Protests & Violence

FBI, DHS Issue Joint Warning About March 4
Authorities on high alert as new QAnon date approaches Thursday

Security and defense officials are testifying Wednesday before two Senate committees about their preparedness for the Jan. 6 mob attack on Capitol Hill in the face of concerns that extremists could gather there again on Thursday.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security issued a joint intelligence bulletin highlighting the belief among some members of the conspiracy-theory group QAnon that former President Donald Trump "will be inaugurated on 4 March or will return to power on 20 May with the help of the U.S. military." The memo, released Tuesday and reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, says domestic violent extremists remain inspired by "election fraud and other conspiracy theories associated with the presidential transition."

Citing FBI reporting, the memo says extremists discussed plans as of late February to take control of the Capitol and remove Democratic lawmakers "on or about 4 March" and "discussed aspirational plans to persuade thousands to travel to Washington, DC to participate." March 4 was the nation's Inauguration Day until 1937.

The agencies recommend that federal, state and local counterterrorism and police officials "remain vigilant in light of the persistent threat posed by [domestic violent extremists] and their unpredictable target selection."

Roughly 5,200 National Guard members are helping provide security in Washington as of this week, a National Guard spokesman said Monday, adding they are expected to depart later this month. Their numbers have gradually been reduced since authorities deployed roughly 26,000 Guard members to protect President Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20. wsj.com

D.C. Guard chief says 'unusual' restrictions slowed deployment of backup during Jan. 6 Capitol riot
The commanding general of the D.C. National Guard told lawmakers Wednesday how restrictions the Pentagon placed on him in the run-up to Capitol riot prevented him from more quickly sending forces to help quell the violence.

Maj. Gen. William J. Walker said he didn't receive approval to change the D.C. Guard's mission and send his forces to the Capitol on Jan. 6 until three hours and 19 minutes after he first received an emotional call from the Capitol Police chief requesting urgent backup.

Walker described the Pentagon's restrictions as "unusual," noting that he didn't have such limitations last June when the D.C. Guard was tasked with responding to local racial justice protests. Walker told lawmakers that had he not been restricted, he could have sent 155 soldiers to the Capitol hours earlier. washingtonpost.com

Two Months Into 2021: 67 Security Officers Have Died on Duty
17 Murdered, 38 Died from Covid

Sixty days into the year and sixty-seven security officers have died on duty. And there has been an unusually high number of lethal force usage by security officers during the same period. During the months of January and February, 17 Security Officers Were Murdered while on duty. All but two died from gunfire. Five officers were shot repeatedly by their attackers.

Thirty-eight others have died from the Coronavirus during the first two months of the year. Three other security officers died in vehicle accidents, three others died from unknown causes, one officer drowned, and five security officers died on duty as a result of a medical emergency. Twenty-one other security officers were shot while on duty and six remain hospitalized. privateofficer.com

23 Law Enforcement Deaths in February; Covid Was Leading Cause
Last month, 23 law enforcement officers died in the line of duty. The cause breakdown for February is: 10 COVID, 6 gunfire, 4 auto-related, 1 heart attack, 1 stabbing, and 1 duty-related illness. This means that the year-to-date total for line of duty deaths is 63, an 187% increase from the same time last year. odmp.org

DOJ Indicts Looting Gang Leader
Chicago Man Charged in Federal Court With Inciting Rioting Last Summer

A Chicago man has been charged in federal court with inciting rioting involving multiple incidents of property damage and looting in the city last summer.

JAMES MASSEY, 22, is charged with one count of using a facility of interstate commerce to incite a riot. According to a criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Chicago, Massey on Aug. 9, 2020, posted multiple videos and messages on Facebook calling for people to travel to downtown Chicago to engage in property damage and looting, the complaint states. In one of the messages, a Facebook user allegedly stated to others in the group, "We like 13 cars deep."

In the early morning hours of Aug. 10, 2020, Massey and numerous individuals damaged and looted multiple businesses throughout Chicago - including a marijuana dispensary, a retail store, a convenience store, and a cell phone store. justice.gov

Texas, Mississippi & Louisiana Join States Lifting COVID Restrictions
States are lifting pandemic restrictions before health experts think is wise
By now, many of the basic facts about how Covid-19 spreads are clear. People tend to become infected by inhaling droplets that come from the mouths and noses of others. Crowded indoor spaces - where infected droplets can linger in the air - are the most dangerous places. They are particularly dangerous when people are not wearing masks.

Yet consider some of the new policies that state governments have put in place this week:

Texas and Mississippi both announced they would lift their mask mandates (following Iowa and Montana, which did so last month) and allow businesses to operate at full capacity.

Massachusetts removed capacity limits on restaurants.

South Carolina will allow gatherings of more than 250 people. nytimes.com

Texas Opens Up at 100%, Leaving Safety to Businesses & Individuals
Texas Governor Lifts Covid-19 Mask Mandate, Business Restrictions

Texas businesses will be able to operate at full capacity and state residents will no longer be required to wear masks to visit them, Gov. Greg Abbott said Tuesday. Texans will be in charge of managing their own individual safety, Abbott said, using practices learned during the pandemic.

The easing of restrictions will take effect on March 10. Starting next Wednesday, the mask mandate will be lifted and all businesses will be allowed to open at 100% of capacity for the first time in nearly a year. While Abbott noted that businesses can still choose to limit occupancy or require masks, the change opens the door to potentially massive social gatherings, including at sports stadiums, concert halls and other large venues.

After about a monthlong shutdown last year, Texas allowed businesses to reopen to varying degrees beginning in May. Mr. Abbott instituted a mask mandate in July, as Covid-19 cases and hospitalizations increased. More than 44,000 Texans have died of Covid-19. The state has logged nearly 33,000 new cases in the past week, an increase from mid-February, but a significant decrease from January.

Mr. Abbott's move, affecting some 29 million residents of the second-largest state, comes after some smaller states, such as Iowa, Montana and North Dakota, have removed mask mandates. On Tuesday, Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves also said he would be dropping the state's mask mandate and all business-capacity restrictions. Mr. Reeves said hospitalizations from the virus have decreased. wsj.com dallasnews.com

Retailers will require masks even if Texas governor won't
D-FW stores and businesses scramble after repeal of COVID-19 restrictions

Major retailers are deciding how to respond to Texas Gov. Greg Abbott's announcement that he is lifting mask mandates in the state. Chains including Albertsons, H-E-B are Tom Thumb will require workers to wear face coverings while asking, but not requiring, customers to do the same.

Target and others will require both associates and shoppers to wear masks in stores.

"Employers will face more resistance from their workforce as they continue to follow CDC guidance," said Michael Correll, a labor and employment attorney at Reed Smith. "Employers will also need to rally to better support their customer-facing employees, who may now face more hostile customer reactions to 'voluntary' safety rules." retailwire.com

White House Accelerates Vaccine Rollout
Biden Vows Enough Vaccine 'for Every Adult American' by End of May

Pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. agrees to help manufacture rival Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine, in a deal partly brokered by the White House

President Biden said on Tuesday that the United States was "on track" to have enough supply of coronavirus vaccines "for every adult in America by the end of May," accelerating his effort to deliver the nation from the worst public health crisis in a century. He also said he wanted all teachers to receive at least one shot by the end of this month.

In a brief speech at the White House, Mr. Biden said his administration had provided support to Johnson & Johnson that would enable the company and its partners to make vaccines around the clock. The administration had also brokered a deal in which the pharmaceutical giant Merck & Co. would help manufacture the new Johnson & Johnson coronavirus vaccine. nytimes.com

Stimulus Proposal Narrowed in the Senate
White House agrees to tighten eligibility rules for $1,400 direct payments

President Joe Biden has agreed to a faster phase-out of the $1,400 stimulus checks in the next relief package, according to two Democratic sources. Some moderate Democrats in the Senate have been urging Biden and Democratic leaders to further target the direct payments. The new proposal begins phasing out the checks the same income levels as the House bill - $75,000 for individuals, $112,500 for heads of households and $150,000 for joint filers. yahoo.com

Retailers Form Hiring Alliances to Help Tens of Thousands Find Jobs
When pandemic-related shutdowns devastated some industries and turbocharged others last spring, dozens of employers joined forces to match idled workers with open jobs. Companies with urgent staffing needs in industries such as healthcare, grocery and e-commerce formed large-scale matchmaking partnerships with companies in hard-hit sectors such as hospitality, retail and airlines to recruit workers who had been furloughed or laid off.

Almost a year later, the partnerships have matched many tens of thousands of workers with open jobs, including retailers like Amazon, Walgreens, Albertsons and others. Labor specialists say they could be a model for future hiring alliances among employers.

For example, CVS Health Corp. formed hiring partnerships with 64 U.S. employers-including Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. and Gap Inc.-as it raced to fill open positions in its stores, warehouses and call centers amid a coronavirus-fueled surge in its business last year. The pharmacy and insurance giant created dedicated hiring websites for its partners' displaced workers and streamlined the selection process for some jobs. Of the more than 100,000 people whom CVS recruited from March to December last year, about 3,700 came from the new partnerships, according to a spokeswoman. wsj.com

AWS director sues Amazon, alleging systemic racism in corporate office
A senior manager at Amazon Web Services has filed suit against the company alleging race and gender discrimination, saying that she was underpaid, denied promotions, and sexually assaulted at the firm.

Charlotte Newman, who is Black, began working at AWS in 2017 in a public policy role. Prior to joining Amazon, she served as a congressional advisor, including a senior role advising US Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). From the start, she alleges, she was "de-leveled" - hired at a position below the one for which she applied and for which she was qualified - and undercompensated as a result.

Underpaying Black employees through de-leveling is routine at Amazon, the lawsuit alleges. "When a company's top leaders traffic in stereotypes of Black employees and fail to condemn intimidation tactics, managers farther down the chain will take note of that modus operandi and behave accordingly," the filing reads.

During the 2017-2019 time frame, no Black employees were hired at or promoted to the director level ("L8") within Amazon's public policy division, the suit alleges. Neither were any Black employees hired at the next level down, L7, until December 2018. Newman had applied for an L7 position but was hired at L6; the suit alleges that she did the work of an L7 job for several years before receiving a promotion to that level in fall 2019.

While working for Amazon, Newman alleges that she faced multiple instances of colleagues overtly engaging in racial stereotypes to discuss her or her work, describing her as "just scary," "too direct," or looking "like a gorilla." arstechnica.com reuters.com

$88M of LAPD's Budget Diverted to Local Communities of Color
L.A. City Council approves new spending plan after overriding Garcetti veto

In a rare move, the L.A. City Council voted to override Mayor Eric Garcetti's veto of a spending plan for local communities of color that diverted funds from the LAPD budget. Councilmembers passed a more detailed proposal that allocates millions for policing alternatives, including community intervention officers, as well as homeless prevention and services and a universal basic income pilot program.

Under the program, the greatest share of the money will go to districts with the greatest number of census tracts experiencing poverty and unemployment. Nearly $50 million would be distributed to three of the council's 15 districts, all of which take in portions of South Los Angeles.

An additional $7.75 million would go to a fund dedicated to paying for an "unarmed response" to homelessness and nonviolent calls, according to budget officials. latimes.com

2021 Could See Record Retail Sales Growth but Economy Still Hinges on COVID
A wide array of economic indicators point toward potentially record retail sales growth during 2021, but the coronavirus pandemic remains the biggest challenge for the year.

"There is no doubt the economy is positioned for growth in 2021, but how much growth comes down to a single non-economic force - the coronavirus," National Retail Federation Chief Economist Jack Kleinhenz said. "I am optimistic about improving macroeconomic conditions as COVID-19 infections decline and distribution of vaccines becomes more widespread. Yet the road is never straight, and we have challenges ahead. The pandemic remains the largest uncertainty and the biggest risk the economy faces in 2021."

NRF forecast last week that 2021 retail sales - excluding automobile dealers, gasoline stations and restaurants - will grow between 6.5 percent and 8.2 percent over 2020 to between $4.33 trillion and $4.4 trillion. That could top 2020's growth of 6.7 percent, which broke the previous record of 6.3 percent set in 2004 despite the pandemic. nrf.com

Patchwork of State Privacy Laws Growing
Virginia Follows California as 2nd State to Pass Comprehensive Data Privacy Law

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) signed the Consumer Data Protection Act on Tuesday, making Virginia the second state in the U.S. to pass a comprehensive data privacy law.

Gov. Ralph Northam just made Virginia the second state in the nation to adopt its own data protection rules. The data privacy legislation signed into law on Tuesday, known as the Consumer Data Protection Act, will allow residents of the commonwealth to opt out of having their data collected and sold, similar to California's CCPA law that went into effect last year. Under the new law, Virginia resident also can see what data companies have collected about them, and correct or delete it.

It had broad support from the tech industry, including Amazon, which is building an Arlington, Va., headquarters. The law will go into effect in 2023 and applies to all businesses that control or process the proposal data of at least 100,000 consumers, derive more than 50 percent gross revenue from the sale of personal data or process the personal data of at least 25,000 consumers.

Key takeaways:
● The Virginia law is widely viewed as more industry-friendly than the California provision.
● Virginia's new law signals that states increasingly are taking on tech regulation after years of lack of action in Congress.
A growing patchwork of state laws could create more pressure on Congress to move forward on federal privacy legislation.
Privacy advocates largely see the Virginia law as a mixed bag. washingtonpost.com thehill.com

AI Supremacy: Russia, China Could Edge Out US, Experts Warn

Cyberattack and Disinformation Risks From AI Loom Large, Commission Warns

AdvertisementThe U.S. is in danger of falling behind China and Russia in developing artificial intelligence technologies and countering cybersecurity threats that could develop as AI use becomes more widespread, according to a newly released report from the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence.

The 750-page report offers more than 60 recommendations for how the U.S. could become the world leader in developing and deploying AI technologies as well as how to counter threats that leverage AI, including disinformation campaigns and cyberattacks by nation-states. The commission recommends many of the same changes to national policy that the Cyberspace Solarium Commission advocated in a 2020 report.

"AI is deepening the threat posed by cyberattacks and disinformation campaigns that Russia, China and others are using to infiltrate our society, steal our data and interfere in our democracy," according to the report's executive summary. "The limited uses of AI-enabled attacks to date represent the tip of the iceberg." govinfosecuritiy.com

National Cyber Response Network
Policy Group Calls for Public-Private Cyber-Defense Program

Creating plausible scenarios of cyberattacks launched by nations such as China or Iran, or by domestic terrorists and hacktivists, a policy group has concluded that too many roadblocks hinder the effective response to a major attack on US government agencies or private industry.

In a report published last week, the New York Cyber Task Force (NYCTF) - a group of policy makers, private industry, and consultants - recommended that the United States create a
National Cyber Response Network, linking together existing government and industry groups into collaborative network that could speed response to any attack. The task force, sponsored by Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA), brings together government cyber experts, policymakers, and private industry professionals to address the national cybersecurity challenges that the United States will face in the future. darkreading.com

Crime & Violence on the Rise in Canada

'It's the Wild West' in Vancouver
Grocery store owner says violent incidents out of control
Surveillance video from a downtown Vancouver grocery store has captured what the owner says is another example of the increase in violence his staff is facing every day.

On Monday night around 8 p.m. a fight broke out between a man and staff at the IGA store on Robson Street after the man had allegedly tried to steal some coffee.

"It's an ongoing topic of conversation, we've been trying to teach de-escalation. It used to be, 'Just recover the product and let the people go,' but now it's become much more dangerous." "We are mindful that it's not just us and our staff have to look after themselves."

"We have seen this in the past year, especially in the downtown core, the type of violence that comes with this theft," she said. "This is one of the reasons that we did launch Project Arrow. We were noticing an uptick in shoplifting and shoplifting with violence."

Just last week, the Vancouver police announced they arrested 130 suspects and seized 35 weapons in a crackdown on violent shoplifting incidents in downtown Vancouver. globalnews.ca

Vancouver Burglaries at 10-Year High
'Massive' security concerns surround vacant space

With Vancouver business burglaries at a 10-year high, protecting commercial real estate forced vacant by the pandemic requires 'boots on the ground'

"Security is a huge concern right across the country," he said, noting that break-ins, squatters, vandalism and graffiti have all increased during the pandemic.

Vancouver Police Department data shows 966 break-ins were reported in the city's central business district in 2020, up 21 per cent from 2019. Across the city, business burglaries hit a 10-year high of 2,789 last year.

Mark Forward, vice-president, property management division, for Paladin Security, Vancouver's largest security agency, said there was a sharp spike in downtown break-ins at the start of the pandemic, including thefts from shuttered retail outlets.

Forward said many businesses have since been "hardening the premises" with locks, hoarding, improved lighting, alarms, surveillance cameras and stepped-up security patrols. This, along with colder weather, has reduced break-ins, though vandalism and squatters remains a concern. westerninvestor.com

Crime-Fighting Partnership
Edmonton Police Foundation partnering with MacEwan to
prevent liquor store thefts
Thefts from liquor stores are on the rise, not just in Edmonton, but across the province. The Edmonton Police Foundation is now working with MacEwan University to draw attention to the problem, while renewing calls to outfit liquor stores with ID scanners at store entrances.

"The problem is out of control, especially in the province of Alberta," said Taylor Mann of Alcanna Inc. In 2019, nearly 9,600 stores were targeted. That's three times as many as 2018. Alcanna Inc. owns some of those stores.

"We've had loss prevention officers stabbed in the face; we've had bear spray deployed multiple times. A lot of time it's completely unprovoked as well and that's where it becomes quite concerning," Mann said.

"It's not just one person going in and stealing one bottle, it's organized crime groups going in and stealing large amounts of alcohol," said Heather Braid of MacEwan University.

The university has now teamed up with the Edmonton Police Foundation to create an awareness campaign, asking bars that buy from legitimate sources to display a badge. Awareness is just one way to stop the problem. Many bottles and cans are equipped with tracking devices, according to police.

Those successes are a 94 per cent drop in thefts at the three Edmonton stores that are using entrance identification systems. Six more stores in Edmonton and four in Calgary will start using the ID entrance systems in the coming weeks. edmonton.ctvnews.ca

Edmonton campaign plants actors in liquor store to help educate against theft
In an effort to make real change several community groups gathered at an Edmonton liquor store for an educational surprise.

"We want to give people a real glimpse into what's going on behind the scenes of liquor store thefts, it's really not an issue of one person coming in stealing one bottle, it's organized crime groups coming in and stealing a lot of alcohol," Heather Baird, MacEwan University's Social Innovation Institute academic lead, said.

To visually show that, actors hid behind a cooler and when a customer opened the door, the actor would perform several skits about the significance of liquor theft.

The show is part of the legally-sourced pledge program, a new initiative by the Edmonton Police Foundation in partnership with liquor store giant Alcanna and MacEwan's Social Innovation Institute to lower liquor store thefts.  globalnews.ca

Thieves Targeting Bitcoin machines?
With the high price of Bitcoin, are Sask. criminals cashing in?
One of the most recent was a smash-and-grab job reported to the Prince Albert Police Service. It was reported that two male suspects were responsible for the break-in and theft in the 1400 block of Central Avenue. Upon further investigation, officers noted a Bitcoin machine had been pried open and the contents were stolen.

Spurgeon told Global News no customers were impacted by the theft and no data was compromised as it is not stored in HoneyBadger's kiosks. He added it was an older ATM that has now been upgraded with a new model that has increased security features. globalnews.ca

COVID Update

The Unintended Cost of Prolonged Shutdowns
Shorter, more frequent lockdowns could lead to fewer COVID-19 cases, study finds
A new study out of Toronto suggests that shorter, but more frequent lockdowns, could lead to fewer cases of COVID-19. The study, conducted by researchers at York University in Toronto, found that Ontario's current practice of initiating lockdowns for longer periods of time may actually decrease public compliance with these restrictions.

Using a model that reacts to "realistic social dynamics," including compliance with physical distancing and self-isolation, researchers reported that social fatigue and individual costs can "diminish the effectiveness of lockdowns and lead to worse health outcomes."

"What we found is that as these restrictions prolong, those extra costs and risks start to outweigh the risk of getting sick and so people begin to relax, and so it's not that surprising to see that some of these effects are starting to wane," Moyles said.

The study noted that shutdowns need to be "optimized" by taking into account individual costs of lockdowns to reduce COVID-19 infections. ctvnews.ca

Planning for Canada's Post-COVID Retail Comeback
Brick-and-Mortar Will Continue to Be Critical for Retail in Canada Post-Pandemic: Claude Sirois

By Sean Tarry - Courtesy of Retail-Insider.com

As the consequences and repercussions of the COVID-19 global pandemic continue to rage on, retailers across Canada and around the world are pivoting - shifting their focus toward digital enhancements in order to address some of the more predominant trends that have resulted.

A significant lack of footfall, combined with a synchronistic acceleration in online shopping by the consumer, has forced many within the industry to make some necessary adjustments toward the support of their e-commerce platforms and the rise in online spending. In many cases, and quite rightly given current circumstances, considerations related to the digital retail experience have taken precedence over that of the physical in-store environment.

However, as we collectively, with cautious optimism, progress nearer to a successful vaccine rollout and post-pandemic world that offers us at least a glimpse of normalcy, brick-and-mortar retail is set to play a more critical role than ever in anchoring and strengthening the overall retail experience.

Between $5,000 and $10,000 worth of collectibles were stolen from Rebel Comics, 521 1 St. W, in the early hours of Feb. 28. Devin Petitclerc, of Rebel Comics, believes two people were involved in the break-in. They smashed through the main window at approximately 1:45 a.m. this morning and he believes they must have been in the store before because they appeared to know exactly where to look.

They were among the most valuable items in the store. Petitclerc has been spreading word of the break-in and expressing their disappointment via social media. cochranenow.com

New Pandemic Pastime
Young people are filling, then abandoning, e-commerce shopping carts
The internet equivalent of window-shopping isn't new. People have been picking out items and abandoning carts for years. But the pastime appears to have increased due to the coronavirus pandemic, as consumers are in need of something to do and less willing to shell out money.

It's "definitely a pandemic thing," she added.

Ryczek isn't alone. While describing their habit in interviews this month, people compared it to therapy, a replacement for browsing around a store, or just another way to pass time while stuck at home.

Brenna Shepherd told CNBC that she's increased her time spent digital window shopping during the coronavirus pandemic, using it as a way to spend her days or procrastinate on school work.

The trend of mindlessly scrolling online, adding items to a cart and then abandoning them isn't necessarily the worst thing for retailers, since they're getting eyeballs on products and those could lead to potential sales, explained Dennis Hegstad.

His company, LiveRecover, helps e-commerce companies re-capture shoppers who've abandoned their carts by sending text message reminders to customers who get far enough into the checkout process to include a phone number. cnbc.com

Biden vs. Amazon

Inside Joe Biden's decision to dive into the Amazon union drive
Joe Biden's endorsement of the right of workers at an Amazon facility in Alabama to unionize was the culmination of weeks of private talks with labor organizers and Democratic officials who viewed the standoff as an early test of the president's commitment to their cause.

Unions are hoping the message, delivered by a video over Twitter, is a sign that organized labor will have staying power in the Biden White House and that it fuels support for a broader overhaul of federal labor law and expansion of union rights.

"If these workers can pull this off, it's going to be the David and Goliath of the 21st century in American labor relations," said Levin, who was sharply critical of Amazon's tactics in the drive and plans to travel to Alabama this week to support the workers. politico.com

Pittsburgh, PA: Man Pleads Guilty in Mystery Shopper Fraud Scheme
A resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of fraud conspiracy, Acting United States Attorney Stephen R. Kaufman announced today.. Robert Shon Jackson, 45, pleaded guilty to one count before Chief United States District Judge Mark R. Hornak. In connection with the guilty plea, the court was advised that from around June 2013 to around October 31, 2013, Jackson participated in a Nigerian "mystery shopper" fraud scheme in which victims were falsely led to believe that they were being employed to anonymously evaluate products and services. After being recruited by the fraudsters, the victims unwittingly received counterfeit U.S. Postal Service money orders and checks, which they believed were provided to fund their evaluation purchases. The victims were told to deposit the instruments, keep a small portion of the funds for themselves, and wire the remainder to another individual who they believed was another mystery shopper, but was in actuality a co-conspirator. The counterfeit instruments were later returned to the bank, and the victims were charged for the funds they had deposited and additional fees.

The court was further advised that Jackson received bulk shipments of counterfeit USPS money orders sent from overseas, approximately 1,820 money orders in total, valued at approximately $1,787,771.40, along with counterfeit checks. Jackson also received mailing labels with the names and addresses of victims to whom he was to send the counterfeit instruments. Jackson would mail counterfeit money orders and checks to the victims along with "mystery shopper" instructions directing them to check their email accounts for additional instructions. The victims would be emailed instructions to wire funds to Jackson, his wife, and other accomplices. Jackson used false return names and addresses on the mailings of counterfeit instruments. Jackson would then receive funds from the victims by wire, then himself wire a portion of the proceeds to co-conspirators in Nigeria. Jackson kept a portion of the funds as his payment. The losses associated with Jackson's offense totaled $28,461.00. justice.gov

Update: Columbus, GA: Suspect in double homicide outside Family Dollar
store in custody
Two families are mourning the lives of loved ones killed in broad daylight Tuesday at a Family Dollar store on Floyd Road in Columbus. Police believe 25-year-old Quartez Thomas is the person responsible for the deaths of 30-year-old Jasmine Trice and 28-year-old Kiera Williams. They were shot and killed in a car at the Family Dollar store. Police say Thomas was an ex-boyfriend of Williams. Williams' six-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the car at the time of the shooting. According to Trice's friend, Erika Crawford, Trice died while trying to help out a friend in need who feared for her and her child's safety. "She was telling me about how the guy shot Kiera's mom's house up the night before," said Crawford. "And I just was like, 'be careful with that.' 'Don't get in the middle of that.' I know they had already called the police and the dude kept calling Kiera and the dude kept calling Kiera texting her and telling her he was going to kill her. And he kept calling from all kind of different numbers, and that's all I know." wtvm.com

Chicago, IL: 5 former Chicago Postal employees among 11 charged in theft, fraud conspiracy
Five former U.S. Postal Service employees are among 11 individuals charged with conspiring to steal credit cards and other financial instruments from the mail. Federal authorities uncovered the 18-month conspiracy through a joint investigation titled Operation Cash on Delivery. The former USPS employees, who at the time worked as mail carriers in the Chicagoland area, are alleged to have stolen credit cards and other financial instruments from the mail and provided them to co-conspirators in exchange for cash or other items, according to a 20-count indictment unsealed Thursday in federal court in Chicago. Two of the defendants unlawfully obtained USPS customers' personal identifying information, including dates of birth and Social Security numbers, which was then used to fraudulently activate the stolen credit cards and make purchases at various retailers, including Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Walmart and Meijer, the charges allege. ice.gov

As the old expression goes, one person can make a difference and you could help a fellow LP executive grow beyond their own expectations and, in having helped the number of people we've helped in our mere search role, I for one can say there is no better feeling in the world than helping someone reach beyond!
