‘We are aware of an incident at the mall and are working closely with local law enforcement as they continue their investigation,’ the statement read. [snip]
As shops opened back up again on Friday morning:
- A man was shot dead and his brother was wounded at a Macy’s store in New Jersey during an early morning shooting on Friday
- A person was shot dead in a road rage incident in a Walmart parking lot in Reno, Nevada on Thursday night
- A man suffered a gunshot wound after shots were fired in Memphis, Tennessee on Thursday around 11.15pm
- Video emerged showing people fighting over everything, including towels worth just $1.60
One has to believe that if you are going to fight,it should be over something worthwhile. Do towels fall into that category?
Walmart shoppers fight over towels, toys at Black Friday sale
Video from a Walmart in Bainbridge, Georgia shows shoppers fighting to grab every last towel from the display.
Multiple women stacked up as many towels as they could before they were gone.
When given the signal, shoppers began grabbing the large boxes as quickly as they could, with one man digging for the bottom box and nearly losing his pants.
He repeatedly threw elbows and slaps, and fought off another man trying to grab the box, before another tried to claim it, too. [snip]
