Toronto woman says Walmart employees racially profiled her family, accused teen daughter of stealing

A Black woman says she and her daughters were racially profiled after a Walmart employee accused them of stealing an item they were in the process of paying for. 

Solange Scott and her daughters were grocery shopping on Thursday at a Walmart in Scarborough, located at 799 Milner Ave  near Highway 401 and Morningside Avenue. 

Scott says they had been scanning items at the self-checkout when she noticed a store employee staring at her and her 13-year-old daughters.

Scott recalls asking the employee, “Is there something I can help you with?”

“She just got extremely aggressive, opened her arms really wide and did, like, a jump and she screamed and said, ‘What? It’s my eyes, I can stare wherever I want to,'” Scott told CBC Toronto on Friday.

False Preacher and Marcionite Andy Stanley ’embarrassed as a Christian’ by churches that sparred with gov’t over COVID lockdowns

Pastor Andy Stanley of Atlanta’s North Point Community Church said he is “embarrassed” by churches that engaged in “spitting matches” with state and local governments over COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, lamenting that far too many churches “abandoned the mission for the sake of the model.”

Stanley, who made headlines last year when he announced that his Atlanta-area multisite church would not resume in-person worship services until 2021, said during Expoential’s Future of the Church event on Thursday that many churches across the country had the “exact wrong” approach to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The thing that has been concerning to me about the local church is how quickly so many local churches felt like, ‘We’ve got to get back in our building, shoulder to shoulder, doing what we’ve always done,’” Stanley said.

Mercedes Carrera Pretrial Date Postponed Until May

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. — The pretrial hearing in the Mercedes Carrera criminal case concerning multiple child sexual abuse charges against her and her husband — which was supposed to happen today at the Rancho Cucamonga courthouse in San Bernardino County, California — has been postponed once again, until May 5.

Carrera and her husband Jason Whitney were arrested after a police raid of their Rancho Cucamonga home on February 1, 2019. They have been in county jail without trial since then, first without bail and later, after they had liquidated their assets and had no source of income due to their incarceration, with bail set at $2 million for each.

A pretrial hearing to determine the jury selection process, and the date of the beginning of the actual trial, has already been postponed numerous times.

The new date of May 5 — like several previous postponements — appeared online in a document filed today.

The document shows the hearing took place today with District Attorney Laura Fragoso and a Conflict Panel attorney, Geoff Newman, standing for the accused.
