    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) -- Two robbery suspects exchanged gunfire with Virginia Beach police late Thursday night before being taken into custody with the help of K9 officers. The robbery happened just before 11:20 p.m. at a 7-Eleven in the 1700 block of S. Independence Boulevard, according to police. Officers caught on to this robbery thanks in part to a plan that was developed to address a spree of multi-jurisdictional armed robberies at 7-Eleven stores across Hampton Roads. Members of the 4th Precinct and Special Operations Command were surveilling operations at stores, when officers saw the two masked suspects leaving...
  • 7-Eleven Immigration Raids: 'Harbinger' for Employers

    U.S. immigration agents descended on dozens of 7-Eleven stores before dawn Wednesday to open employment audits and interview workers in what officials described as the largest operation against an employer under Donald Trump's presidency. Agents targeted about 100 stores nationwide, broadening an investigation that began with a 4-year-old case against a franchisee on New York's Long Island. The audits could lead to criminal charges or fines over the stores' hiring practices. The action appears to open a new front in Trump's sharp expansion of immigration enforcement, which has already brought a 40 percent increase in deportation arrests and plans to...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents targeted dozens of 7-Eleven stores early Wednesday morning, arresting 21 people in a nationwide immigration sweep, the agency said in a statement. ICE agents targeted 98 stores in Washington, D.C., Indiana, Illinois, Maryland, California, Florida, Missouri and several other states to interview employees and deliver audits. “Businesses that hire illegal workers are a pull factor for illegal immigration and we are working hard to remove this magnet. ICE will continue its efforts to protect jobs for American workers by eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that exploit illegal immigration,” ICE head Thomas Homan said...

  • 7-Eleven Coffee Cup Poll Reflects Election

    7-Eleven typically offers two different coffee cup options for its 7-Election promotional campaign, each named for one of the presidential candidates from the two major political parties. This year, however, there are three options: Republican, Democrat, and “Speak Up.” No candidate names. The nondenominational “Speak Up” cup is currently winning the poll by a pretty fair margin. It offers coffee drinkers the opportunity to pencil in their own political stance, or abstain from pouring their brew into a partisan container to maintain their political purity. With the exception of Idaho and Iowa, which are both leaning Republican in 7-Eleven’s poll...

    For 20 years, 7-Eleven has served up a tasty prediction of the Presidential election and on September 6 the chain will once again roll out the 7-Eleven Presidential Coffee Cup Poll. Although it may be an unorthodox way to predict November’s big winner, the convenience store chain says that the votes cast by coffee drinkers are eerily similar to those tallied at the polls. When grabbing a morning cup of joe, Democrats choose a blue cup while those leaning Republican pick up a red cup. Given the tumultuous nature of this year’s election, 7-Eleven decided to include a ballot option...

  • (From April 22, 2016) NYC Fire District Releases Statement About Donald Trump… Media Stunned

    When Donald Trump spoke earlier this week in Buffalo, media critics lambasted him for allegedly confusing "9/11" with "7/11." However, a theory emerged as to why Trump didn't misspeak, one that the media refuses to acknowledge. The controversy all began Monday, as Trump was speaking before a crowd in Buffalo on the day before the New York primary. During the speech, he touted his 9/11 activism. "I wrote this out, and it's very close to my heart," Trump said to the audience. "Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at...

    7/11, 9/11, it’s all the same to Donald Trump. The billionaire — who never visited the Sept. 11 Memorial & Museum in lower Manhattan until months after his campaign kicked off —seemed to have briefly forgotten the date the terrorist attack happened. “I wrote this out, and it’s very close to my heart,” he said at the First Niagara Center on Monday night during the rally. “Because I was down there and I watched our police and our firemen down at 7/11, down at the World Trade Center right after it came down. And I saw the greatest people I’ve...

    After grabbing a Slurpee and hot dog, 7-Eleven patrons may pick up some government-sponsored healthcare messages, too. The Administration just announced a partnership that allows them to promote ObamaCare on sales receipts. Building on partnerships with shopping malls and other hot spots for the young and uninsured, the Department of Health and Human Services announced a partnership with PayNearMe, an electronic payment processing system that allows businesses to process cash payments for those who don’t have access to banks. 7-Eleven is one such store that will now allow PayNearMe receipts to include a plug for at the bottom of...

    ORLANDO, Fla. — A request for money led to a fight which left one man shot dead outside an Orlando convenience store Sunday morning. Orange County deputies were called to a 7-Eleven in the 800 block of Lee Rd. around 5 a.m. Sunday in reference to a shooting. Once on scene, deputies found a man in his late 20’s in the parking lot with a gunshot wound to the chest. Investigators say the shooting victim had approached a customer at the store, identified as a man in his 40’s, and asked for money.

    Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, on Sunday unsurprisingly defended Hobby Lobby, the company challenging the rule under Obamacare that for-profit employers' health plans must cover contraceptives for female employees at no extra cost. But in his defense of religious liberty, Dolan incorrectly claimed that women already have access to widely available contraceptives at "any shop on any street in America," namely 7-Eleven. “I would be inspired by the Hobby Lobby,” Dolan said on Sunday's "Face The Nation." “I think they’re just true Americans. They’re saying, look, the genius of America is that religious convictions affect the way...

The charges include wire fraud, aggravated identify theft and conspiracy to conceal and harbor the immigrants.U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement...
  • The 7-Election Romney Coffee vs. Obama Kool-aide (vanity)

    Ok, so I had some time to kill this morning and I walked into a 7-11 to find a clever promotion for the election season. They have red and blue coffee cups, blue for Obama and red for Romney. The thought crossed my mind to get an Obama coffee cup and fill it up with Fruit Punch as it would be the "Obama Kool-aide" and then fill the Romney cup up with ice and load it up with decaf coffee loaded with all sorts of cream and flavoring because Romney isn't exactly a regular cup of coffee so it would...

    What do you call cheese that's not yours? Stolen. Michael Richards learned that punch line Saturday after, authorities said, he scuffled with a 7-Eleven cashier on Chicago's Near West Side who tried to stop him from helping himself to the nacho fixings. Richards, 50, of Chicago, bought a bag of chips from the store, then began pumping hot cheese from the toppings bar into the open bag, authorities said. But the cashier warned him that the nacho toppings bar is for use only by customers who purchase tortilla chips served in a traditional plastic tray, according to court records.

    Global convenience store chain 7-Eleven has been getting some free advertising for its signature drink, the Slurpee, from none other than U.S. President Barack Obama. Obama has used the Slurpee -- a thick, frozen, flavoured beverage that is wildly popular with Americans -- in speeches on the campaign trail ahead of next week's mid-term elections to illustrate just how obstructionist and ornery Republicans can be. At a rally at Bowie State University in Maryland this month, Obama said that while his Democratic Party was sweating and pushing to get the U.S. economy out of a ditch, "the Republicans . ....
