    OAKLAND (CBS SF) — A worker at a McDonald’s in Oakland has filed a complaint with Cal/OSHA alleging a customer at the drive-thru attacked her after she refused him service for not wearing a mask, as well as claiming prior incidents of worker abuse by customers and management’s lack of concern for worker security. The worker, 19-year-old Maria Resendiz, was working at the drive-thru window at the McDonald’s on the 6600 block of San Pablo Avenue in Oakland on June 27 at around 3 p.m. when a customer pulled up to the window without a mask.

Resendiz said after previous attacks on her from other customers –...
    (Reuters) - After the relentless abuse hurled at workers at a California taco chain by customers who refused to wear masks, the chief financial officer at Hugo's Tacos decided enough was enough. Bill Kohne said he made the decision to close the doors at Hugo's Tacos to protect his staff, who were becoming traumatized by the constant verbal attacks. "Over the last two, three, four weeks the emotions attached to simply asking people to wear one while they're with us has become really vitriolic and at times, personal, hostile and abusive," said Kohne. Ellie Rosalez, who manages one of two taco stands in the Los Angeles area that has shut, said the barrage of name calling, mocking and objects being thrown was just too much to take. "All we asked for was for respect." A GoFundMe page set up to help the workers of the stands has surged, reaching its...

    Coronavirus — In many places, as countries reopen, covid-19 cases are on the rise. Here are the latest developments around the world: “Significant increases” in US cases: The leading infectious disease expert from the United States, Dr. Anthony Fauci, said he is “very concerned” about the increase in cases in some parts of the country and said he would not It would be surprising if the US starts registering 100,000 new cases per day, given current trends. Reopening plans suspended: At least 16 US states have suspended their reopening plans in response to a surge in new infections, but some health officials say the spread of the coronavirus will be difficult to control.

    A logo of 5G is seen at a Huawei authorised experience store on May 29, 2020 in Beijing, China.Qin Luyao | VCG | Getty Images The U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has officially designated Huawei and ZTE national security threats. That means that companies cannot use an $8.3 billion government subsidy program, known as the Universal Service Fund, to purchase, maintain or support any equipment or services from the two Chinese telecommunications giants. "With today's Orders, and based on the overwhelming weight of evidence, the (FCC's Public Safety and Homeland Security) Bureau has designated Huawei and ZTE as national security risks to America's communications networks—and to our 5G future," FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said in a statement.  The ruling formalizes a unanimous FCC vote in November in which the regulator declared both Chinese companies as national security risks. Huawei and ZTE did not respond to a request for comment when contacted by...
    Sacha Baron Cohen showed up in Olympia, Wash., on Saturday to prank a right-wing protest crowd with a racist song, to which audience members happily sang along. The organizers of a Saturday rally in Olympia, Washington, to protest the state’s anti-COVID stay-at-home orders—including the militiamen of 3% of Washington—were happy to have what they thought was a conservative PAC step up and finance the event. The PAC paid for facilities, outhouses, security, and promotion, and it all seemed good. Then the guy in the fake beard and the goofy overalls leading a country band performing for the audience stepped up to the microphone and began singing a loudly racist song. That was about the time the “Patriots” began to realize they had just been pranked by Sacha Baron Cohen. The PAC, according to the Seattle Times, calling itself Back to Work America, approached the organizers of the event—called “March For Our...
    By The Associated Press China’s enactment of a national security law for Hong Kong on Tuesday drew statements of deep concern and regret from abroad and a firm defense at home. The law has fueled a widening divide between China and the United States and some other countries over the future of Hong Kong, a semi-autonomous Chinese territory that Britain handed over to Beijing in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” framework specified in a Joint Declaration between the two nations. A look at some reactions and statements from around the world to the law that takes direct aim at some of the actions of anti-government protesters last year: ___ EUROPEAN UNION “This law risks seriously undermining the high degree of autonomy of Hong Kong and having a detrimental effect on the independence of the judiciary and rule of law, and we deplore this decision," said European Council President...
    The former head of the Department of Homeland Security said the potential for a massive critical infrastructure or election database breach on Election Day is high, and people are better off voting by mail. “The one thing about mail is this: You can't hack a letter,” said Michael Chertoff, who worked in the George W. Bush administration. “It’s cumbersome. It may turn out [that] encouraging widespread voting by mail is actually one of the stepping stones in securing our electoral process.” Chertoff said he was concerned about the potential for a foreign enemy (such as China or Russia) to shut down critical infrastructure, including the power grid, transportation systems, or telecommunications networks, on Nov. 3 in an attempt to interfere with the U.S. democratic process. While Chertoff said cities and states should consider reducing electricity use and other utilities on Election Day, he said the best way to...
    China’s enactment of a national security law for Hong Kong on Tuesday drew statements of deep concern and regret from abroad and a firm defense at home. The law has fueled a widening divide between China and the United States and some other countries over the future of Hong Kong, a semi-autonomous Chinese territory that Britain handed over to Beijing in 1997 under a “one country, two systems” framework. It criminalizes separatist activity, subversion, terrorist acts and foreign influence in Hong Kong affairs. ___ JAPAN: “It is regrettable that the national security law was enacted despite strong concerns shared among the international society and the people of Hong Kong,” Japanese Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi said. ”It will undermine trust for the principle of ‘one country, two systems.’ ” UNITED KINGDOM: “We are deeply concerned by unconfirmed reports that Beijing has passed the national security law.

    TOKYO/TAIPEI (Reuters) - Japan expressed concern and Taiwan voiced disappointment on Tuesday after China passed a national security law for Hong Kong that could bring about the starkest changes in the former British colony's way of life since it returned to Chinese rule. In Tokyo, top government officials called the legislation - approved by China's parliament earlier - "regrettable", saying it undermined credibility in the "one country, two systems" formula adopted at Hong Kong's 1997 handover from Britain to China to preserve its wide-ranging freedoms. "We will continue to work with the countries involved to deal with this issue appropriately," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference. Japan will also communicate closely with the United States and China, as stable relations between the two global powers were vital for regional and global security, he said. Later, Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi told reporters he shared the "deep concern" of...
    GENEVA (AP) — The U.N. human rights chief said Friday that 580 civilians have been killed in central Mali this year amid worsening inter-communal violence, faulting security forces for rights violations and saying radical groups like the regional wings of al-Qaida and Islamic State are fanning and exploiting it. The office of Michelle Bachelet, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, urged Malian authorities to set up “prompt, thorough, impartial and independent investigations” into alleged rights violations and abuses, adding: “This is the only way to reverse this trend of continuing violence.” She said in a statement that Malian security forces deployed to the area “have themselves been involved” in rights violations — mostly against the Peulh community, which is primarily made up of herders.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – A Los Angeles family on Thursday filed a $17 million lawsuit against the L.A. Dodgers alleging they were racially profiled and assaulted by security during a playoff game last October. Security personnel for the Los Angeles Dodgers converge on a man following a playoff game on Oct. 9, 2019, at Dodger Stadium. (CBSLA) The lawsuit, filed in L.A.

    The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has been accused of withholding vital information regarding two deputy-involved fatal shootings last week.  The department faced outrage over the deaths of Andres Guardado, 18, and Terron Boone, 31, and on Monday, Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva had committed to 'transparency' in their investigations.  Yet the institutions tasked with overseeing deputies' use of force claim they have been stonewalled when looking for information.   The Sheriff Civilian Oversight Commission and its investigative arm, the Office of Inspector General, told the Los Angeles Times that the sheriff's department refused to hand over vital documents they asked for days ago.   Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said he won't 'piecemeal' the release of information about the deputy-involved shooting deaths of Andres Guardado and Terron Boone Andres Guardado, 18, and Terron Boone, 31, were shot dead by deputies in two separate incidents last week. The Sheriff Civilian Oversight...
    In early 2020, Social Security Administration Commissioner Andrew Saul engaged in several stock transactions that appear to have anticipated market reactions to the coronavirus crisis, according to financial disclosure forms. Specifically, Saul made seemingly prescient investments in Abbott Laboratories, UnitedHealth, thecloud workflow company ServiceNow and Eurofins, a foreign company that manufactures personal protective equipment (PPE) for health care workers, among other things. Though Saul — a wealthy New York businessman with prior government service and decades of financial expertise — has a substantial and diverse portfolio, the timing of the transactions, together with his activity in the administration and investment experience, is intriguing. It also appears that Saul, who led the U.S. government’s Federal Retirement Thrift Board from 2002 to 2011, is among the few senior executive branch officials who have not yet submitted annual financial disclosure forms this year (they are usually due by May 15), making it difficult to understand his most recent market...
    The Department of Homeland Security will start tracking all personnel, including federal employees as well as contractors, with or without a security clearance to uncover insider security threats, a report said Wednesday. Homeland Security has always focused on identifying and preventing agency employees with security clearances from becoming insider threats by leaking classified information. But now, the department’s Insider Threat Program is expanding to include anyone, whether past or current employees or contractors, who has or had access to sensitive information, according to Nextgov.com, which tracks the feds’ use of gathering data. “Subsequent to standing up the DHS ITP, the threats the department faces extend beyond threats of unauthorized disclosure of classified information by DHS-cleared employees,” according to the updated policy. “Threats faced include those posed by insiders with and without security clearances engaging in activities that have no nexus to unauthorized disclosure of classified information.” The notice written by...
    NBC News anchor Andrea Mitchell and Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D.C.) experienced a tense moment at the newly established “Black House Autonomous Zone” in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday that left one of them asking, “Where’s the police when you need them?” In a video posted by Daily Caller Senior Congressional Correspondent Henry Rodgers on Tuesday, Mitchell, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent and host of “Andrew Mitchell Reports,” and Rep. Norton appear to be in the middle of an interview at the “autonomous zone” that radical protesters have attempted to establish this week in front of St. John’s Church in D.C., in the mode of Seattle’s embattled “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone.” Suddenly, a scantily clad protester carrying a pink megaphone runs at the two women, grabbing the congresswoman before a security guard in a black mask and hat is able to pull the protester away.

    Homeland Patrol Division Security owner Steve Pansini explained Tuesday that he and his team were hired to protect homes and businesses inside Seattle's so-called "CHOP" zone because residents have felt vulnerable and left unprotected by their city's leadership.

RESIDENTS NEAR SEATTLE'S CHOP ASK WHAT TOOK CITY SO LONG TO MOVE TO BREAK UP PROTEST "I mean, they feel like they’re not protected by the law enforcement because of basically them having to get out of the autonomous zone.

    The German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) has sounded the alarm over the increased level of violence from far-left Antifa militants, saying murders of political opponents are now possible. According to the German security agency, far-left extremists have become more radical to the point that “the development of terrorist structures in left-wing extremism” is now a real possibility. The 22-page report, which was obtained by German newspaper Die Welt, adds that “even the step of deliberately killing a political opponent no longer seems completely unthinkable”. The agency specifically notes several groups within the far-left scene in various German regions which have become more radicalised and have closed off from many in the broader far-left. BfV said the left-extremists are “committed to their own facts, and split off from the rest of the scene due to their increasing willingness to use violence”.

    Adam Schiff claimed Sunday that he was 'disturbed' after reading some leaked excerpts from John Bolton's new book detailing his 17 months as Donald Trump's national security adviser. The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee claimed that while he has not yet read the book, he and his colleagues will go though it with a fine-tooth comb to find potentially incriminating information they could use against the president. While he insists that the exposure this book gives the public to Trump's actions regarding foreign affairs is needed, he also took a hit at Bolton for refusing to testify before his committee and instead revealing it in a tell-all memoir. 'To the length and degree that [Bolton] indicts Donald Trump, he also indicts himself, for cowardice and for greed. Because there were people who did come forward... who risked their careers,' Schiff told NBC's Meet the Press Sunday morning. 'It was...

    BOYSTOWN — The Northalsted Business Alliance confirmed Friday it will stop contracting with a private security firm owned by a Chicago cop accused of a racist attack in 2013. Walsh Security, owned by 19th District police officer Thomas Walsh, has been contracted by the Northalsted Business Alliance on a case-by-case basis for the last three years, according to Jennifer Gordon, a spokeswoman for the business alliance. The company would send guards to work events like the Pride Parade, Pride Festival and Market Days, as well as provide evening patrols during summer weekends.
