Black Friday 2011: A soul-crushing compilation of humanity at its worst

Categories: Holidays, Media

Tear it to shreds, America.
It's Black Friday in America. When flat-screen TV's at deep discounts cause annual madness. It's like that scene in 28 Days Later, when a cluster of people become infected with rage and turn on one another like mindless flesh-craving monsters.

Here's a compilation of videos from today, Black Friday 2011.

5. Xbox Crush
Location: A Walmart in Falcon, Colorado
Notably Sad Event: A crowd of shoppers around Xbox video games get told to "STOP PUSHING! BACK UP, BACK UP, BACK UP!" while it appears people get forcibly pushed back. It's just a video game, everyone.

4. The Texas Trample
Location: A Walmart in Mesquite, Texas
Notably Sad Events: A woman almost being trampled, another woman crying and a man yelling "GET THE FUCK UP!" over the chaos.

3. A Child's Call to Reason
Location: A Walmart in Kansas City, Missouri
Notably Sad Events: Chilren shrieking, adults yelling, what appears to be a box that once held video games being hoisted into the air like a trash can during a riot, and what sounds like a child, telling no one in particular, "Guys, geez!"

The worst two are on Page 2.

How sad this is. It's not like this is food or seething that anyone "needs". This is crap that no one needs, and prob doesn't even really want -- creating 'mob mentality'. Yikes

Protests in Tahrir Square, tramplings in Walmart. No wonder the rest of the world hates America.

I wish I could be surprised about this, but sadly I'm not. Since the majority of the melees/robberies/shootings/stabbings/pepper-sprayings/general asseries take place over the game consoles, why don't these stores just put the palettes of game consoles in large cages, smear the floors with margarine and put all the wackadoos in them to do cage matches over the merchandise? Live stream the action, maybe even pay-per-view them to make a few bucks, and everybody wins.
