    Two Lululemon employees in Georgia are speaking out after they say they were fired for calling police on would-be robbers. Jennifer Ferguson, a former assistant manager at a metro Atlanta area Lululemon store and one of her employees, Rachel Rogers, were fired by the retail chain after shocking video captured the duo yelling at and chasing masked robbers out of their store before calling police, which they claim got them fired, according to a report from the New York Post. The viral video shows the masked thieves bursting into the store earlier this month and grabbing as many items as...

    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — A man who drove the car that helped pull down the statue of a Civil War hero and abolitionist outside of the Wisconsin state Capitol during a night of protests in 2020 has been sentenced to six months in jail. The statue of Hans Christian Heg was toppled and beheaded during a protest in downtown Madison in June 2020 against police brutality. Protests began a month earlier over the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police and flared up again that June after Madison police arrested a Black activist. Kelsey D. Nelson, 33, was sentenced for...

    The legal heirs of a German Jewish banker who was forced to sell his art collection to avoid persecution by the Nazis are suing a Japanese holding company to reclaim ownership of a painting by Vincent van Gogh. Three heirs of Paul von Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, based in New York and Germany, filed a lawsuit on December 13 in an Illinois district court against Sompo Holdings, an insurance company based in Japan, to dispute its legal title to the painting Sunflowers (1888). The claim states that Mendelssohn-Bartholdy was a “casualty” of Nazi-era policies and economic sanctions that forced him to sell his...

    One of America’s largest retailers said Wednesday that the surge in crime is inflicting deep losses. Target said its stores are getting looted at a massive scale. The damage to the bottom line has amounted to $400 million so far this year, the company said on a call with reporters on Wednesday. The company is not the only retailer to point to a rise in theft recently. A spokesman for CVS said earlier this year that it has experienced a 300 percent increase in theft. Rite Aid said in October it suffered $5 million in losses due to theft in...
  • Wawa may exclude Philly from future expansion due to crime concerns, city councilmember says

    Philadelphia Councilmember Mike Driscoll on Tuesday said a “senior” Wawa representative told him the company was considering excluding Philadelphia from its expansion plans because of crime concerns, the Philadelphia Business Journal reported. During a forum hosted by the Philadelphia Real Estate Alliance, Driscoll said he met with Wawa representatives the day after a store in Mayfair, which is in his district, was ransacked by an estimated 100 juveniles. “The scariest part to me is one of the senior officials said, ‘We’re seriously considering moving out of the city of Philadelphia in our strategic planning, at least not to expand,’” Driscoll...

    Wawa, a beloved Philadelphia-area convenience store, might nix plans to expand in the city after one location was ransacked by dozens of looters last month, according to a Philadelphia councilman. “They’ve had to invest in security, and those of you that have these office buildings [know that] security doesn’t add anything to your bottom line, it takes away from your bottom line. But without it, then you’re in deep trouble. So they are spending money, they’re losing money,” Philadelphia Democratic Councilmember Mike Driscoll said Tuesday at a town hall-style forum hosted by the Philadelphia Real Estate Alliance. “The scariest part...

    Polk County, Florida, Sheriff Grady Judd is telling residents of his county to protect their homes by shooting looters until they look “like grated cheese.” Grady told FOX News on Friday, “People have a right to be safe in their homes. They have a right for their property to be safe, even when part of their home may be torn away, and these looters, that’s unacceptable.” Grady went on to encourage Polk county residents to defend their property from looters and to make sure looters understand there could be a high price to pay for taking advantage of hurricane victims.

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has taken a very public stance against looters in the aftermath of the devastating hurricane damage Ian left in its path. Last week, The Gateway Pundit reported on the Governor’s warning to looters, “We are a law and order state, and this is a law and order community. So do not think that you’re going to take advantage of people who’ve suffered misery.” The governor warned those seeking to “ransack people’s homes” that the state is heavily armed. “I can tell you in the state of Florida, you never know what may be lurking behind somebody’s...

    Officials in Lee County, Florida, are warning that not all post-Hurricane Ian looters may get off as lucky as the jailed accused scavengers arrested earlier this week — some of whom are in the U.S. illegally. Omar Mejia Ortiz, 33, and Valerie Celeste Salcedo Mena, 26, were arrested, along with 20-year-olds Brandon Mauricio Araya and Steve Eduardo Sanchez Araya. Lee County sheriff's deputies arrested all four on charges of burglary of an unoccupied structure during a state of emergency, according to online jail records. Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno held a press conference Tuesday in which he addressed the spike...

    It wasn’t all that long ago that Democrats were defending and bailing out rioters and looters during the BLM race riots. Or that In Defense of Looting was making the rounds of bookstores. They’ve tamped it down a bit since transitioning to abortion, but looting rights is still on the agenda. MSNBC’s Joy Reid likened Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) to segregationists after his warning to potential looters in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. For the much of the past week, DeSantis has been dealing with the storm’s impact as the death toll continues to rise and Florida faces an...

    Gov. Ron Desantis (R-Fla.), a bonafide star in the Republican party, didn’t hold back in a Friday press conference when talking about what may happen to looters who try to take advantage of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Ian. “Don’t even think about looting. Don’t even think about taking advantage of people in this vulnerable situation. And so local law enforcement is involved in monitoring that,” Desantis defiantly warned. “You can have people, you know, bringing boats into some of these islands and trying to ransack people’s homes,” he continued. “I can tell you, in the state of Florida, you...

    A Missouri jury found Stephan Cannon, the 26-year-old accused of gunning down retired St. Louis Police Capt.

Court records show jurors twice asked the court questions before returning the verdict after just over 3 hours of deliberations. Cannon was charged with first-degree murder, first-degree robbery, first-degree burglary, stealing $750 or more, unlawful...

    Violent Antifa activists are active again in Portland and Seattle, inspired by a leaked draft of a Supreme Court decision this week reversing Roe v. Wade. Neither city is ready for a repeat of Black Lives Matter-inspired left-wing riots and vandalism. But Antifa is now more dangerous than ever. Antifa operates most effectively during left-wing movements where they rely on partisan media outlets and like-minded politicians to either justify or ignore their violence. It’s one reason why they pose an enormous threat as pro-abortion activists take to the streets to protest a Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

    Angry mobs stormed various government buildings in Lima, Peru, on Tuesday night, attempting to burn down the Superior Court of Justice of Lima and fighting police with bricks and sticks. The violent protests followed a turbulent 24 hours in which communist President Pedro Castillo abruptly announced a “curfew” stripping citizens of their constitutional rights, then repealed the curfew when thousands disobeyed it. The curfew, Castillo claimed, was an attempt to subdue nationwide protests against skyrocketing gasoline and food prices, an increasingly common phenomenon in the world’s most vulnerable economies. Outraged political observers told local media that the curfew was baffling...
