Ex-workers claim CVS told them to watch minority shoppers

Four former CVS theft investigators say their supervisors ordered them to target minority shoppers in some New York City stores, according to a federal lawsuit filed against the nation’s second-largest drugstore chain.

The former employees said that supervisors routinely told them to racially profile black and Hispanic shoppers even when there was no indication that those people might steal. The lawsuit, filed Wednesday, states that the supervisors never gave similar instructions regarding white shoppers.

The complaint, which seeks class status, claims CVS intentionally targets and racially profiles shoppers based on the “ill-founded institutional belief … minority customers are criminals and thieves.”

Don’t notice things.

Ever.

Koster drops the 2014 report on racial profiling in the state.

If Ferguson’s race gap is less than the state’s race gap, then it’s mostly because after August 9, the Ferguson PD deliberately held back.

Race may have played a role in the incident…

That’s where the important St. Louisans live.

Therefore, expect to hear more and louder noise about racial profiling in Ferguson.





Isn’t That What We’re Supposed to Do?

DOJ ‘Monitoring’ Arkansas Gun Range Owner Who Banned Muslims

The Department of Justice is “monitoring” Gun Cave Indoor Firing Range owner Jan Morgan in Hot Springs, Arkansas, for banning Muslims from shooting in the facility.

At that time, Fox News reported that Morgan decided to ban Muslims after “two customers she deemed suspicious” showed up in September. Since that time, she has excluded those “she believes to be Muslim based upon their names.” She said, “We are dealing in lethal firearms. I am not going to let a Nazi shoot in here, or a Ku Klux Klan member in here, either.”

Breitbart News reported that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking him to intervene. In the letter, CAIR said, “Given the recent spike in anti-Muslim rhetoric, including Islamophobic statements by government officials, community leaders and media outlets, death threats, and other bias incidents targeting Muslims, I urge you to investigate this matter soon.”

The ACLU also asked the DOJ to intervene.

And now, the DOJ says it is “monitoring the situation.”

According to The Washington Post, the DOJ has not provided details indicating any investigation has been opened, but CAIR is pleased that the DOJ has become involved, and they hope it will lead to an investigation in the future.

CAIR’s Jennifer Wicks said, “We welcome this positive development and hope it leads to a thorough investigation of clear violations of the civil rights of American Muslims and those perceived to be Muslim by the gun range owner.”

In January, “A South Asian father and son accused Morgan’s business of turning them away.” They claimed Morgan assumed they were Muslim because their skin was brown. The identities of the two are not known because they demanded anonymity “out of safety concerns.”

Morgan rejected their claims, stating it was their behavior, not their skin color, that led her to think they “might not be safe handling firearms in [her] range.” Morgan made clear that her range does not discriminate based on skin color, and explained her belief that the South Asian father and son applied to shoot with an “agenda.” She said their actions were “clearly designed to create the situation that occurred.”

The Brady organization is suing a Mississippi pawn shop that is also a FLFD for not doing that, that is, servicing in spite of the buyer’s suspicious behavior. Though since this OD article was written two years ago tomorrow, I’m sure that the lawsuit has been resolved already.





Racial Profiling By Any Other Name

Never fear, Blogmeister is here.

Data-driven law enforcement is how we do racial profiling without doing racial profiling.  Because neither Al Sharpton nor Eric Holder have yet been able to figure out a way to accuse a spreadsheet of discrimination.  Not even the obnoxious “disparate impact” doctrine seems to work.

It’s also how we figure out precisely which ghetto thug undertow blacks to make somebody else’s problem while screaming compassion and humanitarianism all the while.

They saw something, and said something, but it all fell on deaf ears.  Because diversity and racial profiling, and also ACLU.
