To those who've been critical of the protesters who are looting and burning down Targets -- please, shut up. The CEO of Target has officially issued a statement in response to the nationwide protests in the wake of the recent murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and Geoge Floyd. The CEO, Brian Cornell, penned an open letter in support of the protesters and communities across America that are constantly dealing with police brutality.
"We are a community in pain. That pain is not unique to the Twin Citiesit extends across America. The murder of George Floyd has unleashed the pent-up pain of years, as have the killings of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor. We say their names and hold a too-long list of others in our hearts. As a Target team, weve huddled, weve consoled, weve witnessed horrific scenes similar to whats playing out now and wept that not enough is changing. And as a team weve vowed to face pain with purpose," reads the letter.
Its hard to see now, but the day will come for healingand our team will join our hearts, hands and resources in that journey. Even now, Target leaders are assembling community members, partners and local officials to help identify what more we can do together and what resources are required to help families, starting right here in Minnesota."

What percentage of Target’s customer base is looters?
I thought looters weren’t paying customers, anyway.
he obviously uses the women’s bathroom
Does he really think the rioters have enough brain matter to understand what he’s saying? Waste of breath.
Target deserves to go bankrupt.
hard to tell in target.
screw this azzhole, and his stores.
ESAD. With leadership like this Target will eventually vanish and not a moment too soon.
Politically / sociall woke moron.
Need a barf alert.
It does not matter. Virtue signaling is more important than rational thought, profits, shareholder accountability, or any other evil capitalist constructs.
I have made money in the past short selling their stock.
Why doesn’t he close all Target stores? Is he only closing them in areas that serve a large black population? Is he a racist?
Remove locks on the doors Target ceo....assuage your white guilt...
That is a Surrender Note.
What a soi-boy, dufuss.
You beat me to it.
In Cal if you steal less than $950 worth of items it’a not cop-worthy. The new law protects shoplifting. Stores have actually videoed people with calculators adding up the value of things they are stashing under their clothes. Take three people with you can complete all your Christmas shopping.
Reselling stolen items is now a career path in LA County
