Why Wait For Black Friday to Start the Insanity, Mayhem and Bad Behavior When You Have Thanksgiving Day …Brawl Starts at Rialto, CA Walmart
The insanity does not even wait until “Black Friday” these days as some businesses have decided to open on Thanksgiving Day …
Police were called to the Walmart in Rialto, CA to break up a fight between two men that sent one police officer to the hospital. More than 3200 people lined up to wait for the 8 pm opening at the Walmart when the store made the decision to open the doors at 7 pm instead. And the chaos began. What could possibly go wrong with a massive crowd like this waiting to charge into a store? All of the people involved in the fights were taken into custody, but one of the men involved in the fight outside was arrested for suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon.
Police officers descended on Walmart in Rialto after a brawl between two men injured a police officer who tried to break up the fight Thursday night.
The injured officer was transported to St. Bernardine Medical Center in San Bernardino with a broken wrist, police officials said.
A Walmart manager said the doors were originally scheduled to open at 8 p.m. but with the more than 3,000 people in line they made the decision to open the doors early, which police said led to the melee.
Police said there were three fights total shortly after 7 p.m. at the store at 1610 S. Riverside Ave., two of which were inside over merchandise and the third outside that caused injury to the officer.
Great, so now we can expect shoppers behaving badly as stores like Macy’s, the Gap and Target opened their stores on Thanksgiving Day to create “Black Thursday.” Pretty soon Black Friday will go the way of the DoDo as all chain stores will be opening on Thursday night to get the jump on sales and insanity.
Tensions were high at the retail giant’s Rialto location because shoppers were cutting in line, said Sgt. Nicholas Borchard, with the Rialto Police Department.
At least three people were involved in the brawl and two have been taken into custody, Borchard said. A police officer broke his wrist as he broke up the brawl.
The incident happened at 7 on Thanksgiving night at a Walmart at 1610 Riverside Ave.
UPDATE II: More Bad Behavior.
- A man in Claypool Hill, West Virginia, was slashed to the bone with a knife after threatening another man with a gun in an argument over a Wal-Mart parking spot, Tazewell County Sheriff Brian Hieatt told NBC station WVVA. Both faced charges after the incident that happened at 6:30 p.m. the station reported.
- Another shopper was charged with aggravated assault on a police officer after getting into an argument with a New Jersey Wal-Mart store manager about a television set, police told NBC New York. Officers arrived at the scene at 6:39 p.m. and once they had pacified the customer they also charged the shopper with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Garfield police told the station.
Talk about providing the “black” in Black Friday … This might be the worse dsplay of behavior of all of the heinous events of Black Friday. Sorry, but there is a special place in hell for you.
There is sick and then there is this. A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in southern Florida offered a black Friday discount that including $10 off a visit to the abortion center. Unreal. The Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast offered the $10 off discount. Imagine that there are those who think so little of life. So glad that Planned Parenthood think that they can drum up business with Black Friday discounts. I hate to be there for your day of reckoning. As aptly stated by the PJ Tatler, “Even if you are pro-choice, the inappropriateness and tastelessness of such a “discount” has to disturb you. And if anything, it should renew calls for defunding the organization.”
A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in souther Florida is offering a black Friday discount — including $10 off a visit to the abortion center today. Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast offered the special, saying, “Visit our West Palm Beach or Kendall Health Center for special after Thanksgiving savings on Friday, November 23rd.”
Pro-life blogger Jill Stanek noticed the Black Friday discount and responded, “Planned Parenthood brings new meaning to the term, “Black Friday,” doesn’t it?”
A Sign of the Zombie Apocalypse? Nope Just People Acting like Fools on Black Friday … Gunshots, Robbery and Unruly Behavior, Oh My
One might think that the following is a sign of the Zombie Apocalypse. Sadly, it is the masses acting like souless zombie.
Across America yesterday, massive mob of foolish individuals knocked down the sales associates, fought with each other, kicked, punched and trampled over each other all in the name of Black Friday. No better or worse as the case may be, example of this behavior was at the Victoria Secrets at Woodland Hills Mall in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The masses did not act any better at the Victoria Secrets in the Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, KS either.
UPDATE I: Dateline San Antonio, TX … man pulls gun on shopper who cuts line and punched shopper in the face. Those rowdy, inconsiderate idiots best beware of the those who have a valid conceal gun permit.
UPDATE II:Black Friday shoppers smash door at Urban Outfitters injuring about five people in, Santa Monica, CA.
UPDATE III: Black Friday Violence: 2 Shot Outside Walmart in Florida.
DISGRACEFUL: Once again we are presented with what is not the reason for the season … What the hell has become of our country?
Sadly, folks reduced themselves to the lowest level of existence as they battled each other on Black Friday over cell phones. WTF!!! These fools battled, pushed, shoved to get phones as if they were Haitian refugees fighting for food following a massive and terrible earthquake. However, those in Hati were starving, Note to the morons fighting over phones … IT’S A FRIGGIN PHONE!!! Don’t you know that you can get your own free Obama phone?
I guess when we have record number of Americans living on Food Stamps and record number of Americans unemployed, underemployed and no longer looking, this is what society gets reduced to.
What Would Jesus Say? Black Friday 2012 … Thousands of Teen Girls & Young Women Crowd Entrance at Victoria’s Secret Pink at Oak Park Mall in Overland Park, KS
What would Jesus say?
Sorry, but I long for the days of old when I did not have to see individuals making fools of themselves on Black Friday, acting like a bunch of savages who are without conscience, thought and restraint. All this in the name of getting a sale or bargain price? I can dare say that pretty much everyone in this crowd could not provide a educated guess as to the “reason for the season”. As reported at Action 41 News, thousands of teens and young woman crowded the entrance of a Victoria’s Secret in Overland Park, Kansas all in the name of “Black Friday”.
Let me just say this, is it any wonder why so many people long for the days of yesterday when its citizens were not such mind numb zombies, captives of marketing. Take a good look at yourselves, this is hardly something to be proud of. What the hell ever happened to my country?
It kind of looked like a Justin Bieber concert.
What seemed like thousands of teen girls and young women crowded the entrance at Victoria’s Secret Pink at Oak Park Mall as it prepared to open the gate to Black Friday shoppers at midnight the day after Thanksgiving.
Mall security guards attempted to control the crowd outside the store, which was really more like a hundred or so, as the gate went up. But the crowd was pushing its way in, so a store manager had to step in.
