New footage released by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office reveals a mass looting incident at a Tampa Bay, Florida Walmart, with hundreds of looters pouring into the retail business and pillaging merchandise.

The looting spree occurred on May 30th. HCSO detectives believe around 200 people poured into the Walmart to loot the business.

Authorities are claiming that looters stole more than $100,000 in merchandise from the store. The footage was released through their investigation in the looting, and the sheriff’s department is hoping the public can assist in identifying some of the looters.

The footage reveals the mob of looters focusing on the Walmart’s electronics section for looting purposes, where they lifted computers, televisions, and gaming consoles. The Walmart is estimating the damages from the looting spree to be around $116,000.

In an ironic twist, Walmart has come out in support of the mass protest, riot and looting movement. The megacorporation- one of the most profitable in the United States- has pledged to donate $100 million to advance “racial justice” causes in the United States, creating a boon for neoliberal academics hoping to monetize leftist identitarian lectures and “education.”

Walmart has also declined to offer an extended “coronavirus bonus” to its employees facing the hazards of staffing its stores in the wake of the coronavirus epidemic, instead opting to hand out a one-time cash bonus, even as other major retailers accept their obligation to raise wages in light of the pandemic. Such an approach allows the PR-sensitive megacorporation, which was once criticized by the Left for its refusal to page a living wage to its employees, to appear virtuous while declining to properly pay its employees for the hazards they face.

It appears the local Tampa Bay Walmart affiliate is less thrilled about the results of the nationwide riot movement, openly cooperating with the police in hopes of getting back its stolen merchandise.

Starbucks Barista FIRED After Refusing to Wear “Pride” T-Shirt for Religious Reasons, According to Lawsuit

She is a Christian and was apparently told by her manager that she didn’t have to wear it.

A former Starbucks barista is filing an unlawful discrimination lawsuit against the coffee giant, claiming they fired her for refusing to wear a “Pride” t-shirt that violated her Christian religious convictions.

Betsy Fresse started working as a barista in December 2015. After transferring to a Glen Ridge, New Jersey, store in early 2019, managers apparently “assured” her that her Christian faith wouldn’t be an issue.

Then in June 2019, she noticed a box of Pride shirts on a desk and asked if they’d make her wear one. Her store manager said she wouldn’t have to, but two months later she found herself out of a job after being terminated by a district manager.

A notice of separation claims that Fresse was fired for violating Starbucks’ “core values.” It specifically mentions an incident where she said her colleagues “need Jesus” when given the “Pride” shirt.

Starbucks maintains that “no part of our dress code requires partners to wear any approved items that they have not personally selected” and that Fresse’s claims are “without merit,” in a comment to the New York Post.

So Starbucks denies that she was fired for not wearing the shirt, yet their notice of separation appears to claim that they fired her for something she said about Jesus. Not a good look either way.

Fresse is seeking backpay, punitive damages, money to cover the cost of an attorney, and a permanent injunction that prevents Starbucks from “failing to accommodate […] sincerely held religious beliefs.”

Starbucks has long been a major player in the world of Woke Capital. Back in February Big League Politics reported on how the British branch of Starbucks was raising money for a pro-transgender lobbying group:

The U.K. branch of Starbucks is raising money to push for the chemical castration and surgical mutilation of children.

Nathanael Blake at The Federalist reported that the multinational titan is selling special mermaid-shaped cookies to help the pro-transgender lobbying group Mermaids. Curiously, the group’s founder took her underage son to Thailand to undergo a castration procedure.

Blake correctly observed “That Starbucks is supporting this group illustrates how thoroughly radicals have conquered both the LGBT movement and corporate culture.”

He also called attention to how “In a few years the fight has shifted from government recognition of same-sex relationships as legal marriages to mastectomies, sterilization, and castration for children.”

Here’s hoping that Betsy Fresse is successful in her lawsuit.
