Mass Killing Happen in Small Towns & Rural Settings Too
Mass killings database reveals trends & details in every US event since 2006

High profile public shootings in the US are only a portion of the country's mass killings AP, USA TODAY and Northeastern University analysis shows.

Mass killings aren't confined to big cities. They take place across the country in towns of all sizes. Homicides with fewer than four victims are more common in larger cities, but mass killings with higher death tolls often take place in smaller towns or rural settings. usatoday.com

Serial Convenience Store Robbery Suspects Arrested
Federal violent crime crackdown in Minnesota

Operations in the Twin Cities and Rochester produced dozens of arrests last week.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Luger said Friday, The operations, which included help from a national team of federal tactical responders, marked the latest chapter in Luger's new violent crime strategy launched in May and added 25 people to the growing tally of those arrested and facing serious federal prison time.

The special response teams, a tactical group, travel to high-crime areas to help arrest those deemed to present the highest risk of violence.

Luger said Friday that his office has charged about 35 "high-risk" offenders in recent weeks with crimes ranging from serial convenience store robbery, carjacking, illegal firearms possession and other gang-related activities.

Other recent cases include new charges against four men accused of targeting Uber and Lyft ride share drivers with carjacking while violently forcing the drivers to turn over access to mobile banking apps. startribune.com

Cleaning up the Tenderloin in San Francisco
Calif. Gov Newsom Vetoed SB57 Supervised Drug Sites
Which would have established safe drug consumption site pilot programs in San Francisco, Oakland and Los Angeles. Signing the bill would have allowed for the creation of sanctioned indoor spaces where people could safely use drugs, access medical care and be connected to substance use treatment programs.

Editor's Note: Last month San Francisco's Mayor announced they're closing the 'safe injection site' in the Tenderloin Dec. 31st after businesses complained. And in June the Mayor revealed next years budget which significantly increases police coverage and expands the community ambassadors program specifically in the Tenderloin.

He said it is "imperative" the cameras are utilized per policy and in accordance with Texas law "while in an on-duty capacity and off-duty employment as well." dallasnews.com

Here's the Fuel Behind Skyrocketing ORC
Mexican and Chinese fentanyl cartels driving biggest money laundering scheme in history
On Sunday, as the nation marks National Fentanyl Prevention & Awareness Day, it's worth noting that last year alone more than 100,000 Americans died in drug-related deaths, the vast majority from pills cooked with fentanyl, an opioid analogue 50 times stronger than heroin.

Mexican cartels, particularly the Sinaloa and Jalisco ones, have partnered with the Chinese Triads in shipping fentanyl precursors from China to Mexico, where the deadly substance is manufactured, frequently with the help of Chinese chemists. Fentanyl-laced pills (everything from counterfeit oxycodone to Aleve) and drugs like heroin and methamphetamine get secreted into the United States and Canada to be distributed on the street.

Then the funds get laundered. One of the largest money-laundering schemes involves students from China here on education visas. Per the DEA, thousands of students pick up the drug money; they bring Samsonites of cash to Chinese money brokers who operate out of restaurants, travel agencies and other storefronts.

As Drug Enforcement Administrator Anne Milgram explains, "Drug cartels in Mexico are mass-producing fentanyl and methamphetamine largely sourced from chemicals in China, and they're distributing these substances throughout the United States. We are finding these deadly drugs in every state; in cities, suburbs, rural areas and local communities spanning the country."

The scale and scope of the laundering activity inside our borders is huge, constituting the largest money-laundering scheme in world history

China is engaged in a reverse Opium War against the West, with its top target US society. Defeating the Chinese in that war won't be easy, but it's far better to try than to do nothing serious and accept the deaths of 100,000 kids every year. nypost.com

COVID Face Coverings Driving Organized Shoplifting Surge?
Clothing store Kitson bans face masks after spike in theft
Los Angeles clothing store chain Kitson said it is banning customers from wearing face masks after a series of shoplifting incidents by thieves in disguise.

Shoppers at the brand's Beverly Hills location are prohibited from wearing face coverings under the new mandate so employees can "see the faces of the criminals," according to a post on Kitson's Instagram account. A sign in the store's window announces that "Due to the safety of our staff & assets of the store, we do not allow the wearing of face masks."

Kitson said it implemented the new policy after noticing "a disturbing trend of individuals wearing masks to avoid identification in various situations including, but not limited to, shoplifting, verbal harassment, and physical assault."

In announcing the new store rule, Kitson also took aim at Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, California Governor Gavin Newsom and Los Angeles County District Attorney George Gascón, who have encouraged mask wearing.

"Eric Garcetti, Gavin Newsom, and Gascon are clueless what obstacles businesses have to overcome to protect their staff and assets of their business," the company said. Kitson said it will accommodate private shopping for customers who don't feel comfortable not wearing masks.

The pandemic has led to an uptick in organized shoplifting, according to retail security experts. Some retailers have even hired extra security to protect against criminals. Pharmacy chains have taken steps to protect merchandise as well, with some locking up valuable, or likely to be stolen goods - including inexpensive tins of Spam. cbsnews.com

Employer Inspections in the Remote Work Era
DHS Proposal Could Pave The Way For Permanent I-9 Remote Virtual Inspection
A new rule proposed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would permit the Secretary of Homeland Security to authorize alternative procedures for inspecting identity and work authorization documents required by Form I-9 for some or all employers. If adopted, employers will be provided with other temporary or permanent options to complete Form I-9 in addition to the in-person document inspection requirements. As a result, employers may be able to continue utilizing the remote virtual inspection process implemented by DHS towards the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

As a result, employers, on a case-by-case basis, are permitted to inspect a new hire's employment authorization documents remotely by virtual means. Previously, those documents would have been physically inspected in person. Virtual inspection includes review via video call, web-based video conferencing, fax, and email. Employment authorization documents must be virtually obtained and inspected within three days of the new hire's first date of employment. DHS's temporary policy permitting remote virtual flexibility is currently set to expire on October 31, 2022, at which point employers must correct any I-9s completed virtually based on the current guidance. forbes.com

Updated Boosters Coming After Labor Day
Biden Administration Plans for New Booster Campaign Soon After Labor Day
The Biden administration plans to offer the next generation of coronavirus booster shots to Americans 12 and older soon after Labor Day, a campaign that federal officials hope will reduce deaths from Covid-19 and protect against an expected winter surge.

Dr. Peter Marks, the top vaccine regulator for the Food and Drug Administration, said in an interview on Tuesday that his team was close to authorizing updated doses that would target the versions of the virus now circulating.

Even though those formulations have not been tested in humans, he said, the agency has "extremely good" data showing that the shots are safe and will be effective. "How confident am I?" he said. "I'm extremely confident." nytimes.com

The Global Face Biometrics Deployment
Face biometrics deployed for everything from store payments to World Cup security
Idemia software and hardware will be used in a Chilean law enforcement system that includes face, fingerprint and palm, and the FIFA World Cup is contracting multiple live facial recognition vendors, none of whom have been publicly named. We have a few guesses on that. SmilePay's retail payments system has been deployed at a pair of supermarket chains, and Facewatch's CEO says critics are confused about how the company's facial recognition systems work.

SmilePay's facial recognition is being deployed for payments by a pair of supermarkets in its home country of Azerbaijan. The Mastercard partner has also recently picked up an undisclosed investment from a local bank, and is looking to bring its biometric retail payment technology to various verticals as an SaaS or PaaS offering.

World Cup 2022 in Qatar will be watched over by 15,000 cameras integrated with live facial recognition to spot terrorists and other threats. The algorithm provider is not known, but a source tells Biometric Update it is a multi-vendor system. Registration for the fan access card also seems to involve biometric identity verification.

BioCatch Director of Fraud Strategy for North America Raj Dasgupta reveals behavioral anomalies that can reveal fraud attempts in an interview with Biometric Update, and including those detected with its age analysis capability. He discusses regulation as a driver of behavioral biometrics adoption and covers several different types of attacks.

Facewatch CEO Nick Fisher tells Biometric Update that contrary to claims from Big Brother Watch, the data of UK shoppers is not stored for two years when they visit one of the retailers that uses its facial recognition system. Stores also cannot share data with each other, Fisher says, and the solution complies with data minimization and proportionality. biometricupdate.com

Changes in Gun Laws Affect the Workplace
Given all the recent changes, employers may wish to review their policies and consider whether changes or additions are needed. The key is to strike a balance between upholding individuals' gun rights and protecting the safety of all employees and customers.

"As laws restricting gun possession are now more suspect, more of the burden on regulating firearms may fall on employers."

Federal Law

Employers have a legal duty to keep employees safe at work. Under the federal Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act), employers can be held liable for gun-related injuries or fatalities at the workplace. In addition, employers must pay workers' compensation claims for workers injured by gun violence at the workplace.

"Employers are responsible under the OSH Act to furnish a place of employment free from recognized hazards that could cause death or serious physical harm to its employees, and OSHA [the Occupational Safety and Health Administration] has stated that this duty requires employers to protect against the threat of workplace violence," Gartenberg said.

Employers usually can prohibit employees from taking guns into the workplace. The Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution does not give individuals the right to carry a gun into a private business. shrm.org

Increased Risk in Retailers' Parking Lots
Retailers Scrambling to Stow Inventories Are Turning to Transport Equipment
Companies flush with inventories and straining for warehouse space are increasingly turning to ad hoc arrangements that include storing goods in parking lots and on truck trailers as they cope with an ongoing disconnect between supply and demand.

The overflow strategy is the latest sign of how retailers and manufacturers are continuing to reset their distribution operations on the fly to keep supply chains running amid disruption in transportation networks and difficulties in forecasting demand.

But shipping experts say the practice of keeping goods on transport equipment adds to broader strains in already-stressed supply chains because it ties up shipping containers, truck trailers and the truck frames needed to keep goods moving. One freight broker's revenue from providing drop trailers was up 849% in the first half. wsj.com

Motivating Gen Z & Young Millennials to Get Engaged
If Your Co-Workers Are 'Quiet Quitting,' Here's What That Means

Some Gen Z professionals are saying no to hustle culture; 'I'm not going to go extra'

Not taking your job too seriously has a new name: quiet quitting.

The phrase is generating millions of views on TikTok as some young professionals reject the idea of going above and beyond in their careers, labeling their lesser enthusiasm a form of "quitting." It isn't about getting off the company payroll, these employees say. In fact, the idea is to stay on it-but focus your time on the things you do outside of the office.

The videos range from sincere ruminations on work-life balance to snarky jokes. Some set firm boundaries against overtime in favor of family. Others advocate coasting from 9-to-5, doing just enough to get by. Many want to untether their careers from their identities.

Many people who say, when they're young, that they don't care about climbing the corporate ladder end up changing their minds.

Across generations, U.S. employee engagement is falling, according to survey data from Gallup, but Gen Z and younger millennials, born in 1989 and after, reported the lowest engagement of all during the first quarter at 31%.

Jim Harter, chief scientist for Gallup's said a large group of survey respondents that he classifies as "not engaged" (quiet quitters)-those who will show up to work and do the minimum required but not much else. More than half of workers surveyed by Gallup who were born after 1989-54%-fall into this category.

Many of today's less-invested employees have been able to skate by thanks to remote work, said Elise Freedman, partner at consulting firm Korn Ferry. wsj.com

Historic Flooding Wreaks Havoc on Businesses
A day after North Texas' record-breaking flood, officials, business and residents survey the damage

Up to 15 inches of rain fell on some parts of the Dallas area Monday, leading to swamped roads, submerged cars, power outages and at least one death.

A day after a record-breaking rainstorm, North Texas residents recounted what the flood left in its wake: boxes of keepsakes destroyed, piles of books soiled, businesses closed for cleanup and never-to-forget tales of fleeing their homes in waist-deep water.

At restaurants and bars in Deep Ellum, downtown and East Dallas, some of the areas hit hardest, owners described inches of rain, dirt and leaves wreaking havoc on their businesses.

What's hurting the local business the most is two days without any sales, Rennhack said, adding the store will reopen Wednesday. dallasnews.com

A Compliance Perspective
A national data privacy law might arrive sooner than expected

It's called ADPPA, and we should hope it passes

For those of us waiting for a national data privacy law - and those numbers might be rising - there's good news. The U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee recently amended and passed HR 8152, the American Data Privacy and Protection Act (ADPPA). This legislation has already made it further than any other federal privacy law and faster than many expected.

Now comes the hard part.

The ADPPA would govern how organizations across all industries treat consumer data, specifically information that can be used to identify individual citizens. It would create a comprehensive federal privacy framework to protect personally identifiable information (PII) from misuse, increase data security requirements, and give consumers more say about how their PII is collected, handled, sold and disposed of. If it passes, enforcement would be handled by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and, in civil actions, by state Attorney Generals.

So what's the problem? Well, some provisions might become giant obstacles.

The Rise of Ransomware-as-a-Service
Cyber Signals: Defend against the new ransomware landscape
In this edition, we pull back the curtain on the evolving cybercrime economy and the rise of Ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS). Instead of relying on what cybercriminals say about themselves through extortion attempts, forum posts, or chat leaks, Microsoft threat intelligence gives us visibility into threat actors' actions.

AdvertisementRaaS is often an arrangement between an operator, who develops and maintains the malware and attack infrastructure necessary to power extortion operations, and "affiliates" who sign on to deploy the ransomware payload against targets. Affiliates purchase initial access from brokers or hit lists of vulnerable organizations, such as those with exposed credentials or already having malware footholds on their networks. Cybercriminals then use these footholds as a launchpad to deploy a ransomware payload against targets.

The impact of RaaS dramatically lowers the barrier to entry for attackers, obfuscating those behind initial access brokering, infrastructure, and ransoming. Because RaaS actors sell their expertise to anyone willing to pay, budding cybercriminals without the technical prowess required to use backdoors or invent their own tools can simply access a victim by using ready-made penetration testing and system administrator applications to perform attacks.

The endless list of stolen credentials available online means that without basic defenses like multifactor authentication (MFA), organizations are at a disadvantage in combating ransomware's infiltration routes before the malware deployment stage. Once it's widely known among cybercriminals that access to your network is for sale, RaaS threat actors can create a commoditized attack chain, allowing themselves and others to profit from your vulnerabilities.

While many organizations consider it too costly to implement enhanced security protocols, security hardening actually saves money. Not only will your systems become more secure, but your organization will spend less on security costs and less time responding to threats, leaving more time to focus on incoming incidents. microsoft.com

90% of Cyberattacks Carried Out via Email
Top 8 Threats to Email Security for Large Enterprises
Every year, we experience an increase in email security threats. Phishing, whaling, malware, and other attacks are becoming an issue for many large companies. The cybersecurity industry has to deal with this challenge since email is the primeform of communication in many industries.

According to a security report issued by Ironscales, nearly 90% of all cyberattacks are carried out by email. Software protection isn't enough. Your company also requires the best practices for business email security and comprehensive training. A multi-layered security plan can mitigate email security risks, but a deep understanding of these threats works much better in the long run. securityboulevard.com

As a result, Axis provided video surveillance and audio technology, as well as 2N audio/video intercoms - all streaming to an AI-enabled video management system. Together, they created an integrated surveillance solution, customizable access control through a mobile app, and analytics designed to reduce shrink, streamline inventory management, analyze point-of-sale data, and optimize each store's product mix for maximum sell-through.

"As we enter a new era of streamlined retail experiences, investing in state-of-the-art, integrated solutions is key to providing dynamic levels of safety and security, while bolstering overall business intelligence," Keith D'sa, country manager, Axis Communications, said in the announcement. "With the confluence of applications and uses that today's security technology provides, our goal is to keep customers and assets secure, while also allowing Aisle 24 to leverage data to inform day-to-day and long-term business strategies."

Currently, Aisle 24 has 16 locations in Ontario and Quebec, with plans to launch at least 40 more stores in Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, and Halifax by the end of the year. In the future, Aisle 24 plans to continue expanding its 24/7, cashierless grocery stores across Canada, as well as the United States, South America, and parts of Europe and Asia. vendingmarketwatch.com

COVID Update

Canadian Security Guard Used eBay to Sell Empty Vaccine Vials
Surrey, BC: Security guard stole empty vaccine vials to sell on eBay
Steven Flint stole a large quantity of empty Covid-19 vaccine vials during 13 shifts working as a security guard at the vaccination sites. The man has been sentenced for stealing the empty Covid-19 vaccine vials to sell on eBay.

Flint, 34, carried out the thefts at the peak of the national vaccination rollout in January and February last year. He was caught by investigators who used Post Office CCTV and eBay account details to link him to his crimes. Flint was sentenced to a year's jail, suspended for 18 months.

He was arrested at one of the vaccination sites in February last year, having completed a total of 13 shifts, a spokesperson for Surrey Police said. Investigators found Flint, of Bidhams Crescent, Tadworth, Surrey, used details of an acquaintance fraudulently when setting up new eBay accounts.

When police searched his house, they found empty vaccine vials and receipts for packages posted to buyers. He was found guilty of theft at Staines Magistrates' Court, having previously pleaded guilty to fraud by false representation. privateofficerbreakingnews.blogspot.com

Canada's Remote Work Shift
24% of Canadians shifting to remote working amid pandemic's latest wave: report
The percentage of Canadians working from home increased slightly amid a seventh wave of the coronavirus pandemic, according to a report by Statistics Canada. In July, the percentage of workers aged 15 to 69 who worked most of their hours at home edged up 0.4 per cent to 24.2 per cent. Alongside short-term shifts in work location, many employers have continued to implement a longer-term transition toward hybrid work arrangements in recent months, with employees working some hours at home and some hours in a location other than home.

The percentage of employees who usually work some hours at home and some hours at another location also increased by 1.2 per cent to slightly more than seven per cent. Overall, the percentage of employees with hybrid work arrangements has more than doubled since January, when 3.3 per cent of employees reported a hybrid arrangement.

With working from home now more common in certain parts of the labour market, some employers and employees may be more able to adapt to changing public health conditions by temporarily increasing the amount of time worked from home, noted the report. benefitscanada.com

Canada's Crackdown on Gun Violence
Canada's Liberals Bypass Parliament for Gun Ban
CBC news reports that the federal government in Canada is "fast-track[ing] a ban on the import of handguns into the country without the approval of Parliament using a regulatory measure that comes into effect" on August 19, to "last until a permanent freeze is passed in Parliament and comes into force." A government press release indicates that the "temporary" ban "will help bring the ultimate impact of the national handgun freeze into force sooner," despite the fact that Bill C-21 has not been enacted.

Foreign Affairs Minister Mélanie Joly advised that she has the authority to deny any export or import permit application based on national security concerns. Referring to Marco Mendicino, the minister of public safety, she said, "we came up with this idea of creating this new system of requiring permits, but meanwhile, we will deny any permits from any commercial entity or people wanting to bring handguns to Canada... So this is how creatively we've worked..."

As nearly all handguns in Canada are imported, the real reason for this unilateral executive action is to preemptively stamp out individual handgun sales while they are still legal. One source indicates that "licensed firearm users bought almost 90,000 handguns in the seven weeks after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he's killing the legal market, a shopping spree that set records," and that by the first week of August, the total is likely to top 100,000 new sales. On August 5, a tweet by Ms. Joly on the intent of the "temporary" import ban couldn't be clearer: "This will prevent shelves from being restocked, slowing the run on handguns to keep our communities safer." ammoland.com

Will Canada's Gun Crackdown Actually Reduce Crime?
Op-Ed: Canada's Handgun Ban Doesn't Do Anything to Stop Crime
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced a unilateral ban on the import of handguns into Canada, freezing out Canadians that follow the law and purchase handguns legally. Nothing in the measure, though, actually addresses criminals or the illegal networks that smuggle ill-gotten firearms into Canada and perpetuate crime there.

The fact is, the United States government ensures that handgun exports to Canada are for legitimate sales. U.S. exports to Canada are vetted by the U.S. Commerce Department and approved Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) with end-user checks.

That means if the recipient of the exported handguns isn't a legitimate and lawful business, the exports aren't approved to leave the United States. Criminals aren't importing handguns from U.S. manufacturers. Criminal networks are obtaining them illegally. NSSF, as the firearm and ammunition trade association, wants these illegal networks stopped.

Banning all imports of handguns to Canada doesn't solve the crime problems north of the border. It only deprives those who can legally purchase a handgun from the ability to do so. It starves Canadians of the ability to protect themselves and doesn't stop criminals from victimizing the innocent. nssf.org

Digital Signage Spanning 69 Malls with 700+ Million Shoppers Across Canada
State-of-the-Art Digital Signage to be Installed in Primaris REIT Shopping Centres
Cineplex Digital Media (CDM), a division of Cineplex, is teaming up with Primaris REIT to develop, install and maintain a state-of-the-art digital signage network in 19 shopping centres across Canada including Dufferin Mall in Toronto and Orchard Park in Kelowna.

As part of the partnership, CDM will operate a network of nearly 70 digital displays at 19 Primaris owned and managed retail properties in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, and New Brunswick. Each property will receive a custom display solution consisting of large double-sided portrait screens for media advertising, mall directories, and maps. The new network of digital displays is expected to be fully deployed nationally this fall.

Fab Stanghieri, Executive Vice-President and Managing Director, Media, for Cineplex, said CDM has been a trusted mall network partner for over a decade and by adding 19 additional properties to its robust digital signage network, it now has access to at least 60 per cent of the Canadian shopping audience.

"This deal enables not only our media partner's audience reach to even more of Canada's mall consumers, but it also gives CDM the opportunity to support Primaris' ongoing commitment to providing exceptional and innovative shopping experiences for their guests," he said.

With the addition of Primaris REIT, CDM's mall network spans across 69 centres with over 700 million yearly visitors. In addition to its robust mall network, CDM's digital signage business also designs digital in-store experience solutions for a variety of clients which include Grocery, Retail, Multi-Brand Retail, Financial Banking and QSR industries, added Stanghieri. retail-insider.com

Drug Store Shooting Leaves Man in Critical Condition
Toronto, ON: Man in his 60s in life-threatening condition after being shot during robbery attempt
A man in his 60s is in life-threatening condition after he was shot during an attempted robbery at a store in Scarborough, Toronto police say.

GTA Jewelry Spree Puts Stores on Alert
Mississauga, ON: Daytime robbery puts jewellers on high alert
A string of jewellery store robberies has ignited the need for increased vigilance in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).

Most recently, Peel Police are on the hunt for three suspects following an armed robbery, which took place at a Mississauga, Ont., shopping centre on Aug. 10 around 1 p.m. The masked suspects entered a jewellery retail store, smashed several showcases, and escaped with an unknown quantity of jewellery. One suspect was armed with a firearm, which was used to threaten staff. There are no reports of injuries.

In recent months, CJB Insurance Services has released reports of numerous violent crimes occurring at jewellery stores in Mississauga, Newmarket, Stouffville, Etobicoke, and other Ontario cities. Several incidents took place within shopping centres.

While the exact connection between the crimes remains unclear, CJB says jewellers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) should be on high alert. jewellerybusiness.com

Big Brother Amazon is Watching
As Amazon grows, so does its eye on consumers

Amazon has said it will spend billions of dollars in two gigantic acquisitions that, if approved, will broaden its ever growing presence in the lives of consumers.

From what you buy online, to how you remember tasks, to when you monitor your doorstep, Amazon is seemingly everywhere.

And it appears the company doesn't want to halt its reach anytime soon. In recent weeks, Amazon has said it will spend billions of dollars in two gigantic acquisitions that, if approved, will broaden its ever growing presence in the lives of consumers.

This time, the company is targeting two areas: health care, through its $3.9 billion buyout of the primary care company One Medical, and the "smart home," where it plans to expand its already mighty presence through a $1.7 billion merger with iRobot, the maker of the popular robotic Roomba vacuum.

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a company known for its vast collection of consumer information, both mergers have heightened enduring privacy concerns about how Amazon gathers data and what it does with it. The latest line of Roombas, for example, employ sensors that map and remember a home's floor plan.

"It's acquiring this vast set of data that Roomba collects about people's homes," said Ron Knox, an Amazon critic who works for the anti-monopoly group Institute for Local Self-Reliance. "Its obvious intent, through all the other products that it sells to consumers, is to be in your home. (And) along with the privacy issues come the antitrust issues, because it's buying market share."

Amazon's reach goes well beyond that. Some estimates show the retail giant controls roughly 38% of the U.S. e-commerce market, allowing it to gather granular data about the shopping preferences of millions of Americans and more worldwide. Meanwhile, its Echo devices, which house the voice assistant Alexa, have dominated the U.S. smart speaker market, accounting for roughly 70% of sales, according to estimates by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners. tampabay.com

Amazon Preps for Pre-Holiday Prime Day-Like Event
Amazon Adds Revenue Streams as Holiday Season Approaches
Amazon.com Inc. is adding revenue streams ahead of the holiday season to help it counter inflationary pressures and other rising costs and as it recalibrates following a pandemic boom.

The company is passing on some costs to the sellers that use its e-commerce platform and plans to hold a second deals event for Prime members after having completed its annual Prime Day shopping extravaganza in July.

The company indicated that it plans to host a second Prime Day-like event for the first time ever during the fourth quarter. This summer, Amazon notified some sellers of an event scheduled for the final three months of the year and asked them to submit deals for the event by July 22. The company said the event would be a "Prime-exclusive shopping event" in the fall. wsj.com

Chino, CA: 3 Pomona men arrested in connection to Chino cargo theft ring
Three Pomona men were arrested last week for their connections to an alleged cargo theft ring, according to the Chino Police Department. Jose Portillo, 40, Luis Garcia, 38, and Daniel Altamirano, 24, were arrested on Aug. 17 and booked on burglary charges. Chino Police say that the three were at least partially responsible for a string of nighttime cargo thefts in Chino and surrounding towns that resulted in more than $250,000 in merchandise being stolen. Earlier this month, investigators conducted surveillance in the 700 block of Cameo Court in Pomona and identified a Pomona home where they believed the stolen items were being fenced. Based off that, officers served warrants at homes in the 700 block of Cameo Court and the 2500 block of Catalpa Place. Police searched those homes and three vehicles, and found that officers called "truckloads of stolen property" including clothes, car parts and electric scooters and bikes. The service of those warrants led investigators to Portillo, Garcia and Altamirano, who were subsequently arrested. The three were booked for burglary charges. foxla.com

Petaluma, CA: Petaluma, Santa Rosa Ulta stores robbed, security guards assaulted; 5 arrested after ramming police car
Five suspects were arrested on Monday on suspicion of robbing two Ulta Beauty stores of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise and leading law enforcement on a vehicle and foot chase, the Petaluma Police Department said. Petaluma Police received a call at 7:02 p.m. on Monday regarding a robbery at the Ulta Beauty store at 401 Kenilworth Dr. Officers learned that five suspects had entered the store and filled large bags with fragrances. When store security attempted to intervene, they were allegedly assaulted by one of the suspects. The suspects fled the store with the merchandise and got into a newer white Range Rover with tinted windows, police said. The vehicle was not located but a broadcast went out to local law enforcement.

At 7:26 p.m., an Ulta Beauty store in Santa Rosa reported a similar robbery at its 2080 Santa Rosa Ave location. During the robbery, a suspect allegedly punched and threatened the security guard. Police say that the thieves fled in the same vehicle described in the previous robbery; the Range Rover had the wrong plates on it and was stolen, police said. A Santa Rosa police officer spotted the Range Rover traveling southbound on Interstate Highway 101 and the California Highway Patrol followed the vehicle as it entered the Petaluma city limits. CHP attempted to make a traffic stop but the Range Rover failed to yield, the agency said. The vehicle took the Lakewood offramp and Petaluma Police entered the pursuit to assist. cbsnews.com

"This is one of the longest and most brazen shoplifting sprees I have ever seen," said St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Wesley Bell. In March, a group of bold shoplifters stole $50,000 in perfume and other merchandise from an Ulta Beauty store in Chesterfield. Sgt. Robert Powell with the Chesterfield Police Department said more brazen shoplifters like these are part of a national trend. "Unfortunately we're seeing more of it," he said.  kmov.com

Update: Portland, OR: Security Guard Shoots Pallet Collector Dead in Lowe's Parking Lot
Body camera footage from a Portland, Oregon, security guard who is facing second-degree murder charges from a shooting incident in May 2021 has reignited debates over whether the shooting was justified. According to The Oregonian, 29-year-old Logan Gimbel worked for Cornerstone Security Group. The group had been in a dispute with 49-year-old Freddy Nelson, who was allegedly collecting wooden pallets, so he could resell them. In the body camera footage from a Lowe's parking lot, Gimbel could be heard repeatedly telling Nelson to leave the property. "You know you've been trespassed," Gimbel said. "You know you're not supposed to be here." When Freddy Nelson and his wife Kari Nelson did not leave, Gimbel sprayed pepper spray into the vehicle. Kari Nelson began screaming at Gimbel and hurling expletives at him. Freddy Nelson then quickly drove his vehicle forward in the direction of Gimbel, at which point tensions rose even higher. Gimbel had his gun drawn at this point in the video, and Freddy Nelson showed him a middle finger as Gimbel told him to get out of the car. "You move this vehicle again, I will fire," Gimbel said. Nelson again drove towards Gimbel, and Gimbel stayed true to his word. He fired four shots at Nelson that clearly wounded him significantly. WARNING: The video contains graphic images and vulgar language that some viewers may find offensive westernjournal.com

Robberies, Incidents & Thefts

Update: Lebec, CA: Brink's driver was asleep inside vehicle during multimillion-dollar jewelry heist
When thieves broke into a Brink's tractor-trailer and stole millions of dollars of jewelry in a late-night heist at an Interstate 5 truck stop last month, one of the drivers was asleep in the vehicle's sleeping berth, the company says. That revelation was disclosed in a lawsuit filed by Brink's against 13 jewelers whose wares the company was transporting from San Mateo to the L.A. area for the International Gem and Jewelry Show. Brink's alleged that the driver "did not see or hear anything unusual" during a 27-minute period in which the trailer's plastic seal was removed and its rear lock "cut away." At the time, the big rig's other armed driver was inside the truck stop getting food, the company alleged. In all, 22 large bags of gems, gold and other valuables were taken in the July 11 incident at the Flying J Travel Center in Lebec. news.yahoo.com

Houston, TX: Small Business Owner tracks down shoplifter, publicly confronts her on a Bus
Video has gone viral on social media of a Houston, TX small business owner who took action after being alerted that someone was stealing from her business. The owner ended up tracking down the shoplifter to a bus where she confronted her face to face. Small business owner Sophia Milan operates Erotic Cabaret Boutique in the Montrose area of Houston, TX and, as this story will show you, cares a lot about the store. The business owner's latest TikTok shows how she recently handled a shoplifting situation in a bold way.
The story goes that Milan was hanging out with her parents when she was alerted by her employees that someone was shoplifting. They had surveillance footage that seemingly confirmed the suspicion, so the owner jumped into action. The business owner ended up finding the alleged shoplifter on a public bus where a confrontation ensued. The alleged shoplifter was clearly uncomfortable with the camera on her, as the business owner boldly called out the actions. She even went through the alleged shoplifter's bag and found some of her merchandise. Eventually, the TikTok shifts to a moment off of the bus where the alleged shoplifter was seemingly being arrested by Houston police officers. 1079ishot.com

Interesting how the social dynamics of a small industry mirror, somewhat, the same social dynamics of a family, with the holidays and conferences almost being one in the same, where we're excited to visit with old friends and colleagues, yet cautious about the battle lines business and careers at times necessitate or cause. At the end of the day, it's all about doing what's right for the industry, adding value, helping people, and continuing to help evolve the industry. And while each executive has their individual agendas, it's important to remember that we are all part of one industry and we all share one goal - to guide, nurture, and evolve it.
