SAVE THE DATE: RILA's 2023 Retail AP Conference

April 30 − May 3, 2023 | Denver, CO

Asset protection professionals have always been important to retail's success, but the pandemic has made the role more central to retail operations than ever before-and it's never going back.

Working together we helped keep the economy moving, making sure stores across the country could open and safely serve the public.

Collaborating with operational peers we helped implement new technologies to make the stores safer and more efficient for customers.

We trained associates to prepare for the unexpected, meeting every pandemic-related challenge as an opportunity to improve customer service and our workforce.

And we're tackling the growing challenge of organized retail crime, partnering with our peers in government affairs to write smarter laws and collaborating with law enforcement to go on offense against the criminal enterprises targeting our stores.


The U.S. Crime Surge
The Retail Impact

Retail Organizations Urge Congress to Wage War on ORC
Interest Groups Make Push To Battle ORC At The Federal Level

A number of interest groups launched efforts on Wednesday to encourage a crackdown on organized retail crime at the federal level.

Thefts executed by packs of robbers have garnered public attention during the crime wave of the past two years, with some retailers and convenience chains spending millions on new security measures or closing locations in dangerous cities. In response, trade associations are activating grassroots activists to lobby for legislative reform.

Retailers reported a 26.5% increase in organized retail crime last year, according to a survey from the National Retail Federation, while nearly 90% of respondents said that the phenomena of the past two years increased risk for their businesses through higher levels of violence, shoplifting, employee theft, and organized theft.

In response, lawmakers are advancing the Combatting Organized Retail Crime Act and the INFORM Consumers Act.

While the Combatting Organized Retail Crime Act would establish the Organized Retail Crime Coordination Center at Homeland Security Investigations, thereby launching a joint effort among law enforcement agencies and retail industry leaders, the INFORM Consumers Act would prevent the resale of stolen goods by requiring verification for high-volume third-party sellers on platforms such as Facebook Marketplace and eBay.

Although proponents of the legislation have argued that federal action is necessary to coordinate efforts across interstate borders, the increased thefts correspond with moves from progressive local officials to deemphasize the prosecution of minor offenses. California is among several states that have opted to loosen consequences for small-scale shoplifting, with residents approving a ballot measure in 2014 that prescribed misdemeanor penalties to nonviolent property crimes where the value of stolen goods does not exceed $950. dailywire.com

High Felony Theft Thresholds Fueling ORC
Oklahoma officials see organized retail theft skyrocket

Since then, police said organized retail theft has skyrocketed.

Oklahoma voters approved a state question in 2016 that, among other things, defined a felony as any theft over $1,000. Since then, police said organized retail theft has skyrocketed.

One lieutenant told KOCO 5 that they have to review anywhere from 40-85 cases a day for larceny.

At an interim study Tuesday afternoon, lawmakers focused on organized retail theft. It is a crime, officers said, that has been on the rise since 2016 when voters approved raising the felony threshold from $500 to $1,000.

"Our unit is organized retail crime. It was created in 2017, one year after the law changed in 2016. It was created because of the significant uptick in cases in the metro area," said Jason Miller, Oklahoma City Police Department.

Lawmakers behind the study said thieves are only receiving a slap on the wrist while retailers and customers are paying the price.

"Right now, in the laws of Oklahoma, you can steal up to $1,000 and only face a misdemeanor charge. Those thefts are not just absorbed by the retailer. They have to be passed on. That costs each of us," said Rep. Rande Worthen, (R) Lawton.

OKC officers said they recovered over $2 million in stolen retail products last year. They said repeat offenders are taking advantage of the state's "lenient law."

"The biggest problem that we have is repeat offenders. They all know if they don't meet the $1,000 threshold, that it's a misdemeanor," Miller said. koco.com

Companies Flock to Florida Over Crime Surge
Crime & safety concerns fuel migrations to Florida
When billionaire Ken Griffin announced in June that he planned to move the headquarters of his Chicago-based hedge fund Citadel to Miami, he cited the Windy City's high crime rate as a key factor. "Chicago is like Afghanistan, on a good day," he said during a speech to the Economic Club of Chicago in 2021.

The move highlights a growing trend of corporate relocations nationwide. This comes as violent crime has increased in most U.S. cities since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Council on Criminal Justice.

Persistent crime is one reason companies leave cities, often over concerns for executives' or employees' safety, experts say. Property crime also wreaks havoc on retailers and small businesses that are frequent targets of theft, prompting some of them to shutter.

Strong research suggests that high crime rates cause a population exodus, said Richard Rosenfeld, a professor of criminology and criminal justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis and a co-author of the CCJ study.

Luckily, Florida has benefited from this trend, as it's been the No. 1 draw for wealthy residents from high-tax states over the past few years. Lower crime rates than other metro areas has been one of the factors for this migration, along with lower tax rates and Florida's reputation as a pro-business state.

And it's important to note that while property crimes such as robbery fell during the lockdown years, they rose in most big cities in the first half of 2022.

"One of the big reasons you see migration from California, New York and Philadelphia is not just high taxes, but crime statistics," Boyd said. "St. Louis hasn't enjoyed the type of growth Kansas City has in recent years, and crime is a big reason why."

Crime has had a negative impact on the retail real estate market in some cities, such as San Francisco, where retailers shut down because dealing with theft was too costly and shoplifting was rarely prosecuted. bizjournals.com

Homicides Down After Increased Police Presence, Ghost Gun Crackdown
Oakland police chief credits extra officers for decline in shootings & homicides, more guns taken off the streets

Chief LeRonne Armstrong points to 'ghost gun' crackdown; says strategy is here to stay

Following a stretch of deadly gun violence this summer, Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong said Tuesday the department over the past month brought shootings down by 25% and homicides by 10% from the same period a year ago.

What has worked? Armstrong credits a 30-day strategy - which took effect Sept 26. - that sent more police to high-crime neighborhoods and detailed eight officers to a criminal investigative division to clear crimes more quickly.

Oakland has seen nine gun-related deaths since late September, down from 17 in the 30 days prior. And in the same period, officers recovered 82 firearms, 30% of which were ghost guns - untraceable firearms assembled by civilians and sold online.

The use of firearms in low-level crimes skyrocketed during the pandemic, said Armstrong, who further attributed law enforcement's progress to 120 arrests made during the past 30 days.

The program will be extended at least by another month, and partnerships with both the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives will keep officers in certain east and west Oakland neighborhoods where gun violence has been more prevalent.

But Armstrong did say his officers have recovered 1,235 firearms through 10 months this year, already exceeding last year's total. mercurynews.com

Progressive Protesters Try to Derail SF's Tough-on-Crime DA
San Francisco DA Brooke Jenkins walks out as protesters disrupt election debate
San Francisco's tough-on-crime district attorney walked out of a debate after woke protesters stormed the forum and began jeering the city's incumbent.

DA Brooke Jenkins had been on stage at San Francisco State University for roughly 20 minutes on Thursday, facing off against district attorney challengers John Hamasaki and Joe Alioto Veronese ahead of November's election, when dozens of activists flooded the room, KTVU reported.

San Francisco saw a surge in crime under Jenkins' progressive predecessor, Chesa Boudin, who was elected in 2019 on the promise of criminal justice reform.

So far this year, San Francisco has seen crime jump more than 7% this year compared to the same period in 2021, data show. Larceny theft, assault and rape are leading the way, at 15.4%, 11.6% and 8.9%, respectively.

The city instead experienced surges in shoplifting and broad daylight drug dealings, leading more than 61 percent of residents voted in a June recall election to oust Boudin and his soft-on-crime policies.

Jenkins promised to bring order back to the city, including enforcing drug crime laws and cracking down on anti-Asian attacks. After assuming office, she asked staffers to review every unclosed plea offer to determine which should be withdrawn. Just a few days later, she fired 15 staffers she inherited from her predecessor. nypost.com

Crime Becoming Top Political Issue
Hochul-Zeldin debate keeps coming back to the same issue - crime
The moderators took Gov. Kathy Hochul and her Republican challenger, Rep. Lee Zeldin, through more than a dozen concerns facing New Yorkers in their televised debate Tuesday night in New York City, but the conversation kept returning to the same issue - crime.

Zeldin, who has made crime a central issue of his campaign, sounded the alarm in his opening statement, declaring "New York is in a crisis" and citing the economy, safety, personal freedom and education. He went on to promise that he would declare a state of emergency on crime the day he took office and would remove Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg from office.

Zeldin returned relentlessly to the crime issue, blaming the state's relaxed rules on bail for allowing criminals to stay on the street. He promised to turn back the bail reform measures if elected.

Hochul contended that she addressed some of the problems with bail reform in this year's state budget negotiations and indicated that she would do more, depending on crime data. In turn, she defended the state's tough gun control laws and criticized Zeldin for voting against a federal ban on assault weapons. buffalonews.com

Large Companies Laid Off 100K+ Workers During the Pandemic
Walmart, Disney among top 12 employers that laid off thousands during the pandemic, House inquiry finds

Twelve of the nation's largest employers, including Walmart, Cisco and Chevron, laid off thousands during the pandemic, a House subcommittee survey found.

The nation's largest employers collectively laid off more than 100,000 workers during the Covid pandemic, according to a report released Tuesday by a House subcommittee.

Hourly workers were hit particularly hard. Not only were they more likely to get fired in 2019, 2020 and 2021 than salaried employees, but they were also more likely to quit and less likely to be promoted, congressional investigators found. The phenomenon disproportionately affected women, workers of color and older workers.

The findings are part of a staff report from the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, which detailed staffing inequities at 12 large corporations: AT&T, Berkshire Hathaway, Boeing, Chevron, Cisco, Citigroup, Comcast, Exxon Mobil, Oracle, Salesforce, Walmart and Walt Disney.

"Today's report demonstrates that the inequities observed during this crisis are deeply rooted in our economy and have persisted throughout the pandemic," Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., chair of the subcommittee, said in a statement. "These findings underscore the urgent need to address inequality as we continue to work to achieve a strong, sustainable, and equitable economic future."

Salaried workers at some of these companies often faired better than their lower-paid hourly counterparts. For example, Walmart's hourly staff quit or were fired at higher rates and received raises and promotions at lower rates than salaried workers 80% of the time, according to the report. cnbc.com

NYC Ordered to Reinstate Workers Fired for Refusing Vaccine
Judge tells NYC to rehire workers fired for refusing vaccination
A group of sanitation workers who were fired for refusing to comply with New York City's coronavirus vaccine mandate for government employees should be given back their jobs, as well as retroactive pay, a New York state judge ruled.

City employees were required to show proof of at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine before November 2021, amid worries that winter would hasten the spread of the virus. The sanitation workers were terminated in February this year. A mandate for public-facing employees of private companies also went into effect in December 2021, but was amended to include exemptions for performers and athletes after sharp criticism.

Porzio highlighted the exceptions, writing that if the mandates were "about safety and public health, no one would be exempt." He said that while the health commissioner had the authority to issue public health mandates, the commissioner "cannot create a new condition of employment for City employees," nor can the public health authority "prohibit an employee from reporting to work" or terminate an employee.

Mayor Eric Adams (D) announced last month that the city was dropping the mandate for private employees as of Nov. 1. He said at the time that ending the mandate for government workers was "not on the radar for us." (Porzio wrote in his ruling that the mayor "cannot exempt certain employees from these orders.") washingtonpost.com

'Tripledemic' Looming for Fall & Winter
Is the US facing a potential 'tripledemic' of flu, RSV and COVID-19?
As summer ended and the United States headed into the fall and winter, doctors were worried Americans would see a "twindemic" -- a situation in which both flu and COVID-19 spread at the same time.

But experts told ABC News the country may now be facing the threat of a "tripledemic" as doctors see an early rise in other pediatric respiratory viruses, particularly respiratory syncytial virus, or RSV.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, respiratory illnesses are appearing earlier, and in more people, than in recent years. The federal health agency says there has also been early increases in flu activity across most of the U.S. with indications that this season could be much more severe than the previous two seasons. abcnews.go.com

What Great Remote Managers Do Differently



'Formal Investigation' of Kroger-Albertsons Merger
Kroger-Albertsons urged to delay merger-related $4 billion dividend

State AGs say full antitrust review of blockbuster deal should come first

The attorneys general of the District of Columbia and five states today sent a letter to Albertsons Cos. and The Kroger Co. urging them to hold off on a special $4 billion dividend payment to Albertsons shareholders under their proposed $24.6 billion merger deal.

D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine (D.), who's leading the state AG group, said Wednesday that the bipartisan request was made to enable states to complete antitrust reviews of the Kroger-Albertsons merger, announced Oct. 14. He noted that his office also plans a formal investigation of the planned transaction and its impact on workers and shoppers, as well as whether the dividend would impinge on Albertsons' ability to compete during the merger review process.

Under the merger agreement, Kroger is slated to acquire Albertsons for an estimated total consideration of $34.10 per share, including the assumption of $4.7 billion of Albertsons' debt. The deal also calls for Albertsons to pay a special cash dividend of up to $4 billion, or about $6.85 per share, to stockholders on Nov. 7. That payment would reduce the merger transaction's per-share consideration to approximately $27.25.

"Healthy and strong competition is an American value that Republicans and Democrats can unite around," Racine said in a statement. "Anticompetitive mergers have real impacts on everyday people. We're deeply concerned about the level of concentration in essential industries, such as grocery stores. And we're asking Albertsons to not proceed with the payout while we thoroughly assess whether this merger is anti-competitive, anti-consumer or anti-worker. While we trust that Albertsons will adhere to our request, we are actively exploring other options to achieve our objectives, including litigation." supermarketnews.com

Another Supply Chain Threat Looming?
Threat of rail strike rises as another union rejects proposed labor deal
Rank and file members of another railroad union have rejected a tentative labor deal, a move that further raises the odds that America's freight railroad workers will go on strike sometime next month.

The Brotherhood of Railroad Signalmen voted against September's tentative agreement, according to results announced Wednesday. Earlier this month, rank-and-file members of the Brotherhood of Maintenance of Way Employees District (BMWED), which represents about 23,000 track maintenance workers, voted to reject a similar tentative labor deal, setting the stage for a possible strike as soon as Nov. 19.

Although these unions are smaller than the two that represent conductors and engineers, a strike by any one of the 12 freight rail unions would be honored by the others and cause the nation's major freight railroads to halt operations.

That in turn would create massive problems for the US economy, snarling still-struggling supply chains and triggering widespread bottlenecks and shortages. About 30% of US freight, when measured by weight and distance traveled, moves by rail. Prices of goods from gasoline to food to cars could soar if trains halt. In addition, factories could be forced to shut temporarily due to parts shortages. Goods that consumers want to buy during the holiday season could be missing from store shelves. cnn.com

Boosting Employee Productivity with Facial Recognition?
How facial recognition can help improve remote productivity
Remote working has become the norm for many following the COVID pandemic. But while it offers many benefits for both employers and workers, it can also lead to problems with productivity and stress.

A new infographic from work time management firm TrackTime24 looks at some of the issues faced by remote workers and at how improved time tracking technology using facial recognition can help.

Among its findings are that 75 percent of remote workers have experience burnout, 37 percent are working longer hours than they did before and 22 percent find it hard to switch off. This can lead to stress, reduced productivity and lower quality of work.

Using time tracking technology can identify where productivity is being lost. And employing the latest facial recognition technology means this can be achieved automatically, while helping staff manage their workday and break times, and helping them focus. betanews.com

150 New Apple Shop-in-Shops Inside Target Stores
Target triples Apple shop-in-shops ahead of holidays
Target and Apple are deepening their relationship with added shop-in-shops and tech perks tied to the retailer's loyalty program. The number of Apple shop-in-shops inside Target stores has tripled this year, to over 150 locations, the retailer said in a press release. The two companies started with just 17 locations in early 2021.

The shops include Apple-trained Target tech consultants and have twice the space for Apple products, according to Target. Jill Sando, Target's chief merchandising officer, framed the Apple shops as one of a handful of "branded and immersive retail experiences" the retailer has been building out in recent years along with its Ulta Beauty, Disney and Levi's collaborations. retaildive.com

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Weekly Topic: Ransomware

CISA: Ransomware 101

Ransomware is an ever-evolving form of malware designed to encrypt files on a device, rendering any files and the systems that rely on them unusable. Malicious actors then demand ransom in exchange for decryption. Ransomware actors often target and threaten to sell or leak exfiltrated data or authentication information if the ransom is not paid. In recent years, ransomware incidents have become increasingly prevalent among the Nation's state, local, tribal, and territorial (SLTT) government entities and critical infrastructure organizations.

Malicious actors continue to adjust and evolve their ransomware tactics over time, and the U.S. Government, state and local governments, as well as the private sector remain vigilant in maintaining awareness of ransomware attacks and associated tactics, techniques, and procedures across the country and around the world.

Cybersecurity Workforce Gap Grows to 3.4 Million
Global Cybersecurity Workforce Gap Up 26% to 3.4M, Finds (ISC)²'s 2022 Study

The cybersecurity workforce gap has increased by 26.2% in 2022 compared to last year. This is despite the addition of 464,000 professionals to the cybersecurity industry, according to the International Information System Security Certification Consortium or (ISC)².

Cybercriminals have kept the global infosec community busy this past year, considering an 11% increase (464,000) in the cybersecurity workforce, from 4.183 million to 4.7 million between 2021 and 2022, is way too inadequate compared to the 26.2% increase in the demand for security talent.

(ISC)²'s assessment revealed that the cybersecurity workforce gap has risen from 2.7 million in 2021 to 3.4 million in 2022.

As such, 70% of respondents (mainly cybersecurity workers) in (ISC)²'s 2022 Cybersecurity Workforce Study said their organizations are understaffed. Respondents said this has directly hampered multiple functional and operational elements of cybersecurity, including the slower patching of critical systems, inadequacies in process assessment and oversight, and the inability to dedicate enough time and resources for training.

Respondents from security software/hardware development (66%), construction (65%), food and beverage/hospitality/travel (65%), retail/wholesale (65%), and IT services (61%) were the most confident about their organizations' capability to deal with cyber incidents.

Cybersecurity professionals have particularly been occupied this year with the geopolitics of the conflict in Ukraine visibly spilling into the cybersphere as individual hackers, ransomware gangs, and hacktivists took sides. Despite declining in H1 2022, data breaches constituted one of the reasons behind employee dissatisfaction. "High-profile data breaches increase organizational focus on cybersecurity, but often at employees' expense," noted (ISC)².

For instance, higher workloads, expectations, and increased focus on cybersecurity aren't translated into corresponding top-down support. Consequently, only 22% of respondents said a high-profile data breach leads to increased spending on new technologies, just 20% said security budgets are hiked, and only 16% of respondents said the management hires additional staff. spiceworks.com

More Ransomware Groups Will Appear Next Quarter
Ransomware Gangs Ramp Up Industrial Attacks in US

The manufacturing segment was especially hard hit by cyberattacks in the third quarter of 2022.

Ransomware gangs are hitting the industrial sector hard - and especially manufacturing companies, with significant spikes in cyberattack activity against US organizations spotted in the third quarter. Meanwhile, emerging ransomware groups are bursting onto the scene, threatening to push the rate of attacks up even higher.
The majority (68%) of observed incidents were aimed at the manufacturing sector. Out of the confirmed attacks (i.e., those publicly reported, seen in the firm's telemetry, or confirmed on the Dark Web), 88 were against that segment, especially those producing metal products (12 attacks).

Nine percent of attacks targeted the food and beverage sector (12 incidents), followed by oil and natural gas (6%, or eight incidents) and the energy and pharmaceuticals sectors (collectively making up 10% of attacks, with seven and six incidents respectively). The chemical, mining, engineering, and water and wastewater systems segments had just one attack each.

In terms of the actors on the industrial stage, the LockBit gang was behind more than a third of all global incidents (35%), while some other known names focused on the energy sector (Ragnar Locker and BlackCat/AlphaV, notably). But the quarter also saw the rise of some emerging actors, like Sparta Blog, BianLian, Donuts, Onyx, and the slow-burning Yanluowang.

Going forward, Dragos researchers warned that more new ransomware groups will appear in the next quarter, as either new or reformed ones, due to the changes in ransomware groups and the leaking of the LockBit 3.0 builder - all of which could lead to greater attack volumes. darkreading.com

'Spdrman' Hacker Charged in Dark Web Marketplace Scheme
Notorious hacker know as 'Spdrman' arraigned for role in Real Deal dark web marketplace
A British national whose hacker handles include "Spdrman" and "Popopret" was arraigned on charges related to operating a dark web marketplace that sold login credentials for U.S. government networks, stolen bank account credentials, malware and other illicit materials, federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

U.S. law enforcement officials allege that Daniel Kayne was the mastermind behind The Real Deal that began sometime in early 2015. According to Vice, the underground marketplace distinguished itself by selling computer exploits and stolen login credentials. The Real Deal closed in November 2016.

According to 2019 Bloomberg profile, Kayne is a self-taught coder who eventually became a contract cybersecurity specialist and then veered toward murkier jobs that led to black hat activities such as extortion, mercenary hacks and DDoS attacks.

The charges announced Wednesday range from 2015 to 2017, according to his April 2021 indictment unsealed Tuesday. Kaye was overseas when the indictment was filed and in September agreed to extradition from Cyprus to the U.S., federal prosecutors in the Northern District of Georgia said Wednesday. cyberscoop.com

Lawmakers & Regulators Sound Alarm Over Cannabis Burglaries
Colorado Cannabis Regulators Issue First Ever Bulletin on Burglaries

Colorado cannabis regulators issued a bulletin on Monday to draw attention to the rise in burglaries against the state's licensed cannabis businesses.

The Marijuana Enforcement Division (MED) has "observed an increase in the frequency of reported incidents of burglaries, impacting the Colorado Regulated Marijuana industry," the bulletin, the first of its kind issued by the state's cannabis regulators, noted.

Specifically, cannabis retail is the most often targeted license-type, representing 64% of the crimes reported to the MED through 2021. This year, burglaries against cannabis shops have accounted for 32 out of 33 burglaries.

"These burglaries have most often involved persons unlawfully entering a Regulated Marijuana Business after closing with the intent to steal property," the bulletin noted. "This Bulletin is intended to create a heightened awareness of potential vulnerabilities and promote increased security measures."

Regulators have found in an analysis that, between 2019 and 2021, these crimes cost $2.5 million in cash and cannabis product losses.

Regulators noted that "security standards above the minimum requirements had fewer successful entries." What does that mean? Securing cash and cannabis products in safes at night, locking any refrigerators or freezers that store cannabis products, implementing reinforced and multi pronged locks and guard plates for doors. The bulletin highlighted that some Colorado jurisdictions require such extra security measures, and that in areas that have these rules, "attempted burglaries are much less successful."

Lawmakers have increasingly linked instances of violence at cannabis businesses to the industry's banking hurdles. This month, Colorado Gov. Jared Polis, Colorado Attorney General Phil Weiser, and Colorado Treasurer Dave Young sent a letter to Congressional leadership asking them to consider the importance of cannabis banking. cannabiswire.com

The Cannabis Black Market in NYC
How Old Fashioned Tactics Can Stomp Out Illegal Pot Shops In NYC
NYC has one of the world's most sophisticated underground cannabis supply chain networks making it nearly impossible to eradicate their activity. This puts legal entrepreneurs at a competitive disadvantage in market share and price wars because of the higher taxes, fees, and strict industry regulations they must adhere to.

1. Data: Legit cannabis companies, on the other hand, are legally required to keep records and track data allowing them to effectively use point-of-sale data to target customers through marketing tactics like email, social media, content, and advertising.

2. Certified Lab-Tested Products: Legit companies can solve this consumer problem and gain an edge over the competition by promoting their 3rd party lab-tested and vetted products. Shout it from the rooftops!

3. Tourists: Tour guides, blogs, travel publications, and review sites are all great channels to target this audience with a strong marketing message about the pitfalls of purchasing unregulated products.

4. Influencers: Enlisting influencers can be a powerful marketing tool because of the trust and persuasion they wield with their audience. There are influencers for all age groups and interests, from the scientific to cultural to lifestyle.

5. Local Government: Lobby the government to require delivery apps like Weedmaps and PotGuide to verify licensed operators with the government database of registered and licensed operators.

Conclusion: Trying to root out the unground cannabis marketplace through legal force is only a game of whack-a-mole. Still, it's a fight that New York City and licensed businesses can't lose. Maybe some old-fashioned entrepreneurial tactics will do the trick. cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

Support for Legalization Surges
The skyrocketing support for legal marijuana
Monmouth University released a new poll Monday finding that nearly 7 in 10 Americans - 68 percent - support legalizing small amounts for personal use, compared with just 26 percent who oppose it.

The poll comes as President Biden in recent weeks moved to pardon anyone convicted of a federal crime for simply possessing the drug, and urged governors to do the same at the state level. (The poll shows 69 percent support those pardons.) He also said his administration would review marijuana's classification as a Schedule I drug, a category that includes heroin.

Compared with 25 years ago, the poll numbers regarding marijuana legalization have flipped. In 1997, an ABC News poll showed just 22 percent supported legalizing possession of small amounts for personal use, and three-quarters opposed it. washingtonpost.com

Only 18% of Retailers Optimize Return Rates for Major Product Categories

According to new survey findings from Appriss Retail and Incisiv, the ongoing growth of ecommerce is transforming how retailers must manage returns

IRVINE, Calif. - Oct. 26, 2022 - Appriss Retail, an industry leader in data science that transforms the consumer purchase cycle, today announced the results of a new survey in partnership with Incisiv. The "2022 State of the Industry: Returns as an Engagement Strategy" report found that retailers who treat returns with a "one-size-fits-all" approach will miss out on important engagement opportunities.

The survey asked over 130 retailers about their outlooks regarding returns as a customer engagement opportunity, as well as their challenges, capabilities and future plans for strategically improving overall returns performance.

Online order return rates are three to four times higher than store-bought purchases

The growth of ecommerce has increased return rates significantly, but many retailers have not adjusted their returns strategy accordingly. A large majority (69%) of retailers are still treating returns as "a cost of doing business," despite recognizing the benefits of optimizing returns management. In fact, results from the survey showed that:

Return rates are growing faster than revenue growth rates for 91% of retailers.
Most retailers (69%) lack a good understanding of the root cause of their returns.
Only 29% of retailers have an end-to-end strategic returns management program in place.

Retailers see the value in optimizing returns but lack follow-through

Optimizing returns is a requirement for long-term profitability and customer loyalty. In fact, 42% of shoppers will stop supporting a retailer after multiple retailer-induced returns. Retailers understand the importance of improving returns performance but there is a major gap between intent and execution. The report found that:

Reducing return rates is a top priority for 83% of retailers but only 21% believe their current processes are effective at doing so.

Similarly, 77% of retailers are interested in optimizing the cost of reverse logistics but only 29% are currently achieving towards this goal.

Despite 64% of retailers reporting that returns are a problem they have been tasked to address, only 27% have an executive responsible for overall returns performance.

Amazon Workers Increase Pressure with Strikes & Protests
Amazon workers strike amid allegations of crackdown on unionization activities

Workers across the US allege the company is fending off efforts to organize as election petition to be resubmitted in California

Workers at Amazon are increasing pressure on the world's largest retailer with strikes and protests aimed at improving working conditions and wages as the company continues to fend off unionization efforts.

The unionization movement at Amazon, which has garnered worldwide attention, suffered a recent setback when it lost a vote at a warehouse outside of Albany, New York, amid numerous charges of unfair labor practices.

But Amazon workers plan to fight another union election at Amazon ONT8 warehouse in Moreno Valley, California. They plan to resubmit an election petition in the next few weeks, after an initial one was challenged.

In the meantime workers across the US allege that the giant company is conducting a harsh crackdown on unionization activities and they have responded with protests and strikes. theguardian.com

Sacramento, CA: $90,000 in jewelry stolen from store in bold burglary
The owners of a Sacramento jewelry store said a woman caught on surveillance video stealing thousands of dollars worth of jewelry did not act alone. Liz Shoes Best & Fitted Outfits owners Arif Shah and Amir Siddiqui said a group of four women walked into their store on Arden Way Monday afternoon when Shah was working by himself. Shah said some of the women distracted him while another woman, pretending to try on a dress, forced her way into a locked room that houses the more expensive gold jewelry. "She opened [it] with a screwdriver," Shah said. Security camera footage shared with KCRA 3 shows the woman rifling through the shelves of jewelry, even prying them open with an object in her hand. She is then seen stuffing the jewelry into a bag. Shah said she got away with around $90,000 dollars worth of jewelry, adding that the theft happened in just a matter of minutes. "This was a big shock because this is not a small item," Shah said. "We will be long-time suffering from this."  kcra.com

Long Beach, CA: Police investigate string of thefts at Nike Stores after thieves steal thousands of dollars in items
Police are investigating a string of thefts that occurred at two Nike stores in Long Beach earlier this month that resulted in roughly $17,000 in merchandise being stolen. The first two thefts were reported on Oct. 9 and 10 at the Nike Outlet Store at the Pike, according to a search warrant filed in Long Beach Superior Court. Officers arrived around 5:33 p.m. to 71 Aquarium Way where the store manager said two women wearing Adidas sweaters and one man wearing a black hat and hoodie had walked into the store a few minutes earlier and began grabbing items off the shelves. All three suspects appeared to grab as much apparel as they could hold and exited the store without making any attempt to pay for them, according to the warrant. Because a store policy prevents employees from intervening during a theft, according to the warrant, the store manager could only stand by and watch as the suspects fled with an estimated $3,836 in stolen merchandise. The following day at around 1:15 p.m., three people, believed to be the same suspects, entered the Nike Store Outlet and within minutes, made off with more merchandise, this time valued at an estimated $3,312.  lbpost.com

DOJ: Anchorage, AK: Man Sentenced to Nine Years for Stealing 22 Guns
An Anchorage man was sentenced today to nine years in federal prison for stealing 22 firearms from an Anchorage gun store in 2019. In handing down the sentence, Chief U.S. District Judge Sharon L. Gleason noted this was a series of criminal acts that "put so many people at risk." According to court documents, Hans Mikaele Wells, aka "Mika," 26, pleaded guilty in July 2022 to stealing 22 firearms from Granny's Guns, a federally licensed firearms dealer located in Anchorage, on June 6, 2019, along with three co-conspirators. "All of the involved defendants demonstrated a complete indifference to the safety of others through their actions in their violent crime spree," stated Police Chief Michael Kerle. "From the theft of multiple vehicles, to firing shots in public, driving erratically on our streets, and stealing multiple firearms; it is imperative they are held accountable for their behavior. Wells' sentencing is a big part of that. We are grateful for the efforts of all our law enforcement partners who were involved in seeing this case through." justice.gov

Philadelphia, PA: Man killed FedEx driving instructor after receiving negative evaluation
A Philadelphia man has been charged in the killing of a FedEx employee at the airport, weeks after the victim did not approve him to be a driver for the package delivery company, authorities said Tuesday. Keith Lamont Blount, 59, is charged with criminal homicide, murder of the first and third degree and firearms charges in the death of 51-year-old Bartholomew Masciulli, the Delaware County District Attorney's Office said.

Update: Boulder, CO: Trial Begins for Colorado Man who Livestreamed Supermarket Shooting
A jury must decide whether or not a man obstructed police officers when he pulled out his phone and livestreamed the deadly shooting at a King Soopers in Boulder last March. Dean Schiller's trial for police obstruction charges started Tuesday. During court, the jury heard testimony from three officers who responded to the scene. Emily Giffen, an employee of three years at the Table Mesa King Soopers who was working inside the store at the time of the shooting, said she's hoping for justice in this case. "I was right outside the front door. I witnessed two of the people at the entrance way that were shot," she said, adding that many of those who were fired upon that day were her friends. "Everybody there was very close, we all really cared about each other." Tuesday, Dean Schiller, the man who livestreamed the shooting and subsequent police response, stood before a jury at the Boulder County Justice Center. "While we were running for our lives, and scared, you're recording a shooting," said Giffen. She's hoping he'll face consequences.  courttv.com

Seattle, WA: Columbia City business owner in critical condition after shooting
Mamadou Diakhate, a well-known small business owner in Columbia City, was in critical condition Tuesday at a Seattle hospital after he was shot in a robbery last week. Diakhate, owner of Baol African Imports, a longtime Columbia City business, was one of three people shot in Seattle over the span of three days in what prosecutors called "a cavalcade of violence." A fourth victim suffered cuts when a bullet was fired through her windshield. According to police, Diakhate was working at the specialty store just before noon Oct. 17 when a man wearing a balaclava-style mask walked in with a gun concealed in a shopping bag. The man demanded Diakhate's debit card and PIN at gunpoint, then shot Diakhate in the chest after he complied, Seattle police said. The gunman then fled the store. On Monday, King County prosecutors charged Ashton Christopher Lefall, 31, with first-degree robbery and first-degree assault in connection with the shooting of Diakhate.  seattletimes.com

Deland, FL: Bleach Poured In 'Difficult' Dollar General Coworker's Drink
A Florida Dollar General employee is facing charges after authorities said he poured bleach into a co-worker's drink following an argument because he was "being difficult to work with," according to investigators. Jerome Ellis, 48, of DeLand was charged with poisoning and tampering with evidence following the Oct. 24 incident, according to a Volusia County Sheriff's Office arrest affidavit. According to authorities, deputies were called to a Dollar General store at 2531 N. Woodland Blvd. shortly after 8:20 p.m. When they arrived, the unnamed victim told deputies he was drinking a soda with his lunch and left it unsupervised behind the counter to use the restroom. When he returned, the victim said he took a drink and it tasted and smelled like bleach or cleaning supplies. Deputies reviewed video surveillance footage from the store, which showed Ellis pouring bleach into the soda can. Authorities said Ellis also wiped the can with a paper towel, walked away and came back to spit in the drink. Video surveillance also showed Ellis attempting to unplug the store's security cameras, according to the arrest affidavit. According to authorities, Ellis told deputies he wiped bleach around the can rim to get back at his co-worker for "being difficult to work with." patch.com
