The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Target Slowly Backs Away from Crime-Fighting Police Partnerships
How Target Got Cozy With the Cops, Turning Black Neighbors Into Suspects

For years, America's most upbeat retailer funded surveillance to make inner cities safe-for some. Now it's trying to convince people of color that it's changed.

Four days after George Floyd's death, as the East Lake Street store lay in ruins and the damage at nine other Targets in the Twin Cities area was still being assessed, Brian Cornell, Target's chairman and chief executive officer, issued a statement saying his team had "wept" that not enough was changing in the face of Floyd's murder and other recent killings of Black Americans. "As a team we've vowed to face pain with purpose," wrote Cornell, who's led Target since 2014.

Target acted decisively. It rescued a job-training nonprofit in a poor Black neighborhood from collapse. It pledged to spend $2 billion by 2025 to help Black-owned businesses nationally. It announced $10 million in donations to Black civil rights groups and recovery efforts around the country. It funded a $700,000 awards program, administered by the U.S. Conference of Mayors, for cities undertaking initiatives related to racial justice and police reform.

Beneath the gleam and the paint, tensions linger. A lot of U.S. companies are evaluating their relationships with the Black community, but Target is grappling with a particularly raw set of challenges, especially in its hometown of Minneapolis.

For decades, Target fostered partnerships with law enforcement unlike those of any other U.S. corporation. It became one of the most influential corporate donors to law enforcement agencies and police foundations, supplying money for cutting-edge technology and equipment. When it developed a network of forensics labs, it made them available to police across the U.S. Starting in the early 2000s, Target developed a program, called Safe City, that poured money into police and sheriff's departments to install neighborhood surveillance systems and fund equipment.

In Minneapolis, Target worked with the City Attorney's Office to have petty criminals banished from the downtown business district through what are called geographic restriction orders. Eight out of 10 people expelled were Black or American Indian, according to an analysis of city data. In an article last summer, Aren Aizura, a professor who teaches courses on race and gender at the University of Minnesota, wrote that Target's deep ties to the police made the company "an appropriate outlet for rage."

Target's law enforcement partnerships were once a matter of singular pride for the company. But as cities began confronting glaring racial disparities in policing practices, and amid the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, the company began quietly backing away from its public-safety programs. It stopped funding Safe City in 2015, and last year, five days after Floyd's death, scrubbed its "community & store safety" webpage of any mention of the trademarked name it had used to promote its law enforcement initiatives for the past 25 years: Target & Blue.

Tony Heredia, Target's vice president for compliance, ethics, and corporate security, says that ending Safe City funding had nothing to do with race but was prompted by internal assessments that showed the program wasn't meeting Target's goal, as well as other considerations.

Criminal Justice Reform & Retail Crime
Has the Criminal Justice Pendulum Swung Too Far?

'No bail' laws reward criminals and punish law-abiding citizens

Like everything else in California, the attitude of elected officials and Hollywood elites has put the right of the criminals above the victim's rights. The laws have been changed to protect the criminal, not the victims and people that live in tough neighborhoods.

Specifically, there has been a massive pendulum shift in the past twenty years that reduced drug crimes and turned felonies into misdemeanors. California's criminals got lobbyists, they got a sympathetic ear from the Hollywood elite and the mega-wealthy, and they got access to power through California's ruling political party

Over the past twenty years, California Democrats in the state legislature have passed legislation under the banner of criminal justice reform. This has led to the misclassification of violent felonies, the early releases of convicted criminals, and the rise in crime and serial retail theft.

In 2014, Proposition 47, called the Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act, was sponsored and supported by Gavin Newsom, Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón, labor unions, Brad Pitt, Tim Robbins, Demi Moore, and a host of other elites. Prop. 47 lowered the charges and penalties for certain offenses, including reducing specific nonviolent property and drug crimes from felonies to misdemeanors.

Two years later, many of the same people who sponsored and supported Prop. 47, introduced and passed Proposition 57, called the Parole for the Nonviolent Criminals. Prop. 57 "increased parole and good behavior opportunities for felons convicted of nonviolent crimes."

California's crime problems are not limited to Prop. 47 and Prop. 57. They are just two small, but significant examples of how criminal justice reform has gone dangerously wrong.

New York got rid of bail and now California is trying to do the same with Senate Bill 262. With the rise in crime, homicides, and the constant shoplifting videos, we can't help but wonder if the pendulum has already swung too far left, and a correction is on the way. californiaglobe.com

Bringing Down Crime & Rebuilding Trust in Police
Police heavyweight William Bratton reflects on this moment in policing
For Bratton, a useful shorthand for that goal is Sir Robert Peel's nine principles of policing, the first of which states, "The basic mission for which the police exist is to prevent crime and disorder."

Broken Windows and CompStat led to crime reduction

It was Bratton who introduced the practice of Broken Windows policing to New York's transit system in the early 1990s when he was chief of the New York City Transit Police - a strategy he says, along with his push to arm transit police with better guns and communications systems, resulted in a drastic drop in subway crime overall. The strategy called for cracking down on panhandlers, street prostitutes, disorderly conduct and public drinking.

At the core of both Broken Windows and CompStat, Bratton says, was Peel's mission for police: prevent crime and disorder. And by that measure, Bratton was successful. "From 1990, the height of New York's violent crime, through 1996, after CompStat and Broken Windows made their first, dramatic impact, New York's overall crime fell 46 percent," Bratton writes.

Rooting out racism, brutality in the police force

In addition to bringing CompStat to L.A., telling police under his command that racism and brutality would lead to termination, and making a concerted effort to diversify the force, Bratton worked to build relationships with communities of color.

Anticipating resistance from the rank and file, he rolled out the policy with the assistance of command staff and, through training, tried to pitch the change internally in terms of its benefit to officers. Bratton says police got on board, and the Black community noticed. Bratton says police got on board, and the Black community noticed.

Fostering the public's trust in police

Bratton calls distrust of police an epidemic. As ever, Bratton has faith in technology's ability to help. He advocates for more widespread use of body cameras, and "a 'color-blind' algorithm system" that would determine whether releasing a suspect was safe based on their arrest history.

He would convene the best minds in academia and policing for a new Policing Commission, something he characterized as an expansion of President Barack Obama's 21st Century Policing program. capecodtimes.com

Commissioner Bratton spoke to the LP community at the D&D Daily's
'Live in NYC at the NRF Big Show' event in 2016.

New White House Office for Gun Violence?
Activists urge Biden to bypass Congress and create office on gun violence

Survivors and advocates say they are frustrated that Biden has failed to deliver on his campaign promises to try to curb gun violence.

With Joe Biden's nominee to lead the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lacking any viable path to confirmation, gun violence survivors and activists are pushing the president to create a White House office of gun violence headed by a Cabinet-level aide.

In a letter sent to Biden Wednesday, four advocacy groups complained that his actions on guns "fall significantly short of the promises you yourself made while running for the presidency" and have not been a priority as 28,000 Americans died from gun violence this year.

"Your administration is hard at work pursuing important priorities from infrastructure reform to reducing the disastrous impacts of climate change," according to the letter obtained by POLITICO. "But with rising gun deaths and the heightened threat of armed political extremism, gun violence can no longer be seen as a back burner issue."

Against the backdrop of David Chipman's nomination to lead ATF languishing in the Senate, the groups asked Biden to establish a White House office to be led by an aide who does not need Senate confirmation, similar to Biden's White House Office of Domestic Climate Policy. They also called on Biden to use his political capital to urge lawmakers to pass gun laws and the bully pulpit to sell Americans on reforms. politico.com

Cities Across U.S. Debate Policing Policies
As Violent Crimes Increase In Some City Neighborhoods, Residents
Debate Officer Visibility
Some residents believe more police officers are needed to address crime. Some activists, however, say the city would be better off with fewer police - and a year and a half into the pandemic, its disruptive effects could make their wish a reality.

City crime statistics show that, from January to June of this year, the number of violent crimes such as homicide or assault increased by nearly 6% over the first half of last year. This year's violent crime rate is still lower than it was between 2016 and 2020.

The increase in crime should give people pause before they talk about defunding the police or reducing officers in Black neighborhoods, Homewood resident Zinna Scott said. Scott, president of the Zone Five Public Safety Council, said she believes the presence of police curbs violence. wesa.fm

COVID Hot Spots Remain Concentrated in the South

COVID Hospitalizations Higher than Last Year
With more than 100,000 people in the hospital with Covid-19 in the US, this August is worse than last, expert says
More than 100,000 people are currently hospitalized with Covid-19 in the United States, according to data from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). That number puts the US in a worse place than August of last year.

There were 100,317 people hospitalized with the virus Wednesday -- more than double the 48,851 in the hospital on the same day last year. Covid-19 hospitalizations have been on the rise in the US for about seven weeks -- since early July. They've nearly tripled in the past month and have grown by 10% in the past week alone.

With 48.3% of the US still not fully vaccinated, cases are on the rise once again, and with them has come strain on hospitals struggling to treat the wave of incoming patients. cnn.com

Companies Continue to Unveil New Vax Mandates & Rules
Get Shots or Get Out, U.S. Employers Are Telling Workers

Delta Air Lines to charge unvaccinated employees $200 monthly

Vaccine mandates are beginning a march across the U.S., constricting the places that people who have shunned the shots can work, shop and play.

A day after the federal Food and Drug Administration approved the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine, institutions central to their regions announced tougher -- perhaps bellwether -- rules. In New York, a city driven by finance, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. required bankers to prove they'd been vaccinated. In football-crazed Baton Rouge, Louisiana State University will demand vaccines or negative Covid tests to see a game at Tiger Stadium, capacity 102,000. bloomberg.com

Vaccine Mandate Resignations
Manhattan restaurant owner says about 20% of staff will resign over NYC's vaccine mandate

Some staff at an NYC restaurant say they'll quit if they have to get vaccinated

A fifth of staff at a burger restaurant in downtown Manhattan have said they'll quit if they have to get the COVID-19 vaccine as part of New York City's vaccine mandate, according to the restaurant's owner.

Art Depole, who co-owns the Mooyah Burgers, Fries, and Shake restaurant in Times Square, told Insider that about a third of his 30 staff haven't got the jab yet - and that some don't plan to get it.

New York City is requiring restaurant workers to provide proof of at least one COVID-19 shot. The mandate is already in place, but the city won't start enforcing it until September 13. Depole said some staff will leave their jobs at Mooyah, which has restaurants in 24 states, rather than get a shot.

"The majority are willing to comply, but there is a significant number, maybe 20 to 25%, who are willing to leave this industry if they're forced to comply when the compliance is not required in other industries," he said.

The mandate covers staff in gyms, restaurants, and entertainment venues, but not workers in the retail industry. businessinsider.com

Businesses Suffer from Online 'Review Bombings' Over Vax Rules
Yelp Reviews Fuel Fights Over Covid-19 Vaccine Requirements

"People were calling us Nazis ... Saying that we supported the devil because we wanted proof of vaccination."

In early August, Yelp Inc. added features allowing businesses to list their vaccine policies on their pages. There are two new settings: A business can indicate if its staff is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 and if it requires patrons to provide proof of vaccination; users can filter their search results based on those options.

The change has thrust Yelp-and the small businesses listed on its pages-into the broader debate over vaccine requirements. The San Francisco company has beefed up moderation to manage what it calls "review bombings," instances where public attention to a business results in an influx of negative reviews from users who aren't necessarily customers.

Yelp anticipated that adding vaccination information could lead to more review bombing incidents. The company said it would proactively monitor the pages of businesses that chose to disclose their vaccine policies, read new reviews before they are published and remove those that violate its terms of service. As of Aug. 23, more than 26,000 listings had added at least one of the vaccine badges on Yelp since they were announced on Aug. 5, the company said. So far, 45 reviews have been taken down through proactive moderation. wsj.com

Texas Bans Vaccine Mandates
Abbott bans vaccine mandates in Texas, regardless of FDA approval status
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott on Wednesday reissued his ban on Covid vaccine mandates by any state or local government entity, just days after Pfizer's shot was granted full approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The executive order comes after the governor, who is recovering from his own case of Covid, touted the vaccine as the reason for his "brief & mild" infection.

The Pfizer news on Monday raised questions about the validity of Abbott's previous executive order banning vaccines under emergency use authorization, but the governor's latest order bans Covid vaccine mandates regardless of approval status. Abbott's order allows for exceptions for nursing homes and other long-term care facilities. politico.com

COVID-19 Underscored the Importance of Security & Safety
How shaping the future of business starts with security and safety
Two priorities are front of mind for businesses as they continue to adapt their reopening plans: protecting the health and safety of their people and identifying operational efficiencies that can drive cost savings.

Historically, these two objectives have existed independently, often being managed by different departments within a business. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the convergence of business priorities, and an unlikely industry has emerged as a potential solution for both.

Using Smart Technology to Reduce Costs

The economic impact of the pandemic has affected each business differently, and many are delivering results above expectations. Smart investments such as increased digitization and careful control of costs have enabled leaders to pivot and grow their businesses in 2021. For growth to continue in 2022 and beyond, however, companies will need to uncover even more efficiencies.

Take automatic exterior doors, for example. Every hour a large door is held open at a facility, such as a retail store, it costs the business on average $17 per hour in energy expenses. In the case that a door malfunctions, it's critical for a business to have reliable solutions to quickly assess and fix the problem so that business can resume and cost implications can be minimized.

Enhancing Health and Hygiene for Employees and Customers

The pandemic has increased public consciousness of the risk of spreading germs and has highlighted opportunities for businesses to improve the health and safety of those who enter their facilities. One key area of focus is eliminating unnecessary contact with high-touch surfaces, such as doors.

Automated interior doors are particularly important, as researchers at the University of Arizona found that traces of a simulated virus that were placed on doorknobs were picked up by 40%-60% of workers and visitors within two to four hours.

This has resulted in many businesses converting manual doors to touchless automatic doors to eliminate the need for contact with door handles, bars, and plates.  securitymagazine.com

The Debate Over Post-COVID Remote Work Continues

Employees Prefer Big Pay Cut Over Post-Pandemic Return to Office
Go back to the office? Some workers would rather sacrifice half their pay - and their holidays

A survey of 3,500 workers found that some employees would sacrifice up to 50% of their salary, alongside other benefits, in return for continued WFH options.

Employees have strong feelings about returning to the office, to the extent that a new survey suggests many workers would rather sacrifice a portion of their salary or give up paid holidays if it meant they never had to set foot there again.

A survey of 3,500 US workers commissioned by GoodHire, an employment screening service provider, found that more than two-thirds (68%) would choose remote working over working from an office -- a sentiment that has been echoed thoroughly by white-collar workers who have enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of working from home during the pandemic.

So hesitant are employees to return to the office, in fact, that 61% of those surveyed said they would be willing to take a pay cut in exchange for being able to work from home permanently. Some even suggested they'd sacrifice up to 50% of their current wage to do so.

Most respondents weren't willing to take such a big cut to carry on working from home: the most common response was a 10% reduction in salary.

Yet salaries weren't the only thing employees were willing to sacrifice in return for remote working: 70% of respondents said they would give up benefits including health, dental or visual insurance, paid time off, gym memberships, and retirement benefits and accounts, including their 401k. zdnet.com

Offices Shut Down But Productivity Went Up
Why Companies Should Let Employees Work From Home Permanently, According To One Remote Worker
Productivity - one of managers' biggest concerns for remote work - went up when offices shut down. And without the stress of commuting, happiness also increased among employees, the personal finance columnist says.

Progressive, competitive employers see a future in remote work, she says. Singletary supports a flexible hybrid model where employees can choose to work from home full-time, part-time or not at all.

Singletary received pushback on her column about permanent remote work: Readers voiced concerns about creativity, opportunities to talk to colleagues and employees telling employers what to do.

But much like people who rejected cars in favor of traveling on horse and buggy, she believes folks who refuse to accept remote work will get left behind. wbur.org

4,713 Store Closures So Far in 2021
More Retail Workers Are Quitting Than Ever, But More Stores Are Opening
Than Expected
In June alone, 632,000 workers quit retail jobs. In fact, for most of the year, every month, roughly 4% of the retail workforce has quit - part of a nationwide wave of workers reconsidering their careers post-pandemic.

Supermarket and service station employees were among the lowest-paid workers to be declared essential during the pandemic, often taking on the dangerous task of policing mask-wearing by customers. Angry shoppers have assaulted and even killed workers. Tens of thousands got sick with COVID-19 and dozens died.

But retail stores are also hiring at a record pace. In June, the retail industry had an eye-popping number of 1.1 million job openings - after more than 1.1 million workers got hired in a remarkable hiring spree.

Historically, when workers quit retail jobs, they frequently do so to take another retail job, according to labor experts and pre-pandemic surveys. Now, some workers might be jumping ship from one store to a different store to take advantage of extra bonuses and perks.

Plus, more new stores are opening than expected. Leading the pack are dollar-store chains, along with others including Foot Locker, Aldi, Burlington, Tractor Supply and Bath & Body Works, according to Coresight Research, which tracks store announcements and has counted 4,713 store closures and 4,602 store openings so far this year. Despite the devastation of the pandemic, openings actually outpaced closures for part of the year.

In fact, the pandemic upheaval created some new opportunities. Enough retailers were going out of business that landlords got more accommodating, offering new tenants discounts on rent or early exit options if shoppers did not return. npr.org

Updated: FEMA's National Risk Index
Discover the landscape of natural hazard risk in the United States
Last week, FEMA announced the full application launch of the National Risk Index, an online application powered by Esri's ArcGIS that visually identifies traits of the communities most at risk to natural hazards.

Initially launched in November 2020, the Index now includes capabilities for more customization and reporting, including community risk profiles and risk comparison reports for every county or Census tract, as well as several data updates, and access to more information about the development of the Index. Users are able to share reports through unique links, save them as printable PDFs, and extract the underlying data in spatial or tabular formats.

The National Risk Index is based on data from the best available resources from 2014 through 2019. Routine updates are expected to keep ratings current. The Index is intended to help users better understand natural hazard risk and support informed risk reduction - decisions for planning and emergency management. govtech.com

Dollar General & Dollar Tree Sales Boost
Dollar Stores Will See Sales Boost Due to Biden's Food-Benefit Hike

People receiving the benefits are the primary target of dollar stores such as Dollar General.

US dollar stores including Dollar General and Family Dollar are likely to see a sales and earnings boost from the Biden administration's plan to hike food stamp benefits.

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) said last week that as part of a plan to promote a more nutritious diet among Americans, it is raising average Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits by more than 25% versus pre-pandemic levels.

In a $1 trillion food-at-home industry, the additional payout is expected to potentially add about $6 billion of increased funding to shoppers' wallets starting in October, analysts at Evercore said.

Dollar stores count on low-income shoppers, and welfare checks tend to drive sales. In the pandemic, sales have skyrocketed with the help of shoppers benefiting from stimulus money, food stamps, child tax credits, and higher wages in a tight labor market. businessinsider.com

Solution to Supply Chain Crisis?
Extra-long trucks could help solve a massive driver shortage and related supply chain problems, an expert says

The government is testing longer trucks that can carry more goods and cut down on journeys.

Extra-long trucks could help solve supply chain issues during a driver shortage in the UK, an expert says. These trucks, which are being tested by the UK's Department for Transport, are two meters longer than standard, which means they can carry more goods and therefore cut down on the number of journeys required.

They could appear on UK roads as soon as next year, according to a report from The Telegraph. According to the Associated Press, citing numbers from the Road Haulage Association (RHA), the UK is currently short 100,000 drivers. Restrictions during the pandemic meant many candidates were unable to take the necessary driving tests, AP reported. businessinsider.com

White House Cybersecurity Summit
Biden tells top CEOs at White House summit to step up on cybersecurity

'You have the power, capacity and responsibility, I believe, to raise the bar,' president tells chiefs of Apple, Google, JPMorgan Chase, others

President Biden
called on the leaders of companies including Apple, Google and JPMorgan Chase to do more to respond to cybersecurity threats during a summit Wednesday at the White House.

"The reality is most of our critical infrastructure is owned and operated by the private sector, and
the federal government can't meet this challenge alone," Biden said in his remarks before the summit. "You have the power, capacity and responsibility, I believe, to raise the bar on cybersecurity. Ultimately we've got a lot of work to do."

These challenges are compounded, Biden added, by
the shortage of cybersecurity professionals. The White House estimates that roughly half a million cybersecurity jobs remain open, amid an onslaught of cyberattacks.

While an unusually public and ambitious gathering, the meeting was part of a broader Biden administration
effort to prioritize cyberattacks as a national security and economic threat. The administration announced that it would work with industry to develop new guidelines to help companies and government agencies build secure technology and assess the security of existing technology. Microsoft and Google, as well as insurance providers Travelers and Coalition, committed to participate in this initiative, according to a White House news release.

We are in a cyberwar," Partovi said. "Nobody's declared war, but attacks are happening everyday. I felt optimistic that the set of folks who came together have a commitment to work together, whether it's with government or their competitors.

Apple CEO Tim Cook, IBM CEO Arvind Krishna and Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and parent company Alphabet, sat to Biden's right as he addressed the executives, who were seated around a square table in the White House East Room. Amazon CEO Andy Jassy and chief executives from major banks and insurance, energy and water companies were in attendance, according to a list provided by the White House.washingtonpost.com

21-Year-Old Hacker Takes Credit for T-Mobile Hack
T-Mobile Hacker Who Stole Data on 50M Customers: 'Their Security Is Awful'

A 21-year-old American said he used an unprotected router to access millions of customer records in the mobile carrier's latest breach

The hacker who is taking responsibility for breaking into T-Mobile US Inc.'s systems said
the wireless company's lax security eased his path into a cache of records with personal details on more than 50 million people and counting.

John Binns, a 21-year-old American who moved to Turkey a few years ago, told The Wall Street Journal he was behind the security breach. Mr. Binns, who since 2017 has used several online aliases, communicated with the Journal in Telegram messages from an account that discussed details of the hack before they were widely known.

The August intrusion was
the latest in a string of high-profile breaches at U.S. companies that have allowed thieves to walk away with troves of personal details on consumers. A booming industry of cybersecurity consultants, software suppliers and incident-response teams have so far failed to turn the tide against hackers and identity thieves who fuel their businesses by tapping these deep reservoirs of stolen corporate data.

The breach is
the third major customer data leak that T-Mobile has disclosed in the past two years. The Bellevue, Wash., company is the second-largest U.S. mobile carrier with roughly 90 million cellphones connecting to its networks.

The Seattle office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the T-Mobile hack, according to a person familiar with the matter. "The FBI is aware of the incident and does not have any additional information at this time," the Seattle office said in a statement Wednesday.

In messages with the Journal, Mr. Binns said
he managed to pierce T-Mobile's defenses after discovering in July an unprotected router exposed on the internet. He said he had been scanning T-Mobile's known internet addresses for weak spots using a simple tool available to the public.

young hacker said he did it to gain attention. "Generating noise was one goal," he wrote. He declined to say whether he had sold any of the stolen data or whether he was paid to breach T-Mobile. wsj.com

Cybersecurity Amid the Remote Work Explosion
Hybrid work: How do you secure every identity on your network?
As organizations around the world continue optimizing their hybrid work environments,
many are struggling to stay productive without compromising on security.

Remote or hybrid working environments aren't new, nor is using contractors to rapidly and flexibly add capability. What we've witnessed post pandemic is
an acceleration of existing social, technological and digital transformations resulting in years' worth of change delivered in weeks or months.

In the name of business continuity organisations have been forced to react rapidly,
without proper planning, to ensure survival. In many cases this has generated technical and security debt which needs to be resolved before organisations can properly plan for their future.

Just as organisations and their
security teams understand the increasing importance of identity in a remote or hybrid world, so do criminals. Targeted attacks to steal, manipulate or impersonate identities are increasing and this trend will continue. Securing every identity online may remain an aspirational goal, but by collectively investing enough in basic protections against credential-based attacks we can make these classes of attack less efficient or profitable.

Organisations have made progress securing their workforces and customers online.
Identity-first security is a requirement for success in the post-pandemic world. Likewise governments are collectively moving towards modernising and securing citizen identities at a reasonable pace, within national boundaries (or within the EU for example).

If regulatory authorities can align on global norms in terms of data privacy expectations and know-your-customer requirements for social media, cryptocurrency, cross border and cyberspace transactions, the world would be a simpler and safer place.
Like all good change, this will take time - and regulatory controls remain just one piece of a much larger puzzle. helpnetsecurity.com

Cannabis Businesses Move Away from Cash to Reduce Security Risks
Reducing Security Risks with Non-Cash Cannabis Transactions
Despite a predominately cashless society,
the cannabis industry still primarily operates using cash transactions. This is due to cannabis' status as a federally illegal narcotic and leads to banking challenges for cannabis businesses. Although most cannabis transactions are completed using cash, there are alternative methods for non-cash cannabis transactions that are increasing in availability and popularity.

Non-Cash Cannabis Transactions and Security
There are a number of reasons why cannabis businesses are beginning to prefer payment methods other than cash. Any business that frequently deals in cash must store this large amount of currency on-site before it can be deposited into a financial institution.
This can expose businesses to increased risk of robberies, burglaries, and internal theft. By accepting non-cash cannabis transactions, cannabis businesses can reduce the amount of cash on-site and decrease the associated risks. Additionally, accepting non-cash payments not only serves to reduce security risks, but can also increase efficiency.

Secure Methods of Non-Cash Cannabis Transactions
Although the most popular forms of payment, credit and debit cards, are not typically accepted by cannabis businesses, there are currently several ways that cannabis businesses handle non-cash transactions.
The most efficient and secure way in which companies can collect money from customers is by using a cashless ATM. A cashless ATM functions similarly to that of a normal ATM, but instead of dispensing cash, it transfers funds from the customer's account to the cannabis business' account electronically. In order to ensure that the cashless ATM is used as safely and securely as possible, the system should be integrated with the dispensary point-of-sale system and should be under video surveillance at all times.

The Future of Non-Cash Cannabis Transactions
Despite the limitations of current non-cash cannabis transactions, there are clear benefits to offering cashless payments and this method of transaction will likely continue to grow in popularity. The emergence of COVID 19 has also served as a catalyst for companies to move away from cash transactions.
Many cannabis businesses have recently begun to offer forms of non-cash cannabis transactions as a way to reduce contact between employees and customers. sapphirerisk.com

Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act
Congressman Urges Passage Of Marijuana Banking Bill While Broader
Reform Is Considered
It's been
four months since the U.S. House of Representatives again approved a bipartisan bill to protect banks that work with state-legal marijuana businesses-but companion legislation has stalled in the Senate, and the House sponsor is getting impatient.

While Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-CO) says he appreciates that Senate leadership is pushing for a more comprehensive end to federal marijuana prohibition, and he agrees that promoting social equity is an important objective, he feels the
Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act is urgently needed to address public safety issues resulting from the industry's lack of access to traditional financial institutions.

What's more, the banking bill stands a significantly higher chance of passing in the Senate specifically because of its narrow focus. To that end, Perlmutter argues that an incremental approach to reform is better than nothing, and
the SAFE Banking Act should get a Senate vote without further delay. marijuanamoment.net

The Battle for E-Commerce Dominance Heats Up
Amazon Vs. Walmart: The Epic Battle Of Retail Kings Gets Hot
The two-decade war of Amazon vs. Walmart just heated up, with no end in sight. And
the fight for retail and e-commerce dominance holds big stakes for both Amazon stock and Walmart stock.

Amazon plans to build its first large-format retail stores, according to the Wall Street Journal. The stores would represent Amazon's latest foray into physical retail outlets and step up its game against Walmart.

Amazon's 30,000-square-foot stores, which will debut in California and Ohio, are less than one-third the size of Walmart's conventional outlets. They're about one-sixth the size of Walmart Supercenter stores. But Amazon makes a critical foray into enemy territory with its move. And the plan comes at a time when it's starting to overtake Walmart.

According to data compiled by FactSet and reported by the New York Times on Tuesday,
Amazon's sales, and those of third-party sellers on its platform, eclipsed Walmart's over the year ended in June. Consumers spent $610 billion at Amazon from June 2020 to June 2021. In that same period, shoppers spent $566 billion at Walmart, the report said.

"It's noteworthy because what it shows is that growth in the digital space has been huge," said Bill Bishop, who uses the title of chief architect at Brick Meets Click, a research firm focused on the retail grocery market. investors.com

Working Alongside Amazon Robots
Amazon offering $3,000 signing bonuses to attract 500 new workers to Delaware warehouse where employees will work alongside robots

Staff at the warehouse, which hasn't yet opened, will work with robots to pack and ship small items.

An Amazon warehouse in Delaware is offering hefty signing bonuses in an effort
to attract hundreds of new workers.

The facility in Wilmington will give incoming workers
$3,000 bonuses, Delaware Online reports. The maximum hourly pay for a team member at the warehouse is $19.75, according to a job posting. At this rate, the bonus is equivalent to nearly one month's worth of pay based on a 40-hour work week.

The job posting says new employees are eligible for the signing bonus if they work their first day before October 10. It also says the incentive only applies to certain positions and shifts, and workers must still be employed at the warehouse at the time the bonus is paid out. The sum will be paid in installments.

Besides the $3,000 signing bonus,
new hires can also get a $100 bonus on their first day for showing proof that they are vaccinated against COVID-19. The job posting says the warehouse is hiring for overnight, early morning, day, evening, and weekend shifts.  businessinsider.com

Miami Man Pleads Guilty in Million $$ Fraud Scheme involving Cell Phones
PITTSBURGH - A resident of Miami, Florida, pleaded guilty in federal court to charges of conspiring to commit wire fraud and money laundering. Samuel T. Johnson pleaded guilty to two counts.

In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that over the course of two years Johnson was able to
fraudulently obtain in excess of 1,500 new, in-box cellular devices and resell them on the illicit market. Through various means, Johnson was able to compromise existing Verizon accounts and charge the devices to them. Afterwards, arrangements were made to have the purloined devices shipped to various Apple Stores and other third-party vendors. Johnson and others would then retrieve the devices from the vendors and resell them. In order to conceal the illicit source of the money Johnson made from selling the devices, he and others engaged in currency structuring. When Johnson's apartment was searched, federal agents recovered $619,184.00 in cash and over 50 pieces of jewelry and high-end wristwatches. Under the terms of his plea agreement, Johnson agreed to forfeit a Lamborghini Urus; $619,184.00; and 60 pieces of gold and diamond jewelry.

The law provides for a total sentence of 40 years in prison, a fine of $$750,000, or both. justice.gov

Hit Walmart, Best Buy and Other Retailers
Raleigh Man Gets 36 Months for Bank Fraud and Identity Theft
He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $158,866.00. Oris Eugene Ford pled guilty to the charges.

According to court documents and other information presented in court, from October 2013 to March 2016, Ford, 42, and others executed bank fraud schemes involving the use of stolen identities to open new bank and credit card accounts, or to take over existing accounts, and then make fraudulent purchases or cash withdrawal from those accounts.

The first scheme involved the use of
stolen Personally Identifiable Information (PII) to apply for new credit card accounts with Citibank. Credit cards were issued in the names of the actual victims, but with Ford listed as an authorized user. A similar scheme perpetrated against Discover involved account takeover fraud. Common to both schemes was the submission of requests for the issuance of new or replacement credit cards, which were mailed to Ford. The cards were then used to purchase thousands of dollars of merchandise from Walmart, Best Buy, and other retail stores.

From 2013 to 2016, at least
80 attempted account takeovers resulted in the issuance of 50 fraudulent cards, resulting in financial losses of at least $145,129.02. Eight attempts to open new accounts were identified, three of which were successful, resulting in a loss of at least $10,736.98. justice.gov

Lawrence, KS: Man dies protecting dog in stabbing outside Lawrence grocery store
At 66-years-old, Daniel Brooks was enjoying retirement and moved to Lawrence eight months ago. Many in the neighborhood knew him as Danny.

Don Brooks said police told him the suspect had a problem with his brother's dog being at the store - saying that Bear didn't belong.

Update: Cheektowaga, NY: Man admits to murdering 7-Eleven employee inside store
The Erie County District Attorney's Office says the man responsible for murdering a convenience store employee and attempted to kill a responding police officer entered a guilty plea in court on Wednesday.

Update: Security Guard who shot man 3 times acted in self defense because the victim wasn't wearing a COVID mask
A liquor store security guard was acting in self defense when he shot a customer three times because the customer was "putting other's lives at risk by not wearing a [COVID] mask," the guard's private defense attorney said during a bond court hearing Wednesday. The argument did not sway cook County Judge Mary Marubio. "The victim fled the store, fell outside, followed by the defendant [who], according to the surveillance video, shot a second time. The defendant then paces back and forth and shot a third time," Marubio said before ordering 42-year-old Chester Holmes held without bail.

Holmes, who is barred from possessing a weapon because he is a four-time convicted felon and registered child sex offender, was working as an armed security guard at the store on the 6000 block of South Racine when a 28-year-old man walked in without a COVID mask around 9:53 am. Monday. Holmes and the victim argued about the mask policy and the victim eventually left. He then turned around and walked back in. When he did, Holmes met him with a drawn handgun and shot him. The victim fell to the ground outside the store. cwbchicago.com

Anchorage, AK: Alaska State Trooper shot several times while attempting an arrest at a General Store
An Alaska state trooper underwent multiple surgeries after he was shot several times Monday while trying to serve an arrest warrant on an Anchor Point man at a general store, according to charging documents filed by the state. Bret Herrick, 60, was charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault in connection with the shooting. He was arrested Tuesday morning after an extensive search in and around the Kenai Peninsula town. A troopers sergeant was trying to locate Herrick around 1 p.m. Monday because he was wanted on four outstanding misdemeanor warrants, according to an affidavit signed by Investigator Timothy Cronin. Herrick had recently been seen at The Warehouse general store on the Sterling Highway, the affidavit said. Trooper Bruce Brueggeman responded to the store to provide backup for the sergeant but got there first and saw Herrick outside, according to the affidavit. He ordered Herrick to stop, but Herrick can be seen walking away in security video and footage from the patrol vehicle's dashboard camera, the charges said. "Trp. Brueggeman quickened pace to catch up to Herrick," the affidavit said. Herrick then pulled out a handgun and began firing toward Brueggeman, Cronin wrote. Brueggeman was hit several times in his ballistic vest and in the upper left arm, which caused significant injury and bleeding, the affidavit said. adn.com
