The latest allegation of racial profiling among Macy’s security comes from a former NYPD officer who says the guards there unfairly accused her of shoplifting during a Black Friday sale last year, a charge that wound up costing her her job. Jenny Mendez was eventually found not guilty of the theft, but the accusation during her first probationary year on the force killed her career, she said. The store detective admitted in court to lying in his report by saying she had confessed, her lawsuit claims. Not a good look, Macy’s.
