Black Friday 2015 rioting: a round-up of the chaos, fighting, pushing & shoving from America's malls

http://www.masslive.com/news/index.ssf/2015/11/black_friday_2015_rioting_a_ro.html

Kentucky would appear to have taken the early lead in Black Friday disturbances , as two separate videos from fighting from two different malls began circulating over social media.


In Lexington, Kentucky, two men brawled in the food court of Mall St. Matthews, reports the New York Daily News. As they wrestled on the floor, a woman who was unable to get out of the way was knocked over.

In the second incident, video shows a group of men wildly throwing punches in the walkway of a mall in Florence, Kentucky.

It is unclear what started it, but at this point does that even matter?

What Kentucky offered in fisticuffs, Saginaw, Michigan provided unbridled audacity. Video posted on Youtube shows a crowd lapsing into bedlam over discounted veggie steamers. At one point an unknown woman grabs a veggie steamer cooker right from the arms of a child. This, of course, leads the child's mother and the woman to start fighting

2. I have to say I have never ever been to one. I never go to the big stores

the week before Christmas any more. I went once about 30 years ago and almost freaked out. I got so claustrophobic I had to get out after about 5 minutes. Never again. Being bi Polar and with mild schizophrenia, I just can not handle being around that many crazy people at the same time.

3. The US is descending into madness and violence I think at times like this, and quickly.

4. I think some of it is driven by resellers

People desperately trying to get the 1 or 2 'doorbusters' (what a name, to embrace incidents of violence!) in order to resell for a profit on ebay.

Why else spend days in line for a 50 dollar markdown on some plastic crap?
