Release of new Air Jordans leads to tramplings and gunfire

Huge crowds that came out to purchase Nike Air Jordan shoes Friday caused disruptions at two California shopping centers.

In Vallejo, a shot was fired at a mall as a line of more than 1,000 people waited to purchase the shoes. No one was hurt, but shoppers were told to clear the area. Police have arrested a suspect in the case, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Customers had to wait several hours before returning to purchase shoes.

This for $180 pair of basketball shoes.

Someone was shot and killed in Maryland too.

THIS is one of many things that is wrong with America. People in this world are Animals. Killing someone over a pair of shoes? Really? What has America come to? This is pretty sad.

Im glad my parents had the good sense to explain to me that looking cool via mass hysteria was a bad thing growing up. I get that they are "Jordans" but fancy shoes as a status symbol, no thanks.

I dare anyone to convince me that if the social structure breaks down with no recovery on the horizon, there is no food, heat, medical services, law enforcement services, electricity, sanitary services (including sewage), rescue or fire services that this will be the scene only it will be instant, brutal killings in the cities.

Rural and suburban, there will be banding together to ready for these city locusts coming to clean everything out.

So true - look what happened here in London this summer, just the hint that police couldn't handle the situation and all the scumbags came out of the woodwork to help themselves to whatever they could grab. It doesn't take much, heaven help us if there was a massive power cut or if the police went on strike - it would all happen again in an instant.

Now it's happened once, the second time will be so much easier...

I live in the Detroit area.

Nothing new here, this used to happen all the time back in the late 80"s early 90"s

People getting shot for sunglasses and jackets was not uncommon.

Don't know why I'm replying to you, yeah they are mostly black people (because of the area and culture), but I think I see an Asian girl with glasses and a ponytail at around 2-5 seconds in the video. Just saying......

There are plenty of videos of white people acting the same way. The video in the OP is just in a area with more black people.

Let's watch a video of black AND white people acting the same way to remind us that any kind of human can act crazy.

It was 50/50 black and white people all acting crazy over products. I'm starting to think your trolling.

This is a problem with cultures more than a racial issues. It just happens to be that a lot of areas with black people have a culture that makes people go crazy over Air Jordans, it's a really crappy culture.

I have seen many examples in my life in London, of white people, pakistanis, black people etc doing crazy crap based on certain cultures in this country.

Anyone in the UK knows how annoying Chavs can be haha.

Do you put all white people in the same category when you see skater dudes, biker gangs, goths, gangsta wannabes etc etc? No you don't because you know that they all act a certain way based on a culture they follow.
