All kinds of Black Friday madness happening in the U.S. today as maniacal shoppers go nuts over sales and limited merchandise.

Reports of some shootings as well.

This article has some videos of the insanity.

Please post your own experiences and other stories as this continues to unfold.

Walmart shoppers fight over towels, toys at Black Friday sale

Some stores are starting Black Friday sales early, and that means that pandemonium is starting earlier, too.

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.

Meanwhile, Houston Walmart shoppers tussled over a $99 12-Volt kiddie convertible.

Black Friday violence: Shootings at Nevada Walmart, New Jersey Macy’s, Tennessee mall kill 2, injure 2


At least four people were shot across the country during Black Friday sales, including a Walmart customer who died in a fight over a parking space.

Three separate shootings — at a New Jersey Macy’s, a Tennessee mall and a Nevada Walmart — killed two people and wounded two more. All the attacks happened outside of the stores as holiday shoppers inside loaded up on door busters and deals.

Demond Cottman, 20, was shot and killed around 1 a.m. in front of a mall in Mays Landing, CBS Philadelphia reported.

Fighting over imagined 'bargains'. So sad is the world we live in.

My children went shopping last night and said that things were fairly tame.

I wonder, though, how much 'normal' chaos is attributed to black Friday even if it is not.

This example...
wreg.com...

I haven't read through all of the stories in the Lordcomac's link but, this one popped out at me because well, it was the first one and it IS Memphis so, I would expect shootings in parking lots anyway.

Gosh, that's sad too isn't it?

oh i do hope there are some good shopping chaos videos this year. I dont want anyone to die but i simply cannot resist watching perfectly civilized people descend into animalism over chinese plastic on sale for 1 dollar cheaper than it normally sells.

I'm surprised I haven't seen any fights-to-death over those hatchables toys.

Its shameful to see the human species brought down to these depths.

Rabid consumerism and materialism has ruined whatever integrity people had left.

Well I know if I were a terrorist, THIS would be the day to wreak havoc. Just set up outside of any mall or Walmart and give away pre-loaded pressure cookers....boxed and wrapped. Call each one that night and voila...instant mayhem.

You can send me one if you end up with too many


Today at a new Costco there were irate drivers trying to get the best parking spots, but inside it was tame.

Haven't had a television since they switched to the flat screen digital models years ago.

I don't think of it as Black Friday, I think of it as Black Plague, which I would probably rather have than to go Walmart.
Ever.

You can't beat a high quality Egyptian cotton towel, dude.

I used to assume only idiots would get into a fight over a Black Friday sale item.

Then, like an idiot, I made the mistake of waiting outside a Best Buy in arctic temperatures without a portable heater, from six in the evening until 4pm the next morning. By the time I got through the front door, I was so tired, wired and cold that i just wanted to go home and curl up in bed with my comforter. But Best Buy, knowing this was their chance to make or break their fiscal year, made us jump through a thousand hoops instead of just giving us the merchandise.

I did NOT get into a fight. But I did tell a BB employee to go F himself.

And I'm now completely amazed that fights don't happen at every single one of these events.

P.S.

I now refuse to participate in Black Friday Doorbuster sales.

The day the corporations realised they could bring this madness over to the UK was a dark day. A dark day indeed.

I try to avoid going out at all on "black Friday".

I do wonder...is "Egyptian cotton" really from Egypt, or is it a kind of cotton plant?

Hm...I must find out or it's going to drive me nuts!

Okay, apparently it is!



Egyptian cotton comes from the species Gossypium Barbadense, which is the same plant that Pima cotton comes from. However, the climate in Egypt, where Egyptian cotton is grown, produces a longer staple (fibers) than any other cotton. These long fibers are spun into extra-fine threads, which are then woven into a high-quality fabric.
