NEW YORK ARTIST BRINGS $10 MILLION LAWSUIT AGAINST WHOLE FOODS – WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH EDITION

Whole Foods Market and partner in crime Elite Security take another L at the top of 2019, as the lawsuits continue to pile up.  A New York artist, activist, and performer has filed a lawsuit against Whole Foods Market and its crime fam Elite Security for damages suffered as a result of an assault that took place at the Whole Foods Bowery location in August, 2018.

As shown in the video, the undercover loss prevention goon allegedly served up her assault soufflé on the Houston Street sidewalk, while clearly agitated that the shopper caught her reprehensible actions on camera.

Since Whole Foods and Elite will likely go to great lengths to protect her identity we will just refer to her as alias “Bruce Leroy” from here on out.

This particular lawsuit is an interesting one, as it has sparked my curiosity about inconsistencies and pieces of information that don’t quite add up.  First and foremost the initial complaint names Elite Security Personnel LLC as a Delaware corporation, but I am unable to find an Elite Security Personnel LLC registered in the state of Delaware.  Yet I am able to find a company called Elite Security Personnel Inc. registered in the state of Delaware as well as an Elite Security Personnel LLC registered with the New York State Department of State as a security guard company.  However, and this is where I am all the way lost, Elite Security Personnel LLC in New York has ZERO licensed security guards on its state licensing roster.

ZERO.  LICENSED.  SECURITY.  GUARDS.

So though Elite Security Personnel LLC may be parading itself as the security company that provides security guard services for Whole Foods Market, the NYS Department of State licensing check does not indicate that that company actually has personnel who are licensed to provide security services.  It is a requirement by the NYS Department of State for a licensed provider of services to display its current roster of licensed personnel on the state’s website.

$10 MILLION MYSTERY 

Even more odd, in my own research I personally went undercover as an individual pretending to be interested in a security guard job at the Union Square Whole Foods, and was shown start paperwork that had Elite Investigations clearly in the header of the document. So something is amiss with the way that Elite Investigations, Elite Security Personnel LLC, and whatever other “Elite” will pop up now as a result of a clear attempt to avoid legal liability for human rights violations and negligence.

We wish the New York woman good luck in her attempt to hold Whole Foods legally responsible for their actions in this case. Happy Women’s History Month!

ENTITLED WHOLE FOODS SECURITY GUARD PUTS SHOPPER IN SLEEPER CHOKEHOLD, NEARLY CHOKES THE LIFE OUT OF HIM

In another chapter from You Can’t Make Any Of This Up, a former Whole Foods shopper and New York resident was put into a sleeper chokehold and assaulted to unconsciousness at the Harlem Whole Foods location.

Man shopping at Whole Foods put into chokehold and strangled for shopping while Black

The surveillance video clearly shows the security guard wrap his arms firmly around the neck of the native South American gentleman who had been shopping, and strangle him until his body went completely limp, falling to the concrete floor while shocked shoppers looked on with their families.

The choke hold move is the same maneuver that a police officer used on Staten Island resident Eric Garner for appearing to sell “loosie” cigarettes, causing his swift death.

The former Whole Foods customer has now filed a lawsuit against Whole Foods and against their in-store gangsters masquerading as security, Elite Investigations, for assault, battery, and intentional infliction of distress.  Since Elite Investigations is not a corrupt organization, they have been forthcoming with the identity of the “loss prevention officer” that nearly killed the Whole Foods customer. 

But wait, there’s more!  Because the kale apparently comes with a side of drama when you’re perusing fresh produce at Whole Foods and you happen to be a minority!

Whole Foods will likely deny any of this ever happened as they have mastered the art of  avoiding accountability for discrimination and bias.  Unapologetically.

WHOLE FOODS SECURITY CO. ELITE INVESTIGATIONS WANTS YOU TO KNOW THAT THEY ARE YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE

 

The exceptionally bright intellectuals at Elite Investigations Ltd, the company that provides loss prevention and grocery store security guards for Whole Foods Market locations, wants you to know that they are 100% about that life.

A friend of Elite Investigations has published the following message for us mere peons to take in, on Elite’s Yelp page, viewable online for all to see.  Let us all be warned.

My tech source at Yelp’s New York office tells me that this Elizabeth G. user account was not actually created by a user in Florida.  Additionally, this friend of Elite Investigations appears to be challenged in the art of the English language and use of ellipsis, as s/he clearly does not know how to spell the word “sheriff”.  College is key.

To give an example of how to properly use a dictionary if one is uncertain of the correct spelling of a word, I have included the dictionary spelling of the word racketeering.

 

Racketeering  noun     rack·e·teer | \ˌra-kə-ˈtir

Racketeering is the federal crime of conspiring to organize to commit crimes, especially on an ongoing basis as part of an organized crime operation.

The Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) is a federal law allowing the federal government to place in trusteeship organizations which are convicted of being dominated by racketeers or organized crime.

A person injured as a result of a RICO violation can recover treble damages and reasonable attorneys’ fees. In order to prove a RICO violation, the person must be able to show that he or she was injured by a person associated with an “enterprise” that has been engaging in a “pattern of racketeering,”.

 

Elite Investigations Ltd, a private investigations company that is currently under review by three New York agencies (two of which have been written about here on Whole Foods Mafia) was recently officially served papers on October 10th, 2018, for a lawsuit that we exclusively broke here:  Whole Foods Loss Prevention Impersonates Police Officer, Unlawfully Detains Man.

Whole Foods Mafia will reveal the third agency that is currently investigating Elite Investigations in about a month’s time after receiving the greenlight from our source, and once Elite’s legal counsel has been notified that their business practices are under investigation.  Yet again.

Third time’s a charm!!

NEW YORK MAN FILES LEGAL COMPLAINT AGAINST ELITE INVESTIGATIONS LTD WITH THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OFFICE

 

A New York resident has brought a legal complaint against the company that provides store security for chain supermarket Whole Foods, Elite Investigations LTD, with the New York Office of the Attorney General.  As the head of the Department of Law, the New York State Attorney General, or “The People’s Lawyer”, serves all New Yorkers in matters of civil rights and consumer law. One of the many functions of the Attorney General’s office is to enforce the civil rights of every New York citizen, regardless of race, color, heritage, religion, or sexual orientation, as the goal of its Social Justice bureau is to combat unlawful discrimination faced by many vulnerable New Yorkers.

Elite Investigations LTD provides “undercover loss prevention officers” at various New York and New Jersey Whole Foods locations.

The courageous New Yorker, who wishes to remain anonymous as the alleged complaint is being reviewed, vows to be a voice in the people’s fight against corporate corruption, race-based profiling, discrimination, and systematic, classist, racism.

We are all wishing him good luck!

TRIBECA WOMAN HARASSED BY WHOLE FOODS SECURITY FILES COMPLAINT WITH THE NYS DEPARTMENT OF STATE

In 2016 A Tribeca resident and former Whole Foods Tribeca shopper had been actively harassed by undercover Whole Foods loss prevention for months, when an undercover loss prevention goon pulled his black ski-mask down over his face inside of the Tribeca store in a power abusing effort to terrorize her.  She regularly shopped alone and she also happens to be, of course, brown (because why else)?

As a result of the incident, concerned for her safety, the woman filed a police report with the NYPD for repeat offense harassment.

The New York City resident has now followed-up and filed a complaint with the charges of fraud, negligence, and incompetence on Whole Foods’s contracted security company Elite Investigations LTD, with the New York State Department of State Division of Licensing.  Security guards are licensed professionals who are required by law to adhere to a conduct of professionalism and are subject to regulation with respect to periodic training in the performance of their duties. A security guard’s job is to maintain the security of a protected premise, not to methodologically stalk, intimidate, terrorize and harass groups of consumers based on their appearance, heritage, or race.

If you have experienced racial harassment by Elite Investigations LTD or Whole Foods undercover loss prevention, and you feel that you have a valid complaint, please do not hesitate to file a formal grievance on Elite Investigations LTD with the New York Department of State. Your voice counts!

HOSTILE WHOLE FOODS SECURITY TRAUMATIZE PAYING CUSTOMER WITH VERBAL ABUSE – NYC EDITION

 

Long story short, to paraphrase, this former Holy War Foods customer shopped for several items at the NYC Bowery Whole Foods location, prepared a hot food bar container, inadvertently set the container down somewhere as s/he continued shopping, and then forgot to pick the container back up.  S/he then continued on, standing in line, and then paid for their other items.  That’s when Killer Kale Thug Fo’ Life steps in.  All of them.

 

I too was mistreated by Whole Foods security for no reason other than that I dress like a “punk” as the guard was kind enough to point out.

I went through checkout, paid for my items, and at the door was a security guard holding [that] container of prepared foods. He said, ‘You have to speak to head of security.’ 

So I went upstairs with him at which point I was cornered and accused of stealing. I told them I DIDN’T steal, all I did was [absentmindedly sit the container down somewhere and leave it]…and that that’s not a crime. He commanded me to open my bag and I said no. He told me if I didn’t show the contents of my bag he would have me strip searched and call the cops. At this point I was terrified and humiliated as a crowd of employees was allowed to be standing at the door watching this whole exchange. Sobbing, I opened my bag and of course they found nothing but my purchases and my receipts. He told me if I didn’t let them take my picture and sign something stating that I was banned from Whole Foods that they would call the cops.

As they escorted me from the building the head of security continued to verbally berate me, calling me names while I cried and tried to explain I was [just absentminded due to stress]….I am still horrified, humiliated, and enraged. I was a regular shopper at Whole Foods before [that incident].”

KILLER KALE MAFIA FIND ANY REASON TO ROUGH UP HISPANIC MAN

 

Bored, the Killer Kale Mafia look for any reason to tackle, threaten, and detain a Hispanic shopper at Whole Foods – Chicago.  Carelessly violating his civil liberties while his traumatized family looks on in horror.

Hello My name is [REDACTED]. I’m a videographer and reporter for [REDACTED]. Most of my work involves health education, food security activism, human rights campaigns, and nutrition…I’m sad to say that due to recent violent acts against me and my family I am launching a campaign against Whole Foods for harassment and brutality towards customers and discrimination based on class and race.

At approx. 1pm CT at the South Loop Chicago store I was approached by a man who asked me if I shoplifted…He then threatened me with arrest, which would be False Imprisonment in most states…As I was walking toward the exit I was tackled from behind and thrown head first into the wall as my family looked on. I was put in handcuffs while the public watched and dragged through the crowd. I was then taken to the back of the store and told I was being charged with assault and battery.

The man then searched my clothes and went through my wallet and ripped my shoes off my feet. He then said he was calling the police and that I would be in jail soon for “being a punk”.

I…am getting tired of being pushed around by people who abuse their position of authority and are under the illusion that they have the power to harass people and violate their rights.

WHOLE FOODS SECURITY – PURVEYORS OF SERIAL HARASSMENT

 

And artisanal cheese.

The Whole Foods Mafia Thugs, referred to as “Undercover Loss Prevention Officers” in the shiny corporate brochure, have not only created a toxic environment for ethnic customers, but for the poor employees as well.

Basically the employees are scared sh*tless!  Just like you and me.

Hang in there Whole Foods employees!  Hang in there.

 

I have stopped shopping at Whole Foods Market for many years due to the harassing security situation. As a past employee, I have been harassed many times for cutting samples too large – they called this embezzlement! For not charging fellow employees full price for day old pastries, for complaining about having to bake par-baked bread with mold on it–I was told it would “bake” off. I would make the pastries with old fruit, that should have been tossed many days ago…Whole Foods is an illusion and people who shop there are constantly getting ripped off.”

WHOLE FOODS DYSTOPIA, WHERE “THERE IS NO SPANISH”

 

As an Employee for Whole Foods Market on 5th and Wilshire, I have been treated as an outcast by my department…I’m constantly being put down [and] ridiculed…constantly being told i’m not a true Mexican…my own Boss, she was the one that told me there is no Spanish in the Department when I got hired, but she dosent (sic) practice it or reinterate (sic) the Policy, a recent customer complaint, had her tell all not to speak it and then 2 days later she is speaking spanish and joking out load, I said we have a customer, she then told me “Oh Shut Up”!…I have no chance to be heard, I should look forward to coming to work instead I dread it…[I have sought] help for this through different Regional office and corporate office…a waste of time, why do they have a department called Team Member Services Resourses? (sic) SAD but no one cares in this company, its the worse company to work for and the Boss gets away with treating the employees badly no matter what the truth is.”

ORGANIZED CRIME FAM WHOLE FOODS MAFIA ILLEGALLY DETAIN INNOCENT CUSTOMER

 

Because of course, it’s not safe to be a minority walking around inside Whole Foods, all willy-nilly and everything.  The nerve of you people.

 

I was confronted by Loss Prevention who alleged I shoplifted. He presented a badge like he was a police officer and demanded I show the goods. I had nothing in my pockets but he threatened me and took me upstairs. At this point, he made various threats and tried to act again like a member of law enforcement. I had nothing in my pockets, he made a mistake and he did not apologize. Not only was his attitude condescending and arrogant, but downright offensive and racist.

At the end, I was convinced this treatment was due to my ethnicity…Tell these people to get college degrees and dismiss their elitist attitude.”

THE WHOLE FOODS JOURNEY TO ITS COMEUPPANCE

 

 

Thank you, THANK YOU for this! Whole Foods has been getting away with a sort of clandestine mass racial discrimination for years now, and those who speak out with a voice are not heard loud enough. Because basically no one cares. And for Whole Foods to have this process in place, nationwide, where they basically pressure their customers of color to either leave the property or to not feel welcome at all because of their ethnicity, this is a disgusting tactic of modern day segregation and I’m here for the class action lawsuit that is no doubt imminent!

ORGANIZED SYNDICATE WHOLE FOODS LOSS PREVENTION ZERO IN ON THE BROWN ONE – OF COURSE

 

Accompaniment by friends and neighbors does nothing to protect one from the Whole Foods Mafioso.  They will spot you, and they will zero in on you.  They are all knowing.

 

…I brought a friend with me. The entire time a short, stubby security guard followed us…It must be noted: my friend is Hispanic. He was completely uncomfortable the whole time. 

 

WHOLE FOODS LOSS PREVENTION THUG STALKS LONE ASIAN WOMAN

 

Whole Foods’s Killer Kale Mafia

Arbitrarily making customers feel violated and unsafe since 1980.

 

 

The security literally began following me around for no reason once I stepped in and grabbed a shopping cart.  This surely was unnerving…so I was baffled, let alone disturbed…Was this perv checking women out and acting upon his idle fantasy such as, ‘Here comes the chick so let’s look at her ass in order to let otherwise dull working hours pass by faster’, or is this their new way of practicing surveillance?

HIDE YO SKIN, HIDE YO WIFE…

 

This is how Holy War Foods in all of their self righteous, pretentious glory, treats the brown customers.   Not anyone else, just the brown.  NO other customers experience this.

Just the browns.

Because apparently you are not worthy of respect.  Not even as a paying customer.

Go figure.

 

 

 

 

This Whole Foods has a thug working security and parking [who] yelled at my wife on Mother’s Day with my kids in the car…He creates a really hostile atmosphere.

GOONS IN TRIBECA – STALKER AT WHOLE FOODS MARKET

 

When a Whole Foods goon’s thug lifing completely backfires.

 It was a lovely November day, mired by the fact that I stopped by the Whole Foods in Tribeca (New York City) to pick up a few items after my workout, and a loss prevention goon thought it would be a noble idea to stalk and terrorize me by pulling his black ski mask down over his face inside of the store while hovering over me! You literally could not make something like this up! He pulled his ski mask over his face I guess to show me who the boss was. To show him who the REAL boss was, I immediately traipsed over to the 1st precinct and filed a police report on his punk ass!! He wants to be a thug? I got his thug right here…

WHOLE FOODS AND ITS NATIONWIDE PATTERN OF RACE-BASED HARASSMENT, INTIMIDATION, AND UNDERCOVER RACISM

 

Whole Foods has successfully continued to perpetuate an unconcealed pattern of harassment, intimidation, and the selective bullying of patrons whom do not fit the race and class mold of their preferred customer.  Over time, the retailer has effectively alienated many hard working and honest consumers, who have chosen instead to support competitors in search of a normal, stress-free shopping experience. Being that it’s 2018 and all.

WHOLE FOODS MAFIOSO HOSPITALIZE CUSTOMER FOR DARING TO SHOP WHILE BLACK

 

 

 

Nobody was being violent or aggressive, nobody was raising their voice until the [Whole Foods] security guard got involved…putting [the customer] in a chokehold, covered his mouth and nose, suffocated him for a number of seconds, and then threw him out the door onto the concrete face first. So the young man didn’t break his fall because I think he was unconscious. No one who was working for Whole Foods called paramedics at that point.   – Anonymous

 

WFM LOWER EAST SIDE – NEW YORK

Where the kale comes with a side of drama.

   I am a single professional, a woman in the prime of my career, and a former Whole Foods shopper. For more than a year the Whole Foods Mafioso thugs stalked me while I shopped and chose healthy, organic food options. I guess my healthy food choices were the red flag, as they routinely, and more aggressively darted across the market the minute I walked in through the doors and dared show my brown face in public. It actually took me several months to catch on to the fact that the Whole Foods Mafia had undercover security, as I honestly was never paying much attention while caringly writing down the food bin number of my organic, raw, unsalted cashews. How naive of me to think that the homeless looking thug that seemed to always be lingering right next to me week after week was actually there to watch my every move, because, of course, why else would I be there twice a week but to commit a crime? After months of aggressive harassment I finally gave up on spending my hard earned money with the Whole Foods Mafioso and I now purchase my kale in a peaceful environment where I am treated with respect and assumed to be a law abiding citizen until proven otherwise.         – Anonymous

“ORGANIC AND RACIST”

  If you happen to be a person of color & you have a duffel bag… you just may be racially profiled. That’s what happened to me right in front of the cashier as I made my purchase. An undercover security man rolled up on me saying ‘someone’ saw me put something in the bag but if I took it out & paid fir [sic], it wouldn’t be a problem.  I told him to look inside and tell me what you see as I unzipped it. After he saw it was clean,  he said thanks & walks off.  All this on the last day of Black History Month! Organic and racist!
