The Shoplifter Incident - Introduction Just before 10:00 PM on March 7, 2003, five lives were going to change forever. Sergeant Marcus Young of the Ukiah, California Police Department was on patrol with a 17-year old ride-along cadet named Julian Covella. They got a call of a "shoplifter in custody" at the local Wal-Mart Superstore. It seemed that an 18-year-old female named Monica Winnie had been caught shoplifting by Wal-Mart security guard Brett Schott. A few minutes later, when they moved outside, the shoplifter's boyfriend, Neal Beckman, appeared in the parking lot wearing two horns tattooed on his forehead and a goatee on his face shaped to make him look like the devil. He approached the security guard and the two officers who had arrived on the scene. The incident hit headlines. The United States Department of Justice made formal recognition of the incident in 2003. The National Rifle Association, too, highlighted the events. Larry Smith's October 2004 PARADE Magazine article was titled "Officer Down…But Not Out." That same month, America's Most Wanted did a story on the incident, titled "Just An Average Ride Along?" and posted video clips on their website. "One Gun, No Hands: The Marcus Young Incident" was the title of the story as it appeared in a Fall 2004 issue of American Handgunner. Law OfficerMagazine has featured the story - twice - with the latest article, a June 2008 story titled "Officer Down: The Marcus Young Incident," featuring pictures of the "horned" Beckman and sketches of the scene itself. As Sgt. Young walked with the shoplifter to the patrol car in the parking lot, boyfriend Neal Beckman drew nearer. Covella, Sgt. Young's cadet partner, and Schott, the unarmed security guard, looked on. What happened next would be written about and analyzed in law enforcement circles and beyond, and it provides the "police incident" for your course project. Use the sources mentioned in the incident above to locate and read the full story of what happened. You will need to find the complete story to help you complete this assignment.
