Ringing in the holiday cheer by pepper-spraying Black Friday shoppers
We’re now in full Christmas shopping swing. That’s because it’s Friday, Black Friday, gotta buy stuff on Black Friday.
I’ve only braved the Black Friday crowds once or twice before. Unless I’m going to save a couple hundred bucks, it’s just not worth the headache. Or temporary blindness.
Black Friday has reached a new level of crazy, and not just because it now starts in mostly full force on Thanksgiving. Instead, blame the woman accused of pepper-spraying a bunch of other shoppers at a Wal-Mart in the San Fernando Valley who didn’t want to share the deals. From the Daily News:
Twenty people were treated for minor injuries. The woman then reportedly paid for an Xbox and left.
