No.. the guy wantes to cause a scene. He wanted a youtube video and to win his gf back. Come on.. I can't believe you guys. You are all smarter than this I hope.
Throwing a bunch of one dollar bills down on hundreds of shoppers isn't giving money away in a way that helps anyone. Its trying to cause a ruckus. In the stores the control the area where the items on sale go. This was uncontrolled. Imagine a kid happened to be where the guy threw the money down and the kid was trampled?
So a couple hundred people got 3 bucks each, what a guy.
Wrabbit your smarter than that. How does a ton of people fighting over dollar bills help them? Its a mob of peo ple snatching singles. How much do you think the majority of people got (well the people that weren't fighting and snatching bills from others hands)? Hewanted to cause a scene. Believing otherwise Iis naive.
How's about a guy throws down $1000 in notes, people go crazy and rush to get the cash....a child gets knocked out of a push chair and in the crush is seriously injured.....the guy that threw the money didn't mean this to happen.....but it did.

So you figure he's lying to the cops and media about simply feeling generous and choosing this as a method to spread a little to a lot of people at once?
There are far better ways of doing something nice. In this situation it simply seems as if he actually wanted some drama to mock the people running/trampling over each other for the couple of dollars.
More recently, Black Friday has been promoted to nations outside of North America such as the United Kingdom by major online retailers like Amazon and Apple. In 2013 ASDA (part of Walmart) announced its "Walmart's Black Friday by ASDA" campaign promoting the Black Friday concept in the UK. A number of other online and instore companies are now celebrating the American tradition.
You are either naive or stubborn because its obvious to anyone with any common sense that the police arrested this man because he caused a disruption and couls have endangered people.
Random act of kindness being met with bands of grinches even if it was a stunt for his youtube channel as is being touted.
