A blacker Friday than most

Seriously, what the fuck is wrong with people? On the bright side, I suppose a few people saved a dollar and a half on singing statues of Santa Claus and 5-pound bags of holiday M&Ms.
People actually complained that the Walmart store was closing temporarily (just for a few hours) because one of the staff was trampled to death.
At least that death was accidental, out in California, they are having shootouts in the Toys R Us.
You are all getting coal this year.

Blame the company marketeers. They try to make everything an "event" that can't be missed. Delibrate short supply, last chance items, enticing hordes of people in one time deals. This is not new. I first realized this tactic back in cabbage patch kids way back when. A age old plan to create a buzz.. a frenzy, and hence name recognition fo your store. The value is real sad to say. The real horror though is this is not the first flash mob discount frenzy to kill or injure, and not the last.
