Amazon has resisted calls to ban "Blue Lives Murder" merchandise from its website. Amazon says it has a policy against the sale of "offensive and controversial materials," but the "Blue Lives Murder" merchandise is still for sale.

"Blue Lives Murder" t-shirts depicts a law enforcement officer clubbing people with his nightstick. The merchandise enraged law enforcement officials who say they are canceling their Amazon Prime subscriptions.

According to SaraCarter.com, the following email exchange between an Amazon employee and a customer was posted on Facebook.com:

The customer service response: "Let me check. We stand in solidarity with our Black employees, customers, and communities, and are committed to helping build a country and world where everyone can live with dignity and free from fear. As a part of that effort, Amazon will donate a total of $10 million to organizations that are working to bring about social justice and improve the lives of Black and African Americans. For more information, please visit the Amazon Day One blog."

Customer: "Okay, so I'm going to take that as you don't support our law enforcement. Thanks for letting me know. I'll be sure to spread the world."

The government stepped in after two Tennessee brothers were accused of attempting to sell 17,000 bottles of hand sanitizer for $70 each during the coronavirus outbreak.

Matt and Noah Colvin thought they would make a killing when they attempted to sell 17,000 bottles for $70 each on Amazon.com. But Amazon blocked the sale, and the brothers were stuck with 17,000 bottles that they couldn't unload.

The Colvin brothers bragged that they were making "crazy money" online. They told reporters they drove 1,000 miles all over Kentucky and Tennessee buying bottles of hand sanitizer and other anti-viral products to take advantage of the pandemic.

The government asses stiff fines and jail time to lawbreakers who enrich themselves through price gouging during shortages.

After the government stepped in and opened an investigation into price gouging, the brothers quickly donated the 17,000 bottles.

CrimeOnline.com went to the brothers' storage unit and observed the Tennessee state's attorney's office carting off the bottles and supplies. The AG's office made multiple trips to the storage unit to haul most of the bottles off.

According to NBC3, the brothers donated the remaining bottles to a local church.

Samantha Fisher of the Tennessee Attorney General's office said the brothers still face a hefty fine for price gouging. The fine might wipe out their "crazy" earnings.
