Target Shopper Demands ‘Reparations’ — Security Guard Punches Her in the Face

Virginia Kruta, Daily Wire, April 12, 2023

A Target shopper demanded “reparations” from her local store – in the form of $1,000 worth of groceries – and got punched in the face instead.

{snip} The shopper, a black woman who was reportedly identified as Karen Ivery, first told her cashier that she was entitled to reparations that would cover the cost of her purchases — and then demanded to see the manager. When the manager approached, Ivery continued to demand “reparations,” shouting at the manager aggressively and eventually backing her into the cafe at the front of the store.


Zach Cotter, a store loss-prevention officer, intervened when Ivery backed the manager into the store’s cafe — and she turned on him, aggressively approaching as he backed into a nearby security office. He tried to close the door once he got into the office, but Ivery pushed her way in and continued to shout at him. Backed into a corner in the office, Cotter punched Ivery in the face, knocking her to the ground.

When police came in, Cotter explained what had happened and then police asked Ivery whether or not she was all right. {snip}


She went on to say that when it became clear that Target was not willing to meet her demands, she had decided to “take a stand.”

“This is my Rosa Parks moment, dude,” she said to the police officer. {snip}
