There’s always a lot of news coverage for Black Friday (*shudder*), and any incidents that crop up are trumpeted, but other than a few isolated idiots (see other posts) there wasn’t really much going on. Considering how many shoppers were out yesterday (millions nationwide) it could have been much worse. Just one crazy woman with a loaded can of pepper spray, an over-enthusiastic off-duty cop, and a few robbery/shootings outside retail stores. Check this story.  This one says there were only 15 people caught in the woman’s spray-for-all. Then there were the robberies, or attempted robberies might be a better description. I hesitate to call those specifically related to Black Friday (*shudder*) other than they happened to occur on that day. Other than that the average shopper got to pack themselves into box stores like sardines and push and shove their way to awesome (or are they?) deals. I still don’t understand the appeal, but hey – I hate shopping anyway.
