Twenty people, including children, were injured when a woman at a San Fernando Valley Walmart store used mace against other customers in what authorities referred to as a “competitive shopping” incident. […]
Juan Castro, who was at the scene and took cell phone video of the aftermath, told KCBS correspondent Suraya Fadel, “Just as they started to unwrap everything, all hell broke loose and everybody just swarmed. And in the middle of the parade, some lady just started (pepper spraying) the crowd,” he said. “There were two ladies on the side of me that started fighting.”
Castro said customers were “just trampling over people, people shoving each other. … There were a lot people who got it in their eyes, so they were burning. They were screaming, crying. It was bad.“
“Bad” is a little mild. “Bad” is when Santa farts while you’re sitting on his knee. “Collective violent psychotic episode” might be a more accurate way to describe this Walmart Black Friday “competitive shopping” lunacy. (The term “competitive shopping” deserves a post of its own.)
Ho ho ho! Don’t mace me, bro!
UPDATE: Black Friday Competitive Shopping ratchets up the Aggressive Crazy. Ho ho ho! Don’t taze me, bro!
I can just imagine Black Friday 2012…
UPDATE II: LOL.
