Have you ever had a similar shopping trip?
Macy’s has agreed to pay a settlement of $650,000 to settle the accusations of racial profiling in their Manhattan’s Herald Square branch. The company also agreed to new policies allowing police access to its security camera footage, and to investigate customer complaints, report for 3 years on compliance of these issues, and keep better records of any issues that may arise.

There was documentation of 18 African-American, Latino and other ethnic minorities in February 2013 stating that between 2007-2013 they had been apprehended and detained at the store even though they hadn’t attempted to steal anything.
