Fights break out in stores on Black Friday every year. The scramble for the severely lower-priced items sometimes causes things to heat up. With the giant chaotic mob of people, it is not a surprise that people became angry.
In a Los Angeles Walmart, one furious customer used pepper spray to fend off people from the Xbox aisle.
One of the worst cases of the Black Friday chaos took place in northern California, where an armed robber shot a customer outside of a store. However, it is not entirely the fault of the customer.
One store had a large amount of people waiting outside for a game system. However, the store had only a few in stock. Solution? The employees set out some chairs, and whoever was sitting in those chairs when the store opened would get a game system. As you would expect, there was a scary scramble for the chairs.
Even with this being said, Black Friday shopping is perfectly fine, as long as you stay safe. Great deals are worth getting—just do not get into fights. Happy holidays, Mesa!
