What happens when you spend the latter part of 2020 completely capitulating to the demands of Black Lives Matter, a terrorist organization that wanted to make it legal for black individuals to collectively commit the bulk of the crime across America?

A mere year later, these corporate CEOs who fell to their knees to fellate Black Lives Matter with the most gusto now rise up and demand police protect their property…

CEOs from Target, CVS and Walgreens ask Congress for help amid retail crime surge,, December 11, 2021

The CEOs from 20 major retail brands, including Target TGT, -1.68%, CVS CVS, +0.04% and Walgreens WBA, -0.73%, have jointly penned a letter to Congress over concerns of increasing crime in their stores.

“As millions of Americans have undoubtedly seen on the news in recent weeks and months, retail establishments of all kinds have seen a significant uptick in organized crime in communities across the nation,” the letter reads.

“While we constantly invest in people, policies, and innovative technology to deter theft, criminals are capitalizing on the anonymity of the Internet and the failure of certain marketplaces to verify their sellers,” it continues. “This trend has made retail businesses a target for increasing theft, hurt legitimate businesses who are forced to compete against unscrupulous sellers, and has greatly increased consumer exposure to unsafe and dangerous counterfeit products.”

The goal for the letter, which was addressed to the majority and minority leaders in both the House and the Senate, is to consider passing the Integrity, Notification and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces (INFORM) Consumers Act. The act aims to increase transparency for online retail marketplaces, slow the sale of counterfeit goods online, and increase verification protocols for buyers.

“Leading retailers are concerned about the growing impact organized retail crime is having on the communities we proudly serve, which is why we strongly support the bipartisan and bicameral Integrity, Notification and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces (INFORM) for Consumers Act,” the letter continues. “This important legislation will modernize our consumer protection laws to safeguard families and communities from the sale of illicit products and we urge its quick passage.”

And 69.4% of retailers say they have experienced a rise in retail-related crimes over the past year, according to data from the 2021 Retail Security Survey. The surveyed companies cited issues surrounding COVID-19, policing, changes to sentencing and the huge growth of online marketplaces.

Here’s a list of the CEOs who wrote the letter to Congress, and the companies that they represent:

  • Ken Hicks, Academy Sports + Outdoors
  • Lauren Hobart, DICK’S Sporting Goods Inc. DKS, -7.51%
  • Richard Johnson, Foot Locker Inc. FL, -5.09%
