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.
Watch the surveillance camera footage of the mass looting here:
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.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
