drone delivery.

To date, to build its drone delivery program, Walmart has applied for patents for new workflows and uses of drone technology, but has not invested in crafting its own UAS or in developing a pilot workforce. By leaving the hardware development and software to others in the industry, such as DroneUp, Walmart is not jumping into a whole new industry, but instead is just expanding its core business of providing products to its customers. This "open source" approach, using DroneUp for service and hardware, will allow Walmart to start its drone delivery at scale quickly (i.e., right now) without sustaining the costs of aircraft development. This means that drone delivery could be very profitable for Walmart. The company plans to open its first drone delivery center at its founding store in Arkansas. jdsupra.com

Supply Chain Snags Putting Damper on Holiday Weekend
A fireworks shortage has prices surging and customers racing to stock up ahead of the Fourth of July weekend

Fireworks are in short supply this year, as high demand meets supply chain snags.

A fireworks shortage has left many customers scrambling ahead of the Fourth of July. One fireworks vendor in South Dakota told News Center that stores have been packed with Americans rushing to stock up while supplies last.

"It was crazy, I mean we had lines all the way around the building," Tom Skoog, the owner of Big Fireworks said. Fireworks are the latest casualty of the supply chain crisis, and vendors say they're struggling to keep the product in stock.

Mark Joseph, a Sparky's Fireworks Outlet owner in Michigan, told local news the company has not been able to replenish its inventory, which usually carries over between seasons, and expects it could take years for vendors to build back. businessinsider.com

LPRC Anti-Sweep Offender Feedback Survey: Tally Smart Shelf

Tally's smart-sensing pad perceived by offenders as 'difficult to defeat'
and a 'highly effective crime prevention technology'

The Loss Prevention Research Council (LPRC) conducted a series of in-person survey interviews in the Gainesville, Florida Innovation Lab in order to better understand the impact of an anti-sweep technology on retail offenders: The Tally Smart Shelf. This research was conducted with several high-loss and ORC (organized retail crime) vulnerable items: Tide detergent, Similac infant formula, and Red Bull energy drinks. The LPRC collected data from 10 active shoplifting offenders. This report details the results of these surveys.

Summary of Key Findings - 'See It, Get It, Fear It'

While only 20% of offenders (2 people) were aware of the Smart Shelf before being prompted, 100% were deterred by it to some degree, with 50% reporting that they'd steal fewer items, and 50% reporting that they'd avoid theft from the device altogether (see Table 1).

The Tally Smart Shelf

The Tally Smart Shelf is a smart-sensing pad that communicates with the Tally platform to give instant alerts as product is removed from the shelves. There are three main benefits as advertised by Tally Retail Solutions:

  • The Smart Shelf is designed to act as a deterrent to offenders without restricting access to honest customers. If too much product is taken at one time, a series of customizable alerts can triggered, such as audible store pages, emails, and text messages. The Smart Shelf also takes live video of the incident for review.

  • The Smart Shelf can also help track inventory and give alerts when products are running low, out-of-stock, or when items need to be shifted forward on the shelves.

  • Since there are no additional tags or fixtures on the products themselves, the Smart Shelf does not add additional work to store employees. Once installed, the Tally software detects the presence of an item and gives automatic, real-time alerts.

The Great Debate

Cyber Insurance & Ransomware Payments

Fueling the Flames or Forcing it Underground?
Or Mandatory Reporting & Go after the Gangs

What's your opinion? It's time to make it known as an industry!
One thing for sure - It's out of control & Putin isn't going to stop it.

Here's the Proof.

Cyber insurance isn't helping with cybersecurity, and it might be making the ransomware crisis worse, say researchers
Ransomware is one of the biggest cybersecurity issues facing organisations today but as claims mount and cyber insurers look at the coverage they are offering, changes may be coming.

Some critics argue that insurance encourages ransomware victims to simply pay the ransom demand which will then be covered by the insurers, rather than have adequate security to deter hackers in the first place. Insurers argue that it's the customer that makes any decision to pay the ransom, not the insurer.

According to a research paper examining cyber insurance and the cybersecurity challenge by defence think tank Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), this practice isn't just encouraging cyber criminals, it's also not sustainable for the cyber insurance industry, which warns ransomware has become an existential threat for some insurers.

"Cyber insurers may be unintentionally facilitating the behaviour of cybercriminals by contributing to the growth of targeted ransomware operations."

"There are widespread concerns that insurers are fuelling ransomware attacks by paying ransom demands. Paying ransoms is not currently illegal, and it is often cheaper to pay off extortionists than it is to rebuild IT infrastructure or cover losses from business interruption," says the paper.

Refusing to pay the ransom can lead to months of downtime and the huge costs for organisations that attempt to restore their network from scratch - and according to RUSI, some ransomware victims and their insurers will pay the ransom because they see it as the lowest cost option for restoring networks. zdnet.com

Four states propose laws to ban ransomware payments
Some state legislatures are debating bills that could limit or ban ransom payments. A better option, experts say, is mandatory reporting of ransomware attacks.

So far, four states have five pending pieces of legislation that would either ban paying a ransom or substantially restrict paying it. In New York, Senate Bill S6806A "prohibits governmental entities, business entities, and health care entities from paying a ransom in the event of a cyber incident or a cyber ransom or ransomware attack."

New York stands alone in terms of barring private sector businesses from paying a ransom. Legislatures in North Carolina (House Bill 813), Pennsylvania (Senate Bill 726), and Texas (House Bill 3892) are all considering bills that would prohibit the use of state and local taxpayer money or other public money to pay a ransom payment. This public money prohibition would likely hamstring local governments from paying off ransomware attackers.

Banning ransom payments could hurt more than help

These bills are understandable reactions to the frightening shut-down of both Colonial Pipeline and JBS in the wake of their high-profile infections. But legislation banning ransom payments would likely cause more harm than good, industry experts say, particularly given the short response windows and complexity of most ransomware attacks.

The harm from banning ransom payments is particularly true given the growing sophistication of ransomware attackers, who often lurk in networks for weeks, mapping out the organization, stealing data to hold hostage in a second ransom demand, and possibly wiping out system backups. "If attackers are successful and they are able to remove backups, then sometimes the only way to get that data back is to pay the ransom," Hudak says.

An outright ban on ransom payments "would mean that many businesses tempted to pay the ransom may be less likely to disclose a breach, which would impact both our understanding of the latest ransomware threats and leave customers of impacted businesses in the dark," Kujawa says.

Mandatory ransomware attack reporting a better alternative

A better alternative to banning ransom payments is requiring companies to report ransomware attacks to a central authority, as most of the state bills also do. "We've clearly seen that a more effective strategy against ransomware is for everyone to share their attack data and use that information to empower our investigative services to go after the criminals, not the victims," Malwarebytes Kujawa says.

Coveware's Siegel says that "the United States should do something at the federal level to require reporting and to require some subset of information to be collected. It is a very good idea because there could be a centralized repository for mandatory notification and coordination of what to do with the active attacks, whether it be law enforcement investigation, aggregation of data, to put out notices, whatever." csoonline.com

Putin Agrees, Cybersecurity is 1 of the most important issues
6/13/21: Putin: Russia open to hacker exchange with US
Moscow could hand over wanted hackers to Washington if the United States extradites its own cybercriminals to Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Sunday.

He made the comments ahead of an expected extradition request by US President Joe Biden when the pair meet in Geneva on Wednesday.

In an interview on state TV, Putin stressed that cybersecurity was one of the most important issues at present, because "turning all kinds of systems off can lead to really difficult consequences."

"If we agree to extradite criminals, then, of course, Russia will go for it. But only if the other side, in this case, the United States, agrees to the same thing,″ Putin said.

Cybercrime is one of the main threats to the business community leading to losses of $1 trillion in 2020, according to a report by leading antivirus company McAfee. dw.com

Editor's Note: We haven't heard a word since Biden met with Putin. Not a word. Strange - but no follow up.

Washington Post 6/12/21: The Red Line - Blaming the West For Russia's Woes
Ransomware's suspected Russian roots point to a long detente between the Kremlin & Hackers
MOSCOW - The ransomware hackers suspected of targeting Colonial Pipeline and other businesses around the world have a strict set of rules.

First and foremost: Don't target Russia or friendly states. It's even hard-wired into the malware, including coding to prevent hacks on Moscow's ally Syria, according to cybersecurity experts who have analyzed the malware's digital fingerprints.

"In the West you say, 'Don't ... where you eat,' " said Dmitry Smilyanets, a former Russia-based hacker who is now an intelligence analyst at Recorded Future, a cybersecurity company with offices in Washington and other cities around the world. "It's a red line."

Here's the Proof:

In a 2016 interview with NBC, when asked why Russia was not arresting hackers believed to have interfered in the U.S. election, Putin hinted at the hands-off approach: "If they did not break Russian law, there is nothing to prosecute them for in Russia."

Andrei Soldatov, a Russian Internet analyst and author of "The Red Web: The Struggle Between Russia's Digital Dictators and the New Online Revolutionaries," said an entire generation of Russia's skilled hackers grew up in the '90s and blamed the West for Russia's hardships after the Soviet Union unraveled.

For cybercriminals, the country is like a greenhouse, he said. Ransomware is the region's specialty, analysts said. With ransomware-as-a-service outfits, DarkSide and REvil, flourishing.

In an interview with the Russian OSINT blog posted June 4 on the Telegram messaging app, REvil said "Even if they pass a law prohibiting the ransom payments in the United States or put us on a terrorist list, this will not affect our work in any way." washingtonpost.com

Antony Blinken Warns Russia 'We Will Respond' If Cyber Attacks Continue
Secretary of State Antony Blinken has vowed a U.S. response would follow if Moscow targeted the U.S. with a cyber attack, as he reiterated his administration's concern about hacker threats as a major issue of national security.

Blinken told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica that cyber hacking had been discussed during this month's summit between the U.S. President Joe Biden and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The interview was published Tuesday after he visited Rome for talks about the global Islamist threat. In it, the Secretary of State referred to the attack on the Colonial Pipeline on the U.S. East Coast, which the FBI has linked to DarkSide, a ransomware gang believed to be based in Russia, although not thought to be state-sponsored.

"We expect Russia to take action to prevent these cyber attacks from happening again," Blinken told the paper, according to a translation.

Blinken said that there were areas of national infrastructures of strategic interest that should be off limits, such as water, electricity and public transport, and these "must be protected from cyber attacks. We have made this clear to Putin."

He said that as Biden had previously told Putin, the U.S. hopes to have a "more stable and profitable relationship" with Russia which includes co-operation on strategic issues such as arms control, cyber security, and regional crises.

"If Russia continues to attack us, or to act as it did with the SolarWinds attacks, the intrusions into our elections, and the aggression against Navalny, then we will respond," he said, according to Reuters.

In a lengthy article for the newspaper Kommersant, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said the Biden-Putin summit had been "generally constructive" and said an "understanding" had been reached on issues including "consultations on cybersecurity."  newsweek.com

Amazon Employs Over 23,000 in Canada & Adding Another 2,800
Amazon to open new warehouse that will use robotics in Alberta next year
Despite the warehouse's use of robots, Amazon said it will hire more than 1,000 full- and part-time staff to work at the facility, which is expected to open next year.

The Seattle-based e-commerce company said Monday that it will use robotics to put together small orders of books, electronics and toys at a new warehouse in Parkland County, Alta., west of Edmonton.

Earlier this month, Amazon said it employed more than 23,000 full- and part-time people at fulfilment centres, corporate offices and other facilities in British Columbia, Ontario, Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec.

It planned to hire 1,800 workers in corporate and technical roles, including many in Vancouver and Toronto. The new hires, it said, will support team working on Amazon Web Services, Alexa, advertising and retail and operations technology. bnnbloomberg.ca

'Another sucker ordering stuff on Amazon'
A video of a UPS driver railing against Amazon deliveries showed the tech giant's impact on the entire courier system

A TikTok showed a UPS driver unhappy with the number of Amazon packages a customer had ordered.

A TikTok showing a UPS delivery driver unhappy with the number of Amazon packages he had to deliver to a customer went viral on Wednesday before it was deleted.

"This is absolutely ridiculous. Another sucker ordering stuff on Amazon," the driver could be heard saying to himself as he carried a large Amazon box to the front door. "'I got this great deal here on Amazon. I need to buy 16 million things because Amazon told me to.'"

"We appreciate our employees' hard work," a UPS spokesperson told Insider in a statement. "But these comments do not reflect our commitment to exceptional customer service."

Lorelai Mentzer, who captured the moment on her Ring doorbell, usually makes TikToks about her dog to send to friends and family. She said she had no idea how viral the video - which had 219,200 views in just one day - would become.

"My initial reaction was that my feelings were hurt," Mentzer told Insider. "I was a little embarrassed by the number of packages I had and thought to myself, did I really need all those? Am I a bad person for ordering this many packages?"  businessinsider.com

Victoria's Secret Conn./Mass. ORC Gang
Originally Indicted on Oct 22,2020

Indictment Charges 7 Hartford Women for Participating in Victoria's Secret Theft Scheme
Federal grand jury in Hartford has returned an indictment charging DEBRAN MOORE, also known as Debran Chanel, 21; SHAMONIQUE MACKEY, 21; DAIJAH FAGAN, 20; TAMIJAH HUNTER, 21; SHARNICE JACKSON, 19; LEONNA JONES, 21; and IMANI AITCHESON, 21, all of Hartford, with conspiracy and fraud offenses related to a scheme to defraud Victoria's Secret stores in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Beginning at least as early as February 2019 and continuing through at least October 2019, the co-conspirators devised a scheme through which they stole thousands of dollars from L Brands, the parent company of Victoria's Secret stores. As part of the scheme, the co-conspirators shoplifted merchandise from Victoria's Secret stores in Connecticut and Massachusetts. They then returned the shoplifted Victoria's Secret merchandise through a "No Original Receipt" return, which allowed them to obtain gift cards for Victoria's Secret in the value of the stolen merchandise (the "Return Step").

It is alleged that the loss to L Brands from this scheme exceeds $100,000. The indictment charges each defendant with one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, and one count of wire fraud. Both charges carry a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years each. justice.gov

Update 6/22/21: Sixth Individual Admits Participation in Multi-State Victoria's Secret ORC Theft Scheme
SHARNICE JACKSON, 20, of Hartford, pleaded guilty today to a conspiracy offense related to a scheme to defraud Victoria's Secret stores in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Jackson and others were involved in a scheme through which they stole thousands of dollars from L Brands, the parent company of Victoria's Secret stores. As part of the scheme, the co-conspirators shoplifted merchandise from Victoria's Secret stores in Connecticut and Massachusetts. They then returned the shoplifted Victoria's Secret merchandise through a "No Original Receipt" return, which allowed them to obtain gift cards for Victoria's Secret in the value of the stolen merchandise (the "Return Step"). The co-conspirators then redeemed the gift cards at Victoria's Secret stores for merchandise that slightly exceeded the value of the gift card, so that the excess amount was charged to a debit card connected to a co-conspirator (the "Redeem Step"). They then returned the merchandise purchased in the Redeem Step, with the refund for the entire amount credited to the co-conspirator's debit card (the "Refund Step").

Jackson is the sixth defendant involved in this scheme to plead guilty. SHAMONIQUE MACKEY, 22; DAIJAH FAGAN, 21; TAMIJAH HUNTER, 21; LEONNA JONES, 22; and IMANI AITCHESON, 21, all of Hartford, previously pleaded guilty to the same charge and await sentencing. A seventh defendant charged in this conspiracy is awaiting trial.

Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud, an offense that carries a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years. Judge Hall scheduled sentencing for September 17, 2021. justice.gov

Whyte is alleged on Nov. 8 and 11, 2019, to have posted on the Internet photographs of himself and Robinson along with substantial amounts of cash.
