Preparing for Next
Week's RNC in Cleveland - Are Your Stores Ready?
Security fears mount ahead of GOP convention
Concerns over security in Cleveland have been ramping up ahead of next
week's Republican National Convention -- and are now further inflamed by
recent incidents of racial violence that have wracked the country.
With Donald Trump expected to formally accept the GOP's presidential
nomination, numerous protest groups for and against the billionaire
developer are preparing to launch dozens of rallies and marches
across the Ohio city, which is anticipating 50,000 visitors for the GOP's
And the blame game for whatever could
go wrong in the streets has already begun. Making matters worse,
Ohio's open-carry gun laws have the head of "Bikers for Trump" telling CNN
that Cleveland's streets could turn into "the O.K. Corral."
Doctors and surgeons at the Cleveland Clinic have also been told
to remain on call -- and prepared for a situation in which the
hospital is cut off from outside aid and supplies -- for the convention's
four days, according to a report from Stat News, which covers health care.
"We've hired special forces teams for security," the group's
executive director, Tim Selaty, told CNN, declining to specify who would
provide that extra security. "The Secret Service is well aware of what we're
doing and they're going to be provided with everything they need to work in
tandem with the local local law enforcement."
Secret Service and
Cleveland Police preparing for
Republican National Convention
The Secret Service and Cleveland police won't give specifics, but say
they'll be ready for anything and everything at the Republican National
Convention that starts next Monday. Thousands of officers from Cleveland and
some 70 other law enforcement agencies across the country are headed there
to help with security.
Half Of Downtown Cleveland Under Restrictions For
RNC - "But
Guns Are O.K."
The City of Cleveland is issuing permits to groups that want to demonstrate at
the convention, but protest areas will be hundreds of feet from the Quicken
Loans Arena, or "the Q," where the main events will take place.
The official event zone - where a long list of everyday items, like
glass bottles, will be banned - will blanket 1.7 square miles in downtown
Cleveland. However, guns will be allowed inside the event zone because Ohio is
an open-carry state, and state law overrules any regulations put into
place by the city. Firearms will not be allowed in the smaller secure zones
managed by the Secret Service, including the convention arena.
of the influx of people and the potential for large protests, Cleveland
is bringing in roughly 2,500 law enforcement officers from other cities to
bolster its own convention-dedicated force of about 500 officers.
City officials have devised
intricate plans to handle mass arrests should chaos
break out on the streets, identifying jail facilities to house more than 975
arrested protesters and keeping courts open for 20 hours daily to process cases.
And to guard against violence, the authorities have been collecting
intelligence on extremist groups to identify any possible threats. Over 50,000
people are expected to visit the city during the convention.
dozens of groups who are seeking to bring thousands of demonstrators here for
next week's Republican National Convention, there is one conspicuous by its
absence: the local franchise of Black Lives Matter. The Cleveland group, whose
affiliates throughout the country have been thrust into the national spotlight
for a demonstration that preceded last week's deadly ambush of five Dallas-area
police officers, has elected not to participate in the formal permitting process
for marches, access to downtown parks and speakers' podiums.
groups planning to protest and hold parades are two competing organizations -
America First Movement (pro-Trump) and
Stand Together Against Trump
(anti-Trump), each representing a combined total of 10,000 people. The
controversial Westboro Baptist Church will also be in attendance. The City of
Cleveland and the Cleveland Division of Police released
this document listing all names and organizations that plan to participate.
businesses stock up on security ahead of Republican National Convention
With just five days to go until the Republican National Convention, safety
and security on the top of everyone's minds. You'll see obvious things the
city is doing -- new see-through trash cans and no-scale fencing already
placed through downtown.
But businesses in and around the secure
zone, for the most part, have to fend for themselves -- and hope for the
best. Many business owners said they're taking a "wait and see" approach.
Lisa Rubin owns Jerold Optical on Huron Rd. and she is taking a
vacation. In the 70 years the store has been open, first owned by Rubin's
father, they have never taken a week off. The store already has tight
security already in place from past break-ins, with mounted cameras and
gates covering the large plate-glass windows.
Other businesses are
staying put and taking the matter into their own hands. One way is through a
pepper-spray gel called Safe Zone CM , manufactured by Chagrin Falls-based
Alternative Defense Strategies. The non-lethal gel is more targeted than
pepper spray, shoots from up to 25 feet away -- and burns and stings for up
to 45 minutes. After that, you're back to normal.
Lori O'Neill is the
company's president and said they've already supplied the product to several
downtown hotels, bars and restaurants that wanted extra help feeling safe
during the convention.
Packing Heat in
A number of groups have announced
plans to exploit Ohio's lenient open-carry gun law to flaunt their
military-style assault rifles and other weaponry in designated protest
zones, all in the name of protecting gun rights and free speech.
Cleveland, the Secret Service will not permit guns inside the convention
hall. But delegates have been talking of bringing their personal pistols to
other events. nytimes.com
Parties and Hotels all over the city are being used
Don't let the RNC approved protest map fool you. This is a
city wide event and they'll be scattered across the entire city. So all the
malls and shopping centers are potential soft targets and run a much higher
degree of risk then normally obviously.
Being that the Daily is
located here in Cleveland we'll be reporting live from a number of events
we'll be attending and have access to information that other reporting
channels may not have. Gus Downing

in Target fitting room
A transgender woman was charged in Idaho on Wednesday with voyeurism after
secretly videotaping a young woman trying on swimwear in the fitting room of
a Target retail store, authorities said. Shauna Patricia Smith, 43, who was
booked under her legal name of Sean Patrick Smith, appeared in Bonneville
County Court on a charge of video voyeurism and faces up to five years in
prison if convicted. The defendant told me that she makes these videos for
the 'same reason men go online to look at pornography,'" sheriff's detective
Zeb Graham wrote in a probable cause affidavit in the case.
Her case may add fuel to assertions by social conservatives that policies
allowing transgender people to use public restrooms and dressing rooms in
accordance with their gender identity could lead to abuse. reviewjournal.com

Retailers blame credit card
companies for delay in chip roll-out
Claim industry has been too slow to certify
the new card readers
Why are there so few chip-enabled
card readers at retailers around the country? It depends on who you ask. The
nation's retailers say they've done their jobs - it's the credit card companies
that have dropped the ball.
The National Retail Federation (NRF)
points to a survey that found 48% of retailers have implemented the new EMV
chip card system, or are expected to within weeks. A total of 86% said they
expected to be EMV compliant by the end of 2016.
57% of the retailers who
had not yet implemented the new system had installed the card readers, but were
waiting for certification by the credit card industry. About 60% said they had
been waiting for six months or longer.
NRF says those numbers are in
sharp contract to the statistics issued by the banking industry, which it says
has tried to shift blame for the slow start to retailers. The survey, NRF says,
found retailers are eager to begin using the chip card system since it protects
them from liability connected to fraud.
While retailers might feel
frustration at the pace, Visa maintains that progress has been "significant,"
with over 300 million chip cards in the hands of consumers and 1.2 million
retail locations now equipped to accept them. But the NRF said it is
disappointed the credit card industry has not provided enough personnel to make
sure certification happens in a timely manner. consumeraffairs.com

AKUA explains how IoT can
reduce cargo theft
AKUA LLC, a leader in
providing real time cargo monitoring and secured asset breach detection through
its secured IoT Gateway Data-as-a-Service, today announced it will present a
special topic to the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) on how IoT
(Internet-of-things) technology can be leveraged for improved container
Rachel Pollack, in a recent article ("Containing Cargo
Security" in the May/June 2016 issue of Scrap) described how theft of high-value
non-ferrous scrap cargo has been increasing since the late 2000s. In most cases,
the locks and seals on pilfered containers remain intact, and so it is difficult
to detect an intrusion until the cargo is weighed by the buyer and a percentage
of the cargo is found missing. "IoT technology can be an effective preventive
measure in reducing cargo thefts by providing a real-time breach detection to
pinpoint the exact time and location of an intrusion," said Neil Furukawa, CEO
of AKUA. "The evidence data can then be used to change shipping practices in
ways that will reduce the likelihood of theft."
FAA compromise bill drops
key drone privacy provisions
A Federal Aviation
Administration reauthorization bill that was passed by the Senate on Wednesday
has excluded key privacy provisions, including a requirement that commercial and
government users of drones must disclose if they collect personally identifiable
information of a person.
Civil rights groups have demanded drone privacy
regulations, in the wake of moves to liberalize the use of the unmanned aircraft
for commercial and other purposes. On Wednesday, the Electronic Privacy
Information Center said that the reauthorization had grounded privacy
safeguards, though its proposal to require remote identification of drones had
been included in the new bill.

Avoiding holiday horrors
- top tips for countering online counterfeiters
The latest MarkMonitor Online Barometer research revealed 75% of consumers
in the survey said they went online to search for discounted goods before
travelling. While they tend to focus their searches on genuine bargains (83
said they would not willingly buy counterfeit goods in order to keep up with
seasonal holiday trends) 10% of consumers purchased a product online that
subsequently turned out to be fake. Brands, regardless of industry, are
increasingly being targeted by counterfeiters and online fraudsters, which
has a negative impact on both their business and their customers.
Charlie Abrahams has developed the following best practices for brands to
help tackle this issue.
1. Attain global visibility
Before a brand can understand the scope of the threat posed by online
counterfeit sales, it must expose and quantify the problem. Counterfeiters
depend on technology to drive sales volumes so approach the monitoring
challenge with the same tools and leverage technology to form a complete and
accurate picture of the counterfeiting challenge that your brand faces.
2. Monitor points of promotion
While it's obviously
important to identify and shut down distribution channels, it's almost
certain that counterfeiters will regularly seek new sales venues. So it's
just as critical to monitor the online promotional channels used by these
3. Take proactive action
Counterfeiters obviously encounter more success when left to operate
unchallenged; they're also known to shift their energies to more passive
targets when brands visibly fight back. Once a brand understands where the
greatest threats lie, aggressive action is the best strategy.
4. Fight online counterfeit sales holistically
counterfeit sales are easier to address when the entire enterprise
participates. That means brand owners should set up a cross-functional task
force to address the issue in a coordinated, holistic manner. Because
fighting online counterfeiting requires attacking both promotional and
distribution channels, this group needs to address more facets of the
problem than seen in the physical world.
5. Let online
intelligence inform offline defence measures
measures - physical investigations, factory raids and other activities - can
be costly and time-consuming, it's critical to know where they should be
focused. Online intelligence can help identify the most egregious
infringers, so that offline defensive efforts can be focused where they'll
be most effective.
6. Act swiftly - and globally
Perhaps even more than it affects legitimate business, the proliferation of
international trade offers tremendous benefits to online counterfeiters.
While a domestic seller or manufacturer may seem like an easy first target,
brands have learned that it's more effective to launch global
anti-counterfeiting initiatives - and to get them underway expeditiously.
7. Educate your customers.
Your customers can be an
important ally in minimising sales of counterfeit goods with all its
associated costs. Educate your customers about the risks of buying from
unauthorised sources, and recruit them to join in the effort by reporting
suspicious goods and sellers.

City, OK: A new shoplifting law will raise the felony amount of merchandise
Legislators said it will keep
non-violent offenders out of jails. Retailers said the change will cause
larger thefts from their stores. Retailers and legislators disagree over a
law that will change how offenders are charged. HB 2751 was approved in
April and will go into effect November 1. The bill raises the amount of
merchandise that can be stolen before a theft is considered a felony. Now,
if merchandise valued at $500 is stolen, it is considered a felony. The bill
will raise that amount to $1,000. State leaders said the change will help
with overcrowded jails, because many of those in Oklahoma jails are
convicted of non-violent crimes. Retailers, however, said the change will
give thieves the opportunity to steal more and hurt their business. Local
business owners said they worry the change could cause them trouble. Though
the bill goes into effect in November, two state questions that could land
the change in the Oklahoma Constitution are on the ballot. If Question 780
and Question 781 are passed, the bill cannot be challenged or changed.

Hancock County, OH: Circle K
District Manager charged with $240,000 theft, court orders $150,000 in
A former Circle K district manager
was sentenced Wednesday to five years of community control sanctions and ordered
to make restitution after stealing more than $150,000 from the company over
several years. Donna F. Rexroad, 51, of Dunkirk was sentenced by Hancock County
Common Pleas Judge Reginald Routson for grand theft, a third-degree felony. She
was also placed on 90 days of electronic monitoring. Assistant Hancock County
Prosecutor Alex Treece said the theft exceeded $240,000, but the parties agreed
on $150,000 in restitution, the amount that could be proven. Rexroad must pay an
estimated $30,000 a year to Circle K. Judge Routson said the amount of
restitution is "substantial" and "one of the highest orders of restitution the
court has considered."

grabs on the rise in Sacramento region; uptick in smash-and-grab burglaries
of gun stores
Two gun stores were targeted
for smash and grab burglaries early Wednesday morning in the greater
Sacramento region. During the break-in at Rocklin Armory, thieves netted an
AK-47. Police believe the same vehicle, a Honda CRV, was used to smash
through the doors of STS Guns in Folsom. "We noticed consistencies in those
burglaries and we are following up," said Graham Barlowe, Sacramento's
resident agent in charge for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and
There appears to be a link between the burglaries
Wednesday and other recent smash-and-grab crimes in the Sacramento area.
"The vehicle drove into the front of the business," Rocklin Police
Department spokesperson Trent Jewell said. "It's similar to what we had at
Nor Cal Gun Vault several months ago. We probably think it is related to
that." Back in May, criminals used a car to smash through the front door of
Nor Cal Gun Vault and stole more than 100 guns. Just a week later, thieves
used the same method to break through two gun stores in Elk Grove.

Peabody, MA: Two
suspects in $120,000 Credit Card Fraud Scheme caught by Facebook locator
Salem Superior Court judge on Wednesday refused to increase the bail for
two women charged in a $120,000 credit card fraud scheme that targeted
stores all over the region. The women were arrested by Peabody police in
February 2015, after they left Long's Jewelers after trying to purchase an
$8,000 Rolex watch with two different credit cards. The pair was already on
the radar of Long's, because days earlier, they had attempted similar
purchases at the Long's stores in Natick and Burlington. Police found 43
"cloned" credit cards. An investigation would also reveal they'd used the
cards to purchase other jewelry and items, including a large number of
high-end 4K Ultra HD televisions from various B.J.'s Wholesale Club
locations. Transactions were also made at Gucci and Neiman Marcus.
Prosecutors obtained a warrant for records from the social media site
Facebook, seeking that company's records of locations for the women during
the time they were conducting the fraudulent transactions. It turns out a
Facebook mobile application was recording the location of the women every
three minutes, the prosecutor said.

The "rumor mill" is a very treacherous and unforgiving world of fact and
fiction. That at times is filled with innuendos, accusations, untruths, and
what ever gets added to the information being talked about regarding
companies and people. Participating in it is human nature and we all know
third party information leaves a lot to be desired. So the rule of thumb
should be to be cautious about believing, try not to form an opinion until
you've heard both sides, understand the agendas that every one has, and most
importantly be careful about what you say.
