CVS apologizes after Chicago manager calls cops on black customer over coupon

CVS apologizes after Chicago manager calls cops on black customer over coupon

Shopper Camilla Hudson recorded the incident last week adding to the growing list of black people having the police called on them for just existing. CVS spokesperson Mike DeAngelis said in a statement, "We sincerely apologize to Ms. Hudson for her experience in one of our stores".

Video of the incident shows Matson trembling uncontrollably while he's on the phone with the cops.

When he attempted to describe Hudson, she chimed in fearlessly stating she would be there when they arrive. No action was taken by police.

Moreover, Facebook will often go beyond censoring posts to locking users out of their accounts, sometimes for 24 hours or more.

The manager is president of the IL chapter of the Log Cabin Republicans, an organization that represents "LGBT conservatives and straight allies", and he supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election, according to Raw Story. He also spearheaded a supposed successful 2016 petition push to include a non-binding referendum for the construction of the Egdewater Beachwalk. A vote on the boardwalk was yanked from the November 2016 ballot after city officials ruled that five pages of signatures that he had submitted might have been forged.

Matson's 2019 campaign page for Alderman was littered with provocative text. Yes, you read that right, unfortunately. Do you want to restore law and order to combat our ward's rising crime rate?

The Star reported that worshippers at the United Believers Community Church were urged to leave the area as soon as possible. Police are actively searching for the perpetrator around the area of the shooting which was near 40 highway and Manchester.

Putin Does Not Deny That Russia Has 'Compromising Information' On Trump
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi , D-Calif., was similarly disdainful, saying Trump "had the opportunity to stand up to Putin". Responding to reporters questions on the Russian Federation investigation, President Donald Trump said there was "no collusion".

USA to UN: Cut off North Korea’s oil supplies
But a USA military official familiar with the matter said last month it was not clear what North Korea might hand over. President Donald Trump, Quintana said that not raising human rights issues would send a "wrong message".

Prior to announcing his aldermanic bid, Matson said that he was heading up an effort to revitalize the local branch of the Log Cabin Republicans. That site has since gone offline.

In one Facebook post about the incident, Hudson wrote that after a brief conversation with the police officers called to the CVS, she left the store.

CVS told Block Chicago that an additional manager has been fired as well: "We have completed our investigation, and as a result the two colleagues who were involved are no longer employed by CVS Health".

CVS Pharmacy does not tolerate any practices that discriminate against any customer and we are committed to maintaining a welcoming and diverse environment in our stores.

And a year ago at O'Hare International Airport, a video of a United Airlines passenger who refused to give up his seat quickly went viral worldwide, prompting a public relations crisis for the Chicago-based airline that resulted in legislative hearings, policy changes and employee training.
