Porter Ranch Wal-Mart Black Friday shoppers were in for a shock when some of them were pepper sprayed in the mad rush, not by the police or staff, but by a woman who wanted to get a good deal on an Xbox 360.
What a shame that things turned out so violent.
This is why I don't do Black Friday, too many horror stories.
Wow this was bad. My friends at a Miami store waited in like for 6 hours, then another 3 hours in the store itself...geebus
Doesn't surprise me. Given that people were killed last year at either the Target or Walmart over by me, this isn't too much of a shock. The people were trampled by the mad rush to get items in the store. What surprises me is that fact that she wasn't caught or immediately detained. Sure things are crazy but a woman assaulting multiple people? Wouldn't someone notice? Lol.
walmart employee was trampled in 2008
Stupid people. :| Such ignorance and neglect....not to mention selfishness over a few bucks. :|
First stories start to pop up!
A friend of mine was there, apparently she also pepper sprayed children in the eyes.
WHAT?! That's horrible.
Damn, I've experienced waiting and being in a human traffic jam for an hour or more during Christmas shopping season in my country but never experienced anything like this. Hope my country would never have a black friday, and now I know why it's called black friday. You go home with black injuries. XD
This is why stores should start organizing these things better. There should be number meters OUTSIDE the front of the store similar to the ones at doctors offices, people get a ticket as they arrive then wait in line, as their number is called they go in and pick out what they want, no more than 5 or 6 people in the store at a time. Anyone pushes/shoves/runs to get ahead or any other stupidity and they are immediatly forceably removed from the store property and banned from returning for a minimum 30 days.
I hope someone punches her in the ovary, hard.
