Black Friday is upon us, which means trouble's afoot across the nation. Overzealous shoppers will do anything for a deal, including lying, fighting, and dragging a police officer with a car.
We know Black Friday deals are a sham. We feel terrible for the souls forced to work retail on the holidays, cutting short their own Thanksgiving dinners so the masses may shop at earlier hours every year in pursuit of that one budget-busting deal. And yet, every year, we're greeted with more violence and chaos the morning after we come together as family. Aren't the holidays wonderful?
Two separate Walmart fight videos have emerged. The first, per Business Insider, takes place inside a Walmart in Elkin, North Carolina. A mob of people jostle for flat-screen TVs, when all of a sudden tensions rise and a small fight breaks out. One man puts down his TV to pick up and slam another man, who might have been attacking someone else. A woman screams "oh my God!" as this goes on. Security does little to nothing to stop the violence.
The uploader says he was thrown out for recording the video while the violent offenders he documented weren't approached by security. Pick your battles, indeed.
