Walmart's Aggressive Approach to Fighting Theft
There's so many Walmart shoplifting charges you may not realize what you're doing is 'theft'

A LAWYER has explained all the shoplifting charges at Walmart that they claim you may not even realize are considered theft.

You may think shoplifting is just putting an item in your bag and walking out of the store without paying. However, it isn't quite that straightforward. At Walmart, shoppers can get hit with charges for a variety of illicit activities, including having intent to shoplift.

The law firm explained that just walking into the store with the intent to steal could lead to a separate charge, but this is admittedly difficult to prove in court. You can also face shoplifting charges for something called transferring. This is when people will put a more expensive item in a less-expensive box so they don't have to pay the full price.

Another way that shoppers can get in huge trouble is by moving items. "If you are utilizing an item such as soda and you drink it and put it back on the shelf somewhere else, you are shoplifting," Barkemeyer Law Firm said.

Finally, a method that could lead to charges is altering a price tag. This is when a shopper takes the tag from a cheaper item and uses it to pay for something more expensive. "This is also considered shoplifting."

This comes as another lawyer has revealed what happens if you're found stealing at the big box retailer. If a person is caught stealing merchandise from Walmart, "a loss prevention officer may reasonably detain you at the store until the police arrive," according to emergency law firm Attorney 911.

Another C-Store Chain Closing During Overnight Hours Due to Crime
QuickTrip implements 'augmented store hours' for multiple stores location in Wichita

QuickTrip has adjusted hours at multiple Wichita locations to address retail crime.

KAKE News noticed a number of locations are closed periodically at night over the weekends. QuickTrip stores are usually open 24/7.

QuickTrip's corporate office wrote in a statement to KAKE News that it is taking "appropriate measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and customers, including augmented store hours for a number of our locations throughout Wichita."

The convenience store is now closed from 1-3 a.m. on the weekends. QuickTrip told KAKE News it made the decision, in consultation with the Wichita Police Department, in an effort to address retail crime.

"We are looking at trying to become more methodical in how we're addressing crime, the spots that we see crime happening, and just come up with new ways, aside from just over policing, to actually address crime," Hoheisel said.

You can read the full statement from QuikTrip below:

"QuikTrip prides itself on offering our customers the highest quality products and services 24 hours a day at our 955 stores across 16 states. However, when necessary, we take appropriate measures to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and customers, including augmented store hours for a number of our locations throughout Wichita. This strategic operational decision was made in consultation with the Wichita Police department in an effort to address retail crime and minimize strain on police resources. We will continue to take necessary steps to ensure the safety of our employees and customers."  kake.com

Progressive DAs Fueling Crime & Theft Surge?
'No justice at all': Texas DA candidate slams progressive prosecutors
Amid surging concern about crime nationwide, many district attorney races, once considered down-ballot afterthoughts, have become hotly contested, high-interest political dogfights.

Recently, much of the disagreement between candidates revolves around so-called "progressive" prosecution policies, which are often praised by Democratic lawmakers as a way to advance social justice.

Republican lawmakers, on the other hand, have latched on to progressive prosecution as a political weak point, adopting a tough-on-crime approach rooted in strict enforcement of the law.

I happen to have a very firm belief that the D.A. in a county sets the tone for that county," Hays County, Texas GOP district attorney candidate David Puryear told The National Desk (TND). "First of all, you're the most powerful individual in the county - which is why the selection of D.A. should be very carefully made."

Earlier this year, San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin was recalled over what critics argued was a failure to control the city's violent crime. Boudin originally took office in January 2020.

Under Boudin, prosecutions for theft tanked, from 70% under his predecessor to 44% under Boudin in 2020, according to data from The San Francisco Examiner. The number rose slightly by mid-June 2021.

According to Puryear, progressive prosecutors like Boudin have "hijacked" the term "prosecutorial discretion," and used it as grounds to fail to prosecute certain categories of crimes.

A TND analysis from last year found that the mayors, district attorneys, sheriffs and city council members from the nation's 15 cities with the highest murder rates were predominantly Democrats, based on data from World Population Review. cbsaustin.com

Crime Becomes Hot Button Political Issue
Can a Republican Become California's Top Cop?
Rachel, a Democrat, says she will vote for Nathan Hochman, the GOP candidate for attorney general. Even though she and California Attorney General Rob Bonta share other political beliefs, she said the Democratic attorney general isn't doing enough to stop the surge in violent crime across the state. She's particularly angry that Bonta has declined to take over her case from embattled Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascón.

Too many Democratic officials have pushed liberal policies that emboldened criminals, critics argue. Top policy targets include cashless bail, early release for tens of thousands of prisoners, and reduced punishment for many convicted of theft and other nonviolent offenses.

Over the last three months, worries about rising crime have helped power New York Rep. Lee Zeldin to within striking distance of incumbent Gov. Kathy Hochul. And growing anxiety over public safety ranks among the top three to five issues in many urban areas across the country.

In California, rising violent crime has been a flash-point all year, before and after San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin, who was accused of coddling criminals and neglecting rampant drug use on city streets, was recalled in early June. In Los Angeles, critics of Gascón, who is known as the "godfather of progressive prosecutors" and preceded Boudin as San Francisco DA, claimed to have collected 715,000 signatures to launch a recall of him.

A Harvard/Harris poll released Oct. 14 found that 68% of respondents considered crime to be "very important" and are more likely to vote Republican than Democratic in the upcoming midterm election because of that concern. realclearpolitics.com

Chicago Mayor Calls for Statewide 'Weapons of War' Ban
Lightfoot calls for statewide ban on 'weapons of war' following mass shooting
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is calling on the Illinois legislature to ban "weapons of war" following a mass shooting in Garfield Park Monday night that left 14 people shot, including three children. Lightfoot posted a statement Tuesday on Twitter demanding lawmakers institute a "statewide ban" on the firearms.

The area where the shooting occurred already receives added resources - like stepped-up police presence and help with jobs, housing and programming - under initiatives aimed at tamping down crime in some of the most violent neighborhoods.

While the city logged 580 murders and more than 3,000 shooting victims through October, Lightfoot and Brown have frequently touted declining numbers in those targeted communities. fox32chicago.com

Lockdown at Largest iPhone Factory Will Hit Apple Hard Ahead of Holidays
Chinese workers flee COVID lockdown at huge iPhone factory, potentially putting Apple in a bind as the holiday season draws near
Workers at the Foxconn manufacturing facility in China, a key facility for Apple's iPhone, have been seen fleeing the plant after a COVID outbreak triggered a lockdown.

It's unclear how many cases of COVID have been identified at the facility, but with China's strict zero-COVID policy, the workplace ordered a lockdown. Video shared online showed roughly 10 people jumping a fence outside the plant. Officials, on Sunday, said the company would not stop workers from leaving.

Foxconn is Apple's largest assembly factory for the iPhone-and the lockdown comes as the holiday season, typically one of the hottest selling periods of the year, approaches. Officials, though, say they expect the overall impact to be limited, as the company is shifting production to other sites.

Last week, Apple said demand for the new iPhone 14 Pro models was particularly strong, but supplies were constrained. The lockdown means hundreds of thousands of workers in the Zhengzhou facility have been subject to "closed loop operations," meaning they're only able to travel from their dormitories and the production lines. That has led some workers to depart the site or refuse to return to work.

Apple has been working to shift more of its production outside of China as a result of the country's policies. Earlier this year, a two-month lockdown in Shanghai resulted in supply-chain disruptions for the company. fortune.com

'The Pandemic is Not Over'
Health experts warn of winter COVID surge amid fewer safety precautions
New subvariants of omicron are seeping into the United States and across the globe and may not be as effective against existing COVID vaccines, according to global and federal health authorities. And in the coming months, health experts are warning of a surge in cases.

Dr. Syra Madad, senior director of the systemwide special pathogens program at NYC Health + Hospital, said in a phone conversation with the Phoenix that COVID infections will likely climb during winter because of the highly transmissible omicron variant and other emerging subvariants.

And to fight the outbreak, it's important to stay "up to date with your vaccination because that is one of the best defenses we have against COVID-19," Madad argued. floridaphoenix.com

Lawmakers Unveil 'The Facial Recognition Act'
Sets up broad limits on law enforcement use of facial recognition surveillance

The Facial Recognition Act: A Promising Path to Put Guardrails on a Dangerously Unregulated Surveillance Technology
On Sept. 28, Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.)-along with Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas), Yvette Clarke (D-Mass.), and Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.)-introduced the Facial Recognition Act, a bill that sets broad limits on law enforcement use of facial recognition surveillance. The legislation would enact a set of policies that effectively address both the risks that come about when facial recognition technology doesn't work well-including wrongful arrests and algorithmic bias-and those that arise when its success opens the door to pervasive surveillance and abuse.

Despite concerns about the technology, Congress has failed to enact any measures to put guardrails on the technology, leaving it largely unregulated. Such inaction is ominous given how rapidly facial recognition surveillance is being adopted by police departments across the country (for example, Clearview AI's facial recognition systems are now used by over 3,000 police departments, roughly one in every six across the country).

While several other bills on facial recognition have been introduced, the Facial Recognition Act is the first thoughtful and detailed articulation of what a regulatory regime for state and federal law enforcement use of facial recognition technology could look like, if codified. The bill should jump-start a much-needed discussion in Congress about how to address and regulate the use of the technology, in the hopes that it will prompt the passage of much-needed limits into law.

Until an effective regulatory regime is in place, the government could implement a moratorium on law enforcement use of facial recognition. Pausing law enforcement use of facial recognition while policymakers assess reasonable rules would be far better than the status quo, where debate over limits occurs as the technology is deployed in unrestricted and unsafe manners.

These circumstances are certainly not ideal, but that is no reason to avoid the discussion of what regulations and limits are needed. The Facial Recognition Act will hopefully be the first step in fostering meaningful engagement by Congress and pressing it to pass meaningful limits into law. lawfareblog.com

$10 Billion Opioid Settlement
CVS, Walgreens to Pay More Than $10 Billion to Settle Opioid Lawsuits

Drugstore chains agree to make payments to states, cities and tribes that sued over opioid abuse

CVS Health Corp. and Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. have agreed to pay more than $10 billion in a landmark settlement to resolve opioid-crisis lawsuits brought by states, cities and other governments.

The two largest U.S. drugstore chains said they reached a framework to settle the collection of lawsuits brought by governments and Native American tribes blaming pharmacies for helping fuel the nation's opioid epidemic.

Under the proposed deal, CVS would pay $4.9 billion to states and municipalities and $130 million to tribes over the next 10 years starting in 2023. The company said the agreement isn't an admission of guilt and that it would continue to defend against any litigation that the settlement doesn't resolve.

Walgreens said it has offered to pay up to $4.79 billion to states over 15 years and about $155 million to tribes. It also expects to pay up to $753.5 million in attorneys fees over six years. The company said the settlement wasn't an admission of wrongdoing.

Each state, local government and tribe still must decide whether to participate in the settlement. Plaintiffs' attorneys appointed to lead the negotiations said they encouraged governments and tribes to join the settlement, which they said holds the pharmacies accountable.

CVS Chief Executive Karen Lynch, on a call with analysts, said the settlement is in the "best interests of all parties and helps put a decades-old issue behind us." She said she was optimistic that states would join the deal since attorneys general were part of the negotiations. wsj.com

Kroger-Albertsons Merger Faces Lawsuit
WA sues to block $4 billion Albertsons dividend ahead of Kroger merger
Washington's top lawyer has asked a court to stop Albertsons from paying investors a $4 billion dividend set to be paid out ahead of the grocery retailer's proposed merger with rival Kroger.

The lawsuit, filed Tuesday by state Attorney General Bob Ferguson, is among the first targeting the proposed merger, which would combine the two of the largest grocers operating in Washington into a single corporation. But at least one legal expert is skeptical the state has the authority to block the payment.

In the suit, which was filed in King County Superior Court, Ferguson argues that a $4 billion dividend would sap Albertsons' ability to keep its stores open during the years it likely would take to complete the $20 billion-plus merger. The Attorney General's Office also requested a temporary restraining order to block the dividend payment, which Albertsons expects to complete Monday, until the lawsuit is resolved.

"Paying out $4 billion before regulators can do their job and review the proposed merger will weaken Albertsons' ability to continue business operations and compete," Ferguson said in a statement Tuesday.

Concerns over potential store closures are particularly acute in Seattle and across Washington, where Albertsons, which owns Safeway, and Kroger, which owns QFC and Fred Meyer, are two of the biggest players in local grocery markets. seattletimes.com

100 New Small-Format Kohl's Stores Coming
Kohl's opens concept store with self-checkout, other new elements

Kohl's has unveiled a one-of-a-kind "concept" store designed to provide a more localized and modern shopping experience.

Located in Tacoma, Wash., the 35,000-sq.-ft. store is much smaller than a traditional Kohl's, which averages about 80,000 sq. ft. and is "too large" for many small markets, the retailer said. Kohl's said the new Tacoma outpost is intended to give the retailer the opportunity to test (and learn from) new ideas and store experiences which may be used in new or existing locations in the future.

In May, Kohl's revealed plans to open about 100 small-format locations during the next five years or so in markets untapped by existing Kohl's stores. The expansion of the small-format stores follows a successful pilot of more than 20 smaller stores, the company said. Three additional small-format stores are set to open this fall, in San Angelo, Texas; Morgantown W.Va.; and Lenox, Mass. chainstoreage.com

Cybersecurity Layoffs
Layoffs Mount as Cybersecurity Vendors Hunker Down

With the vast majority of business leaders expecting a recession in 2023, cybersecurity firms are bolstering their operations and cash flow by laying off workers.

Cybersecurity firms Snyk and Cybereason separately announced significant layoffs during the last week of October, cutting their workforces by 198 and 200 workers and representing 14% and 17% of their workforces, respectively.

The two companies are the latest cybersecurity vendors to join a growing list of more than three dozen firms to pare their workforces in the past six months, as the global economy continues to flash signs of a slowdown and possible recession.

Industrywide Layoffs Loom

Snyk and Cybereason are not alone. In June, privacy and security firm OneTrust announced it would lay off 950 employees, or 25% of its workforce. In late May, cloud security firm Lacework announced it would layoff approximately 300 workers, or 20% of its head count.

Investments Become Scarcer

Cybersecurity vendors' retrenchment is not without cause. The vast majority (83%) of companies expect to contend with a recession in 2023, and most of those businesses are taking steps to prepare, according to the "2023 State of IT" report. IT budgets will likely stagnate: While half of businesses (51%) expect to increase IT budgets in 2023, a significant portion of those increases are due to inflation, not expanding purchases and services, the report stated.

Cybersecurity Jobs Still Strong

While specific cybersecurity vendor companies are cutting workers, overall the job market for cyber pros continues to be strong - a good sign for those workers who have been laid off. Businesses continue to look for cybersecurity experts, with the workforce growing 6% to 1.34 million in North America over the past 12 months, according to (ISC)2, a cybersecurity professional organization. darkreading.com

More Than Half of Small Businesses Shut Down After Cyberattacks
Essential ways for businesses to prioritize cybersecurity
Sixty-one percent of all cyberattacks were aimed at small businesses, especially those in the legal, insurance, retail, financial and health care sectors, according to Symantec. More than half of small businesses shut down within six months of suffering a cyberattack, according to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

If you're a small business owner or executive, there are a few fundamental ways businesses can prioritize cybersecurity in their everyday operation.

1. We train our employees on the latest cyberthreats and safeguards. One employee is all it takes to have a breach on your hands. Prioritizing cybersecurity knowledge sharing and regularly training employees keeps the best and latest cybersecurity threats top of mind and helps to minimize your business's vulnerability. In a U.S. State of Cybercrime survey, 42% of the respondents stated security awareness training helped to deter attacks and reduced losses by 300%.

Advertisement2. We factor security into every decision we make. No matter if it's your sales team, accounting, HR or information technology, prioritize security in every department and decision that occurs in your organization. This is not only important for the sake of your business, it's even more important for your customers and any information they have shared with you.

3. We put tight controls on account access. Two of the simplest and increasingly standard ways to manage access is by requiring secure passwords and multifactor authentication. Every site or service your employees use ought to have their one-of-a-kind login and password. A supplementary, yet necessary, layer of protection known as multifactor authentication prevents other people from logging in to your account and notifies you whenever they attempt to do so, which serves as a warning that it's probably time to change your password.

4. We choose partners that prioritize security as much as we do. Your cybersecurity management shouldn't end at your front door. By making cybersecurity a priority when considering and choosing your vendors you will create a more secure business ecosystem for you, your employees and your customers. So, whether it's a banking partner or a bakery, make sure the people you work with outside of your business have prioritized cybersecurity. bizjournals.com

Too Many Ransomware Victims Aren't Disclosing Attacks
Ransomware: Not enough victims are reporting ransomware attacks - and that's a problem for everyone

The true impact of ransomware is unclear because some victims aren't disclosing that they've been attacked.

Ransomware continues to be a significant cyber threat to businesses and the general public - but it's difficult to know the true impact of attacks because many victims aren't coming forward to report them.

The warning comes in the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Annual Review for 2022, which looks back at key developments and incidents in cyber crime over the last year, with ransomware described as an "ever present" threat and a "major challenge" to businesses and public services.

That's demonstrated by how the review details how in the 12-month period between 1 September 2021 and 31 August 2022 there were 18 ransomware incidents which needed a "nationally coordinated" response. These included attacks on a supplier to the National Health Service (NHS) and a ransomware attack against South Staffordshire Water.

However, the true impact of ransomware remains unclear, because the NCSC says that many organizations which fall prey to ransomware attacks aren't disclosing attacks.

That's despite the significant and disruptive consequences ransomware attacks can have not only for organizations which fall victim, but for wider society - which is why it's vital that cybersecurity is taken seriously and incidents are reported.

"Ransomware remains one of the most acute threats that businesses and organizations in the UK face," said Lindy Cameron, CEO of the NCSC.

Paying the ransom is discouraged, not only because it encourages cyber criminals by telling them that their attacks work, but also because there's also no guarantee that the attackers will hold up their end of the bargain. zdnet.com

Hackers Taking Over Services & Devices
Experian tool exposed partial Social Security numbers, putting customers at risk
An Experian product that allows organizations to verify customers' identity could be exploited to expose partial Social Security numbers, a researcher found through testing several organizations that use the product.

The researcher, who asked to be identified only by the online handle Lucky225, first detailed the security issue in a September Medium post after finding it when trying to register for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company. Lucky225 contacted CyberScoop after identifying three additional clients using the same function - two healthcare companies and a state health agency's vaccination verification system.

The problem with making it easy for bad actors to access a partial SSN is that those four digits provide a gateway for attackers to take over other services and devices. cyberscoop.com

Employee Surveillance Surges in the Remote-COVID Era
Minister says Ont. electronic monitoring policy 'first step,' experts say gaps remain

TORONTO - Many Ontario employers must now have a policy detailing how and why they electronically monitor their employees, but experts say more is needed to address what some call "horrendous gaps" in privacy protections for workers.

Many Ontario employers must now have a policy detailing how and why they electronically monitor their employees, but experts say more is needed to address what some call "horrendous gaps" in privacy protections for workers.

The provincial government passed legislation in April requiring employers with 25 or more workers to have an electronic monitoring policy within six months. The requirement kicked in on Tuesday and employers have 30 days to give workers a written copy.

Brenda McPhail, director of the privacy, technology and surveillance program at the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, said the legislation was a good start. "What this law does is provide some initial transparency," McPhail said in an interview. What it doesn't do is give workers the ability to challenge that monitoring.

Many workers in Ontario have limited privacy protections at a time when a record number of people are working from home and new technologies have allowed for "increasingly intrusive" surveillance, McPhail said.

Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic fuelled the market for workplace surveillance technologies, she said. Technologies such as keystroke monitoring and eye movement detectors are increasingly common, as companies look for ways to track the productivity of remote employees, she said.

"The potential invasiveness of an employer trying to watch you ... starts to feel more invasive for people who are working at home," McPhail said. nsnews.com

Canada's Remote Work Impact During COVID
Mental and physical health and well-being of canadian employees who were working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic
The rapid rise in the number of remote workers and the possibility for WFH continuing in the future signifies the importance of understanding the health and well-being of employees working from home over the course of the pandemic in Canada. We analyzed the changes in mental and physical health and well-being of employees who were working from home between two time points during the pandemic.

Our analyses showed significant changes in various aspects of employee mental and physical health and well-being. Burnout, stress, general mental health, and job insecurity levels significantly decreased between the two time periods. Work-related sedentary behaviour reduced over time; however, the average proportion of time spent sitting during work hours was more than 80% in both surveys. Employees received more help and feedback from their colleagues and experienced a better sense of community with their co-workers over time.

The findings can inform workers and organizations on the changes in mental and physical health and well-being of employees working from home during the pandemic. By understanding the changes in worker health and well-being, employers can develop effective strategies and implement policies that help protect employees' health and well-being. bmcpublichealth.biomedcentral.com

The Return of Mask Mandates in Canada?
Experts divided on mask mandates amid COVID resurgence
As hospitals across Canada face a resurgence of respiratory viruses, medical experts do not all agree that mask mandates are necessary to curb COVID-19 transmission in public settings.

Dr. Fahad Razak, former scientific director of Ontario's COVID-19 science table, said "unprecedented" viral infection strength justifies the implementation of mask mandates in public settings.

"The reason I think it's the right time to start mask mandates now is because we have very few options," he told CTV National News. "The problems with capacity, with beds, with staffing - those are going to take years to address."

Along with calling for mask mandates in public transit, grocery stores, and health-care settings, Razak said masking should be part of a wider strategy that also "encourages vaccination." ctvnews.ca

Canada Fraud Rate Poised to Surge
Fraud rates expected to spike in a recession, Equifax warns
Fraud rates in Canada may have dropped from the levels reached during the COVID-19 pandemic, but Equifax Canada warns that increased financial pressure on Canadians could lead to a spike in fraud.

The credit information agency said in a report released Tuesday that rising financial stress among Canadians, spurred by surging inflation, rapid rate hikes and recession concerns, may lead to increased levels of fraud. Equifax Canada's head of fraud and identity Carl Davies said first-party fraud in particular (instances where individuals themselves commit a fraudulent acts) are expected to rise in an economic downturn.

"We see that in times of financial stress, there comes the opportunity for increases in fraudulent behaviours, especially first-party fraud," Davies said in an interview with Yahoo Finance Canada, adding that the vast majority of first-party fraud involves falsifying income or providing conflicting information to lenders.

"When people get stressed because interest rates are going up and the cost of living is through the roof, there is more incentive for them to do that... Generally in times of financial uncertainty we typically expect to see those first-party fraud rates increase."

Generally fraud rates have fallen from pandemic levels. Canada's credit card fraud rate was down 13.5 per cent in the second quarter of this year compared to the same time in 2021, which saw a spike in digital fraud. The auto fraud rate fell 16.6 per cent in the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same time last year, as application volume dropped. Bank and deposit fraud also fell 16.6 per cent year-over-year, despite the fact that application volumes increased by 28.2 per cent, as government pandemic support programs ended. ca.finance.yahoo.com

Canadian Retailers Showing Resiliency
Majority of Canadian Small Businesses Doing Same or Better than 2 Years Ago
The majority of Canadian small businesses say they are now doing the same or better than they were two years ago before the pandemic hit, according to Scotiabank's third annual Path to Impact Report.

"As we see reinvigorated consumer demand, businesses are reporting positive sales and revenue numbers, and less cash flow concerns. While it's encouraging to see more optimism, the road ahead will pose new challenges," said Jason Charlebois, Senior Vice President, Small Business, with Scotiabank. "Small businesses are facing serious economic headwinds from inflation, rising interest rates, and labour market shortages.

"The resiliency of small businesses is showing through once again as most of them have been through such a difficult period over these last several years with lockdowns and health and safety restrictions as a result of the pandemic. The economy has been exceptionally strong over these last six months, (but it's) now turning."

Charlebois said the resilience of small businesses is clearly showing through despite the big economic headwinds and they're confident in being able to survive a recession and/or another wave of the pandemic. retail-insider.com

Amazon Workers Sound the Alarm Over Dangerous Working Conditions
Amazon Drivers Are at Risk of Dog Attacks. They're Looking for Answers

Drivers speak out after a driver is killed in a suspected dog attack during a delivery and point to policies that make it harder to stay safe.

Like many Amazon delivery drivers, Taylor was shaken after hearing last week about an Amazon driver in Missouri who was killed in a suspected dog attack. The man was found dead hours after delivering a package to a house where two large dogs had access to the yard, according to law enforcement.

He wasn't the only one. A forum on Reddit for Amazon drivers lit up after the incident, with people talking about scary dog encounters and debating how to get Amazon to take the problem seriously. Some discussed a movement to call out sick on Monday, or to refuse to deliver packages to back porches. CNET talked with three Amazon drivers, who work for small companies called delivery service partners that contract with Amazon, who said they have faced down scary dogs. While dogs can be aggressive to any postal carrier or delivery person, they said, Amazon's policies and reporting tools can make a dangerous situation worse.

Add fear of a dog attack to the growing list of burdens weighing on Amazon delivery drivers, who already face a punishing pace of work and a heightened risk of injury on the job, according to worker advocates (Amazon contested one group's estimate that one in five Amazon drivers were injured in 2021). The same system that penalizes drivers for falling behind prevents them from taking additional safety measures to protect themselves, they said, and flagging the issue with a customer ends up going nowhere. The drivers say Amazon doesn't give them the tools to avoid dangerous situations.

Amazon says it provides drivers with information about safety at each delivery, such as whether there's a dog at the residence. The company also says it offers live support to drivers who feel they're in an unsafe situation or have an incident to report, and that it lets drivers send a push notification when they're about to make a delivery to remind customers to secure pets, among other things. Additionally, Amazon says it will direct future deliveries to alternative locations, such as Amazon lockers.

As a result of its business model, Amazon isn't directly legally responsible for working conditions, but that doesn't mean the company shouldn't take responsibility, said Marissa Baker, a professor in the department of environmental and occupational health sciences at the University of Washington. cnet.com

China Takes Aim at Amazon
Chinese tech giants' push into U.S., Europe's markets sets up potential clash with Amazon

The move sets the two Chinese tech firms up for a clash with Amazon as they expand overseas.

Pinduoduo and TikTok owner ByteDance launched e-commerce websites overseas in the last few months, as they aim to take a crack at selling Chinese products to foreign buyers. The move sets the two Chinese technology firms up on a collision path with Amazon as they expand internationally.

Pinduoduo, one of China's biggest e-commerce companies, launched a U.S. shopping site called Temu last month, which sold products in categories from fashion to sports and electronics. Weeks later, ByteDance, the Beijing-headquartered owner of short video app TikTok, launched a fashion website named If Yooou. It is currently shipping to the U.K., Spain, Italy, Germany and France. cnbc.com

$17M Apple Kickback Scheme
San Jose, CA: DOJ: Former Apple Employee Admits Defrauding Apple Of More Than $17 Million
A former Apple employee has pleaded guilty to charges of mail and wire fraud related to plans to defraud the tech giant of more than $17 million, the US Attorney's Office for Northern California said Tuesday. Dhirendra Prasad, 52, pleaded guilty in federal court on Tuesday to charges of conspiracy to defraud and conspiracy to defraud the United States, US Attorneys said in a statement.

Prasad worked for Apple between December 2008 and December 2018 in the company's Global Service Supply Chain division. He was responsible for purchasing parts and services for Apple from various suppliers. Prasad said in a written statement that he began defrauding Apple in 2011 by engaging in theft, taking kickbacks and inflating bills. Two co-conspirators, Robert Gary Hansen and Don M. Baker, have been charged with involvement in Prasad's schemes and have admitted their involvement, US prosecutors said.

In one instance, Prasad said he had Apple ship motherboards to Baker's company CTrends in 2013. Baker had the components of the motherboards harvested and then shipped the components back to Apple, for which Prasad issued Apple invoices for purchase. After Apple paid the fraudulent bills, the two split the proceeds.

Prasad also admitted to engaging in tax fraud by forwarding illegal payments from Hansen to Prasad's creditors. He arranged for a shell company to issue fake invoices to CTrends to disguise Baker's illegal payments to Prasad, allowing Baker to claim hundreds of thousands of dollars in unjustified tax deductions, resulting in an IRS loss of more than $1.8 million. Prasad faces up to 20 years in prison for mail fraud and wire fraud and five years for fraud in the US. His sentencing hearing is scheduled for March 14, 2023. Prasad has also agreed to forfeit $5 million in assets he acquired with the proceeds of his plans, US prosecutors said.  justice.gov

Morgan County, GA: Camera system identifies vehicle believed to be used in massive shoplifting spree
Utilizing the recently installed Flock license plate reading system, Morgan County authorities arrested three women suspected of a massive shoplifting operation primarily targeting Tractor Supply Stores. According to Sgt. Chase Young, investigations division, Morgan County Sheriff's Office, merchandise taken from a gray Kia driven by one of the suspects exceeded $10,000 in retail value. Young said Morgan County authorities were alerted by a Madison Tractor Supply employee that three female suspects in a Kia had shoplifted Carhartt items from the store. According to police reports, the employee was alerted by a Tractor Supply employee in Milledgeville that the three women were suspected of shoplifting in Milledgeville and in Athens.

In Madison, the employee was able to retain the Louisiana license plate on the Kia, Young said. Young said authorities included the license tag number into the Flock system and the system showed several hits for captures in Athens. Young said at 5:30 p.m. on the same day, the Flock system notified authorities that the license tag had been recorded on Eatonton Highway traveling northbound. Young and Sgt. Chris Lash performed a traffic stop on the Kia at the Rainbow Convenience Store on Athens Highway/U.S. 441 at 5:50 p.m. Consequent to the stop, Young said, two of the suspects attempted to flee on foot and were stopped and detained after a brief chase in the parking lot. Inside the Kia, Young said, investigators found 11 garbage bags of merchandise that included Carhartt and Columbia clothing items. They also found a device designed "to take off the security device" on clothing items, Young said. morgancountycitizen.com

Kimyada Latoya Knight, 41, from Jacksonville, has pleaded guilty of credit card fraud. She is facing the maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison.

Shootings & Deaths

Knox County, TN: Standoff situation at Dollar General leads to 2 arrests, 1 death
Knox County Sheriff's Office officials were on the scene of a standoff at the Dollar General on Raccoon Valley Road Tuesday afternoon. The standoff was sparked by a traffic stop and involved three people, Knox County Sheriff Tom Spangler said. Deputies reportedly tried to stop the suspect near the Walmart on Clinton Highway, but the suspects fled the scene, taking backroads before entering the Dollar General, which had witnesses inside. While the suspect was inside the Dollar General, KCSO negotiators spoke over the phone to employees, who were inside an office, according to Spangler. Those employees were reportedly able to let KCSO know about where the suspects were inside the store by watching cameras. Of the three suspects, two were taken into custody. Spangler also said officers exchanged gunfire with the suspects, and one died from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound. "We don't think the officer hit based on the location [of the wound]," Spangler said. "Unfortunately, someone's life was taken today." Those in custody stand to face evading arrest charges, and Spangler said more would be coming.  wvlt.tv

San Francisco, CA: 73-year-old man beaten to death outside 7-Eleven

Baltimore, MD: Update: Police charge Security Guard with attempted murder in shooting at Royal Farms
Baltimore City police arrested a security guard in connection with a shooting Sunday that left a man in critical condition. City police said detectives arrested Kanisha Spence, 43, of Baltimore, on Sunday without incident, charging her with attempted second-degree murder. Police said they believe the shooting started as some kind of argument between the security guard and a 26-year-old man. Police said the victim was taken to a hospital, where he remains in grave condition. According to a court charging document, when police arrived on the scene, Spence told them she had just shot the victim who was in the doorway. Spence is an employee of a private security agency. The court record indicated Spence asked the victim to leave the store because he became frustrated and belligerent, but he returned moments later and tried to approach Spence. She then pointed her 9-mm Glock semi-automatic pistol at him several times. He left the store but when he came back and again tried to confront Spence, she again withdrew her weapon. While an unknown woman tried to restrain the victim, police said they believe Spence advanced toward the victim and shot him in the head. But when speaking to police about the incident, Spence claimed the victim lunged at her and she became scared and feared for her safety. wbaltv.com

Passion is probably the one trait all employers look for in every search and in every candidate. It's also the one ingredient that's hard to manufacture and almost impossible to fake. Certainly, energy level has a lot to do with it and virtually everyone can pick it up a notch when they need to. But passion is something that's deep and something money can't buy and quite frankly it's worth it's weight in gold because passion motivates people and it's what separates the good from the great. If you've got passion, let it show and, if you don't, try to go find it because every employer wants it.
