(Reuters) – Black Friday turned into a black mark against American shoppers as riotous crowds brawled over video games, waffle irons and towels, drawing international condemnation and even raising questions about the state of humanity.”
SMH! (For those not familiar with Twitter and Facebook shorthand jargon, smh means “Shaking my head.”)
I just watched a YouTube video of people shoving and pulling each other over $1.88 towels. I read how a woman pepper sprayed unsuspecting midnight shoppers just so she could be the first to grab the newest XBox game. New York deal seekers, upset that that Hollister wasn’t opening for late-night shopping, broke in to the store and took what they wanted. The list continues with a grandfather being shoved to the ground at a Walmart right in front of his grandson, and people stepping on each other as they fought over $2 waffle irons.
